Preview Clip Round-Up: Frankenweenie, Seven Psychopaths, and a Deleted Scene From The Avengers
Posted 09.29.12 by Ryan
As expected, October has plenty of creepy movies lined up, including Sinister and the sequels Paranormal Activity 4 and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. There are also some non-horror movies like the action-thriller sequel Taken 2, action-thriller sort-of prequel Alex Cross and the dark comedy Seven Psychopaths. There's even some movies for the whole family, like director Tim Burton's stop motion animated Frankenweenie, which certainly utilizes a Halloween-friendly theme.
To help preview some of October's upcoming movies, we've rounded up some preview clips from a couple of next month's offerings, helping you get a sneak peek. But first, we'll include a preview clip from a movie that has just arrived on DVD and Blu-Ray: The Avengers. The disc offers plenty of deleted scenes, most of which deal with Captain America (Chris Evans) and his transition to the present after being frozen in the 1940s. The deleted scene offers a more detailed look into how Cap is spending his days, leading up to his scene in the gym with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). If you look closely, you'll see a cameo from Avengers comic book co-creator Stan Lee.

Opening October 5, Frankenweenie borrows from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, as it tells the story of a young boy named Victor who finds a way to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life. In the below clip, Victor (voiced by Charlie Tahan) is approached by Weird Girl (voiced by Catherine O'Hara), who tells Victor that her cat, Mr. Whiskers, has had a premonition about him.
Opening October 12, Seven Psychopaths is the second movie for writer-director Martin McDonagh, who made his transition from playwright to moviemaker with In Bruges. The movie follows a struggling writer (Colin Farrell) who gets caught up in trouble he never wanted when his friend (Sam Rockwell) kidnaps a mobster's (Woody Harrelson) dog. In the below clip, Farrell and Christopher Walken return to Rockwell's place after being attacked by guys looking for the kidnapped dog.
In the second clip, Rockwell tells his girlfriend (Olga Kurylenko) that he has kidnapped the dog.
