Trailers

It's taken four blog posts and most of a month to get here but here we are with the final installment of our preview of the Toronto After Dark film festival coming up August 14-21. Let's see what treats round out the already pretty stellar lineup.

There isn’t much to say about this one beyond the creator's description. All I can say is thank God for the internet and its ability to keep me away from doing actual work.

What if Ghostbusters, the movie, was shot in 1954 instead of 1984? Who should be part of the cast? Would they have the same equipment? Who would they battle? Considering Dan Aykroyd's concept owes a lot to Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, and Lewis and Martin comedies of the 40s and 50s, it is not that big of a stretch to speculate.

Has anyone read "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? Well, for rabid fans, or lovers of all things aquatic, there is now a followup, “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters”:

“Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets.

A longer trailer for the film adaptation of "Whiteout" was released at Comic-con. It starts out very similar to the teaser trailer Joe (the other one...) blogged aboutback in June, but it shows a lot more of the story (and has 100% more Kate Beckinsdale in the shower). Rucka and Lieber's timing and art style were so distinctive in the graphic novel that I was afraid something would be lost in the translation to film, but I'm not worried about it after seeing this trailer.

It seems like these days you can’t spit without hitting a horror film with Ron Perlman in it. Trust me I tried last night and as a result I am not longer allowed in the Fairview New Jersey Blockbuster. But on top of “Dark Country” being another Perlman flick it also stars and was directed by genre vet Thomas Jane (“The Mist” and “Dreamcatcher”).

A couple en route from Las Vegas are forced to deal with a body out in the desert making their honeymoon one hellish ride.

Of all the things that have come out of Comic-Con by far “Tron Legacy” is what I’m most excited about. Yes it’s still two years away and yes it will probably end up being awful but the trailer which was released this past weekend looks so freakin awesome I almost threw up on my keyboard.

Thanks to one Mr. Jon Schnaars the entire podcast team will be heading out to the theaters this weekend to watch “Orphan”. I have to say when I first saw the trailer before “Drag Me To Hell” this past May I groaned loud enough for the people in the next theater to hear me. But with the film's release coming today we’re seeing a lot of decent reviews popping up. Even the bad ones are saying the film is pretty entertaining.

Yesterday we got our first look at “Saw VI” thanks to a clip from the Lionsgate booth at Comic-Con. Well today we got a full on teaser trailer for your viewing pleasure.

The time is drawing near folks. The start of Showtime's "Dexter" is nearly upon us! Season 3 brought us a plethora of near misses and new hurdles for Dexter to jump, now he gets even more new problems to deal with. Namely? Fatherhood!

Below you will find the Season 4 trailer highlighting the fun that's in store. For myself as a fan, this season looks to be playing out pretty damn well. You'll find the introduction of new characters, new puzzles for Dexter to face and a whole lot more. And John Lithgow having sex. Yah, that happened.

So for the past month or so we’ve been seeing more and more images coming out for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland”. Well not we’ve got the first official teaser trailer for the film which is currently set for a March 5th, 2010 release.
