We have the first Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer from director Ridley Scott below, and it’s pretty great to look at. I hated Gladiator and didn’t see Kingdom of Heaven, so Scott’s great movies for me include American Gangster, Matchstick Men, Hannibal and Black Rain. I don’t think any of those films come close to the scale we have here. Watch the trailer and see for yourself.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state-of-the-art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
So much eyeliner right? Besides that it looks pretty reasonable. The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.
Exodus: Gods and Kings opens December 5, 2014. Watch the trailer below:
Here is a new trailer for director Baz Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsby, the trailer does a nice job at showcasing some fine work from DiCaprio who plays the titular character. The movie is on a grand scale this time around with some colorful visuals and rap/rock music to accompany them.
The film also stars Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Debicki. The Great Gatsby opens in 3D on May 10, 2013.
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
Here is the final trailer for director Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which has been getting a lot of attention due in part to Chastain’s performance. Chastain is all over this trailer which has some new footage and a great cover version of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters by the Scala and Kolacny Brothers children’s choir.
Zero Dark Thirty also stars Kyle Chandler, Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, Joel Edgerton and James Gandolfini.
The film opens in limited release on December 19th, then expands nationwide on January 11th.
For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.
Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) is back with Zero Dark Thirty, the movie will looks at the story behind the story of Osama bin Laden’s death on May 2, 2011 during an operation by the Navy’s SEAL Team Six. The good thing about this one is they look to be putting the focus on the team that took him down rather than the political motions that took place.
Some folks would like to throw their hands in the air because this is happening so close to election time, just wave back if you see that happening. The movie opens December 19th.
Zero Dark Thirty was written by Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) and stars Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton and Kyle Chandler.
We have the first trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, I didn’t have any hopes for this one, the book was not my cup of juice. I have to say though, this trailer makes the material look a lot more interesting than I remember. It’s a great cast with Luhrmann’s touch on the soundtrack by the sounds of it.
The film will be in 3D for some reason, but didn’t seem to have any forced “hey imagine that in 3D” moments which is a relief. Check out the trailer below.
The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. The Great Gatsby opens in 3D on December 25th.

The trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a odd one, and could have easily been turned into a horror movie, too bad. Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton are a couple who are not able to conceive. They write down their hopes and dreams for the child they’ll never have, put the writing in a box, and bury the box in their backyard. They wake up to find a kid, who calls them mom and dad. Leaves a lot of questions for sure don’t you think?
