Plus Christina Hendricks And Other Actors You Lurve!
A while back y’all got your first look at Struck By Lightning and now the film has an official trailer and a release date, which is awesome! Glee actor Chris Colfer is seriously, seriously branching out. As Trent reported back in February, not only is he starring in the new movie, but he also wrote the whole damn screenplay. Now the trailer doesn’t look absolutely mind-blowing (and it looks a lot like the first unofficial trailer, just a little tighter I guess), but I love the literary/dark/revenge-y twist that Colfer has written into the storyline. His character was struck by lightning (yup) and killed, but spends the whole movie recounting the time he blackmailed fellow students into contributing to his literary magazine. And the cast is kind of, totally awesome: Colfer, Pitch Perfect‘s Rebel Wilson, Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland, The Office‘s Angela Kinsey, as well as Ashley Rickards (who I kind of adore on Awkward), Allison Janey, Allie Grant (from Weeds!) and literally everyone else you know and lurve from movies and television, lol. Peep the trailer for more! Do you guys think Chris Colfer is headed for a Hollywood takeover?
Struck By Lightning hits theatres in January of 2013.
Behind Every 'Psycho' Is A Great Woman
Ove the past few months we’ve gotten to experience so many awesome sneak peeks at the new movie Hitchcock. Back in May we saw leading ladies Scarlett Johannson and Jessica Biel on set and in costume, and earlier this month we saw new stills from the movie, a movie poster featuring the great Anthony Hopkins (nearly unrecognizable as Alfred Hitchcock), and finally we got to watch the very promising trailer for the film itself. I, for one, am excited. And I’m loving this new poster, which features Helen Mirren and Hopkins as a husband and wife duo like no other. Checkie out inside!

Because Indie Rom Coms Do It Better
Sigh. Ever since we saw the trailer for that new Chris Messina movie, I’ve been in an indie rom-com mood. Totally fell asleep to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind last night. It was glorious. Anyhoo, I’ve been hearing some buzz about this new Lizzy Caplan flick, Save The Date, and I finally watched the trailer today. It looks very promising– slightly reminiscent of Rachel Getting Married, but also has that young, very musical, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist feel to it as well. It looks super sweet, and then super sad, and then bittersweet… but mainly awesome. Peep the trailer for more! I haven’t seen a lot of Lizzy Caplan‘s work but she’s been on New Girl and also had a role in Bachelorette, aaand as PITNBR Tatum aptly pointed out– she was Janis Ian in Mean Girls! I’m sure a lot of you will recognize Alison Brie from Community, so there’s that to look forward to. Anybody else loving the trailer?
Save the Date hits VOD November 8 and theaters December 14.
Another Adaptation For 'The Notebook' Author
Well, let me just say that this trailer isn’t as sexy as the one we just saw for Chris Messina‘s new flick, but that’s totally okay. The writer of The Notebook and Dear John has lent his work to another movie adaptation and Safe Haven tells a similar story of star-crossed lovers who’ve got hella odds to beat if they’re gonna continue to get it on and poppin.’ I’m telling you– this plot never gets old, lol! Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough (who is stepping away from her recent roles in dance flicks like Rock Of Ages and Footloose) look like an okay pair– I wasn’t blown away by their chemistry in the trailer. Still, they did have a scene that totally reminded me of Olivia and the President in last week’s episode of Scandal, so that pleased me in more ways than one. What? LMAO, peep the trailer for more! Oh, and Lasse Hallström– the guy who brought us Dear John, Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, and Chocolat (Chocolat!!!)– is directing!
"Why the f*ck did you do that?!"
At New York Comic Con, attendees got their first look at the forthcoming remake version of the campy classic horror film The Evil Dead (1981). Today the rest of us get to have our own first look at the film in a just-released red band trailer. Now, it’s been a lot of years since I’ve seen the original Evil Dead (which stars Bruce Campbell and was written and directed by Sam Raimi) so my memory may be a little rusty but … this new version of Evil Dead looks a lot scarier then the original film. As much as I don’t really love the idea of remaking films that are already perfect, I can’t say that I’m totally against this new version of The Evil Dead … especially after seeing this red band trailer. Both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi are involved with this remake (both as producers). Check it out but be warned, as with all red band trailers, there is strong language and lots of blood to behold. Any Evil Dead fans out there? What do y’all think of this new remake?

"Honestly, there's a 100 people who want to kill me"
Yesterday we saw the teaser trailer for the first Iron Man 3 trailer and today we finally get to see the first trailer in full. Wow, that’s a mouthful. After giving us a quick tease, Marvel Studios wasted no time in giving us the first full-length trailer for IM3 and as you can see above … it’s a doozy. Things don’t seem to be going very well for Tony Stark aka Iron Man and as this trailer shows, he has a LOT on his plate as the film starts. Check out the trailer, see what you think … then click below to see another batch of just-released Iron Man 3 promo photos, including our first look at Ben Kingsley as the villainous character The Mandarin.

More Political Thrill-Age
Just yesterday we heard news about a forthcoming 9/11 ‘truther’ film, September Morn. I was immediately reminded of the teaser trailer we saw a while back for the new movie from Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), titled Zero Dark Thirty. As it turned out, the movie– which chronicles the hunt for Osama bin Laden– released a full trailer earlier this month. I’m not sure that I’m exactly thrilled about this movie, mainly because the events are so recent and I’m not one to celebrate anybody’s death. Still, the film looks powerful and Jessica Chastain is a fave of mine so I’m looking forward to seeing how she performs. Chris Pratt, Joel Edgerton, and Kyle Chandler also star in the film.
A Documentary By Spike Lee
We’ve been hearing some not-so-awesome news about the legacy of Michael Jackson over the last few months, and a lot of it has to do with what we might call the mishandling of his young children. But now we’ve got some positive news about the pop star, whose memory lives on in many forms. Legendary director Spike Lee has been hard at work on his latest film, Michael Jackson BAD 25, a documentary about the making of Jackson‘s 1987 album Bad. The television documentary will feature tons of found footage, including some material that Michael Jackson shot himself, as well as interviews with those who worked closely with him on the iconic album. Artists like Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crowe, and Kanye West will also appear in the film. I didn’t grow up on Michael Jackson, nor would I call myself a die-hard fan, but I live on planet earth so yeah. Michael Jackson changed my life, lol. I’m really excited to see what Spike Lee was able to uncover, and how he pulled the documentary together. Check out the trailer above! Are you ready to re-experience Bad?
Michael Jackson BAD 25 airs on ABC, Thursday, November 22 at 9:30 pm.
'I'm So Tired Of Not Having You When I Want You'
For some time now, I’ve been debating about whether or not Chris Messina (Julie & Julia, The Trouble With Bliss, The Mindy Project) is hot. Well, I just watched the trailer for 28 Hotel Rooms and… I think Chris Messina is hot. Anyone concur? In the new movie he plays alongside Marin Ireland (who you might recognize from Mildred Pierce), and the chemistry between the two is intense, to say the least. The film got rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and I’m thinking we can expect some pretty good things. Peep the trailer for more!
28 Hotel Rooms is on VOD now, and hits theatres November 16th.
