Avast! Official Trailer For The Big Short.

Here’s the trailer for the housing market crash movie The Big Short, directed by Adam Mckay, (Step Brothers, Anchorman) and stars a raft of talent including  Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.

The film is based upon the true story and best selling book, of the same name, by author Michael Lewis and tells the story of four outsiders who saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy. Their next move was then to bet against the banks after which the dark underbelly of the financial industry was fully exposed.

The Big Short is due for release this Christmas.

Avast! First Full Trailer For World War Z.

Here it is the first full trailer for Brad Pitt’s World War Z. The first part of this trailer features Glasgow and a quick glimpse of George Square. It appears to be far more action orientated than the original Max Brooks book and we know this because it has a  Hollywood klaxon blaring throughout.

Probably borrowed from Michael Bay.

Teaser Trailer For World War Z.

Here’s the teaser trailer for the much anticipated movie I am Legend Too World War Z, starring Brad Pitt and waves and waves of CGI zombies.

I was lucky enough to act as an extra on this movie when the cast and crew rolled into Glasgow town to shoot some scenes. It was the usual big, blockbuster Hollywood, spare no expense, effort and for me at least a once in a lifetime experience. Which makes me feel a little disappointed by what the teaser trailer has to offer especially as it bares no resemblance to the book.

However, I shall reserve judgement for the time being…or until Thursday when I watch the full official trailer.

Killing Them Softly Clip & Poster.

Brad Pitt’s lastest film Killing Them Softly now has an official poster, complete with current minimilst style and a short clip from the film itself.

Based on the book  Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins it tells the story of  Jackie Cogan, a gangland enforcer, who is hired by the Mob when a high-end card game, which was under their protection, is cleaned out by robbers.

Expect a general cast of low-life, desperate characters, fleshed out by none other than  Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins and Sam Shepard, who will stop at nothing to double-cross everyone in their path.

Sneaky Footage From The WWZ Set In Glasgow.

A friend of ours was lucky enough to bag himself a gig as an extra on the set of Brad Pitt’s new film World War Z, based on the best selling book by Max Brooks, while it was being shot in Glasgow.

He explained that a large Hollywood production with hundreds of extras, stuntmen, helicopters and zombies made for a very entertaining couple of days on set. But before he started work he had to sign a confidentiality agreement stating that he wouldn’t talk about the film online or take footage or pictures while on set and although he duly observed this rule to the letter it didn’t stop those people who worked in overlooking offices and apartments to capture the shoot on video as demonstrated above.

He also advised us to ignore all the fanboy chatter over the alleged plot changes from the book, he assured us that from the scenes he took part in and watched this movie will definitely be worth the wait.
