Apes With Guns: New 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Screenshots

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a success critically and commercially, but something weird happened to it when the excitement faded:  It just kind of dropped off the map.  Even with a sequel on the way, people don't seem to be talking about it that much.  Some movies have cultural viability, and some don't and I'm a bit worried that this whole franchise will wind up being a firm example of the latter. Here's a few new screenshots from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes that'll hopefully remedy that, though.

First Trailer For 'The Giver' Shows Us A World Without Pain

They've released the first trailer for the upcoming adaptation of the Louis Lowry classic children's novel The Giver, and results are...interesting to say the least.  Here's one aspect of the whole thing that I never actually anticipated: Hunger Games.  Or, rather that same visual style and atmosphere.  This may prove I'm an idiot, but I never made the connection between the recent slew of teen dystopian novel adaptations and the fact that this finally made its way out of development hell, but it's now a pretty obvious one.

'Godzilla' Director Talks How To Keep The Monster Scary

In my last look at the fantastic trailer for the upcoming Godzilla reboot, I brought up the point that a big part of what gives the Toho monster movies their charm is their cheesiness, so it was worth wondering whether or not a serious adaptation would even work.  In a recent interview with SXSW, director Gareth Edwards commented on those issues and more, including Godzilla's design and what the Godzilla movies were really about at first.

Critical Hit's Month-Azaki Part 3: Princess Mononoke'

Everyone has their favorite Miyazaki film. Mine just happens to be Princess Mononoke, the one with the most explicitly japanese aesthetic, but the most western-friendly storyline.  Art can be strange sometimes.  Here's one more dose of irony: Princess Mononoke was a big inspiration for the art of Snow White and the Huntsman, a movie I completely despised.  Anyways, here's the latest episode of Critical Hit, talking about the action fantasy.  Next up will be our podcast about The Wind Rises. Enjoy!
