With the release of the Last Airbender trailer during the Superbowl (The SuperBowl has something to do with American Football a game no non-american can ever understand, but the also have cool movie trailers and Janet Jackson Nip Slip so wholesome family entertainment for young and old),Â I have now been able to see snippets of the 3 movies that I am most looking forward to this year.
Here is a run down:
I still want to call this movie Avatar but I guess M.Night had to change the name to The Last Airbender after James Cameron achieving cinematic history. I’m probably one of the last Shyamalan apologists left after The Happening and Lady in the Water but I still look forward to his movies. He’s always had an amazing eye for visuals and drama and he is so very talented. And now since he’s adapting one of my favorite animated saga’s (Close second to Knights of the Zodiac and Dragonball) I am waving my little Shyamalan Flag.
I hope he get’s to make all 3 chapters of the movie like the animated show but he will have to battle the onslaught of geek hate and prove the detractors of his last few flicks. Plus he made Unbreakable which is one of the best superhero movies ever made…
Here is the full trailer
Early reviews are appearing on the interweb and it seems that this is going to be a triple whammy for Stallone after Rocky Balboa and Rambo. It’s the perfect timing for these kind of re-imagined 80’s action thriller and Sly is able to tap into those feelings of nostalgia of 20-30 year old who grew up with that RamboII poster where he’s holding a Rocket Launcher. Personally the more control Stallone has the more be it directing or writing, the more I seem to enjoy his movies.
The cast is for this movie is a once in a life time experience and we can keep bitching about Jean Claude Van Damme, Jackie Chan or Steven Seagal not being part… but where is the Michael Dudikoff fan club? Shouldn’t he be included too??
This is probably not the official trailer but it hits the sweet spot. The Expendables has a planned release date for August.
I have no clue what this movie is about or what this trailer means but I just need one name to go from a Pas de BoureeÂ followed by a Grand Jetee and that nameÂ is Christopher Nolan. To me he is one of the most exciting director since Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson. He’s had a perfect record (ok, maybe Insomnia I liked a little bit less but Pacino made up for it by being Pacino and Robin Williams was very creepy but not One Hour Photo creepy which is the perfect level of creepiness).
I’m not a fan of Leo but with Nolan behind the camera, I know I dont need to worry. and the trailer is freaking amazing!
The A Team
Iron Man 2
There are a few more movies coming out that excite me but the trailer of those are not out yet. ( eg Black Swan, Looper, Tron Legacy)
