Jeff Bridges is teasing a return of 'The Dude'

This Venom-ESPN commercial is completely idiotic

It's always an accomplishment when marketing teams are able to fit in so much stupid in just around 30 seconds, but this new commercial for Venom and ESPN might just take the proverbial cake. Depicting ESPN personalities&nbs...

Flix for Short: The LEGO Story

Ok, first thing's first: this is basically just a seventeen-minute ad for LEGO products. That's just a fact. That said, it's a very well-made little short film, featuring some pretty wonderful 3D animation. It's very Pixar-esque. It's also...


Trailer: Branded

The trailer for Branded is all kinds of unsettling for me. Other than the fact it contains jovial fatties and Leelee Sobieski's weird face, it takes place in dystopian future in which aliens invisible to the human eye turn ...

New behind the scenes Muppets featurette

Over the past day or so -- since Brett Ratner and Eddie Murphy resigned as producer and host of the 2012 Oscars, respectively -- the world (internet) has seen an explosion of the mostly grass-roots movement to get the Muppets to host the O...


The Darkest Hour motion poster

So there's this thing now called a "motion poster". I hadn't heard of one before, but they're actually pretty cool! It plays like a video and you can start, stop, fast-forward and rewind it with your keyboard, but the way it's embedded make...

Weinstein disses ABC with trailer for Our Idiot Brother
