Another Who Trailer

March 30th, 2008 No comments

Here’s another trailer for series four of Doctor Who. It doesn’t show anything, but it’s pretty nifty nonetheless. “Poof…we’ll be gone!”

I Am SO There

Two new international trailers for Speed Racer. An entire squad of overall-wearing monkeys couldn’t keep me away from this one.

The trailer for the new Indiana Jones film has hit the web. Hmmm…that warehouse looks familiar.

And how better to celebrate the season than with the trailer to Hellboy II: The Golden Army?

And here’s the trailer for the sequel to Batman Begins.

Nope, sorry, but this version of the Joker isn’t doing it for me. Looks like “Buffalo Bill” from Silence of the Lambs without the suit made of lady parts.

Don’t Forget To Check The Trunk For Children And Monkeys

December 7th, 2007 No comments

This could be very cool or very, very awful: the Wachowski brothers (the guys who brought us The Matrix, for better and worse) are doing a film adaptation of my all-time favorite cartoon series, Speed Racer. USA Today has posted the first production photos, and I’m guardedly optimistic about them.

This is one of those films shot mostly in front of greenscreens (ala 300 and Sky Captain), and if the photos are any indication, the Wachowskis appear to be going for a gaudy hyper-reality. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; what I liked most about the cartoon was its excess.

In the world of Speed Racer, it wasn’t enough to have a cross-country road race. The course had to involve bottomless chasms, active volcanoes, or be at least partially-underwater for it to be worthy of the Mach 5. It was a given that all but a handful of racers would die in horrible, fiery wrecks, and that Speed would win the day by tearing through the pack in the last few seconds before the finish line. Speed Racer ruined real race cars for me; who wants to see cars maneuvering politely around a flat oval?

Certainly, it’s only now that this gravity-defying speedway insanity can be properly depicted in live action. If there’s at least one scene in which the Mach 5 rips through a forest at 150 mph tearing trees to shreds with its rotary cutters, I’m there.

Plus (and this is why Vic will be there with me), it has a monkey in the trunk.

Update: And here’s the trailer! Fuck, yeah!

Hush, Children! What’s That Sound?

Here’s something nifty: a trailer for a movie adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Whisperer in Darkness, from the folks who put out that excellent silent film of The Call of Cthulhu. This one is apparently a sound film, done as a ’30s horror flick.

Question: Could the trailer for Dragon Wars rock any fucking harder?

I. AM. SO. THERE.
