The Greatest Movie Trailers of 2013

Vanity Fair recently published an essay asking if 2013 is the greatest year for movies since the Gone with the Wind era.

This year’s trailers got us talking and left us wanting more (everything a good trailer should do) — and we’ve surveyed the best of 2013, below. What trailers left a lasting impression on you this year? … Read More

Is ‘Don Jon’ the First Truly Honest Movie About Porn?

From Boogie Nights and Wonderland to About Cherry and Lovelace, there’s no shortage of films about pornography, and it’s not hard to guess why: in examining the (pardon the expression) ins and outs of the industry, either seriously or satirically, filmmakers can fulfill a voyeuristic and prurient interest in the business of sex without engaging in it directly. But in almost every instance, films about porn deal solely with its production rather than its consumption. It’s understandable — the former offers high drama, drugs, and naked people having sex, while the latter is, even under the best circumstances, kind of gross. But two new films make a frank attempt to shed some light on this dark corner of the porn experience, and come up with some insights on not only how we consume it, but how it affects us. (And by “us,” I mostly mean dudes.) … Read More

Exclusive Interview: ’21 Jump Street’ Star Brie Larson Is Poised to Dominate SXSW

You always believe Brie Larson. The 23-year-old actress has done everything from Disney Channel sitcoms to studio blockbusters to micro-budget indies, but no matter what the role, no matter how large or how small, she seems utterly incapable of a false note. Attendees of this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival will have plenty of opportunities to marvel at her gifts; in one of those occasional festival collisions of timing and smart choices, Larson appears in three SXSW movies: she plays supporting roles in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon’s Addiction and James Ponsoldt’s The Spectacular Now (both of which played to positive notices at Sundance) and takes the lead — her first — in Destin Cretton’s subtle and powerful Short Term 12. Oh, and she also co-wrote and co-directed Weighting, which is playing in the shorts competition. … Read More
