Netflix may be the best place to watch original programming, but if you’re a movie buff in the United States or the UK, Netflix doesn’t really have a whole lot to offer you. Thanks to Netflix’s increasingly laser-like focus on developing original content, the streaming giant hasn’t been afraid to say goodbye to expensive licensing deals with movie studios expire. As a prime example, Netflix last year opted not to renew its deal with Epix, and in turn lost thousands of films, including blockbuster hits like The Wolf of Wall Street and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The best animated movie of the year is six minutes long.
Over the weekend, Pixar animators Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj shared a new short called Borrowed Time on Vimeo. Although the short features the same impressive animation quality you’ve come to expect from the studio, this isn’t a Pixar feature. Rather, it’s a passion project that the two animators have been working on in their free time for the past five years.
When was the last time a movie made you feel something?
When was the last time you had to wipe away tears, either because you couldn’t cope with what was happening to a character on screen or because you couldn’t stop laughing at the ridiculousness of it all? These are the moments we remember, and in a new video, CineFix has rounded up ten of the most emotional movie moments of all time. You’re sure to recognize at least a few of them.
Michael Bay has a long and storied Hollywood career as both a director and a producer. Over the last two decades, Bay has had a hand in some of the biggest movie blockbusters, including The Rock, Armageddon, and of course, four forgettable Transformers movies.
As anyone familiar with Bay’s resume can attest, films directed by Bay typically tend to feature outlandish explosions, crazy non-stop action, and a jaw-dropping amount of resulting property damage, all thanks to the magic of CGI, of course.
Allied, John Wick 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, and War for the Planet of the Apes are just a few of the interesting movie trailers we have for you this week.
If you love movies and can’t wait to hit cinemas this weekend you’ve come to the right place for a sneak peek at what’s to come. We’ve got a lot of new trailers this week, including new trailers for some of the most anticipated movies of winter, and a few first trailers for films hitting theaters later this year. Bad Santa 2, Fences, Doctor Strange, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are just some of them.
A few weeks ago, it suddenly dawned on me that I’d been using the same wallpaper on my iPhone’s Home Screen and Lock Screen for nearly two years. Personalization of electronic displays has never been all that important to me, but it was about time I made a change. Unfortunately, I didn’t really know where to look.
Thank goodness for Reddit.
It’s Friday already, which means we got a bunch of new trailers to look at. Yes, there’s a Ghost in the Shell sneak peak you should see and a trailer for Passengers. But we’ve got a lot more than that, so let’s get started.
Disney has Star Wars movies coming out every year from now until 2020, including the remaining two episodes in the third trilogy and three anthology films. But the company is also developing Star Wars anthology stories that are supposed to bridge the gaps between regular movies. So what happens come 2021? Expect more Star Wars.
Normally, a headline about former James Bond Pierce Brosnan starring in a thriller about internet-connected fridges would be only found on the Onion. But because Hollywood financiers apparently have more money than sense, the grippingly-named I.T. will be released tomorrow.
Every part of my being wishes this was a joke, but sadly, I checked the date and it’s not April 1st.
There are plenty of horror stories in this week’s movie trailers roundup, but also the first new trailer of Fifty Shades Darker — although that could also be a horror movie, come to think of it. Let’s dig in!
Special effects are the backbone of every major Hollywood blockbuster in recent memory. From Marvel to DC to Star Wars, computer-generated imagery is inescapable, but we’ve been so spoiled by good CGI, that bad CGI often stands out.
