Some online video editor under the name of Gen I submitted a special montage of 270 movies, all released this year, to website Slashfilm.com. The video runs at just over six minutes and is an impressive piece of work, highlighting in our opinion the best and absolute worst of 2010, also serving as a reminder for those movies we haven’t yet watched, (eg: Inception, yes we are fully aware that this may be a court martial offence). For a complete list of the films featured and the music used chart a course for Slashfilm.
It’s hammer time! Here’s the latest trailer for Marvel’s newest superhero movie directed by Blighty’s very own Kenneth Branagh. Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Idris Elba, Natalie Portman and a whole host of others. The movie deals with Thor’s origin story and how his father Odin banishes him to earth from his home Asgard, where he then spends most of his time in a semi-naked state, falling in love with Natalie Portman whilst swinging around a big f@ck-off hammer. Sounds like the perfect life.
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.
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!
If you have a spare $50,000 down the back of your couch then you might be interested in investing in the self-sizing, self-drying jacket of the future, as featured in the 1989 Robert Zemeckis film Back To The Future Part II. Only one of these were made and was worn by Michael J Fox’s character Marty McFly in 2015, (not so far away now), cables were fitted to the inside of the jacket and operated by a special effects crew to get it to re-size and dry during filming. The jacket is currently available for sale at the website Profiles In History as part of a Hollywood Memorabilia auction.
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.
Movie giants Warner Bros are mulling over an idea which could see a full length feature film, (possibly all CGI), centred around the infamous Looney Tunes Acme Corporation, a company responsible for supplying Wile E. Coyote with all the crazy gadgets he has ever used in his, somewhat calamitous, attempts to snare The Roadrunner. Other outrageous products from Acme, (which stands for A Company which Makes Everything), have popped up in various other cartoons but our favourite here at HMS Friday is The ACME Batman Outfit: Guaranteed For The Life Of The User. If you want to know more about this story chart a course for Slashfilm.
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!
This short video of two skateboarders witnessing the crash landing of what appears to be some sort of space craft has all the hallmarks of a promotional viral video. It’s been doing the rounds across the Internet and has most people mystified, but we here at HMS Friday think we’ve cracked it. We believe it’s a viral video for the soon to be released film Attack The Block directed by comedian Joe Cornish, (he of Adam and Joe Show fame).
