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:
I’ve been waiting for this trailer patiently, I can breathe now. Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for writer/director Jason Reitman’s (Juno, Thank you for Smoking) new film Labor Day. The movie is based on the Joyce Maynard novel of the same name.
On a back-to-school shopping trip, Henry (Gattlin Griffith) and his mother (Kate Winslet) encounter Frank Chambers (Josh Brolin), a man both intimidating and clearly in need of help, who convinces them to take him into their home and later is revealed to be an escaped convict. The events of this long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.
The trailer does a very good job at creating a tension between the characters that you just know is going to amount to something at the end of this weekend they are having. It had a lot of positive buzz after its showing at TFF, and I’d watch anything with Kate Winslet – so it’s a done deal.
The film also stars J.K. Simmons, Clark Gregg, James Van Der Beek, and Tobey Maguire.
Labor Day opens in limited release on December 25th and expands on January 31st, watch the trailer below:
My lady and I have an understanding; I get to have a healthy obsession for Kate Winslet and she gets to go on Pinterest while I’m watching Real Time with Bill Maher. Thankfully I get to work on this here website where I can also post any and all Kate Winslet news, so here we have the first image of her upcoming film Labor Day. Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) wrote and directed the movie based on the novel Labor Day by Joyce Maynard.
Set in 1987 over the late summer holiday weekend, Labor Day opens with divorced, depressed single mom Adele clothes shopping with her 13-year-old son, Henry. They encounter a large, fearsome man — who also happens to be bleeding badly. He asks for a ride, and against all judgment, they give him one. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story and their options become more and more limited.
It will be interesting to see how Reitman handles a character drama/thriller like this, could be a refreshing turn for the great director. The film will also involves flashback and flashforwards, with Tobey Maguire playing the grown-up version of the young boy. The film also stars Gattlin Griffith, J.K. Simmons, Clark Gregg, and James Van Der Beek.
Labor Day opens in limited release on December 25th before expanding wide on January 31st.
FYI: My favorite Winslet roles are Little Children, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Revolutionary Road, and Contagion.

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.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt shows no sign of slowing down after a stellar 2012, he will be joining the Sin City sequel A Dame To Kill For. According to Empire, he’s got a lead role in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s graphic novel sequel to the amazing Sin City. He will play Johnny, an ultra-smooth character that didn’t appear in the novels, but was created specifically for the film.
JGL said in a press release “I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality.” Gordon-Levitt says in a statement. “Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr Rodriguez.”
The cast for the film which is now shooting includes Jessica Alba, Jamie Chung, Alexa Vega, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Dennis Haysbert and Bruce Willis.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). The film will be released on October 4, 2013.
Here is a great new trailer for director Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad, the movie was delayed and some re-shoots were done but that doesn’t seem to have hindered the quality, this movie looks great. Sean Penn returns to chew every scene he’s in which is nice, and Ryan Gosling is playing Mr. Cool which isn’t a surprise.
The film also stars Nick Nolte, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, and Giovanni Ribisi.
Gangster Squad opens on January 11th, watch the trailer below:
Here is the first trailer for Ruben Fleischer‘s (Zombieland) Gangster Squad starring everyone cool in Hollywood. The trailer is awesome, but that’s easy for me to say because I love watching anything that takes us back to the 1940s. Sean Penn is gangster Mickey Cohen, Josh Brolin is the head of the LA task force trying to bring him down.
The film stars Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, and Giovanni Ribisi. Gangster Squad opens this year.
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “The Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
Here is the new and improved trailer for Men in Black 3 with some more of Josh Brolin‘s great Tommy Lee Jones impression. If you were hip to MIB in the 90′s then you know that gadgets and aliens are expected along with Will Smith yelling a lot. They are going back to the 60′s in this one; maybe they will run into Austin Powers right? Anyone?
Hit the jump to check out the trailer, Men in Black 3 opens in 3D on May 25th.
Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
Men In Black 3 finally got through a dreadful production (they took time off to fix the story) and there’s a trailer to prove it. The trailer recaptures what worked in the first film and introduces the world to Josh Brolin’s Tommy Lee Jones impression, spot on.
The film was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and stars Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Rip Torn, Johnny Knoxville, and Jemaine Clement.
