Here’s the first full-length trailer for The Adventures of Tintin, which Steven Spielberg directed as a mo-cap animated adaptation of one of Herge‘s classic Tintin tomes. This is our first good look at the action and adventure promised by the title and poster, and our best look yet at the animation, produced by Peter Jackson and enabled by WETA. Jamie Bell plays Tintin, who finds a replica of the ship Unicorn, and is led to treasure and danger. Andy Serkis plays his cohort Captain Haddock, while Simon Pegg and Nick Frost play the bumbling detectives Thompson and Thompson. This trailer gives a quick look at the villain Red Rackham (Daniel Craig) as it gives off the same sort of old-school adventure vibe that Steven Spielberg once captured so well in the first Indiana Jones films. Can The Adventures of Tintin bottle that same lightning once more? Make an early call by watching the trailer after the break. Read More »

Peter Jackson just released a video allowing us to fly across Middle Earth with him, scouting locations for The Hobbit. The first block of the massive 254 day shoot on Jackson’s two part version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s book recently came to a close and, to mark the occasion, the director has finally released his second production video. Video number one came soon after the beginning of filming and focused on the rituals of prepping such a huge undertaking. Now, almost three months later with 20% of the shoot in the bag, this second video focuses on location scouting for the second block of filming which beings in September. Check it out after the jump.

Here are two projects that might happen, but at this point the safest approach seems to be an emphasis on ‘might.’ One is a Jimi Hendrix biopic that has been gestating for some time with André Benjamin (aka André 3000 of OutKast) playing the iconic rocker. The other is a new version of George Orwell’s classic novel Animal Farm, which could be a reunion of Rise of the Planet of the Apes talents Andy Serkis and Rupert Wyatt. Details on both are after the break. Read More »
We just saw a new commercial for Rise of the Planet of the Apes that had a lot of new footage, but that 60-second piece was pulled from YouTube fairly quick. Now there is a UK trailer that has a lot of the same footage, and more. Beware: you’ll walk away from this feeling like you’ve seen way too much of the movie. Check it out after the break, if that isn’t a problem. Read More »
While the two previously released trailers for Rise of the Planet of the Apes have focused more on action, this brand new 60 second TV spot finally strays from that. In the film, James Franco plays Will, a scientist who develops a drug intended to cure his father (John Lithgow) of Alzheimer’s disease. Will also discovers that the drug increases the intelligence of an ape named Caesar (Andy Serkis) and decides to bring him home. This 60-second clip focuses more on that family aspect, gives us our first real good look at Tom Felton‘s character and then, of course, kicks up the action. From what I know about Rise, this 60 second look is the best representation of the film yet, both in its tone, structure and percentage of action. Check out the new-footage-filled clip after the jump. Read More »

See them all after the jump.

20th Century Fox has released a second movie trailer for Rupert Wyatt‘s Rise of the Planet of the Apes., starring James Franco, Andy Serkis, Frida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, and Tom Felton. The film is a prequel/reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise which takes place in present day with a science fact-like take on how animal testing leads to the end of the human race, and yes, the rise of the apes. The new trailer is more plot driven, concentrating on the animal testing set-up and the… rise of the apes. I’m a little bit worried that these trailers are overselling the third act action revolt, which much of the film comes from the set-up. But its looking good. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
