Check out the new Eagle Eye movie trailer, as seen below. This movie looks pretty cool, though could be one of those films that ends up being preposterously bad if there are too many plot holes. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson, Michael Chiklis, Anthony Mackie and Billy Bob Thornton, though doesn’t the voice sound like Julianne Moore?
I, like many people, have been skeptical about the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie. After all, it’s an animated film, and Star Wars isn’t meant to be animated, at least not on the big screen.
Thankfully, the new movie trailer actually makes the movie look pretty decent. The trailer is treated no different than the previews for any of the other Star Wars film, with brooding music that leads to the standard Star Wars music. There’s very little dialogue – playing it safe, I see – and lots of long distance shots, which is where the visual effects look the best. All in all, this is a very good movie trailer, especially given the footage.
Unfortunately, I still think releasing this film to the big screen is a mistake. Yes, it’s going to make much more money than it would have on TV, but there’s just something about releasing an animated Star Wars to theaters that seems damaging to the series as a whole (yes, even given the fact that the prequels weren’t exactly fabulous). Star Wars: The Animated Series is a great idea, and as long as it stays on TV it can remain fairly independent from the movies. However, with its theatrical release upcoming, it’s going to be very hard to separate it out. And considering that the characters look pretty silly, that’s not good.
The new romantic drama Elegy stars the unlikely duo of Sir Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz. I’m not completely sure who’s getting the better deal here, but I’m pretty sure the much-older Kingsley is getting an unfair benefit. And that’s what the movie is about. He has a perfectly fine but ultimately loveless relationship with Patricia Clarkson, who still looks pretty good for her age, but is absolutely enthralled by the younger Cruz. And you know what? Cruz digs his skinny little frame, too.
As far as romantic dramas go, Elegy looks pretty good. The movie trailer is pieced together well, with tantalizing music and a clean, solid look. The trailer maybe shows a bit much, but for movies like this, that’s OK – as long as the ending isn’t revealed, a movie like this can show all the scenes in the world. And the great thing about Elegy? It could go many ways. Given the age difference, it’s possible Kingsley and Cruz won’t live happily ever after. Hell, Kingsley may even die.
Elegy looks pretty good. Kingsley has tainted his reputation so much over the last few years that it’s nice to see him in something a bit more respectable.
The movie trailer for Punisher: War Zone was released a few days ago. Strangely, when I went and saw The Incredible Hulk, neither it nor The Dark Knight played before it, though I’m guessing most theaters got a whiff of it.
The teaser trailer is pretty good considering the quality of the movie, which looks questionable at best. The marketing department has done a good job of building an action-packed, gun blazing, exciting teaser trailer, but Punisher: War Zone does not have me begging for more. I’m sure it will be mindless fun, but the action just screams of Hitman, which was all style and not much substance. Seeing Frank Castle spin around on a chandelier firing dual pistols means fun action, but not necessarily good action. Throw in a really bad one-liner at the end and we have ourselves a problem, folks.
Maybe I’m being unfair to Punisher: War Zone, but this looks like a really good teaser trailer for a not-so-good action movie.
I’ll provide my opinions on this one and the several other movie trailers that have been released in recent days later this week, but here’s the third, all-new movie trailer for the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight returns:
The movie trailer really doesn’t show much new footage, but things are presented in a different way. They are taking great care to slowly tune each marketing piece that comes to audiences, as this movie trailer is even better than the last. The music fades out in a couple weird spots, and I wish they would end the trailer with more of a money shot, but that’s just being picky.
It’s no surprise that on the eve of the release of The Incredible Hulk, audiences get treated to the teaser trailer for the upcoming movie sequel Punisher: War Zone. Watch the teaser trailer below and let me know what you think:
Check out the new movie trailer for the upcoming limited-release film Kabluey, which stars Lisa Kudrow, Teri Garr, Christine Taylor, Conchata Ferrell, Chris Parnell and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The official Kabluey synopsis is as follows:
Inept Salman (Scott Prendergast) comes to help his sister-in-law (Lisa Kudrow) tend to her homicidal toddlers while Salman’s brother is off fighting in Iraq. Salman must take a humiliating job as a giant blue corporate mascot to help make ends meet and hold the family together. Packed with a parade of delightful comedy character actors, “Kabluey” is a hilarious, unique and heartfelt comedy.
Here’s the movie trailer for Vin Diesel’s upcoming sci-fi action movie Babylon A.D.:
Paramount Pictures has just released the movie trailer for the upcoming movie Hotel for Dogs, which debuts January 16, 2009. You can watch the Hotel for Dogs movie trailer below:
Here is the official synopsis for Hotel for Dogs:Hotel for Dogs, stars Emma Roberts, Jake T. Austin, Lisa Kudrow, Kevin Dillon and Don Cheadle in a smart, funny comedy adventure that shows how far love and imagination can take you. When their new guardians forbid 16-year old Andi (Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Austin) to have a pet, Andi has to use her quick wit to help find a new home for their dog, Friday. The resourceful kids stumble upon an abandoned hotel and using Bruceâ€™s talents as a mechanical genius, transform it into a magical dog-paradise for Friday â€“ and eventually for all Fridayâ€™s friends. When barking dogs make the neighbors suspicious, Andi and Bruce use every invention they have to avoid anyone discovering “who let the dogs in.”
After complaining about the lack of a really good English-language movie trailer, the English-language version of the Russian X-Files: I Want to Believe movie trailer has popped online over at YouTube. Now that the trailer’s in English, we can actually get a few clues about the plot – but still, Carter and 20th Century Fox are keeping the plot well under wraps.
Here’s the new X-Files: I Want to Believe movie trailer (I expect a higher quality version to pop online sooner than later):
The X-Files: I Want to Believe is coming to theaters on July 25, less than two months away. The movie is arguably the biggest movie on 20th Century Fox’s roster for 2008, and if not at least in the top three behind The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Happening.
The X-Files 2 has a huge built-in fan base and is an established franchise that Fox should be milking for all it’s worth. So, why oh why is the Internet not swarming with promotions?
There has been a teaser trailer. There’s been a full-length trailer. Neither of which have been very inspiring. As an X-Files fan, I’m excited, but the trailers haven’t blown me away – which means that non-fans, an audience Chris Carter and Fox is hoping to draw into theaters, are probably not very impressed either. To cap things off, the movie has been titled I Want to Believe, which, frankly, is almost as bad as 2 Fast 2 Furious.
The only thing really going for the movie is that Fox is doing a good job of keeping the plot under wraps. There have been plenty of false rumors and guesswork, but nothing that amounts to truly viral marketing. Why isn’t Fox doing what Paramount did for Cloverfield? Fake websites, Internet fanaticism and, perhaps, more promotion in theaters. I have yet to see The X-Files 2 marketed in theaters, which is pretty odd for a franchise film set to be released in the middle of the summer.
Lastly, take a look at the Russian X-Files movie trailer below. The trailer pretty much kicks ass; why don’t the American movie trailers take the same approach?
Watch the funny new R-rated “teaser trailer” for Zack and Miri Make a Porno, the new Kevin Smith movie coming to theaters this October. The video isn’t as much an actual teaser trailer but a series of clips of Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks attempting to cast their porno. Warning: there are swear words, so if you are for some reason offended by such words, don’t watch.
The Red Band trailer for the upcoming Coen Brothers movie Burn After Reading went online today over at Apple.com. It is definitely not along the same vein as Joel and Ethan Coen’s last film, No Country for Old Men, but still looks pretty good. Here’s how the studio describes the movie, which is set to be released in September 12, 2008:
A dark spy-comedy from Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen. An ousted CIA officialâ€™s (Academy Award nominee John Malkovich) memoir accidentally falls into the hands of two unwise gym employees intent on exploiting their find.
The trailer is pretty funny, in an offbeat way – what else would you expect from the Coens? Most noticeable is the fact that the movie has an absolutely killer cast, specifically George Clooney, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton. You really can’t get much better than that unless you threw in a Meryl Streep.
A lot of people, including myself, have been underwhelmed by The Incredible Hulk thus far; I am guessing it is not going to be the massive blockbuster of the summer. Thankfully, this new, shorter movie trailer that apparently premiered in theaters with Speed Racer, is much better than previous efforts by the marketing department. Interestingly, the movie removes Abomination and plays a lot more like a teaser trailer than anything else. The result is that the trailer shows less of the questionable special effects and more of the Hulk, always a good combo.
Watch the new Incredible Hulk trailer below:
I just watched the new Baghead movie trailer (embedded below), and I must say this movie has promise. It starts out looking like a slasher film, and then turns into a romantic comedy of sorts. A woman has a “dream” about a guy with a bag over his head watching her from the woods, and she and a group of friends – who are spending a few days at a cabin in the middle of nowhere – decide to make a movie about it. One guy has the hots for one of the women, and uses his role as her boyfriend in the film to make a move on her. That’s cute.
And then, back to horror movie! What if it wasn’t a dream that the woman had? What if there really was a stalker roaming around that wears a bag over his head? What if he gets angry?
At the very least, I’m curious. At the most, Baghead could be good fun. This kind of film can be tricky to pull off, however. First, having seen pictures and posters for the movie, I had no idea that the film was a horror flick. Even the trailer isn’t conclusive to the fact that there really is a bad person running around. So is it or is it not a horror film? If not, Sony Pictures Classics needs to make that clear. If it is, they also need to make it clear. If it is a comedy-horror film, then balance it out a little bit. It’s hard to tell, and that could spell disaster.
Here’s the Baghead movie trailer:
