We were at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida, last week and saw that the ” Twister ” attraction was still up and running. That’s right: “Twister.” You know, the Jan De Bont film about tornados that was co-written by Michael Crichton and executive produced by Steven Spielberg (it co-starred Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton , who hated each other so much by the end of filming that they couldn’t even record the “Twister” ride pre-show together) that is nearly 20 years old. Apparently somebody remembers it, because not only is the ride still dazzling dozens of guests a day at Universal Studios, but New Line Cinema is about to unleash ” Into the Storm ,” which, judging by the trailer, is a found footage homage to “Twister.” There isn’t a lot of plot detail that you can glean from the trailer, although it seems to focus a father (played by “The Hobbit’s” Richard Armitage ) as he teams up with some storm chasers (including Sarah Wayne Callies from “The Walking Dead”) to save his son from an outbreak of extreme weather conditions. The “found footage” aspect comes from literally whatever camera is around — according to the studio, both professional storm chasers and amateurs will be glimpsed in the film, and the trailer makes it seem like the film will also appropriate things like school security cameras and the like.

War is brutal, it’s violent, and it always end in a lot of bloodshed. That’s the lesson imparted to a new recruit by Brad Pitt in the trailer for ” Fury ,” a World War II drama directed by David Ayer. Pitt plays the leader of a five-man tank crew, which he’s vowed to keep alive.
Moviefone’s Top DVD of the Week “Masters of Sex: Season One” What’s It About? Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan star in this Showtime series about sex researchers Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson.
As we brace for the final season of ” True Blood ,” chances are there’ll be some major heartbreak in store for the folks of Bon Temps. Over the last six seasons, we’ve said goodbye to a number of characters and seen our favorite humans, vampires, shapeshifters and fairies go through some wrenching moments. It was tough, but we’ve narrowed the list down to the nine saddest scenes.
Up until now, the marketing for Fox’s upcoming ” Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ,” a sequel to the surprise 2011 hit “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” has been kept purposefully obscure (although this might be because the complex visual effects were taking too long to finish and not because of some deliberate intent). With the movie opening in a few weeks (July 11 th ), Fox has decided to unleash a trailer that gives you a much better glimpse at what the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” looks like. The movie is set ten years after the first one and follows the efforts of a human survivor of the virus that has wiped out nearly all of humanity (played by ” Zero Dark Thirty ” breakout Jason Clarke ) as he attempts to form a bond with the members of the ape society, led once again by Caesar ( Andy Serkis ). From there, things get complicated and then go to hell. Hey, it’s not called “Planet of the Humans,” right
Medicine has come a very long way, and that’s the focus of Cinemax’s new drama, ” The Knick ,” directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Clive Owen . Set in 1900 New York at the Knickerbocker Hospital, the 10-episode series follows the staff as they try to save lives without the help of antibiotics. “More has been learned about the treatment of the human body in the last five years than was learned in the previous 500,” Owen’s surgeon character notes in a brand-new trailer. The teaser is dark and shadowy, and weird and sinister.
“Are you telling me the fate of 12 billion people are in the hands of a thief, two thugs, a murderer, and maniac?” Glenn Close asks in the new international trailer for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Yup. And it sounds like a fantastic idea. The trailer boasts some new footage, including a lot more of the dry humor of Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper ). There’s great banter between him and Star-Lord ( Chris Pratt ), like when the former scoffs at Star-Lord having a plan and the latter insists he’s at least “got part of a plan.” The spot also goes into a bit more detail about Star-Lord’s background, and gives us glimpses Lee Pace ‘s villain, Ronan, as well as Karen Gillan’s baddie Nebula. “Guardians of the Galaxy” hits American theaters August 1.

Does Brian Williams rapping (thanks to the digital magic of one obsessive Jimmy Fallon staffer) ever get old? No, it does not.

Also on Fallon, Keenen Ivory Wayans shared his personal experience of why it’s a bad idea to scare kids from the projects at summer camp.
