"We've lost the East Coast."
Zombie movies have always had a place among movie fans, but this summer, the first $100 million-budgeted zombie movie with a major movie star will make its debut with June's World War Z. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Max Brooks, fans have been waiting a while to see the movie — waiting patiently through a long production period that was only augmented by a six month delay and reshoots that would supposedly help fix the movie's ending.
Whatever problems surfaced along the way, the first trailer for World War Z arrived last November, and fans have been anxiously awaiting to see the next batch of footage. Mostly a continuation of the movie's trailer, some new footage is sprinkled throughout the Superbowl ad, but the message seems to be the same: zombie hordes have taken over the world and only Brad Pitt can save us all. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.01.13 by Ryan
10 seconds of footage to get you excited for 20 more.
It isn't enough these days to put out a trailer for an upcoming movie. If there's enough anticipation for the movie, a teaser for the trailer is now becoming customary practice for movie promotion. Such is the case with Marvel's highly-anticipated sequel Iron Man 3, which will have a Super Bowl ad air sometime during this Sunday's broadcast, and has a new poster and teaser to help promote the next unveiling of footage. watch the trailer, er the teaser for the trailer >> Posted 01.31.13 by Ryan
"No piece of art is worth a human life."
After winning the Academy Award for his direction of 2008's Slumdog Millionaire and scoring a Best Picture nomination for his follow-up, 127 Hours, it's strange that it took so long for Danny Boyle's latest movie, Trance, to find distribution in the United States. Already slated to open in March in the U.K., Trance will finally reach U.S. shores in April, with the delay perhaps explained by the fact that the movie was funded and shot in Britain.
Trance follows James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as a fine art auctioneer who plots to steal a fine art painting after being mixed up with a gang led by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan). After McAvoy double-crosses the gang, he is beaten over the head and can no longer remember where he has hidden the painting, and seeks help from a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson). The resulting first trailer (and its subsequent poster), reveal a story where the line between reality and hypnotic suggestion become blurred and the question of everyone's real intentions is not easily answered. hypnotic trailers

It's not just the witch's gingerbread you shouldn't trust.
One of the current trends in movie theaters lately has been movies that classic fairy tales and add an intriguing twist, whether it's extrapolating the world within the fairy tale such as in last year's Snow White and the Huntsman or taking fairy tale characters and putting them in a completely recreated universe, such as this weekend's number one movie at the box office, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. The trend continues with Tribeca Film's Hansel & Gretel Get Baked, which takes the fairy tale and sets it in modern day and then, as the title implies, adds marijuana. trailers to satisfy your hunger

"I thought sick people sometimes make things up."
The clock is ticking on Traffic and Erin Brockovich director Steven Soderbergh's career, with only two more movies to go before he goes into a voluntary retirement. After exploring the world of male exotic dancing in last year's Magic Mike and the global response to a pandemic in 2011's Contagion, Soderbergh's latest, Side Effects (formerly The Bitter Pill), targets the world of prescription drugs as it follows Emily Hawkins (Rooney Mara), an unsettled young woman who turns to prescription drugs to deal with the depression she suffers after her husband (Channing Tatum) is sent to prison. But after her husband is released, the drug prescribed to her by her psychiatrist (Jude Law) seems to be having curious, and potentially dangerous, effect.
Side Effects is clearly a thriller, though who exactly is in danger and who is to blame seems to be up in the air in this latest, international thriller.more mysterious trailers

"Folk songs? I thought you said you were a musician."
Academy Award–winning writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) have made movies in almost every genre, but their latest, Inside Llewyn Davis, is a first; a tale of a fictional folk singer named Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) set in the 1960s. Sure, the Coens have made movies set in the 1960s before (A Serious Man) and have even made movies that include folk music (Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?), but this is the first to tackle the folk music in the 1960s.
Reportedly based loosely on the life of Dave van Ronk, an American folk singer who was a part of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 60s who was an influence on Bob Dylan and others, Inside Llewyn Davis has yet to find distribution, however Thompson on Hollywood has managed to find a trailer sent as a special invite to industry professionals for a February screening on the Sony lot. The trailer, which does have language that is NSFW, offers a first, hazy look at Isaac as the troubled singer, along with co-stars Carey Mulligan (Drive) as a sharp-tongued ex, Justin Timberlake (The Social Network) as Mulligan's husband as well as Coen regular John Goodman (The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink) and Garrett Hedlund (seemingly on loan from On The Road). the latest in folksy trailers

Shhh, ninjas are fighting.
G.I. Joe fans: the wait is almost over. After a nine month delay, G.I. Joe: Retaliation will finally enter theaters in March, and studio Paramount is anxious to get the word out. The sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra had its promotional campaign start last summer, but, after the delay, trailers have been released on a seemingly weekly basis, with the latest trailer focusing almost entirely on action. It starts with the conflict between Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-Hun) that includes a mountainside escape from a pack of ninjas and ends with Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) and General Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) avoid explosions and drive tanks. the most explosive trailers

"With all due respect, I'm the best hope you've got."
When Hollywood trips on to a new conceit for a movie, there's usually a second, similar production also in the works (and, potentially a "mockbuster" as well) Such is the case with upcoming action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen, whose "Die Hard in the White House" concept is shared with White House Down. Both movies center on a Secret Service agent who must save the President after a terrorist group has taken over the White House, and both competed to complete their casting — Olympus Has Fallen has Gerard Butler in the lead role, White House Down has Channing Tatum — and get their respective movies into production.
While it's too early to tell which movie will win the war of the box office, Olympus Has Fallen has the earlier release date and, therefore, the first trailer, which has just arrived online. The big twist? Butler plays a former Presidential guard who was let go but becomes the only person who can save the President once he is kidnapped. protecting the latest trailers

The annual horror anthology is back to instill more devastating terror (and possible motion sickness).
Last Halloween, we recommended that the "found footage" horror anthology V/H/S be added to your horror movie watching list for the month just as it was about to debut in theaters in limited release. A sequel was announced as being in the works in November and, already has made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival.
According to one critic, S-V/H/S is "an incredible, exciting step forward" from the original, while another exclaimed that the sequel was a "leaner, but totally crazier, gorier, scarier, wilder, funnier follow-up."all the scariest trailers

How far would you go to have a good time?
Director Harmony Korine has never been one to follow convention, getting his start as the screenwriter for the 1995 cult, teenage skateboarding drama Kids before launching a career as a director with movies like 1997's Gummo, a loose pastiche of a stories set in the tornado devastated town of Xenia, Ohio, and 2009's Trashhumpers, which followed a group of Nashville, Tennessee, seniors who, um, really like garbage.
Korine's upcoming Spring Breakers may be his strangest yet, as it follows a group of best friends (Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine) whose hedonistic pursuit of the ultimate spring break ultimately crosses paths with rapper Alien (James Franco), who employs the girls in some criminal activity. party with the best trailers
