Game of Thrones : The Devil Inside trailer

Cersei is in full 'revenge' mode, vowing to pay debts, while Tyrion warns his brother not to let Cersei loose. Danaerys continues her talk of justice, with extended shots revealed in the background. Roose Bolton and his bastard has a lot of planning to do. They are now the enemies of the North. Now how this all ends seems to be Bran's role in the whole story, as suggested in the trailer.

What follows is a series of sequences that intrigues us with its visual camaraderie and nail-biting thick plot. I have to say this series is probably the best right now, in the departments of cinematography, set design, production and visual effects. Seeing some of the beautiful shots, I have to admit, this season is a notch higher than the rest in cinematography and EFX.

Now with just three more weeks to go. Premiere on April 6th.

Kochadaiiyan Latest trailer

Closer home, Rajnikant's (actually Saundarya rajnikant's, but that's not how people recognise movies here) Kochadaiiyan, releases their new extended trailer showcasing more of Rajnikant's heroism, with power-packed dialogs, literally animated action scenes, and a gorgeous animated (again literally) Deepika Padukone.

A.R Rahman's musical score bulges the already mega high excitement of the 'Thalaivaa' fans, but none of his songs comes out. While the animation still suffers from International standards, (looks more like a mediocre game), the technology that Saundarya intents to bring about to India might change a lot of things for future Indian Animation movies. Animation features in India is rare, and often we hear a maximum of one or two releases a year still. Some come and go, even without anyone's attention. 'Kochadaiiyan' is one hope for future filmmakers, and animation lovers, to look forward to some amazing animation extravaganzas. Let thi…

Arrow 3 min extended trailer looks into DeathStroke, Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey

This season of 'Arrow' started with Queen rebuilding the Starling City after the earthquake shakes up the whole place. He befriends some other misfits like him, and we saw the season introducing many a new characters in black, white and grey shades. But all through, the series directors were sure of how the final showdown of this season would come along.

The backstory of the huge character change of Oliver Queen from a playboy millionaire to this vigilante called 'Arrow', happens on the forsaken Island; and who does he have for company? The guy who would become 'DeathStroke'. We have seen how their friendship grows in the last season. In this season we were shown the hardships they faced, and Slade almost dieing, but rescued by a miracle cure with dangerous side-effects. Till now the story sees them as friends. We are yet to arrive at the point where the two gets into a conflict, but its pretty much obvious that it is something related to their common dead fri…

Gravity in the making

The annual Academy Awards, or the Oscars were announced the day before yesterday, and 'Gravity' stole the statues in almost all of the technical departments, whether it was the sound, or the visual effects, or edit. It won Alfonso Cuaron the best director title too.

The sheer curiosity of how he achieved all this that appears on screen still baffles the viewer. Luckily, the producers have come up with clips showing the efforts taken during their endeavor; in departments of visual efx, sound, script and acting. The precision shots and the technology in the background is marvellous, and a treat for any filmmaker or film buff.

Watch this interesting featurette from the movie, here.

Oscars 2014 : Big wins for 'Gravity', 'dallas Buyers Club' and '12 years a Slave'

As the presenters were stalking the stars on the red carpet, early towards the evening, we get to see a huge line up of celebrities, nominated and hosting, arrive. They sashay in their gowns or pose in their tuxedos, and we have our anchors running to them to ask what or rather 'whose' they are wearing. They slowly take their time talking to as many of them as they could and finally when we arrive inside the huge Dolby theatre in L.A, we hush up as the light go dim.

Enters, the host for the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Ellen DeGeneres, and cracks up a lot many cool wits about the celebrities present in there, and many were actually funny. But then the rest of the evening she played waiter to the stars down in the theater serving pizza. Less jokes therefore, and wasn't as eventful as some of the previous years.

Now coming to the event itself, they played the one absolutely undoubtful category, with Jared Leto unanimously taking away the Best Supporting Actor award. Then spri…
