'Monuments Men' Trailer: George Clooney Is Building a (Handsome) Team

Here's a theory we'd like to put out in the universe: George Clooney's handsomeness is made exponentially more handsome when he surrounds himself with other handsome people. That's why he does it so often. It's like a brain trust of handsomeness.

It would seem the glow from Clooney's star turns in super-handsome ensemble flick "Ocean's 11" and its sequels has faded slightly, so he would like to head to the handsomeness bank and make a handsome withdrawal. (OK, sorry, done saying handsome now. Just once more: handsome.) Enter "Monuments Men," stage left. Get More »

New 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Trailer: '60s New York, Folk Music and a Cat

Like the first, this new trailer for the Coen Brothers"Inside Llewyn Davis" introduces us to a scruffy Oscar Isaac as (you guessed it) Llewyn Davis, a wannabe folk singer who basically meanders around '60s New York. He pisses everyone off with his refusal to give up the whole wandering troubadour gig despite many, many personal setbacks and the grimness of the City's music scene in general.

Llewyn's got no money, a pregnant ex-girl (an unrecognizably mousy Carey Mulligan) who can't seem to stand him and an orange tabby cat that likes to ride the subway for some reason, and yet he presses on by auditioning for coffee house gigs and otherwise stomaching guff from the likes of John Goodman.

'Monsters University': Billy Crystal's Grandkids Only Want to Talk to Mike Wazowski

Billy Crystal has hosted nine Academy Awards ceremonies and starred in box office hits like "When Harry Met Sally," "City Slickers" and "Analyze This," but even that resume wasn't enough to earn the 65-year-old respect from his grandchildren.

In a recent interview at the Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, Calif. to promote the upcoming "Monsters University," Crystal told a group of reporters what cool customers his four grandchildren are. They didn't know that their grandpa had any kind of special status until a paparazzo was following the actor and kids around The Grove, an upscale outdoor mall in L.A., taking pictures, prompting the kids to ask what the fuss was about.

Here's a Supercut of Big Dudes Howling in Coen Brothers Movies

Every time Joel and Ethan Coen sit down to work on a new script, they don't start with plot structure or character, they don't start with an outline, and they don't start with a brief overview of the ultimate goal of the main character.

No, they start with the descriptive action line of, "A FAT MAN is screaming about something," and work their way out from there. Or at least, that's what this supercut originally discovered by our brosephs at CinemaBlend would have you believe, and after six minutes of fat dudes screaming, it's a theory that you may find difficult to argue.

Look Closer: The 7 Coolest Movie Cinemagraphs

pulp-fiction-300 Miramax

With fiery explosions, unruly gunfights and frenzied superhero battles becoming essential to most nights out at the movies, there's something to be said about films that can do just the opposite, communicating a wealth of information with just the slightest nuanced motion.

Cinemagraphs, which bridge the gap between static images and video by adding a tiny dose of movement to otherwise inert still shots, are a perfect vehicle for delivering a single serving of cinematic awesomeness. These seven cinemagraphs  capture some of our all-time favorite moments in film in a really cool way.

7. Animated Poster ('Pulp Fiction')


7-PulpFiction
"Pulp Fiction"'s  iconic poster art is such a classic that adding nothing but a slight animation of Uma's burning cigarette brings the it new life. A moment of attention from Mia Wallace is instantly transformed into a never-ending staring contest, and she’s clearly not going to take another puff of her cig until you blink. Get More »

'The Hangover Part 3' Trailer Teases Danger in the Desert

The first teaser trailer for Todd Phillipps' "The Hangover Part III" has finally dropped, just like that roof-top roofie batch that kicked this whole thing into hilarious gear almost four years ago.

Before this, all we had was that hellishly vague synopsis which read, "This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off."

Thanks to the new vid, though, a couple of things are now clear. Get More »

'Monsters University' Clip Brings Out the Squeals


Unlike most movie follow-ups, "Monsters University" takes its main characters James "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) back a phase to show how they became the pair of lovably scary scamps we got to know in 2001's "Monsters, Inc."

As the title suggests, the story takes place at the college where the two first meet (lucky this is an animated world where they can easily age in reverse) and from the looks of this new clip, their initial encounter is just as festive and messy as one might expect. Get More »
