Last month, fans noticed an interesting detail in the Super Bowl TV spot for J.J. Abrams‘ Super 8: a film frame showing the date 03/11/11. We speculated at the time that March 11 would be the release date for the first Super 8 trailer, especially as Abrams had previously announced that we could expect to see the trailer around March.
Though we still don’t have official confirmation, new information indicates that our theory was probably correct — and that we can therefore expect to see the Super 8 trailer before Battle: Los Angeles and Red Riding Hood when they open this weekend. Read more after the jump.

Catherine Hardwicke may not have really been given the chance to play with werewolves in the Twilight series, but she’s done the next best thing: she’s directed Red Riding Hood, in which Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman are inhabitants of a medieval village that is beset by a werewolf.
Sadly, if predictably, the film looks to be going for tone and content that is very similar to Twilight. The first trailer just hit, and you can see it after the break. Read More »

Virginia Madsen is the latest recruit for Catherine Hardwicke‘s medieval thriller Red Riding Hood, which is shooting in Vancouver. The script by David Leslie Johnson sets a wildly altered version of the Little Red Riding Hood story in a medieval village beset by a werewolf.

One of the more interesting-looking movies of the fall is Mark Romanek‘s adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro‘s novel Never Let Me Go. The trailer arrived recently, and it makes the picture look elegant and puzzling — just the sort of gorgeous enigma that could be an antidote to the increasingly terrible movies of summer 2010. With a cast that includes Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, Sally Hawkins and more, the film, written by Alex Garland, has a good collection of talent. Can’t wait to see it, frankly.
Originally the film was set for a limited October 1 opening, with a couple weeks of expansion to follow. Now the picture will bow on September 15. That pulls it out of direct competition with Let Me In and The Social Network, the latter of which could end up being competition for the adult audience Never Let Me Go will rely upon. Hopefully this will be a good move for the film, rather than one that sees it lost among the opening salvo of fall fare and the chaos of coverage from the Toronto Film Festival.
After the break, new dates for Steve Carell’s Crazy, Stupid Love and Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood. Read More »
