VIDEO: Watch the New ‘Kick-Ass 2’ Trailer

WARNING: The above trailer contains explicit language and graphic violence.

Jim Carrey joins Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), and their crew of masked vigilantes in Kick-Ass 2, based off of Mark Millar's (Wanted) comic book series of the same name. Despite the three year gap from the release of Kick-Ass, the story picks up right where it left off, turning Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) into a legitimate villain who's so edgy that he has dubbed himself "The Motherf****r." Of course, any film where Moretz is kicking ass is a definite must-see, despite the cheesy, mega-stylized action sequences.

Kick-Ass 2, directed by Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down), hits theaters August 16.

VIDEO: Watch the Trailer for Danny Boyle’s Latest Film ‘Trance’

Director Danny Boyle's follow-up to his Oscar-nominated 127 Hours, Trance, features his real-life partner Rosario Dawson as a hypnotherapist hired by criminals to uncover the location of a priceless painting.

The thriller - which also stars James McAvoy and Vincent Cassel - appears to be more fast-paced than the James Franco drama and perhaps close to the level of trippiness (at one point in the trailer, Cassel speaks to McAvoy despite half his face and brain missing) that most recall from Boyle's cult classic Trainspotting.

The film hits limited theaters on April 5.

‘Black Rock’ Trailer: Girl Power, Horror-Style

Kate Bosworth, Lake Bell, and Katie Aselton star in Black Rock as three childhood friends who set aside their issues for a girls' day out. Given that it's a horror/thriller film, the trio naturally picks a secluded island and end up running into three hunters who end up - not surprisingly - wanting to hunt them down.

Directed by Aselton and written by Mark Duplass - actor/writer who typically produces dramedies - the film perhaps would have been more promising if it didn't seem to give away most of the plot in the trailer. Then again, it would also seem like every other horror movie where a small group of friends put themselves in a dangerous location of their own volition, shocked to discovered that it's not deserted.

Black Rock hits theaters on May 13, 2013.

Psy’s “Gangnam Style” Becomes Most-Watched Video on YouTube

Move over, Justin Bieber - there's a new internet sensation in town.

Korean singer/rapper Psy's popular music video for his song "Gangnam Style" just reached close to 818 million views, surpassing Bieber's for his song "Baby," which previously held the title for the most watched YouTube video (his count is currently around 804 million). The "Gangnam Style" music video (shown above) sees Psy singing his song in a combination of typical music video locations (near the pool, around some dancing, scantily-clad women) to some funny situations (a closing elevator, a bathroom stall).

Since Psy's video became an internet hit, he has performed on Saturday Night Live and with Madonna and MC Hammer.

Microsoft Surface review

Microsoft Surface review

The release of the Microsoft Surface is a much bigger deal that the average consumer might perceive it to be. You see, Surface marks Microsoft's entry into the PC market. That might sound odd, but it's true--Microsoft may be the maker of Windows, but it's always been Microsoft partners who build the PCs. I'm talking about companies like Samsung, Toshiba, Dell, Lenovo, and others. Now, Microsoft is competing directly with its partners, hoping that consumers will flock to its Surface in a major way.

Similar to Apple's approach, Surface is the marriage of first-party software with first-party hardware. Microsoft controls the whole platform. If devices like the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and even Microsoft's own Xbox 360 have shown us anything, it's that when you have the ability to control the whole device as it pertains to software and hardware functionality, you can generally make a better product than you could using third-party ingredients. It's never a guarantee, but we think it puts you in a better spot to shine. That is the hope that Surface brings. Does Surface succeed in carving out its own niche, and filling a need that consumers are willing to pay to remedy? That's what we are here to discuss, so following along with us for our Microsoft Surface RT review.

New Marc Jacobs Ad Shocks, Humors

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Fashion Designers, Videos,

With fashion advertisements constantly pushing the boundries of what's acceptable to show to the public, it comes as no surprise that Marc Jacobs - a brand that has recently been slammed for portraying Dakota Fanning a la Lolita style in a fragrance ad - would come out with a sunglasses ad featuring a man who appears to be masturbating in public.

Seen above, the man - who was discovered to be an employee from the brand's retail store in SoHo - is initially seen from behind, making a movement with his right arm which indicates that he is pleasuring himself in the middle of a park. The ad then cuts to a frontal shot of him, and it is revealed that he is merely cleaning his sunglasses. Before leaving the frame of the shot, he gives the camera a wry smile.
