Super Subtle, Super Epic.
Produced by The Dark Knight‘s Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch) Man Of Steel is in some very good hands. We now get to experience what the lucky folks at San Diego Comic-Con already have (and some of you at the TDKR premiere too)– the first glimpse of a highly-anticipated project set to premiere next summer. The trailer is earning Snyder some Terrence Malick comparisons (Malick directed The Tree Of Life and The New World) and I don’t see that as a negative. With powerful, poetic imagery and very little dialogue– or action– the Man Of Steel teaser is a work of art in and of itself. Check out the U.S. and International teasers inside.
Here Come The Bridesmaids
The good news is that you’re about to see Rebel Wilson as the bride in this new trailer for the Sundance hit, Bachelorette. The bad news is that, according to the people who’ve already seen the film, they left out all the good R-rated stuff! Womp, womp. Still, at least we get a peek at the new movie and, until they come out with the NSFW trailer, this one will have to do. PG-13 rated laughs inside!
There Will Be Scientology
Considering the TomKat divorce, this is an especially interesting time for us to be getting a movie about the now-controversial belief system of Scientology. According to sources, Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a character based on L. Ron Hubbard, the real-life creator of Scientology. Paul Thomas Anderson will direct The Master, his first film since 2007′s There Will Be Blood, and Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams will co-star. Did I say I can’t wait? I can’t wait. The trailer’s inside and, it is seriously intense. Checkie out.
Ya’ll will have to excuse my behavior for the day; there may be very few non-movie-related stories from my end. I’ve just seen (ahem) The Dark Knight Rises and can think of nothing better than a day filled with movie news. Movie clips, movie trailers, movies that make me think about the relationship between capitalism and freedom as we understand it in our society… what? Yeah. More very good movies please! And The Bourne Legacy might fall into that category, although the studios were probably right to push their premiere date back. Releasing the film a week after the madness that will be The Dark Knight Rises is a much better look, methinks. Still, we have something to get excited about with Jeremy Renner, who certainly has the chops to carry on but also redefine the Bourne series. Check out two new clips inside!

Detroit, Michigan is a city that should be near and dear to all of our hearts. Trent hails from the rockinest of Rock Cities and earlier this summer he shared a story about the (hopefully) forthcoming Zombie Theme Park– a brilliant attempt to revitalize the once-thriving community in Detroit. You could say that the filmmakers of Detropia (Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, who brought us the Oscar-nominated doc Jesus Camp) are making a similar attempt. The film will tell a familiar story of troubles in the Midwest, but also looks like it will portray the Detroit story as an American story. Check out the amazing trailer inside.

Here's To You Mrs. Robinson
Melanie Lynskey is a huge talent who I’ve always wanted to see blow up. I first saw her when I was, like 13, in Drew Barrymore‘s Cinderella story (Ever After) and I’ve never forgotten her face. Since then she’s done a ton of indie movies including Win Win and the upcoming The Perks Of Being A Wallflower; now she’s a divorcée falling in lurve with a 19-year old (story of my life) in Hello I Must Be Going. Super cute trailer inside.
That-Ish-Cray of the Day
For all of you who watched The Dark Knight Rises trailer and couldn’t help wondering what it would have sounded like if Pee Wee Herman had voiced every character– I have something special for you today :) Thank me later.
Joyeaux Bastille Day!
What? You didn’t know it was Bastille Day, the day we celebrate French liberation and culture? It’s okay; I found out on Fashionista. And then Trent Facebook‘d it and I realized we should totally be celebrating over here at PITNB! I’ve found lots of excuses to blog about my love for French film– Boston’s having a French Film festival, Diane Kruger is playing Marie Antoinette, and Marion Cotillard is on, like, every magazine cover next month. And now we have Bastille Day! Check out some amazing new clips and trailers from upcoming French films with all your fave French actresses. Ok, they’re my faves but I think you’ll like them too :)
"Fight the Dead, Fear the Living"
Last week we got to check out a clip of new footage from the forthcoming third season of The Walking Dead and today we get to check out the just-released 4 minute long preview trailer for The Walking Dead season 3. This new trailer was unveiled first at 2012 San Diego Comic-Con last night but it was released online shortly thereafter. Clocking in at just over 4 minutes, this trailer gives us a very good understanding of what will transpire when the show returns this October. Put your feet up, settle back and check out 4 minutes of awesome Walking Dead footage below. More »

Of all the movies I could imagine comedian Zach Galifianakis producing, this isn’t really one of them. It’s not especially goofy or ridiculous and it doesn’t include a cameo from Mike Tyson or Jonathan Ames. But then again, Galifianakis does seem like a total sweetheart and this is a pretty sweet film, judging by the trailer. Craigslist Joe is a documentary that follows a young man who attempts to live entirely off of Craigslist. Don’t tell me you’ve never thought of doing that! We’ve all looked at that screen and felt like we could get just about anything wanted, lol. Which is what makes this movie a great idea! Check out the first trailer inside.
