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.
Remember when I said that if you only watch one movie trailer today, you needed to make it Star Trek Into Darkness? I may have spoken too soon. A new Man of Steel trailer has debuted, and likewise, it might just be the best one yet. Goosebumps is really the best word to describe it. Think about it, this could be the modern Superman movie we've been waiting decades for! In any case, you owe it to yourself to give this one a view. So I take back my previous hyperbole, watch two movie trailers today.
This is probably the best Star Trek Into Darkness preview yet (and possibly the best trailer this year so far). In true Abrams fashion, it manages to set the stakes high without revealing too much of the actual story, and man, is it some powerful stuff. If you watch one trailer today, make it this one.
Our first good look at the next Hunger Games is here, and it's showing off a much more epic scope than its predecessor. The trailer highlights what look like the beginnings of a full-scale rebellion against The Capitol, with Katniss having jumped out of the fire and into the firing line of President Snow. My favorite scene in the previous entry was the District 11 riot, so it's pretty great to see the political repercussions of the first film in this initial preview. Plus, it's got a little Philip Seymour Hoffman, and that's never a bad thing. Check it out below.
Let’s talk about books for a minute. Okay, fine, we’ll talk about movies based on books. We all know that Baz Luhrmann has directed a new film version of The Great Gatsby starring the inestimable Leonardo DiCaprio, and, as a big fan of the Fitzgerald classic, I’m eagerly awaiting its May 10 release. Who knows, maybe this will be the movie that finally wins Leo an Oscar.
Now You See Me, a movie about a group of magicians turned thieves, has gotten a brand new trailer; building up more excitement, if that's even possible. Not only does it contain big names like Jessie Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Michael Cane, and several more, it also has a very original plot.
A full length trailer for The Hangover Part III has been released, and if nothing else, it's a whole lot more coherent than that teaser. The wolfpack is back on another crazy adventure, with the exception of Doug, who always seems to get the short end of the stick in this franchise. The upcoming sequel is also adding John Goodman, who plays a pretty major role in setting up the gang's journey back to Las Vegas. Check out the new trailer below.
Finally! After almost a full year of teasing, a trailer for Neill Blomkamp's second film, Elysium, has been released. It's touches of District 9, a little bit of Halo, and a whole heaping of crazy looking sci-fi action.
