All The Lovely Looks From “The Great Gatsby” Trailer

So, I have mixed feelings about the trailer for Baz Luhrman's upcoming adaptation of "The Great Gatsby." On the one hand, Leo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan in period costumes retelling one of the greatest suppressed love stories ever. On the other, why does Luhrman alway…

Watch The “Rock Of Ages” Trailer

I saw "Rock Of Ages" when it was a tiny Off Broadway show. And then I saw it (a few times) in its bigger Broadway incarnation. I can safely say it was one of the most thoroughly entertaining musicals of all time. And by gosh, now it's a huge Hollywood movie starring Tom Cruise a…

Piranha Beach Blanket Bingo: The “Piranha 3DD” Trailer

Look, you could choose to get really upset about the rampant objectification of women and flagrant misogyny in a movie like "Piranha 3DD." Or, you could realize that this is a film starring David Hasselhoff and Ving Rhames -- and that the latter sports a pair of prosthetic gun legs throughout. Do you really want…

“Friends With Kids”: An Ensemble Cast Movie That Does Not Look God Awful

First Look: Wes Anderson’s New Flick “Moonrise Kingdom”

We couldn't be more excited about the new Wes Anderson movie, "Moonrise Kingdom," about a boy and girl who run away from home together. The cast includes Anderson mainstays Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, along with Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Bruce Willis. But why I'm really, really excited? My friend…

No, Seriously, There Is A New Movie About An ATM

I've gotten really annoyed with the recent spate of movie remakes. Do we really need to see Channing Tatum in a reboot of "21 Jump Street"? Probably not. But then I watch previews for actually new original movies -- like the trailer for this new flick called "ATM" -- and it makes me long for…

“The Dark Knight Rises,” The Cat-ified Version

Apparently, when most of us take off for the holidays to hang out with our families, the internet's cat population takes over. Witness this trailer for the new film "The Dark Knight: Rises" -- the latest in the Batman series -- as performed by cats. Ironically, incredibly, the role of Catwoman (as played in the actual movie by…

See Julianne Moore As Sarah Palin In “Game Change”

Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin gives Tina Fey a run for her money, huh? March can't come soon enough: That's when HBO Films will debut the movie version of "Game Change" based on a bestselling nonfiction book about the 2008 election. This trailer makes it look as if the book i…

“What to Expect When You’re Expecting” Looks … Underwhelming

Oh yes, there is another rom-com chock-full of celebs is heading our way. Watch the trailer for "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and pray, as I am, that it offers more than the few slapstick jokes and one-liners shown here. "What To Expect," slated to release in May 2012,  follows five  couples a…

“We Need To Talk About Kevin” = Foolproof Birth Control

No one in my book club is having children after last month's selection: We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. It's a novel about Eva, a successful travel guide writer who is ambivalent about getting pregnant and ends up giving birth to pure evil. No, it's not like "Rosemary's Baby" with a literally…

Angelina Jolie’s “In The Land Of Blood And Honey” Trailer Is Here

At long last, the trailer for Angelina Jolie's hella controversial directorial/screenwriting debut, "The Land of Blood and Honey," is here.  Cast with a slew of unknown actors, the film follows the impossible romance of a Serbian man and a Boznian woman during Bosnia's civil war (circa 1992-95). The two minute trailer…

My Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt Really Knows How To Ride A Bike

Riding a fixed gear (aka no brake) bike in the city is something of a point of pride for many too-cool-for-school city bicyclists. I personally think it's stupid and asking to die, but whatever. In any case, my famous boyfriend, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, plays a fixed-gear-riding bike messenger in the new movie "Premium Rush," running…

West Bev Love Extends All The Way To Prague

And I thought I was the biggest "90210" fan in the world. This trailer was spotted in a mostly abandoned amusement park in the Czech Republic. Greatest portrait of Donna Martin ever. [Flickr via The Daily What]…

Time To Get Giddy For “Mad Men” Season 4

I haven't been giving the upcoming premiere of "Mad Men" its necessary attention. With things like Eric and Sookie sex to worry about, you can understand why it's easy to get distracted. But now the teaser trailer for "Mad Men" season 4 has come around to remind me just how much I mi…

Good Dick Coming Soon

The trailer (NSFW language) for "Good Dick" -- the tale of a video store clerk who falls in love with a porn-renting female customer -- makes this movie look deeply awesome. The romantic comedy, which played at this year's Sundance Film Festival, was written and directed by and stars 27-year-old Marianna…
