New Trailer out for Neighbors Starring Seth Rogen & Zac Efron!

What happens when a crazy fraternity moves in next door to a quiet little family??? Babies eat fake blue meth that’s what! Well, not exactly but that is a pretty damn funny scene from this new trailer for the movie Neighbors starring Seth Rogen & Zac Efron. I must say, this movie looks pretty damn funny. It reminds me very much of Old School in the sense that it might actually have a decent story and also some super hilarious antics along the way. I will admit that I can get a bit tired of Seth Rogan at times but this trailer looks like he will be a little more played down than some of his other roles, but no less funny. I don’t know what is more awesome, the fact that they throw a Robert De Niro look alike party, or the fact that Dave Franco’s impersonation of De Niro is spot on. Neighbors is set to open May 9th, 2014.


First Trailer for 22 JUMP STREET!

Its a good week for new movie trailers! But I don’t know if they get any better than this. 21 Jump Street was a pleasant return to some good ol’ laugh out loud comedy done right. Nobody ever expected the combination of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to work, it just seemed too damn odd. But, alas, the people we about as wrong as Paul is nerdy, the pairing of the two was comedic genius. But the bigger question was, if (when) they make the sequel, can the capture lightning in a bottle twice. Is that the expression? Sounds wrong… either way, you know what I mean.

Check out the trailer and let us know in the comments, but by the looks of this, I would say the lightning has definitely been re-bottled, again. This trailer is hilarious, the ending is especially awesome, and this trailer (and hopefully the movie), shows how you can stick true to a format but still keep it fresh for the sequels (sorry Hangover).


First Trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes!!!

Check it out, the apes are back now with 30% more face paint! Wanted to get this trailer up, its short but pretty sweet I think! I definitely like the fact that it takes place some time after the first, and not only has there been a war between the humans and the virus, but also among the humans themselves. Looks like the humans are seeking some sort of truce, but aint no Caesar got time for that!


First Trailer for MAN OF STEEL!!!

First off, in case you live under a rock, or you like Justin Bieber, you probably don’t know that Man of Steel is a moniker for Superman. So lets just go ahead and clear that up right away. Got it? Man Of Steel = Superman. OK? Check.

ANYWAYS… The first trailer is up for Man Of Steel, the new re-boot-imagining of the Superman franchise, directed by Zack Snyder, and produced by none other than the main man himself, Christopher Nolan, because… gritty. We saw a teaser trailer a couple weeks ago and I thought it looked freaking awesome. As much of a cliche it is these days, it really did seem like a “real” and “serious” telling of the Superman origin and story. The first trailer below gives us a bit more of a look into that world. And I don’t know why, but it brings down my expectations just slightly.

Maybe it is just because I am still pissed off that I wasted my time with that horrible Spiderman re-boot, but to me I kind of get the feeling (again) of “didn’t I just see this?” But other than that, the way they are presenting the film looks entirely different and I can get on board with that. The special effects look pretty bad ass, however if you listen to the show at all you know that I am not a huge proponent of mass quantities of CGI, so I really hope they don’t over do it (Suckerpunch I am looking at you), but they will. Guaranteed. Also, is it just me, or did the part where  Superman is shirtless and walking through fire look like horribly bad CGI? I’m talking like The Darkest Hour bad… ouch.

Michael Shannon definitely looks the part of a pretty ruthless General Zod, but we don’t really get to see much of him here, so I’ll wait for the second trailer to pass judgement on him. And judgement I will pass!

I do like how you can see the physical representation of Superman’s powers, in the scene where he is getting ready to take off, and slamming into the bank vault causing a huge dent, rather than just see him using his powers to fly really fast or laser-beam-eye a Hot Pocket. However, I think there is definitely room for this movie to take a turn for the worse. If you look at Snyder’s track record, its pretty much a shot in the dark. Not that he has made the worst movies really, but still… for every Dawn of the Dead, you have a Suckerpunch. For every Watchmen you have Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. Then there is 300, which a lot of people kind of thought was over the top, but I thought was pretty unique and bad ass for what it was. So, I am not saying that the new Superman movie is going to have cartoon owls, or giant Blue Man Group dudes walking around with their junk swingin’ in your face either. But hopefully we can get a real character driven Superman movie that uses CGI to enhance the story instead of tell it. By the way, anyone else notice that Clark wasn’t wearing any glasses? Hmm, must have gotten Lasik. Would they need a Kryptonite laser for that? Just curious…

Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy AdamsRussell Crowe, and Michael Shannon and is scheduled to take off (get it?) June 14th 2013. Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments! Especially the cheesy, “Me Clark, me walk through FIRE!” part.

 


First Trailer for World War Z!!!

Well, after the push backs, the re-writes and the weird rumors about Brad Pitt sleeping in cemeteries (he is such a method actor) to get closer to his role dealing with dead people, its finally here! OK, so maybe I was making up the bit about Brad Pitt sleeping in cemeteries, but I am not making up the fact that the first trailer is out for the Marc Forster film World War Z!!!

This one has been an interesting ride. The film hit a huge roadblock, or at least it seemed that way, when they had to bring in some other writers to help shore up its third act apparently. After watching the trailer though, I think its easy to see how this film could still go terribly wrong, in so many ways. First being, Brad Pitt was in no way not even slightly pissed off when that police officer broke his side view mirror on his car!!! COME ON!!! That would NEVER happen in real life!!!

My first thoughts when watching the trailer, are it almost seems like this was going to be in the same style and light as the Steven Soderbergh flick Contagion, where the movie kind of takes the issue at hand and looks at the more political and social implications of it. Now that I think of it, it kid of looks like World War Z is Contagion meets I am Legend… Yeah, that’s definitely what this is for sure. I am going to call this movie… I Am Contagend. (copyright 2012 Jake from Cinema Recon).

I’m not sure what to think about this one actually… I think I Am Contagend  will do well because Brad Pitt hasn’t done an action type movie for a while, so that will get a good draw. And lets not forget the fact that EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHERS ARE FUCKING OBSESSED WITH ZOMBIES FOR SOME REASON THAT IS KNOWN TO ABSOLUTELY NOBODY. So… there is that too. But I think the movie will be decent at best. Especially with a name like I Am Contagend… that’s just weird isn’t it? They should have went with a different name like Civil War Zombies, Zombie Revolution, or Robopocalypse… Yeah! Robopocalypse that’s a good one!!! Lets use that!!!

Check out the trailer below for I Am Robopocagend and let us know what you think in the comments!


EVIL DEAD Red Band Trailer

Not to be outdone by the glorious new trailer released yesterday for Iron Man 3 (which Jake presented to you here), a little film called Evil Dead has released a trailer of it’s very own.  Being that this is not only a horror film, but one of the highest profile horror films to be released this year, I would have to immediately hand over my overly certified horror-card if I was to post nothing in the face of such a gloriously gory event.  Warning: NSFW, as this is the RED BAND trailer…

While there’s no Boom Stick to be found, I am having trouble remaining still and not spouting incessant amounts of “zomg!!@#” or “wantwantwantnownownow”.  Yes, I’ve heard early internet murmurings that this looks like over the top torture porn.  No, I do not subscribe to this belief.  Any fan of the first Evil Dead will know the extent Sam Raimi went to deliver an outrageously frightening, excessively brutal,  and serious-as-a-heart-attack affair.  The humor (which I enjoy as well) was not a party to Evil Dead until the sequels.  Will the remake be able to hold it’s own among the previous trilogy?  Regardless, I refuse to accept any response to THIS trailer other than “Bad. Ass.”

I’m on board.  Sam and Bruce are on board.  The touchy-feely tree is on board.

“Groovy”

 


First Trailer for IRON MAN 3!!!

Whats up all you Cinema Recon-ites! Its been a long and busy summer and you may have noticed that Paul and I slowed down a bit… (I know I know, how selfish of us for wanting to enjoy our summer) but what better way to make a comeback than to bring you the trailer everyone has been waiting for (how ever long Paul has been waiting for it, I have been waiting one day longer… no big deal), the first Marvel movie after the huge success of The Avengers… that’s right folks, I’m talking about the brand spankin’ new trailer for Iron Man 3 directed by Shane Black!!!

There have been some set photos and some rumblings here on the inter-web about Iron Man 3, personally I am starting to lean more towards just waiting for the first trailer before jumping to any huge preconceived thoughts on the film, just mainly because so much of what you read and see on the internet can be out of context or have no credibility, or just the ramblings of some guy who thinks he knows movies and happens to have a laptop and internet access (hey, I’m a guy like me!).

But this trailer surprised everyone a little bit I think. They definitely Nolan-ized it with the third installment in the Iron Man franchise, making it “darker and grittier” a phrase I am growing to dislike very quickly, I can see Iron Man 4 now, advertised like a cheap cereal… “Now with 20% more grittier!!!” I think most people knew it was going to be a bit darker and more serious, but I think this trailer in particular goes a little further than expected. Plus, its got the awesome pseudo-dub step which is becoming a “must-have” in all of today’s cool kid movies… you ain’t cool unless your steppin’ in dub, at least that’s what my grand pappy use to say.

Personally, I think this looks bad ass. I am sure it will still have that sparkle that can only come from Robert Downey Jr., and his quips, but it looks like its going to have some more serious, kind of profound questions as well in regards to who Tony Stark and Iron Man really is, and what can and can’t he do, and his limitations and all that good stuff. My one and only concern at this point is the overuse of the Iron Man suit. We do see a clip of another type of Iron Man suit (that I am going to call Captain Iron America Man, copyright 2012 Jake). I am not sure if this is something that will be used against him or maybe on his side as something else that James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) can suit up in… but I know that one of the main flaws with Iron Man 2 for me, was just too many damn robots. Its like hey, if one Iron Man is cool, a thousand Iron Mans (Iron Men?) must be a thousand times cooler!!! Yeah… well, no.

For every other character like that you add on the screen is just that much more CGI that you have to throw in there and for me, I don’t care for CGI in mass quantities like that. So I hope that this doesn’t end up in another type of chase scene between two Iron Mans where they are flying through the city and blowing everything up again, because we saw that in Iron Man 2 and it didn’t work so well. Stick to the characters, that is what made Iron Man so awesome in the first one. A lovable yet flawed Tony Stark, an ominous and love-to-hate Obadiah Stane, and least we forget… Agent Coulson. And speaking of characters, we don’t get too see all that much of him but I am definitely looking forward to Ben Kingsley in the role of the Mandarin, Kingsley is the man so I have high hopes on this one. Give us great characters, and a compelling story and that will drive the movie. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that you have helicopters with machine guns.

Here you go, the first trailer for Iron Man 3, Let us know what you think in the comments!!!
