A Trailer for Both Gentlemen and Broncos

Jared Hess. A man birthed from the Mormon Movie massacre of 2002-2004 and shot from the cannon of obscurity to cultural zeitgeist with Napoleon Dynamite. A man subsequently handed the reigns to an underrated and unappreciated Jack Black Luchador comedy from Paramount and then…. silence. Until now! Jared Hess is back with the comedy Gentlemen Broncos– the epic tale of a young sci-fi writer’s quest to overcome the plagiarizing forces of  old sci-fi writer Ronald Chevalier (as played by Flight

Legion Unleashes Angels Right in Your Face

The Bible can be creepy. Take Revelations, with its symbolic dragons, falling stars, blood moon, apocalyptic horsemen and the “God Hates Fags” guys. There’s also the story of Jesus’ run-in with a guy who’s possessed. Jesus asks his name and the guy responds “Legion- for we are many”. Of course, Legion subsequently gets a spiritual punch in the face, hops into a bunch of pigs who then squeal/gargle their way into a Red Sea dirt nap, but that didn’t stop

Kate Beckinsale is Yumtastic in Whiteout

I won’t make any apologies for lusting after Kate Beckinsale. I just won’t. If she showed up and my door in her get-up from Underworld and Underworld 2, I wouldn’t even bother flipping a coin. And given my wife’s love of vampire movies, I’m pretty sure she’d just let me go at that point, maybe even with a “good luck” or something like that. Irregardless, Miss Beckinsale is yummy in both the trailer (which showed before G.I. Joe: The Rise

Zombieland Red Band Trailer is All Sorts of Awesome!

October 9, 2009 is cool for two reasons now – first, it’s my dad’s birthday, and second, it’s when Zombieland with Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin hits cinemas. You know Harrelson, because he’s old and been around for awhile, but Eisenberg was curly-haired nerd recently seen in Adventureland, and Emma Stone climbed the ladder of fame in Superbad as being the only girl on the planet who would possibly sleep with Jonah Hill. And you know

Trailer Tues…Wednesday: The Lovely Bones

Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones is one of the most powerful and emotional novels I have read in my entire life. It moved me in such a way that a film version didn’t seem possible or plausible. That’s the beauty of books and reading, the “movie” is painted in our minds by virtue of our imagination, not Hollywood’s. Nevertheless, my fears were stymied when Peter Jackson (The Lord of The Rings) was tagged to direct Sebold’s masterpiece. My only concern

Eli Wants You to Read His Book

We’ve mentioned Denzel here at AATM before. While everyone loves Mr. Washington as an actor, we contend from role to role Denzel simply plays Denzel. And that’s cool with me, because I like chest-pounding Denzel and smiling-I’m-getting-frustrated-and-you’re-about-to-get-it Denzel. I like calm Denzel. I like stoic Denzel. And it’s a good thing Book of Eli has Denzel attached as star, because everyone else likes Denzel, too and post-apocalyptic movies seem to fare worse for wear than others. Which is too bad,

Alice in Wonderland Teaser Trailer

We were privy to some first-look photos last month and now the teaser trailer for Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” has hit the web. I don’t have much to say, except it looks a lot like, well, Tim Burton. That’s what I thought (and what Dan wrote) when we first saw the Entertainment Weekly pics. But guess what? That’s a good thing. My only question is this: Why a March release date? Call me skeptical, but wouldn’t this be better

It’s Like if Juno Didn’t Get Knocked Up

That Ellen Page. So cute and charming and accessible– what’s not to like? Just about zero, that’s what. And with her upcoming Drew Barrymore directed girl power film Whip It combining Page’s magnetism with the all-but-forgotten magnetism of roughchick roller derby, you can look forward to a celebration of both quirk and heartwarming life affirmation.

New District 9 Trailer Proves Film is a Must-See

I’ve seen posters and teasers for the Peter Jackson-produced and Neill Blomkamp-directed “District 9,” but until this new, longer trailer was released I had no burning desire, except for Blomkamp and Jackson’s involvement in the Halo motion picture project, to see this sci-fi flick based on Blonkamp’s short film “Alive in Joburg.” This new two minute preview paints a richer, deeper and more revealing look at what seems to be a visually stunning, tense, action-packed, intelligent film. I say this
