FilmBuffOnline » Trailer http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress For The Complete Movie Fan Wed, 01 Oct 2014 16:47:26 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 First Trailer For Paul Thomas Anderson’s INHERENT VICE Brings Some Laughs http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/09/30/inherent-vice-trailer/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/09/30/inherent-vice-trailer/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 11:00:12 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=34900 InherentVice1

Now I’ll grant you that writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson and actor Joaquin Phoenix are not at the top of my list when it comes to movie comedies. I’m reasonably sure that until I saw this first trailer for their upcoming collaboration Inherent Vice, they were no near even being on that list. But the two-minute tease for the upcoming film certainly shows that the two have come together for a rather quirky adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel that has suddenly become one of my most anticipated films of the rest of the year.

Here’s the official studio synopsis of the film –

“Inherent Vice” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused – except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp – all Thomas Pynchon.

The film opens in limited release on December 12.

SDCC: Kevin Smith Premiers TUSK trailer http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/07/26/sdcc-kevin-smith-premiers-tusk-trailer/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/07/26/sdcc-kevin-smith-premiers-tusk-trailer/#comments Sat, 26 Jul 2014 10:50:33 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=34524 KevinSmith

Kevin Smith is known mainly for his string of indie comedies, but those who have seen his 2011 film Red State know that he has a largely untapped flair for horror and suspense. Smith has gone back to that well for Tusk, the story of a podcaster who has an interview turn horribly wrong on him, a story that started off as a discussion on one of Smith’s podcasts. The results, at least what we see below, are fairly impressive. Smith’s humor hasn’t completely deserted him for the film though. Take note of the shot of the two female Canadian convenient store clerks. The wall behind them is completely filled with just maple syrup and the store they work at is called “Eh 2 Zed.”

Tusk hits theaters September 19.

See The Unfinished THE DEATH OF ‘SUPERMAN LIVES': WHAT HAPPENED? Documentary Trailer http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/07/25/see-the-unfinished-the-death-of-superman-lives-what-happened-documentary-trailer/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/07/25/see-the-unfinished-the-death-of-superman-lives-what-happened-documentary-trailer/#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 17:17:34 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=34486 BurtonSupermanLivesWhat is it about San Diego Comic Con time and unfinished documentaries about unseen comic book films?

Last year, Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four was looking for backers around this time. Now, it’s a documentary about the failed attempt by Tim Burton and Nicolas Cage to bring Superman Lives to the screen.

The film is titled The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? and will be done by producer/director Jon Schnepp. Schnepp has created a trailer for the film, and we see immediately that he has already spoken to many of the players from that project, including Burton, initial screenwriter Kevin Smith, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, production designer Rick Heinrichs, screenwriter Wesley Strick, costume designer Colleen Atwood, special effects supervisor Steve Johnson, storyboard artist Tim Burgard, and associate producer Derek Frey, with comic book writer Grant Morrison interviewed to provide context.

Schepp also got his hands on more of the legendary test footage Nicolas Cage shot for the project, including a shot of him flying. There is also a lot of unseen production art on display.

Schnepp is trying to raise the final $85,000 he needs to complete post production on the documentary. Currently, he has $7,332 of that on a fundraiser on the Fan Backed website. And, as is typical with this sort of fundraiser, there are rewards attached to certain donation levels ranging from getting you name in the end credits for $25 to becoming a producer for $25,000 which entitles you to every other perk from every other tier plus busts of Nicolas Cage and Brainiac from the movie.

New Extended GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Trailer http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/07/08/new-extended-guardians-of-the-galaxy-trailer/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/07/08/new-extended-guardians-of-the-galaxy-trailer/#comments Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:25:07 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=34321 GuardiansoftheGalaxyLogo

James Gunn just finished work on the film yesterday, the film has not yet been rated, but since the release is less than a month away, we get a new extended trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy.

This trailer goes a little bit more into the motivation for the team, gives us a better look at Lee Pace as the villain Ronan, a quick glimpse of Michael Rooker as Yondu, all set to the Runaway’s “Cherry Bomb.”

I can’t say that I am entirely on board with the film as of yet, but I do see a lot of good things in the trailer. Let’s hope the good things outnumber the bad in the finished film.

Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1,2014.

International GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Trailer Shows A Film You Might Actually Want To See http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/06/17/international-guardians-of-the-galaxy-trailer-shows-a-film-you-might-actually-want-to-see/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/06/17/international-guardians-of-the-galaxy-trailer-shows-a-film-you-might-actually-want-to-see/#comments Tue, 17 Jun 2014 20:53:01 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=34088 GuardiansoftheGalaxyLogoHumor has always been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but always in measured doses and not in such a way that it takes away from the story. Guardians of the Galaxy appeared to change that trend, as every bit of promotional material they gave us seem to indicate that we’d be getting a film that more resembled Welcome Back, Kotter than The Avengers.

Thankfully, Marvel has released an international trailer for GotG, and this version seems more in line with their previous output:

Brendon Connolly over at Bleeding Cool thinks this trailer has a Firefly feel to it, which I can see.  And I also agree with him that this is a good thing.

I’m also tickled by there being more Rocket Raccoon in this version. It seems like Marvel realizes that Rocket is going to be the biggest thing to come out of this movie, and is playing that up.

KINGSMAN:THE SECRET SERVICE Trailer, Poster Hit The Internet http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/05/20/kingsmanthe-secret-service-trailer-poster-hit-the-internet/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/05/20/kingsmanthe-secret-service-trailer-poster-hit-the-internet/#comments Tue, 20 May 2014 23:31:54 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=33695 kingsman-duoWith the precision of a military raid run by a secret government organization, the producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service have made a multi-front attack today as the opening salvo in their promotion of the movie.

The film, originally titled simply The Secret Service, tell the tale of a young British street thug who is welcomed into a James Bond-ish spy network. It is based on a comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons and is brought to the screen by the same man who brought Millar’s Kick-Ass to the big screen, Matthew Vaughn.

Part one of the promotional blitz is the official trailer for the film, which you can see here:

Part two is an interview between the film’s star, Colin Firth, and Entertainment Weekly where the star gushes over the experience of working on the film. The interview comes with exclusive images from the fiolm:

kingsman-firth with gun kingsman-Michael Caine kingsman-firth stairs kingsman-sam jackson kingsman-firth suits kingsman-duoIt’s here where we catch a glimpse of cast members Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson. I love the fact that comic book adaptations are able to get two Oscar winners and an Oscar nominee in their casts.

And finally, we get a glimpse at the rather elegant teaser poster for the film:

kingsmanpostersmall

They came on strong and definitely have got my attention. I’m sure we’ll get even more promotion before the film opens on October 24, 2014.

Marvel Studios released a new trailer for their upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy film this afternoon, and it includes a few things that fans of the comic series felt were lacking in the first trailer. This time around we get to hear the voices of the aliens Groot and Rocket. We also get a better mix of the humorous and adventurous tones that director James Gunn may be shooting for. We also get a few new shots of the film’s villain Ronan the Accuser.

Here it is, via the film’s Facebook page –

The film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Peter Serafinowicz, Michael Rooker, and Glenn Close. It opens on August 1st.

Second DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Trailer Brings More Dramatic, Epic Feel http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/05/08/second-dawn-of-the-planet-of-the-apes-trailer-brings-more-dramatic-epic-feel/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/05/08/second-dawn-of-the-planet-of-the-apes-trailer-brings-more-dramatic-epic-feel/#comments Thu, 08 May 2014 23:49:49 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=33534 Dawnof thePlanetoftheApesLogo

The second full trailer for the upcoming Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes was released today. Well, actually two slightly different versions were released today – One for the US and one for international audiences. Both are below.

If you were impressed by the level of drama and serious storytelling that reboot Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes brought back to franchise back in 2011, it looks as if this latest installment will be upping the quotient this time. The trailers hint at some interesting themes that the movie could be exploring, which makes me more excited for the film’s July 11 release.

New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Clip Shows Us…Nothing New http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/04/08/new-guardians-of-the-galaxy-clip-shows-us-nothing-new/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/04/08/new-guardians-of-the-galaxy-clip-shows-us-nothing-new/#comments Tue, 08 Apr 2014 21:46:23 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=33250 GuardiansoftheGalaxyLogoI have to admit, I have serious reservations about Guardians of the Galaxy, and the latest exclusive footage released to MTV doesn’t quell these fears.

As part of MTV Movie Awards Takeover: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we were privy to a new GotG extended trailer(which is embedded below). What we got was essentially the trailer you already saw, but with the opening sequence of it expanded a little bit.

While MTV is trying to play the new footage up as being like Raiders of the Lost Ark (which others have parroted), outside of both protagonists stealing something off a pedestal, there isn’t much similarity between the two. The added footage gives us a look at Star-Lord’s boot rockets and mask (which were already on display during last year’s San Diego Comic Con), put on display during the character’s goofy escape from Korath (Djimon Hounsou). Then there is some footage of Star-Lord leaping across an alien landscape, then the rest of the trailer hits.

This is all well and good, but we still have no idea what the film is about. The GotG trailer ran before Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Joining it was the trailer for Lucy, the new Scarlett Johannson film which will arrive in theaters a week after GotG. That trailer told you enough about what was going on (ScarJo play an unwilling drug mule who gets superpowers when the experimental drug leaks into her system) that you can make a judgement about the film. The GotG trailer is basically exposition about the team members, a few random action scenes and explosions, and tells you nothing about the story. Is there a reason why Marvel is keeping it a secret?

Anyway, Guardians of the Galaxy opens up on August 1, 2014.

First Trailer For Michael Bay-Produced TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/03/27/first-trailer-for-michael-bay-produced-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/ http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/2014/03/27/first-trailer-for-michael-bay-produced-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/#comments Thu, 27 Mar 2014 17:01:39 +0000 http://www.filmbuffonline.com/FBOLNewsreel/wordpress/?p=33066 TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles

Paramount has released the first trailer for their new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and it has me scratching my head. ON one hand, it has all the dark, serious grittiness that producer Michael Bay wants to infuse his films with yet it does end with a comic beat that seems a bit incongruous with most of the preceding minute of footage. I am not exactly sure what audience Battle: LA director Jonathan Liebesman is striving to reach based on what we’re seeing here. Is it a more sophisticated take for older fans who grew up with the original Turtle movies/comics/cartoons from the 1980s and 1990s or is it for their children, a new generation of potential fans?

Hopefully we’ll find out more as it gets closer to the film’s August 8th premier.
