Universal Pictures has released the first Jurassic World teaser trailer for director Colin Trevorrow’s (Safety Not Guaranteed) highly anticipated sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  This is the perfect kind of teaser trailer in that it offers a tiny taste of footage tinged with a hint of nostalgia (the minimal take on John Williams‘ iconic theme is great), all underlined with a sense of foreboding.  We don’t have to wait long until we see the the full trailer though, as it will debut on Thanksgiving at 6pm PT/ 9pm ET during NBC football.

THE JUDGE Review

by     Posted 46 days ago

the-judge-review

David Dobkin previously directed broad comedies such as Wedding Crashers and The Change-Up, and now he’s moved to broad drama with his latest feature, The Judge, a movie that clumsily grasps at every heartstring you have.  It’s a soft-focus weepy that rarely elicits any emotion.  Instead, the film feels made to showcase Robert Downey Jr‘s acting ability by proving he can do more than play variations of Tony Stark.  While the movie succeeds in showing the actor’s range, it still feels indulgent as it piles on plotlines instead of keeping the focus on the chemistry between Downey and co-star Robert Duvall.

Warner Bros. has released the first The Judge trailer for director David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) upcoming thriller/family drama.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  The trailer starts out with RDJ at his Starkiest, but takes a left turn away from the arrogant individualist to more of an everyman with daddy issues once the hook of the story comes in.  It’s got a touch of schmaltz to it, but it’s also refreshing to see Downey Jr. putting in work outside of the superhero/action-adventure franchises.

Hit the jump to check out the first The Judge trailer.  The film also stars Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Billy Bob Thornton, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester, Ken Howard, David Krumholtz, Balthazar Getty, and Denis O’HareThe Judge opens in theaters on October 10th.

Vincent D’Onofrio to Play Villain in JURASSIC WORLD [Updated with Character Details]

The highly anticipated Jurassic World has cast its villain, and it’s not exactly a T-Rex this time around.  Deadline reports that Vincent D’Onofrio has landed the antagonist role in director Colin Trevorrow’s follow-up, about which we know next to nothing.  One assumes the dinosaurs will still be the main threat for the film’s protagonists as D’Onofrio will likely be playing the pic’s human foil—possibly a person favoring monetary potential over the human life, though it’s also possible that Trevorrow has crafted a decidedly different feature in which a human character is actively controlling/using the dinosaurs to attack the core group of heroes.  Hit the jump for more, including news of another cast member being added in a supporting role.

[Update: A new report has revealed the character details for both D'Onofrio's role and the role to be played by Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), giving us our first hint at the plot of the film. Read on after the jump.]

The first trailer for director Fredrik Bond’s film Charlie Country has been released online.  Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood stars as a couple who meet under strange circumstances and have an impossibly strong mutual attraction, much to the chagrin of Wood’s dangerous husband (Mads Mikkelsen).  The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to fairly negative reviews, with many likening the pic to a feature-length music video.  Bond has made some edits to the pic since Sundance, so it’ll be interesting to see how the finished film stacks up.  This trailer highlights the meet-cute of the central couple, Wood’s odd Romanian accent, and Rupert Grint taking lots of drugs.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and if you missed our interviews from Sundance click here for the full cast and click here for Bond.  The film also stars Til Schweiger, James Buckley, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Melissa LeoCharlie Countryman will be simultaneously released VOD and in theaters on November 15th.

Breslin is framed and incarcerated in a prison of his own master design, and must escape in order to find out who framed him and why.  Stallone is joined by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays a fellow inmate and accomplice in the jail break.  The trailer makes the flick look like an old-school action flick, and one that could be a whole lot of fun.  Schwarzenegger and Stallone could have played these roles twenty years ago, but they don’t seem too old to play them now.

Exclusive Clip and Poster for PAWN SHOP CHRONICLES Starring Brendan Fraser, Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Chi McBride

Anchor Bay has sent us an exclusive poster and clip for the upcoming comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles.  Directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), the film is three short stories connected by items from a Southern small-town pawn shop.  The twisted tales involve “a man searching for his kidnapped wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads, and a sad-sack Elvis impersonator.”  It sounds like the fun insanity that permeated Kramer’s underseen 2006 film Running Scared.  This clip doesn’t show any of that movie’s electric cinematography and pacing, but that doesn’t mean those aspects will be absent from the rest of the picture.  As you can see from the trailer, the potential is certainly there.

Hit the jump to check out the exclusive poster and clip.  The film stars Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Vincent D’Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Norman Reedus, Chi McBride, Matt Dillon, and Paul WalkerPawn Shop Chronicles opens in theaters and hits VOD on July 12th.

FULL METAL JACKET 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 2 years, 67 days ago

full metal jacket r lee ermey

During the late 1980s, a generation of American boys went to war in Vietnam. Doing so, however, didn’t require any basic training or an actual tour of duty. Nope, all that was required was a working VCR and a VHS copy of any one of the squad of Vietnam War-era movies available at the local mom and pop video store. Seriously, I can’t remember a single birthday party from that time that didn’t involve a screening of Good Morning, Vietnam or Hamburger Hill or Platoon. But the Vietnam War movie that has always lingered strongest in my memory – the one that looked different and felt different from the others – was Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.  Hit the jump for my review of the 25th anniversary Blu-ray.
