Welcome to the age of teasing the teasing of the teasing of the trailer that will tease you.
Hollywood’s marketing geniuses are poking the bear with this trend. It’s pretty devious in fact. They know that sites like NerdBastards are always on the prowl for anything to keep the flow of information rolling. Now the powers that be in Hollywood can get four or five posts on various sites for just one trailer.
Their pulling a “Hanzel and Gretel” on us, leaving a trail of crumbs, right into the warming oven.
Wow, where did that come from?
So according to Chris Hemsworth, “The wait is almost over”—and he’s not talking about The Avengers, he’s introducing a sneak peek at the new trailer for his other big film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
Next Monday, the latest trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman will debut during NBC’sThe Voice. In Universal’s adaptation of the fairytale, Kristen Stewart plays Snow White and Oscar-winner Charlize Theron stars as the Evil Queen.
Snow White and the Huntsman is an action-adventure that turns the classic on its head. Instead of waiting for a Prince (Sam Claflin) to save the day, Snow White takes matters into her own hands. She trains with the Huntsman and is prepared to go to war with her nemesis.
The film definitely has a darker tone than its competitor Mirror Mirror which hits theaters March 30. There’s less comedy and more Chris Hemsworth wielding an ax. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hammer, a bat or a sword; he’s pretty good at throwing things.
Snow White and the Huntsman opens in theaters June 1.
Well its taking Hollywood by storm… No, not Avatar..Stuart Townsend, previously of Queen of the Damned and currently of well…Nothing. THR reports:
Stuart Townsend has departed Marvel Comics’ movie adaptation of “Thor” because of creative differences, according to sources close to the production.
Townsend had been cast as Fandral, an ally of Norse god Thor. He was replaced by Joshua Dallas, according to the two sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.
Irish actor Townsend, 37, best known as the boyfriend of Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, starred in “Queen of the Damned.” He had been cast as Aragorn in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy but was replaced at the last minute by Viggo Mortensen.
So this douche bag was supposed to be in LOTR?? Squandering his career perhaps? Seems to me like EVERYWHERE he goes he drags a bit of negativity with him. Starting back when he insulted his film Queen of the Damned before it was even released and thus creating a PR shit storm for the studio.
You can currently find Townsend with his nails dug firmly into Charlize Theron.
Author of No Country For Old Men is at it again. This is The 2nd Trailer for Viggo Mortenson’s “The Road”, less than a month before release. This movie looks, Oscar caliber, superbly acted, and badass all rolled into one. Check it out, it will soon be coming to theaters near me…And you.
Columbia has hired scribes Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara to pen the sequel to the Will Smith superhero movie, which grossed $624 million worldwide last year. The original producing team is expected to return. (more…)
