ANNABELLE Teaser Trailer Hints at a Potentially Terrifying Film

by     Posted 13 days ago

Last week we got the news that Annabelle, the spinoff of The Conjuring, was indeed the “Untitled New Line Horror Film” that had previously been scheduled for later this year.  Today, in what seems like a remarkably quick turnaround, we have a two minute teaser trailer for the movie.  If you’re even remotely a fan of The Conjuring this is something you’ll want to check out (though it should be noted that Annabelle is not the official sequel The Conjuring 2, which is set for release October 23rd, 2015).

Annabelle was directed by John R. Leonetti (who served as a DP on The Conjuring and should be able to recreate that film’s style) and written by Gary Dauberman (the upcoming Crawlspace).  James Wan is producing alongside Peter Safran.  The film stars the somewhat ironically named Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders), Ward Horton, and Alfre Woodard. New Line and Warner Bros. will release the film on October 3rd, 2014.  Hit the jump for the Annabelle teaser trailer.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is one of our most-anticipated films of the summer.  The follow-up takes place five years after the first installment as Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless are exploring new territories while the rest of their friends are enjoying dragon races.  During one of Hiccup and Toothless’ journeys, they discover a secret ice cave, hundreds of new wild dragons, and the mysterious Dragon Rider.  In this teaser for tomorrow’s trailer, they meet up with a new rider (voiced by Cate Blanchett) and a new dragon who has an ability we haven’t seen before.  It’s another look at a world that’s going to be much bigger than the first, and I’m excited to see more when the new trailer drops tomorrow.

Marvel has released two brief teasers featuring Guardians of the Galaxy‘s animated characters, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and now they have teasers for the other three members of the crew.  This time, they’re focusing on the live-action characters: Chris Pratt as the roguish Peter Quill (aka “Star-Lord”), the assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and the rampaging Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista).  I assume these are the end of the character teasers, but it would be nice to see ones for Nebula (Karen Gillan) and The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) since they also made appearances in first trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the teasers.  The film also stars Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, and Peter SerafinowiczGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.

The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor was simulcast in over 200 countries today, creating a nice opportunity to air teasers for other fine British productions.  Naturally, there was a 10-second promo for the Doctor Who Christmas special which promised “Silence Will Fall” and a visit to the planet Trenzalore.  There were also slightly longer 30-second promos for Sherlock season 3 and Orphan Black season 2. Given where the previous season left off, the Sherlock clip opens on a tombstone that reads “Sherlock Holmes” before reassuring fans with the hashtag #sherlocklives.  The Orphan Black clip reveals the April 19, 2014 premiere date, then retreats as a distraught Tatiana Maslany stalks toward the camera.

Sherlock returns to PBS January 19.  Peter Capaldi will be fully revealed as the new Doctor on December 25.  Watch the teasers after the jump.

Disney will be showing off a 60-second TV spot for Iron Man 3 at some point on Sunday during Super Bowl XLVII.  Like they did for The Lone Ranger and Oz the Great and Powerful, the studio has released a trailer for their trailer.  Judging by this brief teaser, it looks like the Super Bowl spot will be just as grim as the first trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser.  The film opens in 3D on May 3rd, and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben KingsleyRebecca HallGuy PearceJon Favreau, and James Badge Dale.  In other Iron Man 3 news, check out new images of toys for the film.

Teaser for THE LONE RANGER Super Bowl Spot plus New Poster

by     Posted 1 year, 182 days ago

lone-ranger-poster-slice

Super Bowl XLVII is nearly upon us, and even though my beloved Falcons aren’t playing (10 yards shy of victory!), it will still be worth watching for both the football (Go Niners!) and for the ads (Go consumer culture!).  Studios will be showing ads for their biggest movies, and yesterday Disney showed off a teaser for their Oz the Great and Powerful ad.  Today, Disney has released a brief teaser for the Super Bowl spot for The Lone Ranger.  What’s weird about the teaser is that to watch the whole thing, you have to tune into the pre-show, and that’s never going to happen.  Adtime during gametime is running between $3.7 million and $3.8 million, so I can’t help but wonder if Disney is trying to save money by running their Lone Ranger ad before the game.  That seems like a wasted half-measure because the pre-game show lasts about 39 hours.  It would be better to air the ad during Puppy Bowl.

Hit the jump to check out the Super Bowl teaser along with a new poster.  The film stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham CarterThe Lone Ranger opens July 3rd.

Viral Teaser for M. Night Shyamalan’s AFTER EARTH

by     Posted 2 years, 13 days ago

after-earth-title-logo-slice

I have zero hope for M. Night Shyamalan‘s After Earth.  I wouldn’t trust Shyamalan to direct a Wendy’s commercial at this point.  But he keeps getting studios to give him lots of money to make tent pole movies, so here we are.  For those unfamiliar with the film, it’s about a father (Will Smith) and son (Jaden Smith) who crash land on Earth 1000 years after the planet was abandoned by mankind.  Once there, the son, named Kitai Raige, must try and help his wounded father (whose name, I kid you not, is Cypher Raige).

Bill attended the film’s panel at Comic-Con, and he came away impressed by the level of detail that screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli) and the production team had devised.  A viral teaser trailer has gone online that doesn’t show any footage from the film, but explains how the Raiges are “the most influential family in human history,” going all the way back to 1908.  This alternate history is shown via Facebook timeline, which apparently won’t evolve over the next 50 years (way to phone it in, Zuckerberg).  Hit the jump to check out the video.  After Earth opens June 7, 2013.
