'World War Z' Official Trailer Will (Metaphorically) Eat Your Brains

Spoiler: It's not like the book. Diehard fans of World War Z (the book) got all up in arms when they found that the "oral history" aspect of the book was being forsaken because it would have cost a metric shitload of money to produce twenty-odd vignettes around the world. It understandable that a movie studio would diminish the breadth of scope of the novel and focus it a little more for the purposes of narrative and cost. However, this trailer shows that the film became more or less the story of Brad Pitt's character and his family, and looks sort of like Outbreak meets Independence Day. It's a departure, and seems to nullify what made the book so special, but the film still looks good, though in a much more conventional way. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, read the book. It's terrific, and is an amazing narrative and story, regardless of whether or not you give a damn about zombies.

'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)

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.


Oh, Hai 'Thor: The Dark World' Trailer

In a controversial move, Marvel taps Tommy Wiseau to replace Tom Hiddleston in the highly-anticipated sequel. Poor Loki. Not only is he locked away in the least ornate of Asgard's prisons for eternity, but his bosses at the bank took his ideas and put them into practice without giving him a promotion. The bank saves money, and they are using him, and he is the fool. Also, his adopted brother Thor wants to team up and be frenemies in order to save Jane Foster. It seems that Thor's bonehead idea of warping her to a dark, mystical battlefield has put her life in the type of peril that can't be easily solved by throwing a hammer around. He's really got to broaden his horizons.
