"Adult supervision is required."
Not since July's extended TV spot have we seen new footage from Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Southern" Django Unchained, but a new trailer has arrived online and we couldn't be happier about it.
The first half plays like the other trailers that have arrived so far, showing the partnership between freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and German bounty hunter King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), as they work on their respective missions of vengeance. Schultz is looking to bring down the hood-wearing Brittle Brothers, while Django is looking to free his wife (Kerry Washington) from the villainous slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The second half is where more new footage arrives, with more footage of Django, who reveals he's getting "dirty" to take care of his business, and more of DiCaprio, who's Candie is the kind of charming villain audiences will love to hate, perhaps not unlike Waltz's Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds. There's also more of Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Candie's loyal house slave Stephen, and warns Candie of the dubious intentions of Schultz and Django, while the very first footage of Jonah Hill is also revealed (surprise, his role looks comedic). the latest trailers, unchained

"It's not the years...it's the mileage."
Though the novelty of The Expendables' all-star cast of '80s and '90s action heroes wore off somewhat by the time The Expendables 2 hit theaters, the resurgence of aging tough-guy actors continues with the success of Liam Neeson's Taken 2, which beat down the competition this past weekend. And there's more to come. Ah-nuld's getting back in the game with The Last Stand and Bruce Willis is dusting off John McClane for a fifth go-round in A Good Day to Die Hard. But, not all aging actors can continue to pull off the kind of tough-guy roles they played in their youth. Tell us which over-50 actors still have what it takes to beat up the bad guys and come back for more.

The first trailers for Django Unchained had nearly everything you would expect from a trailer for a Quentin Tarantino movie: a hot soundtrack (Johnny Cash's "Ain't No Grave" and James Brown's "The Payback"), sharp, witty dialogue ("You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.") and some kick-ass action but it was sorely missing something that is in nearly every QT movie — Mr. Samuel L. Jackson (he was briefly seen in the international trailer). That omission is corrected in the new spot for Tarantino's "Southern." Yahoo! has the latest promotional footage, which is revealed in a 60-second spot, which features a mean-looking Jackson sporting some eyebrows that only he could pull off.
Set in the pre-Civil War South, Django Unchained follows freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and German bounty hunter King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) as they both seek out their individual vengeance mandates. For Django, his mission is to free his wife (Kerry Washington) from the villainous slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), and, in order to do that, the unlikely duo will have to find away around the suspicions of Stephen (Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave, who was very briefly revealed in the international trailer, but gets to speak a slightly bigger chunk of seconds in the new spot. watch the spot >> Posted 07.02.12 by Ryan
The unveiling of the first trailer for the upcoming Django Unchained last week was a cause for celebration, particularly for fans of writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Now there's more to celebrate: New footage has been revealed in the international trailer.
Described as a "Southern" — combining the Western genre with a pre-Civil War American South setting — Django Unchained follows the unlikely partnership of freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and German bounty hunter King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) as they travel the countryside, each needing the other to achieve his individual revenge. While the international trailer offers more footage of Django and Schultz, there's also more of Leonardo DiCaprio relishing his role as the villainous slave owner Calvin Candie, as well as a (very brief) first look at Samuel L. Jackson, who was all but ignored in the first trailer. watch the trailer >> Posted 06.13.12 by Ryan
The already-impressive resume of Samuel L. Jackson — well over 100 movies, including the Star Wars prequels, The Avengers, and most of Quentin Tarantino's movies — will soon include another major movie franchise. According to THR, Jackson will be able to add Brazilian director José Padilha's (Elite Squad) RoboCop remake to his list of credits, joining a cast that so far includes Joel Kinnaman (AMC's The Killing) as Alex Murphy, the mortally wounded cop who is turned into a literal law enforcement machine, and Gary Oldman (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) as Norton, the scientist who creates Robocop. more about RoboCop >> Posted 06.07.12 by BrentJS
Another week, another barrage of preview clips from Marvel's The Avengers.
Last week saw the release of three Avengers preview clips. The first saw S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) discuss the Tesseract (or Cosmic Cube), while the second saw Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) discussing who has the best tactical advantage while Stark enjoyed a drink in Stark Tower. The week ended with a clip that showed Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) fighting side-by-side against Loki's army.
The latest clip is again, dialogue heavy, as Nick Fury (Jackson) discusses the meaning of power with Loki (Hiddleston) after the latter has been imprisoned in a S.H.I.E.L.D. cell made for the Hulk. Thor (Hemsworth), Captain America (Evans) Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hill (Smulders), and Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) listen in as they talk. watch the clip >> Posted 04.16.12 by Ryan
The Avengers has so much potential to be a mega-hit — the superheroes of Marvel's Iron Man, First Avenger: Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, and Thor movies all "assembled" in one movie! — that it seems like everyone wants in on the action, from obvious merchandising tie-ins like coloring books, games, and toys to less obvious ones like cologne (we're not sure we want to know what the Hulk smells like, let alone smell like the Hulk).
The latest to get in on the action is the Wyndham hotel group, which recently launched the HotelsAssemble website. Through the site you can, of course, book a hotel stay, but you can also download a set of awesome wallpapers featuring the star-studded cast of The Avengers — the Hulk wallpaper offers our best look yet at Mark Ruffalo as the "jade giant" — and also play Avengers-themed puzzles and games, answer trivia, read digital comic books, and more. download Avengers wallpapers >> Posted 04.11.12 by BrentJS
Last week, Marvel released the first preview clip for The Avengers, which saw Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) tied to a chair and talking to S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) on a cell phone only to kick and punch her way to freedom. With the movie's release date less than a month away, promotion is at a fever pitch, and many might assume that the next preview clip might also be an action-packed scene from the upcoming comic book adaptation, perhaps more of the forest-set confrontation between Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) or even more of Tony Stark (Downey) talking with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in Stark Tower about who will defeat whom before throwing Stark out a window.
Instead, while appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman, Cobie Smulders brought a clip that sees her character of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill talk with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) about the Tesseract — known as the Cosmic Cube in the Marvel comic books and previously shown in Captain America: The First Avenger and in the post-credits scene in Thor — and how to maintain security measures around it. If you like action as much as rapid-fire dialogue, consider this clip "action-packed." watch the clip >> Posted 04.10.12 by Ryan
Last August, Marvel Entertainment announced the release dates for two, mysterious untitled movies, one that would open on April 4th, and the other on May 16th. It was speculated by every website on the world wide web (including us) that Captain America 2 was likely for at least one of the two dates. So, it was no surprise when Marvel officially announced today that Captain America 2 would fill the April 4th release date.
The move keeps with Marvel's release pattern, which, in its brief history so far has been: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America. 2013 will see the release of Iron Man 3 and Thor 2, with Captain America 2 following in 2014. Whatever Marvel decides to put into that May 16th slot could break the pattern, even if it ends up being The Incredible Hulk 2. more about captain America 2 >> Posted 04.05.12 by Ryan
We are now officially a month away from when The Avengers reaches theaters and Marvel is spreading the word with a new preview clip and a new TV spot.
Combining the collective efforts of every movie Marvel Studios has done so far — 2008's Iron Man, 2008's The Incredible Hulk, 2010's Iron Man 2, and last year's Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger — The Avengers assembles characters from each of those movies, as revealed in the latest TV spot. Titled "Team," the spot starts with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) firing on New York City, prompting Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to declare "we are at war" and "we need a team." The TV spot then shows off each member of the team, revealing Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) de-armoring into Tony Stark, Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) transforming into the Hulk, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) strapping on his quiver of arrows, and ending with Captain America (Chris Evans) asking Thor (Chris Hemsworth) if he's "sure about this" — amongst other snippets of new footage. watch the TV spot and preview clip >> Posted 04.04.12 by Ryan
