Mission Impossible 5 trailer

Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie dropped a little present for us on Sunday morning. They revealed the first Mission Impossible 5 trailer, along with a poster and title. That title: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. And, actually, it’s not even the full trailer. It’s a minute-long tease for the full trailer which will hit on Monday, March 23. Still, it’s the best trailer tease you’ve ever seen. None of this 20 seconds and no footage crap.

Check out the Mission Impossible 5 trailer below. Read More »

‘Man Up’ Trailer: Simon Pegg Woos Lake Bell

Man Up

When he’s not collaborating with Edgar Wright, beaming up James Kirk, or nearly fumbling missions with Ethan Hunt, Simon Pegg can apparently make for a pretty convincing romantic lead. At least that’s what the new Man Up trailer wants to believe, in which he plays a man who catches the eye of unlucky-in-love Lake Bell.

She’s a cynic who’s all but given up on finding love; he’s a charming romantic who’s been set up on a blind date. Through a series of only-in-the-movies mix-ups, he mistakes Bell for his blind date, and they proceed to hit it off before the embarrassing truth comes spilling out. Watch the Man Up trailer after the jump.

kill me three times trailer

Kill Me Three Times stars Simon Pegg as an assassin. Already, you’re probably interested. But Kill Me Three Times apparently has much, much more to offer than just that. Directed by Kriv Stenders, the film stars Pegg as an assassin hired by a husband (Callan Mulvey) to kill his wife (Alice Braga). The problem is, Pegg isn’t the only assassin on the lady’s tail. An assassin team, Sullivan Stapleton and Teresa Palmer, are also trying to kill her and that seems like the first of a multitude of escalating issues for everyone involved.

The film hits iTunes and on demand March 26 before going to theaters April 10. Now, the first Kill Me Three Times trailer has been released. Check out the hilarious, NSFW trailer below. Read More »
