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’s movie goodies include posters, trailers, and stills for a few upcoming flicks, a comparison of two interpretations of the same character, a parody scene, and more!

Watchmen – Trailer

Last year, Zack Snyder stepped up to the plate and delivered an electrifying film in 300; like it or not the movie was awesome. This was after he made me a believer with his surprisingly good remake of Dawn of the Dead. Now he has tackled another Frank Miller creation in Watchmen, a superhero tale to end all tales. The trailer looks spectacular. This looks like it could redefine the genre. Of course, it is a trailer and much has yet to be seen to know if the movie is any good, but this looks promising.

The Spirit – Trailer

The full trailer is here, and it looks spectacular. While Zack Snyder is busy adapting his second Frank Miller creation for the screen (Watchmen), Frank Miller is trying his hand at directing. He was credited as co-director with Robert Rodriguez on Sin City, now steps out on his own to direct a feature film adapted from one of his idol’s creations. Will Eisner’s The Spirit is coming to the screen in an impressively visual style that takes the look of Sin City to the next level.

Blindness – Poster, Trailer

I am really looking forward to this film. It seems to bear a passing resemblance to The Happening, but feels distinctly different. It is from director Fernando Merielles who has also helmed the excellent The Constant Gardener and City of God. This film stars Julianne Moore as a woman in a world where nearly the entire world is stricken by blindness. Sounds creepy!

Babylon AD – Trailer

Here is a movie that has had a few roadblocks on its way to the big screen. It is a big budget science fiction/action film that seems to be being advertised as an afterthought. There have been problems during the production (specifically, I do not know) and a cut by the studio primarily to remove ten minutes and nothing more. That said, the trailer does look interesting with its Blade Runner seasoning. Vin Diesel stars along with Michelle Yeoh. Matthieu Kassvitz returns to the director’s chair for the first time since 2003’s Gothika.

Titan A.E. – Full Movie

This could prove to be an interesting experiment. It appears that Hulu is offering embeddable code for shows, clips, and movies that appear on the site. Of course, the video will be much smaller than you can get on the site, but I find it to be an intriguing offering. So, desiring to try it out, the first movie that caught my eye was Titan A.E., a movie that is quite underrated. So, here it is; you can watch it in its entirety. Let me know what you think and I will explore the site some more for interesting embeddables.

Terminator Salvation – Trailer, Still

A new trilogy of Terminator films is on the horizon. I only hope they are good. This time out neither James Cameron nor Arnold Schwarzenegger are involved. McG is at the helm and Christian Bale is the star; half of that sounds great while the other half worries me. I must say, though, this trailer looks pretty good, I like the cutting to the classic theme. There has also been a still released.

Batman: The Dark Knight – Joker vs. Joker

Came across this nice little mash up. It is a combination of footage from The Dark Knight and from Tim Burton’s Batman. It takes Joker footage, featuring both Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson. Regardless of which you prefer, this is a nice edit of the two.

The Dark Knight – Interrogation Parody

Well, you had to know that these were coming:

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor – Poster, Stills

The third go around for the Mummy franchise (excluding The Scorpion King, of course) is getting set to go. To help everyone get ready, they have flooded the web with production stills. Now, how good would I be if I did not share them? (Don’t answer that.)
