Without a doubt, Kit Harington’s abs were the star of the first Pompeii teaser. Now it’s his gorgeous curly locks that I find hypnotic. Even as Mount Vesuvius is blowing her top off, his mane looks fantastic. Not even all of Mother Nature’s power could make it look awful. I would kill for that beautiful head of hair. Enough about my hair obsession.
The first full-length trailer for the historical epic has just been released. Set in 79 A.D., the film tells the story of the residents of Pompeii before the molten fires consume them all. Naturally, since it’s a big-budget Hollywood flick, there is a love story that’s front and center. Harington plays a slave-turned-gladiator named Milo who falls in love with a noblewoman played by Emily Browning. Will he get the girl? Probably, but only for a few moments before the volcano erupts burying them in a pile of ash and pumice.
Pompeii also stars Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Jared Harris. It opens in theaters February 21, 2014. Check out the trailer below.
No joke. In the two minute-long clip, Kellan Lutz utters just one line and it occurs about halfway through. All the dialogue is left for the supporting players to deliver. I’m not sure it bodes well when the title character is practically mute. However, I’m not complaining about all the eye candy Lutz is serving. Dude is looking extremely jacked in the new trailer. If you like 300, Gladiator and Spartacus, I’m sure the Renny Harlin-directed film will be up your alley.
Set in Ancient Greece, Hercules who is born out of wedlock, must choose between following his destiny or his true love, the Princess of Crete (Gaia Weiss). Just one slight problem. She’s been promised to his own brother. Because of his feelings, his stepfather sells him into slavery.Through harrowing battles and gladiator-arena death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land. It’s all so Herculean ;)
Hercules: The Legend Begins hits theaters on January 10, 2014. A competing Hercules film directed by Brett Ratner and starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is also due out next year in July. It’s interesting that not much from that film has surfaced online. Things that make you go hmmm. Check out the new trailer below.
Better watch the trailer while you can. When the film uploaded a sex scene on YouTube weeks ago, it was immediately pulled down for being too graphic. The movie trailer is far more explicit than that previous clip and it’s still on the online video service. I predict that won’t be the case for too much longer.
Nymphomaniac recounts the sexual history of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after being found beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard). He brings her home where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
Lars von Trier’s upcoming sex epic premieres in Copenhagen on Christmas Day. The film also stars Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman and Willem Dafoe. Check out the rapidly-cut NSFW trailer below.
Based on Mara Leveritt’s 2002 book of the same name, Devil’s Knot tells the true story of the savage murders of three young children in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. Due to the brutal nature of the crime, the community and police department were convinced the murders were the work of a satanic cult. Three teenagers known as the West Memphis Three were falsely accused of killing the boys and subsequently sentenced to life in prison.
Devil’s Knot first premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Acclaimed Canadian director Atom Egoyan helms the film which stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. The former plays a mother of one of the murdered boys, while the latter plays a private investigator. Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan, Stephen Moyer, Amy Ryan and Alessandro Nivola round out the cast. The movie gets a wide release on January 24, 2014. Check out the first trailer below.
The world ‘epic’ gets tossed around as much as ‘amazing’ these days, but there is no other word to perfectly describe the first trailer for Noah. Not only does it have a stellar cast but it has Darren Aronofsky behind the camera. Love everything he’s done, especially Pi. Also, being raised Catholic, Noah’s Ark was one of my favorite stories from the Bible.
Paramount Pictures’ $130 million biblical epic stars Russell Crowe as the titular character. He’s joined by Oscar-winners Jennifer Connelly as Noah’s wife Naameh and Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah. In terms of young blood, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman play Noah’s children. Check out the trailer below. It’s Aronofsky’s first film since Black Swan. Noah hits theaters March 28, 2014.
It’s definitely a big movie news day today. In addition to Malificent and Fifty Shades of Grey news, Divergent released a brand new trailer and it’s their most intense yet. I wonder if the studio is trying to steal a bit of Catching Fire’s thunder or simply riding the wave. With The Hunger Games sequel out in certain markets, Katniss fever is at an all-time high.
The new trailer gives us a deeper look into Shailene Woodley’s character Tris Prior as she prepares for her virtue test. There’s more peeks into the actual test and her training when she finds out she’s a Divergent. Also, we get our first look at Ashley Judd as her mom and even more scenes of the fabulous Kate Winslet. I admit, I’m mostly interested in the film due to Winslet. Just adore her. Check out the trailer below.
ANGELINA.IS.EVERYTHING!!! I predict her turn as the villainous titular character will be the archetype for all future evil queens. Too bad Julia Roberts didn’t have a chance to study Jolie before starring in that awful Mirror, Mirror debacle. I stopped watching after 20 minutes. I rarely ever do that. It was that bad.
Disney just debuted the first trailer for the live action Sleeping Beauty film. In all fairness, the clip is more of a teaser than an actual trailer. It just gives a peak at the gorgeous visuals that we can expect and how deliciously evil Mrs. Brad Pitt will be, but with no actual plot details.
Maleficent opens in May 2014. It also features Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Juno Temple, Sharlto Copley and that sexy Brenton Thwaites. Check out the teaser trailer below.
James Franco and Mila Kunis just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Should Ashton Kutcher be jealous? In between filming Date Night and Oz the Great and Powerful, the two filmed the drama Tar. It’s their very own cinematic trilogy.
The film chronicles different parts of Pulitzer Prize winner C.K. Williams‘ life told through his poems. Flashbacks of his childhood, his teens, college years, to when he meets and marries his wife, Catherine (Kunis) and the birth of his children and parenthood. The film is narrated by different versions of Williams (Franco, Henry Hopper, Jordan March, Zachary Unger), depicting the different aspects of Williams through the years.
Tar was written and directed by twelve New York University film students. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff and Bruce Campbell. It premiered on November 16, 2012 at the Rome Film Festival. Though no US release date has been announced, the first trailer just debuted. Check it out below.
