BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Okay, so the new trailer for the live-action drama Beauty and the Beast is entirely in French. But thankfully fluency in French isn't needed to enjoy this. After all, this is a tale as old as time. Just sit back and relish in the striking visuals Christophe Gans has put together for this dark and dangerous interpretation of the classic story.
Don’t get me wrong; I don’t think this looks like a masterpiece or anything, and just inserting “non-zombie zombie-like creatures” into another film type isn’t exactly state of the art. But it isn’t American-made, which is almost always a plus where cheap horror is concerned, and the storyline does feel somewhat original. And did you see all the awesomely gory practical effects and make-up?
If you're sick of Kristen Stewart-- both her ongoing presence in the tabloids and her dead-eyed work in the Twilight movies-- well, too bad. Twilight may be wrapping up, along with her relationship with Robert Pattinson, but Stewart is lining up a ton of new roles-- and most of them a whole lot more interesting than Twilight ever was
For those of you OHGs out there who are down in the dumps that you can't be in San Diego getting the stars of the movie to sign your stuff, maybe you can take some solace from this new trailer that highlights the bonus features you'll be getting on the Hunger Games Blu-ray and DVD releases.
At this point, you're either going to see The Dark Knight Rises or you're not-- and if you're not, you're probably from some strange breed of human or trapped in a basement somewhere, because it seems impossible right now that anyone can miss it. Even people who go to the movies once a year are planning to see it.
There's no question that The Avengers will be on quite a few Christmas and birthday wish lists this year. Now the folks over at Disney have decided to stoke the fire even higher with this kickass Blu-ray trailer that has damn near convinced me to blow off work and go watch the movie in the theater again right now.
Ever since Paul Blart: Mall Cop became a surprisingly big success in January of 2009, Kevin James has been an unlikely movie star on the rise, whether joining his buddy Adam Sandler in a hit as big (and terrible) as Grown Ups or leading things for himself in Zookeeper
If you're a video game fanatic, you can probably spend years sorting through all the references in here to other games. It's especially unnerving when you get to the end, and not only have they perfectly recreated a Halo-style warfare video game, they've inserted a character who looks exactly like Jane Lynch
Even if you're not especially into male strippers-- and trust me, no one is really into male strippers-- you have to admit the dancing here is kind of amazing, as is Matthew McConaughey's soon-to-be-immortal line "I see a lot of lawbreakers in the room tonight."
If you caught the IMAX preview of The Dark Knight Rises that ran in front of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol last December, or the much-hyped trailer that debuted not long after, then the latest TV spot for the movie is going to look a little familiar
Snow White and the Huntsman may not be an original story, but as a broad adaptation of a very, very old fairy tale, I'm going to give it a pass anyway. Because seriously, who looks at the trailers for this movie-- packed with ravens and swordfights and Charlize Theron dipping herself into a vat of white goo
While Presidential politics become both disappointingly grown-up but also annoying, what we really need is for Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis to step in and provide us some politics conducted with the level of childishness we usually expect.
There's a pretty sharp tonal shift halfway through this trailer, going from the intense action of the Irananian Revolution and the CIA agents charged with rescuing them to the bright sunshine of Hollywood, where Affleck's bearded character cooks up a plan to fake a sci-fi movie that would give the hostages cover
Even before it won the Grand Jury Prize in the narrative feature category-- pretty much the highest award they can give-- Beasts was the film that every single person couldn't stop talking about, the one that when someone asked what your favorite film of the festival was, almost everyone would cite first
Martin Donovan, the actor you may recognize from TV's Boss and Weeds or indie films like Saved!, The Opposite of Sex or Trust, is gearing up to make his directorial debut with Collaborator, in which he also stars as a New York playwright who thinks bad reviews are the worst thing that can happen… until he winds up caught in a hostage crisis
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
