Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 2011 Trailer

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are scoring the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The last time these two collaborated with director David Fincher they won an Oscar for The Social Network. The film also stars Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgard. A long story short, it’s shaping up to be a slick film. [...]

The Thing 2011 Preview

Often the most frustrating things about previews is the fact that often, the releases being promoted aren’t exactly around the corner. Take the Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer, from the last post – that movie isn’t coming out for another year, assuming everything goes to plan. In December of last year, after watching a documentary [...]

Hereafter Preview

If last month was John Malkovich Appreciation Month, then this month belongs to Clint Eastwood. One of Hollywood’s most accomplished film makers has released a film entitled Hereafter. The story deals with mortality and the afterlife and the film stars Matt Damon. I don’t mind drama but something that is sure to be so emotionally [...]

The Plame Game

I loves me a good political thriller. Fair Game is sure to be one. What with Sean Penn and Naomi Watts starring opposite one another in a dramatization of the Valerie Plame affair. Plame was outed by the White House in an attempt to discredit her husband Joseph Wilson, played by Sean Penn – a [...]

Little Fockers Preview

The little trilogy that could. The first film had most people howling, but after the first sequel it was clear that the stern, never to be won over, ex-CIA  father-in-law routine was getting old. Nevertheless the film had no troubles covering production costs, and likely for that reason we’re being treated to Little Fockers. Part [...]

RED Preview

The previews section of this site was getting, admittedly, very thin. Enter RED: Retired Extremely Dangerous, the “we ain’t too old for this shit” Bruce Willis action comedy about retired CIA agents on the run from their former employer. I’m usually quite skeptical when it comes to these kinds of nostalgia tours, but the presence [...]

Dinner for Schmucks Preview

This preview starts off a little weak, but towards the end of the trailer I start getting excited about this movie. Admittedly the premise is a little strange (and the ending of the film looks a little obvious), but anything with Paul Rudd and Steve Carell in it can’t be that bad, can it? The [...]

Robin Hood Preview

A while ago I saw the teaser for this film but now that the trailer is out it seems that a full blown preview for the upcoming Robin Hood is long overdue. In promoting this film they’re eager to remind us that Ridley Scott also directed Gladiator, but if you’re worried about his medieval credentials [...]

Clash of the Titans Preview

Hot on the heels of that other movie about Greek mythology (which also features a Perseus or ‘Percy’ for short), comes one that is perhaps more traditional. Clash of the Titans is a remake of a previous film from 1981, based on the story of Perseus. Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades? Giddy [...]

Wall Street 2 Preview

When I first saw the poster for ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’ with a noble-looking Shia LaBeouf sitting next to Michael Douglas I thought, ‘Really?’ After a second thought and a look at the trailer, perhaps it is the right time to get the smooth talking corporate raider extraordinaire Gordon Gekko out of the slammer.
