sabotage-header-1

End of Watch director and Training Day writer David Ayer takes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, and Olivia Williams to the mean streets of Atlanta for the violent DEA story Sabotage. Arnie leads a DEA crew that gets into trouble when millions of dollars go missing after a huge cartel bust. (Or what looks like a bust, at least.) Worthington, slightly disguised with a shaved head, Enos, and Howard are part of his crew, and Williams is a local detective who is looking into cartel activity and murders.

While Schwarzenegger’s movies haven’t done big business since he really got back into the game, he was the most entertaining part of Escape Plan (he was really doing some acting, and had a great stretch of performance in German), and here he’s in super-serious mode, which could be a good time. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Machete Kills (9)

3D trailers are great if you’re watching them in a 3D movie theater with your 3D glasses on, but so-called 3D trailers on the Internet usually aren’t anything special. Since the effects don’t work on our computers, most “3D trailers” just turn out to be 2D trailers with action-packed scenes that we can sorta-kinda picture looking exciting in 3D.

But leave it to Robert Rodriguez‘s gleefully over-the-top Machete Kills to go over-the-top with its 3D Internet trailer. No, not even the world’s toughest ex-Federale can make your laptop suddenly support 3D technology. But he can offer a video with explosions so big, they can’t be contained by your average video player. See what we mean after the jump.

The Nut Job

Liam Neeson is no stranger to crime pics, but his latest falls very, very far outside the Taken wheelhouse. The Nut Job centers around an intrepid city squirrel (voiced by Will Arnett) who decides to stock up for the winter by robbing a nut store. Neeson voices the villain, a raccoon.

Also lending their voices to the animated comedy are Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, Stephen Lang, Maya Rudolph, and Jeff Dunham. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Machete Kills (10)

In Machete Kills, director Robert Rodriguez once again celebrates guns, babes, and manly men. This sequel to Machete finds many ways to combine those three factors, offering a new permutation every few minutes. The action is dumb and goofy and very self aware, and Machete Kills is occasionally kind of a blast. The cast is game for anything, and few actors stick around long enough to wear out their welcome.

If only the same could be said for the film, which is long, soggy, and distracted by it’s own excess. Machete Kills is a two-hour Robot Chicken special that features humans instead of action figures, and its schtick wears thin well before everyone runs out of energy.  Read More »

Ashton Kutcher Jobs

Apple addicts likely have August 16 starred on their iCalendar. That’s when the Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad is finally hitting theaters. Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, Jobs follows the iconic entrepreneur from his college days up through the creation, decline and eventual revitalization of the Apple brand. It had its world premiere at Sundance to decidedly mixed reviews and the distributor delayed the opening. The film is finally being released, though, and the first trailer has now been revealed.

jOBS (header size)

Jobs, the biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher, premiered at Sundance earlier this year to mixed reviews. Kutcher’s performance was surprisingly good, but the script was lacking. “Jobs is so hell-bent on cramming all these seminal moments into one film, it never builds much context around them. We never feel like they mean anything,” I wrote. “The film loves to tell us things, but never quite explains any in a satisfactory way.” Looking down the barrel of a quickly approaching Spring release with no real buzz, the distributor decided to delay the film.

Well Jobs, directed by Joshua Michael Stern, is back. Co-starring Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine, it’ll now open on August 16. Read the press release below. Read More »

The Host

There’s a segment of the population that will always turn out to see a movie advertised as being “based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer,” no matter what, and another segment that will avoid that movie like the plague, no matter what. Meyer’s first non-Twilight tale, the sci-fi romance The Host, doesn’t look likely to change the minds of diehards in either group. But for the rest of the population, there’s a new trailer to help them make up their minds.

Saoirse Ronan stars as Melanie Stryder, a young woman living on an Earth that’s been taken over by aliens. When one of the invaders tries to take control of her mind, Melanie’s consciousness tries to fight back. Max Irons and Jake Abel play her two handsome suitors, and Diane Kruger the leader of the extraterrestrials. Andrew Niccol directs. Watch the new video after the jump.
