Vampire Horror Film ‘Byzantium’ Trailer and Movie Synopsis
Courtesy of Fandango, here is their unusual plot synopsis for Byzantium.
Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan star in Interview with the Vampire director Neil Jordan’s lavish yet decadent tale of a bloodsucking mother-daughter duo whose dark 200 year history threatens to catch up with them in a run-down hotel on the English coast. Their story begins during the Napoleonic Wars, when young Eleanor (Ronan) was abandoned as Clara (Arterton) fell into a passionate love affair. Two centuries later, demure Eleanor and extroverted Clara are on the run when they seek sanctuary in a dilapidated coastal resort. There, Clara sets her sights on a lonely soul named Noel (Daniel Mays) who has just inherited the Byzantium Hotel, a once-thriving inn that has fallen into a sad state of disrepair. Before long, the elder vampire has transformed the Byzantium into a makeshift brothel where she and her young companion can quench their thirst for human blood while maintaining a low-profile. Meanwhile, Eleanor falls for Frank (Caleb Landry Jones), a charming young waiter who unwittingly draws out the natural storyteller in her. Amidst a string of mysterious disappearances in the sleepy coastal town, Frank realizes that Eleanor’s extraordinary tales are much more than simple fantasy. As Clara and Eleanor’s sanguinary past slowly comes into focus, it’s only a matter of time until the two succubi will be forced to flee once again, or remain to face their fates with a sense of dark courage. Jonny Lee Miller and Sam Riley co-star.

Terence Malick’s New Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem & Olga Kurylenko Led ‘To The Wonder’ Trailer
Terence Malick’s latest film, To The Wonder, is sure to confound audiences and critics alike. It is said to be a largely silent film, with images and emotion pouring off of the screen, allowing the story to seep into your cranium. The film stars Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem, among others. Some other stars, as is the norm with Malick, were cut out of the film. The latest trailer is bold and satisfying in my eyes. Have a look and let us know what you think. Enjoy.
Zack Snyder’s New ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer Hits Marks Outside of Story
Zack Snyder is known as a visual filmmaker. This has led some to question the decision to have him helm the greatest superhero known to man, Superman. The potential payoff in taking that risk however, is the collaboration with Christopher Nolan’s Executive Production overseeing the project, in addition to the fact that Bryan Singer all but killed the legendary hero with a horrendous rendition a few years ago. All of this adds up to questions that will only be revealed by seeing the newest iteration when it debuts later this year. Here, Snyder blends emotional imagery in what amounts to one of the most appealing superhero trailers one can hope for. Its a cross between his 300 visions with a Terence Malick level of emotion. It’s certainly intriguing. Have a look and let us know your thoughts.
The new, epic finale as it is being dubbed, Hangover 3 trailer has surfaced. This trailer finds “The Wolfpack” (a name for the group with which I was unfamiliar) back in Las Vegas after an apparent kidnapping. John Goodman of Big Lebowski fame, is the man doing the kidnapping. Various other things take place, all of which you can see below. #Hilarious
You can also check out the full and very detailed synopsis right here:
This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
The Movie Poster and Trailer For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’ Debuts
Only God Forgives might not have been on the radar quite as much as it deserved prior to this unveiling, but now after having seen the cool poster (below) and trailer (also below) for the Ryan Gosling led feature, all that will change accordingly. The team has re-upped their partnership after the success of the ultra cool Drive (2011) and you can already kind of envision a potential muse-like partnership akin to Leo DiCaprio and Martin Scorcese taking place here. This film looks to be a bloody good time, but I won’t ruin it for you, I’ll let you decide for yourself. Have a look and feel free to chime in with your thoughts.
First ‘Elysium’ Trailer Starring Matt Damon Debuts, Movie Synopsis Included
We talked about Elysium long ago as Sharlto Copley and director Neil Blomkamp broke out the first discussions on the matter. Matt Damon was cast in the lead role and the District 9 looking sequel was in full effect. Now comes the first trailer. The official synopsis for the film from Collider is below:
In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government of?cial, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
You can add this to the must see list for August of this year. Agreed?
‘The Internship’ Trailer Sees Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson Go To Google
The comedy duo that led Wedding Crashers to enormous success is back for another go ’round with The Internship. The trailer has only a laugh or two, but it’s hard to ever count Vaughn out when it comes to taking comedies to box office (and sometimes true comedy) gold. This is a fish out of water tale to say the least. You can see the movie in theaters on June 7, 2013. Check out the trailer and film synopsis, which are below. Enjoy!
Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.
This New Tom Cruise ‘Oblivion’ Trailer Gives More Action & Story Elements
Tom Cruise’s Oblivion, which is set to arrive in short order on April 19th, is easily becoming one of the most anticipated summer films of this year. We got a glimpse of excitement with the first poster and film synopsis, which was then capitalized on by the introduction of the first trailer. Now, we have a new trailer, which goes into greater depths with some action and story elements not before touched on. This film is looking more and more like a Matrix type of endeavor, which hopefully, can only be a good thing. Take a look at the new Obilivion movie trailer and let us know if you are hyped for this one. Enjoy!
New Look at ‘Fast and Furious 6′ Extended Trailer & Synopsis
Everybody’s (except me) favorite car racing good buys, bad guys (not sure what they are anymore) return in Fast and Furious 6. Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and more show up the five time sequel. The shit is pretty hilarious, although admittedly, I don’t think I have seen one of these movies since the first one, which wasn’t particularly good in the first place. Still, the obvious campy feel and bad acting can only culminate in a hopeful good time for the thousands of fans that will spend millions of dollars to see this film. Check out the long form extended look at the movie and the film synopsis below. Just don’t get caught speeding to and from the theater on May 24th when you check this flick out. Enjoy.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
