Trailerthon – December 6th 2009
It’s been a while that I did one of these as well, but here are some trailers for some upcoming flicks.
Micmacs à tire-larigot
Release Date: January 8th 2010 (UK)
Another oddball flick from Jean-Pierre Jeunet, director of Amelie, A Very Long Engagement, The City of Lost Children, Delicatessen and of course, Alien: Resurrection. I’m not a huge fan of his movies, TCOLC being the most interesting one of the bunch, but his movies are never boring.
Release Date: March 5th 2010 (US)
This looks pretty good. Directed by Antoine Fuqua in Training Day mode and has a great cast including Ethan Hawke, Richard Gere, Don Cheadle and Wesley Fucking Snipes! Apparently this was at Sundance 2009 where it got a few decent reviews (IMDB score is 8.9 from 322 votes. Not that IMDB is a great indicator.).
Season of the Witch
Release Date: March 19th 2010 (US)
I like Nic Cage. He’s almost become a parody of himself but I honestly can’t think of a flick he’s done in recent memory (that I’ve seen) where I’ve been bored. Maybe Ghost Rider? But he always has some sort of ridiculous roadkill sitting on his head that’s always amusing. He is occasionally a good actor. And for his sins (both financial and for marrying Presleys kid), he’s the only big actor that continues to serve up genre flicks for our enjoyment. And here we have another one, directed by Dominic Sena, and starring the mullet from Con Air. The trailer doesn’t really explain anything beyond ‘having to take a witch somewhere’, but who cares? Look at that hairpiece!
Note: I couldn’t find a poster for this flick anywhere on the web, which seems odd since it’s out in 4 months.
Release Date: December 25th 2009 (US)
I will pimp anything with Daniel Day-Lewis in it. Even a musical with Nicole Kidman, Goldie Hawn Jr and Plastic Fantastic from The Black Eyed Peas. He’s a fucking legend. That is all.
Release Date: December 16th 2009 (US)
I hate country and western music, but this looks good. Jeff Bridges is a champ, and it’s apparently generating a bit o’ the old “Oscar Buzz”. Has Bridges been recognised by his fucking peers yet? If he hasn’t, it’s a travesty! He should have a little gold man in a bathrobe holding a white russian sitting on his shelf.
44 Inch Chest
Release Date: January 22nd 2010 (UK)
I first saw this at our old haunt AICN, and it does indeed look good. Ray Winstone kicks ass, and the cast is filled with great British actors. Not to be mistaken with Jarv’s favourite wank material, ’12 Inch Schlong’.
Release Date: January 8th 2010 (US)
This looks amusingly awful. I assign one of you Yanks to see and review this when it comes out.
