Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice teased with first trailer

Media outlets have been lapping up any snippet from the upcoming Paul Thomas Anderson-directed adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel Inherent Vice that has surfaced in recent weeks, so it’s nice to finally get a great first trailer. Everything’s neon lights and quirkiness on the surface, but buried in there somewhere looks to be a strange, sobering punch to the gut delivered expertly as only Anderson can. Given the time period, crazy cast of characters, and underlying oddness of it all, it wouldn’t be surprising if comparisons to Boogie Nights are made until the film hits theaters.

Watch the wacky first trailer for Inherent Vice after the jump.

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

Not every director gets their own documentary, so it’s kind of cool to see Richard Linklater (Boyhood, A Scanner Darkly, Dazed and Confused) being focused on in the upcoming 21 Years: Richard Linklater. I wasn’t able to track down a trailer for the film, but that’s the colorful new poster up above.

FUN STUFF: Stylish SPAWN fan-made short film

Spawn: The Recall begs for a new feature film

Every now and then a fan film comes along that plays with the elements of a character or world in just the right way to tickle those tastebuds, and in doing so it often makes viewers wish more from that particular universe existed. Michael Paris’ short film Spawn: The Recall, while not necessarily showing much of the masked demon, does play on atmospheres and some heavy CG effects to build a pretty impressive vision. There have been rumblings of a new Spawn film for a while, but nothing has come of said rumblings, so it’s nice to know the Spawn fans are still out there keeping the character alive.

Watch the 8-minute Spawn: The Recall after the jump.

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

It seems a few trailers for the Wachowskis’ upcoming Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have surfaced, but I haven’t caught all of them. That said, the newest trailer gives us as much plot and spectacle as we really need before the film hits theaters February 6, 2015 (new release date).

That’s the new poster up above, and you can see the latest trailer for Jupiter Ascending after the jump.

Open up the Phase One Avengers Assembled set with me

It’s not very often that I’m able to add a worth-sharing cinematic product to the collection, so when I saw the coveted Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One Avengers Assembled 6-film set(click to buy!) dropped to just over $100 I knew I had to pick it up, snap some pictures, and give you a peek. It really is something special. On top of getting Blu-ray copies of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Incredible Hulk, along with Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D copies of Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers, the set also includes an array of extra files packed with fun little bits and pieces. If you’ve been on the fence about picking up the briefcase, hopefully this will help push you one way or the other.

Watch a super short video and check out over 40 photos from the unboxing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One Avengers Assembled collection.
