More Stupidity from the International Trailer for Dumb and Dumber To

Earlier this month, Universal Pictures released the first trailer for the brilliantly titled Dumb and Dumber To and already, the international trailer has arrived online.

The first poster for Universal's upcoming period horror Dracula Untold has officially been released.
In the promo picture, Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) broods over a gothic landscape, brandishing a sword as his cape transforms into a group of bats.

Film School Friday Lesson #30 - End of Term Quiz

The title was probably a give away for those of you who can read, but yes, that's right guys. It's time for... ANOTHER END OF TERM QUIZ!
