Of all the “darker” young adult series to emerge in the wake of the “Twilight” novels, none has caught on like Suzanne Collins‘ “Hunger Games” trilogy. And unlike “Twilight,” these novels have actually received praise outside of the teenage girl demographic. As such, “The Hunger Games” is one of 2012′s most anticipated films, so right on schedule [...]
No way that “The Dark Knight Rises” gets to have all the fun. Sony Pictures has just released its own teaser trailer for next summer’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and they’ve even one-upped Christopher Nolan’s film by keeping things distinctly less cryptic. Get ready to revisit Spidey’s origins, friends.
Millions of people have already seen it as it played before “Harry Potter” this weekend, but now you can watch the teaser for “The Dark Knight Rises” over and over and over and over again and pause at those quick flashes of Tom Hardy as Bane.
It’s not easy being green, nor is it easy making green. This week, Trailer Wednesday features the Jason Segel-led revitalization of “The Muppets” and the story of how Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane challenged the baseball system with a low-cost strategy.
Anticipated novel adaptations comprise today’s Trailer Wednesday. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1″ will mark the second movie of 2011 to be one of a two-parter based on the last chapter of a book series after “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2″ next month. Also, David Fincher’s Hollywood adaptation of the [...]
In terms of trailer release dates, today’s offerings demonstrate two extremes: launching a marketing campaign that begins about two months before your film comes out and issuing a teaser seven months in advance. Fortunately for both the R-rated comedy “Horrible Bosses” and animated action/adventure film “The Adventures of Tintin” look good upon first glance.
Nope, this is not one movie about regretted one-night stands with people you don’t know; it’s two: one about Shakespeare’s possible identity and another about Steve Carell re-learning how to date from a ripped Ryan Gosling after his wife leaves him. — Anonymous A thriller about who might have actually written Shakespeare’s work sounds intriguing, [...]
I don’t think our trailer options today could get more opposite. The first is Paul W.S. Anderson’s nothing-less-than-explosive take on “The Three Musketeers” (to be presented in 3D) and Woody Allen’s film for 2011, which extends his recent European streak to Paris.
Trailer Wednesday is about to give some rare love to the romantic comedy, but I wouldn’t toss either of these films squarely under that title. “Bridesmaids” has been earning glowing festival reviews, being described as the female “The Hangover” and “Larry Crowne” stars Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, which is anything but typical.
Nope, it’s not some cheesy ’50s rock ‘n roll band name, it’s this week’s trailer selection. Talk about polar opposites: “Super 8″ brings us a supernatural sci-fi period piece from the mind of J.J. Abrams with the help of Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment, whereas “The Smurfs” so shamelessly blends CGI and live-action with hopes [...]
So the return of Trailer Wednesday last month turned out to not exactly be the permanent return, but things should be changing around as more summer movie look to dive in to full-on promotion. With just two and a half months until “Kung Fu Panda 2,” the first full-length trailer has finally arrived and June [...]
I don’t know whether to consider this first teaser for “The Hangover: Part II” a trailer or a public service announcement that comedy’s biggest sequel in recent memory is coming in a few months. If you didn’t know that Memorial Day weekend would bring us the sequel to cinema’s most successful R-rated comedy ever, then [...]
At last — the return of Trailer Wednesday. We’ve had a really slow beginning to 2011 as far as major movie trailers go. There have been some great ones or some interesting second trailers or TV spots, but nothing totally new. Until now, thanks to the sought-after talents of comedian Russell Brand.
Who says your trailer has to debut during the Super Bowl? 20th Century Fox has finally released the trailer for this summer’s “X-Men: First Class” starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as a young Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr (Magneto). The film was directed by Matthew Vaughn and produced in part by original “X-Men” director [...]
It’s Johnny Depp Appreciation Day here at Movie Muse, but very very unofficially. Turns out that the two most interesting new trailers both feature the international superstar: “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and the animated desert Western, “Rango.”
