CR Has Seen The Hunger Games!

The Cinema Recon Studios have been extremely busy as of late.  Now that we are back from Austin, TX, we have nearly 20 hours of content to pour over and prepare for pod-pressing.  As we have been mentioning through Tweets, FaceSpaces, and posts to the website, we have many excellent movie reviews and interviews with bands from the 2012 SXSW event!  Look for some very special CR podcasts to land on the internets very soon…

In the meantime, business is back to normal for us in terms of show scheduling.  You may have heard of a little film called The Hunger Games, yes?  Well, the film earned a paltry $155 million this weekend, which was enough to crown it the 3rd biggest weekend opening of all time.  You can count Jake, Cassie, and myself as contributors to that giant pile of money, and we have the newest episode of Cinema Recon to prove it!

In the latest and greatest episode, you will hear:

  • Our review of The Hunger Games, with Cassie returning as guest!
  • How Lionsgate is celebrating the huge success of its latest release
  • Why we can’t wait for Season 2 of Game of Thrones
  • Our thoughts on the TMNT-aliens-Michael Bay controversy
  • Why we can’t stop watching the newest Prometheus trailer
  • The questionable sounds of Paul’s new clipboard

Check back soon to stream or download the 3/25/12 show!!

This would be easier if 'American Woman' wasn't stuck in my head ... thanks Lenny


New Trailer for The Cabin in the Woods!

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming horror romp The Cabin in the Woods.  Again, this new trailer plays up the angle that “you think you know” the formula for every horror movie.  What starts off as a Friday the 13th/Cabin Fever/Wrong Turn vibe quickly diverts into the realm of SciFi, with security cameras, underground laboratories, and invisible force fields!  Have a gander at the full trailer here:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The film will premiere at SXSW on March 9th (how convenient for us! …Now if we can just get passes…), but there is a little more than meets the eye with this one.  You see, Cabin in the Woods was shot in 2009!  This is always a scary caveat for a film.  Usually when a film sits on a shelf this long, a studio has no confidence in it.  They will generally wait to release such a stinker when the rest of their film schedule permits, and with zero marketing behind it.

And yet, I am hopeful.  Sure, I’m a sucker for all things horror, but this in particular could be a fun time.  It has a rather unique premise, was co-written by Joss Whedon (director of the upcoming Avengers), directed by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield), and stars a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth.  How can it be bad?!

Hopefully Cinema Recon manages to sneak into the SXSW premiere.  If we do, you can bet we will be reviewing it on an upcoming show, along with the other film premieres we have already confirmed (21 Jump Street and The Hunter).  I don’t like to make predictions, but I’ll go out on a limb here and say this will be the best horror movie of 2012 to feature Thor battling invisible force fields.

Cinema Recon at SXSW 2012!

South by Southwest is one of the biggest Music and Film festivals on the planet, and Cinema Recon has a front row seat for the action!

That’s right, we are packing up the show and taking it to Austin, TX!  While there, Cinema Recon will be sponsoring three HUGE Music Showcases hosted by our dear friends at Deadbird Records!  The Cinema Recon booth will be firmly entrenched, with Paul and Jake recording new podcasts, interviewing the headlining bands, chatting it up with CR Fans, unveiling brand new CR schwag, and much much more!

Cinema Recon also has the esteemed privilege of viewing several SXSW World Premiere films!  Confirmed so far for review on the show: 21 Jump Street and The Hunter

If you are in the Austin area for SXSW, come join us!  Check out the following for a summary of where you can find Cinema Recon at SXSW 2012:

Cinema Recon SXSW update!

Hey everyone! As you probably heard on the most recent show, we made the HUGE announcement that Cinema Recon will be attending the South by Southwest music and film festival in Austin, TX!!! We are beyond excited to be teaming up with Deadbird Records in Austin to sponsor 3 different showcases that are sure to be beyond bad ass. I mean come on, one of them is called “The Big Knife Party”… Does it get any more awesome than that!

We’re gonna pack up all our shit, hop on a plane and take this damn show on the road! Unfortunately, I do have to bring Paul, but I’m sure it will still be fun… (fingers crossed). This is our opportunity to bring you, our massive Cinema Recon audience (Hi Paul’s Mom), interviews with some really awesome bands on movies and music, and the SXSW scene in general. Below are the posters for the different showcases, and as you can see the line up is pretty intense. And if you check out the bottom of the posters, you will even see our brand-spankin’ new bright and shiny logo!

We can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to be a part of these showcases. Special thanks again to Deadbird Records, and stay tuned for more updates on SXSW,  the bands that will be there, and what we have in store!!!
