A new TV Spot for The Amazing Spider-Man, casting for 12 Years a Slave and Kick-Ass 2, a poster for Looper and a trailer for The House at the End of the Street.
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man‘s new TV spot is pretty long, clocking in at over 1 minute, and I have to say it’s not bad. The video doesn’t show an awful lot of new footage, but there is a sweet clip of Peter Parker doing some web-slinging, and there are tiny bits of footage here and there that look good. Honestly, the massive amount of TV spots for some movies these days has bored the crap out of me by recutting the same footage a million times in a row, but this one is alright.
12 Years a Slave
12 Years a Slave, the new film by Steve McQueen and starring his muse Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor, has now also cast Benedict Cumberbatch. Cumberbatch has come a long ways in recent years. He’s playing the villain in the next Star Trek film, he’s absolutely AMAZING as Sherlock Holmes on the BBC series Sherlock, and he’s got a cool name. Three for three. No word yet on his role in the film, which is a historical drama about a free black man in 1841 who is kidnapped and forced into slavery. That would suck.
Kick-Ass 2 is going to be shooting this fall, and it looks like pretty much the entire original cast of stars will be returning. Aaron Johnson, the star, is reportedly very close to finalizing his deal to reprise his star making role, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz are also said to be pretty close to signing. Oddly (for those who’ve seen the first film), Nicolas Cage is also supposed to be close to coming back. Huh. That’ll be… interesting.
I think the name “Looper” for a movie is a poor choice. If the film stinks, they can say it was a pooper. Or it left a bad taste in my mouth as if I’d eaten a pooper.
Something with pooper. Anyways, here’s a new poster for the time traveling poster and I don’t think it’s very cool. As far as posters go, it’s a pooper.
The House at the End of the Street
The House at the End of the Street is a scary place, if IT’S HAUNTED.
Or, in this case, there’s a serial killer stalking you there. Should’ve written that first line AFTER watching the trailer and being reminded of what this cookie cutter film is about. I should mention that if my sister killed my parents but as a result I got to bang Jennifer Lawrence, I might be okay with that.
