Trailer Watch: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I loved seeing Captain America interact with the Black Widow in these scenes from the trailer, and it shouldn’t matter to me that in the comics they worked together; their relationship now seems to be just as interesting and still as exciting as those old stories were when they were first published. I may be […]

Trailer Watch: Lincoln Returns Edition

So I was gone for a bit. Moving. Starting an internship at a music magazine. Stressing about moving and starting an internship at a music magazine. But now I’m back, and I’ll be trying to post as often as possible. Let’s get things started easy, with a grab bag of trailers that came out recently. […]

Tolkien Week Trailer Watch: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

This week is a long expected party celebrating 75 years since the publication of The Hobbit. As I work at a bookstore, I’ve been privy to a bevy of delightful new editions, including a hardcover pocket edition featuring Tolkien’s original cover, a book including and about all of the illustrations he did for the book, […]

Trailer(ish) Watch:Spielberg’s Lincoln

Well, this doesn’t really count as a trailer, since it’s actually just a teaser for the trailer release, but hey, we’re getting our first look at Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln in Spielberg’s upcoming Lincoln. The full trailer premieres during a Google Hangout with Mr. Spielberg on September 13.

Trailer Watch: On The Road and ‘Why haven’t you read Cloud Atlas yet?’

On The Road is a classic. Possibly the defining book of the Beat era, Jack Kerouac’s semi-autobiographical novel is an excellent view into what being a young, bohemian writer has stereotypically become for generations of English majors. And Walter Salles (Director Dark Water, Paris je t’aime) has adapted it with arguably one of the most […]

Trailer Watch: Ang Lee wants another Oscar

Life of Pi has had a rocky road to production. Considered a difficult project to put on screen, it was briefly considered by M. Night Shyamylan. Thankfully, though, Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee has picked it up for his next film, and it looks to be the rare creature that will actually benefit from 3D. […]

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 […]

Trailer Watch: Lockout is Die Hard meets Escape from LA…in space

If that headline gets your heart pumping, you are going to love these trailers. Produced by Luc Besson, Lockout stars Guy Pearce who gets the unenviable job of rescuing the President’s daughter from a rioting space station prison. Let’s not complicate things beyond that. The reason we have two trailers here is that one is […]

Trailer Watch: Prequels to be excited about

I usually try not to do two trailer posts in a row, but this was an especially big week. First, we had the sequels, and now, the prequels. Two great directors. Two great franchises. Two great looking films. Enjoy. Prometheus, directed by Ridley Scott opens on June 8, 2012. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, directed […]

Trailer Watch:Rampart or, Woody Harrelson’s Oscar Bait

Despite the facetious title up there, this looks dark, well done and brilliant. Woody Harrelson looks great, playing a character with the worst nickname (Date-Rape Dave) in cinematic history and chewing up the scenery in the process. Director Oren Moverman (The Messenger) brought his Oscar-nominated actor back and gave him something new to work on, […]
