Welcome back to the Movie Media column, featuring trailers, posters, and clips for upcoming films. Some are nice and fresh and some aren’t. However, they all have something in common: for better or worse, they all caught my attention. If there is a poster or trailer you think I should check out, be sure to let me know.
This week had so many movie goodies they had to be split into two parts, so as not to overwhelm you. This pass include posters, trailers, and stills for some feature films! Hopefully, you enjoy taking a gander!
Saw V – Revised Teaser Trailer
Lionsgate has released a revised trailer for the film, due in theaters on October 24, 2008. This new version contains a new musical cue.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince – Stills, Teaser Trailer
More stills for next Harry Potter film have been released. I have to say that I like the darkness that is exhibited in the trailer. This is the first time in a long time that I have been anxious for a Potter film, and this is the one they move. Yes, its release has been moved. Despite the teaser saying November, it has been pushed back to next summer, presumably to help fill a gap left by the writers’ strike.
Watchmen – Stills
It’s not coming until next year, but more stills have emerged from Zack Snyder’s Watchmen camp. The more I see, the more excited I get. This film could be brilliant. I really hope that is, as I really want to like it. Below are a few more production stills.
Sex Drive – Poster, Trailer
This looks utterly ridiculous. It also looks like something I’ve seen before. I do admit to liking the touch of the floating instant messenger boxes — it’s kind of neat, as well as the gag with the donut costume. James Marsden looks a little out of place, but at least it looks like a different role for him. The best bit in the trailer has to be the appearance of Seth Green.
Babylon AD – Blockbuster Spoof
I recently had this clip recommended to me. I gave it a look and found it pretty funny. It takes the trailer for the new Vin Diesel movie and uses it to spoof a number of blockbusters that have come out this summer. What’s the point? I have no idea, but it made me laugh.
Body of Lies – Trailer
This film is coming to theaters this October and it looks pretty good. It features the war on terror, double crossing agents, and plenty of explosive action. It does not hurt that the lead roles are filled by Leonardo Dicaprio and Russell Crowe, nor does it hurt that Ridley Scott is at the helm.
High School Musical 3: Senior Year – Trailer
Wow. What else is there to say? I watch this trailer (my first experience with the HSM phenomenon) and I have to wonder why people like it. That is rhetorical, I don’t care that much. If you like it, I am happy for you, I just don’t get it. The singing doesn’t strike me as anything special, and those lyrics, ugh. Anyway, here’s the trailer for the entry that brings the series to the big screen.
