The first trailer for Brad Pitt’s zombie apocalypse movie World War Z has hit the web. Directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), the big budget flick has the Lane family, led by UN fact-finder Gerry (Pitt) running for their lives from the oncoming crush of zombies. It’s a race against time for Gerry in his attempt to stop the zombie pandemic as it spreads across the globe, toppling governments, armies, and humanity in its wake.
Loosely based on the acclaimed book by Max Brooks, the film also stars Mireille Enos (TV’s “The Killing), Matthew Fox and David Morse. “Lost” scribe Damon Lindelof, the man behind this year’s Prometheus, wrote the screenplay along with Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom). If anyone knows how to write an edge-of-your-seat action-packed script, it's those guys. The thrilling trailer definitely gets the heart pumping as zombies flood the world’s major metropolises.

Goose bumps. It takes one heck of a trailer to cause them but oh the first full trailer for director Tom Hooper's big-screen adaptation of Les Miserables does just that. My goose bumps had goose bumps.
While the first trailer used Anne Hathaway's take on "I Dreamed A Dream" to set the dramatic tone of the teaser, this newly released international trailer gives us a taste of a few of the other well-known songs from the award-winning musical including "Castle on a Cloud", "One Day More" and the rousing revolutionary anthem "Do You Hear The People Sing?"
The preview also gives fans a chance to hear some of the film's other stars in full voice. Watch (and listen) as Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Samantha Barks and Hathaway give us a hint of what to expect come December 25. We'd say Hooper's ground-breaking decision to have the actors record their vocals live on-set seems to have paid off, but judge for yourself after the cut.
What Zombieland flirted with, Jonathan Levine's Warm Bodies fully explores and the first trailer for his upcoming movie suggests there are laughs, scares and heart to be had from mashing up zombie movies with rom-coms.
Super-hot British thesp Nicholas Hoult hides his good looks beneath makeup that makes him look, well, dead, as a zombified guy whose slow brain hides a quick mind that hasn't stopped ticking, although his lack of speaking skills means him and and his best pal (Rob Corddry) don't have many heart to hearts.
And speaking of hearts, his starts beating again thanks to the girlfriend (Teresa Palmer) of one of his victims, whom he immediately falls for and wouldn't you know that their budding romance may spell a solution for the lifeless among them. Oh, the healing powers of love!

If you just looked at the cast and crew of Skyfall, you could easily confuse the assembled talent for a prestige costume drama. Director Sam Mendes, actors Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes, and cinematographer Roger Deakins might just as easily be mounting a Shakespeare adaptation.
But Skyfall is, of course, a James Bond film, and not only that, it's the 23rd installment in a blockbuster franchise marking its 50th anniversary with only slightly less fanfare than the Queen's Jubilee. Skyfall is a touch more high-minded than those previous 22 films, but it's also arguably the best crafted movie in Bond history.
Those involved in the 007 empire overwhelmingly credit the higher trajectory for Bond to one man: Daniel Craig.
Oscar-winning director Ang Lee said he worked hard during the four years of shooting on Life of Pi to give the $100 million art house film appeal for general audiences.
The movie based on Yann Martel's imaginative book stars Indian Suraj Sharma, who plays a boy who drifts on the open sea with a Bengal tiger and a hyena after a ship carrying the rest of his family sinks.
"As an art house film, you can explore the philosophical issues," Lee said at a news conference Wednesday. "But for a popular film, we also need to make the audience feel touched, and that was the difficult part."
Lee said initial reaction to the film had been positive, leaving him to conclude that his "risky experiment" would be a success.
A major problem in the filming, Lee said, was coping with animals on a roiling sea - a problem Lee solved by filming in 3D.
The safety of the President of the United States rests in Channing Tatum’s capable hands (and biceps) in White House Down. When a paramilitary group takes over the White House, a Secret Service agent (played by Tatum) is tasked with saving the life of the country’s main man (Jamie Foxx) in the upcoming action flick which co-stars Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Montreal is doubling for Washington, D.C. as the movie is currently filming on a soundstage until the end of the month. You can expect a lot of nail-biting action and explosive scenes from director Roland Emmerich who previously showed us how the world is going to end in 2012, and has destroyed New York City by both weather (The Day After Tomorrow) and monster (Godzilla). And he has previous experience in blowing up the White House- he’s the guy behind Independence Day. If the first photos from the set are any indication, we can expect lots of running and explosions.
Hit the jump to see stars Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, and Maggie Gyllenhaal in action in our photo gallery.
To paraphrase Hobbit star Martin Freeman, everyone knows that dwarves like to drink... and eat...and generally carouse. That's a given. But just what kind of havoc will the company of less-than-genteel Durin's Folk dwarves wreak upon Bilbo Baggins' precious Bag End? You get a very good idea in this newly released behind-the-scenes featurette, An Unexpected Dinner Party (courtesy of Denny's).
From drinking songs to food fights, it's clear that his 13 guests are quite a bit more than Bilbo's prepared to handle. After all, "[he likes] visitors as much as the next Hobbit, but [he does] like to know them before they come...visiting."

We brought you the news back in January that the remaining members of legendary comedy troupe Monty Python were set to reunite for another big screen project, tentatively titled Absolutely Anything.
As if the prospect of a new Python project wasn’t enough to get us excited, it turns out they've got their eye on two of our fave rising Brit stars to team up in the upcoming movie. Gemma Arterton is confirmed to participate in the Terry Jones-directed flick, while Benedict Cumberbatch (who looks to be after the busiest actor in showbiz crown) is in talks to join the comedy.
Set to begin filming in the spring, the film -- co-written by Jones and Gavin Scott -- revolves around a teacher who discovers he has magical powers and can rid himself of troublesome students and even bring the dead back to life. Find out more about the project after the cut!
