In penance for there being no trope this week, I offer up this newly released trailer for Iron Man 3.
As Iron Man 2, while still fun, was a bit of a step down quality wise from the first movie, I haven’t been quite as excited about this. But Downey was a blast in The Avengers and this trailer puts Iron Man 3 squarely back on the I Can’t Wait List.
It…looks…AWESOME! Ooo, Pepper in distress, Tony’s hair, seriously creepy iron man suit with no Tony! Yay! And what’s up with the huge bunny in the back of the explosion? Watch it again. You’ll see.
As we enter the second half of the year, Oscar contenders start sticking their heads out of the ground and sniffing the air like groundhogs on Groundhog Day. The real onslaught won’t start until the fall but here are a couple to whet your appetite that have some of my favorite elements in common; lush costumes, big talented ensembles, and lots of accents.
I have never seen or read Les Mis in any form. I know. I know. I should have seen it on stage when I was in London. Anyway, this will probably be the one.
Chick 2 comments on this trailer: “Sniff, sniff.” And I quite agree. Read more
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis playing the same character at different ages? Yes, please! Throw in some Emily Blunt and time travel and I am there.
Gordon-Levitt plays a hitman who kills targets sent back from the future. But one day the target sent back is…him. Oops. Check it out.
Looks a litte intense for me but there are enough people I like to get me there. Director Rian Johnson wrote the script. He also directed two other movies that I haven’t seen but have always wanted to; Brick (a film noir set in high school and also starring Gordon-Levitt) and The Brothers Bloom (quirky caper with another amazing cast). Time for a viewing party.
I’ve been watching the buzz around the interwebs about this Tim Burton directed movie but, having never watched the 70s show on which it’s based, I have to say I really didn’t care. But now that the first trailer is out, I’m intrigued. I like Tim Burton but he doesn’t always knock it out of the park. But he has stacked the deck as far as cast is concerned and I love the quirky, self-aware tone. This could be a couple of hours of fun.
I admit; I’ve not had high hopes for The Avengers movie. Despite director Joss Whedon’s reputation and devoted fans (I don’t really know his work but he seems to inspire the kind of fervor I can relate to) it just seems impossible to successfully combine all the different superheros involved and their respective universes with any credibility.
The first couple of trailers were OK. But this latest one has finally peaked my interest. Maybe this won’t be so bad after all.
This freaky but romantic movie is from Argentinian filmaker Juan Diego Solanas. It doesn’t even have a U.S. distributer but looks fantastic. Stars Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst (who’s had an upside down kiss before).
A slew of interesting trailers came out last week. It looks like the fall will be exciting!
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: Based on the 1974 novel, this film is packed with British acting heavyweights. The movie looks tense and tightly put together but I’ll be going mostly because of the amazing cast. Opens November 18th.
New Trailers for The Tourist and (Squee!!!) Harry Potter
The Tourist: Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in a thriller? I’m in. This trailer is actually the second to be released. Looks like a good story and Depp and Jolie can certainly handle themselves. Directed by Oscar-winning director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. (there’s a name for ya) I’m not a fan of the look that Depp is sporting but he’s still Johnny Depp…sigh. Opens December 10th.

It’s a bit early for Oscar season. There are still a few big summer movies due out yet. But it is time for the trailers for upcoming Oscar bait to start hitting. Here are a couple that look intriguing. Read more
