Another full trailer for the cool looking life-action movie based on the graphic novel series by Mark Millar. After his estranged father gets murdered, a cube-dwelling, disengaged slacker (James McAvoy) gets recruited into a secret society of assassins who is headed by an enigmatic leader (Morgan Freeman). He gets trained by a woman (Angelina Jolie) who helps him to unlock his dormant powers. Also part of the cast are Terence Stamp, Thomas Kretschmann and Common. Directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch, Day Watch).
In case you haven't already seen it. They created this neat looking CGI-effect for showing the bended trajectory of a bullet. And they like it so much that they are determined to use it over and over and over again. The CGI-enhanced car movements also indicate that they are trying to achieve a comic-panel-like look which unfortunately hurts my brain. Thank goodness McAvoy and Jolie are better suited than Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson to save a movie.
Meet Bill 18 MB
Comedic drama about a man (Aaron Eckhart) who's reduced to a mere accessory to his family by working a dead end job at his father-in law's bank and arguing about his overindulgent love for chocolate with his wife (Elizabeth Banks) who is loathe to explain her "friendship" with the local news anchorman (Timothy Olyphant). But his fate begins to change when he becomes mentor to a self-assured boy who engineers his recovery with the help of a cute lingerie sales girl named Lucy (Jessica Alba, much more believable than "hockey team owner").
A review describes it as "entertaining yet entirely forgettable" which sounds about right.
Flight of the Red Balloon - Le Voyage du ballon rouge US 61MB UK 14MB
Poetic drama about a charming mother (Juliette Binoche) who's snowed under by the obligations for her two children she has to raise alone and her job. To help her, she takes in a young Taiwanese babysitter. On his way home from school one of the kids leads the babysitter through the streets and cafés of his neighbourhood. Soon the two share an imaginary world: a strange red balloon follows them, even in the exhibition space of the Musée d'Orsay.
Directed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien (Three Times, Café Lumière), Hippolyte Girardot is also part of the cast. Movie is a remake of an award-winning short film. You can choose between the US and the UK trailer version.
My Blueberry Nights US 21MB Japan 21MB
Finally, a first (short) US trailer for Wong Kar-wai's latest movie that is scheduled for a US release in April. It's a romantic movie about a young woman (Norah Jones) who takes a soul-searching journey across America to resolve her questions about love while encountering a series of offbeat characters along the way. Jude Law, David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman are also part of the cast.
And, for good measure, a longer trailer from Japan. More files can be found at this older entry.
I Am Legend Ending 32 MB
The alternative ending for the movie that was changed because of what I suspect were negative viewer reactions after test screenings. It will be part of the upcoming DVDs. File is obviously spoilerish since it includes parts of the theatrical ending.
I didn't have a major problem with the ending that was finally used because there are limits of what to expect from a major Hollywood blockbuster. While different, I'm not sure if this version is a major improvement.
