Phantom Banner Poster

Five new clips for the fact-based Cold War-era submarine thriller "Phantom" have been released online. The film looks more like a direct-to-DVD affair, but probably due to its solid cast (Ed Harris, David Duchovny, William Fichtner, Sean Patrick Flanery, Lance Henriksen) it has managed to obtain a theatrical release. Don't go in expecting the next "Das Boot" or "Crimson Tide" and you might have some fun with it. "Phantom" opens March 1st.

Spring Breakers Movie Image

The upcoming dark comedy "Spring Breakers" is on its way to becoming a cult-film. It's clear that the filmmakers are very aware of this fact and continue to aggresively hype the film. In the last few days they have released a new international (UK) red-band trailer, 2 behind-the-scenes featurettes and 2 TV spots. The featurettes are particularly interesting as they display a more honest type of behind-the-scenes look by avoiding cast and crew interviews and simply showing us how director Harmony Korine works with his cast and crew, without additional commentary. "Spring Breakers" stars Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine and James Franco, and will open on March 22, 2013.

Watch the trailer, featurettes and TV spots after the jump.

Vera Farmiga Stars in James Wan's The Conjuring

Today Warner Bros. released the first trailer and poster for James Wan's new haunted house horror "The Conjuring", based on a true story from the 1970s. The basic premise is the same as most other paranormal movies out there. A family (Lili Taylor and Ron Livingston) is confronted with strange phenomenons in their home and so they contact a husband and wife team of psychic investigators (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) to help them find out what is going on. Director James Wan is famous for the first "Saw" and his ability to direct ghost stories has been confirmed by his 2011 surprise hit "Insidious". Wan has a very simple, but very effective way of filming these stories and the result is genuinely creepy, as is the case with this trailer. "The Conjuring" opens on July 19, 2013.

Jay-Z will be handling the music, as well as co-producing. Hannah Minghella of Columbia Pictures has declared the following:
"With the recent Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim, Quvenzhané Wallis is a true star and we believe her portrayal as Annie will make her a true worldwide star.

Wallis has replaced Willow Smith, Will Smith's daughter, in the lead role. The movie, set for release during the holiday season in 2014, tells the story of young girl who runs away from an orphanage run by an evil owner and begins a search for her parents.

Tommy Lee Jones in Emperor

Two new clips and four posters have been released for the World War II drama "Emperor" starring Tommy Lee Jones and Matthew Fox. Directed by Peter Webber ("Girl with a Pearl Earring", "Hannibal Rising"), the film stars Jones as General Douglas MacArthur and looks to be an interesting depiction of post-war Japan. However, the mix of romance and political machinations could turn the movie into a dull melodrama. "Emperor" is scheduled for a limited release on March 8, 2013.

Wesley Snipes in Galloowwalkers

The first trailer and posters for the western horror "Gallowwalkers" is now online.

The actual release date has not been announced, yet. Anyway, the movie looks like a real low point in Snipes' career and will probably end up on VOD/DVD/Blu-Ray.

Argo Wins Oscar for Best Picture

The Oscar winners have been announced in what is probably considered one of the weakest shows in the Academy's history. But who really cares that Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane was more miss than hit as the show's host and that his attempts at humor were somewhat tasteless when not downright dull ? The important thing is that the participating movies were some of the most interesting and relevant of not only 2012, but also recent years.

Life of Pi Wins 4 OscarsThe Academy must have had a very hard time choosing winners, so the awards were pretty much evenly split among each of the major films. "Argo" took home 3 awards for Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay and Editing, but it was "Life of Pi" who scored the most wins with 4 trophies for Best Director (Ang Lee), Cinematography, Original Score and Visual Effects.

"Les Miserables" won 3 Oscars for Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), Sound Mixing and Makeup. "Django Unchained" earned 2 trophies for Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Original Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino) and Spielberg's "Lincoln" also took home 2 awards for Best Leading Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis) and Production Design. Among the movies rewarded with just one award: "Silver Linings Playbook" - Best Leading Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), "Amour" - Best Foreign Film, "Zero Dark Thirty" - Best Sound Editing and "Anna Karenina" - Best Costume Design. "Skyfall" won the expected award for Best Original Song (wonderfully performed live by Adele) and one for Sound Editing through a very rare case of a voting tie with "Zero Dark Thirty". Pixar's Brave also won Best Animated Feature, despite having some stiff competition for the first time in years.

As you can see, most of the major films of the year received due honors from the Academy, minus "Beasts of the Southern Wild", "The Master", "Flight" and "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", all of which received none, despite having several nominations, which in itself is still great honor.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga
Tonight, the best of the best will receive their due honors at the Oscars, but this morning, it was a time of due disgrace as last year's worst cinematic achievements were highlighted by the infamous Golden Raspberry Awards. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" won 7 Razzie awards, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart), Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner) and Worst Director (Bill Condon). The other non-Twilight awards were give to Adam Sandler for Worst Actor ("That's My Boy"), Rihanna for Worst Supporting Actress ("Battleship") and Worst Screenplay ("That's My Boy").

Check out the full list of winners after the jump.

Identity Thief Melissa McCarthy

In a surprising twist at the box-office, the comedy "Identity Thief" starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy climbed back to the top spot during a relatively thin weekend, narrowly surpassing the new action drama "Snitch" starring Dwayne Johnson. Competition was indeed weak, the only other wide release this weekend being the sci-fi thriller "Dark Skies", starring Keri Russell, which only managed a weak 6th place opening. Last week's "Safe Haven" and "A Good Day to Die Hard" also took heavy dives at the box-office, although "Escape from Planet Earth" managed to climb up one spot.

"Oz the Great and Powerful" opens on March 8, in 3D.

Halle Berry in The Call

Watch the trailer after the jump.

Megan FoxMegan Fox and Michael Bay seem to have resolved their past conflicts and will reunite for the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot that Bay is producing. Fox will be playing April O'Neill, the "intrepid reporter and good-natured friend to reptiles". The movie will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman ("Battle Los Angeles") and is conceived as a mix of live-action and CG motion capture. Also, the title will no longer contain the words "teenage" and "mutant", so the movie is simply called "Ninja Turtles". Bay also generated quite an upset last year when it was announced that aliens will be involved in the creation of the turtles. According to IMDb, this is the synopsis:
"Aliens invade Earth and inadvertently spawn a quartet of mutated reptile warriors, the Ninja Turtles, who rise up against them to defend the world."
This is definitely not the Ninja Turtles I remember. The release date has also been changed to May 16, 2014 due to script delays.

Christian Bale Picture Christian Bale is set to star in the true story adventure movie "Everest", which is based on a catastrophic mountain expedition which took place in 1996 and resulted in the death of eight climbers. The movie is directed by Baltasar Kormakur ("Contraband") and Bale will play the lead role of Rob Hall, the leader of a New Zealander group who ran Adventure Consultants. Kormakur has stated in an interview that this will be "a very, very big movie with a medium budget." Indeed the movie has a budget of $20 million, but Kormakur has never been a big budget director and his movies usually look great. Production begins this summer and filming will take place in Iceland.
