Trailer Update: Dragon Tattoo, War Horse, The Woman, I Melt With You, The Catechism Cataclysm
Yay, quite a few new trailers in one go, and some of them pretty damn cool. Check them out after the break. Just a little warning, some of the trailers are probably slightly NSFW (in particular, I Melt With You and The Woman).
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo International Trailer
Basically a trimmed down version of that long trailer I posted the other day. Still keen as all hell!
Also check out this viral video over at Movieweb depicting the making of a razorblade Dragon Tattoo poster set to Trent Reznor's score. It's pretty cool, and the music is creepy in the extreme.
This Sundance horror sensation is extremely high on my must see list. When will we see it? Heaven knows, but apparently it is great (sitting on 87% on Rottentomatoes, which is hella high for this kind of film), and extremely disturbing. One of my favourite horrors is a film called May, and this is the next one from the same director, Lucky McKee. Angela Bettis (who played the role of May) is even in this one too, and yes, she is busy at a sewing machine again (insert worried face).
Hmmm, this movie is looking a bit better now and has me half convinced. You can't go wrong with lots of horse tracking shots. The horse is an undeniably powerful force on screen, and has been for many years, and in this film Spielberg seems to make the most of it. Still, this one could go either way. What I did like was that short speech at the end... especially the fact that the actor who is doing the speech, Benedict Cumberbatch, is the voice of Smaug in The Hobbit. I like the sound of him.
I Melt With You
This trailer has been out for a while, but I only watched it now. The tired plot is what prevented me from seeing it earlier: four longtime male friends (Rob Lowe, Tom Jane, Jeremy Piven, and Christian McKay) suffering from midlife crises escape together for debauched gatherings. Sounds like the same crap we've seen millions of times. Well, then the following morsels (from Slashfilm) came to my attention: (1) apparently it is pretty much the most divisive film to come out of Sundance (in the words of Slashfilm's Angie Han: "When I say the film was divisive, I mean really — to the extent where it seems like the only consensus to be found among critics is that the film is really divisive"), which is always enough to pique the interest; and (2) the film turns into "something deeply fucked up". Plus I am a fan of those actors and the trailer looks good...
The Catechism Cataclysm
A rocker and a priest get lost in the woods. Lol, loving the title. Looks very funny, but with funny trailers I have been wrong so many times I don't bother counting anymore. It's easy to make a movie look funny in 2 minutes. What do you think?
