The Gushing Cinephile: November 4, 2013

Well, after a brief…let’s call it a hiatus, everything is back to business as usual here at The Cinema Monster. I sincerely hope you all had fun with our Canon segment! It will continue to pop up from time to time and I plan to improve and make it more enjoyable and rewarding in the future. Now, I’ve got some awesome reviews ready to post in the coming days and weeks, plus a few stellar top 10s. But that’s in the future, let’s get into the now. Here’s the latest edition of The Gushing Cinephile!


Here’s the first look at Lance Armstrong in the upcoming biopic of the cyclist directed by Stephen Frears. I have no idea why they’d cast Lance as himself, it just doesn’t make much sense…I mean…what’s that? That’s Ben Foster…really? Holy Hell! It looks exactly like Armstrong. Geez, that’s even better, love Foster.


Christian Bale as Moses, need I say more? This first look is for the upcoming bible epic “Exodus” directed by Ridley Scott.



Tom Hardy is now confirmed to play Elton John! This might be the greatest thing ever! The biopic is early in pre-production, but with Hardy now attached, it has shot to the top of my most anticipated list.


Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult appear to be the front runners for “Like Crazy” director’s Drake Doremus’ next outing “Equals,” a sci-fi love story. I know this isn’t prime news for a lot of you, but I’m a huge of all three filmmakers, especially Kirsten Stewart, if you know what I mean.





The impeccable, unsettling horror flick “We Are What We Are” is set to hit home video on January 7, 2014. Expect my review for the film this week.


Another horror hit will be invading your homes early next year. The critically acclaimed “You’re Next” will hit Blu-ray on January 14, 2014. Check out our review here.



Another clip from the Lars Von Trier’s upcoming sexual addiction epic “Nymphomaniac” was released, check it out below. Oh, and the clip does contain some nudity and sexuality, so, you know, mature audiences only.


Below you’ll find a slew of awesome trailers, ranging from horrifying, funny, epic, and sexy…there’s something for everyone!

Devil’s Due:

Here Comes the Devil:

The Grand Budapest Hotel:

X-Men Days of Future Past:

Open Grave:

Charlie Countryman:

Only Lovers Left Alive:

Okay then, that’ll do it for this week’s edition of The Gushing Cinephile. Hope I could provide you with some exciting news. Have a great week!

The Gushing Cinephile: July 1, 2013

2013-06-30 16.22.21

Yes, that’s Benedict Cumberbatch leading off this week’s edition of The Gushing Cinephile, just for a good laugh. Well, welcome back! I’ll try to keep the dialogue to a minimum, as it is a long weekend here in Canada and I’m assuming those living here are a bit hungover. First off, let’s pretend you all noticed that I did not post this weekend. The reason being is my, let’s call it, trimming of daily posting. It has become apparent that creating quality, meaningful posts each day is wearing me thin. So, taking out weekends, at least for now, allows me time to recuperate and scribe better posts. Not a big deal, thought I’d just let you all know. Let’s get started, shall we?

I’d like to reiterate that The Cinema Monster is finally on Twitter and Facebook! If you can follow @cinema_monster, that would be extremely helpful. I personally added and tweeted at everyone on my blogroll so please follow back :) . You can also like the Facebook page through the link below. Or, if you so choose, can like both accounts on the right side of the website.

All right, first up, a plethora of images, albeit somewhat promotional, of Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah.” The pictures star Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, and Ray Winestone. The film is a dramatic retelling of the Biblical tale of Noah. Check out the pics below.


Okay, next up, the first teaser trailer for Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated “The Counselor.” The Film stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, and other big-name stars, as you’ll figure out from the trailer.

Following that, the first trailer for “Breathe In” starring Guy Pearce and the radiant Felicity Jones. Directed by Drake Doremus, who also stood behind the camera for the 2011 hit “Like Crazy.” However, it does seem like he is taking a much darker, cynical path with this effort. Still, looks fantastic.

Finally, the first clip was released this past week for Lars Von Trier’s next outing, “Nymphomaniac.” The title speaks for itself, if not, the clip will.

That’ll do it for this week’s news wrap-up. If you have any comments or questions, please post them below. Also, don’t forget to follow The Cinema Monster on Facebook and Twitter, it’ll really help me out. Okay all, have a great week!
