Darren Aronofsky’s Russell Crowe-Led ‘Noah’ Movie Trailer & Poster Debut
Here are the brand new movie poster and trailer for Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream Director Darren Aronofsky’s Russell Crowe vehicle “Noah”, based on the biblical telling of Noah’s Ark. The poster recalls “300″ in vibe, while the trailer echoes thoughts of most epic films (Gladiator, etc.), but that is not necessarily a bad thing. 300 was a visual treat that did big business and Gladiator notched an Oscar for Crowe, who has since kind of fell on hard times at the box office. Hopefully, this is a rebirth for a talented actor and continuing growth for an equally-skilled director. Check them out.
Kevin Hart and O’Shea Jackson Star in Ride Along Trailer & Synopsis
Ice Cube once said Fuck The Police. Now, he plays a cop. Here he stars opposite Kevin Hart in the comedy Ride Along. The trailer and synopsis are below.
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life. For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela. Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it. John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story. Ride Along is produced by Will Packer (Think Like a Man), alongside Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Barbershop) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam).
Martin Scorcese. Leonardo DiCaprio. Wall Street. What more do you want? Well, based on the trailer, plenty of partying, tomfoolery and general debauchery. Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie and more all make an appereance. The film is based on the Jordan Belfort book. Its book synopsis is below:
By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called…
In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent.
Reputedly the prototype for the film Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont turned microcap investing into a wickedly lucrative game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out brokers browbeat clients into stock buys that were guaranteed to earn obscene profits–for the house. But an insatiable appetite for debauchery, questionable tactics, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe designer named Steve Madden would land Belfort on both sides of the law and into a harrowing darkness all his own.
From the stormy relationship Belfort shared with his model-wife as they ran a madcap household that included two young children, a full-time staff of twenty-two, a pair of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere—even as the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them—to the unbridled hedonism of his office life, here is the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down…
‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ Trailer Is Light On Hobbit, Heavy on Others
The sequel to the extravagantly budgeted The Hobbit from last year, has its first trailer. The trailer is heavy on other characters with the exception of the main one in the title, The Hobbit. He has a few quick moments in the two plus minutes, but so do dragons and tons of other characters that I’d know if I had seen the first movie, or actually cared about any of it, which I don’t. But, maybe you do. Have at it and take a look.
Final ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer Promises Flash, But More?
Director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel arrives in theaters in short order. It is sure to be one of the most controversial films leading p to its release in my eyes. Here, we have a telling of a story seen on screen and comic book form several times over the years. Most recently, the reboot from Bryan Singer, The Usual Suspects director, failed to result in a franchise relaunch and now we are back to drawing board again. Not sure what to make of all of it. Zack’s film looks appealing. It has a tone that melds an auteur’s style with some compelling visuals and set pieces, but I am wondering if it’s all going to be enough to get this thing going once again. The final trailer for the film is below. I think it’s good, but there is not a lot of talking going on, like all the trailers before it, so its hard to tell if this will be gripping or merely visual.
Lady Gaga, Sofia Vergara in ‘Machete Kills’ Trailer & Synopsis
Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Danny Trejo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba and more, land in director Robert Rodriguez’s sequel to Machete. Machete Kills is the epitome of a B-movie, but that is the point. Check out the synopsis followed by the first full trailer below. Enjoy.
In MACHETE KILLS, Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale agent MACHETE, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.
Scarlett Johansson in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Porn ‘Don Jon’ Trailer
Joseph Gordon Levitt makes his directorial debut in Don Jon, a film about a guy who’s obsessed with porn. He meets the girl of his dreams in Scarlett Johansson and things get a little crazy from there. The movie trailer is below. EW and Rolling Stone have two glowing quotes for the film. The official synopsis from iTunes.
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudekis ‘We’re The Millers’ RedBand Trailer & Movie Poster
Jennifer Aniston plays a stripper and one-time rumored romantic partner Jason Sudekis a loser who decides/has to smuggle some weed into the US from Mexico. We’re The Millers RedBand Trailer & Movie Poster is below for your viewing pleasure. Seems pretty much a standard run of the mill comedy, some decent humor, even a phallic shot and a potty mouthed Aniston to help steal the show. This one should truly test how well Aniston fares at the box office, though it seems she is kind of been veering down this more “risky” path for a while.
A drug dealer heads across the U.S./Mexico border with a large stash of weed while pretending to be a family man in this road-trip comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis.
Star Studded ‘Blood Ties’ Trailer with Retro Looking Movie Poster Looks Good
Finally there is another movie to possibly get excited about (yet sadly, a quick glance at IMDB says otherwise..hmm). Blood Ties, from co-writer James Gray (Two Lovers) and directed by Guillaume Canet making his English language debut. The film is set in 70′s Brooklyn with a look and feel that based on the trailer and poster below, feels spot on. A brief desciption of the film:
Two brothers, on either side of the law, face off over organized crime in Brooklyn during the 1970s.
Those two brothers are played by Clive Owen and Billy Crudup (still wondering why he doesn’t get more roles). One’s a cop (Crudup) and one is a criminal, who may or may not be trying to change. Kunis and Cotillard star as love interests (solid choices at that). Have a look for yourself.
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.
