'Nightcrawler' trailer.

Hollywood screenwriter Dan Gilroy finally makes his trip behind the lens to direct his latest script, Nightcrawler. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal as an extremely driven man who gets involved in the world of freelance crime journalism. Gyllenhaal, who lost 60 pounds to play the role, looks to be at his best in this film as the intense and borderline psychotic Lou Bloom as he constantly pushes the moral boundaries in search of the ultimate crime story.
British actor Riz Ahmed, best known for his role as Omar in the Chris Morris dark-comedy, Four Lions, makes his US debut as Lou Bloom’s protege, Rick. Featuring sharp camera work, high speed chases, and gripping scenes of angst, Gilroy’s latest penning really brings to life the seedy Los Angeles’ seedy underworld. It looks dark and gripping, and if Gyllenhaal is on form, then this won’t be a movie that we will want miss.

Potentially the best *and only* taser photo shoot you’ll see this week?

Totally. Photographer Patrick Hall examines the faces people make while being tased with a stun gun, it’s a marvellous watch - especially the extended cut in which you see those who administer the taser.

ENJOY.

Haim feat. A$AP Ferg - “My Song 5” music video.

Filled with some pretty ridiculous cameos, from Vanessa Bayer, Ezra Koenig, Kesha, Grimes, Big Sean to ‘Artemis’ from one of our favourite TV shows, It’s Always Sunny in Philidelphia, it’s actually kinda brilliant. 

WATCH. LISTEN. ENJOY.

First Look at Paul Rudd as Ant-Man.

Early last week, Marvel released their first images of Paul Rudd starring as Scott Lang in Ant-Man. Judging from the images, taken on location in San Francisco, Lang looks to have a far more dishevelled look than fans of the comics will be accustomed to. 
It is believed that Marvel took the decision to go with Scott Lang as Ant-Man rather than Dr. Henry ‘Hank’ Pym, the creator of the Pym Particles which allow Ant-Man to change his size, because Scott Lang teamed up with the Avengers which will give another opportunity for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to continue to grow.
Rumours are flying around about this movie and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel recently announced that they were no longer doing origin stories, but that hasn’t stopped internet gossip that Andy Serkis may be playing Doctor Strange in the future. If that comes to fruition then we would be completely hyped to see the greatest CGI actor of all time take on a really meaty live action role.
BADASS.

THIS awesome tribute to Robin Wiliams.

It’s been a week since the remarkable actor took his own life having battled for so long with drink, drug and depression issues, and what a genuine loss it was. Looking back at Williams’ back catalogue, the man totally gave an amazing performance in every film.

Amidst the cat memes, hipster pisstakes and general trast, the internet came up tops with a host of tribute videos but this one, clocking in at exactly 60 seconds is by far the best. 

BANGARANG.

'Birdman' - trailer.
The latest teaser for the upcoming American comedy-drama, Birdman, dropped recently and it looks pretty damn good. Michael Keaton returns to his comedic roots to star as a washed-up actor - famous for his portrayal of the titular superhero - as he struggled to redeem himself in the eyes of his friends, family and the general public. Particularly interesting since the man played Batman back in the day.
Set to release in October, the trailer blends tragic black comedy with fantasy superhero to form an intriguing glimpse at what is to come. 
Interestingly, the film’s cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, best known for his work on 2013 sci-fi hit Gravity, said that the camerawork and editing will be manipulated to give the impression that the whole film is one continuous long take. The method worked extremely well for the main action set piece in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie Children of Men and we are hyped to see the outcome in Birdman.
