World War Z And Pain & Gain Reveal First Footage At Paramount Presentation
Here's a quick rundown of the other films highlighted in the reel, including what they showed off that was new, if relevant.
Paranormal Activity 4 (October 19, 2012). Coming this Friday!
Flight (November 2, 2012). You can read our NYFF review of that here.
Jack Reacher (December 21, 2012). What they showed actually seemed like a new trailer, with a glimpse of Werner Herzog's villain and Rosamund Pike's character being kidnapped. Surely it will emerge soon, so in the meantime, check out the official trailer released this summer.
The Guilt Trip (December 25, 2012). Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand hit the road as mother-and-son, hijinks ensue.
Not Fade Away (December 21, 2012). David Chase's musical drama set in the 60s. You can read our NYFF review of it here.
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (January 25, 2013). Finally coming to theaters! And in IMAX!
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (March 29, 2013). I was really hoping for a new trailer, and confirmation of Channing Tatum's rumored, expanded role, but it was the same trailer they were featuring when the film was supposed to come out last summer. Bummer.
Star Trek Into Darkness (May 17, 2013). Just in case they hadn't teased us enough, later in the reel they showed the film's official logo-- the Starfleet emblem with a telltale lens flare-- with Jerry Goldsmith's original theme from Star Trek: The Motion Picture playing. Sneaky sneaky J.J. Abrams.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues (undated 2013). The same teaser that debuted earlier this summer. Still hilarious.
Jack Ryan (December 25, 2013). New footage from the film currently in production, though it went by so fast, and it mostly consisted of Chris Pine as Jack Ryan on a motorcycle, Kevin Costner jumping out of a helicopter, and Kenneth Branagh glowering a few times (he plays the film's villain and is also directing). I'm excited for this one, but the footage gave us very little to go on.
Labor Day (undated 2013). Jason Reitman's new movie, which has yet to go into production but stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. They just showed the film's title and credits on a white screen, with acoustic guitar playing in the background.
Nebraska (undated 2013). Alexander Payne's next movie, also not yet in production but featuring Bruce Dern, Will Forte and Bob Odenkirk. The song playing under these titles was Bruce Springsteen's "Working on a Dream," which is weird given that Springsteen has an entire album called Nebraska. Why not use that?
Transformers 4 (June 27, 2014). This is happening! And they had a logo that's the familiar Transformers mask logo with a 4 taking up half of it. Who knows if they'll use it officially though.
The Spongebob Motion Picture (undated 2014). This is happening!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (undated 2014). And this is happening too, despite a recent delay.
And that's that! It's nice to see Paramount back again after completely sitting this summer out, and the combination of promising director-driven projects like Noah and super-exciting sequels (Anchorman 2 and Star Trek Into Darkness) seems to suggest a good couple of years ahead.
