'Perfect Sense' Is A Disaster Movie Without The Disaster

Those who have been waiting patiently for the most somber love story of all time may now relax. It's here, in the form of Perfect Sense. Those who have been waiting patiently for the most somber love story of all time may now relax. It's here, in the form of Perfect Sense, a drama featuring Ewan McGregor and Eva Green. The trailer shows a lot of sorrow, but with it, a few secrets between characters that seem to give the whole movie purpose. What are those secrets? The trailer doesn't hint at what they are, only that they exist. What could the secrets be? Please remember: I like my speculation rampant. As they fall in love, for one reason or another the world begins to lose its collective sensory perception, and the couple face crises of self, which should probably take a backseat to losing your actual senses, but to each their own. The downplayed disaster movie angle here shows some real restraint, with the director, David MacKenzie, seeming to opt to tell the story of the two lovers, rather than the world's reaction. A disaster movie sans disaster. In addition to the two leads, the supporting cast boasts longtime McGregor costar Ewen Bremner and Connie Nielsen. The film premieres next week at the Sundance Film Festival. While it doesn't look very fun, it does look intriguing, so expect some news about release and distribution shortly thereafter. (Playlist)

Good Luck Making Sense Of This Cryptic J.J. Abrams Teaser For...Something

Huh? Zuh? Kwuh? It's called "Stranger," but if we have learned anything about J.J. Abrams thus far, it's that he won't give us anything of consequence this early out. It's intriguing, if only because Abrams is behind it. Also, the sparseness of the trailer plays to the creepiness at the end, but other than that...let's wait until we get a little more direction before we form opinions. Just kidding. This is the internet. Let's go apeshit with speculation.


James Franco Now Available In Straight To Video Form

James Franco doesn't have enough of your attention yet. It's been a while since anything's been heard from actor/writer/student/professor of Egyptology James Franco, presumably because he's been trotting the globe on his latest adventure. Or maybe he was just working on Shadows & Lies. Here's what it's all about, Francophiles: "Franco plays William Vincent, a quiet and mysterious criminal. When he falls for a New York gangster’s (Josh Lucas) favorite call girl (Julianne Nicholson), Vincent is forced to flee the city, threatened with death if he should ever return. But after four years in exile, Vincent secretly returns intent on rescuing the woman he loves from her dangerous fate." Sounds pretty cool. The movie is coming out on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on June 7, but you can see a clip from the movie above. Enjoy, because Franco just doesn't have enough of your attention yet. (Film School Rejects)


The Wait Is Over: The 'Puss In Boots' Trailer

Here's where I say something like, "This trailer will whet your appetite for 'Puss'!" Yup. That'll do. Antonio Banderas is doing that latin-lover thing again. But this time...in feline form Puss in Boots has (FINALLY) gotten his own spin-off from the Shrek franchise. The voices on this go-round include Banderas as the titular Puss, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Sedaris, Salma Hayek, and Billy Bob Thornton. Kids LOVE Billy Bob Thornton. The outing will be directed by Chris Miller, who cut his teeth on Shrek the Third. This film will find Mr. Boots saving the world from some outlaws that have unlocked a special power or something. It's not really important. What is important is all the adorable stuff this brave warrior does, like lap up cream and chase light projections on the ground. It all harkens back to the duality of man, er, cats. Get knee deep in Puss on November 4th.


'Human Centipede 2' Trailer Sucks Crap (In The Sense That It Looks Horrible)

This movie is so gross, they can't even show it to you. Though they still aren't showing us any footage of Tom Six's new butt-to-mouth monster, a new teaser for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has been stitched together. The teaser focuses on viewers recoiling in horror while watching a private screening of the sequel. That footage is juxtaposed with the early reviews condemning the grotesque film imagery, as well as using the fact that it is banned in Britain as a selling point. In all fairness, these viewers don't seem genuinely scared or upset and could be watching a flicker for all we know. Or The Zookeeper. But, for their sake, I'm hoping it's the flicker.


Conan's 'Walking Dead' Episode Intro Is Perfect

And it didn't even involve bear masturbation. In order to kick off last night's special Walking Dead-themed episode of Conan, Coco visited the backwoods of Georgia to show how the late night host fared during the Zombie Apocalypse. It's incredibly well-done. All in all, I find Zombie Conan much more enjoyable than Zombie Jay Leno. My only qualm is that we didn't get to see a zombified Masturbating Bear. But that's really more of an issue for me to take up with science.


If You Love Green Screens And Martial Arts, Then You'll Love This 'Bunraku' Trailer

If you complain about an unclear plot, you're not focusing enough on the kicking. Yes, we do have a trailer for the rainbow-hued, Woody Harrelson and Josh Hartnett-starring, low-budget, cowboys vs. ninjas saga Bunraku. We've got it right here. For good measure, the producers threw Ron Perlman and Demi Moore in the mix as well. Beyond the cast, a sense of production design, and some non-stop kickin', this trailer doesn't really offer up too much else. The plot is unclear, but that might not even change upon viewing the film. The film seems like an odd choice for any star to participate in, let alone four, and the effects aren't terribly impressive, but it's got a Sin City aesthetic to it that allows for vivid imagery without much money. I doubt you'll find that as a pull quote on the poster, but this film appears weird enough that maybe you will.
