Update: Watch the first trailer here.
Considering the insane amount of money Skyfall has raked in overseas already, Paramount have done the smart thing and plan to debut the first trailer for their big summer tentpole World War Z with the US release of the latest James Bond film this weekend. As per usual, Entertainment Tonight have gone and butchered the first footage from this teaser with their quick peek before the official debut.

What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
