Paramount has unveiled the first official trailer for Gemini Man from acclaimed director Ang Lee. Will Smith stars as Henry Brogen, an aging assassin seeking to exit his career, who finds himself going against a younger clone of himself who can predict his every move.
We’re still more than a year out from the release of Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), but we’ve already got a teaser and a new picture directly from star Margot Robbie.
The short 20-second teaser is set to Moderat’s “A New Error,” which could be an ominous sign of things to come, or a playful jab at fans who consider Suicide Squad – the last movie to star Harley Quinn – to have been one big mistake. Either way, this video doesn’t give much away in terms of dialogue or story, but it does show some quick flashes of the players.
Monsters come in many forms.
Much like in 2008, Bad Robot has surprised us with the release of a Cloverfield film, and this time, both the release and the finished product are decidedly more impressive. 10 Cloverfield Lane ditches the POV camera gimmick that seemed so popular a few years ago, and instead goes a more traditional blocking and stage route. As for the release, it was hard enough to sneak a film through production in 2008, and that was before there were smartphones everywhere. The internet has made filming in secrecy much more difficult, so the fact that no one knew about this until the Super Bowl ad aired, is a feat onto itself.
I’m a fangirl and while this is not news, I just felt like I should lead with that because the A.C.O.D. trailer is what this fangirl’s dreams are made of. Adam Scott, Amy Poehler, Catherine O’Hara, Jane Lynch, Adam Pally, Richard Jenkins, Clark Duke, and even Ken Howard… when your cast makes someone think, “oh, yea Jessica Alba as well“, then you know things are in a good place.
Go ahead and enjoy the A.C.O.D. trailer below.
Please, please, please, don’t let this be a case of good trailer ending up being a crappy movie. That would be most unfortunate.
This is director Stu Zicherman’s first film behind the camera, but he was an executive producer on one of my favorite “canceled too soon” shows, Lights Out. Zicherman was also the writer of Jennifer Garner’s Elektra, but let’s try to not hold that against him.
One does have to wonder if going with an acronym for a title was a great idea. Acronyms haven’t done well historically, and even more recently the incredibly poor performing R.I.P.D.. Here’s hoping that A.C.O.D. doesn’t fall victim to its own horrible title.
A.C.O.D. opens in theaters on October 4th.
So it was just a couple weeks ago that we got the first teaser for A Good Day to Die Hard – And I loved it. The Christmas music and the 007 comparisons – classic. Well, now we’ve got a bit more. As you’re about to see John is in Russia, presumably looking for his son. We get some Lucy, who figures to be little more than a cameo, but at least she’s there.
Anyhow, have a look…
