Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?
This week we get on a dinosaur with Hitler, dissect one of the most heinous and active media figures of our time, feel empathy towards the less fortunate, get caught up with J.B. Smoove on the set of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and explore both sides of our sexuality. Read More »

Timo Vuorensola, who directed the ‘Nazis on the moon’ film Iron Sky, is now set to destroy the most recognizable face of the Nazi party.
Months ago we told you about the development of a film called I Killed Adolf Hitler, which is based on the graphic novel of the same title by the wonderful Norwegian cartoonist Jason. The film is scripted by D.C. Walker, and features “two hitmen sent back to 1927 from 1977 by a Jewish scientist to kill the Fuhrer and avert the Holocaust. Complications ensue when disaster strikes.” Oh, and there’s a love story.
Now the production has passed on some comments from Vuorensola about the film he’ll make as his follow-up to Iron Sky. The most interesting bit is that he plans to digitally create Hitler before letting the assassins try to kill him. Read More »

We haven’t covered Iron Sky much, despite the fact that it is a sci-fi comedy about Nazis attacking Earth from their base on the moon. We haven’t done a lot of coverage because there hasn’t been much to cover besides a pre-production teaser and the basic concept itself. But now the production has shot some footage for the film, which is being financed piecemeal. A teaser has been assembled so you can get an idea of what to expect from the very high-concept flick. Check it out after the break. Read More »
