Trailer for A MOST WANTED MAN Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman

Sunday, April 13th, 2014


Here is the first trailer for director Anton Corbijn’s (The American) latest spy thriller A Most Wanted Man.  The movie is based on the John le Carre (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) novel of the same name and stars the great Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final roles.

Hoffman plays a German intelligence operative working to track down terrorists abroad.  The movie looks to be exactly like what one of the critics quotes says, a “slow burn”.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing when you have a great cast and script to back up a story that would otherwise be left something to read on a long flight.

The movie also stars Robin Wright, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, and Grigoriy Dobrygin.

A Most Wanted Man opens July 25th, read the synopsis and watch the trailer below:


Christopher Nolan Kept the Plot of INTERSTELLAR a Secret from Hans Zimmer

Friday, April 11th, 2014


It’s no secret that director Christopher Nolan only lets us know what he wants us to know while he’s making a movie.  In the case of Interstellar we still don’t know too much more than it has wormholes and a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass “the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage”.  Take that in for a moment if you have to.

Well it turns out Nolan’s go-to-composer, Hans Zimmer, didn’t even know that much before he began work on the film’s score.  Speaking with British GQ (via WDEF), Zimmer said:

“All I will say is this: before I began, last January, Chris said to me, ‘Hans, I will write one page of text for you. And you will give me just one day. Just write whatever comes to you from this one single page.  It [the page] wasn’t about the film… in a peculiar way, what Chris wrote down that day, and what he wanted from me, had more to do with my story than the plot of the movie. He knows how to get under my skin. That’s the game we play.”

That is a strange form of collaboration isn’t it?  Well if Nolan does that with him often it’s working, because Nolan’s films have had some seriously notable scores from Zimmer including Inception and The Dark Knight.  I’d love to see what was on that one page though.

Interstellar opens on November 7 and stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Bill Irwin, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, John Lithgow, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo, David Gyasi and Matt Damon.

First Trailer for DOLPHIN TALE 2 with Kris Kristofferson

Friday, April 11th, 2014


The first movie was based on actual event and made a ton of money, so what is this sequel doing you ask?  Well, the guy who directed the first movie (Charles Martin Smith, who also directed Air Bud) is back directing and took over writing details – so he must have really liked him some Dolphin Tale.  The movie also has Kris Kristofferson returning, pictured here.

The sequel sees the return of cast members Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman, Nathan Gamble, and Cozi Zuehlsdorff as they continue Winter the Dolphin’s treatment.  There’s a whole synopsis below of how this movie is a movie, so if you’re interested you should definitely read that.

With a special appearance by professional surfer Bethany Hamilton, Dolphin Tale 2 opens September 19th – watch the trailer below:


So Here’s the First Trailer for GIRL MEETS WORLD

Thursday, April 10th, 2014


Here is the first teaser trailer for the new Disney Channel series Girl Meets World from the creators and some cast behind Boy Meets World.  In the new show Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are parents to their young daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and she’s getting into all sorts of shenanigans.

From this clip alone, I’m a little weary about the tone of the show; although it’s Disney, I was hoping it would remain somewhat true to Boy Meets World.  BMW was funny, sweet, and often pretty dramatic for a kids TV show.  This looks a little too colorful and whacky for my taste, time will tell though.  Other original cast members, including William Daniels (Mr. Feeny), Corey Fogelmanis (Minkus), and Rider Strong (Shawn) are set to return from time to time.

Check out our GMW coverage here.

Girl Meets World premieres on Disney Channel this summer, watch the trailer below:


A Snazy New Trailer for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2

Thursday, April 10th, 2014


How to Train Your Dragon 2 is on a lot of people’s most-anticipated films of the summer lists I’m sure, and for good reason.  The first entry into the series was a lot of fun and it looks like the sequel is going to attempt to capture lightning in a bottle.  The sequel takes place five years after the first movie with Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless likely getting into trouble:

While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.

This trailer has a lot going on here in terms of humor and drama, those elements made the first movie great.  Are you excited yet?  The film features the voices of Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Djimon Hounsou, and Kristen Wiig.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 13th, watch the new trailer below:


Laugh it Up With this New Red-Band Trailer for 22 JUMP STREET

Thursday, April 10th, 2014


One of the best comedies of 2012 is coming back for more in what could be an even funnier outing a second time around in 22 Jump Street [21 Jump Street review].  Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller return for the sequel, along with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who have left their undercover job at high school and have gone off to infiltrate a college campus, naturally.

This trailer is very funny, there is no doubt it will be a hit but I just think I will stop watching the clips and trailers that are coming out to save some of the surprise. [Check out the first red-band here]

The movie also stars Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Peter Stormare, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.

22 Jump Street opens June 13th, watch the red-band below:


Here is the Trailer for Zach Braff’s WISH I WAS HERE or ‘The Shins’ New Music Video

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014


Director Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here has a trailer now; he co-wrote, directed, and stars in the story of Aidan Bloom (played by Braff), a struggling actor, father, and husband who is seeking purpose in life and trying to come to terms with the impending death of his father (Mandy Patinkin).

The trailer is great; unlike most trailers today this one doesn’t say too much or show too much.  It’s a montage of clips from the movie which looks like it could be a great comedy-drama for Braff again.  Did you enjoy Garden State?  You’ll probably love this.

The movie also stars Kate Hudson, Joey King, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons, Pierce Gagnon, Ashley Greene, and Donald Faison.

Wish I Was Here opens in limited release on July 18th, watch the trailer and read the full synopsis below.

Get Hungry Watching this Trailer for Jon Favreau’s CHEF

Monday, April 7th, 2014


I’m thankful that I just ate my lunch – some cold left over pizza we had for the Game of Thrones premier in case you’re wondering – so I’m set watching the trailer for Chef.  The trailer looks delicious.  Jon Favreau wrote, directed, and stars in his new film where he plays Carl Casper, a man who starts up a food truck business in the hopes of re-establishing his artistic promise after he loses his regular chef gig.  It looks like a nice movie that everyone can enjoy and actually has something to say as well.  Artistic and creative integrity are important qualities to have, even when it comes to delicious food.

The film also stars Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr.

Chef opens May 9th, watch the trailer below:


A New Trailer for BLENDED, Sorry

Friday, April 4th, 2014


I wasn’t going to post this at all, because we already had one insufferable trailer posted, but holy hell this is bad.  You know those trailers where reaction shots from clips they are showing don’t seem to fit because of different background or clothes or time of day?  This trailer has about 5 of those and a girl changing her hair and becoming hot because of it.  What a message!

The gags are awful and the plot is one big gimmick to get to Africa – this just all around blows.  Why did I expect better from these two?  They did The Wedding Singer which I enjoyed, is this the best they could do?  At least there is Terry Crews who will likely steal the movie.

Blended opens on May 23rd, watch the trailer below if you want:


A New Teaser Trailer for THE EXPENDABLES 3 Starring Kelsey Grammer and Some Other Dudes

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014


Here is a new short and to the point teaser trailer for The Expendables 3. The point is that the cast is huge!  The best part of course is that Kelsey Grammer gets a moment here to smile; I’m not having a go at the man either, I’m genuinely a big fan.  You have to admit though, who would have expected him to take part in any of these movies?

There are some explosions here and a roll call of many including Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen Powell.

The Expendables 3 opens August 15th, watch the trailer below:
