Mel Gibson's All Up In Jodi Foster's 'The Beaver' Trailer

The film stars Mel Gibson as a depressed toy executive and family man who uses a beaver puppet to work through emotional pain. It also feels like a creepy apology card. Summit gingerly dropped the trailer for Jodi Foster's The Beaver last night. The film stars Mel Gibson as a depressed toy executive and family man who uses a beaver puppet to work through emotional pain. Some people think this movie might not succeed due to Mel Gibson's recent and more recent despicable actions. I think it might not succeed because it's about a man who wears a beaver puppet on his hand. Not exactly trending these days. The trailer also feels like it's edited as an apology card from Gibson. A poor guy who's drowning in life tries to redeem himself and mend fences. Perhaps we'll be so moved by the soiled beaver on his hand we'll forget that in real life Mel Gibson has pretty much offended everything under the sun. That beaver is powerful stuff. Powerful stuff indeed.

Hugh Jackman Goes Full Mel Gibson In 'Prisoners' Trailer

Whenever a child is kidnapped in films, there is a lot of stern yelling. What? Can't a creepy weirdo play with young girls on his RV moments before they go missing for days on end without everyone suddenly pointing fingers? Apparently not, according to this trailer for Prisoners. Hugh Jackman and Terence Howard star as dads who just want Paul Dano to give them back their daughters while Jake Gyllenhaal is the floppy-haired, neck tattooed detective determined to find them, no matter the number of heads he has to bash into tables. Dano seems to give a particularly chilling performance as the greasy nerd who doesn't say much of anything. Classic Dano.


Woman Treats Her Beaver Right

From Videogum. This is an amazing video (after the jump). I think that Axe Body Spray should make one where they show a French Canadian Trapper using their product in various woodsman snares trying to capture a beaver. From Videogum.

Watch Javier Bardem Emote in 'Biutiful' Trailer

Give me Oscar. Can you smell it? That's the Oscar race getting closer, my friends. Roadside Attractions has dropped the trailer for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Biutiful. Javier Bardem already won Best Actor in Cannes for his portrayal of a father facing death, and that means the little, bald, gold man is next. Biutiful falls in line with Inarritu's previous mellow harshing material (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel), but if you're looking to feel glum, this film could be a quick ticket to Emotional Breakdown Town. Biutiful hits theaters Decemeber 29, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump... Biutiful Trailer - Watch more Movie Trailers


Ben Foster Bites Jason Statham's Style in 'The Mechanic' Trailer

The trailer for The Mechanic has all the hallmarks of a Jason Statham film -- cars, guns, explosions, unintelligle growl-mumbles, and the Cowgirl Position. A remake of the 1972 original, Statham steps into the Charles Bronson role. Except in this version, women aren't disgusted by the thought of touching the lead actor. Ben Foster co-stars as his ward in the killing people for money game, which appears to be an industry where you don't want the other guy knowing your trade secrets. Much like blogging (nothing like blogging). The film opens December 15th and also stars Donald Sutherland and Christa Campbell, who you more than likely know from the very important film, Cool Dog.  Watch the trailer after the jump....


Big Bird And Veteran Puppeteer Caroll Spinney Kill It In This 'Birdman' Parody

It probably makes more sense than the film it's parodying. Sesame Street isn't known for being on the bleeding edge of pop culture, which is why it's sorta surprising that the show sanctioned a parody called Big Birdman (Or: The Unexpected Virtue of Orange Pants). The clip features the titular giant yellow bird, as well as someone you may not know, but probably appreciate. It's sending up recent Best Picture winner Birdman, in case you're really bad with references and names. Caroll Spinney has been playing Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch for the show's entire run. He's got a pretty awesome role in this thing. The clip gets the tone completely correct, and it's Big Bird. What else do you want? (A.V. Club)


'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World' Trailer Harnesses Gamer Power

If only real life offered 1-Ups... The Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Facebook page hit 100,000 fans at 1:30am this morning, and that means the full length trailer has been unleashed. A big thank you goes out to all the drunks who stumbled back to their homes last night and stamped barbeque sauce on their keyboards as they eagerly "Liked" the fan page. Scott Pilgrim, based off the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley, follows a guy (Michael Cera) as he tries to defeat a girl's (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to make shiz official with her. His world becomes a big video game full of 1-Ups, vibrant color trails, and onamonapias. According to the film's tag, the studio wants you to believe  that it's on like Donkey Kong, but unless one of the ex-boyfriends is a giant ape in a dress tie, I'm going to have to insist that it's on like something else. Check out the trailer after the jump. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World BAMS! into theaters August 13, 2010.


Kenny Powers > Poor, Underprivileged Children

Dr. Cock N Balls is back in the game. Eastbound & Down returns for its third and final season Sunday, February 19th on HBO. Last time we saw Kenny Powers, he was south of the border, searching for his estranged dad and another shot at the majors. Those efforts put him back on the map, so to speak, and now he's in Myrtle Beach pitching for the Mermen, which means Kenny Powers goes to Spring Break. Originally, the series was only planned to last one season, but I think we all can agree that Kenny at Spring Break is a story that needed to be told. This season, Danny McBride is joined by Jason Sudeikis, Steve Little, Katy Mixon and Ike Barinholtz.


New 'Melancholia' Trailer Will Fill You With, Uh...?

What's another word for 'depression'? [post-video postid="206102"]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!
