tale of tales trailer

You really don’t know what you’re getting when you settle in for a new Matteo Garrone film. The Italian director has been making feature films for twenty years, but he achieved international renown for his stunning and brutal crime film Gomorrah in 2008. He then shifted gears in a major way for Reality, a comic drama about an ordinary man whose life is thrown into chaos after he’s cast on a reality show. Garrone’s latest film is another big left turn: a fantasy anthology based one of the world’s most influential fairy tale collections.

The Tale of Tales trailer is filled with stunning shots and oddball moments and it certainly looks like a must-see for fans of offbeat cinema. But most importantly, it features a scene where Salma Hayek eats the heart of a sea monster.

Some Kind of Beautiful trailer

You can take the man out of the James Bond franchise, but you can’t take the James Bond franchise out of the man. Or so it seems based on the Some Kind of Beautiful trailer, which stars Pierce Brosnan as a notorious British womanizer. Sound familiar?

But while 007’s adventures usually revolved around assassins, femmes fatale, and megalomaniacs, the issues here are more mundane — marriage, a kid, an awkward love triangle. (Of course, given that said love triangle involves Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba, you could argue his problems are just as exciting.) Watch the Some Kind of Beautiful trailer after the jump.  Read More »

The Prophet

The summer movie season is finally here, and with it comes the usual glut of big-budget blockbusters. But if you’re in the mood for something a bit more offbeat, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is definitely one to look out for.

Inspired by the collection of prose poetry essays that gives the movie its title, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet turns those poems into distinct segments, each done up in a different, gorgeously unique animation style. All are knit together by a framing device involving an artist (Liam Neeson), his housekeeper (Salma Hayek), and her daughter (voiced by Quvenzhané Wallis).

The Prophet trailer

Salma Hayek produced and provides the voice for the animated version of Kahlil Gibran‘s book The Prophet, and the film’s first trailer is now available. The book is a collection of poems and essays, and in keeping with that original structure the film is directed by a collection of directorial teams, to tell the story of “the unlikely friendship between a young mischievous girl and an imprisoned poet,” with a voice cast that also includes Liam Neeson, Quvenzhané Wallis, John Krasinski, Frank Langella, Alfred Molina. Check out The Prophet trailer below.

Everly Review

Christmas came and went last week in the real world, but in the first Everly trailer the holiday has just arrived. And it’s not looking very merry or bright for the poor title character.

Salma Hayek leads the Joe Lynch-directed actioner as a call girl who’s become a police informant. Needless to say, this doesn’t sit well with her mob boss ex (Hiroyuki Watanabe). He sends a string of killers to her apartment in order to finish off her and her family, forcing Everly to defend herself in any way she can. The film hits VOD in January then theaters in February but you can watch the Everly trailer after the jump. Read More »

Everly Review

With Everly, director Joe Lynch answers the age old question, just how much action can you stage in a single room? The answer, not surprising, is a lot. Salma Hayek is the title character, a hooker turned informant who has just been discovered by her employer. Her mission is to stay alive over the next few hours in hopes she can save her family. And over that time, she’ll be forced to stay in the apartment because of the seemingly non-stop barrage of people coming to kill her.

Written by Yale Hannon, from a story by he and Lynch, Everly sounds like a pretty simple movie and it is. It’s also a Christmas movie, giving this one woman vs. the world, in a confined space, film a decidedly and deliberate Die Hard vibe. The film never reaches the heights of that classic, but it keeps us suitably engaged because we never ever know what’s going to come through that door next. Read the rest of our Everly review below.

Everly

The Hall H lineup tends to consist of movies that are already getting a lot of hype, but every year there are a few under-the-radar projects that get their moment in the sun as well. One of the latter this year was Everly, described by director Joe Lynch as “Die Hard in a room.” Which I suppose makes Salma Hayek Bruce WIllis.

The action-packed thriller follows a woman who’s stuck in her apartment as her mob boss ex sends thugs to torment and kill her. The Everly Comic-Con panel included the first footage from the film, involving gangsters, grenades, and guns a-plenty. Hit the jump for our Everly footage description and Everly Comic-Con panel highlights.

Grown Ups 2

The summer schedule is chock full of sequels we’re dying, or at least very curious to see. This weekend alone has Fast & Furious 6 going up against Before Midnight, for example. Monsters University and The Wolverine are due out in the following months. And so on.

Today, however, we have a trailer for what may be the least-anticipated follow-up of the season. (Least-anticipated by the hardcore movie crowd, that is.) Grown Ups 2 reunites Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin James, and Chris Rock  in their hometown for still more hilarious shenanigans. The film also brings some fresh blood into the mix, in the form of Taylor Lautner, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Shaquille O’Neil. Watch the video after the jump.
