Trailer Watch: Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths trailer

Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) is finally back with another black comedy. This one, Seven Psychopaths, is about “a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu.” The premise is a little goofy, but with these three guys in the lead, how could I not be on board?

Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko and Zeljko Ivanek co-star in the October 12th release.

Trailer Watch: The full trailer for The Hunger Games

The full trailer for The Hunger Games premiered on Good Morning America today, with much more about the plot than the teaser trailer (which is little more than a retread of The Running Man or Battle Royale). Jennifer Lawrence continues to look promising as Katniss, but the supporting cast continues to make my face wrinkle with its almost random assortment of talent, including Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Wes Bentley, Toby Jones, and Lenny Kravitz. Many (Harrelson, especially) seem mismatched to the tone the trailer is displaying here… but I guess we’ll see if it all comes together on March 23, 2012.

You can check it out in higher definition over at Apple.
