Michael Shannon Creeps The Bejesus Out Of You In 'The Iceman' Trailer

He'll kill you, then he'll read his kids a bedtime story. We've seen how disturbing Michael Shannon can be as a G-Man in Boardwalk Empire, and as a family man in the indie film Take Shelter, so it should be no surprise that when he goes full evil, it's a spectacle to behold. Such is his role in The Iceman as Richard Kulinski, one of the most notorious hitmen of all time. Good rule of thumb: Never cross Michael Shannon. Don't even talk to him. You'd probably be safer petting a wild tiger. Take a look.

Michael Shannon Is More Troubled Than Normal In 'Take Shelter'

Michael Shannon has decided that he's going to ride this wave of playing troubled, intense men until it breaks. Did you ever think to yourself, "What if they made a movie like Evan Almighty, but it wasn't completely terrible?" Well, Michael Shannon and the team behind Take Shelter addresses that very question. In this haunting slice of Americana (which is a little reminiscent of M. Night's last decent film Signs) Shannon runs a lower-class rural household faced with myriad problems. However, his priorities fall under scrutiny as he builds a storm shelter after repeated visions of an apocalyptic storm. See? It's just like Evan Almighty. Or "the story of Noah" if you want to harken all the way back to Evan's source material. Of course, no one plays "intense" like Michael Shannon does, so it should be fascinating to see how he channels a man obsessed. The fact that he just looks like a Dust Bowl-era farmer to begin with only sweetens the deal.


TLC Takes Spectacle Television To New Heights With 'All-American Muslim'

They opted out of the working title 'Look At These Weird Muslims!' TLC, realizing that they've already done midgets, polygamists, and families that breed like rabbits, have decided to branch out with a show that lets middle America know that there are at least five Muslim families that aren't currently plotting to blow up our monuments, hospitals, and schools. All-American Muslim follows five Muslim families that reside in Dearborn, Michigan, a town with the highest density of Muslims in the United States. In an interview with AOLTV (why, AOLTV?), two of the families shed some light on what the series is and isn't about. Hint: They won't be up to Jersey Shore-like antics, which is a shame, because that's probably the only circumstance under which I would watch this show. Assuming this show accomplishes its goal and depicts the five families as normal, well-adjusted Americans (which I'm sure they are), why the hell would anyone watch it? The only way this would serve as any sort of entertainment is if the subjects were doing very strange things (and by "strange," I don't mean praying to Mecca or practicing Islam). It sounds like a Muslim The Osbournes. Hmmm. Maybe I will watch it. Also, don't be alarmed or unsettled for the U.S. Army recruiting ad that is placed before this video. I'm sure that's....just a coincidence. Geez, TLC, you're really firing on all cylinders here, aren't you? 


Tweens And Creeps Take Note: Disney's 'Prom' Trailer Is Here

The biggest night ever for the awkward kid, pretty girl, outcast, token black couple, and kid planning to lose his virginity! Ah, prom! Remember that magical night? That unforgettable evening where you spent a lot of money on a tux, limo, and corsage all because your platonic female friend's older boyfriend didn't want to go with her? No, just me? Well, either way, that's not the plot of the upcoming Disney film Prom, which revolves around that ever so pivotal (at least in movies) night in the lives of several archetypal teenagers.

The film stars Aimee Teegarden, Cameron Monaghan, and Nicholas Braun, and it's in theaters April 29th. It promises to be fun for the whole family!* *If you're 12 years old and an orphan.


‘Hell On Wheels’ Gives AMC Its Own ‘Deadwood’

Revenge, Railroads, Native Americans: Yup. It's a Western all right. AMC is not content sitting on their goodwill for one second, choosing to forge ahead with original programming occupying every genre on God's green earth. Today's dispatch is from AMC's Department of Western Affairs - "Deadwood" Division. Premiering late this year, "Hell on Wheels" follows a Confederate soldier, played by Anson Mount, heading west to find the Union men who killed his wife. Who knew that revenge would play such a big theme in a Western? Oh. Everyone. Costarring in "Hell on Wheels" are Common, Dominique McElligott, Colm Meaney, Ben Esler, Philip Burke and Eddie Spears. Cause really, who could possibly imagine the Western frontier without Common? Draw your own conclusions from this trailer, but only after I give you mine. It looks 100% percent like AMC's version of "Deadwood." Which is by no means a bad thing, but also not as pleasantly surprising as "Walking Dead,""Breaking Bad," or"Mad Men." Much like I think of"Boardwalk Empire" on HBO, this show will probably turn out very well, but with few surprises. Anyway, that's my inference from 90 seconds of video. What thinks you?


Behold, The Trailer For Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium'

How do you like these space apples? Neill Blomkamp, who made his debut with an inventive sci-fi film about a man leveling out class inequality with the aid of advanced weaponry, is back with Elysium, a different inventive sci-fi film about a man leveling out class inequality with the aid of advanced weaponry. In the future, the wealthy live free of poverty and illness on the space station Elysium. While the rest of us poor mooks live on Earth like a bunch of sick losers. Matt Damon stars as an ex-con on Earth who uses a weaponized exoskeleton to aid his mission to break into Elysium, rip killer robots apart with his bare hands, and find a cure for the cancer that is rapidly


Did Michael Bay Use The Same Incomprehensible Footage In Two Movies?

It's his footage, he'll use it as much as he wants! Alfred Hitchcock once said that "self-plagiarism is style." Well, if that's the case, Michael Bay must be one stylish son of a bitch. YouTube eagle-eye "cinefilojermain23" posted a shot-for-shot comparison of footage in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Michael Bay's earlier The Island, and as you can see above, the similarities are startling. [post-album postid="218333" item="2"]If this gets the attention of Michael Bay (and at almost 800,000 hits as of this writing, it's likely that it will), he'll probably just laugh it off, since it is his footage, after all. Still, it is pretty unusual for a big-budget blockbuster to use warmed-over footage like an episode of Battlestar Galactica from the 70s. (The Hollywood Reporter)
