Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new teaser trailer for their 50th full-length animated feature Tangled.
Directed by Byron Howard & Nathan Greno (the co-director and head of story on Bolt respectively), this new telling of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel (the original title of the film), will transport audiences “to a stunning CG fantasy world complete with the iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and, of course, the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses. Expect adventure, heart, humor, and hair, lots of hair.” The lead heroine is voiced by Mandy Moore while Chuck‘s Zachary Levi will play a “dashing bandit” named Flynn Ryder who hits the road with the “rebellious, teenage hair apparent.”
I’m definitely digging the watercolor/storybook-look they are employing with this new film. And the trailer is definitely playing up the prince’s character, likely in an effort to appeal to more boys. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

This Sunday night, the Disney Channel is going to have a first look at Tangled, the new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios film. They have begun airing a 15 second commercial with the first real footage from the movie to promote the first look. Watch the commercial, embedded after the jump. I’m sure the whole “first look” will be online sometime next week.

The Steve Carell / Ryan Gosling comedy that may or may not be called Crazy, Stupid Love is quickly adding actors. I Love You, Philip Morris directors John Requa and Glen Ficarra have already nabbed Emma Stone and Julianne Moore, and now they’re bringing in ex-figure skater Analeigh Tipton. She’s been part of America’s Next Top Model and will be seen in The Green Hornet later this year.
Film has Carell and Moore as a married couple who start divorce proceedings when she confesses an affair. Depressed, Carell meets Gosling’s character, who offers to help him get back in the game with women. Meanwhile, Carell’s son is in love with his babysitter (Tipton), who has a thing for Carell. Meanwhile, Gosling has struck out with Emma Stone, who eventually factors back into the story. [Variety]
After the break, Dermot Mulroney assembles a cast for his directorial debut, and Tom Arnold takes a spot on Peter Berg’s Battleship. Read More »
Not a lot of cast announcements this week, as Sundance has a great deal of Hollywood on hold. But there’s one big story and a handful of small ones to report. The big one is that Will Ferrell is reportedly going to star in a remake of I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single. That’s a French film from 2006, and in this version Ferrell would play “a 40-something bachelor whose seven sisters and mom try to force him to get married, prompting him to ask a friend’s sister to leave him at the altar so that everyone will leave him alone.” No writer or director is yet on board.

After the break, new projects for Jay Mohr, Mandy Moore and Kellan Lutz. Read More »

Since the now infamous Cannes Film Festival screening which resulted in a wave of bad buzz like never seen before, Richard Kelly has been trying to do damage control on his sophomore effort, a follow-up his hit cult first film Donnie Darko. Southland Tales has been re-cut, enhanced with new special effects (which evident in the trailer are not too impressive), and is said to be a totally different movie. And now finally, the movie trailer has hit the web, and it’s everything I hoped the movie might look like. Call me a fanboy, but I want to love this movie. There has been some recent conversation in the comments on this site about the differences between bloggers and critics, and I think that’s one of them. Critics are paid to be critical. Bloggers are paid to be fans. And when things go wrong, they are allowed to be unrelentingly honest about a film, star, director or writer (I’ve even received a few e-mails that I can print from actors, writers, and directors that took issue with some of my comments). But the truth is, most of the bloggers want to see a movie like Resident Evil 3 (sadly, we helped promote the film, but Sony has shut all media out in hopes of keeping the bad buzz from hitting you guys). I know, this is a rant for another time, another post.
I’m really looking forward to Richard Kelly’s new film. I really dig the great Pixies song used in the trailer (Wave of Mutilation), the Moby soundtrack and the play against the famous TS Eliot quote: “This is how the world ends, not with a bang, but with a whimper.” I’ve even read the prequel graphic novels, which I can highly recommend. I don’t see how this film could make sense if you didn’t read them. And maybe that was the problem with the Cannes screening. Check out the new trailer for yourself after the jump.

Cinematical has posted the new theatrical poster for Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales, and it doesn’t look good.
Don’t get me wrong. I want Southland Tales to be good. Even if it isn’t good, I want it to make money just because I feel Richard Kelly somehow deserves it. But when a movie distributor clearly has no idea how to sell a film, or starts using deceptive marketing materials, that is usually a sure sign that the film will fail at the box office. This poster has too much going on, and gives me no indication of what this movie is about. The double poster layout is confusing, and the film’s stars are clearly in focus to attract an audience that might not otherwise enter into such a film. It seems like something that would be devised by a marketing department for the DVD release of a failed theatrical movie (Donnie Darko anyone?).
Check out the new poster after the jump.

Someone sent us some new photos from Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales. But first some news for Mandy Moore fans: A month ago Mandy Moore made a comment, wondering if she still appeared in the movie, after director Richard Kelly announced that the film had undergone major reedits:
“I play The Rock’s wife in the movie, if I’m still in the movie at all,” Moore told Sci-Fi. “They had to cut it down so much, and maybe they just cut out my character altogether.”
Mandy Moore fans need not worry, Kelly has confirmed:
“Mandy Moore is still very much in the film… and very little of her role was cut.”
Okay, now for the photos. The first one can be seen above the news story and shows Justin Timberlake and is titled “All These Things I’ve Done”. We’ll continue with more after the jump.
