Editor Kees van Dijkhuizen has put together a tremendous Cinema 2009 retrospective. He's mashed together an enormous amount of 2009 film clips for his piece, 1 Year, 342 Movies, 12 Months of Production, 7 Minutes. Think of it as a more whimsical Trailer To End All Trailers.From Kees: "2009 proved that innovation is rewarded, and for that reason, I've decided no film should be left behind." For the most part, he's true to his word. The only thing missing from this clip is Nic Cage and his singing iguanas.

I'm pretty sure that if I attended this tea party I would be the biscuit this motley crew served their LSD on. Who is the Mad Hatter's interior designer anyway? You can't mix multi-colored tablecloths and then just place a caterpillar on a giant mushroom in the foyer. It ruins the whole flow of the space!This new art proves to be just as trippy as the most recent trailer, and I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing. I still haven't decided if I'm excited about this new Tim Burton cacophony of mental wails, but a few Xanax might change my mind. (via JoBlo)
This raccoon needs to fire his agent. If you thought that the box office failure of Old Dogs signaled a sea change in American cinema, I'm sorry to say that you need to be less stupid. Below is the trailer for Furry Vengeance, a movie about woodland animals trying to destroy Brendan Fraser. Don't worry yourselves, animals. His management team will destroy him in due time. Furry Vengeance opens in theaters April 2nd, 2010, just in case you're looking for an empty theater that day. Commit eyeball-seppuku by watching the trailer after the jump…
Lily Cole is one of those models that you look at and think to yourself, "How is that girl a model?" She's hot but also kinda weird looking, like there's too much face for her features, even though her eyes are huge. I have absolutely nothing to complain about below the neck. A word from Lily: "Kate Moss has had such a phenomenal career and I wouldn't even like to compare myself to her."Lily's got more meat on her bones than Kate, which is nice. Maybe she'll become known as the fat Kate Moss, meaning healthy-looking. Check out more fat Kate Moss pics after the jump.
France has given America so much over the years; the Statue of Liberty, cheese, a place for Johnny Depp to sleep, and now this new Inception trailer. I'm not sure if this is the trailer that will be attached to Sherlock Holmes later this week but I am sure that it looks intriguing and deserves a watch. Leonardo DiCaprio contends with a city that is literally curling in on itself as if it were being potato-peeled. It's hard to say what exactly is going on other than that, but Christopher Nolan's visual style has me hungry for more. Sadly, I failed French but I'll try to translate anyway. Hmmm. All I've got is "the duck… is tall." What does that even mean?? Is that part of another one of those damn confusing virals? (Making Of) Bend your mind around the trailer after the jump…
Last week we showed you the hard rockin' trailer for Ridley Scott's down and dirty Robin Hood film. Today we have the UK poster which has the softer, more subtle approach of Russell Crowe trying to kill us. It features an intense Crowe murderously staring down the shaft of his pointy, shooty thing.More importantly, the poster reminds us that director Ridley Scott and Crowe once famously teamed up for Gladiator. The point they are trying to make is, if you loved seeing Russell Crowe stab and beat people in that film then you will probably enjoy him stabbing and beating AND shooting people in this film."I'll teach ya to readjust lights while I'm thespianing, ya c*nt."Given Crowe's explosive temper, the still looks more like he's threatening an unlucky lensman a la Christian Bale. Save where Bale uses his words, Crowe goes the more direct route of shooting them in the face. Robin Hood arrives in theaters May 14th, 2010. (HeyUGuys via First Showing)

Leonardo DiCaprio scowls in the new mystery Who Farted? The Motion Picture Talkie. Just kidding, you guys. Martin Scorsese didn't make a movie about someone farting. Though if he did, smart money would have Max von Sydow being the culprit. He seems like the type.This poster is nearly identical to the earlier poster with a few hardly noticeable changes. Mainly they spruced up the color to make it less dismal and depressing. Afterall, the last thing I want to be is bummed out when I see a movie about pyschologically crippled people stuffed into cages against their will. (CHUD)
The Karate Kid (2010) – Watch more Funny Videos Now, this is a trailer all about how I learned to karate kick and flip upside down. If you'd like to take a minute and hear about this thing, I'll tell you how I became the only black kid in Beijing. My moms moved to China and that really sucked. In the playground, getting my ass beat up. I talked to one Asian girl and then I'm like, "Damn! Did Jackie Chan just break off that kid's hand?" (via Yahoo)
I have never met one male that doesn't know and love Rachel McAdams. Some people say she has a big forehead, and I say to them, "YOU'VE got a big forehead!" I'm childish like that. Catch Rachel in Sherlock Holmes on Christmas Day giving Robert Downey Jr. sass. A word from Rachel: "If I hurt someone, if I were to accidentally poke someone's eye out, I would laugh. And then I'd say, 'I'm sorry, I really do feel bad,' but then I'm on the floor rolling."We share the same affinity for gauging people's eyes out! Our first date will certainly be an interesting one… :O Don't you touch Rachel's eyes in the pics after the jump!
Here we have a poster and trailer for Knight & Day. The film stars Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, and Cameron Diaz's donger. Seriously, poster design guy? You're supposed to airbrush OUT the lead actress's penis. It's that lack of attention to detail that got you fired from designing Lady Gaga album covers. Check out Tom Cruise's comedic and karate chops in the trailer after the jump…
DIRECTOR: James MangoldCAST: Tom Cruise; Cameron Diaz; Maggie Grace; Peter Saarsgard; Paul Dano; Marc BlucasSYNOPSIS: An action-comedy centered on a fugitive couple on a glamorous and sometimes deadly adventure where nothing and no one – even themselves – are what they seem. Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the globe, with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust.
The red band trailer for Kick-Ass certainly lives up to its name by showcasing Chloe Moretz's foul-mouthed Hit Girl as she kicks every ass in sight. More specifically, she shoots a dude through his cheek, cuts off a Malcom Jamal Warner lookalike's leg, and drops the "C" bomb on a room full of thugs. Now I'm all kinds of homesick. Seeing such a young girl growl the "C" word really makes me miss my nieces.
This morning we have a final crazy and creepy poster for The Crazies. The image shows a man (probably a Crazy) dragging a bloody pitchfork down a long hallway. At least, I think it's blood. Looks pretty dark and inky. Oh hey! Did you guys get into my henna?!!!The Crazies opens on February 26th but you can watch the latest trailer here. Then make up your on plot around that and convince people you saw an early screening, you big liar.
Here's a teaser trailer for the movie Marmaduke, based on the classic comic strip Great Dane that isn't nearly as cool as Scooby Doo. Owen Wilson, fresh off of Marley & Me, provides the voice of the beast, who's apparently an angst-ridden teenager. Are we talking a teenager in dog years or people years, because if it's dog years than that means he's probably going to die soon. If that's the case then yay.

Last week we saw Leonardo DiCaprio knee-deep in the first poster for Christopher Nolan's Inception. And now we have a second poster which appears to be an aerial photo taken in Chicago's historic Inception District. What? You've never been??!!! There's this tiny hole in the wall that serves amazing tapas. Tell Brian I sent you.You can catch the second teaser in front of Sherlock Holmes and see the first teaser right here.
"Don't get fresh with me Richard Belzer." Luc Besson's latest French language film, Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adele Blanc-Sec (rough translation: French Tomb Raider) has a new teaser. Not much is shown in this first look. We see a guy with awesome Mythbusters-esque facial hair, a French Wilford Brimley, and a pterodactyl. We do not get to lay our eyes on hot French weather girl turned movie star Louise Bourgoin, but I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of her in the new year. Early reports are that this film has a 95% chance of being mostly kick-ass. (/Film) Get out your French-to-English dictionary and check out the trailer after the jump…
DIRECTOR: Luc BessonCAST: Louise Bourgoin; Gilles Lellouche; Phillippe NahonSYNOPSIS: An adventure set in the early party of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions.
Goodfellas is one of the best movies ever made, but it offers education as well as entertainment. Below are nine of the most important messages you should hold on to after watching Martin Scorsese's classic, and while making your flimsy 2010 resolutions. So read on and pay attention, you rat, you. Everybody takes a beating sometimes.
Being a big fan of Brittany Murphy's work in Clueless, Sin City, and 8 Mile, I was saddened by her sudden passing yesterday morning. Even though many of her projects weren't exactly my cup of tea, whenever I did see one of her films I always thought she brought a fun, bubbly nature to the screen. There's no doubt that she possessed a great deal of talent. It's a shame we can no longer see it grow.Check out a few more fun, bubbly pics of Brittany after the jump.
"We stole these from J.J. Abrams."Jonah Hill's 21 Jump Street is inching closer to "thing that may actually happen" status. There's news that Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks to take the reins. The movie, of course, centers on young cops who go undercover in high schools to prevent teen crimes. No strangers to comedic teen angst, Lord and Miller are also the creators of Clone High, a clever animated series whose untimely cancellation is a crime worse than anything Randy Quaid's wife ever did. Negotiations are in the works but it seems likely the duo will get the gig. After all, Jonah Hill really loves Meatballs. (Variety)
Several news outlets, including TMZ, are reporting that Brittany Murphy passed away this morning due to cardiac arrest. This is especially sad considering the actress was only 32 years old. Murphy was best known for her role as Tai in Clueless, where she got us all rollin' with the homies. You'll be missed, Brittany, so now we offer you one for being our homie these past several years.
Sarah! Your date is here!!Point your hungry eyeballs toward the new Daybreakers poster and feed them its creepiness. Check out the trailer if you don't know about the film's society of vampires plot. But is it really practical to hang upside down while wearing a suit and tie? Gravity would cause them to flop down on your face. That proves it! Double Stick tape is a vampire's best friend.

The Coen Brothers are casting their new film True Grit, and they're looking for a 12-16 year old girl to fill the main role of Mattie Ross. As you'll note on the casting specs, YOU MUST BE A 12-16 YEAR OLD GIRL. It doesn't count if you feel like a 12-16 year old girl on the inside, or like to feel 12-16 year old girls. You must actually BE ONE. Take heed.Get a bigger look at the casting sheet by clicking here.
Lawrence is the one on the left.Lawrence Fishburne has been cast as Noland in the Robert Rodriguez produced, Nimrod Antal directed sequel Predators. There isn't info on who this Noland fella is or what he does in the movie, but Fishburne is currently playing him with gusto in Austin, Texas. The rest of the cast includes Topher Grace, Adrien Brody, Walton Goggins, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo, and Walt Goggins. The new installment of the Predator franchise is about a group of humans who find themselves stranded on a planet home to Predators and must survive the horrors they encounter. I can think of no worse place to land than a planet of Predators. Wait, I take that back. A planet of these things would be far more terrifying:(Shudder…)Predators takes over theaters July 9th, 2010.(via BloodyDisgusting)
Emily Blunt is marrying Jim Halpert from The Office. Boooo. John Krasinski gets to hear her sexy British accent every morning when he wakes up and every night before he goes to sleep. He's already got Pam Beesly. Way to be selfish John Jim! A word from Emily: "I'd love to be exciting and say that I was the rebel at school, but sadly I wasn't."Rebels are intimidating to guys without motorcycles, such as I. Granted I still would have been too nervous to talk to you at school, but at least I wouldn't have been afraid of you. Don't worry, the pics after the jump are VERY nice.
Twas a fine decade for facial hair in cinema. There were men donning mustaches a plenty, but we toiled and twirled the 'staches we can't grow and picked the twenty best. Did we leave off your favorite one? Let us know who else sported an exemplary mustache on film in the past ten years.
Steve Carell and Tina Fey can't get enough of one another. Their movie Date Night doesn't open until April, but it now seems they are eyeballing their next project together. Mail-Order Groom is a comedy about a naive woman who ends up with an Eastern European husband. And she'll probably think the food he eats is weird and gross.This is only in the maybe stage right now due to their respective schedules. But wouldn't it be fun if they become an on-screen duo? Like another Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn. Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. Chunk and Sloth. Would you like that? No?? Whatever. I was just asking on the behalf of a friend anyhow. (THR)
