Everything we love about Baz Luhrmann is on full, opulent display in the new trailer for his 3D imagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel “The Great Gatsby.” There’s hyper-stylized 1920s New York (subbed by a soundstage in Australia), gorgeous costumes, anachronistic music and of course, a hard-partying but lovelorn Leonardo Dicaprio at its center. Along with Carey Mulligan, looking like the perfect Daisy Buchanan and Joel Edgerton as her brutish husband Tom, we also get our first glimpse of Gatbsy’s roots in the form of Aussie up and comerRead More
Lovers silhouetted against windswept fields, sweeping camera movements, dreamy sequences that don’t fully make sense, soaring classical music. Yup, it’s a new Terrence Malick film alright, and this time, it’s Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko and Rachel McAdams frolicking about as Javier Bardem waxes poetic in voiceover about love. “To the Wonder” received mixed reviews when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and even Kurylenko and McAdams have been caught stumbling when trying to describe the film, which loosely follows Affleck’s character as he meets one girl (Kurylenko), falls inRead More
Michael Bay tries his hand at a low budget black comedy and the result is… pretty much “Transformers” without the giant robots. The first trailer for weightlifting heist thriller/comedy “Pain and Gain” starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie has just been released, and it has all the Bay aesthetics we’ve come to expect from the bombastic summer blockbuster director. There’s scantily clad women, car chases, guys lifting weights and bromancing it up and an American flag or two. Can’t say this is exactly up our alley, but weRead More
Who better to usher in what could be the next great monster movie? Today the first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s highly anticipated alien invasion epic “Pacific Rim” has been released, and it’s like Transformers meets Cloverfield meets Godzilla meets the Avengers, which means the internet will be going nuts for it. Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba lead the cast of human characters who are tasked with piloting gigantic robots/weapons when gigantic dinosaur-like aliens invade Earth, not from the stars, but from beneath the sea. On the plusRead More
Pretty much in direct contrast to the “Man of Steel” trailers which are all about hazy, mythic atmosphere, the trailers for “The Lone Ranger”, the newest of which debuted today, go full-out exposition. Gore Verbinski directed Armie Hammer in the titular role and Johnny Depp as Tonto in the reboot of the classic long-running radio turned TV series, and while the first trailer dug deep into the action-oriented train robbery plot, the new trailer is all about the men behind the myth. We fear the movie may turn out toRead More
Echoing the counter-intuitive nature of the first teaser trailers, new footage has debuted for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot “Man of Steel”, and it’s every bit as dreamy, blurry and sweepingly epic as its predecessor. In other words, still not at all what you would expect the next presumptive superhero blockbuster to look like. The plus side: it looks amazing. The minus: It’s hard to tell how representative footage like this is of the movie itself. Like the previous trailer, this one lingers for an extended period on Clark’s childhood andRead More
Plot details had been vague for Joseph Kosinski‘s “Oblivion” but this newly released trailer finally fills in some blanks – we’re in for a sci-fi epic, featuring a dystopian feature, an existential crisis and Tom Cruise as Wall-E. Set sixty years after an alien attack nearly wiped out the human race and left Earth inhabitable, Cruise stars as Jack Harper, a man who goes down to Earth to repair the drones that keep the planet safe from reattack. Soon he is kidnapped and discovers that not everything is as itRead More
The gang’s all back in our first look at some intense footage from JJ Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel “Star Trek Into Darkness.” New villain Benedict Cumberbatch narrates this welcome-back for the crew of the Enterprise, including Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, John Cho as Sulu and Zachary Quinto as Spock. Amongst the explosions, volcanic and sea battles, we also have our first look at new addition Alice Eve, who plays an as yet unnamed member of Kirk’s crew. “Star Trek into Darkness” will be released onRead More

The YA Adaptation Trailer Wars: And the Winner Is…. (POLL)

As “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” opens today at the box office for the final time, Hollywood studios have already begun the hunt for the next big adaptation. Numerous books are beginning to head into pre-production and we’re eagerly awaiting casting news for Veronica Roth’s “Divergent“, but this week movie studios began the next phase of page to screen adaptations, releasing full-length trailers for four new films – all adaptations of successful YA novels. Jonathan Levine with his adaptation of Isaac Marion’s “Warm Bodies”, Harald Zwart’s tackling ofRead More
The first trailer for magician heist thriller “Now You See Me” has been released via Yahoo! Movies and it is not at all what I expected. Sleek, high-tech and slightly futuristic, this Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco led actioner is being played out on a way bigger stage than I had anticipated. The three, along with Woody Harrelson, are a group of world class magicians. For their final act, they tell the audience, they are going to rob a bank. They seemingly teleport a member of the audienceRead More
