Here’s another quick look at the upcoming Daniel Radcliffe film “The Woman In Black”. It’s the first film released starring Radcliffe since the Potter series concluded last fall and I imagine this role will go a long way in letting us know whether there’s a career in film for Daniel Radcliffe after the end of Harry Potter.. WIB is a remake of a British TV film from the seventies and is quite a different role that we are used to seeing Radcliffe in. Judging from this 30 second TV spot look for a lot of creepy imagery, foggy marshes and more that a few jump scares. “Woman in Black” hits theaters February 3, 2012.
The story follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent.
In preparation for the release of this trailer which I knew was being released this weekend, my son and I sat down and watched The Two Towers today to get in the mood. It really did the trick. This trailer really puts you right back in The Shire like you never left. For a movie that’s not hitting theaters for another year there is an incredible amount of content here. Watch the trailer, then go back and watch the LOTR trilogy and prepare yourself for the adventure to come. I can’t wait!
After sitting through about a week of bootlegged cam versions of this we now have an official release of the full length trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. I’m continually blown away by Christopher Nolan’s work as a director. He has reached a level of perfection in his work that few directors have even come close to and I expect TDKR to be his best film so far.
Things that stand out to me in this trailer are Bane’s voice. It seems eerily similar to the strained growl of Bale’ Batman voice. No coincidence there I’m sure. Next is Cat Woman and her parallel to the OWS in her mini monologue. There was a lot of talk during the New York stage of production that they would mirror the Wall Street protest and it looks like she is right in the middle of it. Third is the quick shot of Joseph Gordon Levitt. I’m curious what role he will play in this film as rumors have had him playing everything from Robin to Night Wing to a new version of the Joker. All will be revealed when it hits theaters next year. I can’t wait!
The first trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘The Dictator’ has been released.
The comedy, which sees the actor reunite with his ‘Borat’ and ‘Bruno’ director, tells “the heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppresses.
The trailer also features Megan Fox, John C. Reilly and Ben Kingsley, who joined the project this summer.
Fox especially has a funny line after a night with the dictator.
“What’s this, a ruby? Is that a joke? What am I, a Kardashian?”
The first trailer for ‘Men In Black 3′ is giving us a taste of what to expect from the next installment of the franchise.
“Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time,” teases the official description.
“J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right.”
“J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him
With the news that Dark Knight Rising’s trailer would be hitting theaters in December it got a lot of people wondering what other trailers we would see attached to the big holiday movies and it looks like we may see the first trailer for The Hobbit attached to a December release. According to IGN.com Andy Serkis who plays Gollum in the upcoming Hobbit films recently gave an interview and spoke regarding when we could see a trailer.
There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe. It’s just around the corner.
If I was a betting man I would imagine you would see it attached to Peter Jackson’s next film “The Adventures of TinTin” which hits theaters on December 21, 2011.
John Carter is a film that has been passed around from studio to studio for awhile now and it finally looks like Disney is going to be the one to get it onto the big screen. It looks pretty epic mixing sci-fi with swords and sorcery almost like Tron meets Conan. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
We get our first look at the full length trailer today and I’m still a bit torn on how I feel about this film. It seems very derivative of The Japanese film Battle Royale from just a cursory glance. I don’t know much about the back story but I’ll do my best to go into in with an open mind.
Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match.
Michael J. Fox recently performed a re enactment of the rock classic Johnny B. Goode from the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance scene in Back to the Future to raise money for Parkinson’s research. It’s not the first time he has done this as a few years back he performed the same song with The Who at the same event but it’s still pretty cool to see him out there putting on a show and bringing back some great memories.
Over the years Adam Sandler has made 2 different types of movies, movies that make money and movies that don’t make money. It should come as no surprise to you that the amount of money that an Adam Sandler movie makes is directly proportional to how awful the movie is for the people watching it. So terrible movie = lots of money, great movie = no box office business. Check out this cool infographic from ScreenJunkies.com that gives you an inside look at what movies have made Adam Sandler money and why he keeps making bad ones.
Ridley Scott confirmed with the Wall Street Journal Blog Speakeasy that he will indeed be returning to the scene of one of his most beloved sci-fi films, Blade Runner. I’m not a huge fan of the film but I can certainly appreciate what it meant to a generation of sci-fi fans as well as the huge impact it has had on so many films. The challenge now is whether they can recapture that magic and live up to the hype and scrutiny that will surely come.
It’s pretty awesome to be able to get an inside look into Peter Jackson’s world of production on his latest film. He’s really allowed a level of access that is rarely seen on a movie of this scale. In the latest production diary we get an in depth look at what goes into creating an epic 3D film. From what I’ve seen and heard regarding the use of 3D in this film I would expect this to blow away any previous films that have attempted to harness this process. That means you Avatar…
Sometimes I think this guy gets entirely too much hate for what he does. Then sometimes I totally think he deserves it. I’m a bit torn about this trailer. It’s got some very cool music and the cinematography isn’t bad. Even the zombie makeup is pretty original and interesting but then he goes and throws some of the worst special effect shots that I’ve ever seen in a trailer out there. It’s based on a video game and just on his track record with video game adaptations I’m pretty sure this is gonna be an awful movie.
Now not the Marvel comics character Shang-Chi, but a movie version of the ’70s Tv show which starred David Carradine and also had a comic book series. Deadline have the details..
I’m sure any CBMer of a certain age, or even those wise enough to catch some re-runs, remember the Kung Fu Tv series fondly. It starred the late David Carradine as a Shaolin Monk possessed of great martial arts skills as he wanders the American wild west in search of his brother, adventure and enlightenment. It was pretty damn awesome. And now Legendary Entertainment are bringing us a big screen version with none other than Hudson himself at the helm..
Bill Paxton is in talks to direct Kung Fu, a screen adaptation of the classic 1972 TV series that starred David Carradine. Paxton, who
The official plot synopsis for Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of the 2003 Korean film Oldboy has hit the web. Sounding a lot like the original film (as expected), check it out after the jump!
Collider has received some plot details for various Lionsgate films that will be out in the future, and one of those films was for Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin and set to begin production sometime next Spring (Collider says that the film will be released sometime next year). The below synopsis sounds very similar to the plot for the original film (as expected, of course), so while not very revealing, it’s certainly worth a look…
