Spike Lee’s OLDBOY Still Looks Impressive

Friday, November 8th, 2013

This new trailer for Spike Lee’s Oldboy might look impressive, but I’m still curious about how Lee is going to handle the adapatation of the grapic novel and live up to Park Chan-wook’s excellent version from 2003.  How the ending going to go?  Did Lee let the studio get there way and so we won’t see his version until a director’s cut gets released?

The story goes that Josh Brolin is kidnapped for mysterious reasons, and is released twenty years later with no explanation. Once free, he goes on a mission to find his captor and take revenge.  The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Lance Reddick, Michael Imperioli, and James Ransone.

Oldboy opens on November 27th, watch the trailer below:

OLDBOY Red-Band Trailer – There’s That Hammer

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Oldboy

A couple of days ago we shared the first poster for Oldboy on our Facebook page and now the first trailer for the Spike Lee directed remake has premiered online.  Unfortunately it’s one of those trailers which appear to give away the entire film, or perhaps it’s just because we know the original film so well?  Even so, it doesn’t really leave a lot to the imagination.

There’s definitely some style on display here but it remains to be seen whether this will be a remake worthy of the original or merely another entry in the long line of Westernized remakes that fall short.

Check out the NSFW Red-Band trailer below!  Oldboy opens on October 25th.

Silent But Deadly Red-Band Trailer for SINISTER Starring Ethan Hawke

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

sinisterWell that trailer did it for me, I can’t remember another horror movie I was this excited about seeing.  Sinister looks horrific and this voiceless trailer worked for me in so many ways.  The movie takes the found footage idea and gives it a different spin which I think we can all appreciate at this point.

Sinister stars Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance and James Ransone and opens October 12th.  Watch the first trailer here and check out the new trailer below:

A true crime novelist (Ethan Hawke) struggling to find his next big story, moves his family into a house where the horrific murder of an entire family took place.  But after finding a box of home videos in which other families are also brutally murdered, his investigation leads him to a supernatural entity that may be placing his own family in harm’s way.

Trailer for Spike Lee’s RED HOOK SUMMER, Hey It’s Mookie

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

red-hook-summerIf Red Hook Summer has anything going for it, it’s that it’s set in Brooklyn which is always a great start, and that director Spike Lee reprises his role from the 1989 classic Do the Right Thing.  Besides that, I can’t say the trailer did anything for me.  I enjoyed the music and visuals, Spike Lee usually gets that right.  Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments.

Red Hook Summer opens on August 10.

Flik Royale (Jules Brown), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta comes to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters), in the housing projects of Red Hook. Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik’s summer appears to be a disaster–until he meets Chazz Morningstar (Toni Lysaith), a pretty girl who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn.

Here’s the Trailer for SINISTER Starring Ethan Hawke, But Get Your Own Change of Shorts

Monday, June 18th, 2012

sinisterDirector Scott Derrickson returns to horror with the scary looking film Sinister starring Ethan Hawke.  Hawke plays a crime novelist that moves his family into a house where the previous owners were murdered.  That part of the story was a little played in the ’80s let alone today, but it gets better.  He comes across some old home videos of families being murdered, should have got that home inspection done son.

If you’re a fan of the underappreciated Exorcism of Emily Rose then you should be interested enough to check out Sinister.  The film also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Sinister opens on August 24th.
