Our dreams of a live-action Addams Family movie starring Oscar Isaac as Gomez may not come true any time soon, but until then we have the next best thing: A new animated movie featuring Isaac as the voice of the spooky-sexy patriarch of the famously creepy (and kooky!) family. In addition to revealing the first photo from The Addams Family, MGM has added a few more actors to their scary-talented roster, including Charlize Theron as Morticia.
It’s been almost 30 years since the last Mad Max movie (Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome) hit theaters in 1985, and almost ever since then director George Miller has been working on a sequel. That sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in the works for over 25 years and started filming over three years ago. In the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, we take a look at Fury Road. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…
“This is a movie that strains at the leash of the possible, a movie of great visionary wonders.” That lovely sentence concluded Roger Ebert’s 1985 review of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Thirty years later, Mad Max is finally back in a new sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Ebert’s words feel truer than ever. Fury Road is an incredible achievement, one that strains so hard at the leash of the possible that it eventually breaks free and barrels headlong into the realm of insane genius. Forget Max Rockatansky; director George Miller, the guy who co-conceived and shot this gorgeous, glorious lunacy, is the true madman here. And the true hero for having pulled it off.
When David Fincher’s Gone Girl became an overnight critical and box office sensation, you just know that everyone involved in Dark Places did a little dance when no one was looking. When they started production on the film adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name, they were just making a thriller. Now, they’ve made the second movie based on a book by the woman who wrote Gone Girl. And yes, that book gets name-dropped in the first Dark Places trailer. Because why not ride that wave?
This new Mad Max: Fury Road trailer comes to us from Japan and is mostly a condensed version of the previous trailer, with a few new scenes added on. No matter. Even at just over one minutes with Japanese subtitles, it's still knocking our socks off.
When ScreenCrush published its list of the best movie trailers of 2014, the staff consensus on the number one choice was immediate: The teaser for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ Now there’s a full trailer for the film and ... it’s even better than the first one. Is it too late to have two ‘Mad Max’ clips on one list?
It's been a long journey to 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' but with Comic-Con 2014 kicking off this week, we're sure to be seeing a lot from the new installment in the franchise, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. But until then (and until we finally get a trailer), you can check out an official poster for the film, which makes a promise we don't think it intends to keep.
It’s interesting that Universal is promoting ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ a film that is not funny, as a comedy. I suspect it has a lot to do with the human carnage we witness on screen being unbearable to watch, so the only way to desensitize an audience’s eyes to what they're about to witness is to somehow convince the viewer that what their about to see is a comedy – even though there is not one laugh to be had.
