IFC's 50 Greatest Movie Trailers

IFC introduced their list of what they considered to be "The 50 Greatest Trailers of All Time" a couple days ago. It's an unusually accurate list that fits Ridley Scott's terrifying and glorious Alien at number one. Some notable selections include last year's Cloverfield trailer, Pulp Fiction, Shindler's List, and the very recent inclusions of The Watchmen and Where the Wild Things Are.

Debate for yourself, or check out #1 here.

New Elvis Perkins Video: Chains, Chains, Chains

Off the recent release of the group's self-titled debut, Elvis Perkins in Dearland debuted the music video for the album's second single "Chains, Chains, Chains." The Sean Pecknold directed video scores the band's alt-country sensibilities, by sticking them in a cave a setting similar to what the Badlands looks like.

Ticket's to the band's July 8 show at New York City's Joe's Pub are sold out, so it's going to be a while (aside from two New England shows in August) that they'll reach the East Coast. Unfortunate.

New Dirty Projectors Video: Stillness is the Move

The first single off the Dirty Projectors glorious new album Bitte Orca, "Stillness is the Move," recently got music video treatment. Director Matthew Lessner must of thought it was painfully necessary to have the girls perform at least some amount of choreography as they ran with the wolves and llamas on top of a forest mountain. I imagine that's what we all imagined when we heard the song the first time.
