No this isn’t the HD officially released version, this is a leaked copy of the trailer filmed through somebody’s jacket, but even though it’s not the best quality I’m not sure I like the look of this remake, it seems far too serious for me. The original was peppered with some much needed light relief, courtesy of the genius facial contortionist Bruce Campbell. This just seems too evil deadpan…sorry.
Seth MacFarlane, the man responsible for Family Guy, has finally made a full length movie and it’s not all that far removed from his traditional animated antics.
Starring Mark ‘Marky’ Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, Ted tells the story of John Bennett, a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear, (voiced by Seth MacFarlane), who came to life as the result of a childhood wish and has refused to leave his side ever since.
As you can tell from the trailer it has the Family Guy humour stamped all over it except now there’s no restrictions on using bad language or censorship over sexually themed jokes.
Before Joss Whedon, the man behind Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse and Firefly, unleashes his vision of Marvel Comics The Avengers on us later next year there is the small matter of the release of his directorial debut movie Cabin In The Woods.
There has been a lot of buzz about this film over the Internet and rightly so as it looks, from the trailer at least, to be more than just your standard, vanilla flavoured hack n’ slash. Starring Chris Hemsworth Jesse Williams, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison and Fran Kranz it tells the story of five friends who embark upon a quiet, relaxing country break complete with cabin retreat but it’s not long before the group realise something is amiss and that the history surrounding their chosen holiday location is far more horrifying than they can possibly imagine.
Is it just us or has Whedon deliberately put together a Mystery Inc style team from the Scooby-Doo cartoons. Just look at Fran Kanz’s character again and tell us that’s not meant to be Shaggy.
Father of Lily Allen and well known actor and television presenter Keith has, in-between playing foul mouthed cockney gangsters, managed to make a documentary film about the conspiracy theory surrounding the death of Princess Diana, subtly entitled Unlawful Killing.
Can’t really see how this film won’t land Mr Allen in any sort of legal trouble at all, not one bit. The film’s official synopsis explains:
Keith Allen’s ground breaking documentary recreates key moments from the inquest and demonstrates how vital evidence of foul play was hidden from public scrutiny, how the Royal Family were exempted from giving evidence and how journalists, particularly those working for the BBC, systematically misreported the events and in particular, the verdict itself.
This is the story of how the world was deceived.
Not everyone is a fan of Keith Allen’s work and that’s not surprising considering his history which includes cherished moments like this one:
WARNING: Due to the significant cuteness overload throughout this trailer you may experience the following side effects:
A strange tightening of the throat. The need to swallow hard. The sudden formation of a film of water across both eyes and a fuzzy feeling across your teeth.

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.
