Movie News: Skyfall Trailer!

I've been waiting for the full trailer of the new 007 film for a while now and it's finally arrived! Sam Mendes was an interesting choice for director, but judging by this two and half minute taster, he's done and incredible job.  Everything you'd expect from a Bond movie and more. 

In recent years, one of the only things that has really let these films down is a dodgy villain. The best 007 movies have the greatest villains; Goldfinger, Dr No, View To A Kill and any of the films starring a cat stroking Blofeld! Getting Javier Bardem on board to play the villain in Skyfall was a stroke of genius, as anyone who's seen No Country For Old Men will attest to. I'm not sure about the blond hair though, he reminds me of Christopher Walken as Zorin in A View To A Kill...not that that's a bad thing!

Anyway, take a look at the trailer below and let me know what you think by commenting below.

From the moment I heard Zack Snyder was directing the new Superman film and Christopher Nolan was producing I knew it was going to be something very special. Man of Steel isn't being released for another year and there has hardly been any information leaked about the plot, the villain or the look of the film. Even at ComicCon last week, neither Zack Snyder or Henry Cavill (Superman) would confirm whether the villain would be General Zod, although the chances are it probably will be.

Anyway, we now have out first look at this movie as Warner Bros have released not one, but two teaser trailers. They're both exactly the same, apart from one is voiced by Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent) and the other by Russell Crowe (Jor-El). As they both play the Father role to Superman it's a nice touch and they both have different words of wisdom to impart.

My favourite is the Russell Crowe version, so that's the one you can watch below.  If this trailer is anything to go by,  Man of Steel is going to be really good, if not incredible. With the Batman trilogy at an end, I'd love to see a new Superman trilogy emerge. We'll find out just how good it is on June 14th 2013.

Here's the Costner version if you'd like to watch that too!

Trailer of the Week: TOTAL RECALL!

The original Total Recall was a great film, sure it had its faults, but it was a proper thrill ride.  Arnie at his best, Michael Ironside being evil, an arse kicking Sharon Stone, what more did you need? Brilliant. 

So, when I heard they were going to remake it with Colin Farrell, I thought it was going to be a big mistake. That was until I watched the full trailer the other day. It looks superb! If you don't believe, take a look at the trailer below. It's about time Colin Farrell got a decent part and reminded everyone he can hold his own when it comes to action movies. 

Total Recall hits cinemas in the UK in August.

Movie News: HUNGER GAMES 2!

Whilst The Hunger Games continues to make a gazillions dollars around the world, it's no surprise a sequel is already in the works and even has a release date of November 22nd 2013.  Hunger Games: Catching Fire will begin filming at the end of the summer this year and will see the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence reprise her role as Katniss Everdeen. 


This trailer has been out for a while, but I really liked it and wanted to get it up on the blog.  It's no secret I'm a big Bruce Willis fan and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has starred in some of my favourite films over the last few years, most noticeably Inception

The film is Looper and it's a sort of a mash up of Time Cop and Jumper, which definitely gets my attention as they're both on my guilty pleasures movie list. The only thing that worries me is the release date at the end of September.  If this was an amazing film wouldn't it have been given a summer release? Perhaps this summer is too full and they didn't want it to get lost in the mix? I hope that's the reason. Occasionally, Bruce Willis makes some crap films (Cop Out, Surrogates) and I don't want this to be his next one. If the trailer's anything to go by, it should be brilliant.

Check it out below and let me know what you think.  I have a feeling this could be one of the surprise hits of 2012. 


Not too much longer to wait until The Dark Knight Rises hits cinemas this summer.  Over the last few weeks the hype has been continuing to build with more teasers and posters being released.  Well here's one you may not have seen yet.  It's a simple sexy image, but it says a lot and I have no doubt there are thousands of comic book fan boys out there with a new screen saver.

Take a look at the poster below and make sure you check out one of the most highly anticipated films of the year when The Dark Knight Rises is released in the UK on July 20th 2012.

Trailer of the Week: PROMETHEUS

There are some great films being released this year, but Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, Prometheus has to be the one I'm anticipating the most. I've been a fan of Scott ever since I first saw Blade Runner and he is arguably one of the best directors this country has ever produced.

So far I've liked the trailers, but they haven't blown me away.  That all changed however, when I watched the brand new trailer below. It is incredible! 

Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.
