The trailer for Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.’s prequel to John Carpenter’s The Thingâ€¦ bizarrely also called The Thingâ€¦ is here, and yep, it looks pretty good. If anything, it looks a little too much like the originalâ€¦ but that’s prequels for you.
Also, it’s nice to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead not looking like a Muppet. Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom), Eric Christian Olsen, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Elite) and Ulrich Thomsen round out the cast.
The official site for The Dark Knight Rises has revealed the official teaser poster for Christopher Nolan’s third (and final) Batman film. Click on the poster to see it at full-size, although it probably won’t fit on your screen.
The film hits theaters on July 20, 2012, and stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Marion Cotillard.
Okay, I’m on board now. I still don’t like the too-”realistic” designs of the film, but Spielberg knows how to work a camera â€” apparently, even a virtual one â€” and I think I can get over it for two hours. The first trailer piqued my interest, but this new one actually shows characters talking and interacting more, and it’s all a bit more convincing.
Latino Review (one of the bigger rumor monger sites I got bored of writing about when I did Movie Make-out) has scored the exclusive trailer debut for Cuba’s first horror movie, titled Juan of the Dead.
Writer-director Alejandro Bruges describes the film: “It’s a zombie film but it’s about Cubans and how we react in the face of a crisis because we’ve had a lot of them here over the last 50 years. It is a social comedy, it has a bit of everything. It has horror, it has action and it pretty much laughs in the face of problems.”
Anyway, it’s funny. It’s well-shot. The effects are low-budget but surprisingly good. It’s one to keep an eye out forâ€¦ whenever it gets into theaters. It’ll probably debut on the festival circuit and score a limited release before turning into a cult hit on video.
