Insane EVIL DEAD Red-Band Trailer is Aliiiiiive!

You’ve been patiently waiting for it, now here it is… the insanely terrifying red-band trailer to the Evil Dead remake! This is the same trailer we were shown at NYCC.

The movie was directed by Fede Alverez and produced by Sam Raimi andBruce Campbell, both of which full heartedly approve of this nightmarishly awesome looking horror film. It stars Jane LevyShiloh FernandezLou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore.

In the remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

Evil Dead hits theaters on April 12th! Watch the trailer and let us know what you think! Does this sell you on the remake?

Incredible David Fincher Produced HALO 4 Live-Action Trailer

David Fincher is one of my favorite filmmakers working today, and when I saw he produced this intense live-action Halo 4 trailer I was blown away! The short was directed by Tim Miller, but you can definitely see Fincher’s influence. This is not only a great trailer but an incredible example of how amazing a Halo movie could be! I seriously believe this is the best live-action trailer/short we’ve seen from the Halo franchise to date.

Master Chief’s mind is violated by a powerful new enemy, who in searching for Chief’s weaknesses, finds the source of his strength.

It gives us a little background story on Master Chief, and you also get to see him kick some ass! No joke, this thing gave me goosebumps! This is the team that should bring Halo to life on the big screen! Watch the video below and tell us what you think!

Insanely Badass Trailer for the Martial Arts Film DRAGON

Anyone want to see Donnie Yen (IP Man) kick some major ass?! Of course you do! Here’s the trailer for an incredible looking martial arts film called Dragon. The movie looks so freakin’ good, and the trailer shows off some amazing fight sequences! I’m really pumped up for this movie, and excited as hell to get to see it when it’s released!

Here’s the Synopsis:

Liu Jin-xi (Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store. When Liu single-handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai-jiu (Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu’s martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region’s vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero–and draws the attention of China’s criminal underworld in the process.

The movie is set to hit VOD on October 26th, and then hits theaters on November 30th. So for anyone who enjoys a good martial arts movie this one looks like it’s worth checking out!

‘Carrie’ Teaser Trailer: Burn, Bullies, Burn!

MGM and Screen Gems just debuted footage from Kimberly Peirce‘s new film version of Stephen King‘s debut novel Carrie at the New York Comic Con over this past weekend, but isn’t wasting any time getting something online. While fans often have to wait months (or more) before seeing trailers that play at the San Diego Comic Con, a teaser trailer for Carrie is now online.

The trailer cuts right to the chase, too, with a slow flight in to the burning hell unleashed by Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz) after her first high school prom experience goes, er, badly.

Not bad, but not much to chew on there. We only get that brief look at Moretz in her traumatized state, and really, it’ll be all her work in the rest of the movie — along with that of Julienne Moore as her repressive mom — that will be important. Nice teaser, though.

Carrie opens on March 15. Yahoo Canada has the trailer.

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie.  Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society.  Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.

‘Die Hard 5′ Trailer: 007 From New Jersey

‘Die Hard 5′ (‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ if you must) introduced itself to the world with the first image from the movie and today we get the first ‘Die Hard 5′ trailer. Yup, John McClane is back.

We’d love to dog on this trailer but you know what? It works. Maybe it’s the classic ‘Ode to Joy’ set to a bunch of explosions and gunfire or maybe it’s the sexy Russian lady unzipping her leather getup, but this ‘Die Hard 5′ trailer works. It’s a teaser trailer (and doesn’t even mention the fact that McClane now has a son) but if it’s only job is to get people excited for a ‘Die Hard’ movie after the disappointing ‘Live Free or Die Hard,’ mission accomplished.

Of course, one of the criticisms lobbed against the last film was that the film wasn’t so much a ‘Die Hard’ film as it was a generic Bruce Willis action movie and nothing in this trailer will diffuse that criticism. It’s a lot of generic bad guys and Bruce Willis with a gun and slick action sequences. It’s certainly a long way from Nakatomi Plaza. (But Bruce Willis does get in a classic McClane zinger at the end that sort of addresses some of those comments.)

But even if it’s not a great ‘Die Hard’ film, it looks like a perfectly enjoyable action movie and a long way from Len Wiseman, which is a very good thing.

‘Broken City’ Trailer: Russell Crowe Strongarms Mark Wahlberg

What does a high-wattage star cast and a high-concept thriller premise do for you?Broken City, from Allen Hughes (one half of the Hughes Brothers) features Mark Wahlberg as a disgraced/retired cop hired by the NYC mayor (Russell Crowe) to find the man sleeping with the mayor’s wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones). When Wahlberg is successful at this task, he is drawn into a dangerous situation in which the mayor holds evidence of his past against him.

This first trailer for the film makes Broken City look like a pretty standard thriller that works just to leverage our knowledge of the cast. That said, all three of the leads look like they’re fully committed, and Crowe is a natural for this sort of heavy-handed politician. Does the script (by Brian Tucker) go deeper into ideas about what was done to clean up New York City in the Giuliani years, or does it just sit on the surface for thrills? Probably the former, but we’ll see what happens in January.

Badass Trailer for Jason Statham’s New Film PARKER

FilmDistrict has released a badass trailer for Jason Statham‘s new action crime-thriller Parker. The movie is based on the series of bestselling novels by Donald E. Westlake, and it looks like it’s going to be extremely entertaining. The movie comes from Ray director Taylor Hackford, and also includes a great cast of actors that includes Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce, Nick Nolte and Jennifer Lopez.

Here’s the Synopsis:

Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to PalmBeach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.

The movie will be released on January 25th, 2013! I’m excited about this movie! Of course I get excited about most Jason Statham movies. Check out the trailer and let us know what your favorite Statham movie is.

Trailer for the Seth Rogen Road Trip Comedy THE GUILT TRIP

Seth Rogen has teamed up with Barbara Streisand for a new comedy called The Guilt Trip. The movie comes from The Proposal director Anne Fletcher, and it follows a mother and son as they embark on a road trip. The film also stars Adam Scott, Danny Pudi, Colin Hanks and Yvonne Strahovski. The movie looks like it has some funny moments, but I think I’ll wait for it to come out on Blu-ray or something.

Here’s the Synopsis:

Andy Brewster is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime, and who better to accompany him than his overbearing mother Joyce. After deciding to start his adventure with a quick visit at mom’s, Andy is guilted into bringing her along for the ride. Across 3,000 miles of ever-changing landscape, he is constantly aggravated by her antics, but over time he comes to realize that their lives have more in common than he originally thought. His mother’s advice might end up being exactly what he needs.

The movie will be released in theaters on December 25th. Does this look like a film you’d want to see on the big screen during the holiday season?
