Don't Tread On The Full 'War Horse' Trailer

Jeez. Dude really loves that horse. Though we aren't shown any imagery of horses firing weapons at one another, the full-length War Horse trailer looks pretty good. The Steven Spielberg film tells the story of Joey, a horse purchased for World War I combat, and his owner as he joins the war in an effort to reclaim his horse. What the hell? I don't understand. Did the animal eat something that was important to him? Why is he so attached to that thing? Somebody's got to teach that kid how commerce works. We can find out for sure when the film is released on Christmas Day.

War Is Hell For Horses In Spielberg's 'War Horse'

War Horse is at war. [post-album postid="201209" item="1"]Finally, an actor who runs around more than Tom Cruise. The teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's War Horse is finally here and it's as lush and sweeping as you'd expect. Here we see the titular horse run through epic WWI battles and the lives he encounters throughout the warfare. But the story isn't just a horse running through explosions though that would be pretty metal. It's actually about a young man named Albert and his horse, Joey, who in taken from him and sold to the cavalry. Albert is too young to enlist but still heads to France to save his four-legged friend. Just like when the dealership took back my Kia. I almost went the next town over to retrieve it. Okay, maybe not just like.


'Warhorsey' Is Just Like 'War Horse', But With Poop

Now THIS could sweep the BAFTAs. If I've had one criticism with filmmaking of late, it's that you never see characters go the bathroom. Seriously, you think Ethan Hunt can dangle off the world's tallest building without essing his underpees? I doubt it, considering the amount of running around he does. I mean, he's well-trained, but not that well-trained. The guys at FilmDunk/Frotcast also take issue with that decided lack of realism, and so a fan has heard their call and cut together this trailer for Warhorsey, the horse that poops. It's a more realistic approach to War Horse and solves the issue of what happens after Joey eats all that hay. Too bad that the original release didn't handle this subject matter. Would have swept the BAFTAs, I bet. Now this is more like it. Now get to work on a Ghost Protocol recut with a turd streaking down glass. (FilmDrunk)


'The Lone Ranger' Introduces Us To Its Wacky Horse In New Trailer

All the best movies have wacky horses. The team that brought us Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is back with another look at The Lone Ranger. Here we get an idea of the origin of Armie Hammer's Ranger -- a man thought to be dead dons a mask and teams up with a Native American for justice. Attempts at summer blockbuster action Westerns have failed in recent memory, but perhaps this one will break the streak. It has Johnny Depp after all (assuming no one remembers The Tourist).


NBC Did Something Right Thanks To The Arcade Fire

They did it on purpose too! Well, this was unexpected. NBC agreed to air something awesome. Of course, they waited until 1am Saturday night/Sunday morning but still... something awesome was broadcast to the nation on the National Broadcast Company. After appearing as the musical guest on the season premiere of SNL, Arcade Fire made things weird by launching into their own after-show concert special. Directed by Roman Coppola, the style of the special was made to ape the crap that followed SNL in the early 1980's. Look out for cameos from James Franco, Rainn Wilson, Bono, Ben Stiller, Michael Cera, Bill Hader, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Schwartzman, Eric Wareheim, and Aziz Ansari. More of this please, NBC. Please fill your late night programming with gonzo stuff.


The World Is Fire And Blood In 'Mad Max: Fury Road' International Trailer

This film will be rated R "for intense scenes of things that have to happen in 'Mad Max' movies." As if there would be any other way to make a Mad Max movie, Mad Max: Fury Road has just officially received an R-rating for "intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images." You say "disturbing," I say "incredibly awesome." Have a look at the international trailer. It can only be described as mayhem. Finally a movie that pits post-apocalypse warriors against insane cannibals and has them fight to the death on speeding, blade-adorned vehicles inside of a tornado from the director of Happy Feet.

Full Length 'True Grit' Trailer Is Intense, Features Bear On A Horse

What is this? 'The Wicker Man'? Hot on the heels of last week's True Grit teaser comes the full length jump off. This time around we see a lot more of Bridges's Cogburn, Damon's La Beouf, and Brolin's cowardly Chaney. We also see someone dressed as a bear on horseback. What kind of crazy scheme are they trying to pull? LA BEOUF: Alright. When Chaney sees me approach dressed as a bear, he'll think I'm just after his pic-a-nic basket. That's when we take him in. Female bear with a bow in her hair mounts La Beouf. Cue "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." COCKBURN: Ah, raped by a bear. Seen it hundreds o' times. Tis a shame. Note that I haven't read the script, so the events detailed above may not actually happen. Check out the full length trailer after the jump...


Check Out The Star-Studded Trailer For 'Digging For Fire'

This has to be the most high-profile cast ever assembled for a film named after a Pixies song. Do you like Jake Johnson? How about Orlando Bloom, Anna Kendrick, Sam Elliott, Ron Livingston, Chris Messina, Jenny Slate, Melanie Lynskey, Sam Rockwell, Mike Birbiglia, and Brie Larson? Huh? You like THOSE actors? Cause if you do, then the Digging for Fire trailer might interest you. Joe Swanberg is directing a film about a crisis in the life of two 30-something LA residents. I don't want to give away any plot points, but if that cast doesn't motivate you to watch the trailer, then you're probably not going to watch it no matter what. (Vulture)


'Star Wars: Episode VII' Trailer Also Gets The 'Spaceballs' Treatment

The Schwartz Awakens? Word on the geek street is that the new Star Wars: Episode VII trailer is set to become the most-viewed movie trailer of all time. No surprise there; it's Star Wars. It should also be no surprise that the trailer is being recut, effed-with, and parodied in just about every way imaginable. And this time, it's Filmgeekery doing Spaceballs, the Mel Brooks parody of the original three Star Wars installments. The trailer is really just Spaceballs set to the sounds and dialogue of the new film. And if you don't like this, you're a joyless monster.
