I just stumbled across the first trailer for Logan (for some reason, 20th Century Fox is the only major studio that won’t put me on their critics’ list).
Set to the strains of Johnny Cash’s take on NIN’s Hurt, this is a future Logan – a mutant who has gotten old in a world where Mutants are gone. A man without a purpose until Professor Charles Xavier gives him one…
Logan will be in theaters on March3, 2017.
Beginning today, Eclipse will be grading trailers the same way we grade movies. The Logan trailer is a great place to start.
Toshiro Mifune is one of the world’s great cinematic actors. His characters had depth and with; he could be nuanced or way over the top, depending on what the role required. He made fourteen films with legendary director Akira Kurosawa – including Seven Samurai and Yojimbo (which inspired The Magnificent Seven and the Man with No Name Trilogy).
Mifune: The Last Samurai is a biography of/tribute to Toshiro Mifune by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki. Narrated by Keanu Reeves, it features interviews with filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and more.
Mifune: The Last Samurai premieres in New York City on November 25th before being platformed in succeeding week. The trailer follows the jump.
How’s this for two reveals in one post? The first poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the teaser trailer!
The poster has a kind of noir-ish feel to it and – wait! Where are Rocket and Groot? Mystery! (See: noir-ish?) Not to worry, there’s a glimpse of them in the teaser. Plus a hug. And Yondu gone full mohawk.
It’s all disturbingly entertaining. Check it out after the jump. You’re welcome. Obviously.
Aquarius opens this weekend, exclusively, at the Angelika Mosiac . The film was a Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or nominee and many are saying it’s star Sônia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman) is a lock for an Oscar Nomination. The movie tells the story of a Brazillion woman who stands in the way of the gentrification of her neighborhood. Business are coming and she’s standing in the way of “progress,” by refusing to sell her Condo to a big development company. Check out this beautiful trailer.
After all the whitewashing talk, it turns out that Matt Damon plays one of several heroes in Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall – which also stars Jian Lian, Andy Lau and Pedro Pascal – as shown in a Chinese poster I found online.
A new trailer was screened today at New York Comic-Con 2016. Check it out after the jump.
