This Movie Looks So Effing Good... I CAN'T!
Martin Scorsese‘s films are known for having some of the most amazing scores ever, and it looks like his new movie The Wolf Of Wall Street will fall right in line. We haven’t heard much about the gilm (although we did see Leonardo DiCaprio on set a while back), but today we have our first look at the trailer and it is so effing exciting! First of all, Kanye West‘s new single Black Skinhead is pulsing through the whole thing and it is the perfect backdrop for this wild story about New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort, author of the best-selling memoir The Wolf of Wall Street. This guy made $49 million in 1996 alone and, apparently, knew how to party. One can’t help but think of Leo‘s most recent film The Great Gatsby with all the lavishness in this trailer, but methinks The Wolf Of Wall Street (which also stars Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill) will be a completely different experience. Peep the trailer for more!
The Wolf Of Wall Street hits theatres November 15.
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
LMAOOOOOoooooooo! I kid you not, I laughed the entire way through this madness. As I mentioned on my movie Dads post, I saw Man Of Steel this weekend, so you can imagine my delight at seeing this trailer for the inevitable porn parody, Man Of Steel XXX. Seriously– one of the actors is named Ryan Driller. I can’t! Please, watch the video and somebody please tell me how in the hell I’m supposed to, like, be turned on by this. Am I doing it wrong? Let me know.

And 1 Who Didn't...
It’s Father’s Day y’all! Last year we celebrated with a look at back at some of the best movie dads of all time, and this year we’re gonna celebrate some of the new guys. Look– we all have our Daddy issues, and sometimes the best place to work those issues out is at the cinema (just ask Martin Scorsese). In the past year many-a-flick has come out showcasing strong fathers and father figures– and highlighting all of the drama that comes with them, so I’ve picked just a few of the characters that left a major impression on me. Be they good guys or bad guys, movie Dads are usually pretty interesting fellas… kinda like the real-live Dads we all know and lurve. Celebrate Father’s Day 2013 with a look back at some of my personal favorite movie Dads of the past year!
The Odd Love Life Of A Massage Therapist And Her Family
Ellen Page has been getting lots of attention lately, having been romantically linked to the hawtness that is Alexander Skarsgård. But lest we forget she is a legitimate actress, here’s the trailer for her next film Touchy Feely. She’s starring alongside Rosemarie DeWitt (who is always awesome… and I’ve missed her on Mad Men lately), Ron Livingston, and Allison Janney. Rosemarie plays a massage therapist who loses her mojo, and Ellen plays her sister… who may or may not be putting the moves on Rosemarie‘s boyfriend. It looks like a good, fun, indie flick so I’m excited for its September 6th release. Peep the video for more!
'300: Rise Of An Empire' Looks Like Another Epic Bloodbath
Look. Please don’t tell my senior year Greek Philosophy professor but… I friggen loved the 2006 movie 300… no matter how historically inaccurate it may have been. I mean, I seriously loved it… in a creepy, unhealthy way that we shall never fully discuss. So I was a little wary when I heard about a 300 sequel, but the trailer’s just been released and I can’t help but get excited! 300: Rise Of An Empire stars Lena Headey (who was amazing in the first 300, and who’s now a Game Of Thrones star), Eva Green, and the unforgettable Rodrigo Santoro, who’s coming back as Xerxes. From what I undertsand the movie is based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and takes place before, during and after the events of 300. Zack Snyder (director of Man Of Steel and 300) co-wrote and co-produced it, so I’m expecting good things. Peep the video for more!
The Most Famous Woman in the World
Last July we got our first look at actress Naomi Watts in character as the Princess Diana. At the time, we learned that she would be starring as the late princess in a biopic film titled Caught In Flight. Since that time, the film’s title has been changed to simply Diana and today we get our first look at the first teaser trailer released for the film. At this point, we don’t know when Diana will be released but based on the teaser trailer embedded above, it looks like the film may be a serious contender during awards season. Check out the trailer and see what you think. Does Naomi Watts make a convincing Princess Diana to you based on what you see here?

Plus, Watch the Powerful Trailer for 'The Butler'
We’re pretty used to seeing divalicious Mariah Carey all dolled up and glam as can be but in the upcoming new Lee Daniels directed film The Butler, she plays a character as far away from her real life persona as possible. Mariah will be featured in the film as a field slave named Hattie Pearl and you can get your first look at MC in character below. I’ve been minorly aware of The Butler due to the fact that Oprah Winfrey being cast as the female lead but it wasn’t until I saw the movie trailer that I really took notice of this film. Click below to see Mariah‘s promo photo and check out the trailer for yourselves. I think you’ll agree that The Butler looks like a powerful film that will likely garner a lot of attention come awards season. More »
Away We Go Again
Last December Peter Jackson released the first film of a new trilogy based on the JRR Tolkein novel The Hobbit and today we get our first look at the first trailer for the second Hobbit film. Titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, this second film will open in theaters on December 13 … just about one year after the first film was released. Click the embed above to see what Bilbo Baggins and his Middle Earth gang get up to in this second film installment. Keep an eye out for Lost actress Evangeline Lilly as she makes her debut as an elf. Considering how unimpressed I was with the first Hobbit film, I can’t say I’m all that jazzed for this second film … at least not yet. What do y’all think? Does this look like a winner … or a snoozer?
The Trailer's Kinda Meh, But I'm Still Excited!
A couple of weeks back I nearly lost my mind when I realized Netflix was finally streaming Woody Allen‘s Manhattan! Aghhh! I’d never seen it before! How did that happen?! Anyway, I’ve seen it now along with a few of his more contemporary works, so I’m officially a fan and very excited for his new flick, Blue Jasmine. Today we get our first look at the trailer and it’s got an interesting, typically-Woody plot. Cate Blanchett plays a woman in the midst of a breakdown after getting played and swindled by her husband (Alec Baldwin). She’s forced to live with her sister (Sally Hawkins) and it’s pretty much all downhill from there. Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Cannavale and Max Casella also have roles in the film.
