Watch The Trailer For 'Frank', Not Starring Michael Fassbender's Face

He's given his expressions a time out. With his head decapitated at the end of Prometheus, Michael Fassbender has been on the lookout for a replacement. He seems to have found one in the Sundance favorite, Frank. Here Fassbender stars as an eccentric band frontman who constantly wears a large papier-mâché head that he refuses to take off. Think Sugar Ray but with music that is intentionally bad. It must be so hard to get drunk at parties in that thing.

That's Michael Fassbender Under The Giant Mascot Head In 'Frank'

This is the opposite of showing your wang on-screen. Never one to repeat himself, Michael Fassbender is doing the opposite of showing his wang on film. In Frank, he spends the entire movie obscuring his face under a giant mascot-like, papier-mâché head as he plays the frontman for an eccentric band. So far, the film has been a hit at Sundance with reviewers noting that the big-eyed head do not limit Fassbender's performance, instead it lends more weight and pushes the focus to his physicality and voice. A rave previously bestowed upon the Cock n' Balls Donut in Sex Drive.


Frank Grillo Is Essentially The Punisher In 'The Purge: Anarchy' Trailer

What if these movies were actually about people doing juice cleanses? As you know, The Purge films hinge on the concept that one night a year, those who choose to do so are allowed to be a total murdering jerk for one night only without legal repercussions or having to worry about who is going to clean all of that up. After the original grossed $90 million on a $3 million budget, it was a safe bet that we'd get The Purge: Anarchy - a different look at people dying horribly at the hands of their friends and neighbors. Now we have a better look at that. This trailer focuses more on Frank Grillo as a grieving dad who uses Purge Night as his opportunity to be The Punisher while protecting the innocent with a machine gun car. As far as machine gun car movies go, this looks like a spooky one.


Pretend Like Frank Underwood Is Speaking Right To You With This Fourth Wall-Breaking Supercut

You'll feel like you're his confidant! Are you lonely? Yeah, I bet you are. You want Kevin Spacey's political antihero Frank Underwood to face you and say a few words so you feel like you have some company? Yeah, of course you do. Well here you go. Digg (Remember Digg?) has put together a supercut of Space's Frank Underwood turning to the camera to speak frankly about whomever he's screwing over at that point in the show. House of Cards uses these moments mostly to break the gravity of the subject matter, as a Kevin Spacey eyeroll lets you know just how far Frank Underwood can remove himself from his actions and promises. Take a look and enjoy *rolls eyes, walks away*


Eat It, Michael Bay: Arnofsky’s ‘Swan’ Reveals Its Special Effects

It took a lot of complicated effects to make this movie look so simple. While Black Swan appears to be a pretty straightforward film with minimal special effects (webbed toes, feathers), the truth is that it take a lot of special effects to make it look so stark. I mean, who really thought it was Natalie Portman doing all that dancing? Besides me, of course. Arnofsky did what mean big-budget directors can't - make the audience unaware of special effects. This demo reel reveals many of the techniques that went into makin Black Swan such an understated yet striking film. Reflections of cameramen were removed from dance studi mirrors, lots of "head replacements" took place, and animated tattoos were placed on Mila Kunis' back while she "kissed" Ms. Portman. Also, Vincent Cassel died 17 days into filming and they had to use a CGI representation of him. Just kidding. I think. (/Film)


See The Trailer For Danny Boyle's Stage 'Frankenstein'

The second scariest use of morphing after that Michael Jackson video. Danny Boyle has a reputation of directing flashy and bombastic screen entertainments that grab the viewer from the beginning and don't let go until he saws off his own arm to escape. And while he's no stranger to the horror genre thanks to his work on the seminal fast-running-zombies movie 28 Days Later, it makes sense that this style would bring him back to the realm of the scary. But people were still surprised to hear that instead of doing another horror movie, he's working on a staged adaptation of the horror classic Frankenstein. Luckily, you'll be able to see this version of Frankenstein on the big screen even if you're nowhere near the stage. UNluckily, if you're in the US, you won't be able to experience one of the most interesting aspects of the production: The first showing of the play, on March 17 (the one that's getting a US release), will have Dr. Frankenstein played by Benedict Cumberbatch and the Monster by Johnny Lee Miller. Then, a week later, the actors will switch roles and do the play again. This trailer suggests this, by showing the Monster and his creator morphing into one another. Subtext! (via The Playlist)


Michael Mann Shares A Grizzled First Look At HBO’s ‘Luck’

Finally, we can feel the thrill of being a jockey without having to suffer the ridicule of being four-feet tall.


Watch Will Ferrell Chuck A Basketball At A Cheerleader's Head In This 'Daddy's Home' Behind-The-Scenes Clip

You can't get mad about something someone does if it's for a movie! It's been a minute or two since we've seen Will Ferrell go apeshit in a sports context in one of his films.

It looks like the crowd is turning on him!
