We are eight days from the announcement of the 5th recipient of the KT Reader’s Award for FIlm of the Year. Rogue One is still atop the poll, but it’s comfortable lead has turned into a five-film scrap as Deadpool had a big surge this week and moved into third place behind the Star Wars spinoff and La La Land. The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War are tied behind them to round out the top five. Hidden Figures became the 11th different film to receive a vote for Best Picture in this wildly deep year for films, leaving only four nominees without at least one vote. This is going to come down to the wire. Deadpool’s surge completely changed lead margins for Rogue One, and we’ll see if the leader from the beginning, can hold on for one more weak or if last-minute voting will see another film take the prize. This is going to be the last update. Saturday, February 25th will see the announcement of the Community’s pick, and next week will also bring the site’s annual Oscar therapy alternative: The Renaissance Film Awards.

The second full trailer for next month’s Ghost in the Shell is out, and-as someone who has little to no history with the anime series it’s based on-I feel like it’s intriguing and visually stunning. I also feel like this trailer is one of those that makes you feel like I have already seen the entire movie. However, Killing Time has an official policy on Scarlett Johansson movies than involves onesies, so I’ll be there when the film opens on March 31, 2017. It’s policy. What can I do?
Well, halfway into KT’s 5th Annual Poll for Film of the Year and Rogue One’s comfortable early lead has turned into a four-way race for the top spot. Rogue One is still in the lead, but only just, holding off La La Land by a few percentage points, and Captain America: Civil War and Disney’s The Jungle Book aren’t far behind. In all, 10 of the 15 nominees have received Best Picture votes showing what kind of year 2016 was at the movies. As more people see La La Land, will it be able to eclipse the Star Wars spin-off or will one of Disney’s OTHER huge films from last year come racing to the front of the pack?

Well, one week into KT’s 5th Annual Poll for Film of the Year and one thing is clear: a lot of great movies came out last year. Rogue One is in the lead, but behind it is a seven-way tie for second. Will the first Star Wars spin-off hold on and give us a second SW winner in two years, or will it be overtaken by the others. If you haven’t yet, VOTE!

This is just stunning. The teaser and the two trailers for this film have been clinics on how to sell a film to an audience. The only criticism I can lay is I can’t imagine that any other rendition of the original Beauty and the Beast anthem that’s played over this trailer can equal the original, but so much looks so good that I’m going into this expecting something very special. Beauty and the Beast opens March 17, 2017. Continue reading Trailer Time: Beauty and the Beast Trailer #2 (2017) *Final Invitation*
