The New Trailer for “The Counselor” Makes Us Want To See Movies Again

22 Aug

 

Ridley Scott has teamed up with the best living American author, Cormac McCarthy, to adapt McCarthy’s first original screenplay, The Counselor, for the big screen.  Starring Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, and Cameron Diaz, The Counselor tells the story of a lawyer (Fassbender) who gets in too deep with drug smugglers.  Suffice it to say, it looks amazing.  The Counselor is out October 25th.

The Jurassic Park Art Show Wholly Dedicated to People.

29 Mar

We’re embarrassed that we just found out about this Jurassic Park-themed art show held in LA well over a year ago. Regardless, the Just People exhibit deserves our latent attention. By showcasing pieces only devoted to the characters of the dino-flick, Curators gave a unique and humorous perspective on the iconic film.  We’re big fans of the Laura Dern pop art.  Full gallery at UPROXX.

The Stephen King Universe Flowchart

28 Mar

ImageWe don’t know anything about Stephen King except that he writes scary stories and lives in Maine.  Apparently, however, his stories are set in the same universe (a la Kevin Smith films).  And luckily for you horror fans, blogger Tessie Girl has taken on the formidable task of mapping it out visually.  Click the image for larger size.

New M83 – “Oblivion” Soundtrack.

27 Mar

Rather than taking the conventional approach and releasing a follow-up to 2011’s hit LP Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, France’s M83 instead took the unique route (would you expect anything else?) and have been recording the soundtrack to Oblivion.  Oblivion stars Tom Cruise as he is caught on a deserted post-apocalyptic Earth where Morgan Freeman wears menacing sunglasses while he sits in the dark.  But Oblivion aside, M83 thus far still delivers.  The new music is still rooted in the group’s idiosyncratic brand of new wave dream pop, but on a much more “epic” and “Hollywood” scale.  The music is less focused on making a “song” than creating a feeling under which scenes unfold.

Here’s the trailer for Oblivion.  Hits theaters April 12th.
