Extended Look At ‘Godzilla’ Will Give You Goosebumps

I am usually not a fan of extended trailers and all that as it usually gives away too much. In the instance of the latest trailer for Godzilla I will be making an exception. So far, the other trailers have shown how well they have done the monster.

Now we are getting the human side of things.

I was very on the fence with this film because it is usually this part that is tragically overlooked and quite frankly is the reason why the last remake didn’t work. With this trailer, it seems they are on the right track and have given us a story we can dive all the way into.

I am still on the fence, but getting there.

Check out the trailer below.

Godzilla starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, and Sally Hawkins hits theaters on May 16, 2014 in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.

"You’re trending bro…." - Poster And Thoroughly Charming Trailer For Jon Favreau’s New Film ‘Chef’

Most people know Jon Favreau as the dude who directed the first two Iron Man movies. What they have missed out on is the fact that when he is in his element, he is easily one of the best directors around.

We have a trailer for his latest film Chef and in it, he is clearly back to that indie feel that he clearly loves doing. Going in I really didn’t know what to expect. After watching it, I am all in. Looks absolutely lovely and I feel that Favreau is going to charm the pants off of us.

Chef opens May 9th and also stars Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt,and Scarlett Johansson.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

Ladies And Gentleman….The Honest Trailer For ‘Game Of Thrones’

The premiere of the next season of one of the most batshit insanely awesome shows on TV is quickly approaching and of course we here at Xavierpop are super excited and eager to check it out. The good folks over at Screen Junkies have done the unthinkable and created one of the most epic chapters in their ongoing and very brilliant Honest Trailers series buy giving the HBO show its due.

So in the spirit of making sure the show is still fresh, two versions of the trailer have been created – one non-spoilery and one with ALL the spoilers.

And now, from fiction’s most notorious serial killer……

WATCH: Video That Gives Us The Ending To ‘How I Met Your Mother’ We Should Have Had

So if you have been on the internet yesterday, you know that the big thing is people’s reactions to the series finale of How I Met Your Mother I have my opinion on the subject which is perfectly summed up by Alan over at Hitfix so I won’t bore with any of that as there has been plenty of that already.

For those who did not like the ending (which for the record I am one of), the internet has created a video that gives us the ending we were supposed to get. It is quite frankly the way it should have ended.

Just saying.

Two Clips Of Andre Benjamin In Jimi Hendrix Biopic ‘All Is By My Side’

Apparently the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side played at TIFF last year. The fact that no one really talked about it doesn’t bode well.

It’s been burdened with controversy since it started production in that this is the Hendrix project that is not sanctioned by the Jimi Hendrix’s estate to use any of the musician‘s original songs. It has even gone so far that the reps for the estate accusing the filmmakers of moving forward with the project without their official permission.

To get around this limitation, the producers have put the film in “Hendrix’s pre-fame era,” with the music being covers of other musicians’ songs Hendrix performed.

It all sounds a little wonky to me however when you check out the two clips that have been recently released of the film, it looks kind of intriguing. Andre 3000 doesn’t suck at all as the iconic musician.

The two clips feature Hendrix and Linda Keith (played by Imogen Poots), and Michael Jeffery (Burn Gorman). Keith was the girlfriend of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards who played a part in Hendrix’s early success. Jeffery would eventually become Hendrix’s manager.

My interest is definitely piqued.

'Frozen' Becomes The Highest Grossing Animated Film Of All Time

For those of you who were hoping that song from Frozen will be going away anytime soon, it ain’t going to happen as it is now official – Frozen is the highest grossing animated film of all time. With it recently opening in Japan, the grand total for the film has been pushed to just over a billion dollars worldwide with the domestic sitting at just under $400 million.

This makes the film the first billion-dollar film for Walt Disney Animation Studios and its first film to receive the Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature. Frozen opened wide domestically on November 27, 2013, posting the #1 all-time Thanksgiving debut ($93.6M five-day, $67.4M three-day) and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ biggest opening ever. It remained in the top 10 films at the domestic box office for 16 consecutive weeks, the longest run by any film since 2002.

And this is all before the Blu-Ray and DVD sales are going to come in.

This is great news as animated films have been going slightly down hill for the last couple of years. Between this and the Lego movie recently kicking ass and taking names, it is great to see things coming back to normal.

Oh look a press release:

It’s also the highest-grossing animated film of all time in Denmark and Venezuela. Since its debut March 14 in Japan, “Frozen” has claimed the #1 spot in its first three weekends and continues to play strongly with an estimated $50.5 million to date.

Brand Spankin New Teaser Trailer And Poster For ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’

The first film in the prequel series Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was very good. Surprisingly so in a lot of people’s opinion. It is for that reason alone that the upcoming follow-up Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is so highly anticipated.

So far what we have seen looks good and that is carried through with this teaser clip that premiered during The Walking Dead season finale.

Not only was I fan of the last movie, I love me the original series of movies with Charlton Heston. So I am ALL the damn way in.

Check out the teaser below as well as a poster that the good folks at Collider have dug up exclusively.

About The Film
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Latest Trailer For Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt’s “Edge of Tomorrow” Is Pretty Damn Awesome

Tom Cruise may be a certifiable whackjob, but man he knows how to make a great movie. The Last Samurai, the Mission Impossible movies and most recently Oblivion, all great movies powered by him.

His latest film, Edge Of Tomorrow seems to be following suit. This time he is getting a big lift from Emily Blunt who seems to be doing a great job alongside Cruise. The premise is very intriguing and I am very much looking forward to this film.

Check out the trailer below.

Three TV Spots For ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ #spiderman

The folks at Sony have started their TV campaign for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I like everything I have seen so far. Sure there is a lot, however if the same people whined last time and the movie was great and not spoiled at all. I have no reason to believe that the same won’t happen with this one.

Check out three TV Spots that were recently. If you saw the last trailer, then there is nothing new you will really see. It’s just nicely repackaged. I dig them.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd.

Trailer For James Brown Biopic ‘Get On Up’

 

There has been a biopic for the Godfather Of Soul in development for awhile that seems to finally be happening. We have a trailer and as daunting a task as it may be to do a film about James Brown’s life, it seems that they have done an apt job of it. 

Chadwick Boseman is your James Brown; Viola Davis is his mother; Octavia Spencer is his aunt; and Tate Taylor, of The Help, is the director.

I don’t hate what I see. I am a big of fan of Boseman. He was great in 42 as Jackie Robinson. And I really enjoyed The Help.  So I am at least willing to give it a shot.

Check out the trailer below.

Ladies And Gentleman…The Honest Trailer For ‘Frozen’

I have been super late on jumping on the Frozen bandwagon. My bad.  I finally saw it over the weekend and yes, it is a great film that definitely reminds me of the old Disney classics that I grew up with.

I am not as much of a fan as some of you, however I did enjoy it. And it makes me very much encouraged to see what Disney comes up with next as they seem to have their Pixar on…finally.

The good folks at Screen Junkies have done their thing and created the Honest Trailer for it. It is a bit of a stretch to find anything wrong with the movie…at first. However, these folks have talent and man, their trailer is bang on.

Like all the way bang on.

I love everything about it and so shall you.

Check it out below.
