Is anyone else totally feeling Henry Cavill? ‘Cause we are in spades. Which is a really good thing considering he has two huge roles lined up. The first, as we know, is Superman. The second is a film we’re itching to watch — Immortals. Watch the trailer to see why we’re champing at the bit. Cavill plays the legendary hero Theseus and can we also get a woot for Freida Pinto, who’s working her high priestess role? One question begs to be asked — does Cavill spent most of the movie shirtless? Or is that just the art of smart trailer-ing. Because if so … Bravo!
Maybe it says something about The Modern Times We Live In that we’re more terrified by creepy toys than by your standard serial killer, but when they cut to that decrepit antique baby doll in the first second of The Women In Black trailer, fuhgeddaboudit. We could have been driving that carriage away faster than you could say,”Oh god, there’s a crusty-eyed clown doll too!”
In the grand tradition of horror films, however, Daniel Radcliffe’s dashing protagonist instead chooses to hang out in a haunted marsh house waiting for the titular lady in black, despite the fact that she clearly is controlling those monkey toys from beyond the grave. “I also do like playing slightly disenfranchised characters like Arthur is in The Woman in Black,” the Harry Potter star told MTV last month. “He’s someone who’s grieving and whose grief has put him to the edge of madness and also has sort of made him ostracize himself from society. I guess I like the dark stuff. I find it more interesting.” The movie is slated to come out February 3, 2012, meaning our last full-night of sleep will be on the night of February 2. Before the dolls descend. Forever.
The Amazing Spider-Man trailer has leaked right before Comic Con, OMG OMG! How the guards in the screening room did not catching this person taping the entire thing we do not know and frankly, we do not care. Because that person has brought us the greatest gift of all time: video of Andrew Garfield‘s bare arms. Aside from that glorious moment the movie seems somewhat indistinguishable from the original franchise starring Tobey Maguire, but whatevs. We’ll still go see this version because duh, and also because ARMS.
There is life after Friday Night Lights for our beloved Tim Riggins! Our favorite brooding bad boy and his pecs star in John Carter, the first live-action movie from Pixar director Andrew Stanton. Taylor Kitsch plays a Civil War vet sent to Mars (seriously) where he ends up fighting epic space battles and falling in love with an intergalactic hottie played by Lynn Collins. Most importantly, Taylor is shirtless for most of the trailer, which bodes well for the actual film. Alien eyes, full pecs, can’t lose!
Tyler Perry, the Wayans, Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Robin Williams: we could go on, but eventually every successful comedian will slip into a fat suit and a wig for his pièce de résistance, playing a hideous woman. It’s a natural part of every comedian’s life, so there’s no reason to poke fun or pretend like you won’t end up watching this movie some Saturday afternoon on Netflix. In the case of Adam Sandler, Jack and Jill features the Just Go With It star as both halves of a set of fraternal twins. Despite the genetic unlikeliness, it appears one of them managed to get both the speech impediment and the grating personality. The Sandlers are joined by a bearded Al Pacino, a unrealistically normal Katie Holmes, and, of course, a dragtastic David Spade.
You GUYS. We didn’t expect it at all, but after watching the trailer for Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, we’re dying to watch the movie. The Kremlin blowing up, Eminem in the soundtrack, Tom Cruise and his running, and that cast! Jeremy Renner, badass Indian actor Anil Kapoor, Josh Holloway (Lost fan alert) and Simon Pegg. Please tell us you love Simon as much as we do? Scotty in Star Trek (the 2009 version) is just the tip of the iceberg with him.
It’s everything you’d expect out of an MI movie, especially the stunts, which look un-frickin’-real. Tom Cruise’s character Ethan Hunt, his team and the WHOLE Impossible Mission Force are being blamed for the Kremlin attack and branded as terrorists. They’re allowed to escape as part of a plan to help them work outside of the agency, but none of them can be captured. Ready, set, go! And Tom looks great. Jeremy Renner looks delicious. And the eye-candy of the film, Paula Patton looks pretty good too. It’s a win-win.
We don’t think anyone in their right mind would deny that Chris Evans is an all-American hottieboombalottie, but the more we see of skinny little CGI Evans as Steve Rogers in the new Captain America: The First Avenger trailer, the more we are digging those spindly arms and concave chest. It gives the average woman the illusion of attainability.
“I think if at the end of the first film, you still see Little Steve, Little Skinny Steve, that’s the guy you relate to and that’s the guy you always see in Steve Rogers, I think that’s what the audience will like. That’s what I certainly will like,” Chris Evans explained to Hit Fix. We’re also loving the sizable amount of Stanley Tucci as a supportive scientist Araham Erskine and Tommy Lee Jones as a gruff Army man Col. Chester Phillips in the film, due out July 22. After all that, the Nazi-fighting and non-stop explosions are just icing on the 90-lbs asthmatic cake.
From the looks of it, the Footloose trailer, the director Craig Brewer hasn’t deviated much from the original film. Only this time Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough have taken on the lead roles of Ren McCormack and Ariel Moore. Dennis Quaid also seems perfect as Rev. Shaw Moore, the stern patriarch and main adversary of rock and roll. There’s lots of dancing, of course, and all the moves look pretty sick! Here’s a funny fact too — we noticed that Julianne (brunette for the role) looks like a dead ringer for Carmen Electra at certain angles! She’s having quite a year, isn’t she. First Rock of Ages and now this. We’re going to watch both. Don’t hold it against us, but we’re huge nerds for dance movies.
Baby Harry! Ghost Mom! Suicide missions! As the film’s July 15 release date nears, what is reportedly the final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer seems scientifically engineered to get Harry Potter fans hyperventilating into their old pile of Gryffindor scarfs. Based on the new scenes we didn’t see in the first Deathly Hallows trailer, audience members can look forward to plenty of Lily Potter, a glimpse of Molly Weasley going ape on Bellatrix Lestrange and of course, our favorite part, lots and lots of Warwick Davis!
However, while this might very well be the last sneak-peek before the movie comes out, author J.K. Rowling has launched Pottermore, a mysterious site that seems to suggest that we haven’t booked our last tickets to Hogwarts just yet. According to the Pottermore YouTube channel, there are currently 5 days and counting until Rowling makes an important announcement, noting “The owls are gathering… Find out why soon.” Jo better come out with it soon, or people are going to start bursting into flames just like that poor quidditch stadium.
Anyone else have the distinct impression that The Muppets‘ Green Lantern parody trailer might be better than the actual Green Lantern movie? Okay, so it’s not just us then. As their most recent parody trailer (following their Hangover trailer) suggests, Kermie would definitely not take any more karate chops to the face if he was suddenly wielding alien superpowers. Well, he’d take fewer at least; he’s still just a kindly frog at heart. The trailer also gives us a sneak peek at the villainous leanings of Statler and Waldorf, and the flame-wielding heroics of the Swedish Chef. Despite Jason Segal‘s attempts to reassure to American public, we’d still see this movie if it was filmed in Swedish. After all, at least it doesn’t have all those unsettling CGI aliens.
