The first trailer for the 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg‘s 1993 classic Jurassic Park has been released. The trailer makes great, playful use of John Williams‘ iconic score and drums up a major dose of nostalgia. Whether 3D is your thing or not, it’s gonna be incredibly hard to pass up seeing Jurassic Park on the big screen again once this thing returns to theaters. Even though it’s been 20 years, the effects actually look like they hold up pretty well (thank you, Stan Winston), and Jeff Goldblum‘s dry delivery remains spot-on. Hold on to your butts.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars Sam Neill, Richard Attenborough, Laura Dern, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Wayne Knight, and Samuel L. Jackson. Jurassic Park 3D hits theaters on April 5th, 2013.
The first trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation has gone online. While I was underwhelmed by the Entertainment Tonight sneak peek, this full trailer is actually kind of fantastic (actual trailer editors > ET editors). It’s got some stellar action, a cool story, and a chill-inducing shot featuring the White House. The story finds the Joes in deep, as the entirety of the G.I. Joe team has been killed save for a few remaining survivors. Director Jon Chu has staged some nice action sequences here, and the trailer is elevated by a nifty cut of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona, and Bruce Willis. G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens June 29th, 2012.
With filming set to begin next month, the cast of John M. Chu’s G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes is beginning to finalize. The latest addition is Joseph Mazzello (The Pacific) who is set to take on the role of 18-year-old Southern charmer Mouse. Deadline reports that Mazzello beat out a number of hopefuls that were vying for the coveted role.
The cast now includes Ray Stevenson as villain Firefly, Channing Tatum (Duke), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), Lee Byung-hun (Storm Shadow), Adrianne Palacki (Lady Jay), RZA (Blind Master), D.J. Cotrona (Flint), Elodie Young (Jinx) and Ray Park (Snake Eyes). We previously broke the news that the film will not be in 3D. G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes is set for release on August 10th, 2012.
The Pacific plays out much the way Band of Brothers did: an enhanced G.I.’s eye view of the Second World War. Executive producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks established the formula with Saving Private Ryan, combining unflinching realism with unabashed hero worship to depict events from the men on the tip of the spear. The Pacific demonstrates the power and durability of that formula, as evinced by its slew of Emmys and unmitigated critical praise. The new Blu-ray release may constitute the ideal means of watching it. Hit the jump for my full review.
The first theatrical trailer for David Fincher’s Facebook-origin story, The Social Network, is now online and it is very, very good. Thus far, I have been impressed with everything we have seen of the film, including the somewhat cryptic first two teaser trailers. Certainly on par with those, this trailer gives us our first look at live-action within the film, while maintaining the dark overtones established by Scala & Kolacny Brothers piano-choir cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.”
Needless to say, if you’ve been interested by the film thus far, you are going to like what you see after the jump. The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, future web-slinger Andrew Garfield, Joseph Mazzello, and Armie Hammer. It’s set to open later this year on October 1st.
According to Variety, HBO’s The Pacific, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks’ highly-awaited, spiritual-sequel to Band of Brothers, is set to air its first of ten parts on March 14 with a new hour-long episode set to air every Sunday through May 16th. The miniseries follows the Pacific campaign of World War II and stars James Badge Dale (24), Jon Seda (Bad Boys II), and Joseph Mazzello (Jurassic Park).
