Trailer: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (Domestic)

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

It has been nearly two months since we first got the international trailer for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, but now, thanks to Yahoo!, we now have a domestic trailer for the film. If I had to make complaints, it would be that the run-time is still pretty short for a theatrical trailer (it only runs 1:43), and it doesn’t include anything truly different from the international edition (despite being ten seconds longer).

Problems aside, the film still looks incredible and Christmas Day cannot come soon enough, even if it is in limited release. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Will There Be A Zombieland Sequel?

Zombieland

Walking out of the theater for Zombieland, the first question that came to mind was, “is there going be a sequel?” By the end of the film, all of the elements needed for a sequel were set up, but there is no current plan for another film. Or is there? Read the rest of this entry »





Watch It! (SPECIAL EDITION) Read It!: On Comedy‚Äôs Flying Trapeze

For the past 40 (yes, 40) years, Monty Python has been making us laugh. Watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Life of Brian, The Meaning of Life, or Flying Circus it is hard to imagine anyone doing anything less than rolling on the floor in a fit of giggles.

To celebrate the anniversary of the British comedy troupe, Charles McGrath of the New York Times has written an article looking back on the groups history and where they are now (did you know that Michael Palin makes travel documentaries now?) The article is long but worth the read for anyone who has even chuckled at Python’s antics. Hit the jump for the link.

Trailer: The Messenger

The Messenger

One of the biggest hits of this year’s Sundance Film Festival and a double winner at the Berlin Film Festival, The Messenger stars Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster as soldiers assigned to inform the next of kin that their loved one died while fighting overseas (can you think of a worse job?). The trailer is without a doubt one of the best that I have seen this year, most notably because of the Willie Nelson cover of “Amazing Grace,” which could get tears out of Anton Chigurh. Major props must be given to Woody Harrelson, who somehow managed to pull off this role and then dress up in a snake-skin jacket to kill zombies. The film is scheduled to have a limited release in November and you can see the trailer after the jump.

Cast Announced For Rodriguez’s Predators

Predators

Last week it was a complete mystery who would star in Robert Rodriguez’s reboot of the Predator franchise, Predators, directed by Nimrod Antal. In an interview, Trejo confirmed that he was involved with the project and details about the plot came out after the script was read by the bloggers over at Latino Review. Now, in a flurry, six new cast members have been added to the project, most likely being the group that is being hunted on the Predator homeworld. Read the rest of this entry »





Clip: The Princess and The Frog

The Princess and the Frog

I was a kid during the late 80s and early 90s, and while I caught the very beginnings of Pixar, my childhood was dominated by movies such as Aladdin, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. With fond memories in mind, watching the first five minutes of their newest 2-D animated film, The Princess and the Frog, recently by Disney on YouTube, brought all those feelings rushing back. I am hardly a sentimentalist, but it seems as though Disney has finally stopped trying to placate to today’s youth and is simply returning to its routes. It is all there: the magical realism, the cute characters and the uplifting messages. If the rest of the film is anything like the first five minutes, Disney might have another one to add to the classics collection. Enjoy the videos after the jump.

Be warned: the video is split into two parts and not all of the animation has been completed yet (some just missing color, some looking like a flip-book), but it is all watchable.

Watch It!: 2012 The Actors Version

6 10 2009

2012

Anyone ever point out that if you were to delete all of the CGI and special effects from a Roland Emmerich film it would be nothing but screams and reaction shots? Well, it turns out that it may be true. Using the new five minute clip from 2012, YouTube user whitecoloursStudio edited out all of the shots of crumbling buildings, which not only left the clip less than one-and-a-half minutes long, but it is nothing but John Cusack, Amanda Peet, and Thomas McCarthy shot through a windshield as they scream. Check it out after the jump.
