trailer alert

Trailer Alert: Only Lovers Left Alive

Somebody decided to make a movie starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as vampires, and now we have a Japanese trailer for it.

The film is called Only Lovers Left Alive, and while the creative team obviously had a penchant for putting the entire cast in Hermione Granger-esque wigs, the film looks like a blood-sucking good time.

Speaking of sucking…

And the moody cinematography and trailer’s Japanese voice overs reminded me of Moon Child, aka the best vampire J-Rock film ever.

The film won’t be released until 2014. I’ll continue being jealous of a popsicle until then.

Trailer Alert: Saving Mr. Banks

The history of making Mary Poppins into a film was a troubled one. Author P.L. Travers strongly disliked the film when it came out, and she forbade Walt Disney from ever making another Poppins film.

That hasn’t stopped Disney from making Saving Mr. Banks, a film that reimagines the making of Mary Poppins with Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers. The rest of the cast looks equally fabulous, with Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, my wife Ruth Wilson, and many more rounding off the cast. Bonus points to Jason Schwartzman and B.J. Novak in some funny scenes as the Sherman brothers.

While it may not be historically accurate, I wouldn’t mind the extra spoonful of sugar added to this movie.


When I learned that Leonardo DiCaprio was filming The Wolf of Wall Street, I quickly dismissed it. The title reminded me of all those movies that are “thrillers” about rich and powerful white guys having pissing contests with other rich and powerful white guys.

But the trailer proved me wrong. It’s actually a black comedy that is the crazy lovechild between American Psycho and Animal House. Leo’s dancing at 1:34 is ripe for the meme-ing, and Matthew McConaughey looks like he’s going to deliver another great scene stealing character-y performance.

Thank you movie gods for answering my prayers.
