This trailer made the rounds hours ago which is a lifetime by internet standards, but this appears to be an official (and advertisement free) version that isn’t going to get torn down. Enjoy!
Even if it wasn’t perfect top to bottom, I liked Stephen Frears’ last flick Tamara Drewe better than, well just about everyone so I’m looking forward to Lay the Favorite. The trailer seems breezy and funny if a bit inconsequential. It’s nice to see Hall sexed up a little especially after her frumpy (but terrific) (read…)
I guess if I’d seriously sat down to imagine what a Baz Luhrmann Gatsby would look like, it would look a lot like this. I just haven’t decided if that’s a good thing or bad. via: Apple

All I can think of watching this trailer is how I don’t want to hear Seth Rogen laughing again. Ever.

Ok, you can pretty much stow any and all worries you may have had about Robert Pattinson in David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis. This very much looks to be something of a return to an earlier tone from Cronenberg. Consider my skepticism erased. via: Your good pals at Twitch

Tim Burton’s work since 1994’s Ed Wood has been quite a let down, to say the least.

He’s become locked into his brand so that even (read…)

Right around the time you were getting tired of the overuse of the orange/blue complimentary color scheme in movie posters, some dope had they bright idea: “Hey, let’s make a whole movie in orange and blue!” et voila: Lockout. Sadly, the chief effect is to emphasize that the movie itself looks about as cliched and (read…)
