Let's just admit it: The Japanese trailer for The Wolverine is better than anything officially released stateside. While some of the footage remains the same, there are two awesome changes. For starters, our friends in Japan will be buying tickets for Wolverine: Samurai. No word on why the title is different across the Pacific, but as we all know, anything with a samurai is automatically better than anything without.
The first official trailer for Thor: The Dark World is finally here, and it doesn’t disappoint. The Son of Odin has returned and must fight against the mysterious Dark Elves in a decidedly more serious and action packed sequel. A love triangle also seems to be in the works between Thor’s mortal love, Jane, and his Asgardian comrade Lady Sif. Plus, Loki’s back!
The first footage of Keanu Reeves' directorial debut has made its way online, and it looks like a martial arts movie straight out of the 80s. Man of Tai Chi might have an artsy title, but the film itself looks little more interested in the fight choreography. Also, and it's not fair to draw judgements just from a trailer, but it really feels like Keanu Reeves is gradually forgetting how to this acting thing.
Hit-Girl's back and she's not playing nice. The pint-sized bad-ass with the Kill Bill moves and the R-rated vocabulary wants you to forget about all those other superhero movies. In her world, anyone can become a costumed vigilante, anyone can have their revenge, and anyone — without a moment's notice — can get their eyes bloodily gouged out.
It seems that not even Green Lantern could spoil Ryan Reynolds' taste for CGI-monster-filled blockbusters. His latest film, R.I.P.D. puts him in the role of a dead cop recruited by a supernatural organization that polices wayward spirits. Basically, imagine Men in Black, but replace the aliens with ghosts, Will Smith with Ryan Reynolds, and Tommy Lee Jones with Jeff Bridges doing a Sam Elliott doing a Jeff Bridges impersonation.
Only God Forgives, the upcoming Nicolas Winding Refn film, has released a new trailer today that gives a tantalizing glimpse of a movie that some are predicting will sweep the boards at all of major award ceremonies this year. The film stars Ryan Gosling and follows the exploits of Julian, a Bangkok drug smuggler who is told by his mother to hunt down his brother’s killer.
Pirates, kings, an island full of prostitutes… The trailer for Starz' upcoming series, Black Sails, is the stuff dreams are made of — assuming you're the sort of person who dreams about swashbuckling fun freed from kiddie ratings. (And who isn't, right?)
We've seen screenshots. We've seen gameplay. We've ever seen a trailer, but my brain still refuses to process the fact that there's a Far Cry 3 spin-off starring a "cyber commando" in the "toxic ashes of Vietnam War II." I'm probably not going to believe it's a real thing until I play through the entire game, put down the controller, and spend the next four hours questioning the meaning of existence. Until then, enjoy this live action trailer for the game below, and hope it's still a real thing once the May 1st release date rolls around.
Set for release on July 19, James Wan's horror film, The Conjuring, is based on true events that happened to the Perron Family in 1970. The extended trailer, released as a WonderCon exclusive, was some of the most terrifying previews I have ever seen. The eldest daughter, Andrea Perron is writing a series of books about the experiences, some of which are in featured in the film. The first two volumes of House of Darkness, House of Light are out in bookstores now.
