BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
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?
