Here’s the latest trailer for the sixth season of True Blood.
The previous season of True Blood ended with Russell dead, Bill merging with Lillith, and all Hell breaking loose. Though a lot of viewers have complained about season 5, I enjoyed both watching and reviewing it. I look forward to doing the same for season 6.
I also look forward to Eric and Alcide. Yum!
Season 6 of True Blood premieres on Sunday, June 16th.
This film appears to be tailor-made for those film goers who want to sit through a left-wing version of Olympus Has Fallen. Whereas Olympus featured the White House being attacked by an international threat, White House Down features the White House being attacked by American insurgents.
White House Down was directed by one of my least favorite directors, Roland Emmerich. However, there’s also a chance that Channing Tatum might take his shirt off at some point during this film so I’ll probably end up seeing it.
Personally, I just hope the film starts with Derek Jacobi desperately jumping out of a cab and running into a theater so he can challenge everything we’ve ever believed about national security.
A second trailer for Iron Man 3 was released earlier today and watching it, all I can say is that it looks like maybe the film would be better titled Iron Men.
As for me, I’ve never read a comic book (with the exception of a few issues of Strangers in Paradise) but so far, I’ve loved each and every one of the Marvel super hero films. (And yes, that includes Iron Man 2.) I was looking forward to Iron Man 3 even before I saw this trailer and now, I’m even more excited about the film.
Seriously, you can’t go wrong with Robert Downey, Jr. acting like a self-absorbed narcissist with a glowing heart of gold. Nobody does it with as much charm and style as Downey.
When Jeff and I went to see The Last Exorcism, Part II earlier today, we also saw the trailer for the upcoming horror film The Conjuring. Even if the film itself looks like yet another attempt to rip-off Insidious, the trailer itself is still undeniably creepy. I’m not ashamed to admit that I jumped a little at that last clap.
It seems appropriate that, during the time of year that is devoted to horror, Fox Searchlight should release a trailer for an upcoming film that claims to tell the “true” story about the making of Psycho, one of the scariest and most influential horror movies ever made.
I have to admit that I’ve had my doubts about Hitchock ever since the project was first announced and, watching this trailer, I still have my doubts. While Helen Mirren looks to be as strong as always and Scarlett Johansson is an inspired choice to play Janet Leigh, I still have my doubts about Anthony Hopkins playing the role of Alfred Hitchcock.
From the evidence presented in this trailer, Hopkins’s interpretation of Hitchcock appears to be …. interesting, if nothing else.
Fox Searchlight, however, seems to have a lot of faith in Hitchcock as they’ve moved up the premiere date so that the film can premiere in November, at the start of Oscar season.
Nearly every film fan that I know is excited about the fact that the trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is going to be available for viewing today. Everyone, that is, but me. To me, Lincoln sounds like yet another big-budget, self-conscious prestige film that was primarily made to win awards (and considering just how weak this year has been so far, it may very well do that). Lincoln sounds like a film that people will respect but never actually enjoy.
Add to that, this is an election year and I know I’m not looking forward to having to listen to all the toadsuckers comparing their particular candidate to Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln. Seriously, it’s going to get tedious.
(That said, I seriously hope that I’m wrong because I’m a lover of both film and history. It’s not the film’s subject matter that concerns me as much as it’s the deafening hype that surrounds the film and demands that I love it before I even see it.)
As soon as the trailer for Lincoln is available on YouTube, either myself or another Shattered Lens will undoubtedly share it on this site. For now, however, I’m going to share another recently released trailer for another film about politics.
If Atlas Shrugged, Part 2 is anything like the first film in the trilogy, it’ll be the type of trashy, low-budget fun that always manages to annoy the usual gang of complacent critical elitists. If nothing else, it should be interesting to see just how overwrought the reaction (both pro and con) will be to this particular film.
