Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters Of The Third Kind is getting a 4K remastered theatrical re-release, and along with such a re-release comes a beautiful new poster and modernized new trailer. It's still the same mashed potato movie you know and love, but now you get a trailer with a confusing action score because their marketing department must've been told this was a prequel to Independence Day.
The new Justice League trailer asks that timeless question: how many overly complicated action set pieces is too many overly complicated action set pieces? Even for a trailer, they're kind of pushing the limits here. I'm glad they've set up the Flash as the comedic relief and Cyborg doesn't look completely useless, but why are we still pretending that Superman is actually dead? Does Warner Bros. actually think they're bamboozling anybody? They're like the five-year old playing hide and seek who's leaning against a wall staring at you staring at them and giggling to themselves because they think they're a hiding genius and you can't see them.
I know this is technically a Thor movie, but I get the distinct feeling Hulk is going to be stealing the majority of the show here. He's got that sweet new fade and he's talking now. Nothing can compete with talking Hulk, not even Chris Hemsworth's gratuitous abs shot.
Here's the official Comic-Con trailer for Triple Threat, starring Starring Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Tiger Chen, Celina Jade, Michael Jai White, Jeeja Yanin, and Michael Bisping. If the names Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais don't sound familiar, they're the guys from the Ong Bak and The Raid series respectively. That alone brings so much action credibility to this it's insane. Between the two of them they've probably injured or killed like 40 stuntmen or something. I mean, not really, but if you watch the movies it's hard to imagine some of those stuntmen aren't permanently paralyzed or dead.
I'm sure there's a synopsis of the movie, but who cares. Watching this for the gripping plot would be like watching a Keanu Reeves movie for the acting.
I believe this is technically Saw VIII, but they've decided to go with Jigsaw for the title because maybe the producers have lost faith in the audience's ability to figure out roman numerals. What really worked in the earlier films was how simple the traps were, focusing more on the psychological aspects of the victims. Now it's like Jigsaw has a team of NASA scientists working around the clock to get these things assembled.
They can pretend all they want this is some standalone water creature movie, but there's no way this isn't a Hellboy prequel and probably an origin story for Abe Sapien. I don't care what anybody says. It's Guillermo del Toro and everything points to this fish-man-thing as being Abe Sapien. Sure, they didn't title it Abe Sapien: The Movie, but it's still very clearly a movie about Abe Sapien. Even if the creature turns out to be called something else and has a completely different origin story and ends up dying, it's still an Abe Sapien origin movie. Even if it's actually a re-imagining of Creature from the Black Lagoon it's still an Abe Sapien origin movie. That's just how these things work.
UPDATE: Guillermo del Toro has blatantly denied this is an Abe Sapien prequel. But, ya know, if you ask me it's still definitely an Abe Sapien prequel.
Sorry for the lack of updates. We've been trying to figure out what to do with the site and clearly we've decided on turning it into a Tommy Wiseau fan dedication page. Anyway, to anybody still checking in, here's the first teaser trailer for The Disaster Artist, the film chronicling the making of Tommy Wiseau's legendary film The Room. People who have already screened the film have been praising James Franco's portrayal of Tommy Wisseau, so I'm going to assume either they're liars or this clip isn't representative of the whole movie since he doesn't seem to be nailing the essence of Tommy Wiseau here. His accent is too understandable and, honestly, the actual Tommy Wiseau seems like more of a caricature than Franco's caricature of him.
