Details released on next Coen brothers movie

Posted on 31 August 2011 by TH3 No08

I love the Coen brothers and they can do pretty much no wrong in my eyes. I also love folk music so when I heard that the Coens next movie would be taking place in the world on the 60′s New York folk scene I was stoked. This may not be the huge hit that the last Coen brothers movie “True Grit” was but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a chance to be great.
According to Variety the Coen brothers are teaming with Studio Canal, Scott Rudin, and Robert Graf. This picture will mark the third team-up for the quartet, all of whom collaborated on “True Grit” and “No Country for Old Men”. “Inside Llewyn Davis” centers around Llewyn Davis’ struggles as a folk musician during the genre’s 1960s heyday in New York City.

Die Hard 5 has it’s director…

Posted on 31 August 2011 by TH3 No08

I wasn’t a huge fan of Die Hard 4 but I do have a soft spot for the first the first three movie. I loved the all out action of the first two and I thought Samuel Jackson was a great addition to the third but part four seemed to really miss the mark both tonally and story wise. There’s nothing in the track record of director John Moore who was hired to direct Die Hard 5 that makes me think he will do any better. With the exception of Behind Enemy Lines, I have not been particularly impressed by his work which includes Max Payne, The Omen remake, and Flight of the Phoenix. We all know that Bruce Willis has the ultimate say in how this movie turns out but a good director (cough, Justin Lin, cough) would go a long way in turning this franchise around.

Josh Brolin attached to star in Oldboy remake

Posted on 29 August 2011 by TH3 No08

There’s been a lot talk lately about Josh Brolin starring in Spike Lee’s remake of the classic film Oldboy and now it is official. Brolin is attached to the film and will be playing the lead character of Oh Daesu from the original. Also rumored to be taking the role of the evil counterpart Woo-Jin Lee is Christian Bale. These two actors combined with Spike Lee’s talent for story telling could make for a very dynamic retelling of the original story. The only concern I would have for this remake is how much of the story would have to changed for American audiences for it to be more palatable. There’s a lot of violence and the twist at the end of the movie will definitely be reworked or this movie will not make a dollar in American theaters and that’s super sad. Check out the trailer for the original for a taste of what’s to come (hopefully).

Official Trailer for The Skin I Live In

Posted on 29 August 2011 by TH3 No08

This is the first Antonio Banderas film I’ve seen in a long time that actually looks like something worth checking out. I feel like his foreign language films allow him to get away from the characters he’s been type cast here as in the U.S. and do some very cool stuff. This trailer certainly looks to be very different from what we are used to seeing him in.

Ever since his wife was burned in a car crash, Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon, has been interested in creating a new skin with which he could have saved her. After twelve years, he manages to cultivate a skin that is a real shield against every assault.

In addition to years of study and experimentation, Robert needed three more things: no scruples, an accomplice and a human guinea pig. Scruples were never a problem. Marilia, the woman who looked after him from the day he was born, is his most faithful accomplice. And as for the human guinea pig…

The film hits theaters on October 14th.

New Apollo 18 trailer arrives

Posted on 29 August 2011 by TH3 No08

Regardless of how you feel about the found footage genre you have to give these guys credit for telling a story that’s outside the box. This is by far the best trailer we’ve seen for Apollo 18 and certainly got my undivided attention.

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

Apollo 18 opens on September 2nd.

Hombre y Tierra looking for funding through Kickstarter.com

Posted on 26 August 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s hard to make a film. No one ever tells you that. They tell you how fun it is on set and how amazing it is to see your work on the big screen but they never really tell you what happens in between the time you finish your edit and the first time see your film projected on the big screen and that’s the fact you have to spend a lot of your own money to market your film and get it the exposure it needs at festivals. It’s not cheap to go the indie route and that’s what this post is about. I wrote, produced, edited, and sound designed Hombre y Tierra and now that it’s finished it needs some help getting out there so we can market it and sell it.
That’s where you come in. The other producers and I are going through Kickstarter.com to raise funds for festivals and marketing and we ask that you give what you can to help us out. Watch the video, read the press release, get the info you need and do what you can to help a group of film makers live their dream.

The Coen Brothers Short Film “World Cinema” is pretty, pretty good…

Posted on 26 August 2011 by TH3 No08

I ran across this short while perusing the filmschoolrejects.com Short Film Of The Day column and cant say enough about how much I enjoyed it (the column and the film). World Cinema comes from To Each His Own Cinema which is a collective film of 33 shorts directed by different directors about their feelings about Cinema. It’s a perfect statement on how appearances can be deceiving and how films can connect us despite the fact that we are all very different people and also how we sometimes take for granted the fact that you don’t have to be a film snob elitist to enjoy something a little deeper. Enjoy.

Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star Trailer

Posted on 24 August 2011 by TH3 No08

There’s not a whole lot I can say about this movie that you can’t find out by just watching this trailer but what I will say is that Nick Swardson is a comic genius and I’ll give him a shot even in something that looks as weird as this. For lack of a better term it’s just… weird.

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star is a new comedy starring Nick Swardson, Christina Ricci, Don Johnson, and Stephen Dorff. Bucky (Swardson) is a small town grocery bagger, going nowhere in life — until he discovers that his conservative parents were once adult film stars! Armed with the belief that he has found his destiny, Bucky packs up and heads out to LA, hoping to follow in his parents’ footsteps.

Underworld: Awakening Trailer Underwhelms…

Posted on 24 August 2011 by TH3 No08

There was a time when the idea of an Underworld sequel was interesting to me but two lackluster sequels have left me generally uninterested in anything they have to offer. Bringing back Kate Bekinsale twelve years after the previous movie might bring back some of the original audience but the 3d money grab will keep a lot of fans away who were previously disappointed and see this as nothing more than an attempt to jump on a gimmick band wagon.

Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.

Jack and Jill International Trailer

Posted on 24 August 2011 by TH3 No08

I’m not sure how i feel about this one. There were moments in this trailer that seemed genuinely funny but there were also moments that are cringe worthy. Al Pacino? Really? Adam Sandler has been hit or miss since he started producing his own movies so this one could go either way. Lets hope its more Happy Gilmore than Grown Folks.

Resistance 3 Teaser Trailers

Posted on 24 August 2011 by TH3 No08

I’m not a huge fan of FPS games but I did enjoy the first Resistance and though I never picked up the second one this games looks pretty amazing. If the actual game-play is anywhere close to what we see in these teaser trailers this could be game of the year material.

America is lost. 4 years after the end of Resistance 2, dishonorably discharged Sentinel Joseph Capelli is in hiding from the Chimeran Menace with other survivors, including his new wife and young son.

But when Dr. Fyodor Malikov arrives with the opportunity to deliver a blow to the occupying Chimeran force, Capelli must leave his family and journey the harrowing road from Oklahoma to New York City. Along the way, he

4 New teaser videos for The Walking Dead Season 2

Posted on 23 August 2011 by TH3 No08


I wasn’t a huge fan of the first season of season one of The Walking Dead. I felt it was uneven at times, and strayed to far away from the source material towards the end of the season. With that being said it was still must see television for me because of my love for the comic it was based on. With all the turmoil on set regarding Darabont’s departure it will be very interesting seeing the direction season 2 takes and how much rope they will be given if the ratings don’t live up to the first seasons sucsess. Here are 4 teasers from AMC.tv to keep our interest up during the long wait until the October 2011 return.

Ryan Adams debuts new single Lucky Now

Posted on 23 August 2011 by TH3 No08

I’m pretty picky when it comes to music but I’m also loyal so when I find an artist who fits into my wheel house I tend to stick with them through the good times and the bad. Back in 2001 I came across a music show late one night called “Crossroads” featuring a fairly unknown singer songwriter by the name of Ryan Adams dueting with the legendary Elton John (and holding his own pretty well) and I immediately knew this was gonna be a beautiful relationship. He makes awesome music and I enjoy it, It’s as simple as that.
That’s not to say that he hasn’t tried my patience at times. His foray into space metal on last years Orion was certainly not my favorite album of 2010 but I knew if I just stuck around a little longer he’d be back to his old ways and it looks like Adams has done just that. His first song off of the October 11 2011 release Ashes & Fire called Lucky Now begins with a melodic blend of heartfelt lyrics and acoustic guitar that falls somewhere between Easy Tiger and Cardinology and evolves from there. A twisting turning story that unfolds in his voice and guitar, Lucky Now is a solid return to form for Ryan Adams for what looks to be a continued mutually beneficial relationship. Enjoy the first song and pre-order the album here.
