The last update we had on Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly we watched the fantastic trailer. Here we have the poster and, well, it’s less than inspiring.

The end of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim panel at San Diego Comic Con had a pretty brilliant surprise yesterday when Monsters director Gareth Edwards made an appearance with some very special test footage. Yes, Edwards had a brief clip of his latest feature – Godzilla. Read more »
This not the new Prometheus poster, by the way. This is the teaser poster from before Christmas when the marketing for the film was still going for the subtle and mysterious, not the “let’s show them EVERYTHING so there’s no drama or surprises left when they go to the cinema to see it” we’re getting now. Maybe, just maybe, we’re not being shown everything and Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi will shock and surprise like his original Alien did. We live in hope.
The Avengers hype machine rolls on, this week delivering some cool posters of the individual members. I shall pepper them throughout the article as we deal with the infinitely more interesting news coming out of SXSW. Joss Whedon was in Austin, Texas this week along with director Drew Goddard promoting upcoming film The Cabin In The Woods. It’s been getting great reviews but, of course, talk soon turned to Whedon’s The Avengers. Read more »
Wes Anderson’s films have always had distinctive posters. Rushmore and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou stand out in particular. I absolutely love them and I feel the same about the new poster for Moonrise Kingdom. It has a fairytale sense of wonder coupled Anderson’s (un)usual charm. Here’s hoping that it perfectly represents the film. Read more »
Yep, it’s there on the brand new poster. Here in the UK Marvel’s The Avengers will be known as Avengers Assemble. As Marvel have failed to come out and say anything, most people are assuming this down to legal issues with The Avengers TV series starring John Steed and Emma Peel. It would be surprising if Marvel changed it to avoid confusion with the ’60s series because I don’t think many people would make that mistake. That said, some folk really did ask for refunds after seeing The Artist because it was a silent movie…
That’s enough of that, though. That’s not why you’re here. You guys want to see the fantastic new Avengers trailer that we rumoured about last week, don’t you? Well, here it is! Read more »
Cars aside, it’s an almost stone-cold guarantee that Pixar’s output will be of the utmost quality and the highest standard of storytelling. I have no doubt in my mind that Brave will carry on that fine tradition. The poster is intriguing (check out the big ol’ bear hiding behind the ‘R’), but if that doesn’t sell it to you, we have a brief clip down below. Have a look. Read more »
Sure, it’s fun to talk about The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises but sometimes you need a bit of a change. Something that will challenge and/or chasten you. I’m pretty sure that Beyond The Black Rainbow is one of those films. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer below. Read more »
So, if you didn’t know, I spent the festive period with my parents. It was all well and good except for one fact – they’d turn off the precious wi-fi at the end of the day. This is was massively frustrating for me as I am addicted to the internet and need near constant 24 hour access or I freak out. I mean, c’mon, what if I miss something funny written of Facebook, or can’t get instantly outraged by the latest thing on Twitter? Exactly.
Anyway, to get myself through the long nights, my methadone was watching some DVDs. Of the many films I watched, two were Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Royal Tenenbaums. The Life Aquatic is the film that made me fall in love with Anderson’s films, such a brilliant mix of melancholy, wonder, and adventure. And when I watched Tenenbaums it had me in floods of tears from the get-go. I’d seen it before, but this time it crushed me. So heartbreakingly sad. It was amazing. By now I guess you’re wondering why the hell I’m telling you this. I’ll tell you why – it was a lengthy and meandering intro inform you of the release of the trailer to Wes Anderson’s (yeah, that guy again) latest movie Moonrise Kingdom. Shall we take a look?
