Amazon Studios has released the first trailer for the highly anticipated Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot starring Joaquin Phoenix and written and directed by Gus Van Sant. The film is set to premiere later this month at the Sundance Film Festival.
The first trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen’s new film Hail, Caesar! was recently released and is a meta-comedy starring pretty much everyone in Hollywood.
So I’ve already gushed over The Lego Movie trailer but now there’s even more news coming out of Comic-Con, plus a new poster so I get to do it all over again!
First off, check out this new The Lego Movie Comic-Con exclusive poster!
Love that lens flare.
Not only is there a new poster, but it was announced this week that there will be a The Lego Movie video game as well. Much like their other games, such as Lego Marvel Super Heroes, it will have plenty of characters to collect and play, 90 to be exact. Plus 15 levels of Lego Movie fun!
Just that news would be enough but during the Warner Bros./Legendary panel at Comic-Con, which brought us the news of the Man of Steel sequel and Flash and Justice League movies, the actors who would be providing some of the voices of the characters in The Lego Movie were announced as well.
It had already been announced that the main character, Emmet, would be voiced by the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy star, Chris Pratt, but now we also know that Channing Tatum will be providing the voice of Superman and Jonah Hill that of Green Lantern. While those are big names, it’s the voice of Wonder Woman that is a little bit surprising.
Perhaps having one of the busiest Comic-Con’s this year, it’s none other than Cobie Smulders. One minute she’s part of the huge Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, the next she’s moving over to DC (sort of) as Wonder Woman’s voice. Oh and her CBS show, HIMYM, officially announced it’s final season. Girlfriend is a hot commodity right now!
One big update on Lego Marvel Super Heroes and his name is Stan Lee. I don’t know if you’ve heard of him, but you might have. Check out what the guys over at IGN have to say about the Marvel mastermind’s involvement.
That does if for a Lego update, be sure to catch all of Grizzly Bomb’s Comic-Con coverage through the weekend and in the coming days as we consume and digest this gluttonous amount of info from San Diego!
Are you ready for another Quentin Tarantino film to blow your mind and possibly make you question your sanity? We are. Definitely.
The second trailer for Django Unchained was released today, and now we’re wishing that time travel really was a thing so December would be here already.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
The film is set in the pre-Civil War era and tells the story of Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave living in the Deep South who is sold to Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is actually a bounty hunter, and offers to help free Django’s wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), from a ruthless plantation owner (Leonardo Dicaprio) as long as Django agrees to help him kill off a gang of killers known as the Brittle Brothers.
For me, seeing Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Jonah Hill, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo DiCaprio side-by-side immediately made me think, “WTH?” But from what we can see in the trailer, it appears that they all have great chemistry, especially between Foxx, DiCaprio, and Waltz. Hill of course has one of his snippets of funny inserted into a rather bleak and upcoming KKK-type raid, and Jackson always seems to be a BAMF no matter what role he plays. DiCaprio’s performance will probably disgust me because he’s such a good actor (and he’s the bad guy, so there’s that).
The trailer reveals an odd-yet-expected-because-it’s-Tarantino mixture of spaghetti western mixed with slightly modern dialogue and lots of gun shooting and explosions. The costumes and sets appear to be period, though, so as not to make it too funky. And Django wants everyone to know his name is spelled D-J-A-N-G-O, where “the ‘D’ is silent.”
Django opens on Christmas Day.
What could possibly be funnier then a movie staring Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade? It’s probably one of the funnier group of comedic actors that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (writers along with Jared Stern) could come up with in Hollywood today. This, as one would think, had the potential to be a “dream team” to have in a comedy. Maybe it would have worked if it was just a comedy. However, the sci-fi element seems to be too much to balance with and it makes the poor decisions throughout the movie and results in The Watch being an epic fail of a sci-fi comedy.
