Christmas came late this year. Or whatever gift-oriented holiday is applicable to you.
Definitely outstanding work for a first feature.
That strange, omnipresent force that compels Woody Allen to make movies has struck again, and the result has been picked up by Sony Pictures Classics.
The new Predators red band international trailer is here, and you know what that means: blood! How refreshing. I wish I lived in international instead of the United States. In international, they don't kowtow to fat housewives and Methodist ministers when it comes to on-screen violence. At any rate, if you're as excited as I am about the Predators movie, I'd like to invite you to join my cool new club, the Pred-o-philes! To join, head over to your local police station and tell the officer on duty that you want to register as a Pred-o-phile, and he'll take care of all the necessary paperwork. Don't forget to tell 'em Jame sent you! Watch the Predators red band trailer below.
We have to use a camcorder on our own TVs? Did we lose a friggen war, or something?A television spot for Predators has hit the airwaves, and if you're in to poorly dubbed video segments recorded with a camcorder, then we've got the clip for you!The spot, which is airing on Spike, features decloaking Predators, strange, four-legged animals, and a giant, hook-nosed bird-creature played by Adrian Brody. He must have spent hours in the makeup chair to look that menacing. (Dead Central)See the new Predators TV trailer after the jump.
Splice is the latest mistake from the sci-fi horror genre, having no thrills or logic in its pseudo-hipster science. A major disappointment comes from its talented cast of Adrien…

Brody faces off with a Predator disco ball. Now you all can finally see what those lucky f*cks at SXSW saw last Saturday. I'm considering being on board for this new Predators installment, but I can't yet fully commit. I have to first suspend my disbelief that Adrian Brody can play a mercenary (isn't that nose a hazard in the field?), and that Lawrence Fishburne can't stop a Predator cold in its tracks by simply shooting it the stink-eye. Here's your context from IGN: Brody plays Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human "predators" that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. Yakuza and death squad members finally working together. And they say progress isn't being made in the world. Isn't that right, Walton Goggins? Walton: "Who's your daddy now?!" Man, I hope his character dies in the first act… Check out the trailer after the jump. Predators rips theaters a new asshole July 7.
Opening night of the South by Southwest film festival featured a preview of footage from Predators. Austin local Robert Rodriguez brought a teaser trailer and clip and spoke to the audience about the upcoming sequel. More from him and director Nimrod Antal later, but first some thoughts on the footage. The teaser trailer, which Rodriguez said was likely to release with Repo Men, got the tone of the original Arnold movie right. It’s all shots of the human characters getting stalked. The camera pushes in on their faces as they turn around to face their unseen (for now) attacker. There are a few hints of familiar creature features, and a brief money shot, but it’s all buildup. Check out the teaser and more after the jump.
I loved Rian Johnson's first film, Brick* – the neo-hard boiled detective story set amongst high school social circles. It was the one with a bespectacled Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the anachronistic dialogue and the fantastic score by Johnson's brother. I saw it three times in the theaters. Even bought it on DVD. But as I sat down for my screening of Rian Johnson's followup, The Brothers Bloom, a wave of doubt washed over me. No way he can do it again, I thought. Besides, the trailers made it seem like a hodgepodge of styles culled from Johnson's contemporaries. It was Hudson Hawk through the off-kilter lens of Wes Anderson. Not necessarily a bad thing (I'm one of the few with fond memories of Hawk), but it wasn't promising to be a revelation like Brick…
