First five minutes of Sucker Punch online

The awesome opening of Sucker Punch is online to view, and it looks fantastic, drives at a relentless pace, and even those opening scenes are enough to have the tension rising and you feeling slightly off key about the story. It's rather fantastic. I'm not holding court to all the...

Schwarzenegger's return doesn't look good

If you were hoping for Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to film straight away after ending his term in politics then you're in for a disappointment. He's chosen the first entertainment project he's going to star in, but it's not film it's television, and all in all it's a worrying choice...

Summer in Genoa

I thought I had already posted a trailer for Summer in Genoa, but it appears not. It's the new film from Michael Winterbottom and stars Colin Firth, Catherine Keener and Hope Davis with Willa Holland and Perla Haney-Jardine as the children at the core of the story. The mother is...

Total Recall remake plot expands

We've not been hearing much from the Total Recall remake, or rather the re-imagining returning to the source text or whatever they want to call it, but there is news about casting and a little bit of what will be behind the story this time. The villain is in negotiations...

Matrix fan film Kaydara trailer

Fan films aren't really anything new, taking an idea from an existing film and creating your own story around or through it happens quite a lot, but not with films like Matrix, films packed full of high end special effects, a lead actor you could never afford, and a budget...

Update: The young Miss Marple?

It's not something you expect to hear but it looks like the story of Miss Marple, the elderly lady detective from the pen of Agatha Christie, is set to receive a film treatment, however in the good looking world of Hollywood it seems hard for them to swallow the concept...

New English The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec trailer

There's a new lyrically voiced trailer for The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec, the French, female, Indiana Jones character who was first written way back in 1972. The character was a rather cynical investigative journalist who ended up investigating criminal activity mixed with strange stories of the occult. The film...

Midnight in Paris trailer online

The trailer for Midnight in Paris starts off well and hints at the beginnings of a story that could capture your imagination and deliver an interesting film, but it stops a little short of really selling the film. It tells us that the story about a couple staying in Paris...

The Professionals finally getting adapted?

It was almost an entire year ago that we first heard of a potential big screen adaptation of the successful television series of The Professionals, the show starring Bodie and Doyle as the CI5 agents run under the command of George Cowley. Back then the word was that Neil Marshall...

Jack Ryan reboot delayed for good reason

There are two reasons why the new Jack Ryan film is being delayed, one is that they're waiting for Alec Baldwin to get back into shape, magically become younger, and take over the part again...oh I wish that were going to happen but it's not. The truth for the reboot...

Film Three Stars
Limitless surprised me. It's a good thriller that doesn't play out exactly how you might expect, and while it doesn't deliver powerful punches of plot turns, it does offer some strong and exciting moments with some surprises on the way. The idea itself is rather limitless and as the story...

13 Assassins trailer looks fantastic

The surprise film at this year's Glasgow Film Festival was 13 Assassins, and while I didn't go to see it Steven from the Audiocast did. However since he doesn't like Takeshi Miike anyway, it wasn't a very good gauge of how strong the film is. The trailer that has arrived...

Does The Greatest Movie Ever Sold trailer work?

I find myself a little confused and lost by the trailer for The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. While it's clearly telling us the film is all about advertising, it doesn't convey what some of these scenes are trying to get across, who the people are, and what's actually happening. Perhaps...

Hooper to direct Les Miserables?

Tom Hooper, probably still flying high on his success from The King's Speech (and that's the one with the swear words in it, not the sanitised version that will save America's children from being corrupted and bring in the Weinstein's more hard cash) has been rumoured to actually be in...

The Three Musketeers 3D trailer arrives

The Big Bang trailer is definitely something different

The Big Bang looks like an interesting return to the private eye genre, with a kind of classic film noir take that also borders on the feel of Sin City but without the effects. You'll know what I mean when you see the trailer, it has that feel in some...

The Silent House trailer, horror in one take

New Super 8 trailer brings new footage

Well, I have to admit I’ve stretched the truth a little with that title, the trailer is new, but for the most part it’s just the same as the previous, except when you get to the latter half and there’s some new footage. Don’t be fooled though, this isn’t just...

The Veteran trailer with Kebbell, Cox and Curran

I did think of shades of Outlaw when I saw this trailer but from the opening shots it feels more like what Outlaw (Filmstalker review) could have been, and it becomes a harder, more realistic tale. The film sees a soldier returning from active duty to his home estate and...

Wrecked trailer online

Wolverine 2 loses Aronofsky

Red Dawn changes enemy, it's all about the dollar

Larry Crowne trailer revives romantic comedy?

Studios want all their films to hit the thirteen year old and upwards demographic. Apparently that's where the most money is, where the most cinemagoers are, and that's why they want everything to be PG-13 in America. R rated films just don't work. Not helped by the fact that many...
