Posted on: September 3rd, 2010 HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN Trailer!

hobohobo

Just in time for Machete hitting theaters this weekend, we’ve got our first trailer for Hobo With A Shotgun, and AICN landed themselves a doozy - an unrated, head-splitting trailer with Rutger Hauer as the gun-toting titular Hobo.

Watch the trailer now, ya lousy cocksuckers:

I’ll be sleeping in your motherfucking carcass… TA-NIGHT!

Posted on: August 17th, 2010 TRAILER For Joaquin Phoenix Doc: I’M STILL HERE

A couple of weeks ago we got a look at the poster for I’m Still Here, the documentary following the apparent fall, for a lack of better words, of actor Joaquin Phoenix. Now Yahoo gives us the first trailer for the film, which is a nice teaser for the piece even if it does leave out all the juicy stuff. Watch it now, embedded below:

The film’s official synopsis seems to distance itself from being a shocking tell-all of a Hollywood weirdo, and instead sells itself more along the lines of an unlikely rap underdog:

“I’m Still Here” follows Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix as he announces his retirement from a successful film career in the fall of 2008 and sets off to reinvent himself as a hip hop musician.

Either way I’m sure we’re in for quite an eye-opener, be it the real Joaquin or a bold ruse.

I’m Still Here, directed by Casey Affleck, opens September 10.

Posted on: August 13th, 2010 WATCH THIS: Scott Pilgrim Animated Short

We’re living and breathing everything Scott Pilgrim this week as the big-screen adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, hits theaters. You’ve already read our review, I’m sure, so I need not reiterate just how awesome the film is, or the books for that matter, but here’s a little treat sure to please any fan.

[Adult Swim] has put together a Scott Pilgrim animated short taken straight out of the pages of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic. Click the image below to watch the short, it’s well worth a viewing for any fan.

And don’t forget to rush your theater this weekend and watch the film. So great.

Posted on: August 12th, 2010 TRAILER: Skyline

Skyline is still a relatively lesser-known upcoming sci-fi, despite some coverage and advertising at SDCC, but the debut of the film’s trailer might put it on more people’s radars.

We’ve been due a big-scale alien invasion film for a while now, and Skyline looks to promise one in the vain of Independence Day. Whether or not you consider that a good thing is up to you, but the trailer looks pretty.

What I’m most looking forward to – Donald Faison in an alien film. I’m currently re-watching Scrubs and can’t get enough of him. He’s been in need of a proper film, even if he seems mismatched in this case.

Official Synopsis:

In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth. Skyline is directed and produced by the Brothers Strause (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem), whose company Hydraulx has provided visual effects for Avatar, Iron Man 2, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and 300.

Posted on: August 7th, 2010 TRAILER: I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE Remake

isoyg_featured

I recently wrote about I Spit On Your Grave, its controversy and its impact in my article Box Office Gross: 8 Films Built On Shock. For 1978, the film – albeit hard-to-watch, the very essence of exploitative – did have important things to say about gender roles and on the whole what you can and can’t get away with in film.

Now we’re 32 years later and sodomy is a constant joke in some cartoons and a woman nearly became president (egads, keep that hate mail in the draft folder, I acknowledge that yes, even today, sexual discrimination and misogyny run rampant, still) and the thought of an effective retelling of the film seems a little redundant. There’s really nothing new or relevant to tell with a remake of ISOYG, but hey, this is Hollywood and nothing is sacred.

We now have our first trailer for the film and, big surprise, it looks entirely like I imagined. If anything though, it does look like it will be a brutal revenge flick, more so than the Last House on the Left remake, which is a pretty fair comparison seeing as the films are cut from the same cloth. Take a look below:

Now here’s a look at the 2010 poster and the 1978 poster, for comparison.

Posted on: August 4th, 2010 FABLE III Opening Cinematic Sneak Peek

Lionhead studios are gambling heavily that their Fable III release is going to be epic. Ever since the launch of the first Fable, millions of people have taken to the streets of Albion to be as good, or evil, as they please. And now we have a sneak peek at the opening cinematic for Fable III starring…a chicken?

I love the look of all the Fable cinematics, and the metaphor for the game isn’t lost on me, but a chicken?

Look for Fable III to drop October 26, 2010.

Posted on: August 3rd, 2010 TRAILER: Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark

Here’s a little fallout from SDCC that those in attendance were lucky to see – the trailer for Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, co-written and produced by Guillermo Del Toro.

Check out the trailer below. This one is definitely on my radar now, not only because of Del Toro being involved, but I have to give it to the trailer for being legitimately creepy.


Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark in HD

Trailer Park Movies | MySpace Video

Official Synopsis:

Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion’s builder a century ago. When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house’s bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it’s not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
When a little girl (Bailee Madison) is sent to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes) in the old mansion they are renovating, she unwittingly unleashes malevolent creatures bent on destroying all of them.

Posted on: July 29th, 2010 TRAILER: DC Universe Online

DC_scr_Doomsday_0610

It’s been over two years since the announcement of DC Universe Online, Sony Online Entertainment’s MMORPG based on, you got it, the DC comics universe, and we’re finally in countdown mode to the November release. This isn’t the first look we’ve had at the game, but check out this amazing new trailer below, featuring members of the Justice League in a massive, city brawl with some of the biggest DC villains. This is what I want a Justice League movie to look like. Actually, just make a full length animated feature just like this, thanks.

I’m not a huge MMORPG guy – never played a second of WoW in my life – but can see myself getting very addicted to a game like this based on the trailer alone. Well done, DC marketing team.

Also noteworthy is the games voice cast including Adam Baldwin as Superman, James Marsters as Lex Luthor and Braniac, Kevin Conroy as Batman, and the one and only Mark Hamil returning as The Joker.

The game is scheduled for release November 2 for PC and PS3.

Posted on: July 26th, 2010 Zack Snyder’s SUCKER PUNCH Trailer

Those lucky enough to get into Comic-Con’s Hall H on Saturday were the first to see footage for Zack Snyder’s next film, Sucker Punch, while those of us not at SDCC were given six character posters for the flick. Luckily, Legendary Pictures has made the trailer available in glorious hi-def (no crappy bootlegs here, kids).

Click the image below to head on over to Apple to see the Sucker Punch trailer, which honestly, kicks a whole lot of ass.

Posted on: July 22nd, 2010 New TRON: LEGACY Trailer

While those of us not at SDCC missed out on a whole bunch of Tron: Legacy footage, it’s not a total loss – Yahoo threw up a second full-length trailer, and is doesn’t disappoint. Watch it now, embedded below:

With Inception out of the way, Tron is now my most anticipated film of the year, alongside next month’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. How awesome does young Flynn look? And light jets?! Awesome.

December seems so far away now…

Posted on: July 19th, 2010 First Footage From THE GOON!

goonteaser_featured

If you haven’t read The Goon, the critically-acclaimed Eisner Award winning comic series from one of the greatest comedic minds in the comic biz, Eric Powell, you haven’t lived (read more of my gushing here). It truly is one of the most unique, funny and gorgeous books on the shelf. And like anything successful, Hollywood came a knocking, this time in the form of a full-length animated feature. Could that get any better? Yes. The film is being produced by David Fincher, based on a screenplay from Powell himself. And who’s voicing the leads, Goon and Frankie? Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti, respectively and perfectly.

Things seemed to be moving at a crawl for the Goon film, but finally we’ve got our first look at a teaser, and a promise that more is to come this week at SDCC. Take a look at the teaser below, and be forewarned… it is as awesome as you’d hoped it would be:

Stay tuned for more news on The Goon following the panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con!

Posted on: July 8th, 2010 New Full Length Trailer For MACHETE

Grindhouse lives on in Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming Machete, the full-length feature based on the fake movie trailer of the same name. Back in May we got our first look at the film with an “illegal” teaser, and now we have our first “official” trailer. Watch the video, embedded below:

Machete at IGN.com

While I think I prefer the original teaser to this trailer, I still can’t wait so see what Robert Rodriguez and co. cook up with this one. It just looks to be a ton of fun.

Machete opens September 3, with a stellar cast including Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Don Johnson, Rose McGowan, Lindsay “Jailbird” Lohan and Jeff Fahey.

Posted on: July 1st, 2010 LET ME IN Trailer Seems Faithful

Yesterday our very own Moks posted his re-view for 2008’s beautiful vampire film Let The Right One In, and coincidentally, today we get our first look at the trailer for the film’s American remake.

The re-vamped version.. get it… vamped… is called Let Me In – written and directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), and starring Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) and Richard Jenkins (The Visitor).

Watch the international trailer, embedded below:

Official synopsis:

An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young newcomer to his small New Mexico town, and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood in Let Me In, a haunting and provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves (Cloverfield).

Twelve-year old Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar®nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.

When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself. Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen’s efforts to help her and her increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she’s hiding an unthinkable secret.

Let Me In is set to hit theaters October 1st this year.

Posted on: June 30th, 2010 PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 Gets a TRAILER

And so it has begun – I predict Paranormal Activity to turn into the next Saw franchise, in that every halloween we will be seeing a new installment. Regardless, Paranormal Activity was better than Saw, and the trailer released last night for Paranormal Activity 2 looks interesting. If anything it looks like those involved are sticking to what made the first film work. Watch the kinda-creepy trailer below.

WARNING: The trailer contains SPOILERS. It literally begins with the last scene of the first film, so if you haven’t seen Paranormal Activity, proceed at your own spoilery risk.

A solid teaser, I think, for a film that may or may not be cranked out to make some halloween bucks and derail Saw once again. It could also be great, it’s too soon to tell. Correct me if I’m wrong, but is that not the same house from the first film? And standing in the doorway, is that not… ?

Paranormal Activity 2 hits theaters October 22 of this year.
