Hollywood gets Biblical with Darren Aronofsky's upcoming Russell Crowe vehicle Noah, and all I can say is that they seem to have gone overboard with the CGI.
From the looks of the trailer - which sees Crowe sporting a lumberjack beard and an ark that looks more like a wooden shipping container than an actual ship - Aronofsky has basically made a Passion of the Christ version of The Day After Tomorrow. Perhaps this is why Christian and Jewish audiences haven't received the film well at early test screenings - one Christian writer, Brian Godawa, got a hold of the script and went so far as to brand it dissapointing, "manipulative narcissistic nonsense." The director - whose last film Black Swan earned one Oscar and four other Oscar nods - has been unsurprisingly dismissive of the studio's concerns over the test screenings.

It's about time! Nearly a year and a half after the first photos leaked of filming at Buckinghamshire, Disney has finally released the first trailer for their live-action tale of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent, which stars Angelina Jolie as the eponymous villainess fairy.
If you can hear past Elle Fanning's weird accent (is she supposed to sound English?) as the ill-fated Princess Aurora, the film looks promisingly like a fun fairy tale mash-up of The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. The teaser also offers a quick glimpse of Jolie's real life daughter Vivienne's film debut as a younger Princess Aurora. Of course, one look at Jolie's badass horns, piercing green eyes, and I-bet-you-can-cut-someone-with-those cheekbones, and you're likely checking your calendar to see how many days are left until the film hits theaters on May 30 next year. Am I right?

If regular anti-piracy ads featuring real people working behind the camera don't convince you to avoid stealing entertainment, perhaps Anchorman 2's fictional Ron Burgandy (Will Ferrell) will.
In the latest trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel (seen above), Burgandy offers a special report regarding their "evening's entertainment." When he realizes that the announcement is referring to film, he becomes outraged over defending "that shimmering pretender to television's crown."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters December 20.

Remember when Scarlett Johansson was channelling her inner 90's goddess around Glasgow? Well now you can check out the fruits of her fashionable labor in the trailer for Jonathan Glazer's (Sexy Beast) latest film Under the Skin.
In what looks to be a cross between Silence of the Lambs and a David Lynch film, the sci-fi thriller - set to screen at the Venice Film Festival tomorrow - centers on an alien (Johansson) who preys on victims in the Scottish highlands. The movie, which is adapted from Michel Faber's novel of the same name, premiered in the States at last week's Telluride Film Festival.

After having lived most of his life as an actor and spending the last several years building up his production company, HitRecord, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has finally gotten behind the camera for a film in which he also wrote and stars (naturally): Don Jon. The film - which also stars Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, and Julianne Moore - is a romantic comedy about romantic comedies. Scarlett's character, obsessed with romantic comedies and Hollywood's idealization of love, falls into a relationship with Joseph's character whose notion of love is the opposite, fueled by his obsession with porn.
If you can get past the fact that JGL's character looks like he just came from the set of Jersey Shore (which you undoubtedly should, because the movie looks like a fun and entertainining examination about love), you can mark your calendar for the film's theatrical release: October 18.

+ Even though people are still recovering from throwing their money at Star Trek Into Darkness this weekend and Iron Man 3 the two weekends before that, Warner Bros. wanted to remind them that they still ought to spend even more of it on Man of Steel, which comes out next month. Hence, the new trailer.
+ Justin Timberlake has proven to everyone each time he's showed up to the Cannes Film Festival that he's not only one of the most talented musicians, dancers, and actors around today, but that he dresses better than anyone else. No, really.
+ Now that Mandy Patinkin has signed on to star in Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded film, stars like Kate Hudson and Anna Kendrick are taking note and jumping on the bandwagon.
+ Since it feels like years since we last heard about the film adaptation of Ender's Game, the marketing team behind the project decided to throw fans a bone by releasing a new promo poster featuring Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield (who strangely resembles Elijah Wood in it at first glance).

+ While most actors probably would have donned a wig in his place, Bradley Cooper is dedicated to his craft. Here are some photos to prove that the curls he sports in David O. Russell's upcoming frilm American Hustle are the real deal!
+ Just as you were thinking that Tom Hiddleston was all brooded-out after playing Loki for three films, the folks behind Jim Jarmusch's upcoming Only Lovers Left Alive put out two clips of the vampire flick that prove you wrong.
+ Mad Men star is moving on up to the big screen, getting behind the camera to direct Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro, Richard Jenkins, and Christina Hendricks in God's Pocket, which he adapted from Pete Dexter's novel of the same name.
+ With Fast and Furious 6 and the return of his Pitch Black character in Riddick, this year is unofficially the year of Vin Diesel and his sequels. While you're still holding out hope that xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will be finally greenlit, you can check out the trailer for Riddick here.
Continuing in his effort to be The Guy Who Is Perfect at Everything Imaginable, James Franco not only adapted the classic William Faulkner novel As I Lay Dying, but he decided to participate in the project both in front of and behind the camera.
Though usually co-starring with Franco in comedies like Pineapple Express and Your Highness, Danny McBride shows off his dramatic acting chops in the trailer for the film, which was released at the Cannes Film Festival.

The long-awaited trailer for Thor: The Dark World is finally here, offering a look at the main characters in the film, like Malekith (played by Christopher Eccleston.) Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.
Just as Marvels “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Check out the trailer after the break!
WARNING: The above trailer contains explicit language and graphic violence.
Jim Carrey joins Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), and their crew of masked vigilantes in Kick-Ass 2, based off of Mark Millar's (Wanted) comic book series of the same name. Despite the three year gap from the release of Kick-Ass, the story picks up right where it left off, turning Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) into a legitimate villain who's so edgy that he has dubbed himself "The Motherf****r." Of course, any film where Moretz is kicking ass is a definite must-see, despite the cheesy, mega-stylized action sequences.
Kick-Ass 2, directed by Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down), hits theaters August 16.
