Well it’s time for trailers to start coming out of the San Diego Comic Con. First up is Oz The Great And Powerful from Sam Raimi and starring James Franco. Was not expecting something this visually varied from Raimi but I guess I should have known better. I love how it switches from a 4:3 ratio black & white image to a vibrant full colour widescreen sterescopic eyegasm. One thing that caught my eye was objects leaping out of the edges of the screen for 3D moments. I’ve been saying that something similar would have a great effect in 3D for some time. Will be interesting to see how well it works here. My idea was based around THAT famous scene from The Ring. I figured it would add an extra level of scare if the whole film was presented in a false ratio and when Sadako comes out the TV she keeps crawling forwards and then puts her hand over the edge of the frame giving the effect of literally coming out of the screen. Bet they don’t do that in The Ring 3D. Anyway, click the link for the Oz trailer and for a retro style trailer for Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.

Better late than never eh? I mean me getting around to seeing this. Not the fact that a film based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter novels has been doing the rounds for about 80 years now. Also it only took Disney about 1 year to suck the life out of the film prior to release by making some really bizarre marketing choices. But how has the film actually turned out after all these years of countless cancelled projects? Click the link to find out.
Yup, that’s right. I’m making yet another post about John Carter. Looks Like Disney have finally decided to do some actual real promotion for this film and have provided us with 10 minutes of the film to enjoy. I like this format for previewing a film. Generally the first 10 minutes of a film has to hook you so putting it out there for an audience to view is a great idea. You watch your 10 minutes and are hopefully interested enough by the end to want to go see the film. Same method of promotion made me go see the Dawn Of The Dead remake years back and that film rocked. So click the link to see the first 10 minutes of John Carter.
So yeah, there’s a new Avengers trailer out and it’s pretty sexy. Looks like this will be the top popcorn flick of the summer for sure. On the flipside I’m going to post a trailer for the new Adam Sandler film, That’s My Boy, which looks terrible. Really really terrible. Also a new John Carter (Of Mars) trailer. I guess I’ll post something retro too when I can think of something. Click the link dawgs!!
Sorry, wrong John Carter. Too late now. Can’t go changing the pic now I’ve clicked the button. Anyway, here’s 4 minutes of upcoming Disney sci-fi epic John Carter (Of Mars). I’m convinced this is at least going to be an enjoyable action romp and hopefully people will give it a chance before they write it off as some typical Avatar type film. It deserves better than that. This is a film that has been in and out of production for decades, based on a new 100 year old book. I get the vibe that this will succeed via word of mouth more than anything. So click the link for a 4 minute preview of the film. Hopefully Disney put a few more out like this over the next couple of weeks.
It’s Trailer Park time!!! I know you’ve all been waiting for this time of the week to come around. You haven’t? Well up yours then! Still gonna post trailers though because, well, what else am I gonna do on a Thursday night? Other than finally hit the level cap on DC Universe. Something a little different this week for the first trailer which will be a fan made trailer for John Carter (Of Mars), followed by Wrath Of The Titans and something retro! Click the jump yo!
So James “Jim” Cameron is re-releasing Titanic next year in 3D. Remember when he was the director of Terminator and Aliens? If you’re under 20 years probably not I’d guess. Anyway, I’ll be posting a trailer for that. Also I’m going to be bringing you the trailer for Disney-Pixar’s Brave this week. It looks pretty damn good. Hopefully this’ll be the film to push their tomato-meter up after the lukewarm reception Cars 2 got. I haven’t seen that but you know what? I really liked the first cars film. Oh and a retro trailer as always shall be posted. Once I think of one…
The 50th of Disney’s animated classics is also the one that has had the most prolonged development. Originally targeted for production as early as 1947 the story of Rapunzel was one celebrity head in a frozen jar Walt had always wanted to see finished. He never did (or did he?) and over the years the idea was put on the back burner. Obviously there’s only a finite amount of fairy tales for Disney to adapt and so it was inevitable that one day Rapunzel would be asked to let down her hair on cinema screens via the medium of Disney’s cinematic magic. Read on for my views on the resulting film…
Yesterday I reviewed a film I waited 2 years for. Mortal Kombat the game was released in 1993 and the film reached theatres in 1995. 2 years felt like an eternity then. All the while there was one film I wanted more. A sequel I had literally been waiting my whole life for. The original Tron film was released in late 1982, around 4 months after I was born. I probably saw it for the first time when I was about 3 or 4. I loved the hell out of it then and still do now. Even at that young an age I knew what was going on cos I was raised at the dawn of the digital age and my dad was just as much of a computer nerd as I am now. Fast forward 28 years and Tron Legacy was released in the cinema, in 3D no less. Was the wait gonna be worth it? Was my childhood obsession with these little computer people going to be sated?
