Back in 2007, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Jason Stone made a short film called Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse. Aside from a short trailer the film wasn’t seen by the public, but it did garner enough attention to get the full length feature film treatment.
It took a while to get off the ground but here it is…This Is The End, a film which features just about every modern day comedy star…as themselves. You’ve got Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, Mindy Kaling, Martin Starr, Aziz Ansari…I could go on and on.
Hit the jump for the red-band trailer. It’s bloody and insane and potentially awesome.
Be advised that this is NSFW due to swearing and gore. Plus I think I even saw a dinosaur in there so…watch out.
Jay Baruchel Gives GOON 2 Update; Will Co-Write with Jesse Chabot and Michael Dowse Will Return to Direct; Evan Goldberg Will Produce
Goon was a great sports movie with a lot of laughs and nice heart too [my review]. So it’s great to hear that we will have a sequel soon (I don’t say that often); Jay Baruchel took to the Twitterverse to share the news, in summary: Baruchel will write the script with Jesse Chabot, Michael Dowse will also return to direct the sequel; Evan Goldberg, who co-wrote the original, will return as a producer.
Jay Baruchel @BaruchelNDG
I’d like to say thank you to all of you for all the GOON 2 love. You guys are wicked.
Though I do feel the need to clarify something from the last article I posted, GOON 2 will be written by @jessechabot and myself.
Evan Goldberg will be involved as a producer and we will all be working our asses off to make as awesome a flick as possible.
Please know this: GOON is pretty close to sacred for all of
us involved and we would only be entertaining the idea of continuing the saga if we were all equally convinced that Doug, Laflamme, Stevesy, the Russians, Rolie, Ogilvy Belchy and Eva were only getting started
We will give them and you guys the epic, violent, heartfelt awesomeness that is not just deserved but required. HIGH. LAND. ERS.
Sorry for the tweet carpet bombing, just wanted to provide context and give appropriate respect to my boy @jessechabot
And YES @mdowse is directing the motherfucker! #gaypornhard
I still have to read the plot summary after watching each new trailer [teaser 1, trailers] for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. These trailers are busy to say the least, the movie itself looks great and as I’ve mentioned before Pattinson shines here and should get noticed for it.
Cosmopolis opens in limited release August 17th.
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson)–a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager–as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber, while remotely wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer’s luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, aparade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer’s perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
Last month all we had on David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis was this teaser trailer, it was short and did a good job at Robert Pattinson doesn’t have to sparkle all the time. He is going to surprise a lot of people here and there is nothing wrong with that. Now we have two trailers that show off that Cronenberg touch we have come to love so much.
Riding across Manhattan in a stretch limo in order to get a haircut, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager’s day devolves into a odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart.
Here is a new trailer for Goon [past trailers here and here], which stars Seann William Scott, Liev Shreiber and Jay Baruchel. I enjoy most hockey movies, this one looks like a winner so far, and that might have to do with the movie having been written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg (Superbad).
The trailer is less offensive as it lacks the swearing and such, but it’s just as hard hitting. The fighting scenes look really well done, not a lot of close up shaky cam going on here.
Doug Glatt, a slacker who discovers he has a talent for brawling is approached by a minor league hockey coach and invited to join the team as the “muscle.” Despite the fact that Glatt can’t skate his best friend, Pat, convinces him to give it a shot, and Glatt becomes a hero to the team and their fans, until the league’s reigning goon becomes threatened by Glatt’s success and decides to even the score.
Alliance Films has released a new trailer for Goon [past trailer here], which stars Seann William Scott, Liev Shreiber and Jay Baruchel. Michael Dowse directs the story of a small town bouncer who after physically defending his best friend at a hockey game, is recruited to play the enforcer for a minor league team, despite initial misgivings. I like a good hockey movie, this looks to be something worth keeping an eye on. It’s like what would have happened if the first 5 minutes of Happy Gilmore got a feature film [scene].
Full synopsis and trailer below:
We have the first movie trailer for Goon starring Seann William Scott, Liev Shreiber and Jay Baruchel. I enjoy hockey movies and tend to enjoy them even more with Coach Bombay, but this will have to do. It looks like a comedy brawler in the vein of Slap Shot and the beginning 10 minutes of Happy Gilmore. It’s nice to see Shreiber in a comedic role for a change as well as Scott doing what he does best, play the sympathetic goof off. I look forward to this one.
Labelled an outcast by his brainy family, a bouncer overcomes long odds to lead a team of under performing misfits to semi-pro hockey glory, beating the crap out of everything that stands in his way.
