The final trailer for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is finally here – and it looks GOOD!
Twentieth Century Fox and director Bryan Singer use an instrumental version of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” to score the last tease before the film’s May 23 release. It works, not just because the song’s lyrics (“I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been”) fit in with the film’s plot: In the post-apocalyptic future, Professor X and Magneto (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back to the past to change the course of history. The time travel puts Jackman in the same scenes as “X-Men: First Class” cast members Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender, and allows him to integrate with the new “X-Men” while still keeping old faves (hey, Halle Berry!) involved in the story as well. Watch the “X-Men: Days of Future Past” trailer, and ignore any and all similarities between the Sentinels and the Helicarriers in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
I LOVE the X-Men movies, so I’m super stoked about this movie. Who’s excited with me?
The trailer for David Fincher’s new movie, ‘Gone Girl,’ is FINALLY here! It looks creepy and dark and like absolute perfection!
“I did not kill my wife,” Ben Affleck’s character Nick Dunne says in the trailer. The trailer makes me VERY excited for the movie – who’s with me?
David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling thriller is due out later this year, and 20th Century Fox released the film’s first teaser on Monday. It’s a great one, filled with the sterilized images that fans have come to expect from Fincher, what appears to be a top-notch performance from Affleck (he even sells wearing a Mets hat) and the best-ever usage of “She,” here covered by Richard Butler. (Sorry, “Notting Hill.”) The only issue? The briefest of glimpses at the title character, Rosamund Pike’s Amy Dunne. Despite that, Pike still makes an impact here, something that portends to her forthcoming breakout.
“Gone Girl” is out in theaters on Oct. 3.
I can’t believe we have to wait till October to see it!!
Today we’re getting our first look at ‘Devil’s Knot,’ starring Reese Witherspoon as a distraught mother who loses her son. The movie is based on the true story of the West Memphis Three, who were accused of murdering three little boys in 1993.
Based on Mara Leveritt’s true-crime book “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three,” the film juxtaposes the controversial murder investigation with the pain of losing a child to an unthinkable crime.
“Devil’s Knot” opens May 9, when it will also premiere on iTunes. Colin Firth plays a private investigator who’s not convinced the convicted murderers are guilty. “Knot” also co-stars Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan, Amy Ryan and Stephen Moyer. Directed by celebrated indie fixture Atom Egoyan (“The Sweet Hereafter,” “Chloe”), the movie premiered to mixed reception at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Seems awfully intense. I’ve followed this case for years, because it’s incredibly fascinating. I’m not sure they even caught the real killer, did they?
The first trailer for the ‘Annie’ remake is out, and I am NOT sold. The movie stars the adorable Quvenzhane Wallis as Annie, plus Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks. I think I could buy it all – except for Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan. They can’t even make it look right in 2:41, I’m not convinced they can make it look right in an entire movie.
Watch the trailer below – let me know what you think!
The upcoming film was produced by Will Smith and Jay Z and also features Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Emma Thompson is one of the credited screenwriters. Take a look at the trailer for “Annie” below.
