Man of Steel
I’m just gonna be real honest with you here, I’ve never been much of a fan of this Superman fella. Perhaps it is because I grew up in a generation in which Superman wasn’t entirely relevant or maybe it has something to do with the disappointment of 2006′s Superman Returns. The world will never really know. I think I’m on board for this Zach Snyder project though. I already approve of the darker, grittier take. But like I said, I don’t really know what I’m talking about here. I definitely prefer the Russel Crowe version of the trailer to the Kevin Costner version (both are played in the video above).
I don’t even know where to begin with this epic six-minute trailer except to say that if the trailer is six minutes long, how long is the movie going to be?! Also, you would think that a trailer this long would make it impossible to have no fucking clue what this movie is about, but you would very much so be mistaken. I’m more confused than ever. This trailer looks like some die-hard Tom Hanks fan took it upon himself to mash-up six of his favorite Tom Hanks movies that have absolutely nothing to do with one another (other than the fact they all star Tom). Admittedly I have never read the book, so that probably contributes greatly to my confusion but the trailer was SIX MINUTES LONG so I shouldn’t be confused. Also, this hair:
I wonder how 50 feels about this:
I’m gonna go ahead and take it upon myself to start the “50 Cent needs an Academy Award” campaign right now. You with me?
Life of Pi
The only thing I remember about this book is that I really enjoyed reading this book. This makes me quite sad because this trailer is one of the prettiest, most visually stunning things I have seen in a while. In fact, I suggest you watch the high definition trailer over on apple trailers right this second.
When I first read the description for this movie which starts, “A horror comedy in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland…” I was so beyond sold because not only do I effing love Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, but I am also really happy that “horror comedy” is a now a movie genre. Except then I actually watched the trailer and now I’m not so sure this is a good thing, because this trailer is terrible. Also, sorry I made you watch it.
Ermahgerd, Paul Dano! I LOVE PAUL DANO. How charming does this movie look? I want to watch it right now. Fun fact: Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan are totes dating in real life. Presh.
This trailer actually came out about a month ago, but since I have been unable to stop watching it I decided I should probably share. Atonement and Pride and Prejudice are not only two of my favorite books, they are also two of my favorite movies. So naturally this trailer not only got me excited for another Joe Wright/Keira Knightley period drama, but now I have decided to attempt to get over my fear of Leo Tolstoy (my reading of War and Peace did not go so well) and read this book as well.
