Comic-Con: Red Band Trailer for Frank Miller’s SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

Monday, July 28th, 2014


The trailer below was previously shown at the Hall H panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Dimension Films has now released the extended Red Band trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

I have just enough enthusiasm for this movie to get me to go see it; I loved the first one but feel they waited far too long to bring the gang back and from what I’m seeing, they offer little reward for the wait other than the same old. Still, it looks great and should be fun; I wonder though how many people will actually go see it and fear this could be a bomb waiting to happen. I hope I’m wrong.

Watch it below:

So it’s safe to say tSin City: A Dame to Kill For will actually happen as we have some new images here as proof.  We showed you the trailer here and some first images here, but after years of waiting I still wasn’t 100% sure it was real.

Josh Brolin stars as the “physically-altered” Dwight (Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  The film also stars the great Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, Powers Boothe, Christopher Lloyd, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd, check out the images below:

Here is the anticipated first trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  Josh Brolin stars as the “physically-altered” Dwight (Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.  He says the title in the movie!  It’s good to see Mickey Rourke on the screen again; he owned this role back in 2005 and seems to be back at home here.

Watch these Oscar Roundtables

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014


My favorite part of the Oscar award season is all the roundtables with the nominees.  Thanks to THR you can watch Jared Leto talk about waxing his legs, Julia Roberts discuss the scariest on-set moments and Alfonso Cuaron elaborate on dropping out of film school.

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:


Trailer for Jason Reitman’s LABOR DAY Starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin

Thursday, October 31st, 2013


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:


First LABOR DAY Image or Any Excuse To Talk About Kate Winslet

Thursday, August 8th, 2013


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.

OLDBOY Red-Band Trailer – There’s That Hammer

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013


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.

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.
