Oldboy gains Josh Brolin, getting better?

Okay, this is really happening. We heard that Spike Lee is directing the remake of Oldboy just recently, confirming that it really was going ahead, and if that wasn't enough we heard just yesterday a rumour that someone from inside Christian Bale's team might be considering Oldboy as one of...

Boxleitner says TRON 3 happening

Well yes, Bruce Boxleitner does say that the third TRON film is happening as it's a done deal, and he does say that it's going to be in 2013 most likely, but there are plenty of caveats to go with that to put the story in perspective. Still, he's said...

Lin reveals checklist for Terminator 5

Justin Lin has been talking about Terminator 5 and what he would like to see in the fifth film, that is if it gets made, and he's very clear up front about what needs to be in place for it to happen, and he opens up about what might be...

Tower Heist new International trailer

For half of the trailer I was just thinking this was exactly the same as the previous, although there are a couple of recut lines of dialogue to keep them snappier or fully explain a joke, it's still pretty much the same. Then came a montage of new shots from...

Flatliners remake?

Well it certainly looks that way as Columbia Pictures have hired a writer to have a bash at the remake, and the writer is known for writing the third and fourth Species films, a television thriller, and more importantly, the excellent Source Code. So it sounds as though the studio...

Essential Killing trailer

Directed by Jerzy Skolimowski and starring Vincent Gallo and Emmanuelle Seigner, Essential Killing has been gathering some praise around the festivals, and a new trailer online reveals that it may have its shortcomings, but the film itself looks a powerful thriller and the blurb promises something more thoughtful than you...

The Hunger Games teaser

Okay, imagine if you will that you haven't read the book The Hunger Games, imagine for example you're someone like me, and then watch the teaser trailer for the film and wonder why you should go and see the film. Perhaps you'll end up doing what I'm doing right now,...

Fireflies in the Garden trailer

How did this film take so long to be released in America? It was made in 2008 and was only released in May 2009 in the UK, meandering through a release list until it's finally ended up back where it was made. It's especially surprising as it stars Julia Roberts,...

Final Apollo 18 trailer

This looks like the final trailer for the "found footage" film in space Apollo 18, which tells a story kept secret by the U.S. Government for so long, that Apollo 18 went to the moon and discovered something horrifying, which is why they have never returned since. The story is...

Cruise hits F1 Red Bull

This isn't really a wholly film related video, but it combines two of my passions, one of them is film in the form of a huge star of cinema, Tom Cruise, and the other is in another of my passions, fast cars. I tell you if I were as rich...

Ice Cold in Alex

Blu-ray Three Stars
It had been a long time since I watched this war film, and to be honest I couldn't remember much about it other than it was considered a great classic, starred John Mills, and was used for the equally famous Carlsberg advert. Just thinking of it as another war film...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Aykroyd says Ghostbusters 3 happening...again

I don't know about you but I'm a little tainted about this whole Ghostbusters sequel idea, in fact I'm more than a little tainted I am sick fed up of it. We've heard time and time again that the film is just around the corner, but that's not the part...

Romancing the Stone remake resurfaces?

It was December 2008 when we first heard that there was a remake of the classic Romancing the Stone in the works and since then there have been a few more stories that have suggested it was going to happen, but they've all come to nothing. Well we've not heard...

Considine's Tyrannosaur trailer looks great

Paddy Considine is a great actor, he's given us some great roles and he can turn his hand to some really subtle acting and some great character roles too. He is fantastic in front of the camera, but how is he behind? Well Tyrannosaur is his first feature film that...

The Rum Diary trailer, does it do it for you?

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark 18's only trailer

The new trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, which is marked Red Band for Americans and most likely slightly less for the rest of the world, isn't that scary or shocking to be honest. Plus it's cut incredibly fast. However it does come with a big blurb and...

In Time trailer gives too much away?

The Andrew Niccol film In Time starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Alex Pettyfer, Cillian Murphy and Johnny Galecki has a great premise to it and the recent trailers have been looking really strong, but this new trailer gives too much away for me and doesn't help the film....

Bale's next high profile choices includes Oldboy?

I'm going to say this up front, the commentary about an actor's upcoming roles that they are considering, or any talent for that matter, must always be taken with a pinch of salt. The depth of their consideration can range from being seen with an executive, writer or director behind...

The Lady teaser trailer

Luc Besson's trailer for The Lady builds a rather immense feel to the film in just a few short moments. It's very short and doesn't tell us much more apart from a few teases of what the film will cover and a reveal of Michelle Yeoh playing the most important...

Tom Cruise drives an F1 car, films to come?

Blackthorn trailer, Sundance Kid lives

Imagine if, instead of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid being gunned down at the end of that iconic film with Robert Redford and Paul Newman, one of them survived. That's what happens in Blackthorn, the Sundance Kid is not dead, and he's played by Sam Shepard. The film sees...

Get Him to the Greek

Digital Three Stars
I have to admit I wasn't interested in watching Get Him to the Greek. It sounded like a typical American comedy and with Russell Brand starring I wasn't feeling any better about it. Mind you saying that when I saw him in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (Filmstalker Review) I was impressed,...

Polanski's Carnage trailer online

A trailer for Roman Polanski's next film Carnage has appeared online and it's looking rather good. It does suggest that it will be more like a play with four strong actors and one location, and a ton of great acting. Well that's what the trailer suggests anyway. The story is...

Fortress of War (Brestskaya krepost) trailer

Father of Invention trailer

Kevin Spacey is one hell of a talent, but sometimes he does choose some strange films, and Father of Invention looks like one of those stranger choices. You'd think for a man who is running the Old Vic theatre in London that he'd be looking for more weighty projects, but...

Scorsese's Living in the Material World trailer

Hellraiser: Revelations trailer, Barker backs off

I missed this trailer when it was released, and I'm just now wondering if I should have kept on missing it rather than writing about it, but there are a couple of things worth saying about the new Hellraiser film. The first is that it's obviously going to be pretty...

Night Music

Film Four Stars
Night Music is a breath of fresh air for film fans who like a bit of depth, some thought, and intelligence from their films, and I'm definitely one of those people. I have to admit I've been tiring of the constant shallow remakes, reboots, 3D led, action driven, soulless films...

Filmstalker's Films for August 2011

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance trailer

Butler's Machine Gun Preacher trailer

Underworld: Awakening trailer

War Games remake losing itself?

The Woman in Black trailer

Trespass trailer delivers

New Immortals trailer - Wow

I think that's all I need say on the subject, wow. Of course though, I'll say more, I have to, for the new trailer for Immortals does a number of things, and looking back at the other trailers it does something rather clever, it moves away somewhat from 300 (Filmstalker...

Update: Puncture trailer suggests more?

Logan's Run and Wonder Woman?
