With a midnight gross over $30 million, The Dark Knight Rises is on its way to an almost $100 million Friday. Christopher Nolan would certainly prefer you see the film in 70mm IMAX but, if you do, you won’t get the attached trailers (the film is simply too big). One of those trailers is Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman film Man of Steel, offering the first glimpse of the film outside of San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H. You can read about that footage here (and watch a video blog here) but, the bigger news is, there are apparently two different Man of Steel trailers playing in front of The Dark Knight Rises screenings right now.
One features a voice over by Pa Kent (Kevin Costner) the other, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and it seems like the placement is totally random. After the jump, we’ve got descriptions of both trailers, neither of which are as revealing as the Comic-Con reel. Read More »

I wish this post featured a good-quality embed of the new IMAX-exclusive trailer for Sam Mendes‘ film Skyfall, but the key word there is “exclusive.” At a weird and cool IMAX Remix event last night near the San Diego Comic Con, a display of footage from various IMAX films was capped off with a new trailer for the twenty-third James Bond film.
This trailer, I’m told, won’t go online, and will play only in IMAX theaters. Your best bet is to catch it in front of The Dark Knight Rises next week, but in the meantime you can read a few notes about what the trailer reveals, below. Read More »

It’s not like anyone needs another excuse to hit up Ridley Scott’s Prometheus this weekend, but in case you weren’t totally sold on Fox’s other big 3D summer releases, they’re sweetening the deal with a glimpse of one of this fall’s most intriguing films. The studio plans to unveil uncut clips from Ang Lee‘s literary adaptation Life of Pi before Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Ice Age: Continental Drift, the better to show off Lee’s apparently masterful work with 3D. More details after the jump.

Briefly: Jealous of all those people who got to see footage of Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained at Cannes earlier this week? You’ll get your chance soon enough. Variety reports the first trailer for Django will play with another very highly anticipated 2012 film, Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus, on June 8. More on this as we get closer.
A highly underrated moment in the history of The Simpsons was in 2006 when 20th Century Fox sneakily placed the first teaser trailer/announcement of The Simpsons Movie in front of Ice Age: The Meltdown. That relationship between Homer and Scrat continues next month as a 3D Simpsons short film will play in front of Ice Age: Continental Drift. It’s called The Longest Daycare and will star Maggie Simpson. Check out a teaser clip below. Read More »
In March, I posted an Wes Ball‘s awesome computer animated post-apocalyptic short film Ruin. I’ve heard that the short got many in Hollywood talking. Since the release, I’ve been waiting and expecting to see Ball’s name in a headline of a Hollywood trade news break.
That has yet to happen, so I was surprised when watching the trailer for J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau‘s new NBC television series Revolution to see a shot from Ball’s short film. How did a shot from an animated short film end up in a trailer for Bad Robot’s latest? Did JJ and crew pay Ball for the clip or was it completely ripped-off? Answers after the jump.
