It is simply unacceptable that we have gone this long without an article about this trailer. This is the concluding film of the “Blood and Ice Cream” trilogy, director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s three films of horrifying violence and Cornetto ice cream. The previous installments in the series, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, are two of the best comedies of the 00′s. So we have reason to be excited for this film. | Full Story
Ever since Disney acquired Marvel, the smart people have quietly let their consternation about continued media consolidation simmer. Everyone else has been wondering when we’d get an animated movie based on a Marvel comic. Well, here you are. The first Marvel superhero property to get the Mouse House treatment is… Big Hero 6.
Yeah, remember Big Hero 6?
The series is basically an extended homage to Japanese art and culture, created in 1998 by Steven T. | Full Story
Man, these parodies of Oscar bait movies just get more and more convincing! This fake trailer for The Butler posits a movie based on the real life of Eugene Allen, who served as a butler in the White House for over 30 years, from the 1950′s through the 80′s. Forest Whitaker plays “Cecil Gaines,” Allen’s fictional counterpart, while Oprah (Oprah!) plays his wife.
And just see who else is in this! | Full Story
There are four superhero movies coming out this year. The Wolverine is the one that I keep forgetting is happening. It’s not the movie’s fault… wait, yes it is. Because I mean, good grief, Wolverine has already been the star of four other movies. I tire of this hairy immortal Canadian with metal claws.
Anyway, a new one-minute trailer for the film premiered at CinemaCon, and now it’s online for the world to see. | Full Story
This footage from Pacific Rim caused quite a stir when it came out at Wondercon last month. Originally, it was only meant to be presented for those lucky con-goers, but now, Warner Bros has graciously released it online for the whole world to see. Have a looksy. I think it sells the movie even better than any of the trailers up til now.
There are many great things in this footage. | Full Story
I really, really wish I’d been able to see this movie at Sundance. David Gordon Green went on the strangest career turnabout ever, taking time off from quiet indie films like All the Real Girls and George Washington to direct Pineapple Express, Your Highness, and (shudder) The Sitter. But now he’s back in indie mode, albeit with some quite un-indie leading men: Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.
Rudd and Hirsch are in-laws who spend the summer of 1988 painting traffic lines on a remote rural road. | Full Story
Another trailer has come out for this summer’s sequel to 2010′s “oh yeah that was a movie” RED. Bruce Willie, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich are back as former spies who continue to kick ass in their old age. Because Hollywood is loath to ever remind us that we age and eventually can’t do certain things anymore.
They’re joined by, among others, Anthony Hopkins as a scientist who appears to specialize in wackiness and Catherine Zeta-Jones as an old flame of Bruce Willie’s. | Full Story
I’d have thought Marvel would want to premiere this with Iron Man 3, but here it is right now: the first trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Have a looksy:
- It’s very nice to see all manner of environs as a setting for the film, after Thor, which was stuck in either greenscreenland or Arizona.
- The action in this one trailer is more exciting than pretty much anything I can remember from the first movie (which is not much). | Full Story
Another trailer has come out for the “timely” Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson-starring comedy The Internship. It mostly covers the same story beats and jokes from the first trailer, with some new stuff mixed in. Now we can ascertain that Wilson’s character will probably have a romance with Rose Byrne’s character. Thrilling!
Here is the trailer:
- Vaughn and Wilson’s characters don’t know who Professor X is, but they know of the Hunger Games series? | Full Story
“A little party never killed nobody.” Oh, but don’t you see? Partying does kill Gatsby! D’oh ho, so clever. Also, that’s “anybody,” Miss Fergie. A little party never killed anybody.
This new, extended TV spot for The Great Gatsby (which is basically a trailer on TV) continues to have fun setting ragtime antics to modern pop songs. It’s cute. I like it. Director Baz Luhrmann is good at doing that (it’s why Moulin Rouge is so great, and yes it is great shut up). | Full Story
