New Extended Trailer For Disney’s Upcoming ‘Pete’s Dragon’

Disney is continuing to replenish its classic animated line-up with a new live-action adaptation of the 1977 feature Pete’s Dragon. Co-written and directed by David Lowery (Pioneer, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), the new film is led by Oakes Fegley (This Is Where I Leave You, The Truth About Lies) as the young orphan Pete, whose best friend just so happens to be a big green dragon named Elliot. Leading the rest of the cast is The Help and Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, who is joined on screen by Karl Urban (The Bourne Supremacy, Star Trek), Wes Bentley (American Beauty, Interstellar), Oona Laurence (Southpaw, Lamb), and Oscar-winner Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All The President’s Men). Screenwriter Toby Halbrooks, who has worked on a number of projects with director Lowery, co-wrote the film, which doesn’t appear to feature the all-too-memorable Gogans or the crazed and crooked Dr. Terminus. The trailer looks like it’s going to turn into a really heavy, emotional movie, like Disney tends to do these days, but I’d say it will probably still be worth the watch. The new movie opens in theaters this August 12th. Watch the trailer here on MADE!

New Big Screen Adaptation of ‘Goosebumps’ With Jack Black Opening In Theaters Today

Those of us who grew up in the 90s (which is pretty much all of us) remember watching the popular television adaptation of author R.L. Stine‘s short story collection, titled Goosebumps. Now, 20 years later, a feature-length film adaptation of the popular series is opening in theaters across the country today. Starring Jack Black (School of Rock, Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny) as R.L. Stine, himself, the film, simply titled Goosebumps, follows a young urban teenager who moves to a small town and meets the real R.L. Stine. As it turns out, the monsters in Stine’s stories are real, and he has spent his life protecting his readers from them by entrapping them in his book, hence the reason behind his madness. All that is thrown into havoc, however, when our young city dweller shows up and unintentionally releases the monsters and they begin to terrorize the town, leaving it up to Stine and his new teenage acquaintances to stop them. The film is directed by Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Gulliver’s Travels) and penned by screenwriters Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After, Jack the Giant Slayer), and writing partners Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, Big Eyes). Appearing in the supporting cast are actors Dylan Minnette (Let Me In, Prisoners), Odeya Rush (The Odd Life of Timothy Green, The Giver), Ryan Lee (Super 8, This is 40), and Oscar-nominee Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). The trailer is available here on MADE. Also opening in theaters today are the films Truth, All Things Must Pass, and Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies. Enjoy the weekend!

New Biographical Drama ‘Truth’ Opening In Theaters This Friday

The new biographical drama Truth, which details the 60 Minutes episode in 2004 that investigated President George W. Bush’s military service, and the subsequent criticism that led to news anchor Dan Rather and his producer Mary Mapes loosing their jobs and effectively ending their careers, is opening in theaters this Friday, October 16th. Screenwriter James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) will be making his directorial debut with Truth, which he also adapted from Mary Mapes book. Starring in the two title roles are Oscar winners Robert Redford (All The President’s Men, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and Cate Blanchett (The Aviator, Blue Jasmine), with Topher Grace (In Good Company, Interstellar), Dennis Quaid (Vantage Point, The Day After Tomorrow), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, Get Him To The Greek), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, I Robot), and Dermont Mulroney (About Schmidt, The Grey). The trailer is available here on MADE. Given the talent backing up this screenplay I would expect that this will definitely be worth seeing. Enjoy!

Brazil’s 2014 World Cup

Not everything is what it is made out to be, and that is what this video specifically showcases. This very short, yet powerful video sums up very well what has been happening in Brazil leading up to the World Cup. Some of this footage you most likely never of seen before, and some of it might be quite shocking to those who haven’t read into this topic. This is just the tip of the iceberg, and millions of people are quite upset about how the government has spent nearly $30 billion preparing for the World Cup, yet Brazil has many other needs and will have nothing to show for it. If you want to learn more on this subject, John Oliver explains it rather well in a more light hearted note. Stay tuned people, the World Cup will be a police/military infested event.

Nikola Pekovic – The Truth Behind the Tattoo

A few weeks back, when watching the Wolves vs Blazers game, the announcers made some remarks to the beast Pekovic’s tattoo that I had never heard before. These remarks had me doing some digging. I have always speculated about what the meaning of this particular tattoo was, and now it is clear.

The Answer: After extensive research (5mn or so), I found some sources on this. The Warrior happens to be Pekovic, and the skulls are of his enemies that he has absolutely slain in battle. The announcers of the game proclaimed, “It looks like Lopez will be the next skull added with all the others, because Lopez is getting dominated”. This has added a whole new level of respect for Pekovic and his tattoos, the guy is an absolute giant on the court, leaving him a force to be reckoned with. Pek ended up with 30pts and 9 rebounds; so watch out Lopez, you might just be the next skull.

Why Marijuana is Illegal

While some may think this is redundant, this informative four minute rant from Joe Rogan sums up this topic rather well. Many people throughout the world use it, or simply do not know what the hell its actual benefits are; it gets explained perfectly here. Instead of watching one of those god-awful lengthy documentaries and videos that often bore people, this is all you need. Enjoy.
