The 'Batkid Begins' Trailer Will Make You Shed a Tear or Two (VIDEO)
7/28/2014 2:00:00 PM
The world was captivated last November when 5-year-old leukemia survivor Miles Scott took to the streets of San Francisco as Batkid, fulfilling his dream of becoming Batman through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Now, a documentary about how that event came together is currently in production, and a new trailer has debuted.
"Batkid Begins" reveals Miles's lifelong love of superheroes, and how his request to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Greater Bay Area morphed a simple dream into a cultural phenomenon. Make-A-Wish execs discuss the painstaking detail with which the event was planned, including choreographing actors to play the bad guys, building a custom car seat for Miles in a Batmobile, and drawing tens of thousands of people to transform San Francisco into Gotham, and its citizens into screaming, supportive fans of the pint-sized crime fighter.
We dare you to watch the trailer without breaking out into a huge grin. This is one of those stories that's so heartwarming that it really does, as the trailer explains, restore your faith in the human spirit. And we wouldn't blame you for shedding a tear or two, either.
"Batkid Begins" is currently seeking funding through an Indiegogo campaign. The project, the brainchild of filmmaker Dana Nachman, is nearly halfway to its $100,000 goal with 22 days left.

, and Dave Bautista sat down for the latest episode of Moviefone's Unscripted, and it didn't take long for things to get weird. Clearly more than comfortable with each other, the "
Guardians of the Galaxy
" stars spent plenty of time making themselves -- and the entire room -- laugh, with topics ranging from serious casting calls to ridiculous food-gorging tales.
Food gorging tales? Yup, Pratt hilariously describes his cheat days and Bautista even chimes in to explain Pratt's love for sausage platters -- and that's only half of it. The love between these stars is real, but don't take our word for it, watch for yourself.
Witness more other-worldly antics when "Guardians of the Galaxy" hits theaters Friday, August 1.
Norman Reedus Breaks Down Daryl and Beth's Relationship on 'The Walking Dead'
7/28/2014 12:00:00 PM
Fans of "
The Walking Dead
" no doubt sensed a bit of sexual tension mounting between Daryl and Beth in the latter half of the show's fourth season, where the pair were stranded alone together, and began to to form an intense bond. But is there really a chance for romance for the pair?
, who plays Daryl, shared his thoughts with Cinema Blend during an appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, noting that Beth offered Daryl, who had already suffered plenty throughout the series's run, a bit of hope.
"Beth was kind of like this long dark tunnel. She was kind of like this little flame at the end of it," Reedus told the site. "[Daryl] got closer and closer to that flame and thought maybe he could see something and maybe there would be light and it's getting warmer and warmer... and then someone blew it out."
That latter statement is a reference to the pair's sudden separation at the end of season four, a situation that has yet to be resolved on the show. Before their parting, "The Walking Dead" seemed to be pointing viewers towards a potential Daryl and Beth coupling, though Reedus says that even if that were the case, a beaten down Daryl would probably have been oblivious to the romance, especially in the wake of other losses he'd suffered since the dawn of the zombie apocalypse.
"If Daryl has a thing for Beth or whatever, I always saw that as, if he did, he didn't understand those feelings," the actor said. "He might have felt them, but it wasn't a thing. He was sort of uncomfortable with those feelings, but there might be hope somewhere down the line and then it was taken from him, again. Reunited with his brother, taken. Found his family in the prison, taken. Almost got Sophia, taken. It's like over and over and over again. And that happens to all of us."
That's definitely a philosophical take on the character, though certainly important for 'shippers to keep in mind when getting impatient waiting for a seemingly-inevitable kiss between the twosome. And we think it's definitely in keeping with everything we've seen from Daryl on the show so far, so Reedus seems to understand his role quite well.
Viewers anxious to find out what happens to the gang -- romantic or otherwise -- will hopefully get their questions answered when the series returns for its fifth season on AMC in October.
Get Creeped Out By the Latest Demon-Filled 'Constantine' Trailer (VIDEO)
7/28/2014 11:30:00 AM
The new trailer for "
" is chock full of demons, dark hallways, blood, and bugs -- and that's just scratching the surface of the horrors awaiting audiences of the NBC series
Matt Ryan stars as the titular character, a demon hunter with a major chip on his shoulder. As he says in the clip, "I'm a nasty piece of work," and it's not hard to see why.
Constantine spends most of the trailer battling demons both real and internal, while also trying to protect others from their encroachment. There's a lot going on visually in the clip -- including bleeding eyes and mouths, shattering windows, and black souls swirling through the sky -- so it's a bit difficult to make out just who is good, bad, or somewhere in between. We have a feeling our protagonist is also meant to have a bit of a murky character makeup, too.
that one character in particular has been completely retooled from a previous version of the pilot released to critics earlier this year. Viewers will have to wait until this fall to see for themselves if that change was for the best.
"Constantine" debuts on NBC on October 24.
Things Look Very Grim in the 'Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Trailer (VIDEO)
7/28/2014 11:00:00 AM
The first trailer for "
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
" proves that while Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and his friends may have reclaimed the dwarves' homeland from the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch), their epic journey is still not over yet. If anything, the most difficult leg still remains before them.
The clip shows just what sorts of danger Bilbo and his company are up against, as orcs and other deadly creatures converge to destroy them in the titular battle. There's also a blink-and-you'll-miss-it glimpse of the evil eye of Sauron, who has sent the orcs to do his bidding.
As usual, director Peter Jackson and his special effects team seem to once again have outdone themselves with stunning visuals, as the trailer offers looks at lush landscapes, scores of soldiers, and curious creatures galore.
"One day I'll remember ... everything that happened -- the good, the bad, those who survived, and those that did not," Bilbo says in the trailer.
It seems audiences are in store for plenty of all of those things in the final installment of the "Hobbit" trilogy.
"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" opens on December 17.
