Oct 30 2014 10:59am CDT | Source: Deadline

Interstellar just got the cover of Time magazine. Was it because sister company Warner Bros. is a co-partner with Paramount? Maybe, so. Regardless, it's still a really nice piece of marketing for the Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi action/drama which is bowing next Tuesday on 250 locals. It rolls out wide Nov. 7th. The last time the news magazine put a movie on its cover was for Steven Spielberg's ...

Watch the Very Terrence Malick-y ‘The Better Angels’ Trailer

Oct 27 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

We’ve seen plenty of movies about Abraham Lincoln — including, most recently, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln — but none quite like this. The Better Angels takes place long before all of the stuff Lincoln got famous for, focusing instead on his childhood in the Indiana wilderness. Jason Clarke and Brit Marling play the parents of the future U.S. president (played as a kid by Braydon Denney), and Diane Kruger another maternal figure. It looks a bit like Tree of Life if it were ...

‘Magician’ Trailer: Revisit the Life and Work of Orson Welles

Oct 22 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

We’re a couple decades removed from the prominence of the people who kept him in the conversation; other filmmakers have dominated the conversation as dialogue about film has changed. We’ve seen Citizen Kane fall from first to second on Sight and Sound’s once-a-decade list of the ...

Oct 22 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

A few weeks ago, we got word that the 1988 Tom Hanks classic Big was being adapted for the small screen by Fox.

If someone options Splash, we can officially call “TV shows based on ’80s comedies starring Tom Hanks” a new hyper-specific trend. Hit the jump for more on the Bachelor Party TV series.
