Here’s the first full official trailer for the much anticipated Steven Spielberg movie
‘Merica: Fuck Yeah! Lincoln starring Daniel Day Lewis as the 16th President Of The United States.
It would probably be easier to name those who aren’t in this movie as the cast consists of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, Jared Harris, John Hawkes, Sally Field and David Strathairn among many others.
The plot for Lincoln rattles along like so:
As the Civil War nears its end, President Abraham Lincoln clashes with members of his cabinet over the issue of abolishing slavery.
I’m going to come right out with it and state that judging from the trailer this looks pretty boring. Sure if you love the craft of acting and get a special kick watching those like Day Lewis inhabit characters then I’m sure this movie will be like an exciting roller-coaster, but for the rest of us it just looks like a whole lot of talky, political shim-sham in poorly furnished rooms, peppered with distant contemplating stares off into yonder with a thoroughly distinct lack of boobies and not a single f**king vampire in sight. Poor show Mr Spielberg, poor show indeed.
We’re warming to the prospect of this film simply because we harbour fond memories of the original.
This is the second official trailer for Men In Black 3 and gives us a little more insight to the overall plot:
J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
The effects look great and the casting of Josh Brolin as a younger Tommy Lee Jones located in the 60s is inspired. Like Mad Men with lasers, count us in.
It’s been ten years since the last one but now Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith return as the Men In Black once more under the direction of Barry Sonnenfeld.
This movie has been plagued with problems, from Alec Baldwin dropping out due to scheduling issues to a bloated budget of $200M due to delays in production. Steven Spielberg resumes his executive producer role and a supplementary cast made up of Rip Torn, Jermaine Clement, (Flight Of The Conchords), Emma Thompson and Josh Brolin all can’t excuse the fact that former Pussycat Dolls front woman Nicole Scherzinger is Will Smith’s love interest. Really? Nicole Scherzinger?
The plot rattles around like so:
Agent J, (Smith), is bouncing around getting alien shit done with Agent K, (Jones), when KABLAMOO, Agent K mysteriously disappears. Next thing J is on the roof of the Chrysler building with some comic book nerd who gives him this fucking time machine watch and tells him to jump off the building and he’ll go back in time to 1969. J is like all ‘fuckdat shit’, but does it anyway and KABLAMOO, he finds himself back in 1969, Marty McFly style, right next to a younger, Don Draper looking K.
A budget of $200m and this is the best alien costume they could come up with?
