The first full trailer for the upcoming A&E series Bates Motel has been released.  The show comes from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night LightsKerry Ehrin and serves as a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film Psycho, with Freddie Highmore as a young Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother.  We previously saw a couple of moody teasers that were more than a little reminiscent of Twin Peaks, but this full trailer really ups the ante on the creepiness.  The second half of the trailer actually plays more like a featurette, with the cast and crew discussing the series.  Farmiga notes that they’re not remaking Psycho, they’re “using it as an inspiration.”  My interest is sufficiently piqued.

Hit the jump to watch the 2-minute trailer.  The series also stars Nestor CarbonellMax ThieriotOlivia Cooke, and Mike Vogel.  Bates Motel premieres on A&E in March 2013.

First Two Teaser Trailers for A&E’s PSYCHO Prequel Series BATES MOTEL

A couple of tantalizing teaser trailers for A&E’s upcoming Psycho prequel series Bates Motel have been released.  We just recently saw a batch of images from the show that gave us a look at Freddie Highmore as the legendary Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his mother, Norma, and at the time I noted a bit of a Twin Peaks vibe.  That comparison seems even more valid after these two trailers, which tease a couple of haunting scenarios and hint that everything might not be what it seems at the eponymous Bates Motel.  The series comes from Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and Friday Night Lights alum Kelly Ehrin, so I’ve got high hopes for this one.

New Trailer for THE HOST from Writer/Director Andrew Niccol and Author Stephenie Meyer

A new trailer for The Host has gone online.  It does a solid job of setting up the plot, and sells the love-story angle hard, which is what you would expect when you bill the flick as coming from Stephanie Meyer, author of The Twilight Saga.  I’m just not sure if the sci-fi element will attract or turn off the audience the movie intends to attract.  Even though Twilight has werewolves and vampires, no one would call it anything but a romance.  Hunger Games has an easier time of selling itself as an action-adventure with a romantic subplot.  But The Host hasn’t been the literary success of either of those franchises, and without that support, I don’t know how the film will do, especially when March is so crowded with big releases.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Jake Abel and Max IronsThe Host opens March 29, 2013.

In 1989, five minority teenagers were arrested for the rape of a white woman in New York’s Central Park.  Wrongly convicted and sentenced to prison without any physical evidence, including DNA, that tied them to the crime, the five were released after serving no less than six years in prison.  The Central Park Five, a new documentary from directors Ken and Sarah Burns and David McMahon, revisits the events surrounding this two-sided tragedy and examines the culture of racism and mob-mentality that accompanied it.  Hit the jump to see the new trailer and poster for The Central Park Five.

The first trailer for director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 has been released and it’s looking a lot darker for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) this time around. Following the events of The AvengersStark is a bit more shaken up than one would have expected.  His nightmares plague him with sleepless nights and constant fear that harm will befall the people he cares about.  And it’s looking like his greatest technological achievement will become his biggest threat.  At least until the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) makes his appearance in grand fashion (though I’m not 100% sold on his accent).

UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING Red-Band Trailer

universal-soldier-day-of-reckoning-trailer-slice

A new red-band trailer has gone online for writer/director John Hyams’ Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoningstarring Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van DammeScott Adkins and Andrei Arlovski. This trailer leans heavily on the psychological mind-fuckery that comes with being turned into a universal soldier, but it’s equally focused on the action as well.  The only downside is the intermittent blasts of seizure-inducing strobes that flicker over cast intros or quotes from movie sites.  If you can get through that without experiencing an epileptic event, then you’ll be sure to enjoy the brutality of this red-band trailer.  Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is available On Demand starting October 25th with a theatrical release on November 30th.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

Save the Date also stars Geoffrey Arend, Martin Starr and Mark Webber and will be available on a variety of online platforms starting November 8th, with a theatrical release beginning December 14th.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster and synopsis.

First Trailer for THE CANYONS Starring Lindsay Lohan, Porn Star James Deen and Gus Van Sant

the-canyons-trailer-slice

The first trailer has gone online for director Paul Schrader’s sexualized indie thriller, The Canyons.  Starring Lindsay Lohan, porn star James Deen and Gus Van Sant (really), The Canyons spins a tale on the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition among a group of twenty-somethings and a chance event that unravels all of their lives.  The trailer, presented in a grindhouse aesthetic with appropriate music and filters applied, introduces us to the characters and a sense of danger in the film, but gives little in the way of plot.  The Canyons, written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) also stars Nolan Funk and Amanda Brooks.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer.

First Trailer for SEAL TEAM SIX: THE RAID ON OSAMA BIN LADEN, AKA CODE NAME: GERONIMO

by     Posted 1 year, 201 days ago

seal-team-six-the-raid-on-osama-bin-laden-slice

The first trailer for SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden has gone online.  With as historical an event as the death of bin Laden, you would think that either this film or Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty would have provided a sense of tension, raised stakes or even a question of moral ambiguity that surely came with the operation.  Neither trailer gives a sense of this, so at least SEAL Team Six isn’t out of its league with Bigelow’s bigger budget.

SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden, aka Code Name: Geronimostars Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodriquez, Xzibit, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas, Kenneth Miller, Robert Knepper and William Fichtner. Written by Kendall LampkinSEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden premieres on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday November 4th, just before election day.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

First Trailer for Rob Zombie’s THE LORDS OF SALEM

by     Posted 1 year, 202 days ago

lords-of-salem-trailer-slice

Directed by Rob Zombie, the first trailer for The Lords of Salem has gone online.  The film follows a DJ’s unintentional reawakening of a 300-year-old coven of witches.  Zombie’s movies are usually over the top with gore and schlock (just the way I like it), but the use of Mozart’s “Requiem” accompanying this teaser trailer comes across as a bit more subtle.  Coming in just under two minutes, the trailer hints at what became of the 17th century coven, how they returned to contemporary times and what consequences that brings.  It’s interesting, but perhaps not enough to win over new fans. Starring Sheri Moon ZombieClint Howard, Bruce Davison and Sid Haig, The Lords of Salem opens later this year.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
