30 Seconds Of ‘10,000 B.C.’ Trailer

July 10, 2007

10000bc.gifThere is now an exclusive look at the first 30 seconds for the 10,000 B.C. trailer.  I didn’t know much about it, but I found out it’s the new prehistoric epic from director Roland Emmeriech.  The film follows a a young hunter on his quest to save the woman he loves but in the process manages to uncover a lost civilization.

As you might expect, you don’t get to see a whole lot in these first 30 second, but there is just enough there to get you interested.  Luckily you won’t have to wait long to see more, at least thats what I gathered from the text at the end of the clip, “WATCH THE FULL TRAILER ON YAHOO! TOMORROW.”

I can’t wait.

‘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.

HD ‘Bee Movie’ Trailer

July 10, 2007

bee.gifI’m a big fan of Jerry Seinfeld, so when I found out about this film, Bee Movie, I got pretty excited. I mean, Seinfeld and 3d animation? Sounds like a winner to me. The film follows Barry B. Benson(Seinfeld), a bee who is looking to spread his wings outside of the hive and really experience what the world has to offer. Along the way he becomes friends with a friendly human(Renée Zellweger) but also finds out that humans in general have been stealing honey from bees and he decides to take the matter to court. Thats right, he sues. Sounds like a funny idea and Seinfeld co-wrote the story so my expectations are high.

I’m sure you’ve seen all the previous trailers with Seinfeld dressed up in a bee costume (which you can watch here) which I’m a fan of, I thought they were brilliant and funny, now there is new HD trailer giving us a little more insight as to whats going on.

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.

New ‘Spiderwick’ Teaser Online

July 10, 2007

spiderwick.gifIt seems thats fantasy book big screen adaptations are becoming increasingly popular, and profitable, and so Hollywood keeps churning them out.  The latest, The Spiderwick Chronicles, is based upon a youth series of the same name about a group of siblings and the adventures that they get into upon discovering a book.  I have never read these books, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying any of the other countless adaptations, so I doubt it will matter much here.  This is how IMDB describes it: Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.

Now, we can get our first look at the film via this teaser trailer.  So far the movie looks good and I’m a fan of the actor choices, at least the ones with which I’m familiar.  I don’t know if I’m tired of what but in one see the special effects looked to be lacking a bit.  Regardless, overall there’s enough here to like and it gives us something to look forward to on February 15 2008.

’11th Hour’ Trailer

July 9, 2007

dicaprio.gifJust as The Inconvenient Truth did, I’m sure this is going to spark some sort of controversy or debate, which can be a good thing if people are open minded and level headed enough to discuss it.  In any case, the 11th Hour is a documentary that Leonardo DiCaprio and a team of film makers have been working on for a couple years.  The film, as described by IMDB, is a look at the state of the global environment including visionary and practical solutions for restoring the planet’s ecosystems.  It looks to be one of those powerful, thought provoking pieces and I am looking forward to it’s August release.

Over at MySpace, Leo has unveiled the first trailer for the movie and it’s definitely worth checking out.  I would embed it, but this free version of wordpress doesn’t allow it, but you can click here and check it out.
