Filmmaker IQ’s The History of the Movie Trailer

If you’re interested in the history of film, this is pretty great. Filmmaker IQ has been making films like this for a while. (Check out their History of Cutting and The History of Hollywood Censorship and the Ratings System at their website.) The latest is a history of the movie trailer, which I’ve embedded below:

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.
