The Ides of March trailer

These are the kind of films we need to start seeing, the ones that are entertaining, thrilling, well acted, written and shot, and tackling a big issue that people need to know more about, the corruption, lies and manipulation that happens behind the scenes to try and steal your votes,...

Tower Heist trailer

Eddie Murphy, where did he go? Well he's back in Tower Heist, the film directed by Brett Ratner which also stars Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Téa Leoni, Casey Affleck, Michael Peña, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe and Judd Hirsch. He looks like he's back in this clip, although perhaps not to...

Another Earth trailer

Mike Cahill's film, Another Earth, is far from the science fiction film you'd expect judging from the trailers we've seen to date. So far it's been about people, relationships, and what it means to be you, and I love that. The trailer concentrates on a couple who have come together...

Final scenes of Captain America: The First Avenger online

No, this isn't bootlegged, but then neither is this the complete ending for Captain America: The First Avenger, but a condensed version that gives something major away about the end of the film but leads into his meeting with S.H.I.E.L.D. A short few moments from the end of Captain America:...

Battleship trailer

I'm not sure what to say about the Battleships trailer. Part of me is impressed that they've built so much around the no-story game which was just a naval battle of equally matched ships, part of me is disappointed that with so much scope this is the trailer we get,...

Red State adults only trailer

Kevin Smith's Red State has a new trailer online, red band for Americans and over eighteen for most of the rest of us. Basically it has some swearing and gun shooting. Yet that's not a description of the trailer, for there's a lot more there, including a touch of the...

Fright Night international trailer online

Fright Night was receiving the big sell in the cinema I was in yesterday, four huge character posters and a pop-out standing banner outside the front door, and surprisingly the words 3D weren't visible anywhere as far as I can recall. The character banners make the film feel a little...

Love Crime trailer looks fantastic

The new trailer for Love Crime, aka Crime d'amour, really does deliver the promise of a powerful psychological thriller with two powerful female leads, and one of my favourite actresses Kristin Scott Thomas. Directed by Alain Corneau who co-wrote with Nathalie Carter, the film stars the fantastic and gorgeous Thomas...

Bourne Legacy connects to Bourne series

When I first heard that the new Bourne Legacy series was going to feature a new agency creating new Bourne-type assassins I thought that this was a cheap reboot/remake/re-invention/re-imagination ploy to restart a series without the original stars. However with the news coming of some of the co-stars I wonder...

New Brighton Rock trailer

I think this trailer for Brighton Rock might be the best one I've seen yet. Visually it looks fantastic, it carries strong cinematography through every shot, and there are a lot of strong lines from powerful actors setting up some rather combative relationships. While the remake wasn't too well received,...

The Lost Symbol loses director

Well the team who made the first two film adaptations of the Dan Brown novels so great won't be returning for the third film The Lost Symbol, well they will be but not as we know them. That doesn't mean one of them is having plastic surgery, it means that...

New Year's Eve trailer

A trailer for New Year's Eve has appeared online and it promises little in the way of story and much in the way of, well stars. There just appears to be a sea of gleaming white teeth and perfectly turned out people, nothing looks very real, the closest we get...

Happy Feet 2 trailer

A trailer has arrived for Happy Feet 2, and it washes over me without the slightest interest at all. Mind you I have no desire to see animated penguins dancing and singing in choreographed numbers, children do, and if I believe Hollywood they especially do in 3D. There are a...

Margin Call trailer online

A film about the financial crises, well the first day of the financial crisis to be exact, doesn't sound that exciting as a thriller, a documentary perhaps, but not a dramatic thriller. Yet to all accounts Margin Call brings us just that, a dramatic thriller about the first day of...

Intruders trailer in English

Yesterday I wrote about the first trailer for the Juan Carlos Fresnadillo film called Intruders. It was in Spanish and rather hard to gain an understanding of the plot. Now this English language version is much clearer and contains some key titles to help you on the way, and it...

Spielberg confirms new Jurrasic Park

We've heard discussion about a new Jurassic Park film on and off since the last one, but now it seems this discussion makes it official, after all the man doing the talking is Steven Spielberg, and he should know. He revealed to the Comic-Con audience at San Diego that he's...

Soderbergh's Haywire gets a trailer

Steven Soderbergh is extending what he's done with adult star Sasha Grey in The The Girlfriend Experience (Filmstalker review) and widened the scope even further, for now he's taken the mixed martial arts star Gina Carano and turned her into an action film star, and not just any action film...

Redemption Road trailer glows

I have a certain type of film in mind when I think of Mario Van Peebles, and it's certainly not Redemption Road, so that's maybe why the Peebles directed film starring Michael Clarke Duncan, Morgan Simpson, Kiele Sanchez, Taryn Manning, Luke Perry and Tom Skerritt looks so good and has...

Fresnadillo's Intruders trailer

A full trailer for Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's Intruders film has arrived online, a horror/thriller that stars Clive Owen, Carice van Houten, Daniel Brühl, Kerry Fox, Ella Purnell and a surprising Mark Wingett. Okay it's a non-English trailer with no subtitles, but there's plenty to be had from the trailer that...

You Instead trailer from T in the Park

This trailer caught my eye today, it's for a film that was shot entirely on location during the Scottish music festival T in the Park over five days and seems to have a rather interesting storyline where two singers from two different bands are handcuffed together and forced to spend...

Main Street trailer starring Colin Firth

Main Street had never popped its head up for me, even with the actors involved - Colin Firth, Ellen Burstyn, Patricia Clarkson, Amber Tamblyn, Orlando Bloom - and that's quite a list. Filmed only last year it went to the Austin Film Festival, DVD in Sweden and Brazil, and is...

Uncertainty over Dirty Girl trailer

Dirty Girl just didn't seem very interesting when I saw the title and the poster, I immediately made a decision about it and it wasn't a good outcome. Then I saw the trailer and I thought perhaps there is something there, although I'm still not convinced. Mind you, it does...

Bel Ami trailer with gigolo Pattinson

Wow, isn't Robert Pattinson trying hard to get rid of his Twilight image, and good on him too. His latest film Bel Ami looks like it's really taking him far away from that film, although he's still keeping the heart-throb image. He's becoming a gigolo and pampering to a list...

Niccol's In Time trailer arrives

The trailer for Andrew Niccol's science fiction film In Time has arrived and it looks really good, grabbing you with the concept from really early on, I'm impressed and it looks like it could be an exciting film. There's an interesting cast to go along with the film too, Justin...

Bunraku trailer impresses

You might remember some of the stories about the Bunraku film starring Josh Hartnett, Gackt, Ron Perlman, Woody Harrelson, Kevin McKidd and Demi Moore, it promised all manner of strange styles to it, think Western, Samurai, Noir with wire work and origami sets, just the taster there sounds bizarre...

Paranormal Activity 3 trailer crackles online

You should know by now I am not a fan of the Paranormal Activity 3 series. The first film scared me as much as an empty paper bag and was so formulaic and forced it ended up just irritating me. The trailer for Paranormal 2 didn't offer much more so...

The Amazing Spider-Man trailer arrives

Now the real trailer arrives, after watching the bootlegged version of The Amazing Spider-Man the official trailer has been released and it's looking rather good, although I have to say my thoughts haven't changed. The fade in-outs are still too fast, the closing section makes it look like a videogame...

Has Hollywood's greed hurt 3D?

I feel like slapping my forehead and saying "Doh!", but it does seem obvious that Hollywood's desire to milk every last drop of profit out of a latest trend or genre for as little cost as possible has resulted in the latest trend or genre pushing audiences away and a...

Dream House trailer

Dream House is a trailer that surprises as much as the twists of a thriller do. I have to admit that when I started watching it I could see the standard checkpoints along the way and thought we were in for another Amityville type horror film. Wrong, so wrong. For...

Escape From New York remake escapes remake?

It looks like the plans for that Escape From New York remake, the one that had Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner and even apparently Tom Hardy interested in taking up the role of Snake Plissken, have fallen through and the remake will be no more. Well when I say no more,...

United trailer shows Munich Air Crash

Sector 7 trailer gives it all away

Stiller tales on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

I find Ben Stiller a hit or miss in front of the camera, but behind he's definitely had much more praise, although in front he's definitely earned his success financially. You only have to look to Reality Bites and Zoolander to see how diversely he can direct and also the...

King talks The Dark Tower failure, Howard moves on

It really is disappointing for fans of The Dark Tower, and I'm sure you can tell I'm one of them, that the project has been scrapped, especially such an ambitious one as the Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Akiva Goldsman one of three films and television series. Now Stephen King...

Tom Hardy playing Al Capone

Tom Hardy is a superb actor, I'm sure no one can deny that, just reel off performance like Bronson (Filmstalker review) and you'll have won people over, or Inception (Filmstalker review) and even RocknRolla (Filmstalker review), but I'm just cherry picking, he has plenty of powerful performances to his name...

Another Ripley Alien film?

The Thing prequel trailer arrives

The prequel to The Thing has arrived, well in trailer format anyway, and it's looking pretty good. There are more traditional scares in here, quiet no one around, lead looking nervously about, then loud musical cue and frantic camera movement to scare the audience, it's old but they only happen...

Scorsese's 3D Hugo trailer
