Trailers!

December 22nd, 2011

Well, yesterday I waxed poetic about Sacha Baron Cohen’s performance in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, so it seems like a good time to direct your attention to his upcoming film, The Dictator:

That looks like fun!  It’s directed by Larry Charles (a key creative force behind Seinfeld, and also the director of Borat and Bruno) and written by Sacha Baron Cohen along with Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer (three other Seinfeld writers who have also been intimately involved with Curb Your Enthusiasm). That’s a lot of comedy talent, so I’m excited for this one.

Bryan Singer finally has another film coming out — this trailer for Jack the Giant Killer caused a small kerfuffle when it was released last week, with some loving it and others very much not.  Judge for yourself:

There really hasn’t been a single film directed by Bryan Singer that I haven’t enjoyed.  So although on the surface nothing about that trailer gets me that excited to see this movie, I remain interested.

After a decade and a half, they’re making a third Men in Black movie???  The second film was a disappointment but the original has a warm place in my heart.  Could this new one be any good?  I don’t know, but the amazing final shot of this trailer gives me hope:

How about that??  I don’t know how they did it, but Josh Brolin looks and sounds absolutely PERFECT!  I’m becoming cautiously optimistic about this one.

Lastly, just for the hell of it, here’s The Hobbit trailer once again.  I just can’t stop watching this thing!
