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: Pacific Rim trailer #4

A new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is online, and it continues to look epic. This one gives us a little more of the human side of the story — and also a bunch of new mecha-on-kaiju action.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day. It opens on July 12th.

If this trailer doesn’t get you more excited about Pacific Rim, I’m revoking your geek card.

Thomas Jane is back as the Punisher (unofficially) in “Dirty Laundry”

Thomas Jane previously starred in Lionsgate’s 2004 The Punisher, which didn’t do very well in the theaters or with critics — at least, not well enough to warrant a sequel by the same team. But the 2008 Punisher: War Zone fared even worse.

At this year’s SDCC, Jane premiered a ten minute “fan film” starring himself as Frank Castle once again, called “Dirty Laundry.” Jane explained: “I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in — a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish. We hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.”

Honestly, it’s… uh… not very good for most of its running time — but once the killing starts (oh, and it’s pretty violent), it gets fun. Sorry to spoil the fact that he’s the Punisher, by the way. It’s mean to be an awesome reveal at the end, but… really, it doesn’t make a difference.
