Today, Tomorrowland director Brad Bird tweeted out this interesting video, which takes you inside the formation of Plus Ultra — what is Plus Ultra, you ask? It’s the combination of four of the greatest minds in the world, who joined forces to dedicate their lives to “the cultivation of man’s greatest resource: imagination.” The animated video, along with a new viral site, add interesting new layers to the upcoming adventure film.

EDIT

Ready or not, the next installment in the Terminator franchise is coming soon. This quartet of international trailers offers up new footage, and while some of it is a bit repetitive (how many times can you listen to Arnold Schwarzenegger say “I’ll be back”? Four, apparently), there are some interesting action pieces we haven’t seen before. Matt Smith is still conspicuously absent, however.

‘Nightingale’ Trailer: David Oyelowo Loses His Mind in New HBO Film

EDIT

Of last year’s many Oscar snubs, David Oyelowo not receiving a nomination for his commanding leading performance in Selma was a total shock. 2014 was Oyelowo’s breakout year, and Selma cemented his place as an intensely talented star. The actor has a few films hitting theaters this year, and one hitting the small screen, as well: Nightingale, the new HBO film from producer Brad Pitt. And judging by the first trailer, Oyelowo knocks this one out of the park — but are you really surprised?

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Star Mark Ruffalo Answers Sexist Questions for Scarlett Johansson

EDIT
by Britt Hayes 2 days ago
Typically while doing press rounds for any film that’s perceived as male-oriented, actresses are often asked the dumbest, most sexist questions over and over and over again, while their male co-stars get to answer the awesome questions. Women get asked about their diets, outfits and makeup, while men are asked about filming action sequences and their opinion about the film’s headier concepts. But one very clever reporter flipped the script in a recent interview with Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson, and the results are hilarious.

‘Testament of Youth’ Trailer: Jon Snow Cleans Up Nicely, Goes to World War I

EDIT

As Jon Snow on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, Kit Harington is a rugged protagonist who often seems a bit boring in his goodness. While handsome, he’s never particularly been a fan favorite in the book or the show. But you’ll get to see a different side of Harington in the upcoming Testament of Youth, in which he gets a hair cut and a shave to play a man sent off to battle in World War I.

How ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Abruptly Killed Off an Important Character and Enraged Its Fanbase

EDIT

Last night, Grey’s Anatomy fans were heartbroken and shocked to discover that one of their favorite, most enduring characters would be killed off in the newest episode — hours before it even aired. Thanks to a mistake made by Entertainment Weekly, the death of Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek Shepherd (aka “McDreamy”) was well-known before audiences had the chance to watch the episode. That should have taken some of the sting out by allowing them to prepare for the tragic, abrupt death of Shepherd, but instead it only served to exacerbate outrage.

‘Area 51’ Trailer: ‘Paranormal Activity’ Director Returns With His Long-Awaited Follow-Up

EDIT

Like the famed government site itself, Oren Peli’s Area 51 film was something that’s existed for a while now, but has remained shrouded in secrecy and hidden from the public. The director began working on the project in 2011, and the last update we received was sometime in 2013. Since then, the film has been stuck on Paramount’s shelf, and it wasn’t clear if Area 51 would ever see the light of day. Coinciding with today’s abrupt announcement of the film’s upcoming May release date, we finally have an official trailer.

Legendary
If you thought we were done with release date news for the day, you were wrong. Universal has revealed even more information from CinemaCon, including a few date changes for those keeping tabs on some of their major upcoming films. In addition to previously announced dates for the Fifty Shades sequels and Fast and Furious 8, the studio has also revealed dates for Pacific Rim 2, Warcraft and a couple of films from their revamped monsters franchise.

‘Jurassic World’ Clip: Chris Pratt Is on the Run From Indominus Rex

EDIT
by Britt Hayes 3 days ago
The last clip we saw from Jurassic World wasn’t exactly promising, featuring a conversation between Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, whose gender roles felt very outdated. Plus, there were zero dinosaurs or action to be found. But the new clip is entirely action and dino-centric, which should raise your spirits once again.

EDIT

After a brief intermission, M. Night Shyamalan is back. In addition to the new Fox series Wayward Pines, the twist-y filmmaker also has a new movie coming out: The Visit. We first heard about the film last year, but other than the casting of Kathryn Hahn, production has remained fairly quiet. With Shyamalan’s latest hitting theaters in just four months, the first trailer has arrived to reveal just what The Visit is all about.
