I’ve always thought it says a lot when a movie uses a release date as a selling point, it says it’s not got much going for it. So here we have new trailer for Mark Waters’ Vampire Academy, it has a bit of additional footage not seen in the previously released trailer [check out my roundup].
The movie based on the Richelle Mead novels and follows Rose Hathaway, a bodyguard for her best friend and Moroi vampire princess, Lissa. They attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi (mortal, peaceful Vampires) and Dhampirs (half-vampire/half-human guardians). We get forbidden romances and awkward social situations; see – old hat.
Vampire Academy opens February 14, 2014, that’s Valentine’s Day y’all! OMG hearts and love and stuff or whatever. Watch the trailer below:
A new trailer was unveiled today for director Peter Jackson The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, you can watch it below in all its 3-minute glory. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in 2D, 3D, and HFR 3D on December 13th.
The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
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:
Here is another fantastic trailer [here is the first crazy one] for director Martin Scorsese‘s new film The Wolf of Wall Street which after some possible release date change talk will thankfully be opening this Christmas. The final run-time is 165 minutes, which isn’t a bad thing with Martin Scorsese and Leo working together on a dark comedy. Jonah Hill and teeth are looking great too.
Based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, the film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.
The film also stars Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, and Rob Reiner.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens on December 25th, watch the trailer below:
HBO’s upcoming “anthology drama series” True Detective is looking great and should take us into Game of Thrones hype just perfectly next year. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey star as two detectives whose lives collide and interweave during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. It’s going to be dark and crazy, that’s how I like my TV.
True Detective premieres Sunday, January 12th and consists of eight episodes.
In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.
Last week we showed you some images from DreamWorks Animation new film Mr. Peabody & Sherman directed Rob Minkoff‘s (The Lion King), now we have a trailer. You may remember the duo from the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show,
The film features the voices of Ty Burrell as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles as his adopted son Sherman. With additional voices of Stephen Colbert, Ariel Winter, Leslie Mann, Stanley Tucci, Allison Janney, Patrick Warburton, and Mel Brooks.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman opens on March 7, 2014, read the synopsis and watch the trailer below:
The long awaited trailer for the second Captain America film (who thought we’d be saying that 5 year ago?) has arrived and it looks…pretty good. I like that they’re showing Robert Redford off front and center, as they should. I’m also thankful they don’t explain anything about the Winter Soldier, at least not in this trailer. I suppose they won’t be able to resist spoiling that bit once the new year rolls around.
Check it out for yourself after the jump but personally I’m feeling excited, it looks to be keeping things a little more grounded this time around. Well…as grounded as a super soldier out of time who jumps out of planes without parachutes can be grounded.
Paramount has released two trailers for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The Channel 4 Team, Ron (Will Ferrell), Brian (Paul Rudd), Champ (David Kochner), and Brick (Steve Carell) are all back and providing what looks like a lot of laughs.

The film also stars Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford. Look for 53 cameos too.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20th, watch both new trailer below:
I don’t want to get my penis caught in an ATM when I’m 86 years old. This movie is almost educational no? Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and his eight-year-old grandson Billy (Jackson Nicoll) are on the road and making a scene for unexpected people who later signed a contract saying they can’t sue when they look surprised at an old man smashing through a glass windows. I love Hollywood.
Bad Grandpa opens this Friday, October 25th, watch the trailer below:
86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera. Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens. Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.
Here’s the 50th anniversary Doctor Who trailer that shows every Doctor (even from before you were born). It’s epic some might say, if that’s not an overused word yet. It’s exciting and does everything it should.
