Jupiter Ascending Posters

Five new awesome-looking posters for "Jupiter Ascending" have been released online. Written and directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski ("The Matrix Trilogy", "Cloud Atlas"), the film is a very original-looking space opera but has had some internal issues that determined the filmmakers and studio to delay its release by seven months. Even more alarming is the fact that early word from advanced screenings is that the film is pretty bad. Still, I loved every movie the Wachowskis ever made, and I'll probably enjoy this one as well. No matter how bad the film might be, the posters are gorgeous and perfectly capture the space opera vibe with a creative comic book style. The film stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith and Doona Bae.

"Jupiter Ascending" opens in theaters on February 6, 2015.

Together, they embark on an incredible rollercoaster ride, journeying from Walsh’s sleepy mining town to the mysterious rivers banks of Borneo to the high stakes boardrooms of Wall Street, and culminating in one of the most unexpected and scandalous frauds of our time."

Knock Knock movie teaser trailer and images

Eli Roth has released a new teaser trailer for his latest horror "Knock Knock", and we also have six images from the film. Keanu Reeves stars as a married man who allows two attractive young women, played by Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas, to enter his life, but what starts out as a wild fantasy soon turns into a nightmare, because this is an Eli Roth movie. The teaser is really short, but effective. I look forward to seeing more from this movie. In his review, Fred Topel of Bloody Disgusting said that the film is "A taboo thriller that will put Fifty Shades of Grey to shame." The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, but no official release date has been announced.

Check out the teaser and images after the jump.

The Loft movie trailer and poster

But, there were some issues with this remake since it's been delayed for over two years. Now it will finally be released by Open Road Films after being acquired from Universal.

The story follows five married guys, played by Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Shoenaerts, who conspire to secretly share a penthouse loft in the city where they can carry out hidden affairs and indulge in their deepest fantasies. Their friendship is put to the test when they discover the dead body of an unknown woman in the loft, and they realize one of the group must be involved. Isabel Lucas, Rhona Mitra and Rachael Taylor co-star.

"The Loft" opens in theaters on January 30th.

The Judge (2014) new on DVD and Blu-Ray

Product Description: This minor drama exists only as an excuse for Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. to share a stage. Thank you God! Downey is a big-mouthed big-time lawyer who returns to his little Hoosier hometown to bury his mother -- then steps in to represent his estranged father (Duvall), a respected judge, on trial for murder! These two wildly dissimilar Hollywood vets turn the ''minor drama'' into a Master's class for would-be thesps, and fans have pressed for Oscar nominations. Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D'Onofrio, Leighton Meester and a host of other lessor lights battle for remaining screen time. (VideoTapeWorm.com)

The Voices Movie Trailer

The first trailer for the dark comedy "The Voices" has been released. The film stars Ryan Reynolds as a lovable but disturbed factory worker who often takes advice from his talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, who lead him down a fantastical, murderous path. From the trailer the film looks absolutely insane, but the buzz is also extremely positive, so it seems like director Marjane Satrapi ("Persepolis") pulled off the difficult tone. The cast also includes Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver.

"The Voices" will be available in theaters and VOD on February 6th

Project Almanac Movie Trailer and Poster

It's produced by Michael Bay and it stars relative newcomers Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Amy Landecker, Allen Evangelista and Virginia Gardner.

Fantastic Four (2015) Teaser Trailer, Poster and Images

We finally have the first trailer, poster and images for 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four" reboot. Directed by "Chronicle" writer Josh Trank, the film is a re-imagining of Marvel's comic book series and it stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form and endows them with special abilities that will allow them to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy (Toby Kebbell).

This is just a teaser trailer, so there isn't really that much of the plot in there, but as far as visuals go it offers plenty to look at. I like the dark, ominous atmosphere, and the filmmakers have invoked David Cronenberg influences in the making of this reboot. Also, Yahoo shared a version of the trailer with commentary by Trank and writer Simon Kinberg which you can watch after the jump.

"Fantastic Four" opens in theaters on August 7th.
