I’ve been waiting for the ‘Keep The Lights On‘ trailer to come out for quite some time now, given the buzz surrounding the film and all of the rave reviews it has received. Now having seen the trailer, I’m even more excited about the film.
Here’s what the film is about: “Keep the Lights On chronicles an emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction. Documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages) meet through a casual encounter, but soon find a deeper connection and become a couple. Individually and together, they are risk takers—compulsive, and fueled by drugs and sex. In an almost decade-long relationship defined by highs, lows, and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself.”
The film hits select theatres on September 7. Watch the trailer below.
Continuing on with Channing Tatum being in every movie this year, here is yet another that is definitely worth watching: 10 Years.The film is about a group of friends that go back to their 10-year high school reunion where they learn who got famous, who completely changed, who didn’t change at all, and who fell in love.
It’s your typical high-school reunion movie storyline where boys & girls get up to their old tricks, old flames are reunited, and where the “adults” reflect on who they were, who they are now, and whether or not they’re happy.
There are tons of awesome people in this movie, so I’ll just list them all here and highlight a few of my faves: Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Chris Pratt, Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Oscar Isaac, Kate Mara, Ron Livingston, Lynn Collins, Ari Graynor, Anthony Mackie, Max Minghella, Aubrey Plaza, Scott Porter, Brian Geraghty, Aaron Yoo, Eiko Nijo and Nick Zano.
The Arnold Schwarzenegger that we remember from the action-packed movies that made him famous is back. In the first trailer for his upcoming new film titled, ‘The Last Stand,’Schwarzenegger plays a Sheriff on his day off that gets a call out of the blue that a heavily armed drug cartel is heading to his town.
As we’ve come to expect from Schwarzenegger movies, there are plenty of explosions and cheesy one-liners. After an explosion throws him through the door of a bakery, the baker asks him, “How are you, Sheriff?” Schwarzenegger responds, “Old.” LOL. In another scene, one of the bad guys asks him, “Who the hell are ya?” Schwarzenegger responds, “I am the Sheriff,” in the dramatic, monotone way we like.
The film also stars Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker and Jaimie Alexander.Check out this first trailer below. The film comes out on January 18, 2013.
The trailer for a new twisted comedy called “Seven Psychopaths” has just come out and it looks hilarious. In the film, a struggling screenwriter somehow becomes caught u in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends kidnap a gangster’s beloved Shih Tzu. So there’s one Shih Tzu, but who are these seven psychopaths mentioned in the title of the film? They are:
There’s also a funny scene in the trailer with ‘Precious‘ actress, Gabourey Sidibe (love her). The film, which was written and directed by Oscar-winner Martin McDonagh comes out on October 12. Check out the trailer below!
Last night, I watched a compelling trailer for “How To Survive A Plague,” a new documentary from David France. Literally, the power of this trailer moved me to tears. The AIDS epidemic that took over New York as well as the United States is one of the biggest moments in our gay history and there were some true leaders who helped paved the way to begin AIDS research. This documentary celebrates those efforts.
The film follows brave men and women who “successfully reversed the tide of an epidemic, demanded the attention of a fearful nation and stopped AIDS from becoming a death sentence. This improbable group of activists bucked oppression and, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, helping to identify promising new medication and treatments and move them through trials and into drugstores in record time,” states the YouTube channel.
A film festival and critic favorite, “the powerful story of their fight is a classic tale of empowerment and activism that has since inspired movements for change in everything from breast cancer research to Occupy Wall Street. Their story stands as a powerful inspiration to future generations, a road map, and a call to arms. This is how you change the world.” Watch the emotional and powerful trailer below.
Words cannot even describe how excited I am for this film. Ever since MGM first announced they were filming a remake of the 1984 film, “Red Dawn“, starring Patrick Swazye, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey and Lea Thompson, I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting for it to hit theaters. Sadly, the remake’s intended 2010 release date was pushed back indefinitely due to MGM’s financial troubles. Thankfully, the film is now being released later this year thanks to a deal with Open Road Films.
With Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson both being marquee names now and scoring huge blockbusters since filming “Red Dawn” a couple of years ago, it only makes financial sense the remake finally see the light of day. Entertainment Tonight received the first footage from the film to share with their viewers and it looks fantastic.
If you’re not familiar with the premise of the film, it follows a group of young patriots fighting against a foreign invasion. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, and band together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.
In the original film, the US was invaded by the Soviets and Cubans. For the remake, the film’s new villains are the Chinese army. Sensing that it might hurt distribution, producers decided to turn the invaders to North Koreans instead, via a couple of CGI changes to the flags shown in the film. It totally makes, since Chinese people and North Koreans look identical… NOT. LOL. Aside from the ridiculous nationality change (and politically incorrect), the remake looks great.
Just when you hoped Justin Timberlake was working on a new album, another movie with him begins promotion and confirmation that he is not working on a new album comes out. I like him as an actor as well, I’m just saying I want some “Sexy Back” too!

A romance starts to develop between Johnny and Gus’s daughter as well.
