John Wick trailer

Between this weekend’s The Drop and next month’s John Wick, handsome action stars snuggling adorable puppies could just be the next big movie trend. And just for the record, I would be totally okay with that.

Keanu Reeves leads John Wick as the title character, whose greatest joys in life are his sweet ride and his even sweeter dog. One day, some mean idiots led by Alfie Allen decide to take away his things. That turns out to be a huge mistake, because John Wick is actually a retired hitman who knows exactly how to go about getting his revenge. The first John Wick trailer has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.

Hercules trailer

January’s The Legend of Hercules failed to impress much of anyone when it opened this January. Fortunately for fans of the Greek hero, he gets a second opportunity to make an impression with this summer’s Hercules, directed by Brett Ratner.

Dwayne Johnson plays the title character, here a damaged soul haunted by an incident in his past. He’s called upon to save the world from mythological creatures, or something. The important thing is that the plot gives Johnson plenty of opportunities to wear next to nothing and flex his fearsome muscles. Watch the new full-length Hercules trailer after the jump.

In Jack the Giant Slayer, Bryan Singer engages in the time-honored tradition of taking a classic fairy tale and reshaping it to fit the times. Current trends being what they are, that means turning the film gritty and (relatively) realistic, with plenty of Lord of the Rings-style action.

Screenwriters David Dobkin and Darren Lemke take the basic touchstones of Jack and the Giant Beanstalk — the poor farm boy, the magic beans, the scary giants — but introduce several brand-new elements to the story. In this version, Jack (Nicholas Hoult) heads upward to rescue a beautiful princess (Eleanor Tomlinson) and stop her evil betrothed (Stanley Tucci) from taking over the kingdom. It’s a version of Jack that’s never been told in all the centuries that the character has been around. So why does it all feel so tiresomely familiar?

Bryan Singer’s ‘Jack the Giant Killer’ Trailer

Warner Bros has released the first movie trailer for Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Killer (which you can see in theaters attached to Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows in theaters this week). The film is an adult look at the Jack and the Beanstalk legend, starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor. The trailer is a bit underwhelming, and the effects look very early, at best. I’m still excited about what this film could be, as the dark fairytale genre is very promising. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

I like it! Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman has already cast a stellar group of British actors to play the seven dwarfs in the action film that will see the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) saving and mentoring Snow White (Kristen Stewart) rather than doing away with her as commanded by the evil queen (Charlize Theron). When the last of the primary seven dwarfs was cast I wondered if Gus, the young dwarf mentioned in the script as kind of a hanger-on, had been cut. Looks like he’s still in the picture, though, and he’ll be played by Nick Frost. Read More »
