Last night, just before the 2012 MTV Movie Awards went to air, the highly anticipated trailer for “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” finally debuted. The film is based on the high school-coming of age novel written by Stephen Chbosky who has also helmed the project as director. The story explores topics like introversion and the awkwardness that sometimes comes with being an adolescent.
The story takes place in Pittsburgh between 1991 and 1992 with lead character Charlie being a freshman in high school. The film features a star studded cast including Emma Watson, Paul Rudd and The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev.
The film will debut in the US this fall on September 14. Check out the newly debuted trailer and tell us if you’ll be checking it out this fall in the comments below.
This movie looks hilarious! The trailer for ‘The Babymakers‘ has just been released and we’ve got your first look below. Here’s the setup: When they decide that they want to have a baby, Tommy Macklin (Paul Schneider) and his wife Audrey (Olivia Munn) pregnant, they soon become aware of the reality that Tommy may be “shooting blanks.”
Amidst all of the stress, Tommy remembers that he had donated sperm to a sperm bank years ago. Why not get it back? Unfortunately for Tommy, it’s not that easy. To make matters worse, the stakes are high as he’s worried that his marriage is on the line as a result. So he does what any other sane person would do… He recruits his friends to rob the sperm bank where he had made the deposit in the past. Of course things are bound to go wrong in this very “sticky” situation.
Watch the hilarious trailer below.
You know those moments where you hear a concept for a movie and you think, “no WAY can this be an interesting movie.” This is how I felt about “Premium Rush” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The trailer for the film has just been released and already, I’ve changed my mind completely about the film. This little bicycle driven film is chalked full of action, drama and suspense and I can’t wait to check it out.
“Premium Rush” centers around the messenger courier service on bikes in New York. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is dispatched to pick up and deliver an envelope that is premium rush. When he gets to the college and picks up the envelope, the girl is a little suspicious. Sudden, Levitt is stopped by an undercover cop who demands to be given the mysterious envelope which is to be delivered to Chinatown. When Levitt refuses to give it up it begins a wild cat and mouse chase through the length of Manhattan only for Joseph to discover the envelopes dangerous contents. I know, it sounds a little silly but wait until you watch the trailer. It looks pretty exciting!
SHIVERS! Seriously, Goosebumps flooded my body watching the first trailer for the highly-anticipated musical adaptation of “Les Miserables“. It already looks better than the 1998 version starring Liam Neeson, Claire Danes, Geoffrey Rush and Uma Thurman. Mind you, that one didn’t feature any singing while this new version will have plenty of it. The trailer alone is dominated with Anne Hathaway tackling one of the musical’s most beloved songs- “I Dreamed A Dream“.
Set during the June Rebellion in France, the film is based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo. His work has inspired many stage productions, television adaptations and film versions, but the new one starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and the aforementioned Hathaway is the first big-screen production of the Broadway musical.
Landing the iconic role of Éponine is relative newcomer Samantha Barks. She beat out Taylor Swift, Evan Rachel Wood, Lea Michele and Scarlett Johansson who were all reported to be considered for the role. Barks previously played the role at the 25th Anniversary concert and in the West End production from 2010–2011. Check out the first ever trailer for “Les Miserables” below.
The movie trailer for ‘Lay The Favorite‘ has just debuted and we’ve got your first look below! I wasn’t actually aware that this was even in the works, but I have to say that it’s a great ensemble. The film stars Bruce Willis, Rebecca Hall, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Joshua Jackson among others. The film is based on Beth Raymer’s memoir of the same title, and follows a young, free-spirited woman (Hall) as she ventures into the legal and illegal world of sports gambling.
Beth leaves her dancing job at a Florida strip club to become a Las Vegas cocktail waitress – which she felt was her only option for a few reasons. Then comes Dink (Yes, that’s his name) played by Willis. He’s a pro sports bettor and sees an opportunity to use Beth in his betting schemes. She seems to have a knack for it and he refers to her as his good luck charm… as opposed to his jinx of a wife, Tulp (Jones). Naturally, Tulip is a tad jealous of the attention Beth is getting which isn’t good.
Beth then decides to move to NYC to take advantage of another risky gambling opportunity. Things are over her head when a certain gamble jeopardizes her boyfriend’s freedom (Jackson). She’s left with no choice but to team up with Dink & the crew once again so that she can get out of it. Check out the first trailer below.
I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie with Ethan Hawke, so when I saw this trailer for ‘The Woman In The Fifth,’ it definitely piqued my interest.
Hawke plays Tom Ricks, an American writer who moves to Paris to be closer to his young daughter who is living with his estranged ex-wife. Completely broke, he gets a job as a night guard for a local crime boss. Situated in a basement office, his only task is to push a button when a bell rings. In the quiet of the night, he hopes that he’ll find focus for writing his new novel. During the day, his life starts to get a little more exciting when he become romantically involved with a widow named Margit (Kristin Scott Thomas). The mysterious woman sets the following rules for their meetings: she will only see him at her apartment in the fifth arrondissement, at 5pm sharp, twice a week and he should ask no questions about her work or her past life. Very bizarre.
Things start to get intense when people around Tom start dying. He starts to believe that a dark force has entered his life that punishes anyone who has recently done him wrong. After he is accused of murdering his neighbor, he uses his weekly visits to Margit’s place as an alibi. The problem is he learns that she hasn’t lived at this address for the past 15 years. WFT? Check out the trailer below.
If you’re like me and love the thrill of a scary movie, then this one’s for you. What looks like a cross between ‘Paranormal Activity‘ and ‘Nightmare On Elm Street‘ comes a new thriller called ‘The Apparition‘ and we’ve got your first look at the trailer.
When some spooky things start to happen in their home, young couple Kelly (Ashley Greene – Twilight) and Ben (Sebastian Stan – Gossip Girl) discover they are being haunted by something that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The concept comes from the scientific theory that paranormal events are products of the human mind and ghosts only exist because we believe in them. Well, some bozos decided to put this theory to the test and unfortunately were able to create their worst nightmare. “Once you believe, you die,” the film warns.
The apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural, Patrick (Tom Felton – “Draco Malfoy from ‘Harry Potter‘), but even with his help they may already be too late to survive. Check out the trailer below! The film comes out at the end of the summer on August 24.
The movie trailer for the upcoming film, ‘The Great Gatsby‘ has just debuted, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Toby McGuire. We’ve got your first look below!
Here’s the plot: The story follows would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey McGuire) as he leaves the Midwest and heads to NYC in the spring of 1922. This is a time of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. In pursuit of his own American Dream, he ends up next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire named Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her unfaithful husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As he takes it all in, he is able to write a story about impossible love, incorruptible dreams and tragedy, holding a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
The movie looks really intriguing and from what I’ve seen and the cast involved, I’m sure that you’ll see “Gatsby” in the Oscar nominations. The film hits theatres in December. Check out the trailer below.
