'The Robber' May Contain Trace Amounts Of 'Run Lola Run'

This Austrian film looks a bit like a great German film, in a very good way. Any movie with a character named Pumpgun Ronnie has to be pretty good, right? Of course it does. And the trailer for the German-language film The Robber proves that point. Having gotten scooped up off the festival circuit, it's being remade for in English with Andrew Garfield starring, but the original version, which is primed for a small US release, seems to foot the bill just fine in a Run Lola Run-type of way. The film, which is based on a true story, follows the madcap hijinks of Johann Rettenberger, who was an Austrian amateur marathon runner who would rob banks, then escape using his long-distance running skills. Hokey as fiction, but pretty swee knowing that it actually happened. Enjoy the original before they put a bunch of Alex Pettyfer and Twitter in the American remake. The original German-language version hits the sweet land of liberty April 29th.

Kristen Wiig And Zach Galifianakis Are Unlikely Bank Robbers In 'Masterminds' Trailer

Zach Galifianakis can do anything he wants in Hollywood, and what he wants to do is showcase his love of ladywigs and the use of the southern accent. That's exactly what we're getting from Masterminds, a heist film that stars Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig as armored car drivers who make off with $17 million. And then immediately lose $17 million. Owen Wilson slips his bumbling robber shoes back on to play the leader of a gang of inept criminals, who hires Jason Sudeikis's hitman to hunt down Galifianakis. Jody Hill and Danny McBride are credited as two of the film's five(!) writers, so when this bombs, it can't be argued there isn't a lot of comedic talent involved. Maybe audiences just aren't ready for ladywigs.


Netflix Offers A Trailer For Its First Original Series, 'Lilyhammer'

Fans of Silvio Dante from 'The Sopranos', this is for you. That's right, Lilyhammer. Netflix first (and admittedly, lowest profile when compared to House of Cards and Arrested Development) original series follows The Sopranos' Steven Van Zandt as a mobster (!) who enters the witness protection program in Lillehammer, Norway. Of course, we watch him as a fish out of water in both civil matters, and, presumably, watch him fall back into the Scandinavian underworld. The entire series will be released at once starting on February 6, so you can plow through the eight episode first season run with no waiting. Judging from the trailer, getting through the series should take me about eight hours. This show looks pretty damn good, with a Coen-brothers sensibility; a balance of drama, action, and comedy. Yay February!


'Oz: The Great And Powerful' Trailer Gives Us An Origin Story, Mila Kunis

Really great, but only sorta powerful. This much-anticipated Sam Raimi film appears to be everything that we would like a Tim Burton film to be. It's got great effects that seem relevant to the story. It's got central characters that aren't played by Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. It's got a story, though somewhat familiar, that seems pretty damn crafty and fun. I don't want to get too gushy about a trailer, but Oz: The Great and Powerful looks as though it's oozing originality. And how could it not? It's got Franco!


'Goonies' Director Richard Donner Says There Will Be A Sequel With Original Cast

The guy who played Sloth, an actor named George Clooney, hasn't confirmed this yet. The Goonies will be back, or so says original director Richard Donner, whom TMZ accosted while he was signing autographs. In no uncertain terms, Donner says in the video, "We're making a Goonies sequel." When asked if the stars will return, he responds, "Hopefully, all of them." Sure. Good luck fitting it into Corey Feldman's filming schedule these days. CAUTION: You have to put up with some stupid incendiary babble from the TMZ video guy to get to the point.


Watch The Original '30 Rock' Pilot Starring Rachel Dratch As Jenna

Is like watching TV in an alternate dimension. Where they speak English. Beamed to us from the same alternate universe where Eric Stoltz played Marty McFly in BTTF, comes this original, unaired 30 Rock pilot starring Rachel Dratch in the role of Jenna, before she was replaced by Jane Krakowski. The decision to recast was made when NBC decided to scale back the in-show sketches and go with a more traditional sitcom actress. But Fey wanted to keep her buddy in the mix so decided to have Dratch play a different character in each episode which is a really fun idea like when Loo-Kee would hide in the background of She-Ra: Princess of Power episodes. Only difference is Loo-Kee didn't get totally f*cked by the execs at Filmation.


The New 'Jonah Hex' Trailer is a Tired Rehash of the Original

Megan Fox (Left) speaks with Edward James Olmos (Right) between takes.If the latest installment of the Jonah Hex trailer series is any indication, Hollywood is officially out of ideas.The original trailer, which premiered last month, told the story of the upcoming Jonah Hex movie staring Josh Brolin as the titular cowboy bounty hunter who straddles the world of the living and the dead. The trailer also featured Megan Fox and John Malkovich, and was cheered by fans and critics alike for its non-stop action and witty dialogue.Although the new trailer features the entire original cast, the sequel squanders any good will earned by the first installment. It is nothing more than a tired rehash of its predecessor, devoid of any original ideas whatsoever. Brolin, Fox and Malkovich should be ashamed to be associated with this transparent marketing ploy which seems to have the singular purpose of selling movie tickets to eager fanboys.Watch the pathetic new Jonah Hex trailer after the jump.
