Mad Max: Fury Road – Comic-Con First Look Trailer

Ladies and gentlemen here is the Comic-Con first look trailer for George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. I’m having an extremely hard time trying to formulate words to properly describe what you’ll see hear. I think the only perfect way to encapsulate it in speech is to say it’s absolutely badass. Enjoy!

The Rover: Official Trailer

Ladies and gentlemen, meet my most anticipated film of the upcoming summer, The Rover. Directed by David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) from a story by Joel Edgerton, the film stars Guy Pearce, Scoot McNairy and Robert Pattinson. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to read the script for The Rover and was blown away by it. I wish I could share with you all the emotional core of this post-apocalyptic story that touched my soul, but I’m not one to spoil such a brutal, heartfelt story. So, you’ll just have to check it out and see for yourself when it hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on June 13th or nationwide June 20th. Until then…Enjoy!

10 years following the collapse of society, a man will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him.



DP/30: The Wolf of Wall Street – Editor Thelma Schoonmaker

I know what you’re thinking, “The Wolf of Wall Street had an editor?” And while I admire and share your sarcasm, as I am the writer and editor of an entertainment blog, I’m obliged to inform you that yes, it did have an editor, and that editor, aside from Martin Scorsese, is Thelma Schoonmaker. In this fascinating DP/30 interview with David Poland she takes us behind the scenes of what it was like to cut the monstrous film. Enjoy!


DP/30: Thelma Schoonmaker cut The Wolf of Wall Street:

She is the editing room Ginger Rogers to director Martin Scorsese’s Fred Astaire. The Wolf of Wall Street is her 17th feature with Scorsese in a 47-year working relationship, during which time she has taken home 3 Oscars. She talks to David Poland about cutting Wolf, cutting down Wolf, and the process she and Scorsese have for taking down most of their films from 1st cut to release cut.
