Here’s the Trailer for PITCH PERFECT, Just In case We Didn’t Have Enough Musicals

Monday, June 18th, 2012

pitch-perfectHow many fat jokes can you fit into one trailer?  Wait, is that a pun?  Here’s the trailer for the musical “comedy” Pitch Perfect starring Anna Kendrick who goes to an all-girls college and reluctantly joins a cappella group.  From there as I said we get a lot of fat jokes and sing offs.

Do these people ever get time to study?  That would be awesome if the movie just freeze frames on them celebrating a win at regionals when a caption comes on the screen saying: “the group celebrated that night, but were in dismay the next morning when they realized they didn’t study for exams.  They all failed”.  Pay me.

Pitch Perfect opens on October 5th.

Trailer for END OF WATCH Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña

end-watch

Here is the first trailer for End of Watch, which I was a little skeptical of as it uses the found-footage gimmick.  Saying that, it does seem to work pretty well here; who among us didn’t like watching COPS on TV back in the day?  Writer-director David Ayer (Dark Blue, Training Day) knows a thing or two about cop stories, so we are in good company there.

The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, End of Watch opens September 28th.

A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.

Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s darkest, most violent corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
