Sci-fi, The Matrix, Groundhog's Day oh my! This is the follow-up to Duncan Jones tragically under the radar film Moon and it looks equally awesome. I'm a bit bias as I read and loved an early copy of the script but the trailer does nothing to dim said excitement, even with the inclusion of Jake Gyllenhaal. Personally I was hoping for a bit of a Sam Rockwell/Duncan Jones love affair a la Scorcese/DiCaprio but what can you do.
Not too shabby but at this point I'm starting to wonder if Kurtzman and Orci actually write lens flares in to their scripts. Either way this looks pretty fun and even though Iron Man 2 was borderline offensive it's pretty clear Favreau knows how to make a good film, remember he didn't direct Couples Retreat. Of course it's a special kind of bonus whenever you get to see "Someone pissed in my Fruit Loops" Harrison Ford, even if he doesn't have the same Inspector Gadget surgery that Daniel Craig did.
My one fear from this trailer is Hollywood decides to remake all the old Clint Eastwood movies with Daniel Craig. Please don't do that.
I'll take painfully generic and lame for a thousand please Alex. Can someone explain the Ryan Reynolds phenomenon for me? I have enough trouble trying to figure out whether or not he is Dane Cook to really understand the whole mess. All I can tell is he's a terrible actor that keeps getting somewhat desireable roles. Isn't he in some other comic book movie too, Wolverine or something? I'd look it up but then I would be caring. To be fair it's not all bad news though as the trailer also has purple people, giant forehead monsters, and a hotter than normal brunette Blake Lively. Fine, I'll see it.
I had to post the lengthy synopsis here just because it's so awesome. I recently read an early version of this script and knowing who was cast in what roles, I loved it. This trailer has done nothing to sway said love, in fact it looks even better than I thought, granted that can be attributed to my stale imagination, but still, can't be a bad thing. I guess I should give you a heads up that this is the red band trailer and Danny McBride is in the film so you do the math.
Also never do the triangle face again.
Not really much to say here, new Winnie The Pooh movie by Disney that looks like old Winnie The Pooh. Thank you sir may I have another. Also Craig Ferguson as Owl, good times.
So this looks good, which is quite a relief considering how scary the idea of remaking True Grit is on paper. Thankfully we have the brothers Coen behind the camera so it really wasn't all that scary in the first place. As for the trailer it's pretty clear that the Dude, or El Duderino, knows how to rock an eye patch. I'd also like to give a special shoutout to what looks to be an amazing sideburns/mustache combo for Matt Damon.
The jokes sort of write themselves with this one. Marky Mark was literally born to play this part, and I never thought I'd say that about anything that doesn't involve Dirk Diggler. Bale looks certifiably loony in his bits here as Dicky Eklund which should be a nice changeup from his usual role as the generic male lead post Batman Begins. For all intensive purposes this is director Russell's follow-up to 2004's I Heart Huckabees and while the mood will certainly be different, let's hope the end result of a quality film isn't. From the looks of things that shouldn't be a worry.
Is it just me or does this look incredibly awesome? Our love for all things Harry Callahan is well documented but trying to put that aside this still looks really legit, and looks like another solid role for Damon. The film was written by Peter Morgan who has a history of high quality work so things are looking good, although the October date with an Eastwood/Damon pairing seems a little hesitant.
The movie is supposed to be mainly a one man show, so it looks like the teaser is throwing out the first five minutes and set up while relying on Boyle's reputation. The story is an interesting one, although I'm still concerned about flashback heavy crutches in an effort to keep the audience interested. Boyle used two cinematographers for the film, Anthony Dod Mantle and Enrique Chediak, so at the very least there will be something pretty to focus on if the story gets too drawn out. What are your thoughts on 127 Hours?
For a movie that has a lot of ballerina dancing it looks pretty darn creepy, in the best way possible. The cast and director make it an automatic for me, and the fact that it looks extremely intense certainly doesn't hurt it any. What are your thoughts on Black Swan?
