Disney has released several spiffy new character posters to support its other-side-of-the-story fairytale, Maleficent – and a new clip featuring Maleficent’s uninvited crashing of Princess Aurora’s Christening. Awkward!
Check them out after the jump. Maleficent swoops into theaters May 30th.
Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day may be based on a children’s novel, but it’s a classic and looks like great fun for all ages. The movie’s first trailer made me laugh more than I expected and reinforced a concept I’ve long held dear – bad luck is contagious!
The movie stars Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, Megan Mullally, Jennifer Coolidge, Kerris Dorsey and Ed Oxenbould. Check it out after the jump. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day careens into theaters on October 10th.
Every time I see a press release for the Oculus movie, I immediately think – they are making a film out of the Augmented Reality headgear company? But no, Relative Media’s horror thriller stars upcoming horror-thriller, OCULUS. Starring Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Rory Cochrane and Katee Sackhoff, the new film by writer-director Mike Flanagan first premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Here’s a first look at the trailer!
I’m going to be honest here, I didn’t like the first Spider-Man but I’m hoping to love Spidey 2, but I’m just not sure about this trailer and the idea of this being a trilogy. I’m fairly positive that I can guess what the ending will be, but we’ll see. Here is the brand new spot that aired during the Super-Bowl.
I know the 80s had some really cheesy movies, but more were more cheesetatic than Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze and a pre Dirty Dancing (and Ferris Bueller) Jennifer Grey. Hollywood has finally gotten around to remaking this classic and I’m really hoping its just as cheeserific as the original. Take a gander.
Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie isn’t the first instance of someone remaking his own work (in this instance, a live-action short Burton did in his short time at disney when he was just starting out) and it won’ be the last. It will probably be the strangest – as the film’s first full –length trailer suggests.
People Like Us is a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine (“Star Trek”) as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father’s estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father’s last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about his family—and re-examine his own life choices in the process.
People Like Us is the the feature film directing debut of co-writer Alex Kurtzman [Alias, Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek]. The DreamWorks Pictures releases opens on June 29, 2012. Check out the Sizzle Reel Featurette above.
