Just yesterday, Sony Pictures unveiled the first theatrical trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The action-packed glimpse at Peter Parker's next ordeal rolled out many a villain and posed as many new questions as it answered.
So any fan who just can't wait until May 2, 2014 will be happy to find that there's already a commentary version of the trailer in which Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, and Jamie Foxx talk about what's happening in the trailer and what to expect from the sequel.
The latest trailer for Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty remake gets points for using Queen to set up the titular Mitty's imaginative habits.
An international trailer for the RoboCop remake explicitly asks what kind of life a detective could have as a piece of a corporate hardware.
It also answers that question, implicitly saying, "A totally badass one where he gets to hop around like Spider-Man, shoot big guns, and ride a RoboCycle."
Fake trailers are Machete's bread and butter.
So even though Machete Kills went over like a wet fart at the domestic box office, it only makes sense that we have a trailer for the as-yet nonexistent third installment Machete Kills Again...In Space.
As Maverick and Goose once said, “I feel the need … the Need for Speed!”
Scheduled to open in theaters on March 14, 2014 is the new racing film Need for Speed from Act of Valor director Scott Waugh. The movie is based on the popular video game of the same name by Electronic artists and was written by John Gatins (Real Steel) and George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau). Produced by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Pictures, the film’s cast includes Aaron Paul (TV’s Breaking Bad), Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Ramon Rodriguez (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Kid Cudi (TV’s How to Make It in America), Rami Malek (Oldboy), Harrison Gilbertson (Beneath Hill 60), Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street), and Michael Keaton (Batman).
The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Cooper). But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Poots) looks like it will save Tobey's shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, and sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out west. Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge. He knows his only chance to take down his rival is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car.
I recently had an opportunity to visit director Scott Waugh’s Bandito Brothers offices in Los Angeles (along with several other members of the press) to screen 20 minutes of Need for Speed and speak with Waugh and actor Aaron Paul. While we will be posting our full coverage of the edit bay visit closer to the movie’s release, the project’s first action packed trailer was just released online and we wanted to let you know now what Waugh and Paul had to say about the movie’s practical stunts.
Nick Frost has proven beyond a doubt that he's really, really funny. So our hopes are high for Frost's first film as a leading man.
The inaugural trailer for Cuban Fury suggests that Frost acquits himself nicely, squaring off against Chris O'Dowd in a battle for the affections of Rashida Jones.
The first trailer for the video game adaptation Need for Speed has plenty of Aaron Paul and lots of the requisite action, with slick supercars going deliriously fast, exploding, rolling, and the like.
What this Need for Speed trailer also has is an unexpected tone.
A new extended trailer makes it clear that, despite any superficial similarities, Under the Skin is nothing like Species.
Zero Charisma, the first trailer and poster for which just landed online, appears to be a movie very much of our time.
The first trailer for Escape From Tomorrow is only a minute long, but it takes way less time than that for the trailer to make you ask yourself just how this movie isn't being sued into oblivion by Disney.
