A new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has just been released and we’ve got your first look. The last time we got a peak at the film was in December of 2011. Now, this full on trailer gives you a much better idea of what to expect from the film.
For those of you that have read the book, you may be interested in knowing who is playing what character. For preexisting characters, it’s the same as what we saw in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The cast includes Stephen Fry pas The Master of Laketown, Bill Connolly as Dain Ironfoot, Elijah Wood as Frodo, Orlando Bloom as Elf Prince Legolas, Ian Holm as older Bilbo, Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel and more. Also as a reminder, this too is a three part series, with The Desolation of Smaug (2013) and There and Back Again (2014) to follow.
The movie comes out on Decemeber 14. Enjoy the trailer below.
Looks like all the singing and guitar lessons paid off. While Greetings From Tim Buckley received a so-so reception after the film’s screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, Penn Badgley’s turn as late singer Tim Buckley earned him rave reviews. His future certainly looks bright after Gossip Girl ends its run in a few months.
In 1991 Jeff Buckley (Badgley), an unknown twenty four year-old L.A. musician, is invited to participate in a tribute concert in New York City for his late father Tim Buckley, the iconic folk rock star. In the days leading up to the concert, Jeff grapples with his own self doubts and the legacy of his famous father. But with the loving help of an enigmatic young woman working at the concert (Imogen Poots), he finds the courage to perform at the now legendary St. Ann’s concert, where Jeff discovers his own voice singing his father’s songs, captivating the audience and launching Jeff’s own meteoric career.
The 25-year-old actor reportedly beat out Robert Pattinson and James Franco to play the coveted role. Greetings from Tim Buckley is directed and co-written by Daniel Algrant. Imogen Poots stars as Penn’s love interest in the flick. Even though Penn received praise for his portrayal, I couldn’t get past the fact that Penn was playing his GG character, Dan Humphrey. Perhaps, I need to watch the entire film to see Badgley morph into the late singer. Watch the trailer below.
Last week, I shared the first photo from the upcoming Guillermo Del Toro thriller called Mama, and I also had shared the short film of the same name that the the movie is based on. Today the actual trailer for this upcoming fright flick just came out and we’ve got your first look.
The trailer fully lives up to my expectations, and I’m not surprised given that Del Toro is also the one who brought us Pan’s Labyrinth. The film stars a sexy Jessica Chastain as the woman who ends up being an acting mother for two children who lived alone in the woods after their parents were killed. That being said, their real mother may not be entirely gone and she doesn’t seem too keen on the new family arrangement. The kids try to protect their “stand-in” mother from the wrath of Mama by trying to limit any affection, but it’s seems like the damage is already done.
From this first look, Mama appears to be a film that will succeed at making you jump, scream, and hold your breath for a good chunk of the movie. Enjoy the trailer below!
Now You May Not Kiss The Bride isn’t necessarily a new movie, but it hasn’t been officially released and the U.S. trailer hadn’t come out until today. The limited release film was supposed to debut in Hawaii last September, but that ended up falling through. This year, it actually did premiere in Hawaii on August 29, 2012 and is set to open on the mainland in several markets, including Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as Video On Demand, iTunes, and Amazon, on September 21, 2012.
The movie is about an unassuming pet photographer (Dave Annabele, Brothers & Sisters) who is thrown into serious action, adventure and romance when he’s forced to marry a Croatian bride (Katharine McPhee, The House Bunny) and spend his honeymoon at a remote tropical resort where she is kidnapped… yes, kidnapped.
Other familiar faces in the film include Mena Suvari, Kathy Bates, Rob Schneider and Tia Carrere. Check out the trailer below!
The movie trailer for Ginger & Rosa has just debuted and we’ve got your first look at the drama. The movie is set in London in 1962 following two teenage girls named Ginger and Rosa who are pretty much inseparable. They spend their time playing truant together, discussing religion, politics, hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger then the domestic lives their mothers lead.
When the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, and the threat of nuclear holocaust breathes fear into the lives of many, their friendship is torn apart by the clash of desire and the determination to survive. The story really takes the infamous feminist slogan, “the personal is the political” to heart. It looks really captivating and the cast is also worth noting. Elle Fanning and Alessandro Nivola play Ginger & Rosa, but also keep your eyes peeled for Christina Hendricks, Annette Benning, Timothy Spall and more.
The film opens in the UK in October, and just debuted at the TIFF festival this week. Check out the trailer below.
The trailer for a film called Cloud Atlas has just debuted the theatrical trailer and we’ve got your first look att eh star-studded film. The movie explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. It has action, mystery and romance throughout the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.
The film is based on the 2004 novel by David Mitchell and follows six storylines that span across different eras. The film cost over $100 million, making it the most expensive independently financed film ever.
The stellar cast includes: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Zhou Xun, Keith David, David Gyasi, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant. The film opens in theaters on October 26. Check out the trailer below.
From the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes a new “found footage” horror movie that is bound to make you scream. The premise of the film is that on July 4th, 2009, an unexplained event occured in Claridge, MD. All the video evidence was confiscated by the US Government but recently the footage was leaked by an anonymous source.
From what I gathered from the trailer, all chaos breaks loose in Claridge after some ecological disaster occurs. Some sort of parasite is eating people alive… from the inside. Then it looks as though it takes over their body and makes them kill others. It looks quite scary. If you’re looking for a thriller or are a fan of thrillers like me, definitely check out the trailer below.
The movie is in theaters, On Demand and available on iTunes on November 2.
Somehow I missed that that is was even in the works, but I’m certainly glad that it is! The movie trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has just debuted and we’ve got your first look at the fairy tale rebirth.
Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton star as Hansel and Gretel, but it’s now 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident. Since then, they’ve become a dynamic duo of bounty hunters that track and kill witches all over the world. Things are taken to a whole knew level when they face the terror of a dangerous Sorceress played by Famke Janssen (who I LOVE). They must stop her before she can sacrifice all the local children to her dark arts.
It looks party cheesy but part awesome and overall it will be worth checking out in my opinion. The film hits theaters in January 2013. Check out the trailer below!
