In one week, The Wolf Pack returns to theaters for their final adventure, and now one final red band trailer for The Hangover Part III goes back to the beginning to remind everyone of the chaos that led them to this. Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis are more desperate than ever as they find themselves forced to track down Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) for a ruthless criminal mastermind (John Goodman). The cool thing is there are some familiar faces from the first film thrown in to make this conclusion a nice bookend to this surprise comedy franchise. Will The Wolf Pack survive? Watch below!
After writing Tangled and Crazy Stupid Love, a script from writer Dan Fogelman certainly gets my attention, and that's part of the reason this teaser trailer for Last Vegas excites me. It's essentially The Hangover for geriatrics as Michael Douglas plays an old ladies man who calls three childhood friends (Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Robert De Niro) together for a wild bachelor party in Vegas before he settles down with a girl half his age. It's a short teaser, but the last scene with Freeman debating with himself about dancing after having some alcoholic drinks with Red Bull is pretty great. Watch below!
After the footage from WonderCon for Guillermo del Toro's summer blockbuster Pacific Rim surfaced, audiences should already be sold on this epic battle of human-driven robots fighting skyscraper sized monsters. But just in case that didn't do it for you, a new trailer has come along with some exposition to explain the struggle against these giant creatures. But the real star is the amazing special effects as the Jaeger robots deal crushing blows to the Kaiju creatures, and these monstrosities just dish it right back. While I wish there was more of the human side of the story highlighted, this is still a great trailer. Watch!
It's not exactly a trailer, but Disney just release this gorgeous new promo for their Cars spin-off Planes (which was not created with Pixar Animation), that has some truly stunning animated landscapes and scenery. Using a lot of the flying sequences from the film (of which there are many when the main characters are actually airplanes), the promo uses a very uplifting score by the film's composer, Mark Mancina (Training Day, August Rush). The promo really makes it feel like the film has some heart, but the sneak peek with all the dialogue still has me a little leery. Maybe Disney can pull this one off without Pixar?
"Did you hear that?" Holy sh*t get ready to scream! Magnet Releasing has debuted an crazy intense and insanely terrifying full red band trailer for V/H/S 2, the sequel to the found footage indie horror anthology hit V/H/S from just last year. We saw this at the Sundance Film Festival midnight premiere in January and went totally nuts for it, since it's leaner but much scarier and bloodier than the first one in every way. This trailer definitely uses that red band tag the fullest and does show a few of the bigger reveals (that I think are based saved for the in-movie experience). But it is a hell of trailer for one of my favorite new horror series.
It's time to shake your tail feathers again. After Blue Sky's musical animated film Rio became a surprise hit, the blue macaws voiced by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, along with a colorful supporting cast voiced by the likes of will.i.am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Jamie Foxx and more, are back for Rio 2. The film doesn't arrive until next spring, but a teaser trailer has arrived that will have kids dancing in the theaters and tapping their feet. It's a cute little trailer, but as someone who wasn't impressed by the first film, this one has some work to do to get me excited. Watch it!
"Don't know how many times I've been crossed off the list and left for dead." This is a big year for Vin Diesel. Not only does Fast & Furious 6 hit theaters next weekend, but the long awaited sci-fi sequel Riddick is finally coming this fall, and it looks pretty damn cool. Sometimes the visual effects look a little spotty, but then there are some really fantastically rendered creatures and spectacular action. Plus, Diesel just looks like a real bad ass in this trailer. It's almost like this movie is Predator, but with Riddick as the infamous hunter. As someone who's not really a Diesel fan, this movie definitely has my attention now. Watch below!
The end is almost here for The Wolf Pack with the release of The Hangover Part III just over a week away. Recently the film decided to open in theaters everywhere a day early in order to get a head start on the Fast & Furious 6 which hits the same weekend. Now a new featurette has arrived with a bunch of footage and interviews with Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and more as they wrap up the end of this crazy comedy franchise. There's some great new pieces with John Goodman and Ken Jeong. This won't have to do much to be better than The Hangover Part II, but hopefully it goes out with a bang. Watch!
Though Peter Strickland's horror film Beberian Sound Studio has already seen release in the United Kingdom, IFC Midnight is bringing this promising gem that has played the Toronto International Film Festival, the New York Film Festival and Fantastic Fest to the United States next month. Toby Jones stars in this stylish, psychological thriller that looks and feels like it could have been made in the 70s in addition to have the story set in the middle of the decade. With truly terrifying sound work and trippy, haunting visuals in this first trailer, the film looks like an incredible work of art and horror all in one. Watch below!
"I never know what the future holds, just like everyone else." Earlier in the day we featured the very first international (UK) trailer for Richard Curtis' About Time, his new romantic comedy featuring time travel. Domhnall Gleeson stars and Rachel McAdams (in another time travel movie) plays his love interest, plus Bill Nighy his father. There's some fantastic lines of dialogue in this (Curtis is a superb writer) and I can't wait to see it, but I much prefer the international trailer to this one in many ways. This trailer is just a bit too generic, and oversells the actors and some dialogue, but not so much the heartfelt story. Take a look!
With the release of World War Z just over a month away, Paramount Pictures is making the effort to begin a viral campaign (no pun intended) for the zombie apocalypse film with a public service announcement warning of an epidemic that has been dubbed Crisis Zero. As part of the effort to keep the word "zombie" out of the marketing and hype surrounding the film, it appears this global threat is being treated as some sort of unknown health condition, which is essentially how the world would address such a disaster anyway. However, upon following the website, this appears to be a United Kingdom centric viral campaign. Watch!
Tomorrow the early fan sneak peeks of Star Trek Into Darkness hit the big screen at 8pm, and then the anticipated sequel from director J.J. Abrams hits theaters everywhere on Thursday, May 16th. That means the director is making the publicity rounds, and last night Abrams stopped by "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart. And since the host of the show is a true geek and longtime Star Wars fan, there's a great debate between the two personalities about George Lucas' iconic saga versus the longer running Star Trek legacy. Plus, the bonus part of the interview that didn't air on TV is great for fans of sci-fi, films and just good fun.
"I hope I see you again?" "You will. My whole life depends on it." Wow this looks amazing. I'm a sucker for a heartfelt, wonderful Richard Curtis story and this time he's outdone himself. Curtis' latest is a film called About Time, a love story about a man who learns he can time travel and uses that to go back and get things right in his life. It has a feeling of Notting Hill meets Groundhog Day, but with all of its own quirks. Mainly that Domhnall Gleeson stars along with Rachel McAdams. There are so many wonderful, sweet, funny, nervous moments in this trailer. I cannot wait to see this. Everything I was hoping for and so much to love.
Right now Iron Man 3 is just $50 million shy of hitting $1 billion worldwide, and it should hit that milestone by the end of the week. In the meantime, for those who have already seen the film (and even those who haven't), we have a few cool looks behind the scenes at the visual effects put to use in the Marvel blockbuster. One video dives behind the scenes of an effects heavy action sequence while another shows how part of the plane sequence featured in previous promotional materials was pieced together. But one of the more surprising sequences is a short and sweet shot of James Badge Dale that didn't even look like a visual effects shot on the big screen. That last video has a minor spoiler, so be wary. Watch them below!
