In A World… Lake Bell is Joined by All Star Cast in Directorial Debut

In a world filled with summer disappointments and tent-pole flops, Lake Bell’s In a World… looks like it could be really good. Recipient of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and nominated for Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Festival, In a World… has received praise critically and its thus far limited release has proved successful. Starring, written, and directed by the lovely Lake Bell (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy), the film is about a voice coach trying to break into movie trailer voice over work like her father.

Take a look at the In a World… trailer here…

Don’t Brick Yourself – The Lego Movie Trailer Is Here

I am a huge fan of Lego. It doesn’t matter what form – the bricks themselves, Lego board games, Lego video games, Lego keychain flashlight, Lego thumbdrive… I’m a fan of it all. So it should come as no surprise that when the Lego Movie was announced, I was beside myself with excitement. Now? Well now I’m so giddy I can barely type because The Lego Movie has a trailer and it is awesome!

If a Lego movie itself wasn’t awesome enough, the voices behind the characters are certainly a group that demands attention. Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Nick Offerman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, Allison Brie, Will Arnett, and a man who is having a pretty good run here lately, Chris Pratt as the main character Emmett.

My first reaction was “love the inclusion of the DC Comics characters” because unlike some people (pretty much every other GB staffer – I am alone on my Lego love island), I adore the Lego games especially the Batman versions. After watching the trailer a couple of times, the best part of this movie is the stop motion type of animation they’ve used that is, I’d imagine, an homage to the thousands of fan made videos through the years using stop motion. They could have easily gone with a “smoother” looking animation but it’s nice to see a nod to the Lego fans like that.

Sadly, we have awhile to wait as the movie isn’t set for release until 2014, but I’m sure there will be plenty more trailers and images put out before then and you best believe I’ll be at the ready waiting to bring them to you!

Aniston and Sudeikis team up for ‘We’re The Millers’ – Red Band Trailer

Jason Sudeikis may not have himself officially announced that he is leaving SNL (Jay Pharoah tweeted about his departure but it has since been taken down), but he is returning to the big screen with Jennifer Aniston in We’re the Millers. At first glance, it might seem like this is just a rip off of Robin Williams’ movie RV but one look at the trailer and you quickly realize, it is not.

Sometimes summer comedy movies can be rather hit or miss, but I think this might be a winner. It looks good from the green band trailer but, unsurprisingly, it looks amazing from the red band trailer.

I’ll go ahead and vocalize what everyone is thinking – Jennifer Aniston is hot! I don’t know if this is a new development or if I just haven’t noticed it before but damn.

We're the Millers

Of course Jennifer Aniston isn’t the only draw here. Nick Offerman married to Kathryn Hahn? That’s damn near as good a combination as Nick Offerman married to Megan Mullalley. Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Jennifer Aniston, and Jason Sudeikis in a swinging foursome? This is shaping up to be a great movie!

If my time enjoying Jason Sudeikis on the small screen is over, I rest easy knowing that he is still getting decent enough roles in Hollywood even if that means smuggling pot for Andy Bernard.

Trailer Roundup: Prof. X, Sinestro, and the Governor Made a Movie, Plus Hangover 3…

This is Grizzly Bomb’s Trailer Round for April the 12th in the year of 2013…

[tabgroup][tab title=”The Hangover Part III”]

When you saw the first Hangover film, did you think it would make a great trilogy?  Someone did.  So here it is.  The triumphant conclusion to the story that doesn’t appear to have an ending.  You know it will be good when it returns back to where the first film has already been.  Here we go again, again.

The Wolf Pack returns to Vegas on what appears to be a mission fulfilling the wishes of deceased father in law Sid Garner.  Or, at least, that is what I believe the plot to be.  The only thing confirmed from the trailer is that giraffe dismemberment is hilarious.

Director:  Todd Phillips

Stars:  Bradley Cooper, Melissa McCarthy, Zach Galifianakis, Jamie Chung, Justin Bartha, John Goodman, Heather Graham, Ken Jeong, and Ed Helms.

Release Date:  May 24, 2013

[/tab][tab title=”Welcome To The Punch”]

Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong) is an ex-criminal.  But like father, like son.  Go figure?  His son ends up in the hospital after a heist gone wrong, and Sternwood has to get him out.  So this should be the perfect opportunity for Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy) to put Sternwood behind bars for good.  Wait, no.  That would be too simple.They grab my interest when they attach the name Ridley Scott in the opening sequence.  Does this mean it will be a great film?  No.  It just means they have my attention.

Director: Eran Creevy

Stars: James McAvoy, David Morrissey, Mark Strong, Andrea Riseborough, Jason Flemyng, Peter Mullan, Johnny Harris, and Elyes Gabel.

Release Date:  March 15, 2013 UK

[/tab][tab title=”Somebody Up There Likes Me”]

This seems to be one of those dry indie comedies that I find difficult to relate to.  Though it is considered a comedy, it has evident dark tones.  That being the case, I wouldn’t expect our presented “protagonist” to advance or become any better by the films end.  Therefore, with no relatable characters, I would fail to have my usual cathartic experience.  This is often the case with dark comedies.

Why should you see it?  Well, heck.  It’s got Ron Swanson in it, now doesn’t it?  Not really, but Nick Offerman is in his typical form which I am sure is quite entertaining.  The more screen time he gets, the better this movie will be.

Director:  Bob Byington

Stars:  Nick Offerman, Keith Poulson, Jess Weixler, Stephanie Hunt, Marshall Bell, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Kevin Corrigan.

Release Date:  March 8, 2013

[/tab][tab title=”Stuck In Love”]

This seems like an endearing little piece with a large cast that I very much enjoy.  The trailer shows what appears to be a great representation of modern love in a divorced society.  Selfishness motivates most of our decisions, and because of it, we let things go that we shouldn’t, and we give up on things that deserve our attention.Sometimes, it’s tragic how dependable we can be on other human beings.  Love is the overpowering emotion that convinces us many times that the unreasonable is reasonable.  I know this description seems complex, but it is all invoked from this trailer.  So it seems like a pretty interesting movie.

Director:  Josh Boone

Stars:  Logan Lerman, Lily Collins, Jennifer Connelly, Kristen Bell, Stephen King, Greg Kinnear, Liana Liberato, Nat Wolff, Spencer Breslin, and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

Release Date:  June 14, 2013

[/tab][tab title=”White House Down”]

I feel like this movie will succeed.  Hear me out.  Everyone was a bit disappointed with the flat, explosion friendly Die Hard 5.  They felt a little bit better when Olympus Has Fallen came out.  They felt that their Die Hard void had been filled.  So people will enter into the summer movie madness remembering that they enjoyed a film where the White House was under attack from foreign invaders.

So enter White House Down.  It is very Red Dawn ish.  Which, I love.  It cannot be determined if the invaders are foreign or domestic, but judging upon the Lincoln quote, probably domestic.  It’s like Red Dawn meets Die Hard 4.

Director:  Roland Emmerich

Stars:  Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Jason Clarke, Joey King, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins, Rachelle Lefevre, and Jimmi Simpson.

Release Date:  June 28, 2013
