On Saturday, a leaked trailer for the David Fincher-directed remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was posted to YouTube and quickly started bouncing around the Internet. The hyperkinetic minute-and-a-half clip—set to a propulsive, industrial cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” by Trent Reznor and Karen O—was enough to get this Millennium trilogy fan stoked for the film’s release in December. The YouTube video appears to have been shot surreptitiously in a movie theater, and when it was first released viewers figured it had been shot in Europe, where the red-band trailer started screening last week.
If you live in NYC, the chances that you have seen a movie star, or a film getting made are high. We love our movies, and this map is the perfect creation for any New Yorker. Bernie Hou of Alien Loves Predator, has spent the last five months cramming 91 movie references onto one awesome movie map of New York.
Pretty sweet, right? Even better, you can get a copy of it for yourself. The first person to e-mail the 91 movies in the poster, in order, to Hou will get a free copy of the poster (as well three random runner-ups). Just make sure you notice that the flickr version of the poster numbers each reference! Of course, if you don’t feel like doing all that work you can always buy an 18″x24″ print of the map for $16. But where is the fun in that?
Bullying has been a hot button issue for more than a year now. Bullying is as old as us being monkeys and everyone seems to have a different view on it. Whether you don’t care and think it builds character for those being bullied or it’s a behavioral problem with the bullies and our society. Whatever your take, everyone can benefit from watching ”The Bully Project” and getting some real insight into what goes on. Especially since most of us ZP readers are 20 somethings with no kids and are no longer connected to the vicious high school popularity scene. The Bully Project is a documentary thats making some noise at the Tribeca Film Festival and is poised to be a driver behind tackling the issue of bullying.
Jim and Tracy from Today Now! welcome Chris Morgan, the kindergartener who wrote the latest action-packed “Fast And The Furious” sequel. As you can assume the movie was made exactly how this 5 year old envisioned it, cars, explosions, cars going fast, and great dialogue from Vin Diesel, hilarious.
Six degrees of Kevin Bacon anyone? We live in a world trying to understand connections in everything so why not movies? Trying to connect actors to movies is a favorite past time of the seasoned movie buff friends but this new app, “Movies Mobile” by New England Complex Systems Institute takes it a bit further. Using IMDB’s database the network allows users to more deeply explore movie connections. NECS is best known for studying network structure influences for economic conditions, but told wired.com that it could also be done with social groups, disease spread and gene networks. A free version of the app is available for iphones.
I really dont think Im alone when I say that I have a hard time taking Ryan Reynolds seriously. Do I think hes funny, yeah, sure, a super hero, ummm, Im not really too sure. This trailer is pretty bad ass though, so I will give this movie a try, if based on nothing more than that one green lanter with a duck head. That guy just looks like hes going to be an awesome character.
Watching the official movie trailer for the new movie, “The Art of Flight” literally gave me chills the whole entire time. The movie follows Travis Rice, John Jackson, Mark Landvik, Scotty Lago, Jake Blauvelt, Nicolas Muller, Gigi Ruf, DCP and Pat Moore as they plan out new unthinkable adventures to places never seen or rode before. The trailer is packed with amazing scenery, huge gnarley jumps including launching off of the back of a flipping snow mobile mid air (2:45), grinding power lines and racing avalanches, this footage is pretty much straight out of a video game its ridiculous. Not only does the cinematic experience look phenomenal, but the sheer thrill and danger of the snowboarding looks like it will have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through the film. The movie is set to release in September 2011 so when summer is winding down, and we are gearing up to shred the winter of 2012, we will be blessed to be able to watch this gnar gnar shred flick.
X-MEN FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men. In theaters June 3rd. O and P.S. Kevin Bacon is in this movie FUCK YEA, he plays Sebastian Shaw who possesses the ability to absorb kinetic energy and transform it into raw strength, whatever that means.
“Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself” If this oil painting doesn’t make you smile then you can go shove it you Debbie Downer.
Director Michael Rapaport’s Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest documentary premiered at Sundance with rave reviews. How could it not. Its an in depth look at one of the biggest and most influential hip hop groups of all time. It covers all things ATCQ, album by album to Tip vs. Phife, replete with insights from the group, Common, Busta and the Beastie Boys, archival footage, music and then some heart felt moments between the group. I really dig how Rapaport only interviewed and included relevant and real hip hop artists to participate.Here’s the unofficial, out of sync trailer that leaked earlier. It’s all you get for now.
