TV Spots for Die Hard, A Haunted House and Texas Chainsaw 3D, featurettes for Gangster Squad and Cirque Du Soleil, and casting for The Grand Budapest Hotel.
A Good Day to Die Hard has a new TV spot, and it shows the “007 of Plainfield, New Jersey.”
Yeah, I quoted that. Cause Bruce Willis actually said it. Holy shit, Bruce.
A Haunted House has a new TV spot that fully explains why I love Marlon Wayans. I don’t know that I should explain it to all of you with words, as the video does it for me.
Here’s a hint though: screaming.
Texas Chainsaw 3D has a new TV spot that reminds us to ring in the New Year with a chainsaw to the collarbone. You know what would be cool? If, at the end of the film, Leatherface took off his mask and sang, “I’m Singing in the Rain.” Then he takes a shit, a real one (no Hollywood hocus pocus) and gives us all the finger. That would be cool.
Gangster Squad has a new featurette that explains that the film escalates the gangster idea to a full on war. What’s really cool is the idea that the cops come back from the War (I assume it’s WWII) and they find their city has turned to shit, and they have to take it back. I like that angle. It makes the idea that they’re fighting a war on crime more believable.
Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Apart 3D is ready to blow your mind. This featurette does a great job of explaining that while they’re clearly doing things with this film that you wouldn’t get from a live performance, there’s still that live performance to enjoy, so they don’t hide the wires. What you see is, for the most part, real. They’re really pulling off all these feats of strength. Very cool.
The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s next film, has a confirmed cast. Or at least the main cast has been confirmed. It was thought for a time that Johnny Depp would be in the film, but he’s been out of the running for a while now. The Grand Budapest Hotel will include Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, and Mathieu Amalric.
That’s one hell of a cast. Bravo, sir.
