Minions Universal Studios first look

There is no questioning that Sandra Bullock plays the maternal character very well. In fact, she won an Academy Award for playing a caring mother in The Blind Side, and was nominated for playing a grieving one in Gravity. But she will change it up a bit by playing a villain in the upcoming Despicable Me spinoff/prequel Minions. The film takes place long before those yellow creatures worked for Gru. Throughout many generations, the Minions have been led by the most dangerous of people, from the Tyrannosaurs Rex to Genghis Khan to Napoleon, they crave villainy but they always need a leader – as hinted in the trailer.

So after a long absence in doing nefarious things, three brave Minions will venture out to find that one evil leader. Bullock will voice the villainess Scarlett Overkill, while Jon Hamm will voice her husband Herb Overkill. Hit the jump to see the new images from Minions.

Three D’s Top 30 Movies Of 2013

Top 30 Movies of 2013

Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, stated that “experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.” This quote lingered within my thoughts for the majority of the 2013 movie year because there is a remarkable number of films that confirm Huxley’s statement with shocking clarity. During 2013 the majority of characters in cinema experienced a relentless assault of either irrepressible physical violence or emotional turmoil, resulting in each character clinging to their lives, praying that they won’t become defeated. Characters had to either sink or swim. No film provided for them a middle ground that would grant them an easy way out or provide a buoy for them. Characters had to act, and act fast.

In Gravity, becoming disconnected from her partner in the infinite void of space, Dr. Stone had to gain composure quickly or endure an onslaught of debris and isolation. In The Place Beyond the Pines, a cop had to rely on his survival instincts and the ramifications of his decision reverberated throughout generations. In Blue is the Warmest Color, a confused teenage woman, utterly love-sick, discovers the throes and pangs of first love and is left even more confused after the indelible experience. In Dallas Buyers Club, an AIDs victim with a guaranteed death-sentence uses his situation to give hope to thousands of other AIDs victims. And in The Counselor, a man’s experience overwhelms him and he is soon exposed to the most unsavory circumstances that are beyond his control and the most heinous individuals.

Without further hesitance, the best 2013 had to offer.

Tom Hanks And Sandra Bullock Re-Enact Piano Scene From Big

Gravity and Captain Phillips won the top two spots at the box office this weekend, and now Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks, the lead stars of the respective films, are off traveling the world for their press tour. One of their stops took them to The Jonathan Ross Show in the U.K. Of course when it comes to these kinds of talk shows, one doesn’t just sit on the chair to chat. In fact, there is almost always some sort of funny skit or crowd-pleasing moment that will eventually find its way onto the internet.

And that’s what happened here: 25 years after the release of Big, Hanks would step onto the piano floor once again to play some “Chopsticks,” the same as seen in the film. Not only that, but Bullock jumped in to join the fun.

Check it out after the jump.

Movie Review: Gravity Poster

Gravity
Director: Alfonso Cuarón
Writers: Alfonso Cuarón, Jonás Cuarón
Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 90 Minutes
Release Date: October 4, 2013

Life in space is impossible.

Directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men), Gravity stars Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a medical engineer on her first Space Shuttle mission. She is accompanied by Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), a veteran astronaut on his final space voyage.

While performing maintenance on the Hubble Space Telescope, disaster strikes. The destruction of a Russian Spy satellite in Earth’s orbit has created a debris storm that is rapidly approaching the Space Shuttle Explorer. Mission Control (Ed Harris) urges the astronauts to complete their work and return to the craft, but it’s too late.

A hail of space junk crashes into Explorer, sending Dr. Stone and Kowalsky spiraling, untethered, into the vastness of outer space. With a dwindling supply of oxygen and no means of communication with Earth, the astronauts venture further out into the infinite to make contact with a habitable Chinese satellite.

If you weren’t already convinced by the Venice Film Festival reaction, James Cameron’s thoughts, or any of the previous footage, then here is one more trailer that proves Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity is not to be missed. While we have seen what happens to the doomed space shuttle, this new trailer offers a little character exposition, with a particular focus on Sandra Bullock‘s Dr. Ryan Stone character.

I really can’t help myself watching any of the previous trailers or clips because once is not enough. But with the film clocking in at 91 minutes, I wonder how much intense footage is actually left to enjoy. Regardless, this film will be one huge thrill ride that is filled with Cuaron’s signature long one-shot takes. Hit the jump to see the new trailer.

James Cameron Is “Absolutely Floored” By Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Gravity’; Sandra Bullock On Film’s “Unnatural Setting”

Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity is certainly living up to its hype. After a couple of trailers, a San Diego Comic-Con panel, and its debut at the Venice Film Festival, there is a growing amount of Oscar Buzz circling this film. Those who have seen the film at the festival, which was held late last month, have given the film plenty of praise, but James Cameron has chimed in to give some praise of this own.

Coming from a guy who has directed a couple of space dramas of his own and the top two biggest box office movies of all time, all this praise can only generate more praise and perhaps fuel its potential for Oscars even further. Hit the jump to see what Cameron said about the film and one of its stars, Sandra Bullock, who also talks about the movie.

Two More ‘Gravity’ Trailers WIll Leave Your Head Spinning

Gravity Header

After what we saw at Comic-Con this past weekend, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity promises to be one of the greatest space age thrill rides that comes with a series of one-shot takes. We recently saw a trailer titled “Detatch” that saw one of the character’s (Sandra Bullock) desperately trying to remove a harness before she can be thrust into the edge of space. While the clip did end on a cliffhanger, Warner Brothers has released two more clips that will surely make tensions rise.

Generally, I refrain from posting clips. But the movie looks so good, and there is positive buzz surrounding this film like some crazed whirling dervish, that I couldn’t help but post these clips. So if you want to go into this movie with a fresh pair of eyes, then do not click ahead. But if you want to feel the same fear that you felt when you saw the most recent trailer, then go right on ahead and hit the jump.
