The full trailer for The Expendables 2 is out. It's mind-blowing how much it looks like a lost Cannon Films movie...and I love that.
I found the first one to be very meh. Really, it was just Stallone and Statham that got the spotlight. Everyone else pretty much disappeared until the end.
But this movie seriously needs Wesley Snipes.

So does Stallone. Well, maybe not so much old as bad. I hope the movie doesn't plan to have many close-ups on him, not that I plan to see it. I laughed out loud at the showdown between him and Jean Claude Van Damme. I'm not sure why Jean wouldn't kick his ass every which way from Sunday, given their fighting styles.
Expendables 2 however, looks like more of the same, except Arnie looks so old.

Well this sounds like a terrible idea. Updating Tarzan never works and Kellan Lutz can't act.
Even if that wasn't true, it is, good acting and good production didn't helped John Carter. I hope they don't spent as much money in it, though.

Wait; I heard it's going to be animated. Yep; so Deadline reported. Is it going to be photorealistic animation like Beowulf?
Oh, it's going to be a turkey. But a turkey with Kellan Lutz jumping around in a loincloth for a couple of hours, so I'm in for a ticket.

I was going to see this movie anyway, but I'm a total sucker for anything that uses "Dream On," even in a trailer.

Unfortunately, he's still not available for work.

It really does. I've always had a soft spot for Ben Affleck. He's not an amazing actor but the movies he has directed so far have been really good and he always has an amazing cast who delivers for him. Based on the trailer, I'd say it continues. I really hope it's good.

This is her hundredth announced project for the month, isn't it? When will she find time to do all this? Of course, I don't actually care about anything but Kick-Ass 2. As long as Hit-Girl is just as awesome as before, the rest can go hang.

First trailer for Gangster Squad.
Looks interesting, but I'm not loving whatever Ryan Gosling is doing with his voice.
Heh, for me it was not being able to understand Sean Penn a couple of times. My hearing must be weird; I had no problems understanding Bane in the Dark Knight Rises trailers, but Penn was a different story.
But I'm really looking forward to the film. And it just dawned on me that besides the obvious Ryan Gosling/Emma Stone Crazy, Stupid, Love reunion, we're also getting a Half-Nelson reunion with Gosling and Anthony Mackie. And a Milk reunion with Penn and Josh Brolin. And a Warrior reunion with Nick Nolte and Frank Grillo. I should probably stop, because I'd probably could go on for a while if I really looked into it.

I love Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis...but is it wrong after watching this trailer, all I can think about is if the baby is okay?
Well they did added the bit of "having an iron jaw" so the baby is probably okay and they probably will add a "no baby was harmed during the filming of this movie" at the end for our peace of mind.

Has he ever played outright evil before? He seems to be pretty bad from the trailer, and given the rating, he is probably even worse in the actual movie.
Matthew McConaughey is having a nice little resurgence in his career, though I didn't think he could top Frailty. But apparently he gives the performance of his career in Killer Joe.

That looks great! Especially compared to all the crappily photoshopped group photos from so many movies.
I am absolutely in love with the poster, though.

What is it that Sean Penn's character says in the beginning?
"I'm not an educated man, but I've read some history. Every kingdom comes up bloody; every castle is built on a pile of bones. When I came out here, L.A. was nothing. Back East, I was a gangster. Out here, I'm God." Words to that effect, anyway. ;)

Thank you. That is the part that puzzled me, even though now it seems logical reading it. Still, I keep hearing "Mod nezhkei didmea" when he says it.

ETA: Damn. Check out the impressive roster for Carol I mean, holy crap:
Based on Patricia Highsmith's novel The Price of Salt (she also wrote The Mr. Ripley novels and Strangers on A Train); Directed by John Crowley who is responsible for the incredible Boy A; screenplay written by Phyllis Nagy who wrote Mrs. Harris; and will star Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska.
From Cinema Blend:
FYI: So, the book is sixty years old, but the link mentions how the novel ends. I've never heard of the book and I don't think it would really spoil anything, but I thought I should give a warning to those who don't want to know about overall ending of the novel.
Wasikowska will play Therese, a twenty-something store clerk whose deep loneliness subsides in the presence of the glamorous and mysterious Carol. Blanchett will portray the eponymous heroine who is coping with the breakup of her marriage, and struggling to stay connected to her daughter. Her ex-husband, having discovered the Sapphic pair's relationship, threatens to sue for full-custody, putting an incredible strain on Therese and Carol's blossoming bond.
Anyway, I'm sooooo glad Cate Blanchett has a bunch of movies lined up.

Well, Sean Penn's delivery leaves something to be desired. :D

So I'm gonna take a wild guess and assume Matthew Fox is a (the) villain. And I'm sorry, anything that mentions Tyler Perry immediately compels me to mockery, if only in my head. I just cannot take the man seriously. I mean, if I believed he's evolved (and I realize he's trying), I could let go of the fact that his claim to fame was cross-dressing as a fat black woman. But he hasn't. To go from Morgan Freeman to...Tyler Perry as Alex Cross is laughable, and not in a good way. I suppose it's arguable that Tyler Perry has screen presence, but I'm thinking it's not the kind you want in a character like Alex Cross.
First pics of I, Alex Cross with Tyler Perry as the lead. But who cares about that.
