Although it never achieved mainstream success, 'The Raid' is undoubtedly one of the best action movies ever made. So how does a sequel to one of the best action movies even begin to top the original? The newly released trailer for 'The Raid 2' shows us: by going bigger and crazier in every way possible.
If you think the past few weeks have seen an absurd number of '300: Rise of an Empire' promotional materials, you'd be thinking right. Now, there's another new trailer. After years of development and a lengthy, delay-filled post-production, the sequel to Zack Snyder's '300' is finally seeing the light of day in a few weeks, and Warner Bros. is doing everything in their power to make sure that you and your mother and your next door neighbor are aware that it is a thing that exists and can be seen in theaters. But are any of these clips and posters and TV spots actually doing anything to get people excited?
The 'Cesar Chavez' trailer shows off a template that should prove familiar to anyone who goes to the movies with any regularity. It takes an important person with an incredible life story, makes his name the title of the film and casts a recognizable face in the lead, painting a portrait that screams, "This is the definitive story of our subject and, yes, we would appreciate all of the critical attention you could throw our way.' While it's easy to be cynical about biopics like this, 'Cesar Chavez' has one thing going for it beyond the vital subject matters: star Michael Pena.
Once upon a time, Hammer Films was the studio behind seemingly every great horror movie that came out of England. 'The Quiet Ones' is the latest film to be released under that resurrected brand, and the newest trailer for the film promises a movie that seems to walk hand-in-hand with the studios' classics. Well, at least in spirit. We'll have to see how the whole "quality" thing works out.
Mr. Peabody has 99 talents but keeping his "pet" out of trouble ain't one. Yeah, that was lame but fitting considering that the awkward dad of 'Modern Family,' Ty Burrell, voices the genius talking dog. DreamWorks released a new 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' trailer, which chronicles the time travels of him and his human (voiced by Max Charles), as well as a clip showing off the canine's wide range of talents.
In the great tradition of films like 'The Last Stand,' 'The Expendables 3,' the 'Red' movies and 'Grudge Match' comes the new 'Bad Asses' trailer, this time showing that Danny Trejo and Danny Glover are not just your run-of-the-mill old geezers who watch TV in tracksuits all day. They're ready to kick some ass.
A few years ago, Eli Roth directed a fake trailer called 'Clown,' which teased a non-existent movie about a family man who finds himself transforming into a demonic clown. Now, this disturbing concept has become a reality. The trailer for the completely real feature version of 'Clown' is online, and it looks just plain upsetting.
It was hard enough to believe that in March of 2013 'Veronica Mars' finally dusted off its chances at a big-screen adaptation, even harder now to think that 2014 will finally see the fan-funded film hit theaters. After months of waiting, the first full trailer for the 'Veronica Mars' movie has arrived, chock full of old favorites, new mysteries and characters, and more than a few punches to throw!
Director Anton Corbijn's 'A Most Wanted Man,' adapted from 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' author John le Carre's novel, will soon be released in the US by way of Lionsgate, but for now we have to settle for a Spanish-subtitled trailer of this psychological thriller.
