Daredevil Born Again on film

Don't blame Ben Affleck for Daredevil, look what he's done since, regardless of who was to blame it was a good attempt at creating the character for film but it fell so far short of the mark it really wasn't any good at all. Since then I've been harping on...

The Three Musketeers 3D trailer is...

I couldn't fit my thoughts about this new trailer for The Three Musketeers 3D into the title so I'm going to do it here. It starts off well, great visuals, superb casting for the Musketeers and Cardinal Richelieu, and then something happens, well two things start happening, and the more...

Update: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol trailer in English

The trailer for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol has hit and it's looking good. I like the idea that the IMF (I always want to say IVF to start with) are being disbanded, and once again, as in the original, Ethan Hunt's team are being blamed for something they didn't...

11-11-11 full trailer arrives

I don't know what to think of the full trailer for the latest Darren Lynn Bousman film 11-11-11. I'm curious why it starts turning into a Grindhouse-esque experience, and not so surprised at the less than subtle appearance of some creatures to add some scares to it, and I'm quite...

Stalked: Affleck; Tarzan; Beatty; Buckley; Bond; Hobbit; Superman; Cruise; Boyle, Trance; Lincoln; G.I. Joe; Kidman, Paperboy

I have a few stories to catch up on while I was away, and so here's the usual Stalked article, a list of some interesting titbits that I either couldn't flesh out to a full story, or were on the cusp, that means articles such as Ben Affleck directing himself...

Toy Story 4?

Tom Hanks was being interviewed for a brief spot on the BBC this morning and he was asked a seemingly rather daft question about Toy Story 4, would there be another one? I say it seems daft because Toy Story 3 (Filmstalker review) finished the trilogy perfectly, so why make...

Immortals second trailer looks amazing

Yes, yes I know it carries a similar style to 300 (Filmstalker review) so what? There are hundreds of films out there that copy styles and are similar to others in some way or another, it's usually why we get genres. Are you going to slag off old westerns because...

Brave trailer from Pixar

Another strong Scottish sounding film, both in title and in accents, and not only does it come from the excellent animators Pixar, but it carries a great cast, some of whom are Scottish too! Kelly Macdonald, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane, Billy Connolly, Craig Ferguson, Emma Thompson and Julie Walters, see...

Latest Logan's Run attempt changes story?

I like the original Logan's Run, dated though much of the technology seems, it is a really good story that has some good story turns and delivers well. So I've been excited about a remake since I heard it was being looked at, but directors have come and gone...

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol bootlegged French trailer

Who would have thought we would have been watching a trailer for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol so soon, and yet we are. It's dogged by overly fast fade in/out moments and perhaps more black screen in between than any one single shot in the trailer seems to last, but...

The Skin I Live In trailer

The first teaser for Pedro Almodóvar's The Skin I Live In looked interesting, and the short blurb hooked us into the potential story. Now we're getting to hear more of the plot and see a more extended trailer, although again the explanations in the trailer are kept to a minimum....

Apollo 18 trailer follows expected beats

The trailer for Apollo 18 has been released, and to be honest it could be set anywhere, in a home, in the woods, anywhere we've seen in one of these first person, lost footage types of films to date. It all plays out to the expected beats, even with nigh...

Super 8

Film Five Stars
The chance to see Super 8 came during the holiday my wife had arranged for my fortieth birthday, taking in the Canadian Grand Prix with a couple of weeks in Montreal and Quebec. With some days with huge temperatures and me not being a big fan of the heat, my...

Captain America: The First Avenger new trailer

A new trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger has arrived online, and while it's actually pretty superb, one of the final taglines just turned me off and left a sour taste in my mouth. "Heroes are made in America". Are they really? Well the trailer debunks that showing an...

WarGames reboot gains director

It would seem that the previously talked about reboot of WarGames is still going to happen, and why not? Technology and cyber crime/terrorism has come quite a way since the days of acoustic couplers and wireframe graphics so there's a lot to update, but the director they've chosen for the...

Formula 1 Niki Lauda film loses director

I had written about the Formula 1 film Rush which which looked at Niki Lauda's career and his battle with rival James Hunt before, where Lauda himself had revealed that the film was in development and that Paul Greengrass was the man to take it forward. However news today reveals...

30 Minutes or Less trailer

The trailer for 30 Minutes or Less is rather manic, but it's all in a good way, really. The film sees Jesse Eisenberg playing a pizza delivery guy (hence the title) who has a bomb strapped to him and is told to rob a bank by two masked men otherwise...

Lucky trailer looks bizarrely good

Lucky stars Colin Hanks, Ari Graynor, Jeffrey Tambor, Mimi Rogers and Ann-Margaret, and from that cast list you might think it's going to be some average fare, but when you watch the trailer and read the blurb you do feel a little strange, this isn't what you might have expected,...

Viva Riva trailer

I hadn't heard anything about Viva Riva until this trailer and it has me intrigued, not because the trailer tells us anything because it really doesn't, it's just a series of snapshots of moments from the film, but there are a few comments from reviewers that made me look a...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake trailer

I'm not really sure if this is any different from the previous trailer I posted for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake from David Fincher, in fact I think it's just the same trailer released in Quicktime high definition, but I think it's worth another mention none the...

Muppets trailer delivers

So far the trailers for The Muppets have been missing something, the Muppets, and so the new trailer for The Muppets does just what we need it to. There are Muppets. Muppets and music and some great references back to the television series. This is what I wanted to see....

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I trailer

Cowboys & Aliens new trailer

This new trailer for Cowboys & Aliens looks like the one I saw before Super 8 in Canada just last week. It delivers more of the story, more of the action, and more of the stars, but most of all it does a damn good job of making a bizarre...

The Last Circus (A Sad Trumpet Ballad aka Balada Triste de Trompeta) new red band trailer

Transformers: Dark of the Moon music trailer

This isn't really a trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon as much as it's a music video with film footage for the film featured song Iridescent by Linkin Park. However the great thing is it carries some new footage we haven't seen before and it continues to pound the...

Moneyball trailer

The plot for Moneyball sounds dull beyond belief, a manager of a baseball team uses computer analysis to pick his baseball team which then become successful, surprising all those in baseball, however there are a number of exciting aspects to the story. It's based on fact and it stars Brad...

Jane Eyre international trailer

There's no modernisation, no spectacular interpretation, no 3D, this is just the actors and some great storytelling with Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Sally Hawkins, Judi Dench, adapted by Moira Buffini and directed by Cary Fukunaga, and the famous Charlotte Bronte story of Jane Eyre. I do wonder how...

Japanese Real Steel trailer

So the new trailer for Real Steel has Japanese subtitles and voiceover that explain some of the story that those non-Japanese reading and speaking amongst us will lose, but there's a lot of new footage and it suggests that there's something more to the boxing robot than meets the eye....

Rise of the Planet of the Apes new trailer

Footloose remake trailer

Here's the trailer for the new version of Footloose that I'm still struggling, the reason? Well I still don't get why there's a ban on dancing, even if someone does die in a car crash because of it. I guess well they did die after a dance party, so that...

A Dangerous Method trailer

A Dangerous Method not only has David Cronenberg directing but it comes from the writer Christopher Hampton who also has Atonement, The Quiet American and Dangerous Liaisons to his name, then there's the cast of Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightly and Vincent Cassel, a list that is rather impressive....

Fright Night trailer

Conan the Barbarian eighteen only trailer

The trailer for the remake of Conan the Barbarian does seem to offer more than just fighting and gore, but to be fair there's a lot of both in the trailer along with a hint of a story. Marcus Nispel's Conan looks strong in any aspects, the question is does...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II trailer

Fast and Furious Five (Fast Five)

Film Four Stars
I think it's worth saying up front that I am a fan of the Fast and the Furious franchise and there is a slight bias towards them, after all they are filled with fast cars and cool characters, although it's really the fast cars I like. Although there are some...

Thor

Before we heard anything about cast and crew for Thor we heard that they were bringing the mythical Norse God who commands amazing powers through his hammer to the big screen. It couldn't work, that's exactly what I was thinking, the character was just too fantastical to imagine brought to...

Greengrass directing Niki Lauda film?

For those fans of Formula 1, whatever era, you should know who the legendary Niki Lauda is, for he's still involved with the team and carries with him the scars of just how dangerous the sport is. While racing against the equally famous James Hunt for the 1976 championship he...

New Stake Land trailer pokes fun at Twilight

Burton and Taylor, directed by Scorsese
