‘Larry Crowne’ Trailer #2

Larry Crowne, the second film in which Tom Hanks worked behind the camera as director, is one that I’ve mostly passed over in the last few months. It stars Hanks as a guy who loses his job and goes to community college as part of an attempt to rebuild his future. He makes new friends, joins a scooter gang, and falls for one of his teachers, played by Julia Roberts. (Yep, it’s a big-screen alternate version of Community.)

Tom Hanks tweeted out a link to the film’s second trailer, which provides the first look at George Takei‘s work in the film, among other things. Check it out below. Read More »

The Pacific

Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and from the creators of “Band of Brothers”, The Pacific is a a 10-part HBO mini-series which tells the intertwined stories of three Marines, Robert Leckie (played by James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda), during America’s battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II. You might remember that we posted a promo trailer for the series back in March.

Produced on a reported budget of more $200 million (some have reported $250 million), and shot on location in Australia, the series follows (from an early press release) “The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day.”

HBO has begun airing a new trailer for this epic miniseries. Watch it now after the jump, and please leave your thoughts in the comments below!
