Trailer Watch: The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was a pleasant surprise for me. In retrospect, I should have read it earlier as the people who were recommending it were by no means devout followers of Twilight. However, I was wary of a similar story of forbidden love and annoying dialogue. I kick myself for this now. […]

Trailer Watch: Snow White and the Huntsman

Well I’m a bit surprised. For the most part, I’ve written Kristen Stewart off. I had no desire to see the Twilight films and Adventureland was merely so-so. However, I can say for sure that I will be seeing her new film after this intriguing and well done debut trailer. In the epic action-adventure Snow […]

Trailer Watch, Novel Edition

This first trailer is a bit of serendipity for me. Every year here in East Lansing, Michigan State University does ‘One Book, One Community’ with the goal to get everyone in town talking about the same book. It’s a brilliant idea and has worked extremely well with this being the tenth year. They bring the […]

Trailer Watch: J. Edgar

I have mixed feelings about this first look at J. Edgar. Granted, Clint Eastwood is usually a pretty solid director and Dicaprio is always great, but apart from the aging makeup (which I’m reserving judgement on), sometimes biopics fall into a dangerous slow place. There is a lot to tell a story from here, so […]

Trailer Watch: The Pig with the Froggy Tattoo

In case the title isn’t obvious? This is another absolutely wonderful parody trailer for The Muppets. Including a fantastic original song. If these trailers are any indication, The Muppets is going to be one of the funniest, most clever films of the year. And they’re certainly building anticipation wonderfully. We’re getting a few glimpses of […]

Trailer Watch: WTF-Did-I-Just-Watch edition

Really, I’m only giving you one trailer today. But it’s a doozy. I recently saw the film Eyes Without a Face. I believe ‘ugh’ may be the word. However, it was also a brilliant flick. And the new Pedro Almodovar (Broken Embraces, Matador) film, The Skin I Live In, appears to owe at least a […]

Trailer Watch: Ralph Fiennes does Shakespeare, Lucas’ latest, and more

Can I just say that it’s sort of weird to see Ralph Fiennes with a nose? Fiennes has grown back his missing scent organ for his upcoming adaptation of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, which will also be his first film in the director’s chair. A modern retelling, it also stars Gerard Butler who looks pretty damn excited […]

Trailer Watch: Main Street

Check out the new trailer that just dropped for Magnolia Pictures’s new film Main Street. Looks like the inspirational story of overcoming hardships and finding love in a small North Carolina town.  Penned by Horton Foote (the writer behind the Oscar-winning screenplay for the 1962 film version of To Kill a Mockingbird), this flick seems […]

Trailer Watch: Brave

Dear Pixar, We’ve had our differences in the past. For example, I couldn’t understand why you’d release something derivative like Cars 2 when you had such great concept art from the now dead Newt. I mean, sure, Rio sort of beat you to the punch, but I’m sure yours would have been something unique and […]

Trailer Watch: The Muppets, Red Bands for 30 Minutes or Less and Conan the Barbarian and more

The Muppets continues its trailer domination with a clever send-up of Green Lantern. I’m a diehard Muppets fan and if the movie turns out to be half as clever as its marketing, I’ll be seeing this in theaters more than once. Check out the trailer and the synopsis below. On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, […]
