‘Gotham’ Trailer: The City Is a Ticking Bomb

gotham-red

There’s a new trailer for Fox’s Batman origin story Gotham, featuring James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) strolling to a crime scene, observed by all the new villains in his city. But Gordon’s been away, and now that he’s back in town he starts to realize the enormity of his task — how could he not, when he’s getting the evil eye from half a dozen people in this one alley alone?

Gotham also stars Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Zabryna Guevara, Erin Richards, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova. Early previews of the pilot led to praise being heaped on Taylor for his role as Oswald “The Penguin” Cobblepot, but the episode as a whole was well-liked. We’ve got to wait another couple months to see that pilot (unless you manage to catch it at Comic Con next week) but this new Gotham trailer might tide you over until then. Read More »

Big Hero 6 trailer

As if Disney Animation weren’t doing well enough already, this fall sees them joining forces with Marvel for the very first time. Big Hero 6 tells the story of young robotics prodigy Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter), who assembles a ragtag team of superheroes to save his town of San Fransokyo.

The first trailer was basically just a clip, showing Hiro trying to squeeze his puffy robot pal Baymax into an Iron Man-style suit. But today, we have a new Big Hero 6 trailer that teases a little more of the action that awaits — including a brief glimpse of the villain. Check it out after the jump.

Horns Teaser Trailer Daniel Radcliffe

Here’s the first teaser for the adaptation of Joe Hill‘s novel Horns, which comes from director Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Piranha 3D). Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ignatius, a guy whose girlfriend perishes under mysterious circumstances, leading most everyone to think Radcliffe is the person responsible. There’s more to it than that, and one of the story’s complications is that Ignatius grows horns, and finds that this new physical development also brings a power to compel others to admit hidden details about their lives. Juno Temple and Sabrina Carpenter also star in the film adapted by Keith Bunin; watch the Horns teaser below.

doctor who trailer Peter Capaldi

After a few teasing images and a couple teasing video bits, here’s the first full-length trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, featuring Peter Capaldi as the twelfth regeneration of the Doctor. The first two episodes of the new season are directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List), but most of what you’ll get from this trailer is a sense of unease on the part of the Doctor as he questions his own nature. Capaldi looks more clenched and intense than the last couple Doctors have been. Will he truly be a more introspective Doctor?

Oh, and there are Daleks, and also a T. rex trotting around in front of Parliament. So that’s interesting. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

 

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we ponder the sociological importance of the selfie, get morally confused with Joel Edgerton, have a gay old time, step out on our animated wife, and try and understand why music can dust the cobwebs off the elderly.
