BBC Releases Autumn/Winter 2010 Preview

I’ve complained in the past — back when I still pulled teeth doing the Watchlist — that the Beeb is terrible about releasing information about their upcoming shows.  One thing they do right well, though, is put together nice trailers when they do feel like announcing their seasonal offerings. Thus.  (And no fear, it’s all […]

Trailer Watch: Sharktopus

Someone at the sci-fi (sorry Syfy) network apparently had the same drg-induced hallucination I did back in college: Roger Corman brought you Dinoshark, Supergator, Scorpius Gigantus, Dinocroc, Wolfhound, The Sea Wolf, Carnosaur, Angelfist, and Attack of the Crab Monsters. This thing is going to be AWESOME. Also, I had wondered if this wasn’t just a […]

Black Star Warrior needs your help, badly

Once again, Google informed me that the latest and final part of the Black Star Warrior documentary is online, and this one has an appeal for help at the end: As the YouTube comments have so far stated, this is really tripping my “This is fake” buttons, but I also agree that it’s so well-done […]

Scott Pilgrim vs The World Soundtrack tracklist announced

Trailer Watch Double Feature: The Adjustment Bureau and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead first official trailers

So today’s trailer watch is a duo of the somewhat fantastic, but at opposite ends of that spectrum. Initially, we’ve got The Adjustment Bureau, a movie based on the writings of that king of cyberpunk, Philip K. Dick. It’s no wonder then, that things feel a little bit Matrix-like. The film stars Matt Damon as […]

Trailer Watch: Super 8 first teaser trailer (updated!)

Today we get our first look at Super 8, the secret collaboration between J.J. Abrams and Stephen Spielberg. Yeah, I don’t know either. The summary from the Wikipedia article: In 1979, a train carrying important cargo from Area 51 is destroyed, causing all contents to be unleashed upon the world. Not much help, really, but […]
