Just in time for the Oaks Celebration of the 136th Kentucky Derby, we have the trailer for Secretariat. Directed by Randall Wallace, it stars Diane Lane as a horse owner with a vagina (GASP!), that attempts to lead her thoroughbred to Triple Crown glory. John Malkovich co-stars as the horse's trainer and personal stylist. Here that swelling score? That means you can lump this one into Disney's growing catalogue of "Animals Who Defy the Odds to Blow Your F*cking Mind." To differentiate it from Seabiscuit, the filmmakers could have taken a few liberties with the material. My suggestion: the true story of a horse who ate too much, and lounged around like he was in the Caribbean. Here's an artist's interpretation of what that may look like. Check out the trailer after the jump. Secretariat charges into theaters October 8, 2010.
Director: Randall WallaceCast: Diane Lane, John Malkovich, James Cromwell, Dylan WalshSynopsis: The life story of Penny Chenery, owner of the racehorse Secretariat, who won the Triple Crown in 1973.Release Date: October 8, 2010
The trailer for The Stepfather remake (or is it reimagining?) hit the web today, and it sets a tone not unlike other horror/slasher movie trailers. Expect quick cuts and flash frames to raise the tension, and Amber Heard in a bikini to raise, well… The film basically follows the premise of the original except this time the kid is a boy, he has younger siblings, and his soon-to-be stepfather is the guy from Nip/Tick and not the guy from Lost. Oh, and Amber Heard is in a bikini.Today's Top Links: Melissa Rogers At Work And Play (GorillaMask) 8 More Accurate College Mascots (HolyTaco) Adam Sandler In More Fake Movies (FilmDrunk) The 10 Dumbest Moments In Wheel Of Fortune History (Manofest) The Most Badass Toothbrush Travel Case Ever (Walyou) A Bride Of Frankenstein Remake Might Happen (Pajiba) 5 Celebrity Careers Launched By Ethnic Makeovers (Cracked) Guide To The Girls Of Summer '09 (CoedMagazine) Diego Sanchez Talks About Getting A Title Shot (CagePotato) Pixely Awesome Videogame Blankets (UnrealityMag) Obama And Other Dudes Awesome Enough To Kill Flies (Asylum) Tim Tebow Is A Fan Of The Olive Garden (BustedCoverage) 5 Funny Movie Characters Who Are Unintelligible (Uncoached) 8 Inventions From The Year 2019 (RegretfulMorning) Father's Day Gifts: Food And Drink Edition (BachelorGuy) 2009-2010 College Football Bowl Schedule (MoondogSports) Nascar-Themed Summer Blockbusters (AllLeftTurns)
