The first trailer for director Brett Ratner‘s Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson in the title role, is now online.  The trailer features Hercules fighting off a lot of CGI monsters while grandiose narration builds up the big reveal of Johnson as the Greek demigod.  It’s also a bit strange since the movie was previously billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist,” and I’m pretty sure I spotted a hydra and Cerberus.  However it pans out, this looks like it could be a lot of dumb fun.

Joe 3.  The film also stars John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph FiennesPeter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina ShaykHercules opens in 3D on July 25th.

A new U.S. trailer for director Jim Jarmusch’s love story Only Lovers Left Alive, aka “the Tom Hiddleston vampire movie”, has been released online.  Hiddleston stars alongside Tilda Swinton as two vampires who have been in love for centuries.  This trailer certainly showcases an offbeat tone, but the film actually looks to be quite romantic and, surprisingly, funny.  As individuals who have been alive for a very, very long time, the principal characters have a unique outlook on life and culture and they aren’t afraid to share it.  This also looks to be a wonderful performance showcase for Hiddleston and Swinton.

Hit the jump to watch the new domestic trailer.  The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffrey WrightOnly Lovers Left Alive opens in theaters April 11th.

Japanese Trailer for SNOWPIERCER Features Plenty of New Footage

by     Posted 97 days ago

The legend of Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer is beginning to eclipse the actual movie.  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  Snowpiercer was a hit in Bong’s native South Korea, and it’s slowly rolling out to other territories.  However, behind-the-scenes wrangling continues between Bong and U.S. distributor The Weinstein Company.  Harvey Weinstein wants a shorter, more action-oriented cut, while Bong obviously wants to keep his cut intact.  The result is that we currently don’t know what we’ll get or when we’ll get it.  As we wait, new trailers continue to roll out, and a new one from Japan features plenty of fresh footage, and a heavy emphasis on the movie’s protagonist, Curtis (Chris Evans).

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko AsungSnowpiercer opens in Japan on February 7th.  Let us know what we’re missing, Japan.

A French trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer, and it provides our best look at the movie yet.  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  This trailer provides not only a clearer picture of the plot, but also tons of visual effects we haven’t seen before.  It also has Alison Pill firing an automatic weapon, so that’s fun too.  Overall, Snowpiercer looks like an exhilarating ride, but we’ll have to see if we get the original South Korean cut or a shorter, dumbed-down version The Weinstein Company wants for U.S. distribution.

TIFF 2013: ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE Review

by     Posted 222 days ago

only-lovers-left-alive-slice

The words “Jarmusch” and “vampires” were never supposed to be in the same sentence. Yet, somehow, here we are living in a world where the proto-hipster behind Down by Law and Coffee and Cigarettes has made a movie about bloodsuckers. Predictably, the movie is not a teen soap opera with fangs or a carnival of entrail-spewing carnage. Instead, it’s more of a listless, haunting, and darkly humorous experience that plays right into the director’s strengths and slips in a few genre thrills along the way for flavor. It just might even be the director’s finest film in years. Hit the jump to find out why.

New SNOWPIERCER Trailer Highlights Action of the Train and Axe Variety

by     Posted 265 days ago

Give me a futuristic science fiction premise and a stylish director, and I’m a happy moviegoer.  By the looks of it, Bong Joon-ho (The Host) delivers with Snowpiercer—and adds a nice cast to boot: Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, Ko Asung.

The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  You’ll have to take my word on the story, because the brief 47-second clip—labeled “Final Trailer” in the week leading up to the August 1 release in South Korea—focuses more on speedy train rides through a snowy mountain landscape and Evans axing a few passengers than class politics.  Still looks great.  No word on the U.S. release date yet, so stay tuned.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

A couple days ago, we got some cool images from Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer, which showcased the film’s setting, a post-apocalyptic train divided into classes.  A new trailer has been released highlighting the revolution the lower classes are bringing against the passengers at the front, and there are also new images and six new featurettes that take us even deeper into the movie.  They provide interviews with the actors, Bong, and the South Korean crew members.  Unfortunately, only the interviews with the English-speaking actors are in English—there are no English subtitles for the Korean speakers.  However, these featurettes are still worth watching, and one of them gives us our first look at Alison Pill, who we hadn’t seen in either posters or passports.  We learn that she plays a teacher in one of the upper classes of the train.

Filming Begins on Brett Ratner’s HERCULES Starring Dwayne Johnson; Revisionist Take Does Away with the Supernatural Aspect of the Character

by     Posted 309 days ago

MGM and Paramount Pictures have announced that principal photography is currently underway on director Brett Ratner’s ensemble-action film Hercules.  The film stars Dwayne Johnson as the titular demigod and is based on the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, but the official logline describes the pic as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  Making a Herclues movie without any semblance of the supernatural is a bit odd, but the story of Ratner’s film finds the titular character traveling ancient Greece with five faithful companions sometime after “the legend” that we’re familiar with.

Hit the jump to read the full official synopsis for the film.  Written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos, the pic also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Askel Hennie, and Reece RitchieHercules opens on July 25, 2014.

Behind-the-Scenes Footage from Bong Joon-ho’s SNOWPIERCER Starring Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton

snowpiercer-chris-evans-passport-slice

Over the last several months, we’ve been getting glimpses of Bong Joon-ho‘s upcoming sci-fi film, Snowpiercer.  Today, the first footage has been released via an international behind-the-scenes featurette.  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  The featurette is dubbed in Korean (or at least I assume it’s Korean since Joon-ho is South Korean), but you can still see that there’s going to be some action involved, especially on the part of an axe-wielding Chris Evans.

Hit the jump to check out the footage.  The film also stars John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung.

Nine international character posters have been released for Snowpiercer, the English-language debut of Korean director Bong Joon-ho (The Host).  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  The posters all provide the first hint of a release date by listing “Summer 2013″.  However, since these are international posters, we don’t know if that’s summer for the U.S., other countries, or both.
