Trailer Watch: The Book of Life trailer

This looks insane. I love it.

Here’s the synopsis, but the trailer tells you all you really need to know:

An animated comedy with a unique visual style, “The Book of Life” is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, “The Book of Life” encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future.

Guillermo del Toro produced this, as well, although it’s hard to tell how involved he is. I’d guess co-writer and director Jorge R. Gutierrez is shaping this more than anyone else. Anyway, the film comes out on October 17, 2014.

Trailer Watch: 22 Jump Street red band trailer

I don’t know anybody who wasn’t already a fan of Clone High and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs who thought 21 Jump Street was going to be any good. But when it was actually pretty great, a sequel was quickly greenlit — and when The LEGO Movie was not just also way better than it had any right to be but a commercial hit, as well, directing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord were basically anointed the latest Hollywood Golden Boys.

Anyway, so this red band trailer for 22 Jump Street has a lot more to live up to than anything else they’ve done, but what we’ve seen so far seems… well, like a sequel. This trailer basically thumbs its nose at that idea, while at the same time not really showing us anything new and different. We’ll see how it goes on June 13, 2014.

Trailer Watch: 22 Jump Street teaser trailer

The 21 Jump Street movie was so much better than it had any right to be, thanks in large part to Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs). It did really well, and so Hollywood is giving us another one:

22 Jump Street. June 13, 2014, baby.
