‘Gone Girl’ clip: Nick, meet Amy

- September 24th, 2014

Multiple trailers, soundtrack previews, and haunting posters are just some of the teases Gone Girl fans have had to deal with while they wait for the film to be released.

Now, 20th Century Fox has released a new clip from David Fincher’s latest project to appease fans for the next week until they can venture out and see the entire event unfold before them in theaters.

In the most recent clip, Nick (Ben Affleck) meets Amy (Rosamund Pike) for the first time. Playful flirting, enhanced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ sensual soundtrack floating in the background portray the two strangers as perhaps the ideal couple.

Of course, as Gone Girl fans know, this is just one segment of Nick and Amy’s ricocheted life. As readers know, and as audiences going in blind will have seen from the trailer, the relationship quickly heads south before catastrophe strikes.

Ironically, the first question Nick asks Amy is, “Amy, who are you,” a question that never seems to disappear throughout the book.

Nonetheless, the hype train for Gone Girl has officially left the station. This thirty five second clip and Reznor’s four song album preview will have to do for now.

Gone Girl will hit theaters on October 3.

Gone Girl Soundtrack: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross offer fans an eerie taste of what’s to come

- September 24th, 2014

Gone Girl – out next week – marks the third collaboration between director David Fincher and musicians Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Anyone who is a fan of movie soundtracks, knows that the music for The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was irresistibly creepy. Well now you can get a preview of what’s to come when the 24-track disc is released on Sept. 30. Reznor and Ross posted the first four songs up on their Soundcloud page.

You can pre-order the soundtrack over at nin.com.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Reznor said Fincher painted a very detailed picture he wanted the duo to use as a jumping off point when crafting music for the film. “He said, ‘Think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors,’” says Reznor. “The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel.”

Take a listen below and let us know what you think in the comments.

‘Fast & Furious 7′ photos shared, trailer coming soon

- September 23rd, 2014

The summer may be over, and with it the end of another blockbuster year, but Vin Diesel isn’t ready to say goodbye to the high octane season just yet.

The Fast & Furious franchise star uploaded two new photos of the upcoming seventh installment on Facebook early Tuesday, Screenrant reported.

The first image, a shot of his character Dominic Toretto wrapping up his fists in the same manner a boxer would before a match, came with a message from Diesel promising numerous things for fans.

The first, and the most important tease, was the confirmation of a primary trailer that should be delivered to fans relatively soon.

“Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7…Speechless…yeah, it was that INCREDIBLE,” Diesel wrote as a caption.

He added that watching the video was an, “emotional and bittersweet,” experience watching Walker on screen for his last F&F film.

“We all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud, but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come.”

The second photo, a shot of Walker’s character Bryan “Buster” O’Connor and Toretto standing side by side wearing suits, is just as emotionally raw and powerful.

The suits are interesting, though, and insinuates this specific scene will take place before or after the funeral for Han, who died in the the third Fast & Furious film, Tokyo Drift, and where the seventh film picks up from.

The use of the scene was questioned by fans and critics after Walker’s death, and while no definitive answer was ever provided, it appears the funeral scene will play out as originally intended.

Although there isn’t any acknowledgment of when audiences will be able to see the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 trailer, Universal still has quite a few films they could slip the trailer into.

This author’s guess? Expect to see the trailer play before either Dracula: Untold on October 10 or Gone Girl on October 3.

The seventh installment is being directed by James Wan (Saw, Dead Silence) and is scheduled to be released April 3, 2015.

The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 11 of this year, but was pushed back following the untimely death of star Paul Walker on November 30, 2013.

Liam Neeson says ‘Taken 3′ ‘the end’ of series

- September 23rd, 2014

Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills might have a “particular set of skills,” but it looks like he will only be renewing his license to kill foreign bad guys one final time when Taken 3 hits theatres.

The veteran actor was speaking to USA Today about plot details for the third film in the series that turned him into a late-blooming action hero, but he did let slip that this might be his last outing.

“It’s a rollicking good story,” he said. “But I think this is the end.”

In Taken 3, which will be christened Tak3n, Mills finds himself on the run after he’s framed for murder. When he spoke to my colleague Steve Tilley at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013, Neeson said he had one ground rule for the doing the sequel. “I said, ‘I’ll do it as long as nobody gets f—ing taken.’ They assured me no one was going to get taken, and I said, ‘OK!’”

Describing Taken 3 to USA Today, Neeson said: “I have to go on the run, I’ll put it that way, from the not-so-lawful types and the lawful authorities… Bryan Mills served his country faithfully, but now even they are after him. They must not like me.”

Tak3n opens in theatres Jan. 9, 2015. Neeson’s A Walk Among the Tombstones is out now.

Ryan Reynolds’ ‘Deadpool’ gets 2016 release date

- September 18th, 2014

Looks like Fox is listening to fan demands after all.

The infamous Deadpool move that was, and then seemingly in the blink of an eye was not, has just been slotted to release on February 12, 2016.

Both director Tim Miller and original star Ryan Reynolds are set to reprise their positions, the Hollywood Reporter wrote on Thursday.

As a result of the addition, Fox has moved the Fantastic Four reboot from June 19, 2015 to August 7 in order to accommodate.

The original Deadpool film was supposed to be released years ago, but the movie never made it out of the planning stages. A three minute test footage clip was shot in 2012 to try and persuade Fox executives, but even that wasn’t enough to save the project.

Deadpool, otherwise known as Wade Wilson, is the foul mouthed antagonist turned superhero created by Robert Liefield and published by Marvel Comics. He’s one of the only comic book characters that recognizes he’s trapped within the pages of a comic and constantly breaks the fourth wall to address readers, usually with a sarcastic comment and creatively vulgar insult.
