New 'Interstellar' Trailer Only For People In The Know

interstellar-trailer-3.jpg

If you go to the official Interstellar site, you can enter in an access code to watch the newest, most space-filled Interstellar trailer yet. And because I'm more special than you but still want you to be my friend, I'll just tell you what that access code is. And, uh, here it is: 07201969. It also happens to be the date that man first landed on the moon, but that's probably just a silly coincidence. If you want to go into the movie knowing as little as possible, just ignore the trailer. If you're like me and have no self control, just watch it and take in the splendor. I'm pretty sure at one point my eyes glistened and a single tear rolled down my cheek containing all the hope and wonder of my childhood.

UPDATE: Here's a direct link to the video file in case you're into that kind of thing.

First Official 'The Hateful Eight' Poster Confirms It's Happening

hateful-8-poster.jpg

The first official poster for Quentin Tarantino's eighth film (eight, get it?) The Hateful Eight debuted in Empire Magazine, confirming that it will actually be a real-life movie and released in 2015. The presumed synopsis as parroted by everybody so far:

The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

And although there are only six horses here, there are two people on the carriage so, ya know, we're still good on the 'eight' motif. I'm sure the marketing team is also hoping Tarantino can finish the movie by August 8, and I bet there were some heated debates about whether or not to write it out as 'The H8teful Eight' or some variation of that.

'Potterhood': The 'Harry Potter' and 'Boyhood' Trailer Mashup

After Nelson Carvajal made his Boyhood and Planet of the Apes mashup trailer Apehood, film writer David Ehrlich tweeted that the idea "would have been much more effective with Harry Potter." Well the folks at Slate took the idea and cut together this Potterhood trailer. Although if Potterhood were an actual film, it would be about 19.5 hours long and still probably manage to hold my attention longer than Boyhood. Get it? Because Boyhood was boring. The movie spanned twelve years but you felt like you were watching it for thirteen.

Leaked 'Deadpool' Test Footage is Real and Glorious

deadpool-test-footage.jpg

This is the official leaked Deadpool movie test footage. And while it sucks that somebody at Marvel is probably getting fired for this, their loss is your gain, because the clip looks amazing. It's beautifully rendered, filled with just the right amount of violence and, most importantly, it captures the essence and humor of Deadpool. And in case there's any doubt to its legitimacy, I'm pretty sure that's Ryan Reynolds' voice breaking the fourth wall. The only real question here is how is this not a movie yet? Considering the popularity of the character and how great the test footage looks, you'd think somebody would've already started throwing suitcases of cash at the project. You'd also probably think that I'm ruggedly handsome and always walk around with a hot babe on my arm but you'd be wrong. It's two babes.

'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Official Teaser Trailer

Here's the teaser trailer for The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, the conclusion of the trilogy for the prequel to the other trilogy. It's got Smaug, orcs, and Pippin's song from The Return of the King. The Hobbit never should have been a trilogy in the first place, but since it is, it seems fitting to use Pippin's song to conclude Peter Jackson's film making relationship with Middle Earth. There's also plenty of Legolas in case anybody was worried our favorite Elf archer had retired from a life of killing orcs.

Official 'Horns' Trailer Shows Daniel Radcliffe With Horns

Here's the official trailer for Daniel Radcliffe's new movie Horns, based on the best-selling book by Joe Hill. As much as I can figure, the plot of the movie revolves around Radcliffe getting blamed for the murder of his girlfriend and then waking up to find he's grown a pair of horns. And then a bunch of other stuff happens and I no longer have any idea what's going on. I haven't read the book, but I'm assuming "allegorical" is probably the word that will be best used to describe the film. And maybe "petunia." But that's mostly just because I enjoy flowers.

New 'The Maze Runner' Trailer: Don't You Dare Walk This Maze

maze-runner-trailer.jpg

Here's the newest trailer for that movie based on a popular young adult series that's not The Hunger Games but is probably sort of also like The Hunger Games. And it's also the first in a trilogy because of course it is. In case the first trailer for The Maze Runner didn't make it clear, this maze that they're attempting to run is dangerous. And mysterious. And the only way they're going to make it out is with the new guy who's somehow different than the rest of them. But there's also monsters or something in this maze so they should probably watch out for that.

The Simpsons/Family Guy Crossover is Real and Here's a 5-Minute Preview

simpsons-famliy-guy-crossover.jpg

The trailer for the upcoming Simpsons/Family Guy crossover debuted at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend and here's the full 5-minute preview. The hour-long special is set to air on September 28th and will be The Simpsons' first official crossover since their only other one back in 1995 with The Critic. Despite the pandering nature of the whole endeavor and contrary to what a lot of people might have speculated, the thing actually looks extremely watchable. The humor is definitely more Family Guy oriented though, meaning meta jokes, semi-offensive humor, and super long drawn-out fight sequences that push beyond the limits of absurdity. And a rape joke. There's also a rape joke in there.

Full 5-minute clip after the jump.
