The long-awaited “Spring Breakers” trailer has hit the web, and nothing I say could even come close to doing it justice. Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine star in Harmony Korine’s latest vehicle as four bored college students who will do anything to go ham on spring break, and you can count on them looking nothing like they did at the premiere (above). A RiFF RaFF-channeling James Franco sports cornrows as rapper/drug dealer Alien, and I have no idea who Gucci Mane plays but he is most definitely in this movie. I think it looks rad — much better than expected, actually — and I can’t wait to see squeaky-clean Selena get her sleaze on. Ch-ch-check it out. Y’all wanna die tonight? [MTV] Keep reading »
Everyone else is as sick of the “Twilight” movies as I am, right? We’re just ready for this long national nightmare to be over. A second “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ trailer debuted last night at the MTV VMAs, revealing how the budget for creepy contact lenses in this second movie was through the roof. And it’s weird to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart onscreen together after this summer of discontent. It’s going to be a long, uncomfortable autumn of movie promotion and frankly I’d love to put that behind us as well.
Oh, no, “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” trailer is actually making me miss high school. (Horrible feeling. Don’t go there! Stop that!) Logan Lerman is cheek-pinchingly adorable as Charlie, the wallflower in question; Emma Watson and Amelia’s barely-legal boyfriend Ezra Miller are his misfit pals, Sam and Patrick. Paul Rudd co-stars as an English teacher who is hotter than should be allowed. The movie’s out September 14th, which gives you plenty of time to read the amazing book on which it is based, written by Stephen Chbosky. If you can handle the teen angst, that is. [MTV]
Fledgling filmmaker Benh Zeitlen’s new film “Beasts of the Southern Wild” garnered tons of acclaim at the recent Sundance Film Festival and was an official selection at Cannes. Even so, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that it’ll be a compelling, watchable film. But the first trailer, featuring breakout child star Quvenzhane Wallace, makes it look pretty damn good. The film follows Wallace as Hushpuppy on an odyssey to survive a Katrina-like storm, ward off mystical “auroch” creatures, and find his missing mother.
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 Anne Hathaway) is played by a dog. [Comic Book Movie]
