Trailer Watch: What Kill Bill Part 3 would look like: The Man with the Iron Fists

It’s sort of amazing that chessmaster cum martial artist cum rapper The RZA hasn’t made a foray into film before now. His love of martial arts is obvious to anyone who’s ever looked or hell, even heard the name of, rap group Wu Tang Clan. But now, he’s making his first foray into film directing, […]

Quick Cuts: TMNT enter development hell, Lone Ranger gets a bigger budget and more

Michael Bay’s fan-maligned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake has been shot down by Paramount, at least for the time being. It’s been pushed back until Summer 2014, due to issues with the script. Apparently, no one thought a reboot in which the TURTLES are aliens was an issue, but are learning that now. (Source: Vulture) […]

Trailer Watch: Wreck-It Ralph, Flight and Django Unchained

My apologies for the lack of updates this week, but just in time for the weekend, here’s a trio of trailers. Denzel Washington pretty much kills any role he’s in. And he does especially well in roles that put him up against seemingly insurmountable odds. And here’s another, with the first look at Flight. In […]

Quick Cuts: Fraggle Rock gains writers, Matthew Vaughn’s next project and more

Trailer Watch:Hyde Park on Hudson

Bill Murray is a great actor, there’s no denying that. And in the years that he’s stopped doing all but the quirkiest of comedies (see: Moonrise Kingdom or anything else by Wes Anderson), he’s had a lot of great roles. However, he’s only been nominated for only one Academy Award. But his new film has […]

Trailer Watch: A Fantastic Fear of Everything

Simon Pegg is consistently brilliant, I think that can be agreed upon. He’s chosen, with a few exceptions, interesting projects from his first day in the business.  And his new film, the trailer for which he dropped on Twitter, A Fantastic Fear of Everything, looks like nothing else out there. (This link may be taken […]

Trailer Watch: Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie

Tim Burton has come full circle. He’s re-teamed (again) with Edward Scissorhands star Johnny Depp and appears to be delivering a gothic romantic comedy that shares more than a little of that film’s DNA with the upcoming Dark Shadows. Starring Depp as vampire-out-of-time Barnabas, the film has an excellent cast and while it borrows the […]
