Yogi Bear (Teaser Trailer)

leave a comment »

My main problem with CGI/live-action hybrids is just that: they’re CGI/live-action hybrids. I don’t really think the computer-generated world and the real world should be allowed to mingle; it should either be all CG or all live-action. Unfortunately for me, the two worlds come together again in Yogi Bear, a new family movie based on the old cartoon series. Dan Aykroyd voices Yogi, Justin Timberlake (?!) voices Boo Boo, and when Jellystone Park is about to be shut down, the two must fight to save it—and maybe steal some food in the process. The only live-action star I recognize is Anna Faris, and she’s looking as wide-eyed and shocked as she does in all her other movies (probably from exaggerating that emotion all the time in the Scary Movie series). Of course, it’s in 3D, and, okay, it’s a hybrid, but it does look better than another hybrid movie coming out soon. (cough cough *the Smurfs*) At least Dan Aykroyd looks happy.

The Social Network (Trailer)

leave a comment »

Trailers for The Social Network have been coming fast, and it seems that this one was released just two weeks after the first teaser. It still has that picture of Mark Zuckerberg, the one where he looks drunk, and it still has that same silly dialogue (most notably, “I can’t wait to stand over your shoulder and watch you write us a check”).

I’m not sure why they’re making this movie. The Facebook story doesn’t really seem like one of that much importance. I also didn’t expect the lighting to be so dim. I’m really into technology and the interesting stories behind it, but the more I watch this trailer, the less I want to see this movie. The song is “Creep”, by Scala & Kolacny Brothers. I’d link to it, or even embed it here cause it’s so awesome, but it has some strong language that is NSFW.

  • Dinner for Schmucks. Paul Rudd and Steve Carell lead an all-star cast in this comedy about Tim (Rudd), a man on the verge of a promotion. To land the deal, however, he’ll have to pick an idiot and invite him to dinner, where his colleagues can make fun at them. Enter Barry (Carell), a man who uses roadkill to create art pieces. PG-13 for sequences of crude and sexual content, some partial nudity and language.
  • Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Canines, felines (and birds, apparently) unite to defeat an evil kitty who wants to take over the world in this sequel to the 2001 movie. (In 3D, of course.) PG for animal action and humor.

For other trailers, pictures, and news, check out the movies’ websites.

Now, his sister (Hilary Swank) believes he is innocent and will fight for his release, going through an 18-year struggle. That epic song at the end is “My Name is Lincoln”, by Steve Jablonsky.

Buried (Feature Trailer)

Here’s the feature trailer for Buried, a movie I’m really looking forward to. What’s the plot? It’s relatively simple: Ryan Reynolds is buried in a coffin underground. I read somewhere that most of the film consists of Reynolds (playing Paul Conroy) making various phone calls to friends, family, and any numbers that he can remember, while also negotiating with whoever put him there. It seems like a really exciting movie. I just wish Lionsgate would put some stuff from the actual film in this trailer, rather than just pictures. It made me feel like I was walking through an art gallery.

Buried comes out on October 2nd nationwide, but starts its limited-release run on September 24th.

Never Let Me Go (Trailer)

leave a comment »

Never Let Me Go is based on the book of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro (which I have just started). It tells the story of children who are raised to be organ donors, and three of those children have finally been sent away from the school they went to, Hailsham, and are re-examining their past. I can’t wait to continue the book, and the movie looks amazingly good. It comes out October 1st.

Faster (Teaser Trailer)

leave a comment »

Dwayne Johnson gets back into action mode with Faster, a movie where he takes revenge on the four men who killed his brother. He kills one of the men, but just when things are looking easy, two other men, named Cop and Killer, try to hunt him down. Sounds a little bit like Nicolas Cage’s upcoming “Drive Angry”, but I’m good with this trailer for now. The movie hits theaters in November.
