Jason Sudeikus and Jennifer Aniston were the best part in the mediocre Horrible Bosses, this time they are back directed by Rawson Marhsall Thurber, director of Dodgeball, which is one of my favorite comedies of recent years and the trailer looks pretty hilarious.
I don’t know who buys Jennifer Aniston as a stripper but as suburban mom who is helping out small time pot dealer, Jason Sudeikus, trying to haul a huge amount of weed for Ed Helms, she definitely convinces in a pair of khaki mommy pants.
Surrounded by a great cast consisting of Nick Offerman (Ron F*cking Swanson), Emma Roberts and Will Poulter who was great in Son Of Rambow.
This looks much better than a regular studio churned comedies of which we see so many lately. Let’s see if it manages to reach Dodgeball levels of epicness.
“David is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Having been jumped by a trio of gutter punks who steal his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to a drug lord. In order to wipe the slate clean, David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad’s latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbours including a cynical stripper, a wannabe customer and a tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen, he devises a fool proof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny campervan later, the “Millers” are on a roadtrip that is sure to end with a bang.”
Ladies and Gentleman, book the rest of your week! The Final chapter of Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy comes to an end summer next year. And it will remain the most anticipated movie of 2012 at least for most of Upodcast.
Having just seen Warrior where Dark Knight Rises main anti hero Bane, played by Tom Hardy has one of the two main leads, we have an inkling of the kind of powerhouse performance the actor can bring. For those who are aware of the comic book character, and not the Joel Schumacher version , Bane was the villain that broke Batman’s back.
Unlike the previously released teaser, the trailer mostly contains fresh images from the movie and as in the Dark Knight, Nolan has shot extensively with IMAX camera’s.
The trailer for comedic genius’ Sacha Baron Cohen follow up to the moderately succesfull Bruno has just been released and he seems to be back to his Borat roots playing a dictator of the fictionalized evil republic of Wadiya.
A bit of Ghadaffi, a bit of Uday Hussein sprinkled with some celebrity appearances and crude humour, just the kind of mix we love.
And any trailer that has “Beware of the Boys” from Jay-Z (the remix of Mundian to Bach Ke form Punjabi MC) as a background score can only be amazing!
In this forthcoming sci-fi thriller directed by Andrew Niccol and starrring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, in the future the time is money principle is taken a step further and money has been replaced by time as a measure of wealth. We stop aging at 25 and if you want to live you need to earn your every minute. The richest can live for ever, while the poor die young . Sounds like an interesting premise and Andrew Niccol goes back to the dystopian Sci-Fi world which he showed considerably vision for in Gattaca (1997). Check out the sizzel reel from Comic- con which is essentially an extented trailer and some of our thoughts below!
What’s really interesting to see here is Justin Timberlake taking on an action heavy role. JT’ is actually a pretty good actor and I don’t think he gets the credit he deserces. He’s been constantly looking out for challenging roles and he was pretty great in Alpha Dog and Black Snake Moan. And if anyone has seen Bad Teacher and the SNL’ shorts like Jizz in my pants and Dick in a Box, you know he’s pretty hilarious too. But here he is taking on Jason Bourne types of preportions and who knew before Matt Damon took on the that role that he would become one of the most reliable action stars around?
How freaky is that scene with the daugther and the mom?
The rest of the cast is pretty strong too with Amanda Seyfried (we like her), Olivia Wilde, Alex Pettyfer, Cillian Murphy and Matt Bomer ( Bruce from Chuck!) and except S1mOne, I dont feel Andrew Niccol has ever made a bad movie. If this even makes the type of money Limitless made this year, I am sure everyone will be happy.
Do you think JT can pull this off? Let us know in the comment section below!
The Trailer for Shahrukh Khan‘s Sci Fi extragavabonanza Ra.One directed by Anubah Sinha has just been released. He jumps, he flies, runs in leather bootsies, flips cars on Battersea Park Power Station, raises his arms slowly and romantically (i’m guessing here) and all this with funky spikey hair whilst Kareena Kapoor stares at him mouth agape as I’m sure the rest of SRK fan club will be. We have to admit this trailer leaves us severely underwhelmed. Check out our thoughts and the full trailer below.
Thanks to Honey for the exclusive of course. There really is no other blog for Bollywood gossip and exclusives. You Go GIRL!
So the extremely calculated marketing machinery Random Access One has been a rollercoaster ride of which we are only seeing the first bump.
It started with the Ra.One poster, then the 30 second teaser a couple of months ago (which was pretty exciting we have to admit) and then yesterday the first track from the soundtrack “Chammak Challho” got ‘leaked’ featuring Akon. which you can listen to on The Daily Honey too by clicking here (legitemately popilicous crack for your ears)
We will still have to live through for another half a year of Arjun Rampal‘s reveal, SRK getting back on twitter and every tweet being regurgitated on blogs and gossip sites, the song promo’s being on 24/7 rotation. Add to that some political hoopla of offending one people or the other (I am guessing the electricians this time) and SRK apologizing in a passive agressive manner.
Just show us the damn movie already , as we won’t be able to take months of Shahrukh’s marketing ‘wizardry’. In this case wizardry and deluge being a very fine line indeed.
We don’t know much about the story, we haven’t seen much of the the titular character, Shahrukh Khan’s character is named G.One (so we got a bit of Ghajini going on here) and he flies around a lot with his mouth tightly shut, probably worried he might swallow a bunch of insects. And is it me or does he just look extremely skinny and tired.
Most of the shots we see have a huge Endhiran hangover (a movie offered to SRK initially), Matrix’ s sound design), Spiderman’s urban setting and the final shot is pretty much T2 Judgement Day’s liquid T -1000 rehash but a quarter of a decade later. And I still think a lot of it is inspired by Infamous the Playstation game. Not to forget that Anubhav Sinha has not really ever made a decent movie ( Dus was half average and hasnt aged well). Also SRK doenst make good movies with people he doesn’t know well.
There is the heavy reliance of slow mo wire-fu, a completely played out technique and something Bollywood has never really mastered. The pairing of SRK and Kareena just doesn’t seem to gel with me. (Was Marjaani from Billu really that good ? And I see a little girl touching G.One’s face whilst they are spinning around in a car, an image that fills me with sappy dread)
The whole thing just smells of desperation and seems a bit “deja-has been” but you can never count out SRK expecially when his competitive edge has smelt blood like a starving shark.
The Bollywood media will of course be demanding Ra.One to be as big a hit as his other 2 Khan rivals ie Amir’s Ghajini and 3 Idiots and Salman’s Dabanng and the upcoming Ready.
So here is a list of what we don’t to see in the next trailers but I am guessing we will be seeing:
Some corny ass lines that are meant to be bad ass dialogues
In brightest day,Â in blackest night,Â No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power… Green Lantern‘s light! The trailer for the Green Lantern has just hit the net.
The superhero bug has bitten the entire world and the Indian film industry is no different.
Except for the ridiculous Govinda- Kimi KatkarÂ Indian Superman scene on YouTube, the first real superhero that I can remember was Amitabh Bachan in the awesome Shahenshah. I remember there was a 3 week waiting period in our Karachivideo rental store.
But I’ll let that memory back in the campy 80’s where it belongs.
We had the Hritik Roshan starrer Krrish which really wetted our appetite for a proper Bollywood superhero.(Good effort but doesn’t have originality or repeat value unless you actually think you can be Krrish when you grew up)
Shahrukh Khan, the supreme superstar of Bollywood (aka King Khan) is taking a swing on the genre with Ra.one a cutting edge mix up hi-tech and skin tight Lycra insanity. My worry is that Bollywood is making the first type of superhero moviesÂ as we saw back in the 70’s -80’s with a supreme good guy as a heroe with no human flaws whilst the audience has now grown up, moved on and prefers a moreÂ darker approach( more real?) eg The Dark Knight, The Watchmen and the forthcoming Kick Ass.
But in the meantime Disney have released the first images and trailer to Zokkomon, their foray into live action Bollywood production.
Their previous animated release was Roadside Romeo which to me it felt like an incoherent mish mash of deja-vu sequences with strained voice work of super couple said ali khan and Kareena kapoor. It was clear that the actors were not yet comfortable with the animated medium.
But now we have Zokkomon starring the revelation of Taare Zameen Par(masterpiece by Amir Khan about a child coming to terms with dyslexia- a strong recommendation from my end).
The costume design kinda reminds me of Red Mist in the kickass posters but to me that’s a minor detail and still I’m excited!
Red Mist-Kick Ass (I’m not crazy that i see a similarity right?)
