“Unknown” Trailer Proves That, Even When He’s Dying, Liam Neeson Still Has That Super-Calm Liam Neeson Face

See?

Here’s a trailer for Unknown, which stars (as you might already have read) Liam Neeson as Dr. Martin Harris, who awakens from a coma to find that someone else has stolen his identity, and strange murders are stalking him. But I guess that’s all in a day’s work for a psychiatrist.

(awkward pause) I’m still not sure if that last line was supposed to be funny or not.

On that note…! Unknown will hit theaters in February.

Here’s A New Trailer for “The Dilemma”, Which, Luckily, Doesn’t Contain The Token “Painful Urination” Scene.

Aaack! (covers face) There it is!

This is an unusually long (clocking in at around 3 minutes) new trailer for Ron Howard’s The Dilemma. The story: Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Connelly are married, and Vaughn’s best friend (Kevin James) has a girlfriend (Wynona Ryder). Everything’s just peachy between the two couples until Vaughn finds out that Ryder has been having an affair, and is forced to answer the $64,000 question: Should he tell his buddy?

It still looks the same as it did in the original *shudder* trailer (which GLAAD got Universal to stop running over the use of the word “gay"): Just “meh”. Just okay.

Anyway, enjoy this new trailer, which features three recognizable songs. (But for most people, probably only two.)

 

(Also, just on a side note to Universal: The movie comes out in 2011. There are, like, three more months until the release date. The first trailer came out two weeks before this one. How are you going to advertise the movie, for three months, until then?)

“True Grit”: Trailer for the Coen Brothers Remake

Here’s a trailer for the Coen Brothers’ remake of True Grit, the story of Mattie Ross, a young girl who plans to avenge the death of her father. She enlists help from Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) to find the killer. Matt Damon and Josh Brolin also star.

Now, I know that this is based off the 1969 version of the film starring John Wayne as Cogburn, and that it was his only Oscar-winning performance. It’s just that the trailer for that edition looks just so silly compared to this one:

Maybe the trailer for that version just doesn’t do it any justice, and I haven’t seen the film yet, but so far I’m still more excited for the Coen version. Sorry, John Wayne.

Don’t forget to “sunscribe” for more trailer reviews!
