BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Based on the comments we've been getting from you guys every time we post about 21 Jump Street, the word still hasn't gotten out that this movie adaptation of the 80s TV is pretty much the opposite of what you'd expect from a terrible 80s remake
If you're still hoping to maintain the mystery, you're still good to go here-- this follows along the lines of the teaser in just showing images along with music and no dialogue. What's new is a lot of the scenes we see, including a brief glimpse at Noomi Rapace in a space suit getting blasted with debris, Idris Elba looking mighty surprised
Sexy Baby focuses on Nakita, a former porn star, and the effect she has on Laura, a plastic surgery patient, and Winnifred, a middle school student, amidst the rise of a new sexual landscape via the cyber age. The piece explores what it’s like to be a woman, girl, teenager, parent and more in a world overrun with sexting and hardcore porn available in an instant on the web.
I've seen Cabin in the Woods-- though I'm not allowed to talk much about it-- and I actually don't think this trailer gives away too much. The fact that there's something unusual happening in this horror movie setup is revealed from the very beginning, and the really fun twists of the story-- along with the best jokes-- aren't spoiled here at all
With the black-and-white color and the rounded, odd creature design, this looks more like the Tim Burton we knew from Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas than anything we've seen in, well, ages. And while there's no sense of what happens when the kid brings Sparky back to life
With his Oscar nomination, 21 Jump Street coming in a few weeks and this movie opening July 27, Jonah Hill is having a hell of a year. And he's in good company too-- as sick as you may be of some of the nonsense Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn has made, they're more than balanced out by the likes of British import Ayoade (of The IT Crowd and director of Submarine) and the talent behind the screen
The trailer segues into kind of a "getting the band back together" montage, culminating with sassy Tony Stark, of course, who apparently kicks off his participation in the Avengers by beating the hell out of Thor. It's not just Stark who gets the good lines though-- there's a nice presence of Loki taunting the team
With John Carter getting ready to hit theaters next weekend, there's not much time left for Disney to convince moviegoers to jump for their giant blockbuster, an enormous, effects-filled movies coming after a two-month drought in pretty much any movies you'd call a "must-see."
Even from the very first music cue, from Semisonic's "Closing Time," I'm sold-- and the fact that I graduated high school three years after these characters did probably has a lot to do with the fact that I'm excited about this movie. Though the conflicts in this movie seem ridiculous-- does anyone actually believe Jason Biggs's Jim is going to cheat on Alyson Hannigan after all they've been through?
Even though mash-ups have been done to death, there are still the rare few that burst through the thick layer of crap and actually impress. Today it's another Batman themed edit but instead of the traditional mash-up, this video, with voice-over from The Prestige, acts like a brand new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises as well as Christopher Nolan's trilogy as a whole.
This summer Jeremy Renner is tackling the difficult task of taking over the Bourne franchise from Matt Damon, playing a completely different agent inducted into the secretive world that Bourne first introduced us to. Today we're finally getting our first look at Renner as the new super-spy
You can't really miss Rhys Ifans as the LIzard even in a quick glance at the trailer, but to really get the full effect of this character and to get sense of what he looks like, you've got to dig deeper. Looking at some frame-by-frame screenshots from the film, here's what we noticed and will be keeping an eye on when the movie comes to theaters July 3
It feels like evidence of an enthusiastic, overjoyed heart behind The Amazing Spider-Man, a group of people handed an opportunity to reboot a franchise maybe a bit too early, but giving it all they have anyway. This Peter Parker might be mouthy and sarcastic, but he doesn't seem cynical-- and that, more than impressive effects or anything else, might be what I'm looking forward to about The Amazing Spider-Man
It's been almost a decade since everyone's favorite bunch of toddlers were crawling around the animation studios at Nickelodeon. And longer still since we saw the Rugrats on the big-screen. Well, it seems like the long wait is finally over because they just released a red-band trailer for the Rugrats movie. Red-band trailer? I guess they have really grown up since their last adventure.
It starts out pretty much identical to the American version, but soon veers off into some new footage. There's some interaction between Tony Stark and Loki that's new...it looks like they're speaking to each other, anyway, but since I don't speak Russian it could just be a confusing edit. We also see a conversation between Black Widow and Bruce Banner/The Hulk, and in general just see more of the two of them than we do in the original version.
How do you say "I sunk your battleship" in Japanese? It probably won't matter, since from the looks of it Peter Berg's movie based on the classic board game won't be using the tagline famous from all the commercials we remember seeing as a kid
The full Prometheus trailer will premiere at Apple.com tomorrow, we're assuming sometime around 3 p.m. EST though you never really know. In the meantime, for everything else you need to know about the upcoming sci-fi adventure
There are some hints and suggestions in there that seem to give at least an idea of where the action will kick off and where our characters will go from here. Below are 5 things I think we now know for sure from The Dark Knight Rises
You can see a lot of familiar players from the first film, including Liam Neeson in the planet's most insane beard, Ralph Fiennes with his customary villainous sneer, and Sam Worthington as the beleaguered hero Perseus-- sporting a lot more hair this time, for what's worth
I stand by what I said earlier this morning about the sound being the most effective part of the trailer-- the chants that have been part of the viral marketing campaign since the summer are even more intense when paired with images of the actual inmates breaking out of the asylum
