Here is the first trailer for Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s novel Ender’s Game. It will also be attached to Star Trek Into Darkness.
Starring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley, Ender’s Game opens November 1st.
The new trailer for Iron Man 3 isn’t as dark as the last trailer; instead it goes heavy on the action. Writer-director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) might also be trying to give more depth to the character of Tony Stark after so many films. He has witness a lot, and after all, is still a man. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, and Rebecca Hall.
Iron Man 3 opens May 3rd, watch the trailer below.
FYI: Including the bonus pre-credits scene in The Incredible Hulk, this will be Downey’s fifth portrayal of Tony Stark/Iron Man.
Here is the first trailer for director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 with a more subdued Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) following the events of The Avengers.
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
The film stars also stars Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale.
Iron Man 3 opens on May 3rd, 2013.
He gave us Borat, Ali G, and Brüno – now we get The Dictator. Sacha Baron Cohen stars as a Middle Eastern dictoator who gets sent to the United States, it tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Megan Fox, John C. Reilly, Ben Kingsley, Anna Faris, B.J. Novak, Aasif Mandvi, and Jason Mantzouakas also star.
I didn’t find it all too funny, but I may come round. Cohen tends to get into a role 100% and give it his all which makes it great. I’m not a fan of timey jokes (there’s a Kardashian joke in here), but it will work in a movie like this that won’t necessarily stand the test of time itself.
Watch the first trailer below, Directed by Larry Charles (Borat), The Dictator opens May 11, 2012.
Here is a short video of Martin Scorsese talking about his upcoming film Hugo. The behind-the-scenes look at the 3D film does a good job at growing my interest, after the first trailer I was still on the fence.
The cast includes Chloe Grace Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Richard Griffiths, Frances de la Tour, Emily Mortimer and Michael Stuhlbarg.
Hugo tells the story of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. With the help of an eccentric girl, he searches for the answer to a mystery linking the father he recently lost, the ill-tempered toy shop owner living below him and a heart shaped lock, seemingly without a key. Based on Brian Selznick’s award winning and imaginative New York Timesbestseller, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” this magical tale is Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.
The film opens up on November 23rd 2011, check out the video below:
Martin Scorsese‘s 3D film Hugo has a trailer for your viewing pleasure below, it’s something very different from the legendary director and will be interesting to see how it looks on the big screen. The trailer to be honest I felt was a little erratic, it’s all over the place as you will see. It was nice to see the great cast in action, the cast includes Chloe Grace Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Richard Griffiths, Frances de la Tour, Emily Mortimer and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Tomorrow is the premiere of the Prince of Persia film and to say I have been torn would be an understatement. Hollywood is notorious for taking some of the most beloved video games and transforming them into steaming piles of cinematic rubbish. Super Mario Bros. had a humanoid Bowser, Mortal Kombat Annihilation utilized claymation, and House of the Dead was directed by Uwe Boll; just to name a few of the blunders. In the end, despite this track record of failure, I have decided that I will watch Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and it is for these following reasons. (more…)

**This is a SPOILER FREE Review**
It’s safe to say that the partnership between DiCaprio and Scorsese has been a productive one for the famed director – Gangs of New York got 10 Oscar nominations, The Aviator got 11 nods (and 5 wins), and The Departed got 5 nominations and won 4, including Best Picture and Marty’s long-coveted Best Director Oscar [video]. So when it was told that the team was going at it again for Shutter Island, this fan was going to be first in line. Did it live up to my own hype? It sounded like perfect thriller material, straight out of the third act of Scorsese’s Cape Fear remake, and an ideal fit for the legendary filmmaker. I am glad to say I was first in line, last to leave and very satisfied.
So for the past few months I have been rolling my eyes at this talk about the greatest action movie ever to be created, written, and directed by Sylvester Stallone, but it turns out…this thing is real. The Expendables. Okay I guess we all knew it was a few weeks back but I was too lazy to post anything.
Today comes this following news: Mickey Rourke! The recently resuscitated actor, riding THE WRESTLER (Mayors top pick for 2008? Find out soon), has joined Sly’s flick as “an unscrupulous arms dealer who becomes the go-to guy for a group of mercenaries planning to topple a South American dictator.”
The project already has Stallone Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Forest Whitaker, Robert Knepper, Juliana Paes, and possibly Sir Ben Kingsley. Plus a lead female role remains as yet unfilled.
Stallone brought Rourke on board his 2000 remake of GET CARTER, and Rourke just worked with Statham on the remake of the French thriller 13 TZAMETI. I heard Sandra Bullock turned down a role which would have been some Demolition Man reunion, but I guess shes too busy with better things…Jean-Claude Van Damme reportedly passed on the project too, for JCVD he can be forgiven. Release Date: TBA.
