Happy Belated Trailer Tuesday! Say Hi to Troll Hunter!

“Found footage” movies are all the rage in Hollywood. You can go back as far as The Blair Witch Project, but most recently we’ve seen Cloverfield, Quarantine, Paranormal Activity and Paranormal Activity 2, as well as The Last Exorcism and the upcoming Apollo 18. I love movies like this, so it’s no surprise to me our friends in Norway have become fond of the genre, so much that writer/director André Øvredal has passed up zombies, vampires, poltergeists and aliens for something

The Change-Up Trailer Made Me Spit Out the Precious

And by the precious, I mean my 16 ounce sugar-free Red Bull. Maybe you don’t like it, but it is precious…to…me. I digress. The Change-Up, sliding into theaters on August 5, 2011, looks like Freaky Friday got in a head-on collision with a porno movie, and for a guy like me, who loves Urban Dictionary.com, this movie looks like pure win. Be forewarned though, the trailer below is of the redband variety, which means your boss might not appreciate words

Circle July 29, 2011 on your Calendar, Cowboys and Aliens is Going to Rock

Summer 2011 is going to be quite beefy, but between all the superheroes and the Autobots and Decepticons, the movie I’m most excited to see is Cowboys and Aliens, which hits theaters on July 29. How could this not be nothing but pure win? It stars Harrison Ford (Morning Glory), Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), Sam Rockwell (Conviction), Paul Dano (Knight and Day) and Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers), plus it’s directed by John Favreau,

Trailer Tuesday: Crazy Stupid Love

Movies like Crazy Stupid Love, due in theaters on July 29, 2011, make me nervous, especially when I take a liking for the trailer. 99 percent of the time they simply cannot replicate the two and a half minute euphoria they achieved in the trailer, but, as I with Warrior, I’m giving this movie the benefit of the doubt based solely on the cast. Steve Carell (Dinner for Schmucks), Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine), Julianne Moore (The Kids Are Alright), Emma

Warrior Trailer Looks Like UFC Version of The Fighter

And that’s not a bad thing. At all. The Fighter was an Academy Award darling, nominated for six awards and winning in the best supporting actor and actress categories (Christian Bale and Melissa Leo). This movie, Warrior, has the same gritty, blue-collar feel, but instead of boxing we get plopped into the octagon, the brutal, blood and broken bones world of mixed martial arts (MMA), i.e. the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). And while we’ve seen that style of fighting in

New Trailer for The Hangover: Part II has me Pining for May 26!

You know what makes the first full-length trailer for The Hangover: Part II so funny? Two things: First, I don’t ever not laugh when Zach Galifianakis’ character, Alan, says, “When a monkey nibbles on a weenus, it’s funny in any language.” And second, the trailer, which you can watch after the jump, was recently pulled from theaters because of said quote and said scene referencing oral sex from a primate. That’s right, folks. Snuggle up and smell the debauchery at Andy

Trailer Tuesday: New Captain America Trailer Erases My Doubts

I’ve always been more of a Batman and Superman kind of guy, so I never had much interest in superheroes like Captain America, Wolverine, The Hulk and the whole X-Men gang, although I will admit a fond interest for Wonder Woman, especially the cleavtastic version embodied by Lynda Carter in the mid to late 1970s. Even though I enjoyed Iron Man and its sequel, as well as The Incredible Hulk, I’ve been recalcitrant to embrace the glut of superhero movies

Trailer Tuesday: Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides

I’m sorry, but for all the Tom Foolery that was Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, I can’t help but get juiced for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides for a few reasons: One, it’s freaking Pirates of the Hawaii Caribbean, folks! Two, it’s one of the only roles where I actually enjoy – strike that, laud – Johnny Depp as being a good actor. Three, two words: Penelope Cruz. Yum. And finally, it’s summer! Yep, I’m just

Larry Crowne Trailer Makes Me Smile

Amongst all the talk of nuclear reactor meltdowns, earthquakes, tsunamis and civil war in Libya, a trailer for this summer’s Larry Crowne hit the web yesterday, and I have to admit, I’m sold. Maybe a leprachaun spiked my Red Bull, or maybe it’s the bright blue skies hanging over Northern Utah today, but I doubt it. It would seem the chemistry and the comedy shared between Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks shines through full-force in this romantic dramedy, which is also

Bridesmaids Trailer = The Hangover, but with Chicks!

This is the first time I’ve seen or heard anything about the upcoming (May 13, 2011) comedy, Bridesmaids, and odds are this movie will blow six ways from Sunday, but I’m holding out hope this flick will make me laugh as much as the trailer did. This looks like the chick version of The Hangover. I suppose it was only a matter of time before the soulless, unimaginative drones in Hollywood belched out a concept like Bridesmaids. Still, I cling
