If anyone thought that politics made Arnold Schwarzenegger soft…yeah, maybe. But private live in Brentwood has brought the action-film icon back to his old self, if this trailer is to be believed.

And why wouldn’t you believe a red-band trailer?

The film comes from South Korean director Kim Ji-woon, who scared the bejesus out of us with I Saw the Devil, so those who are quick to dismiss this film as mindless action might want to take in a screening of that before being so quick to judge.

But before you go to your local video store (HA!), check out the trailer for The Last Stand.

Romantic comedies come in two basic flavors nowadays: Sweet, gentle, watch-with-your-parents types, and raunchy keep-the-kids-as-far-away-as-you-possibly-can-dear-sweet-Jesus-in-heaven types. Interestingly, this red band trailer for The Babymakers seems to be pitched somewhere in between. Yeah, there are lots of references to sperm and related fluids, but the overall raunch factor is relatively tame.

But, it’s about a guy breaking into a sperm bank to steal back his own sperm, so I still recommend watching it. Also, the movie stars Olivia Munn, Paul Schneider, Aisha Tyler, and a regrettably-trailer-absent Wood Harris of The Wire, so check it out if you are into one or more of those people.

Moviegoers could be forgiven for assuming that anything with the word “Dredd” in the title is a piece of shit, thanks to notably shitty piece of shit Judge Dredd starring Sylvester Stallone. But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that the comics featuring the Judge Dredd character are pretty well-respected, and now this trailer comes out and actually looks really cool and I don’t know what to think anymore.

As if that weren’t enough, this trailer also has Olivia Thirlby, famous for playing sweet smartasses in stuff like Juno and The Wackness doing what can be called for lack of a better term “kicking ass.” The lesson is clear: Don’t watch the trailer for Dredd if you’re not prepared to have all of your preconceived notions rocked to their cores. Or if you don’t like guns.

Look, I don’t want to waste anyone’s time here so I’ll just make this quick. There’s a new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 has been released, and it’s full of all the cheap special effects, clumsy expository dialogue, disturbing sexual politics, and vampire-on-werewolf violence we’ve all come to expect from the franchise, either firsthand or through that annoying cultural osmosis that happens if you have a Twitter account. Starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and a bunch of other people who have no humorous qualities inherent to their appearances, acting styles, or behaviors whatsoever.

So just watch it, alright? I watched it, your 13-year-old niece watched it (49 times and counting), your weird coworkers are watching it right now. You don’t want to be left out, do you? There is a cultural conversation about vampires and werewolves and possibly-vampric-babies happening and you’re going to miss all of it if you DON’T WATCH THIS TRAILER RIGHT NOW!!!

Most of the trailers and other promotional materials for Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming Batmovie The Dark Knight Rises have been a little on the grim side. Lots of ominous darkness and scary business. And while the newest trailer for the movie certainly has a lot of that, it also has a little bit of fun, too. This is Batman, after all, he is allowed to tell a joke or two.

Honest Trailers is back, and this time, it’s personal. Well, not really.

Michael Bay’s Transformers is one of the most lucrative film franchises of all time. It’s also one of the most idiotic. Don’t get me wrong; hot chicks and robots are a great combo. But I’m not sure it’s worth sitting through two-and-a-half hours of product placement and Shia LaBeouf.

Don’t take my word for it. Let this Honest Trailer speak for itself.

So that’s how the super friends all met! We can thank a bald black dude in an eyepatch.

In case you were wondering exactly how the characters from The Avengers were all assembled so as not to look like a superhero version of the Miami Heat, here’s your answer. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembled a team of elite superheroes (Is there any other kind?) to tackle the type of costumed ne’er-do-wells that could only populate a Marvel universe.

While I’m sure the origin story of The Avengers is somewhat carefully crafted, it’s pretty hard to get past seeing Captain America next to Thor next to Iron Man. It looks like a parody of itself, but that probably won’t stop it from being fun.

The new Bourne Legacy trailer has hit the Internet, and while it looks to be in keeping with the previous Bourne installments (equal parts shoot-’em-up and political/spy thriller), what we don’t know is why Jeremy Renner‘s character is in The Bourne Legacy?

“He’s Treadstone without the inconsistency.”

“He’s an Outcome agent.”

“We’ve never seen evaluations like this.”

Thanks, trailer, but that doesn’t really answer my question.

This preview of the fourth Bourne film, the first without star Matt Damon, shows us Jeremy Renner getting indoctrinated as an agent, under the tutelage and supervision of the added Edward Norton, but it’s unclear from this clip exactly what the connection is between him, Treadstone, and Jason Bourne.

Oh well. I’m sure it will be explained, as Bourne has proven pretty methodical with its plodding.

On the other hand, he jumps on a tree in the snow, and that’s pretty darn neat.

Joseph Farrell, a Hollywood market research professional, died yesterday at the age of 76. Few, if any, movie fans knew his name, but he did more to shape the modern theatergoing experience than any other member of the film industry.

Farrell created the movie trailer.

In a world where movies started on time, and future projects were woefully under-marketed…One man would stop at nothing to advertise upcoming films before the feature presentation. 

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like trailers. Try to find another invention that NO ONE dislikes. This guy managed to create a form of advertising that people pay to watch and hate to miss.

Farrell worked for, then ran, the National Research Group, Hollywood’s biggest marketing consultancy. Not only did he come up with the notion of showing movie teasers before features, but he also introduced such industry staples as tracking and test screenings. Did you ever wonder how you can read about a film’s weekend box office take on a Saturday afternoon? That’s tracking, and Joseph Farrell innovated and utilized it before anyone else did.

Recently, Farrell got into production with a first-look deal at Disney, but his real legacy will be what he did on the marketing side of things. He helped shape the practices of the entire entertainment industry. And that’s pretty cool.

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job are making a movie, a fact to which readers of this site are probably hip. What they (you) may not know is that Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie features some sick stuff that these two let out when the lax Standards and Practices guys at Adult Swim aren’t around to crack the whip.

What kind of sick stuff? Oh nothing really, just disgusting things like JEFF GOLDBLUM and ROBERT LOGGIA! Forehead dildos, and JOHN C. REILLY! Can your stomach take it?

I have to cram this piece with as many jokes and one-offs as possible in the hopes of weaseling out of establishing a narrative based on this trailer, a feat that is downright daunting. If someone would like to take a stab at explaining this film in the comments, that would be pretty cool.

In the meantime, let the weirdness and profanity wash over you in a soothing wave, with the knowledge that, soon, the weekend will be here.

When I first heard of a the upcoming film Project X, I thought to myself, “I will be goddamned if I’m going to acknowledge the existence of a movie called Project X that isn’t about monkeys and Matthew Broderick.”

But then I saw this trailer and changed my mind. From producer Todd Phillips and rookie director Nima Nourizade comes this film about high school kid who throws a house party that gets a little out of hand. But not in a Dazed and Confused way, or even a Risky Business way or even a Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead way. Ahh, the high price of high school popularity.

Nope. This kid somehow managed to sneak Electric Daisy Carnival into his parents house. It’s being discussed as a comedy, but I really don’t get any humor coming through this trailer. Rather, it feels like a slow-motion trainwreck.

The fact that the thing opens up with a video message to his parents reads rather ominously.

“Mom, Dad – if you’re watching this video, then that means I died of either alochol poisoning or spinal injuries sustained while motorboating some skank. Tell Patches that I love him.”

Project X doesn’t hit theaters till March 2, so we’ll have plenty of time to see what the deal is, but right now, just watch the film and be glad you’re not this kid.

Halloween is the season for creepy stop-motion animated children’s movies. And so today we have a new trailer for ParaNorman, from the studio that brought you Coraline. I’m not much of an animation buff but this looks pretty cool, and it also has one of the best titles I’ve seen in a while (I’m a sucker for puns). The trailer doesn’t have much information in the way of plot, but it does have a lot of creepy images and it looks cool. And check out this voice cast: Casey Affleck, John Goodman, Jeff Garlin, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Elaine Stritch. I know most of those names!

ParaNorman is scheduled for an August, 2012 release, so expect lots more information to come between now and then. Below you can also see a (kind of bland) poster for the movie. (The Playlist)

Going into production of the newest Muppet film, titled simply, The Muppets, star and writer Jason Segel promised to handle the institution with the respect it deserves in another full-length trailer.

The biggest news from this trailer would be that we get a look at Walter, the newest member of the gang. Where do new Muppets come from? Bulgaria? Burning Man? It’s not addressed in the trailer, but I’m guessing we’ll find out.

However, when the parade of guest stars was announced, it was easy to be a little skeptical of Disney’s intentions. Was this film going to actually have something to say, or would it simply be a crass remake appealing to the lowest common denominator?

From the trailer, it appears to be the former, more or less. Sure, the involvement of NPH and Jack Black doesn’t exactly scream “integrity,” but there premise seems cute and likable, much like the fuzzy character themselves. Sure, there are some chickens doing a musical rendition of C. Lo’s “Fuck Forget You,” but beyond that, it maintains a timeless quality that its predecessors had.

Also worth noting is a late appearance by Chris Cooper, who we at Screen Junkies desperately hope is reprising his role as the closeted disciplinarian from American Beauty.

It's The End Of The World As We Know It In 'Melancholia' Trailer

Lars Von Trier is famous for making movies that are impeccably shot, memorably acted, and depressing as hell. And so it appears to be in this new trailer for Melancholia, his new disaster/depression movie starring Kirsten Dunst, Kiefer Sutherland, Stellan Skarsgård, Udo Kier, and others.

Even more than the last trailer, this one shows the movie’s gorgeous cinematography and allows you to see a little more of the celestial action in the movie, about a second planet (named “Melancholia“) crashing into our planet (named “Earth“). It also begins with the inspiring words “we are alone, there is only life on Earth.” A happy thought to kick off your long weekend with!

The trailer for A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas is here, and words fail me. Claymation, NPH, beer pong, spiked drinks, Santa assassinations, a Radio City Music hall spectacular, and, of course, penises getting stuck to frozen poles in the vein of A Christmas Story.

There’s really not much to discuss here, as the trailer consists of a full-fledged visual assault (which will undoubtedly be exacerbated by the fact that it’s in 3D).

If you’re on the fence, I guess the only thing that I can share with you to help you make up your mind is when Neil Patrick Harris tells a girl who thought he was gay,”I am gay. Gay for that pussy.”

I know what my pickup line is for the rest of the fiscal year.

The 'Contagion' Trailer Will Kills Us All!

Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming viral thriller Contagion is premiering in just a few weeks, provided humanity can survive that long. And you know what that means: TV spots! Here are two, fresh off the Petri dish. Above is the first one, which focuses more on Matt Damon and wife Gwyneth Paltrow before branching off into worldwide panic, while the other one (below) is pretty much all worldwide panic. You can also catch glimpses of Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, and Kate Winslet. Can’t wait to watch them all slowly die of an incurable virus!

I think these both look great, and I’m excited to see Soderbergh take on such an established genre. And it’ll almost definitely be better than Outbreak.

If you want to see some hopelessly pragmatic academics upset a bunch of baseball traditionalists by ripping out the heart, soul, and tradition of the game, then Moneyball is the film for you. Starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman (who actually looks like a retired baseball player), Moneyball is the story of the Oakland A’s GM Billy Beane who took a scientific approach to assembling a winning team on a budget. Sort of like Major League if the team had been assembled by MIT grads instead of scruffy Lou Brown.

The trailer does an abrupt heel-turn, going from slapstick to Friday Night Lights-style inspiration. So when you watch this trailer, start by giggling incessantly, but by the end, you’ll have a thousand-yard stare and a solitary tear running down your face. At least I did.

‘Killer Elite’s Second Trailer Confirms That These Are The Most Elite Of Killers http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/killer-elites-second-trailer-confirms-that-these-are-the-most-elite-of-killers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/killer-elites-second-trailer-confirms-that-these-are-the-most-elite-of-killers/#comments Wed, 03 Aug 2011 19:55:24 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=223376 If you think that these gentlemen are suitable to eff with, this trailer will dispel that notion VERY quickly.

In case you couldn’t figure out what the first Killer Elite trailer was about (kicking anyone and everyone, sometimes while strapped to chairs), then this second trailer should give you a better sense.

In fact, this one dials up the brainless action even more, with phrases like “The hunter become the hunted” and “May the best man live.” Awesome. And of course, the latter half of the trailer is still set to Scorpions’ “Rock You Like a Hurricane,” so don’t go strutting around thinking this film will rock you like anything less than a hurricane, cause that’s just not gonna happen.

Oh yeah, the plot: It would appear (after like five viewings) that Jason Statham is tight with Robert De Niro, who will be killed by Clive Owen unless Jason Statham does something that involves shooting lots of guns and kicking people. The rest is incidental. Oh, there’s also a girl, but it’s not clear how she comes into play. Please note the girl is hot, which is good, because that really could have gone either way.

Rob McElhenney is the Robert De Niro of TV comedy – gaining 50 pounds just because it would be “funny” on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Now, you can see a sneak preview of Fat Mac in a trailer for the show’s 7th season. It is funny, I guess, but there’s also something … disturbing(?) about it. Anyway, it’s pretty short and Mac-centric, but it should still scratch fans of the show and curious rubberneckers right where they itch. And as always with It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, a valuable lesson is imparted: “There’s more to life than piles of food.” Thanks, guys. The new season premieres on FX on September 15.

Apparently the first Happy Feet left a lot of unanswered questions about dancing penguins, so the auteurs behind it are coming back to us with Happy Feet 2.

Hollywood’s A-list seemed to also agree that the story was from over with the first one, so Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Elijah Wood, Brad Pitt, and Hank Azaria are all lending their voices to this victory lap. I’m not sure how to tell all the penguins apart, though. Maybe they should wear little hats or something?

Because it’s a film about dancing penguins, those black-and-white birds are going to need a soundtrack full of “hot jams” both old and new, and fortunately, they get what they need in the form of penguinified versions of “Mama Said Knock You Out” and “SexyBack,” so let the receptionist at your office know that this will be a delightful film to take her niece to.

Justin Timberlake, not content to be the most-liked pop star/actor working today, is apparently branching out into the world of action stardom. The vehicle for this endeavor is called In Time – directed by respected science-fictioneer Andrew Niccol, and it as hooky scifi premises go, it’s pretty golden. It’s the future, when science has cured aging, and everyone stops growing older at 25. Instead of gradually getting older and dying, the populace is given one more year to live. But the people can replenish their time remaining on Earth, since in this future society, time is used as currency, like money today. Pretty cool, right?

The trailer poses a lot of thought-provoking questions like “is it fair for some people to have lots of money while other people starve in the streets,” along with some ass-kicking and gunplay. Oh, and Pete Campbell from Mad Men is in it. Sold!

See A Romantic New Clip From 'Drive'

Of all the stuff getting promoted at Comic-Con, the thing I’m personally most excited about is Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Drive. Starring a cool Ryan Gosling, a beautiful Carey Mulligan, an evil Albert Brooks, and more adjective-matched stars, it looks to be an arthouse action movie to give Tarantino a run for his money.

This trailer, fortunately, has done nothing to make my level of anticipation decrease. There are some cool automotive stunts, and glimpses at the aforementioned stars, along with Christina Hendricks, Bryan Cranston, and Ron Perlman. I can’t wait to drive (my Segway) to my local theater to watch Drive!

A whole mess on funny people are gettin’ together, and they’re all gonna bang each other in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy. Why they’re having the orgy isn’t important. They’re doing it to save a rec center or for the Red Cross, or something. What’s important is that they’re doing it. And if you’re at all familiar with contemporary comedy, you’re going to notice at least a handful of the cast.

The film boasts Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte, Lucy Punch, Leslie Bibb, Lindsay Sloane, Tyler Labine, Lake Bell and Nick Kroll as its principals. And while I can’t say I’m eager to see all of them naked, it’s a pretty crack squad of comedic actors, so let’s bust out the KY and just ask questions later.

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy opens September 2nd.

Universal has dropped the trailer for the remake of The Thing. Why they would remake a classic horror film such as John Carpenter‘s The Thing (and call it a prequel), I have no idea. There is no way it could improve upon the original, which means they’re just setting themselves up for failure. The trailer doesn’t look awful by any means, it just looks meh. Mary Elizabeth Winstead leads a cast that includes Joel Edgerton and Eric Christian Olsen. Or at least that’s who they say they are. Who knows with this THING out there.

Side note: why must all horror trailers end with a character holding his or her breath, hoping that a creature/killer doesn’t strike from around the corner, and then a creature/killer strikes from around the corner?

“Don’t forget that there’s a TV show called The Walking Dead, it’s on AMC, and it’s about a deputy that kills zombies.”

That’s what you get from this 40-second clip. If you think you’re going to get an airdate, you’re wrong. Dead wrong. Sorry, that was overly dramatic, but all you get from this is a “Coming Soon.” Argh.

While I wouldn’t read into the stylistic devices used in this trailer too much, it’s a pretty cool-looking bullet-time video that is a departure from the very matter-of-fact style.

Ok. I’ve wrung about as much as I can out of this clip. Watch it and get excited for the new season, coming…soon(ish).

You Can’t Escape The Trailer For ‘Final Destination 5′

What can be said about Final Destination 5 that hasn’t been said about 1, 2, 3, or 4? Hmm. It’s a falling bridge this time. Which is notable in that the falling bridge scene looks pretty insane. Impressive even by summer blockbuster standards, it’s a downright overachievement for the Destination series.

Beyond that, it appears to be more of the same: kids on the run from death which stalks them in creative and gruesome ways. What’s not to like? I don’t want to spoil anything, but if you were the type of person that enjoys eyes being melted by lasers, you might want to stick around till the end of the trailer. Maybe.

‘Apollo 18′ Trailer Is Go For Launch

What could be worse than a nice trip to the moon with some friends when all of a sudden you discover that NASA hid the real purpose of your trip, which was, of course, the investigation of moon monsters?

Nothing. Nothing would be worse than the thing I just described.

Well, Apollo 18 posits exactly that, conveying the struggle on the American astronauts using that oh-so-popular found footage technique. There isn’t a lot to glean from the theatrical trailer, other than something else is out there, and it doesn’t seem to be making their trip more pleasurable.

Moon monsters: Can’t live with ‘em, can’t acknowledge their existence for fear of government reprisal.

New Teaser For ‘The Muppets’ Tries To Put One Over On You Again

If you’ve been keeping track of the trailers for The Muppets (and why wouldn’t you be?) starring Amy Adams and Jason Segel, you know they’ve been doing a lot of trailer parodies, designed to “trick” and “fool” viewers into thinking they were watching something else, only to “surprise” them by being about Muppets instead. Well, not anymore – this complete and official trailer for The Muppets does nothing to disguise its own Muppetness – I guess that’s just life in Obama‘s America.

Anyway, the trailer looks pretty funny, if you’re into Muppets and everything. What I happen to like the most is that they kept most if not all of the movie’s copious celebrity cameos out of the trailer, leaving them as a fun surprise for people who go to see the movie. Whoa, that takes me back.
