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).
There are some amazingly creative films coming out of Scandinavia recently. This month alone we had a sneak peak at Finnish film Rare Exports, a very twisted take on the story of Father Christmas and now this trailer for Trolljegeren, aka The Troll Hunter. Apparently it tells the story of a group of documentary film makers trying to track down elusive trolls in Norway which are rumoured to be living in large reserves owned by the government in the north of the country. In true mockumentary, shaky, hand-held style they get more than they bargained for. The Troll Hunter is released in Norway in October but no word when it’s released here in the UK.
Here’s a teaser trailer for a movie called I Am Number Four, directed by DJ Caruso whose previous works have included Disturbia and Eagle Eye and he’s slated to direct the film version of the popular sci-fi survival horror console game Dead Space. Starring ex-teenage Burberry model Alex Pettyfer the film tells the story of refugee John Smith, (scriptwriters pushed the boat out there), who is one of nine gifted children who along with their individual gaurdians have escaped their home planet of Lorien for earth. But here they are hunted and killed by their enemies in numeric order and three have already been exterminated.
