Trailer Watch: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer

I think most people who saw The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey would agree that it was overlong and a little too video gamey in some of the action scenes. Tolkein purists will object to the addition of Legolas… but they probably haven’t been on board with much about this trilogy (and some didn’t care for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, for that matter).

Well, what we see here in this first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug looks a bit like more of the same, but at least we’re past the slow, introductory bits and into the meat of the story, so perhaps it will be more fun. In any case, as a movie tech nerd, I’ll see it for the high frame rate, which I thought looked wonderful outside of some very brightly lit scenes (a shortcoming of the cameras Jackson used, not high frame rate as a technology, I think).

The film hits theaters on December 13th.

Trailer Watch: Alphonso Cuarón’s Gravity teaser

Awwwwwww shit.

Alphonso Cuarón’s long-awaited follow-up to Children of Men, Gravity, finally arrives on October 4th.

Trailer Watch: Skyfall theatrical trailers

Two theatrical trailers are up for Sam Mendes’s 007 flick, Skyfall, and in them, we meet Q and Javier Bardem’s bad guy, and we get decent overview of the plot of the film. They’re not much different, though there are a few quick shots in each that the other doesn’t have.

Skyfall hits theaters on November 9th. The film stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Tonia Sotiropoulou.

ParaNorman making-of featurette: “Hand-making the World”

I posted the trailer for Laika’s ParaNorman last October, and while the film still has a little way to go before its August 17th release, Focus Features has posted a making-of featurette on the official website.

I’m a huge animation nerd, and I love behind the scenes/making-of stuff, so I thought I’d post something other than a trailer or a short film just this once.

A synopsis for the zombie flick follows after the cut:
