Trailer Watch: The LEGO Movie full trailer

Clone High and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs creators Chris Miller are back with The LEGO Movie, coming February 7.

You can read a plot description over in my post about the teaser, or just feast your eyes on this:

Trailer Watch: Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises TIFF trailer

From the Toronto International Film Festival YouTube comes a trailer for Hayao Miyazaki’s next, The Wind Rises, a “decade-spanning epic… inspired by the true stories of Jiro Horikoshi, visionary designer of one the most beautiful airplanes in history—the famed Zero fighter—and the poet Tatsuo Hori, whose verses are brought to life by the vivid animation of Studio Ghibli.”

The trailer is a thing of beauty, and while it’s been online for a little while, this one has subtitles for those of us who don’t know Japanese.

The film premieres at TIFF next month, naturally. There is no regular theatrical release date yet, and with the subject matter, I wouldn’t hold my breath unless an Academy Award nomination gets it some attention. But who knows?

Trailer Watch: Japanese Space Pirate Captain Harlock trailer

Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina director Shinji Aramaki is back with a CG-animated adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock. This third trailer (all in Japanese, so… hopefully you either speak it, or you’re familiar enough with the anime that you have some idea of what’s going on). I never did, and my Japanese is basically non-existent, so I’m totally lost… but it sure looks pretty.

The film is out in Japan this September, but no signs of an American release at this time. It’s all but guaranteed to make it here on video, eventually, though, so if you’re a fan, just hang in there.

If you really want to spoil it for yourself, there’s about twelve minutes of footage online here.

Trailer Watch: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 full trailer

A full trailer for the sequel to Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s awesomely unfaithful adaptation of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is online. Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn take over as directors, working from a script by John Francis Daley (yes, Sam Weir from Freaks and Geeks) and Jonathan M. Goldstein (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Horrible Bosses).

The unimaginatively titled Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 doesn’t quite have the same zing that Miller and Lord brought to the first Cloudy, or Clone High, or even 21 Jump Street — but I’ll take it.

Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg, Neil Patrick Harris, Benjamin Bratt, Terry Crews (taking over for Mr. T), Will Forte, and Kristen Schaal provide the voices for the September 27, 2013, release.
