The Last Starfighter trailer

My first memory as a human being is of The Last Starfighter. I was four years old, sitting in the back seat of my mom’s old station wagon at the Middletown Drive-In, and poof. My first memory is looking up at the screen and seeing Nick Castle‘s exciting and awesome sci-fi film.

If you haven’t seen The Last Starfighter, you’re missing a movie that was about 30 years ahead of its time. In it, a young human named Alex (Lance Guest) is recruited by an alien race to fight a war to save the universe. How is he recruited? Because he’s the best person in the world at a video game called Starfighter.

With video games more popular than ever, the idea of an alien race using them to recruit sounds like an incredibly modern idea. So why not reimagine The Last Starfighter in a modern context? YouTube user Tim Gonzales did just that. Below, watch the modernized Last Starfighter trailer. Read More »

‘The Woman in Black 2 : Angel of Death’ Trailer

Woman in Black 2 trailer

The Woman in Black was something of a surprise success — the old-school supernatural thriller had the advantage of surprise, and of Daniel Radcliffe in one of his first post-Potter roles. Radcliffe and the surprise factor are not a part of the sequel, but there’s still a serious creep factor in The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death, as a bus full of kids fleeing the Blitz in London arrive at the supernaturally dangerous Eel Marsh House. (And the film is called Angel of Death, which should be enough to generate some interest.) Check out the full-length Woman in Black 2 trailer below. This is a much different trailer compared to the one we saw last month. It is more focused and much more compact — it’s one of my new favorite one-minute edits.

American heist trailer

Joke all you want about Hayden Christensen‘s performances in the Star Wars prequels, but the guy has some chops. Sure, those two films weren’t great, but around the same time he crushed Life as a House and Shattered Glass, two highly underrated films. Since then he hasn’t exactly stayed in the spotlight, choosing to only do movies every few years. In part because of good will generated by those two indie roles, it’s always great to see him.

His latest role is in American Heist, where Christensen plays the brother of Oscar-winner Adrien Brody. Brody plays a hardened criminal who coaxes his rehabilitated brother (Christensen) to do one more big job. It’s a familiar set up to be sure, but with co-stars Jordana Brewster and Akon, there’s a distinct Fast and Furious vibe to this one. Check out the American Heist trailer below. Read More »

Age of Adaline

You’d think eternal youth and immortality would be gifts, but in TV and movies it’s as often as not a curse. Vampires and mutants alike angst over the unfairness of having to remain young and beautiful while the world spins on. And in The Age of Adaline, Blake Lively joins the pity party.

The Gossip Girl alum plays a 27-year-old woman rendered ageless thanks to a freak accident in the 1930s. As her loved ones start to grow old and die off, she becomes withdrawn — until a handsome man (Michiel Huisman, a.k.a. Daario Naharis v2.0 from Game of Thrones) draws her out of her shell. Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford also star. Watch the Age of Adaline trailer after the jump.

Cinderella

Disney’s wave of live-action fairy tales continues next spring with Kenneth Branagh‘s Cinderella. Unlike Maleficent or Oz The Great and Powerful, however, Cinderella doesn’t come at the tale from a different character’s perspective. Instead, it looks like a pretty straightforward retelling of the classic story.

Lily James plays young Ella, Cate Blanchett her evil stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter her fairy godmother, and Richard Madden the handsome prince. Watch the first Cinderella trailer after the jump.

_N8A9026.NEF

After perfecting her plain-girl act in Arrested Development, Mae Whitman (her?) is trying to shake it off in The Duff. She plays Bianca, a high school senior who’s dismayed to realize she’s considered the DUFF — Designated Ugly Fat Friend — to her prettier pals. In an effort to reinvent herself, she enlists the help of handsome popular jock Wesley (Robbie Amell).

It all sounds pretty silly, starting with the notion that Whitman is ugly and fat. But this is movie-land, where Rachel Leigh Cook was once considered freakishly repulsive because she dared wear overalls and glasses. And where we’re supposed to believe Amell, a 26-year-old former male model, is a typical teenager. Hit the jump to watch The Duff trailer.

Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher is getting a lot of attention for its tone, its performances, and Steve Carell’s nose. But that title proved to be irresistable for one editor, and now we can show you something that was probably inevitable. Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher is exactly what you think it might be: a mash-up of the trailers for Foxcatcher and Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Specifically, it uses the audio from the new film with the images of Anderson’s movie. Some parts work better than others, but the bits that do work are, well, fantastic. Read More »

project almanac trailer

We’ve been talking about Dean Israelite‘s Project Almanac for what seems like forever. Jumping back in time, the idea first got picked up by Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes in 2012. Cameras then started rolling Summer 2013 aimed at a February 2014 release date. In that time, the title changed to Welcome to Yesterday. However the distributor, Paramount, decided to hold the film back once that date got close. It was retitled Project Almanac and it had a pretty successful, buzzy screening at Comic-Con.

Which brings us to the present. A second first trailer for Project Almanac has been released with the film set to hit theaters January 30. In it you’ll see what a group of teenagers might do if they found out how to time travel in their garage. Watch the Project Almanac Trailer below. Read More »
