Yeah, I made that title more awkward than was needed. Anyway, here’s the trailer for The Wolverine. A sequel to a film that probably shouldn’t have been made. My views on X-Men Origins: Wolverine are pretty much that I can watch it but it’s really weak and messy. It’s not X-Men 3 bad, it’s just normal bad. But hey, at least Ryan Reynolds was cool for the 30 seconds he was in it, right? Anyway, click the link for the trailer for a film that is already looking like an improvement.
Well, I’m liking what I see. No knee-jerking anti remake hate from me here. This looks legit. Would be cool if after Cabin In The Woods took apart horror last year and exposed how easy it can be that we get one of the original “cabin in the woods” horror films coming back to rebuild the genre. Personally, I think the horror genre is broken to an incredible degree now. Maybe I’ll write an piece one day about why I feel that. Anyway, click the link for the red band trailer of Evil Dead.
Well That Sure Is The Giant Robots Vs Giant Monsters Action I Was Promised. Pacific Rim Trailer In Here!!!
So for some time Guillermo Del Toro has been promising the world some giant fecking robot action. After At The Mountains Of Madness was cancelled he set about making this giant robot movie and he’s only gone and done it. Pacific Rim looks like the movie I’ve been wanting to see produced with Hollywood sized budgets ever since I watched Godzilla and Robot Jox style films as a kid. I’d imagine people a little younger than me would likely parallel the feeling they get from this to Power Rangers. Pacific Rim is about giant robots fighting monsters from beneath the sea and it looks pretty damn spectacular. It does make me ask one question though. Isn’t it time that our films started to scale down somewhat? We are really losing character and story behind huge effects and high concept scenarios. That said, giant robots kick all kinds of arse. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Well as Winter approaches we start heading into that time of year we all can’t wait to experience. It’s the summer movie trailers preview season!!!! Yes, every year at this time the studios start to remember that they have another season of summer blockbusters to force into our collective eye holes next year and so they start pumping out the film trailers like nobodies business. Today we have a trailer for the Zach Snyder directed and, more importantly for the marketing department, Christopher Nolan produced Man Of Steel. Because not having the word “Batman” in the title of the last two films worked out so well some clever sod in marketing decided that Superman can’t have his name on the title of his new film either. So, click the link for the trailer. It looks quite good.
I wasn’t sure if I should be posting this trailer for the long in production Angry Video Game Nerd Movie here or on my Games Dump side-blog. By the way, did you know I have a second blog called The Games Dump? Probably not cos it’s only had like 30 views and I update it once a month. Anyway, back in 2010 the original Youtube video game critic James Rolfe, or The Angry Video Game/Nintendo Nerd to his fans announced that he had plans to make a movie based around his character. Well, today is the day we finally see that that movie is indeed a thing that is happening. You can watch the trailer after the link below.
I love The Evil Dead, even wrote a big love up of a review for it about a year ago on here just to prove how much I enjoy that film. But I am under no illusion that it is a film that is beyond being remade. The film was never perfect by anyone’s standards. Raimi has never felt that way either. And so for a few years now he’s been shopping about the idea of a remake, and here’s the trailer for it. I think this trailer looks superb. They’ve gone down a much darker route with the tone and even approached the story from a new angle. In it the lead character Mia (Jane Levy), who stands in for Ash, is a drug addict who’s been taken away to a cabin in the woods by friends to help her go cold turkey. And then they find the book of the dead and evil starts to happen. I’m hoping the film plays with the idea that she may be hallucinating the whole thing. Imagine if the films final moments revealed that she had been tripping balls the whole time and had just slaughtered all her friends. That would be dark stuff. Click the link to see the quite blood soaked trailer and remember to comment and like and all that jazz.
I’m in two minds about posting this trailer. Not because it lacks anything, the trailer is amazing, but because there’s gonna be some many sites posting this I’ll be lucky to pull 3 views from it. But if you happen to be one of the few people that has not come across this trailer elsewhere then click the link below to enjoy the really, really awesome trailer for Iron man 3. I’ll chuck in a bonus unrelated video after the link too.
Looks frigging epic. The Dark knight Returns is, as for many Bat-fans, one of my favourite Batman comics. It was a massive force in the change of direction of that Batman underwent during the 80s. I was quite apprehensive upon hearing the news that Bruce Timm’s team was going to be making the comic as a film at first. Not because I doubted their ability to make a great animation but because I was unsure if they’d be able to fully represent a comic that is densely packed both visually and with it’s story. A while back they announced it would be split into two parts. Personally I would have preferred them to make it just one long film instead but that’s how it is. After the jump is the first full trailer for the first part of the feature. It looks amazing.
Well here’s a red band clip from Dredd. It’s nice and violent and from what I’ve heard this is a really tame scene. I like that the slo-mo is actually in the context of the films story. The drug the perps are taking makes them feel like the world is moving 100 times slower than it is. Notice the blood popping out over the edge of the frame. Look at my post for Oz The Great And Powerful to read what I think of that. Click the link for the clip!
