Trailer: Men in Black (Cubed)

By the time you get up to the second sequel or more, you either have to go to Europe or go back in time. It appears that Men In Black 3 has chosen the latter route. The wacky-deadpan tone of things, the signature of the series, can easily support such an easy choice; as evidenced by Josh Brolin playing a young Tommy Lee Jones in the 1960s. Does anyone have any...

Transformers 4 Trailer is Here!

Oh wait, it’s just Hasbro up to their old tricks again. We saw the first trailer for Battleship hit the net a couple of months ago and a lot of people at the time were saying it’s kind got a similar vibe as Transformers. I kind of washed that aside hoping for something a little more interesting, sticking within the confines of the board game....

Trailer: The Wicker Tree

A quite excellent trailer for Robin Hardy’s sequel/re-envisioning of cult favourite The Wicker Man (1973) popped up on the internets today. There is just one thing. The Wicker Tree, as advertised below, is certainly not the film you’ll see when the film gets its January 2012 release. This trailer promises something , dark, majestic, grandiosity....

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt are engaged.

I‘m going to be frank. I’m just hoping the above title brings in the traffic. Where you at, TMZ? Hey, gotta pay the bills somehow, folks. As for the engagement, it is fictional and it will be five years long and it will indeed be between Jason Segel and Emily Blunt in the appropriately titled The Five-Year Engagement, which will be hitting theaters...

Scorsese finally adapting Silence?

It was back in my Cinema Fusion days of film blogging, probably sometime back in ’06, that I first reported that Martin Scorsese was actively working on an adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s 1966 novel Silence. Eagerly, I ordered a used copy from Amazon and blew through reading it in a few sittings. I loved it and waited patiently as news came and went...

Trailer: Cabin in the Woods

Somewhere along the long line of delays and hold-backs, I had forgotten that this film was not directed by Joss Whedon, but rather by Lost writer/producer Drew Goddard. This trailer is a very solid reminder of that fact. I am not sure if I have seen high-tech/puzzlebox combined with spam-in-a-cabin horror in this fashion. (Editor’s Note: Actually there...

Have a look at Daniel Day-Lewis with his Lincoln beard.

It has been quite some time since Spielberg has excited audiences – by my calculations, the last time was with his 2005 masterpiece Munich. Lately, it seems he is more interested in the producing side of filmmaking than the directing – although he now has The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse, neither of which excite me in the least, being released...

Dates of “Shame”

If you’re like me, Steve McQueen’s last feature, Hunger, was an exquisitely torturous affair. Which means you’re probably excited for his follow-up feature, the NC-17 rated, Shame. Some of us in the third you’re have already managed to catch the film, but the rest of it’s have had to wait. Well that wait is almost over. Next month,...

Trailer #2: Shame

Want the heart and soul of Steve McQueen’s second feature, Shame (Kurt’s Review) in 2 minutes? Marvelous editing, it’s like a micro-film in itself. Clearly the ad company have identified the signature scene in the film, one Carey Mulligan crooning New York, New York in a private performance for her brother in the film, played by Micheal...

Pixar’s Brave Gets a Full Trailer

After releasing a teaser trailer a few months ago, Pixar has just dropped the full theatrical trailer for their upcoming Scottish warrior princess film Brave. There’s been a lot of hype about this being Pixar’s first film with a female lead, and good on them for finally doing that and seeming to largely stay away from the Disney-esque princess mold,...
