Review: Fury photo
Review: Fury
by Nick Valdez

I've been anticipating Fury for quite some time. Writer/Director David Ayer is one of my favorite folks in the industry, and I'm always eager to find out what he's churning out next. From Training Day to The Fast and The Furious, Ayer's writing is always top notch. Though recently he's taken up the directing duties himself (resulting in one of 2012's best films, End of Watch) I was a bit worried after his most recent effort, Sabotage, released to middling reviews earlier this year. 

Looks like Fury drew all of his real focus. Fury debuted its first trailer with a bang, and has never let go. Tragic, hilarious, and full of more acting chops than you can shake a stick at, Fury is f**king fierce.

Get passes for any showing of Men, Women and Children

Still haven't seen Jason Reitmen's Men, Women and Children? That's OK, I haven't either, but now you can at no risk. We've got passes for the film at any Regal Cinema in DC. The movie looks pretty solid so we'd love for you t...

Newest trailer for Foxcatcher catches feelings

Foxcatcher is probably going to win all of the awards. From great early buzz from the festival circuit, to a cast that all seem to be on point (with Steve Carell leading the way with a terribly disturbing turn), to director ...

First trailer for Clint Eastwood's American Sniper

So I'm not usually one for military films, but something about this trailer for Clint Eastwood's (who took over when Steven Spielberg left the project) American Sniper. The trailer is just cut so well, I'm hooked and want to...

First trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice
by Nick Valdez

Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel Inherent Vice might just be the craziest, and best thing to come out this year. Just by looking at this trailer with its unique style, stupidly talented cast (Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Benecio Del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterson, and Martin Short!), and it's great feeling vibe overall. 

There might be something sinister underneath, but this is a great first look. Starring Phoenix as a muttonchopped private eye who gets roped into stopping a kidnapping by his ex, I can't wait to see what else lurks. Inherent Vice releases December 12th.

Review: The Drop photo
Review: The Drop
by Matthew Razak

The Drop is one of those little crime thrillers that comes out and no one really hears about it and you aren't sure why it was made. Possibly the studio thought it could grab some award love or something, but nothing is actually going to come out of it. This is too bad because Tom Hardy gives a performance that you could never see coming from the man.

The Drop sadly isn't up to its star's performance, but that only makes Hardy stand out more. There is nothing more fantastic than watching an actor completely embody a role. There are few things more upsetting than watching the movie surrounding it never match it.

Want new Gone Girl images? Here they are

Are you excited for Gone Girl? You should be. If you're not perhaps these still images will help. Probably not though as the only thing they show off is David Fincher's well known subdued color palette and nothing about the intriguing plot that follows a husband accused of murdering his wife. Still, pictures are pretty to look at when we won't get the actual thing until October 3.
