Japan's Burnt-Looking, Beady-Eyed Godzilla Officially Coming to American Shores

July 22, 2016


Godzilla Resurgence (aka Shin Godzilla), the Japanese film in which the titular monster looks like charred meat with little googly eyes glued on, is coming to American shores. At Comic-Con last night, Funimation Films reportedly announced that they have acquired all North and South American distribution rights for the movie from Toho. It's said they'll release the film in theaters late this year, so then you can really get a look at how gross this dude is.

Pamela Adlon Gets Her Own 'Louie' with FX's 'Better Things' Trailer

July 21, 2016


Created by Louie's Louie CK and Pamela Adlon, and starring Adlon in the lead, the new FX series Better Things is... pretty much exactly what you'd expect from such a pedigree.

De Niro, Édgar Ramírez Add to Sudden Glut of Boxing Movies with 'Hands of Stone' Trailer

The last year has seen Southpaw and Creed already hit theaters, and we've still got Miles Teller in Bleed for This coming in November, but hey, here's another boxing movie. And like Creed, this one has got that guy who was in that iconic boxing movie and also in that not-at-all iconic boxing movie called Grudge Match.

Hands of Stone tells the story of Panamanian fighter Roberto Durán, who famously bested an undefeated Sugar Ray Leonard. Just as famously, he gave up partway through their rematch by declaring "no más," because he had enough and he hated Taco Bell. Édgar Ramírez stars as Durán and Robert De Niro plays his trainer, Ray Arcel.

Here's the trailer--perfect for anyone who would like to see someone fight Usher. (He plays Sugar Ray Leonard.)

Maybe Faked Moon Landing Mockumentary Will Mock-Wake You Up, Sheeple

July 21, 2016


Operation Avalanche is the film that, for the first time, asks what if the moon landing was faked?, but in a voice that doesn't clearly belong to a crazy person whose face at the end of his YouTube video confirms as much. Matt Johnson directed, co-wrote, and stars in the found-footage mockumentary, which seems to focus on a pair of CIA agents involved in staging the moon landing. In other words, this thing is going to be like the War of the Worlds broadcast for Truthers. Here's the trailer:
