Pics from Django Unchained and Pacific Rim, videos from Resident Evil, The House at the End of the Street, Seven Psychopaths, Dredd and On the Road and a poster for Killing Them Softly.
Django Unchained has a new photo of star Jamie Foxx, and it’s not a bad pic so I’m going to study the crap out of it and give you the run down.
One glove. That means he’s a badass. Green shirt. Even more of a badass, but before you think this is all about badassness, he also has a conflicted look in his eyes. I think he just killed someone and doesn’t know how he feels about it. This moment, one that he has perhaps been looking forward to, is not what he thought it would be. Fortunately, he’s in the snow, which we all know makes these things all cool.
CAUSE SNOW IS COLD. Cool?
Pacific Rim will be featured in an upcoming issue (or ish as we cool people say) of Empire magazine. I know what you’re thinking, “When was the last time I put honey on my balls to wax them?”
I don’t know, but I do think these photos are really cool. I’m not 100% sure what to expect from Pacific Rim yet, but the images that have been released thus far are good. The film comes out next July, so expect to see big robots fight aliens then.
Resident Evil: Retribution
Resident Evil: Retribution has a couple new videos out today, one being a featurette on how they recreate Red Square, and the other are TV spots. Not a ton of new stuff, but it is quite funny to think they’re trying to get us to believe this film will be accurately portraying Russia.
Yeah. Uh huh.
The House at the End of the Street
The House at the End of the Street has a new film clip up today, and it’s super scary. But it’s not half so scary as it is super original. I mean, WOW. Original.
Both of those were sarcasm. This is stupid and I don’t like it.
Seven Psychopaths has a new red band trailer, and it’s pretty funny, and I can happily say it isn’t just the same trailer as the green band one, but with swears. There’s very different scenes and a different type of humor on display here that can only be displayed with vulgarity. I approve.
This new Dredd featurette is pretty cool. The more I see of this film, the more I want to see it. It’s badass. It’s violent. It has Olivia Thirlby. It’s cool. Lena Headey plays the villain Mama, and she looks scary and badass.
It’s just a cool looking film.
On the Road
On the Road confuses me. On the one hand, the book was really a big deal in its time, and has long been of interest to people. The trailers make it seem like they’re doing at least a decent job of adapting it. And I’ve heard you get to see Kristen Stewart’s cans. That should be fun.
On the other hand, I read the book and wasn’t impressed. This trailer is cool at least.
Killing Them Softly
Killing Them Softly has a new poster that I don’t fully get. There’s a very patriotic (likely sarcastic) feel to it, and from what I’ve seen the film doesn’t really have anything to do with America. It’s possible there’s some metaphor about the mob being America or something, but that’s just crazy.
Canada is more of a mob. A mob that prefers hockey and moose-tipping to pasta and Thompson machine guns, but nonetheless a mob.
Does anyone else NOT want to tell Brad Pitt that if he shoots with the shotgun held in that position it’ll probably recoil so hard it smashes into his face? I’m pretty sure you need a stock to hold the gun in front of your face when the recoil is that much.
But what do I know? I’m just a super genius with a heart of gold.
