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.
WARNING: The trailer above contains NSFW material.
Here’s our first official look at the much-anticipated first-person action movie Hardcore from director Ilya Naishuller, who you may remember was the man responsible behind the outrageous first-person short film Bad Motherfucker, which became a viral sensation.
Now Naishuller is back with a full length movie which is being funded by Indiegogo. The plot for Hardcore rattles along like so:
You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg. Five minutes later, your wife has been kidnapped and you should probably go get her back. Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky), he’s just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He might be on your side. Good luck Henry. You’re very much likely to need it.
No word yet on when we can expect to see Hardcore in British cinemas.
Ever since it was first announced I have been feverishly anticipating Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s The Revenant, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy and judging by the fascinating trailer above, which features some jaw dropping cinematography, my high expectations for this film may have been met.
The plot for The Revenant rattles along like so:
Deep in the uncharted American wilderness, hunter Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is severely injured and left for dead by a traitorous member of his team, John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). With sheer will as his only weapon, Glass must navigate a hostile environment, a brutal winter, and warring Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald.
Since this trailer was released last week reports have leaked online that the film is $40m over budget and although it’s release date is December 25th, Iñárritu is yet to film the end of the movie.
Above is the first official trailer for the movie Goosebumps directed by Rob Letterman, (Shark Tale, Monsters v Aliens) and stars Jack Black and is based on the best-selling series of kids books of the same name.
The plot for Goosebumps rattles along like so:
Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine, the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
It looks like a delicious mix of Joe Dante’s Gremlins, The Monster Squad and Jumanji. Goosebumps is scheduled for release on October 16th.
Unless you live under a wasteland rock, feeding off of two headed desert lizards then you’ll know just how much praise is being heaped upon George Miller’s fourth Mad Max film Fury Road and for good reason.
Even if you’ve yet to watch this action movie masterpiece you can still wonder at the concept art for the project, samples of which have been released ahead of the launch of the official book of Fury Road concept art, which you can buy here.
Apparently 2000 AD comics artist Brendan McCarthy had that much of influence on the project through his art he landed co-writing credit on Fury Road.
Here’s the first official trailer for Vacation, a reboot of the original comedy classic National Lampoon’s Vacation which starred Chevy Chase back in 1983.
The plot of Vacation rattles along like so:
Following in the footsteps of his father Clark and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s favorite family fun park: Walley World, as it will be closing forever.
Vacation is scheduled for release on July 29th.
Her’s the official trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new movie Maggie.
It’s an independent feature with a budget of just $8m and tells the story of a mid-western farmer and father protecting his beloved daughter, who is slowly turning into a cannabalistic zombie after a virus infects the world’s population.
From the trailer above it looks like Arnie is exercising his acting chops for once in a low-key performance, much like Stallone in Copland.
Maggie is set for general release on May 8th.
