Since Captain America: The Winter Soldier went into production (if not before), we’re heard about how it was going to be more than superhero movie and be something more akin to the political thrillers of the 1970s, but so far the trailers have emphasized the action and adventure. Hey, don’t get us wrong, we love that $#!%, but what about that political stuff we were promised? Well, maybe this is where it starts. (more…)
If you’re tired of watching all the trailers for video games that look like movies from this years E3, sit back and relax with a movie that looks like a video game. Neill Blomkamp‘s (District 9) has a new sci-fi flick called Elysium on the way if you haven’t heard, starting Matt Damon as a member of the great unwashed that are left earthside while the ultra rich and clean, like Jodie Foster, live on the space station from 2001: A Space Odyssey. By the looks of the TV spot Damon plans on pwning those space newbs.

“Iron What?” Now that Iron Man 3 has gobbled up all your allowance money for the month, let’s look forward to June 14 with another TV spot for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel.
In case you’ve forgotten, the film was produced by Dark Knight auteur Christopher Nolan, and written by David S. Goyer. Starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Pa and Ma Kent, Man of Steel retells and updates the origins of the Last Son of Krypton, how he came to Earth and how he embraced his destiny as the world’s greatest hero. It comes out June 14th in the theaters everywhere.
Here’s the action-packed new TV spot.

Is it June 14th yet? With Iron Man 3 opening wide tonight, it seems that all eyes are now on the next big superhero effort, Man of Steel. The below TV spot features, by my calculation, about 85 to 90 per cent new footage, include a shot of Superman (Henry Cavill) looking pissed, or constipated, or something… But hey, this film just keeps looking better and better. Fingers crossed it doesn’t turn into a world-crushing disappointment.

Does it feel as if there’s been an explosion of Star Trek Into Darkness promotional material? It was quiet for so long with only a teaser or maybe an international trailer, and now, BOOM! There’s clips, viral videos, featurettes; you name it there’s one promoting Into Darkness. Today’s latest is another of the “Disruption” viral videos from John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) in where he examines communications officer, Lt. Uhura (Zoe Saldana). And more importantly, the video provides our very first look at the new design of the Klingons,

If The Avengers was the fun, action-packed, roller coaster of a summer blockbuster, then The Dark Knight Rises will be its gritty, still action-packed, yet dark and intense opposite. The two films are the ying and the yang of super hero movies, and as much fun as I had with The Avengers I cannot wait to get all dark and moody with The Dark Knight Rises.
Opening July 20th, Dark Knight Rises will be the grand climax of the summer movies, so let’s continue with its promotional foreplay. Today the official website launched. You can check it out at TheDarkKnightRises.com, and you really should because it’s full of videos, images, wallpapers and tons of info about the flick.
But if you want some new video right now, then watch this TV spot. It feature some new footage of the feline fatale, Catwoman, and I know you can’t say no to her.
I’m telling ya, Anne Hatheway seems just purrrr-fect for the role! And I’d like to note it took me this long to make that lame joke. Do you think her Catwoman is gonna be a highlight of the movie?

Me-ow. We don’t have much longer to wait before we get see Anne Hathaway slink across screen as the ultimate feline fatale, Catwoman. Though, if you’ll remember, when we first saw her costume we weren’t wowed, particular due to its lack cat. Since then we’ve been shown those goggles flip up to become cat ears giving her at least a touch of feline. Hathaway got chills when she first saw the costume, and as she’s told Empire in their recent Dark Knight Rises article, “I was so happy they had such a clever solution to a really iconic but sometimes unnecessary part of the costume.“ It’s only unnecessary if you don’t want people calling you Catwoman, then again, the costumed vigilante has always been a tough sell for the Nolanverse, as Christopher Nolan explains,
Catwoman is a very iconic figure in the Batman pantheon. I was nervous about how she would fit into our world. But Jonah was very much convinced that there would be a great way to do it and eventually turned me around. Once I got my head around the idea of looking at that character through the prism of our films, saying, ‘Who could that person be in real-life?’ we figured it out. She’s a bit of a con-woman, something of a grifter. A hard-edged kind of criminal.
Hathaway adds how she approached Catwoman,
The thing I liked about about playing Selina was that it isn’t confidence for the sake of ‘girl power’ it is confidence for the sake of survival.
Everthing about Selina has to be smooth. Except for her eyes. I wanted to find a way of talking where it wasn’t as on the nose as a purr, but where you have to lean in a bit to hear her. So in a way you’re concentrating so hard on what she’s saying that you find yourself trapped at the moment you’re talking to her.
What do you guys think? Will Hathaway blow us her away with her Catwoman?

After the jump, we’ve got the first TV spot for Len Wiseman‘s Total Recall reboot. While it doesn’t have any new footage it still makes this movie look a lot better than I expected it would be. Yes, still holding out for a tri-boobed hooker, but even if that doesn’t make it into this new non-Mars based version of Philip K. Dick‘s “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale,” it still looks like it might be a fun little flick. It Stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and opens on August 3rd. (more…)
A new TV spot for Disney-Pixar‘s upcoming animated film, Brave, has surfaced. It alludes to some new things that weren’t shared with us in the official trailer, giving us a pretty good idea what to expect in theaters. And I enjoy the accents.
Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall. Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
The official synopsis along with this new TV spot makes the plot fairly predictable… Even so, I have high hopes for this Pixar production. It’ll be released on June 22 (yes, it’s a Monday).
What do you guys think? Does this seem to be on par with the quality of movies we’ve come to expect from Pixar?
