Film School Friday Lesson #35 - How To Choose Cinema Snacks

film_school

Last time, Film  School Friday taught loyal readers how to make the most of their summer vacation. The key lesson here was to avoid death, as everyone knows that summer is full of scary sharks and angry rednecks. Personally, I find that the best way to stay alive during these terrifying months is to spend every waking hour in a dark room, watching moving pictures with strangers. In other words, living life to the fullest!

Film School Friday Lesson #34 - How To Make The Most Of Your Summer Vacation

film_school

Last time, Film School Friday taught loyal readers how to make the perfect movie soundtrack. However, if you just ignored my advice and wrote a Justin Bieber jukebox musical, then I am judging you and I am judging you hard. Saying that though, it could be fun to watch an arrogant douchebag constantly embarrass himself on the big screen... Ok, I know you're thinking that now would be a prime time to insult someone like Shia Labeouf, but I'm not going to do it. I'm better than that... (fingers shaking as he restrains the need to point out anything Labeouf has done in the last ten years).

Mad Max: Fury Road - Stunning First Trailer

2015 belongs to the mad...
After years of aborted shoots and production worries, it became easy to denounce Mad Max: Road Fury before any footage was even unveiled, but it turns out we didn't need to worry. The filmmakers finally revealed a three minute trailer at Comic Con 2014 and somehow defied all expectations, making its appearance one of the most talked about events of the festival.

Gaunt Jake Gyllenhaal in Bizarre Teaser for Nightcrawler

A new viral video has been released to promote Jake Gyllenhaal's upcoming crime thriller Nightcrawler, but it is far removed from your typical teaser trailer. The title Nightcrawler is never mentioned, not even in the name of the clip, which is simply called "Hard Worker Seeking Employment" and the Youtube user name is that of Gyllenhaal's character Louis Bloom.

Film School Friday Lesson #33 - How To Make The Perfect Soundtrack

film_school
Last time, Film School Friday taught loyal readers how to get the perfect beach body. Unfortunately, every time I've ventured to the coast since, all I've seen is a sea of fat wobbling around in search of the nearest ice cream stall. Why the unfortunately shaped refuse to wear clothes in the summer time is beyond me. Clearly, not enough people could get their hands on Captain America's Super Soldier Serum and pack on the muscle. Ah well. My bad.
Seeing all that jelly on the beach stressed me out and reminded me that I myself am not the stringiest of beans, so it's time we relaxed a little with today's advice. Grab your earphones, lie back and chill as we read on for today's lesson.

The Big Hero 6 Trailer Is Here! But Where Are The Rest Of The Team?

Superheroes are ridiculously popular right now and Disney have just had their most successful hit in years with Frozen, so it doesn't take a genius to work out that combining the two could be a huge earner at the box office. Lo and behold, Walt Disney Animation Studios have finally released the first full length trailer for Big Hero 6, a Marvel superhero adaptation that looks set to repeat the phenomenal success of Frozen and Wreck-It-Ralph.
