NEW “Super 8” Trailer

March 12, 2011 Leave a comment

I know I’m a couple of days behind the curve on posting this, but better late than never. J.J. Abrams’ new film “Super 8” has got to be one of the most highly anticipated and secretive projects of the year. This new trailer has given the greatest amount of information and clues into the film’s plot, characters and events.

J.J. Abrams has always been kind of a question mark for me. I’ve always thought that “Mission Impossible III” was a ridiculous piece of garbage. “Lost” was a great show, but I’m not sure how much credit I actually want to give Abrams, himself, for it. “Star Trek” was definitely an exciting and satisfying piece of cinema, so that has definitely improved his image, in my mind. However, I can remember all of the talk referring to this young hotshot as the next Steven Spielberg, and I’m not sure anything could convince me of that.

Until now. Not gonna lie, this movie has me stoked. If Abrams can successfully pull off this venture, than he will in no doubt be placed in the cream of the crop of young directors working to change the face of cinema for the better. With the threads of nostalgia that I’ve felt sewn into all of the spectacular action and suspense, I wouldn’t doubt it if this film becomes the “Inception” of the year, and ending up with a Best Picture nomination from the Oscars come January.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. With this trailer, the film has a LOT to live up to. We shall find out if it, and Abrams, are all they’re cracked up to be come July. In the meantime, watch the trailer, below. There are no HD versions available on Youtube, yet. Therefore, if you’re hungry for higher resolution, click the Twitter link below the embed.

One more note: how cool is it to see Spielberg producing under the Amblin Entertainment logo, again? This trailer is the mayor of nostalgia city.

NEW “Trust” Trailer

February 9, 2011 Leave a comment

Little do people know that David Schwimmer, best known for his role as Ross on TV’s “Friends, is more than just a geeky/charming actor in sitcoms. He spends a lot of time acting and directing for the Chicago theater district, and most recently, adding his creative touch behind the camera as well. His new film, “Trust,” has been working the festival circuit for months now and is getting ready for its release to the general public. This is following yet another ratings battle with the MPAA. Schwimmer fought as hard as he could for a PG-13 rating, but could not get anything below an R. Considering the film’s subject matter, it’s hard to imagine anything less.

The plot revolves around a teenage girl who is tricked via the internet and then seduced, photographed and raped by a middle-aged man. Sounds very PG-13esque, no? The parents of the girl then must face the consequences and aftermath and try to pick up the pieces of their shattered family. The film does not look like one for the faint of heart, seeing that Schwimmer does not seem to sugarcoat the realities of the film. However, I’m more than a little intrigued to see how this movie plays out/ Having Clive Owen and Catherine Keener in the lead, with supporting performances by Viola Davis, Noah Emmerich and Tom McCarthy, doesn’t hurt. I believe that Clive Owen is one of the most exciting actors working in cinema today. When he picks up the right role, he can be absolutely brilliant and electrifying to watch. And after seeing this, I believe that this might be his meatiest role since “Children of Men.” Can’t wait to find out.
