This day holds more in store than just The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster. We also get a look at a couple of other one-sheets. One is based on a beloved piece of children’s literature and directed by a master of cinema. The other is based on a beloved film about people’s heads turning into scorpion creatures and their chest cavities becoming gnashing mouths. I can’t decide which I’d like to see more.

The Thing serves as a prequel to John Carpenter‘s classic and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton as researchers in the Artic doing battle with an otherwordly being attempting to take over the planet. Just like Justin Bieber.

Hugo from Martin Scorsese adapts Brian Selznick’s The Invention Of Hugo Cabret and tells the story of a mysterious boy living in a Paris train station. A trailer is expected this week so if you love trains, you’re going into the weekend happy.

 

(Coming Soon)

Stills from yet-to-be-completed films never really tell you the whole story, but instead sort of tease the intended audience to get them excited for the movies they’ll be paying to see in several months. Well, we’ve got a double shot of that this morning with the newest from both Pixar and Martin Scorsese.

First up is Pixar’s Brave, a movie befallen by some turmoil recently, including the exit of its lead voice actress, Reese Witherspoon (she’ll be replaced by Kelly McDonald), and the firing of the company’s first female director, Brenda Chapman. Nevertheless, it looks lush, gorgeous, and unlike any Pixar film we’ve ever seen.

(EW)

Next up is an intriguing still from Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo Cabret, a kids film produced by Johnny Depp, who as this photo reveals, is also acting in the film as well. Depp will play Monsieur Rouleou, a painter who helps the young protagonist on his journey. Depp shot seven scenes for the film, and can be seen in the image below putting his famous goatee to use Hugo Cabret is in theaters this holiday season.

‘GI Joe 2′ Has A Release Date, Unfortunately http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gi-joe-2-has-a-release-date-unfortunately/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gi-joe-2-has-a-release-date-unfortunately/#comments Sat, 05 Mar 2011 03:53:56 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=102422 'GI Joe 2' and 'Hugo Cabret' get release dates from Paramount. The first one they can keep for themselves, thank you.

Mark your calendars, folks. On August 10, 2012, your childhood gets its ass kicked again by the live action Joes. Yes, Paramount is letting GI Joe 2 invade theaters in mid-August, a dumping ground for many of the summer’s most quality-challenged big budget movies. With Jon M. Chu (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Step Up 2: The Streets) directing, it’s sure to a high-flying, high-kicking waste of your $38.

Paramount also officially locked-in the release date of Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming 3D blockbuster Hugo Cabret as November 23, 2011. Scorsese in 3D sounds intriguing, as does the cast, which includes Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law and Christopher Lee. Hopefully, Cobra doesn’t do anything to muck up Hugo Cabret‘s Thanksgiving release. (Hollywood Reporter)

Martin Scorsese’s Hugo Cabret is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, being that it’s Martin Scorsese using 3D for the first time. OK, so I’ll pay for 3D glasses one more time, but if this disappoints me, I’m done with 3D. For real this time.

Anyway, it looks like I’ll be strapping those goddamn goggles to my head even sooner than I thought, thanks to a deal with Paramount. Now the movie is going to be shown on Thanksgiving, so you can drag all of your relatives to a midnight showing.

Hugo Cabret has Asa Butterfield as the Hugo, an orphaned boy living in a Parisian train station. It also stars Chloe Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Ray Winstone, all fine people to share a Thanksgiving meal with.

11 Must See Films for 2011 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/11-must-see-films-for-2011/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/11-must-see-films-for-2011/#comments Thu, 06 Jan 2011 16:45:51 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=14403 While I’m sure this list will be altered as the year progresses and new information comes to light, I’ve made a preliminary rundown of 11 films I refuse to miss in 2011, all others be damned.

The post 11 Must See Films for 2011 appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

I’m not even close to getting through all the films 2010 had to offer, but that won’t stop 2011 from vomiting dozens of new options into the toilet that is my life. With so many films to choose from, I’m going to have to make some difficult decisions over the next 12 months. That’s why I’m planning ahead. While I’m sure this list will be altered as the year progresses and new information comes to light, I’ve made a preliminary rundown of 11 films I refuse to miss in 2011, all others be damned. Sure, a lot of great movies probably didn’t make the cut, but this is the real world. Not everything works out the way you want. Deal with it.

The Hangover 2

Before The Hangover, I wasn’t a huge fan of Todd Phillips. It’s not that his films weren’t funny, I just didn’t see what all the fuss was about. But I finally saw the light, and I’m hoping to see it again with The Hangover 2.

The Good: Setting the film in Bangkok opens the door for all sorts of demented behavior, since the city makes Vegas look like Branson, MO.

The Bad: Unfortunately, expectations are extremely high going in, which never helps. Unless Philips pulls off The Godfather II of comedy, many people will be let down.

The Ugly: From Mel Gibson to Bill Clinton, this film has been subject to a ton of cameo rumors, which really defeats the purpose of a surprise cameo. Hopefully the film still has some tricks up its sleeve without coming across as too gimmicky.

Sucker Punch

Sucker punch, the latest outing from director Zack Snyder, tells the story of a young girl in the 1950s who is about to be lobotomized. The girl retreats to a fantasy world as she and her friends attempt to make their escape from the asylum.

The Good: Hot girls and violence; This film has lots of both.

The Bad: Way too much slow motion. We get it! It looks cool. Speed it up! I’ve got to piss!

The Ugly: If there’s nothing more than implied lesbianism, things are going to get really ugly in my theater.

Hobo with a Shotgun

Hobo with a Shotgun has been a long time coming. Based on the winner of a Grindhouse-style trailer contest at South by Southwest, the film stars Rutger Hauer as the titular shotgun wielding hobo.

The Good: The fact that this film is even being made restores some of my faith in humanity.

The Bad: Thus far, trailers I’ve seen haven’t been that impressive, which makes me think it will have a hard time living up to the nearly perfect source material. That being said, even if it sucks, I’ll probably see it at least twice.

The Ugly: Decapitations caused by chains tied to moving vehicles tend to get ugly.

Horrible Bosses

This film chronicles the adventures of three friends who decided to kill their…wait for it…horrible bosses. If all goes well, we might be dealing with a modern-day Office Space. Hey, it already has Jennifer Aniston.

The Good: The film has a funny premise and an all-star cast (Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jason Batemen). But despite the big names, I’m most excited about seeing Charlie Day from “Always Sunny” on the big screen…in a film besides Going the Distance.

The Bad: Jamie Foxx’s character is named “Motherfuker Jones.” That’s not bad, so much as it is badass!

The Ugly: If the film is successful, I suspect we’ll see a rash of boss killings, beginning right here at Screenjunkies.com.

Super 8

Written and directed by J. J. Abrams, and produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8 tells the story of an alien that escapes from a train while being transported by the government. At least that’s what most people are speculating. The filmmakers have been very tight-lipped.

The Good: Abrams, Spielberg, aliens: need we say more?

The Bad: Abrams, Spielberg, aliens: again with the extraterrestrials?

The Ugly: If this alien enjoys Reese’s Pieces, I’m walking out.

The Beaver

Directed by Jodi Foster and starring Mel Gibson, The Beaver is about a business man who loses his mind and begins using a beaver puppet to communicate with the people around him.

The Good: If the film does well, it will be a hell of a comeback story for old Mel. Plus, everybody loves beaver. Am I right?

The Bad: Gibson’s personal problems could derail the film and take away from his actual performance. In case you hadn’t heard, Mel’s been having some P.R. problems as of late.

The Ugly: If you pay to see it, you’re giving money to a racist, anti-Semite who (allegedly) beats his girlfriend. I’m sure it wouldn’t be the first time, but still.

The Muppet Movie

The Muppets are back, and they’re in a movie. Need I say more? Awesome!

The Good: Jason Segel is in charge of the script. His stuff can be a little melodramatic for my tastes, but it should be a good fit for a Muppet movie.

The Bad: You’ll have to watch a lot of hipsters enjoying the Muppets “ironically.”

The Ugly: Lady Gaga will probably have a cameo. F*ck that!

Rampart

Based on the L.A.P.D. Rampart scandal of the early 1990’s, Rampart tells the fictional story of a police officer, played by Woody Harrelson, who is caught in the crossfire. If it sounds a lot like an updated version of L.A. Confidential, it basically is. James Ellroy even worked on the script.

The Good: A great cast featuring Woody Harrelson, Steve Buscemi and Sigourney Weaver.

The Bad: You probably don’t want to see this movie at the ghetto theater, even if it is half-priced.

The Ugly:
What’s uglier than racial tensions and police corruption? Make your own Steve Buscemi joke. Sorry. I’m uglier than he is, so it’s OK.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Based on the Swedish book of the same name and directed by David Fincher, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a tale of murder, intrigue, and sexual assault.

The Good: David Fincher and serial killings, together at last.

The Bad:
Sexual assaults are a real drag. If you don’t agree with that statement, seek help immediately.

The Ugly: I’m going with sexual assault for this one too. I can’t stress that enough. Sexual assaults are bad. And that’s not just my court-mandated meds talking.

Hugo Cabret

Based on the book by Brian Selznick Hugo Cabret is about an Orphan who lives in the walls of a Paris train station. It’s not nearly as depressing as it sounds.

The Good: Martin Scorsese is set to direct a cast that includes Jude Law, Ray Winstone and Christopher Lee.

The Bad: The French are involved.

The Ugly: Have you ever smelled a Parisian train station? If so, the 3D images are sure to conjure up some disgusting nasal memories.

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

No, not the James Bond movie. I’m talking about the 3D film depicting the “true story” of Justin Bieber. Why is it on this list? Because these days, the only time I feel alive is when I’m engulfed in hatred. Besides, it’s a chance to ruin the film for those who actually want to see it. I recommend sneaking in a bag of your own feces and tossing it into the air half-way through the first song.

The Good: Nothing.

The Bad: Everything.

The Ugly: If you go to this movie, you will look like a pedophile. I recommend bringing a kid with you, unless you are an actual pedophile, in which case you should wait for the DVD.
