Tamara Drewe HD480p 41MB HD720p 106MB
Pleasantly restrained US trailer version for the latest movie from Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen, Dangerous Liaisons), a (sort of romantic) comedy based on a comic-strip. It's about a young woman (Gemma Arterton), once a shy, ugly teenager, who has reinvented herself as a smouldering femme fatale. When she returns to her old village to sell her late mother's house, she is barely recognisable to the locals - or to her old flame Andy - and she kick-starts a trail of envy, lust, scandal and gossip wherever she goes. Also part of the cast are Dominic Cooper and Roger Allam.

First teaser for the latest movie from Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Sunshine, The Beach). It tells the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days he examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and
encounter an alien commander hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, he recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn, Kate Mara) he met before his accident.
Let's see how Boyle will make us care for this friendly hedonist.
The Housemaid - Hanyo 20 MB
English subtitled trailer for this interesting looking erotic revenge thriller from South Korea. An innocent young woman accepts a job working as a nanny and maid for a very wealthy family. The housewife who hires her is young and beautiful, but vulnerable in her pregnancy. Her mother has successfully married her off to a rich, powerful, cultivated man. It's not long before the maid attracts the attention of the husband. A working class woman still a little rough around the edges, she looks overwhelmed by the modernist mansion she now works in, but when he approaches her for a swift seduction, she turns out to be his match.
Fair Game HD480p 43MB HD720p 98MB
Political thriller that tells the story of the covert officer in the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts) who leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Her husband (Sean Penn) is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war, he writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and igniting a firestorm of controversy. Soon after, her covert status is reported by a high-profile Washington journalist. With her cover blown and her overseas contacts placed in mortal danger, Valerie is pushed to the breaking point as her career and private life collapse. Directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Go, Mr. & Mrs. Smith).
Case 39 HD480p 50MB HD720p 129MB
A new trailer for this long delayed horror thriller that will finally get a limited theatrical release in the US in October. A family services social worker (Renée Zellweger) who thinks she has seen it all until she meets her newest, most mysterious case, troubled 10-year old (Jodelle Ferland). Her worst fears are confirmed when the parents try to kill her. She saves her and decides to take her in herself until the right foster family comes along. Then the real horror begins. Also part of the cast are Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper, Callum Keith Rennie and Adrian Lester. Directed by Christian Alvart (Pandorum, Antibodies).
As you can imagine, the reason for the delay isn't because the movie's so good.

I can see the future!
Well, not really, but what are the odds on Fair Game turning up in a cheap double-DVD pack with Green Zone at some point?
Re: I can see the future!
Very well possible! Nothing But the Truth with Mrs. Beckinsale would be another option once Underworld 3-D comes out and people remember her again. ;)
Hedonism probably isn't the correct word. I was just looking for a way to express my slight annoyance. The way he's portrayed in the teaser is that he likes to take risks and having a good time. He likes crashing with his bike, enjoys going into free-fall between rocks as far away from civilisation as possible. So, to exaggerate a bit, facing death or measures like cutting off his own arm should come somewhat naturally for him and maybe are not really worth mentioning.
