"What, the sexy dance?"
In the first trailer for the upcoming ensemble comedy Freaky Deaky, it's clear that everybody wants something, it's just not exactly sure who wants what from whom. There's Detroit police officer Chris Mankowski (Billy Burke), former Black Panther Donnell Lewis (Michael Jai White) and vengeful couple Skip (Christian Slater) and Robin (Breanne Racano), who all want something from eccentric and rich Woody Ricks (Crispin Glover).
While the trailer is more interested in showing off the movie's humor than explaining the movie's plot mechanics, as long as writer-director Charles Matthau stayed close to the spirit of Elmore Leonard's 1988 novel, Freaky Deaky should be an entertaining ride. Hey, it worked for 1995's Get Shorty, 1998's Out of Sight, and the TV show Justified, all of which are based on Leonard's books. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.23.13 by Ryan
The floodgates have opened. It's starting to seem like every time you turn around there's some new dispatch filled with eye candy from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Not to mention all the goodies promised in the week leading up to the movie's Super Bowl trailer. Up this week over at Empire are some more intriguing bits of concept art, character stills, and a short video to tie it all together.
Of particular note are a couple of pieces of concept art in which the twisted personalities behind the characters really seems to shine through. We have a drawing of the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), who despite being made almost entirely of hearts, looks mightily displeased. More surprisingly, we get the concept drawing of the pirate-like Knave of Hearts along with a couple of production stills showing what Crispin Glover looks like filling out that role. Although The Knave is the head of the Red Queen's army, he is all decked out in black, down to his heart-shaped eye-patch. And he's sporting a pretty nasty-looking scar to boot.
