Joseph Gordon-Levitt Plays A Self-Serious Delivery Boy In 'Premium Rush' Trailer

New York's most attractive bike messengers take on New York's most corrupt cops. We've seen thrillers where characters are trapped in phone booths and on cellular phones. Now, it's come to this -- a thriller that happens almost entirely on a bicycle. Joseph Gordon-Levitt races through the streets of New York as a bike messenger trying to avoid crooked cops in Premium Rush. Written and directed by David Koepp, it looks like a fun take on action movies. Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon also stars along with Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung, and Aasif Mandvi. You might remember that Mandvi also played that pizza guy who fired Peter Parker from his delivery job in the beginning of Spider-Man 2. Good to see he's still working dispatch. Nobody knows the city like that guy.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Looks Like Billy Zane In New 'Looper' Trailer

Seriously, though. This guy's face? Rian Johnson's latest film is a high concept science fiction action film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an assassin who murders marks from the future. Until one day, the man (played by Bruce Willis) beamed back to him for disposal turns out to be his older self. This new trailer reveals more of the plot as well as the loggerheads that the present and future individuals find themselves at. It also reveals more of what the Bruce Willification of Gordon-Levitt's face looks like. It's. Just. Plain. Weird. I'd never thought that the offspring of those two would look like some kind of Billy Zane monster. Then again, this is a work of science fiction.


Chris Hemsworth Races Darkman In Trailer For Ron Howard's 'Rush'

Here we have the first look at Ron Howard's F1 racing drama, Rush. Based on the true story of the rivalry between English racer James Hunt and Austrian Niki Lauda, Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl star as the thrill junkies who somehow don't rob banks or moving trains. I thought this was a racing movie? Where's Michelle Rodriguez?? Instead, Howard opted to take a page out of history rather than the sketchbook of a 9-year old boy. In 1976, Lauda almost died after crashing in the second lap of the German Grand Prix, which the hotheaded Hunt would go on to win. Suffering a coma and bad burns, Lauda was back at it six weeks later determined to beat Hunt in several races. The movie will be in theaters this fall, but you can just go to Wikipedia now to see how it ends.


After 2 Million “Rush” Jokes, Segel And Rudd Are Allowed To Meet The Band

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel's characters from 'I Love You, Man' finally meet Rush in this viral video quasi-sequel, which will hopefully serve as the actual sequel. Watching I Love You, Man, which was released in Russia under the title Two Closeted Gay Men Talk About Rush, really makes you wonder: what would happen if these two characters who won't shut up about Rush finally meet Rush? Now Funny Or Die has given us the answer. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel's characters from the film meet their 80s band super-idols in this viral video quasi-sequel, which will hopefully serve as the actual sequel. In the video, Segel gets Rudd backstage passes to the local Rush concert and backstage shenanigans occur. A sandwich is eaten peculiarly, there's some mandatory 'awkward tension' and an admittedly cool-looking double guitar plays a key role. Also, some bittersweet news: "totes magotes" is spoken in the video, but not "Dude Von Dudenstein," "Sweet Sweet Hangin," and sadly, not one squiznot was popped for the entire 5:50 minutes. All you squiznot poppers out there will just have to keep writing that line into your I Love You, Man slash fiction. (/Film)


'RoboCop' Remake Trailer!!!

They might have not screwed this up. The first trailer for Sony/MGM's Robocop reboot is here and, forgive me for saying, looks really good. Yes I know that 1987 original is a classic and there's some things that should not be messed with, but in the studio's defense, Samuel L. Jackson wasn't around back then. I don't want to live in a world where Samuel L. Jackson isn't in a movie about a robot cop. Elite Squad's José Padilha directs this update that sees OmniCorp looking to bring their success with drone warfare onto American soil by putting a RoboCop in every city. But they didn't count on the man inside the machine exerting his own sense of right and wrong. Get mad if you need to but I like what I see. At least he doesn't transform into a motorcycle.


New 'RoboCop' Trailer: Droning On

Not as rated R as I'd like, but not all bad either. A new trailer for Jose Padilha's RoboCop remake is online offering a better look at the film's plot. This time, it's not just Detroit that sucks so bad that robotic sentries are needed. It's the entire world that needs to be policed by hyper-violent killing machines. However, liberals don't cotton to the idea of a robot with a gun on American soil so Michael Keaton comes up with the PR-friendly notion of shoving a corpse into a robot. Problem solved!


Ethan Hawke Is A Time-Traveling Cop In Trailer For A Movie That Is Not 'TimeCop'

It's about a time cop but not that time cop. This one might have zombies though. Ethan Hawke has teamed up his Daybreakers directors, Peter and Michael Spierig, for Predestination. Here he plays a time-traveling cop who doesn't do splits or fight bad guys in malls or on intricate roofs. Looks pretty good just the same though. In Predestination, the Spierig's adapt the most famous time travel story, Robert A. Heinlein's "All You Zombies." The film already screened at SXSW and the reviews were pretty mixed. Many complained that the plot makes no sense. But, please remember that it's a movie about time travel. Those are filled with paradoxes that defy logic. Others complained, "Hey, where are all the zombies?"
