the-hateful-eight-movie-clips

Today we have eight new clips for Quentin Tarantino's new film "The Hateful Eight", which is now in theaters. Reviews have been generous to Tarantino's western, which is not unusual, although the average rating is somewhat smaller than that of his other films. The humor and over-the-top violence are all there and the cast is amazing, so it's a must-see.

The film stars Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Demian Bichir, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Zoë Bell, James Parks and Channing Tatum.

"The Hateful Eight" opens in theaters on December 25th.

box-office-star-wars-force-awakens-daddys-home

It was easy to anticipate that "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" would hold on at the top and that it would probably break more records, but the OverAchiever of the Week Award goes to the comedy "Daddy's Home" which managed to break out into second place with an impressive result, while other new releases struggled within expectations.

in-theaters-concussion-daddys-home-joy-point-break

With "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" already out, there aren't many equally spectacular new releases in December. So, it's time to bring out the Oscar bait flicks. This week in theaters we have awards hopefuls "Joy" starring Jennifer Lawrence and "Concussion" starring Will Smith, both leads nominated for the 2016 Golden Globes. With the awards out of the way, we also have the comedy "Daddy's Home" starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, as well as the action thriller remake "Point Break". More about each movie after the jump.

Synopses, details, critical reception, trailers, clips and more after the jump.

point-break-2015-movie-clips-images

The "Point Break" remake is now in theaters, so here are seven new clips and a huge batch of fifty-seven images from the film.

The remake has been slammed by critics for being an unimaginative update that amplifies the stunts and action sequences but is otherwise devoid of genuine thrills and lacks pretty much everything that made the original a great thriller. It feels more like a remake of "The Fast and the Furious", which in turn was an unofficial "Point Break" remake of sorts. In fact, some critics even admitted that the first installment in the "Fast & Furious" franchise was a more fitting remake than this one.

Directed by Ericson Core, the film stars Edgar Ramirez, Luke Bracey, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo.

Check out the clips and images after the jump.

concussion-2015-movie-clips

Four new clips for the true story drama "Concussion" have been released.

The story of Dr. Bennet Omalu's (Will Smith) battle with the NFL has been received with generally mixed reviews by critics. While Smith offers another solid performance in the lead and the subject is timely and controversial, the execution is nothing we haven't seen before and sometimes it plays it too safe. Still, for the subject alone, it's worth a watch.

Directed by Peter Landesman ("Parkland"), the film also stars Alec Baldwin, Luke Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Arliss Howard, Paul Reiser, David Morse and Albert Brooks.

"Concussion" is now in theaters.

daddys-home-movie-clips-images

The comedy "Daddy's Home" has ben released in theaters and we have a batch of six clips and twelve new images

Even with the consistent comedic chemistry that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg still have, the film has been receiving mostly mixed reviews. As usual, the film lacks the emotional or imaginative resources to expand on the promising premise, leaving the cast to do the best they can with what they're given.

Directed by Sean Anders ("Horrible Bosses 2"), the film also stars Linda Cardellini, Alessandra Ambrosio, Paul Scheer and Thomas Haden Church.

Check out the clips and images after the jump.

joy-2015-movie-clips-and-images

David O. Russell's biopic "Joy" is now in theaters, so here are ten new clips and nine images.

The film is a chronicle of inventor entrepreneur Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence), but the film itself is apparently low on innovation. Critics have been disappointed in the film's execution which only sporadically affords moments of genuine emotion as O'Russell fails to find the right tone. Many have labeled it a misfire, but with two Golden Globe nominations in the bag, it's a still a decent achievement.

The cast also includes Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini and Elisabeth Röhm.

star-wars-force-awakens-box-office-breaks-records

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" fulfilled Disney's prophecy and devastated the box-office with the strength of a thousand Death Stars. Or just a new bigger one. It broke all possible records, and only one may, or may not be left in contention. So it came to be that no other movie was allowed to make money over the weekend, although, somehow, "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip" and "Sisters" managed to get some.
