August 16, 2017

Here's a deleted scene from Logan featuring Logan talking about Sabretooth. I guess they figured they could save a bunch of money by not having to actually cast Sabretooth and only showing him as an action figure. Well played, Hollywood studio. Well played.

The first trailer for 'mother!' feels appropirately unnerving

August 8, 2017

Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem seem like an incredibly mismatched couple, but get past that and we've got ourselves an appropriately unsettling Darren Aronofsky trailer. It's still unclear what we're actually dealing with here, but Ed Harris has really seemed to embrace being typecast as the old mysterious creepy guy who shows up and nobody really knows what's up with him but his face is really old and creepy so it's probably nothing good.

And for reference, here's how he appears in comic form as drawn by his creator Rob Liefeld:

So, all in all, we've three pretty ridiculous looking pictures of a grey-haired guy with a robot arm here.

'mother!' teaser trailer

August 2, 2017

This is the first teaser for Darren Aronofsky's new film mother!. All the official marketing and press stuff seems to be sticking with this lowercase exclamation mark way of writing mother!, so I guess that's the preferred horrible formatting? Apparently Mother just wasn't weird enough for an Aronofsky film. There's not too much to talk about here, since it's only thirty seconds of confusing imagery and voiceover, but it definitely feels like a Darren Aronofsky movie. The full trailer comes out on the 8th, and the film hits theaters on September 15.

Netflix teamed up with David Fincher again. Here's the trailer for 'Mindhunter'

August 1, 2017

When Netflix hires David Fincher to direct the first two episodes of a new series, the odds are pretty good the show is going to be amazing. Sure, we only have a sample size of one (House of Cards), but that's good enough for me. Mindhunter is about two FBI agents setting out to understand the world of serial killers. At least I think that's the premise. It feels like if Zodiac and Silence of the Lambs had a baby and then Netflix kidnapped it and sold it for profit.

Here's the first image of Domino from Deadpool 2

Ryan Reynolds tweeted the first image of Zazie Beetz as Domino from the upcoming Deadpool sequel. It mirrors the original marketing for Deadpool, only instead of Deadpool on a bearskin rug, it's Domino on a Deadpool rug. Deadpool suit? Whatever, you get what I'm saying. If you're unfamiliar with Domino, her power is to be really, really lucky. Via Wikipedia:

Domino is a mutant with the ability to subconsciously and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things occur within her line of sight, thus causing her to have "good luck" and her opponents to have "bad luck."

It's probably safe to assume the filmmakers will use this as an excuse to put together action set pieces that push the limits of believability with the caveat that it's all part of her power. Or maybe they'll decide to film two hours of her playing craps at a casino. Both equally likely scenarios.

George Clooney directed a Coen Brothers movie in this trailer for 'Suburbicon'

Here's the trailer for Suburbicon, starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac, and directed by George Clooney. If you're wondering why it feels like a Coen Brothers movie, it's because it was written by them. Also, apparently when asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, a young George Clooney responded, "The Coen Brothers." That last part might not be true, but it also might be true.
