As the year ends, the time has come for a Trailer-pocalypse, meaning that were in a time of tremendous trailer releases in order to get us excited about big-budget studio offerings next summer. Next up is Gareth Edwards‘ attempt to Americanize Godzilla, and producing partners Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are saying that we’ll all get our first look at the trailer soon. As in tomorrow! Like around 1 pm on the east coast, 10 am on the west. Can’t wait that long for something Godzilla-ish? That’s fine, the Powers that Be have thought of that too. (more…)
How can you tell the difference between a Michael Bay movie and a Paul W.S. Anderson movie? The minute of destruction featured in the second half of the trailer would take up all two minutes if this were a Michael Bay joint! But since this is Anderson, it meanders from being a rip-off of Gladiator, to a rip-off of 300, then segues to ripping off Dante’s Peak before capping things off with a healthy “homage” to Roland Emmerich’s 2012. That’s right disaster gore fans, the latest trailer for Pompeii- excuse me, I mean, Pompeii 3-D was released today. Behold the doom of the angriest volcano of the ancient world below: (more…)
When you think of Tarzan, you naturally think of aliens, right? No… you don’t? “There ain’t no martians in Tarzan” you say? Well you’re right, I checked. Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic tale of a boy raised by apes never featured any other worldly elements – well other than the fact that Tarzan was always mysteriously clean shaven. You’d think living in the jungle he’d have some big ol’ “Duck Dynasty” style beard. But I digress…
So if monsters from outer space are absent from Tarzan, then why the fuck is this upcoming CGI project featuring alien tech as its big plot twist? Check out the trailer below and be baffled just like the rest of us.
Just announced on BBC’s Facebook page is the news we’ll finally get our trailer for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor” this Saturday, November 9th! Other than what was screened at Comic Con and leaked photos of on location filming, we’ve seen nothing from the anniversary special. A few weeks ago a super nifty 50 years of Doctor Who trailer was released, and while chocked full of winks and nods to the series’ history, it revealed nothing about what we can expect from “The Day of the Doctor”. (more…)
It was a pretty big day for superhero movie trailers, and considering that 2014 looks to be a pretty big year for superhero movies it should come as no surprise that those trailers are coming at us pretty fast now; last week we got Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and today we got X-Men: Days of Future Past. But the question now is where’s the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Well, we got some news today to suggest it’s coming, we just have to wait a little over a month now till we [finally] get to see it. (more…)
You know you want to click play below.
Premiering online well before its theatrical bow with Thor: The Dark World, here’s your chance to see Falcon fly, helecarriers take off, and Cap and Black Widow flirt(?). With the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we also get a sense of the film’s themes, like Captain America’s struggles with the post-War on Terror philosophy of protection, a lot of Robert Redford in his mysterious role as a S.H.I.E.L.D. big wig, but what we don’t get is a lot of the titular adversary. I guess they’re going to save some Winter Soldier for trailer number two.
Anyway, enough about what you can see. Time for you to see it…
In case you’ve forgotten, the second part of The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, comes out this Christmas. But if you did forget, no problem, that’s why studio marketing was invented. Below, is the third TV spot of the latest Hobbit movie… (more…)
It’s more fun and dismemberment with Mexico’s most-feared ex-Federale, Machete in Machete Kills, the follow-up to the grindhouse-esque tribute film by Robert Rodriguez, which is in theaters on October 11. To get you warmed up for the film, a new red band trailer has just been posted to the internet, and IGN is bringing it you, via us.
So what wonders does it contain? Well, there’s some prime slices of ham courtesy of Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson for one, at least two kills by chopper blade, as well as some, uh, high-caliber gun work courtesy of Sofia Vergara.
But why take my word for it, roll the trailer below to take a look:
Machete Kills, starring Danny Trejo and veritable ton of the hottest women in Hollywood, is out on October 11th.
First, a disclaimer: any reference to director Paul Anderson doesn’t mean Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood and The Master director Paul Thomas Anderson. It means Paul W.S. Anderson, the director of Mortal Kombat, Alien Vs Predator and the Resident Evil movies.
Paul W.S. Anderson’s next, uh, masterpiece is the upcoming Pompeii, the story of – spoiler alert – the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius that killed the entire population of the city of Pompeii in 79 AD. Shot predominately in Toronto, Canada (?), the film is basically Titanic in Ancient Rome with a scrappy young slave-turned-gladiator named Milo (Kit Harington ) who falls for the upper class cutie Cassia (Emily Browning). And that’s why you’ve got to love Paul W.S. Anderson, he can take two completely random things – like Titanic and Gladiator - and turn it into another piece of crap. Probably.
Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here’s the trailer for Pompeii.
In addition, Entertainment Weekly interviewed Harrington about the film, including the first instance we meet his character:
“This is the first scene you see me in. It’s set in London, in fact, and it’s a scene where my character is a gladiator fighting in an arena. That’s his gladiator look. It’s a great little fight against three masked gladiators and sets up who he is and where he’s going. You see me display my skills quite early on.”
But wait, don’t cry “derivative” too soon, Harrington talks about his character’s motivation in more detail:
“Milo is a Celt who is enslaved when he is a child and his family is killed. There’s a time cut that happens in the movie where you see me go from a child to a man, and you realize he’s been a gladiator for a long time. Eventually he’s taken to Pompeii… There are some beautiful scenes in there.
He’s a good swordsman and good fighter, and quite brooding, which is all of what Jon Snow is, and he doesn’t really speak a hell of a lot, even though I’ve got a lot of screen time. He kind of keeps himself to himself.
He’s an angry, angry man who doesn’t care what he does. For a large part of the film, he’s driven by pure rage.”
I think there’s going to be a lot of angry men when Pompeii comes out February 21st, 2014.

It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights. It’s time to press play on the first teaser trailer for the sequel to The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted. Coming from the same creative team (sans Jason Segel), the sequel will continue the big screen adventures of Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozie and the rest of the gang as they find themselves on a European adventure. In the trailer you’ll see scenes of new stars Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais hamming it up, and you will confirm once and for all if Scooter does indeed have moves like Jagger. But let’s put aside the preamble and get to the trailer:
Plot Synopsis – Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon. Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Bobin co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John G. Scotti. Featuring music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, “Muppets Most Wanted” hits the big screen March 21, 2014.
