“The Fighter” Trailer

leave a comment »

Here’s a trailer for the new sports drama The Fighter, which tells the story of Mickey Ward and his journey to the world lightweight championship with the help from his half-brother, Dicky Eklund. It looks like a good sports movie. Some of you might know that I don’t really care for sports movies, but this one looks like it has a, erm, fighting chance.

(Except that’s what I thought about The Blind Side. I was probably the only person in the world who didn’t like that film.)

The Fighter comes out in December.

New Movies for Friday, October 1st, 2010

  • Case 39. Renee Zellweger takes in a young girl after her parents threatened to kill her, but the evil that follows doesn’t have any desire to leave. R for violence and terror, including disturbing images.
  • Let Me In. A lonely boy becomes friends with a young girl named Abby, but soon discovers that she has a very dark secret. (Not to be confused with the young girl with the very dark secret from Case 39.) From the director of “Cloverfield”. R for strong bloody horror violence, language and a brief sexual situation.
  • The Social Network. The story of Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of the world’s biggest social networking community, Facebook. It’s so big, in fact, that MySpace this week ran an ad for the film. Sad trombone. PG-13 for sexual content, drug and alcohol use and language.

The Dilemma (Trailer)

leave a comment »

Here’s a new trailer for the Vince Vaughn/Kevin James comedy “The Dilemma”. It’s about a man (Vaughn) who finds out that his best friend’s (James) wife (Wynona Rider) is having an affair.

Oh, and did I mention it’s directed by Ron Howard? Yeah! I didn’t believe it either! I watched some trailers for the other movies he made, like “Angels and Demons”, “A Beautiful Mind” (good movie) and “Frost/Nixon”, and I guess this is his first comedy. (Unless you don’t count “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”.)

So far, the movie looks okay. It’s got that obligatory “guy-falls-into-a-poisonous-bush-and-it-just-so-happens-that-one-of-the-dangers-is-pain-urinating” scene, though. I might wait for the next trailer. (But at least they used an awesome Maroon 5 song. And “Barracuda”.)

Op! There’s part of that scene, right in the thumbnail!

  • Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. A young owl goes on an adventure to find the Guardians, the secret beings who protect the Owl Kingdom. From the director of “300”, and the studio that gave us “Happy Feet”. Based on the series of children’s books. PG for some sequences of scary action.
  • Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Michael Douglas returns as Gordon Gekko, who emerges from his jail time to form an alliance with his daughter’s fiancee (Shia LaBeouf). PG-13 for brief strong language and thematic elements.
  • You Again. Kirsten Bell plays a young woman who realizes that her high-school arch-nemesis is about to marry her brother in this girly comedy. Plus, her mother is rivals with Kirsten’s rival too! Like, OMG! PG for brief mild language and rude behavior.

For Colored Girls (Trailer)

leave a comment »

Here’s a trailer for the latest Tyler Perry movie, For Colored Girls. It’s based on the novel and play, and follows the stories of ten women as they navigate their paths in life and face new challenges and dreams.

Perry’s assembled an all-star cast, which includes Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, and Phylicia Rashad.

This movie looks good, like a real movie. I liked I Can Do Bad All By Myself, but this seems like a “real” movie, and not, like some other Perry films, like a soap opera.

I’ve heard the movie’s getting a lot of Oscar buzz, and there might be a nomination for Perry as a director. If he does get nominated, here’s some free advice for him: Tyler, if your next movie is going to be a Madea flick, do it a little while after Oscar time. Y’know. Just so that…you know.
