‘Sleuth’ Trailer

July 10, 2007

sleuth.gifAny day with a load of new trailers is a good day and that day is today.  Well let’s add one more to the list shall we?  This one is for Sleuth the remake of the 1970 classic which starred Michael Caine and Lawrence Olivier.  The new version also has Caine but in the opposite role that he played in the original and he stars with Jude Law.  In the story, an aging writer (Caine) matches wits with the struggling actor (Law) who has stolen his wife’s heart.

I haven’t seen the original to the footage in the new trailer, but I have to say the film looks very entertaining.  Caine and Law both have a great presence on the big screen and they seem to have a lot of chemistry.  Check out the new trailer here.

The Trailer Guide — ‘Valley of Elah’, ‘Get Smart’, and ‘Fred Claus’

July 10, 2007

vallyofelah.gifI usually do ‘Trailer Guides’ at the end of the week, but who says I can’t change the rules? Plus there are several new trailers available online today, so it’s just easier.

In the Valley of Elah
Another emotionally driven movie from director Paul Haggis (Crash). In the Valley of Elah tells the story of a young soldier that goes AWOL shortly after he returns to the States. The boys father (Tommy Lee Jones) goes searching for him and enlists the aid of a police detective (Charlize Theron) in the place the boy was last seen. Susan Sarandon also stars. This movie looks good. The performances look solid and I already feel a bit invested in the characters despite having only seen the trailer. Be sure to look for this one September 21.

Clips From Upcoming ‘1408’

June 11, 2007

1408, the latest in a long line of Stephen King adaptations, opens June 22.  This film follows Mike Enslin (John Cusack)  as he attempts to debunk places of supposed paranormal activity.  And so he winds up at the Dolphin Hotel in room 1408 where he might actually find some real evidence.

IESB.net is hosting eight clips from the film if you’re interest in checking them out. (Click Here)  The movie looks pretty good to me, I can’t wait to review and let you all know how it is.
