Satirical ‘Dear White People’ Movie Trailer Also Does Not Spare Blacks
A Sundance winning movie Dear White People has its first official trailer. I was expecting to hate Dear White People based on the title alone. I very well may have been wrong in that racist, stereotypical prejudgement, although early IMDB reviews are not flattering: 4.2/100 on 811 votes. Okay, I’m taking it too far, but you get the point. The trailer directs satirical humor on race relations in all directions and based on the 2 and a half minute look below, it may indeed be worth your while. Whites, blacks, and even a shot at mexicans can be found within. Normally, when you see a title like this, you know it is attempting to draw controversial attention to itself and while that is assuredly the case, there still could be laughs and truths to be had. We will see.
Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike in ‘Hector and The Search For Happiness’ Movie Trailer
In this often disillusioned world, a movie about looking for happiness seems appropriate. Thus, the deliberately titled Hector and The Search For Happiness is timely.
The film is based on the bestselling novel by François Lelord, and Pegg plays a disillusioned psychiatrist searching the globe to find the secret to happiness.(Deadline)
Hector (Simon Pegg) leaves his love (Rosamund Pike) to begin his quest that takes him to remote locations and has him meeting all types of people. Will he return fulfilled or will he forever be trapped in a state of never ending searching? Alas, you need to see the movie in order to find out the answer, yes? Enjoy the trailer.
David Fincher’s New ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer with Ben Affleck & Rosamund Pike
Director David Fincher’s Gone Girl is one of the most anticipated films of the year. It is currently tearing up the poll on our site for being just that. We saw the first trailer for the film not too long ago, and while cold and didactic, it wasn’t particularly revealing. This latest trailer has a little more going on for it. Admittedly, most of the excitement surrounding this film for fans is simply based on the trust that is held for the director. The casting of Affleck may put more asses in the seats at the end of the day, but I wouldn’t view his inclusion as a particularly needle swaying issue one way or another. Have a look and enjoy.
Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus: Gods & Kings’ Movie Trailer
Christian Bale stars as Moses in director Ridley Scott’s latest epic. The man behind the 2000 hit Gladiator and the not so much flop Kingdom of Heaven (Orlando Bloom may have had something to do with that), comes back to a similarly-looking film with a bigger star. Whereas Gladiator made Russell Crowe a star, Bale is an established lead of the highest order, who can make Hollywood fare or Oscar fare and sometimes both. A good combination to have when you are looking for a hit like Scott is. This biblical film has a good chance to do just that.
The Exodus Gods and Kings trailer can be seen in its entirety below. Have a look and wait for the film to arrive soon.
Brad Pitt & Logan Lerman Lead David Ayer’s ‘Fury’ Movie Trailer & Synopsis
David Ayer, the writer behind Training Day and director of End of Watch leaves behind the cop genre for war with his upcoming feature Fury. Fury stars Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman in a World War II epic. The trailer itself is a mix of action and drama, with somewhat typical genre tropes though there is enough room for hope that the film will bring more to the table. The plot synopsis via Wikipedia is below:
The film is set during the last months of World War II in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened U.S. Army sergeant in the 2nd Armored Division named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank called “Fury” and its five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
Since the film versions of some twenty years ago about a group on radioactive turtles come to ass-kicking life in a comic book graced the screen to such success, a remake launch was inevitable in this pathetic retread Hollywood age that we currently inhabit. So, here is the second trailer for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Megan Fox, who’s star has dimmed considerably in the last 3-5 years, co-stars in the hopes of adding asses to the seats for what aims to be a family friendly film for a new generation. I have my serious doubts. Check the trailer and decide for yourself.
Tom Hardy & James Gandolfini in ‘The Drop’ International Movie Trailer
It’s hard to believe that a year ago James Gandolfini, best known as star of HBO’s “The Sopranos” hit series, passed away. Still, a few post-humous works have fortunately made their way to the masses in his wake. The Drop, which is anchored by The Dark Knight Rises Tom Hardy, is the latest and perhaps last, of these such films. It also looks like it might the best of the bunch. When a bar with a secret drop is robbed, which appears to be mob money, heads will roll. Hardy’s non-hard bartender will be faced with life or death choices. Also stars Noomi Rapace and the always fun John Ortiz. This will be seen.
Johnson and Wayans in ‘Let’s Be Cops’ RedBand Movie Trailer
With the title incomplete, ha, made you look. This is Jake Johnson, who for some reason is blowing up large right now (not saying it is undeserved but still) and Damon Wayans Jr. (yes, the son of the 90′s funnyman). Let’s Be Cops stars the duo as friends who dress up for a party as cops, and are so convincing that they essentially end up playing cops in a real sting operation. Anything to get the girl and anything for laughs as the saying in basterdized form goes. This redband trailer has the requisite goods one looks for I suppose. Perhaps I am way off base there but have a look and see for yourself. Enjoy.
