Must Watch: Second Trailer The Wolfman!

Universal has debuted the second new trailer for Joe Johnston's The Wolfman. I just have to say I love this new trailer. Now-a-days they tend to give the whole movie away in under 2 minutes. It's so annoying! They really just need to simplify the trailers i.e. less dialogue and more intensity. I think having a song play in the background is also a great idea. Anyway, I'm not usually a wolfman kind of girl - I'm much more into vampires. However, this film looks really good. It's dark and stylized, it's mysterious and eerie, and above all, it has an amazing cast! I'm a huge fan of every main actor in the film. It's unfortunate this movie won't be released on Halloween. How perfect would that be? Anyway, check out the new trailer below.

Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Upon his return and after being reunited with his estranged father, Talbot is bitten and cursed by a werewolf.

The Wolfman is directed by visual effects Oscar winner Joe Johnston, of Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, and Hidalgo previously. The screenplay was co-written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en, 8MM, Sleepy Hollow) and David Self (The Haunting, Thirteen Days, Road to Perdition). Universal will be bringing The Wolfman to theaters on February 12th, 2010.

I can't wait to see this movie. What are your thoughts?

Full Theatrical Trailer for Pixar's Toy Story 3!

Disney has finally debuted the full-length theatrical trailer for Toy Story 3 this morning on Yahoo. The first short teaser arrived back in May and Pixar fans (myself included) have been waiting patiently since then for a real glimpse at what we'll be seeing next summer. This trailer finally shows us what the story will be about in Toy Story 3 and it definitely looks as fun as the past two.

Watch the theatrical trailer for Pixar's Toy Story 3:

Tom Hanks returns to voice Woody, Tim Allen returns as Buzz, and Joan Cusack is back again as Jessie.

Toy Story 3 is being directed by Lee Unkrich, another one of Pixar's creative masterminds who previously co-directed Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo. The screenplay was written by Michael Arndt, the Oscar winning screenwriter of Little Miss Sunshine who is a newcomer to the Pixar family. Disney is bringing Pixar's Toy Story 3 to theaters everywhere in digital 3D starting on June 18, 2010.

Will you be seeing this movie in theaters?

Must Watch: Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus Trailer

Sony Pictures Classics has finally debuted a US trailer for Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus over on Yahoo today. I think Gilliam is billiant yet crazy insane. His movies tent to trip me out. And if anyone has ever seen any of his films - i.e. Time Bandits - then you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, this film has a great cast - not only including the late Heath Ledger and his three replacements, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell - but the other cast members are fabulous as well. It could be a very fantastical film with plenty of very trippy scenes - duh.

Watch the new trailer below and enjoy!

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is directed by beloved filmmaker Terry Gilliam, of the Monty Python movies, Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Twelve Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and The Brothers Grimm previously. The screenplay was co-written by Gilliam and Charles McKeown of Gilliam's Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen previously. This first showed at the Cannes Film Festival and is being distributed by Sony Pictures Classics here in the US. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus arrives in limited theaters starting on December 25th, Christmas Day, then expands.

Look any good?...

Sequels That Bombed

Source: MovieFill

The Final Destination, New Line Cinema’s fourth stab in the Final Destination series, remained at #1 at the box office last weekend. Its current total of just over $50 million domestically, puts it on pace to be the most successful movie in FD franchise history - not by much, but it’s still a net loss for discerning filmgoers nationwide. This news is too surprising. In the battle between intelligent filmgoers and Hollywood executives, most of the time, stupidity wins. Recent insanely successful dumb sequels include: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (which made over $828 million worldwide, despite abysmal reviews), and Indiana Jones: and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ($786 million worldwide, despite Harrison Ford needing an assistant to crack his whip at this point. However, sometimes (on very rare occasions) when Hollywood recycles garbage in the form of half-baked sequels, we punish them for it. We take a stand. We boycott their bulls*t. I mean, seriously? Free Willy 3? How many times are we gonna have to free this whale? Maybe he’s meant to die. The following graphic features notable sequels that bombed at that box office over the last 20 or so years, taking into account box office (adjusted for inflation) and Rotten Tomatoes reviews. Most of the films we included made under $35 million. A few (Blair Witch 2, Analyze That), made over $35 but were still considered bombs because of the significant drop in sales from their predecessor. Bombs away!

You know I really thought Basic Instinct 2 was gonna be huge (note the sarcasm). But all in all I have to say it comes as no surprise that most of these movies here died a miserable box office death. The funny thing about this chart is that most people probably haven't even seen most of these films, which is exactly why they were failures (and for good reason, most of them sucked). Anyway, I hope we've gained some insight here. If the first movie sucks or is fine on its own leave it alone!

Second Official Trailer for Shutter Island

Paramount has debuted a second new trailer for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island. This new version features a few of the same scenes we'd seen in the original trailer, plus plenty more we haven't seen yet. It also doesn't spoil any of the twists and turns, thankfully. The only other major change is the release date - from October to February of next year. Despite all that, I still think this looks incredible. I love a good thriller and if DiCaprio's in it it's guaranteed to be an awesome film. I'm reading the book right now and so far I'm loving it. I have pretty high hopes for this, Scorsese is brilliant, and I expect nothing less for Shutter Island.

The story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the cost of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island's fortress-like mental hospital for the criminally insane.
Shutter Island is directed by prolific filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of everything from Taxi Driver to Raging Bull to Goodfellas to Cape Fear to Gangs of New York to The Aviator to The Departed. The screenplay was written by Laeta Kalogridis, of Night Watch, Alexander, and Pathfinder previously. This is based on Dennis Lehane's novel. Paramount is bringing Shutter Island to theaters on February 19, 2010.

New Clash of the Titans Photos

A lot of new photos from Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans have just been revealed. Earlier today, Empire released another batch of high res photos featuring Sam Worthington and some odd mythological creatures (who the heck is that big guy standing next to him?). Additionally, Entertainment Weekly debuted more photos, including our first photo of Liam Neeson as Zeus standing in his fortress up on Mt. Olympus (which looks much like the original). Anyway, check out these photos and stay tuned for a trailer soon (I hope).

Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny. Louis Leterrier is directing from a script by Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark).

I can't wait! What are your thoughts?...
