Trailer: The Innkeepers

  Albeit a bit spoilerish if you ask me, and totally misleading to boot. Nevertheless, Ti West’s excellent ghost story – a mixture of scares and laughs that somehow manages to do something new with the horror comedy while feeling like a bit of classic spook cinema – now has a trailer. This means it is one step closer to being released by...

Trailer: The Lorax

  I shouldn’t be as offended by how grossly ill advised this trailer hints for the latest is Dr. Seuss film adaptation. I did quite like what Blue Sky Animation did with Horton Hears A Who, although they are not doing this one it is nevertheless is hard to tell from the animated look. It seems that Seuss and CGI are a pretty natural fit. Things look...

Trailer for Herzog’s ‘Into the Abyss’ might drop some jaws.

Perhaps it is my background in sociology that has me so interested. Perhaps it is my unhealthy obsession with Werner Herzog. Or maybe, just maybe, this is going to be one astonishing film documenting those involved in every aspect of a death penalty sentence – in an approach as far away from Dateline ABC as can be. The film is Into the Abyss and it has...

The latest Mission: Impossible sequel has a new trailer.

I have always been very fond of the first Brian De Palma directed Mission: Impossible movie. As a 12 year old, I wore that VHS tape out. Hell, embarrassingly, I even asked my barber at the time if she could give me an Ethan Hunt haircut. Then the sequels were released – and while I appreciated what they tried to accomplish, neither sequel captured the...

Trailer: Hugo (Cabret)

  With its very high profile cast, and Martin Scorsese’s first foray into 3D terrain, the film adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, first shortened to Hugo Cabret, now apparently just Hugo (maybe by release time, this Thanksgiving, it will simply be called “H”) is as much an interest to cinephiles as it may be to family audiences....

Trailer: The Secret World of Arrietty

  Disney released the first trailer for the North American dub of Studio Ghibli’s adaptation of The Borrowers, The Secret World of Arrietty. While the American voice cast (Bridgit Mendler, Will Arnett, Carol Burnett, Amy Poehler) is not as high profile as the UK one (Saorise Ronan, Tom Holland, Olivia Colman, and Mark Strong), this new trailer gives...

Opening Titles for TinTin (Fan made)

This was up on the front page of Vimeo.com today when I logged in. For its simplicity, creativity and completeness (the shifting graphics incorporate elements from all of the Tintin books. If Spielberg’s mo-cap animated film ever spins off a TV series, they would have a wonderful opening title sequence ready...

Trailer: Shame

One of the more polarizing films amoungst my social circles at last years TIFF, Steve McQueen’s follow up to the highly acclaimed Hunger, the equally succinct titled Shame (Kurt’s Review) widens the canvas by having it set in New York City, and drops the directors fascination with macro lenses. One of the stand-out shots in the film is an extended...

Trailer: The Avengers will Avenge the World

Startling realization I had when considering which DC New 52 issues to pick up: I had no interest at all in the Justice League because I was more curious about each superhero’s individual story than jamming them all up together into one story. So what does that mean for my anticipation of The Avengers, which is basically the same thing? Apparently not...

Does Michelle Williams pull it off in the My Week With Marilyn trailer?

Well, I’m going to take a guess and say that the trailer for My Week With Marilyn does a pretty crummy job of representing the film. At least I hope so. Regardless, that probably is not why most people will be seeing this – it will be the curiosity over Michelle Williams’s ability to pull it off. By the looks of it, she very well may have her...
