The Revenant Official Trailer: Watch Now!

If you recall, Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio at legendary explorer Hugh Glass, is filmed completely with natural light. That's quite a feat, but if they're going for a realistic look Glass' fight to survive in the unchartered American wilderness, it's an absolutely stunning way to go about it. After he's attacked by a bear (which is depicted in the trailer), Glass is left for dead. Surviving unimabinable grief and betrayal by his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), only […]

It's large and prestigious, featuring Blanchett, Robert Redford (All […]

Creed: A Touching New Movie Poster Released

If you were watching the Season 2 Premiere of Empire last night (and why wouldn't you have been?), then you saw the first television spot for Creed. That was some smart marketing right there. I'd be surprised if we don't see Creed star Michael B Jordan (Fantastic Four) popping up on Empire at some point, to be honest. Even if it's to tie-in with the movie, that would be pretty fabulous. Regardless, there was a new promo and today a […]

The Hive Review: Memento Meets Summer Camp Horror

Would life just be easier if all of humanity was converted into an army of mindless meat puppets, periodically controlled by a sentient, unseen hivemind? Yeah, probably not so much. The Hive, not quite a zombie movie (but closer to that than any other kind of existing horror-type), has an incredibly interesting premise. Unfortunately, the film doesn't quite live up to the promise of its synopsis. The backstory of how this film wound up being distributed is itself interesting and […]
