The Passion of the Christ

The Passion of the Christ dramatically captures the last 12 hours of Christ’s life on Earth, based on the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Love it or loathe it, believe it or not… the film is an exceptional piece of art and mandatory viewing, especially at this time of year.

The Green Inferno – Trailer

Open Road Films are set to release the long awaited Eli Roth directed cannibal thriller The Green Inferno on September 5th after aquiring it at last years Toronto Film Festival. It’s Roth’s first directing gig since 2007′s disappointing Hostel 2. He co-wrote the film with Guillermo Amoedo as well as producing the film.

The film follows a group of students who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a tribe from extinction. Unfortunately the tribe has other plans. The film stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy and Daryl Sabra. Here’s the first official trailer, which promises some Cannibal craziness but reveals none of it…

Salem – Trailer

“Precious Salem – caught up in a stinking witch panic.” Here’s the two-minute trailer for WGN America’s first scripted series. The producers have apparently taken some flak over their reinterpretation of the actual events of 1692, but what Salem imagines is: The witches were real. And they were in charge… dumb fun.

I-Origins_Poster_Big-eyeI’d like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed this world.” 

I Origins is written and directed by Mike Cahill (Another Earth). Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), a PhD student studying molecular biology with a specialty in eye evolution has an intense, but fleeting, encounter with a mysterious, masked model (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) who escapes into the night. With only a picture of her stunning and iconic eyes, he tracks her down, and they fall in love. Their fundamentally different beliefs about life only serve to intensify their connection, and they vow to spend forever together. Years later, Ian and his lab partner, Karen (Brit Marling), make a stunning discovery with profound existential implications. The film premiered at Sundance 2014 and Fox Searchlight Pictures plans a limited release in July this year.
