Trailer of the Week
The Master

The second trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master gives us a new look at what will undoubtedly be one of the best films of the year. Philip Seymour Hoffman, who has appeared in every Anderson film apart from There Will Be Blood, is simply one of the best, especially when he has a fat, juicy role to sink his teeth into. Lancaster Dodd is one of these roles: A "hopelessly inquisitive man" who gains a faithful following after World War II. The trailer shows a scene with Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix), who becomes his right hand, and gives us the first glimpse of Amy Adams, who plays Dodd's wife. Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood returned to score the film and he continues to carve out a signature path.

Wiig and Stiller

Kristen Wiig looked old, but Ben Stiller was unrecognizable while filming the Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The makeup guys on Prometheus could learn a thing or two from this transformation.

    A report over the weekend that a potential Twilight reboot is in the making at Lionsgate has been rebuffed by the studio. Deadline has the statement by Summit co-chairman Rob Friedman. Lionsgate, which purchased the Twilight production company, Summit Entertainment, back in January, is eyeing a huge payday with the November release of Breaking Dawn: Part II. With the franchise ending, however, there's been much speculation about a continuation of the franchise.

  • Jennifer Connelly is in talks for the female lead in Darren Aronofsky's Noah, which already has Russell Crowe attached as the title character. If she does sign on, it would mark a reunion for the two stars, who both garnered Oscar nominations (with Connelly winning) for A Beautiful Mind in 2002.


  • Slashfilm has some photos of Olivia Thirlby on the set of Dredd, the new Judge Dredd movie starring Karl Urban. The costumes look pretty good, but Dredd's helmet looks top heavy. Let's just hope this reboot is better than the Sylvester Stallone travesty from 1995. The trailer for Dredd hits the web on Thursday.

Waiting for Abe, new Dark Knight Rises trailer


(Annapurna Pictures, Indian Paintbrush)

  • After finally seeing some footage from The Master, I am growing more and more impatient! How long must we wait to see something substantial from Steven Spielberg's Lincoln? It was last November that the first and only good shots of Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th President appeared online. We're overdue for a trailer at this point so let this serve as a drum beat towards something, anything, from the year's most critically-anticipated film. And, no, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is not doing anything for me... although his axe/gun hybrid is pretty tight.
  • We did get the third full-length Dark Knight Rises trailer this week, however, so we've got that going for us. With the epic finale just around the corner (July 20th), the days can't pass quick enough.
  • Funnyordie.com put out a cool little video featuring Khaki Scouts checking out a screening of Moonrise Kingdom. The scouts are, of course, featured promintently in the film. Check it out below and see Jason Schwartzman box a kid's ears.
