It’s basically Quantum Leap meets Groundhog Day meets Agatha Christie. Jake Gyllenhaal plays some sort of military captain who can travel in time to relive the last eight minutes of a person’s life. Just so happens the person’s body he wakes up in is on board a train which will eventually blow up. So he has only eight minutes to find out who planted the bomb in a train which also happens to be populated by the most sinister and suspicious looking characters in movie history.
Here’s a first look at director Martin Campbell’s take on the super hero Green Lantern. It stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, a fighter pilot, who encounters an alien who passes Hal a special ring which grants him superpowers and a cheesy CGI super hero costume, with bulges in all the right places.
Look at the size of that boy's heed! It's like an orange on a toothpick.
Now watch the video below. A trailer edited together by an avid fan of The Green Lantern over a year ago with Nathan Fillion in the lead role with spliced together sequences from a host of films. Is it just us or is the tone of this trailer a hundred times better than that of Martin Campbell’s film? Don’t pretend you couldn’t really care because the day this world stops caring about men in tight fitting spandex is the day the world will stop spinning.
Amid the rising chorus of choir singers a character turns to Nicolas Cage and announces ‘we’re going to need a bigger boat more holy water’.Yes, Hellboy and Ghost Rider go back in time, like way back to when folks rode on horses and shit, to kick some evil witch ass! There’s something strangely appealing about this trailer and if Cage keeps his mugging down to a believable minimum then this film may be worth a watch. They should’ve called it Witch Bitch.
N.B. The Scott’s Porage Oats dude is in this film. What’s not to like about porridge. And it’s spelt Porridge by the way!
Sweet Jesus Cinnamon Tits! The trailer above for Zack Snyder’s latest film Sucker Punch, (he of 300 and Watchmen fame), should come with a health warning as it’s covered in so much delicious awesome sauce. The basic plot revolves around a young girl who is forced into a mental institution where she and four friends attempt to escape…through their imagination. That last part, about freeing your mind to truly escape, may be a bit of a sticking point but when your lead characters look like Halloween cos-play hotties and you have a huge-normous dragon and zombie Kaiser soldiers in your film who really gives a shit about a plot?

A hot chick, a reckless daredevil and a safety conscious wet blanket find themselves trapped in a huge underground cave. With only cheesy one liners to keep them company they must find a way out, back to the surface, before their mates piss off home for their tea and forget about them. It’s like the Poseidon Adventure but with more bad acting, sleeveless vests and hard hats…and it’s in 3D!
Here’s yet another trailer for Disney’s behemoth movie Tron Legacy but this time with music from Daft Punk who scored the soundtrack for the film. The money that has been spent making this movie is bordering on the obscene, but after watching the video above everyone here at HMS Friday simultaneously soiled our smalls. Hurry up December 17th.
Here’s the trailer for Liam’ Easter Island Head’ Nessons’ latest film Unknown. Apart from giving away what appears to be not just the entire plot but almost the entire film, the trailer once more teaches us two important lessons: 1) Mr Neeson really needs to stay away from Europe, (see Taken) and 2) Although he plays the part of a man who has forgotten everything he somehow still remembers how to inflict pain through a hybrid style of street kung-fu and knows how to expertly use a range of evasive driving techniques.
N.B. No matter how bad your head trauma was you would never forget nailing Don Draper’s wife. Fact!
