BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
To be fair, Lionsgate deserves credit for making the whole thing a bit meta, and when it's coming to you from the energetic Terry Crews, you feel a little less resentful for being shown a 10-second sizzle reel of explosions that don't actually resemble the trailer that's to come
It looks charming and energetic and well-acted by the pretty impressive cast, and the Fox Searchlight logo at the end seems like the cherry on top-- this is selling itself as exactly the light romantic comedy that the indie studio has perfected over the years. But seriously, where's the twist?
If you've gotten a look at the trailers for Safe you know that Statham is bringing his usual intense action skills, but as a New Yorker I'm especially excited to get a look at a fight scene in which Statham takes on some of the baddies in a subway car
What initially looked like a not-particularly-necessary remake of a not-particularly-classic film has taken on new, tragic significance, now that the upcoming Sparkle remake is officially Whitney Houston's final screen performance.
What's the best way to know a blockbuster film is finally, finally getting ready to open in theaters? When you start seeing it on your television. Aside from the super long-lead TV spots like the ones aired during the Super Bowl, a television ad is the surest sign that a movie is right around the corner
It's not so much a matter of figuring out what's going on here as figuring out what isn't-- in the incredibly short span of this teaser, we see Pattinson shoot a hole thorugh his own hand, have sex with a woman doggy style in a limo, saunter through an alley like he's looking for trouble, and maybe that's him stabbing the dude in the face
I'm a little surprised at how much of the plot this trailer lays out-- Sound of my Voice is all about the steadily encroaching mystery, the sense that you're losing track of what might be true and what might not, but the trailer seems so concerned with promising you a good mystery that it reveals so many of those twists right away. Then again, I might just have the perspective of someone who saw the film at a festival
There's also a new UK trailer, and believe it or not, it's substantially different from the one we saw over here, better explaining the pictograms that inspire Prometheus to head off into space, and giving us more of a sense of the disaster that awaits them. Take a look below
Again, with Prometheus still fresh in my brain it's hard to be equally dazzled by this, especially with the action and tricky camera shots that seem really reminiscent of director Timur Bekmambetov's previous film, the flashy but forgettable Wanted. The concept is undeniably unique, but Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter still somehow looks really familiar
At last! After weeks and months of teases, the full new trailer for Prometheus has come online, following its debut at Wondercon in Anaheim today. And if you thought we had seen all the good stuff from the new Ridley Scott film, just wait until you get a good look at the trailer
Popping up online today is a gorgeous new teaser just over a minute long, containing lots of new footage and a message at the end to see the movie in IMAX. I have no idea if this is just a snippet of the IMAX trailer coming today, especially since this seems so perfect and self-contained as it is, but you've really got to watch it anyway
Though all the marketing for The Avengers worldwide is still sticking to the same general scenes and themes, the new Japanese trailer for the movie, which debuted today at Yahoo! Japan, actually does manage to show off a few new sights. There's lines of dialogue we haven't seen before, some different shots of the big New York fight scene, and an appearance from Pepper Potts
As you probably know by now, Total Recall is a remake of 1990 Paul Verhoeven film, this time starring Colin Farrell as the man who goes into a service that will implant a fake memory, but winds up in a lot more trouble than he expected. Actually, why don't we let the official synopsis clear things up from there
Nonstop explosions sell action movies, especially expensive ones like this, and the poorly punctuated title card "From Hasbro The Company That Brought You Transformers" really tells you everything you need to know about the goals of Battleship. I may be the only person who goes into this movie hoping for something a little more, but dammit, that's what I want, and I wish I could see even a glimpse of that in this trailer
Come next month, just in time for Earth Day, the polar bears will go against the chimpanzees on the big screen, figuratively speaking. While Warner Bros. has the polar bear documentary To the Arctic set to arrive in theaters on April 20, as is Disneynature’s Chimpanzee, will also release that weekend.
