The first trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk from two-time Academy Award winning Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain, and Life of Pi director Ang Lee has been released online by Sony Pictures.
The movie, which is based on the book of the same name from author Ben Fountain, follows Billy Lynn who is being celebrated with some fellow soldiers during the halftime show of a football game after a battle in Iraq. It stars newcomer Joe Alwyn as Billy Lynn, as well as Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin.
Check out the trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk along with a synopsis below.
This Fall, the 1986 Little Shop of Horrors get the Blu-ray Book Pack treatment, with a Director’s Cut edition which will include a 20-minute restored alternate ending and 40-page booklet.
Little Shop of Horrors began life as a horror-comedy that was shot in three days by director and B-movie legend Roger Corman and released in 1960. More than two decades it was brought back to life as an off-Broadway stage musical that ran for over 2,200 performances and at the time was the highest-grossing off-Broadway production ever produced. In 1986, movie producer and music mogul David Geffen took Little Shop of Horrors back to the big screen in a $25 million musical extravaganza directed by legendary Muppet performer and filmmaker Frank Oz and starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene (who also starred in the off-Broadway show), Steve Martin, Vincent Gardenia, James Belushi, John Candy, and Bill Murray in an inspired cameo based on Jack Nicholson‘s performance in the 1960 original. It went on to become one of the year’s big hits in theaters and on home video, and at the following year’s Academy Awards the movie earned two nominations for Best Visual Effects and Best Original Song. Unfortunately the film lost in both categories to Aliens and Top Gun, respectively.
Somewhere, the real, true Steve Martin is hiding away, shaking his head at whatever Martin we’ve been seeing over the past few years and his subsequent performances.
Working on films like the Cheaper By The Dozen franchise as well as The Pink Panther, Martin has seemed to become something of a shell of his former self, as have both Jack Black and Owen Wilson. And now they are all together.
The new trailer for the trio’s upcoming film, The Big Year has hit, and it looks absolutely awful.
This DVD box set contains 8 Pink Panther films starring Peter Sellers as bumbling French detective Inspector Jacques Clouseau, as well as the 2006 reboot The Pink Panther with Steve Martin in the lead role. There’s also nine cartoon classics and the Pink Panther encyclopedia Pink Panther, The Ultimate Guide to the Coolest Cat in Town! by Jerry Beck, along with over 60 minutes of never-before-seen footage.
As always, we like to have the results of the big awards ceremonies here for all to see, and tonight was the biggest of them all: the 82nd annual Academy Awards.
This, the king of all awards shows, has faced much criticism the last few years, and their nominations this year did not help bring validity to their cause. Many of the films and actors were very deserving of their nominations, but many others were passed over in lieu of some big box office successes of questionable overall quality. And though they made a valiant effort to increase the excitement of the show with 10 Best Picture nominations, the end result was frustrating to we the film lovers of the world?
In the end, some fantastic films and performances were justly awarded, and as always, there were a few that rubbed the wrong way. Continue on over to the other side to see all of the final results!
