Trailer Watch: Bill Murray in St. Vincent

Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, and Naomi Watts star in writer-director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent, about a grumpy old man (Murray) who befriends the neighbor kid. There are a lot of familiar tropes in this story, but the dialogue and the cast seem solid enough to get past that. (Or at least it earned a few laughs from me.)

St. Vincent opens on October 24, 2014.

“The Gunfighter” by Eric Kissack and Kevin Tenglin

This eight minute short features Shawn Parsons as a gunfighter who walks into a saloon, only to be tormented by a sadistic narrator (Nick Offerman). It’s pretty funny stuff, so if you have headphones (there’s language) or aren’t at work, check it out!

Trailer Watch: Disney’s Marvel’s Big Hero 6 teaser

Big Hero 6 opens on November 7, 2014. Happy birthday to me?

Trailer Watch: Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service

Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of the Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons comic The Secret Service stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson. The comic is more than a little like if Wanted was about super-spies instead of super-villains, but it translates into a lot of cool, raw material for a fun action flick. And this looks a hell of a lot better than the Wanted movie (or Kick-Ass, for that matter — Vaughn’s earlier Millar movie).

Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theaters on October 24 — obviously gunning for some Oscar nominations, with that release date. (That’s a joke.)
