From The Director Of 'The Astronaut Farmer'
Towards the end of 2012, many folks saw Jack Kerouac‘s writing come to the big screen via On The Road. The film received good reviews (including one from Trent) and soon we’ll be seeing more of Kerouac‘s work translated into film. Another classic novel of his, Big Sur, has been adapted and the trailer was just released. Michael Polish (The Astronaut Farmer) is directing, and Kate Bosworth and Jean-Marc Barr play the leads. I think the trailer has a good feel to it and I’m looking forward to seeing more (although I’m not familiar with the text). What do you guys think?

Last month we got our first look at the first movie trailer for Guillermo Del Toro‘s new Monsters vs. Robots film Pacific Rim and today we get to see the just-released second trailer which was unveiled exclusive at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV last night. Altho CES didn’t start officially until today, little gems like this appeared online yesterday afternoon and evening. This new trailer isn’t all that different from the first trailer we saw but there are new scenes of monsters battling robots … which is always a good time. I cannot even tell you how excited I am to see this movie! Check out the trailer and Enjoy!

Set In 1960s London
This role could turn out to be a really big deal for young actress Elle Fanning. In Ginger & Rosa she plays a teenage girl,coming into her own in 1960s London. The trailer looks really fantastic, and I can’t believe I haven’t seen more movies by this director! Sally Potter adapted one of my absolute favorite novels of all time, Virgina Woolf‘s Orlando, so I gotta start checking out her work. Elle stars alongside Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, Annette Bening, Alice Engert, and Oliver Platt. Peep the trailer for more!
Ginger & Rosa hits theatres in limited release this March.
Is Scare U Right for You?
Later this year, the prequel film Monsters University will open in theaters and to promote the film’s release, Disney/Pixar has released a video promo and is meant to look like a recruitment ad for the fictional Monsters U. The clip aired during the Rose Bowl football game this week and is meant to look exactly like a real life college recruitment ad. It’s really cute, check it out above. Then, click below to see what the official website for Monsters University looks like … yes, Disney/Pixar created a fully fleshed out site for the fictional university. It’s brilliant! More »

All The Stuff That Other Wack-Ass Trailer Didn't Show You
So, back in September Trent shared the first official trailer for Jeremy Renner‘s new movie Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters. Nobody seemed to really be feelin’ it… including me, but we have some good news! The red band trailer is officially here and it’s got enough blood in it to make Tarantino shudder. Just kidding, Tarantino doth not shudder, but this was kind of a fun trailer (and, well, I just love a good red band trailer). I still don’t know why Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner‘s in this, and I still don’t think this is a movie that’ll have, like, some really deep narrative or any compelling character arcs, lol. But it looks like fun. Bloody fun, in fact. Peep the video for more! Anybody into it now?
Remember the Golden Age of MP3s
Before Spotify and iTunes and the ability to download music at will on your computer, your phone, your tablet — for a fee — you were able to download almost any song in existence for FREE with the help of an amazing program called Napster. Do you remember? Back in the late 90′s, Napster turned the music business upside down by making digital copies of songs freely available to anyone with an Internet connection. Those of us who remember the hey day of Napster remember how good it used to be … and a new documentary titled Downloaded is about to remind us about that time, not so long ago. Click above to check out the trailer for Downloaded and remember how good life was back then … and how quickly it went away.

OMGICAN'TWAAAAAAAAIT!!!!! It's Back February 10
We are just a bit over a month away from the return of the third season of The Walking Dead and I’m damn near ready to lose my mind with anticipation. The first half of the season ended what seems like EONS ago and we still have weeks to wait until the show returns with the second half of the season. To tide us over, AMC has released a new promo video for Season 3, Part 2 of The Walking Dead — which you can watch in full above. I know it’s not much but it’s something to feed on … um, besides brains ;)

In Case You Missed 'Em!
What a year for movies, right??? Friggen The Hunger Games! Friggen Avengers! Friggen The Dark Knight Rises! Friggen 2 Days In New York! Wait… you didn’t get a chance to see 2 Days In New York?!?! It’s okay, it’s okay! It was an indie flick, so– unlike TDKR– a lot of people missed it. But that’s why I’m here! Some of you may know that, while Pink Is The New Blog is my home [page], I also occasionally contribute film reviews to Paste Magazine. This means I get to watch a lot of indie movies, and gush about how much BETTER they were than all of the big blockbusters. LOL, except y’all know I’m totally not like that, and I love a big blockbuster as much as an indie flick. The Dark Knight Rises was, honestly, the best time of my life this year. But this one’s for the indies! So, as you patiently await Trent‘s annual list of cinematic faves, click inside for a few of my own– indie style!
This Trailer Is So Hilariously Weird.
Last week we heard the awesome news about Rebel Wilson hosting the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. The best part was that, in the promo video, Rebel teamed up with her Bridesmaid co-star (and real-life roommate, as PITNBR Lulu reminded us), Matt Lucas. The two are back at it in the upcoming dark comedy Small Apartments. The trailer is really weird (there’s a talking dog), kinda creepy, but definitely funny. Rebel seems to have a small role, but I’m really excited about the entire cast– Juno Temple, Johnny Knoxville, Billy Crystal, Amanda Plummer (who I haven’t seen since Pulp Fiction), and James Marsden are all up in the movie too. Peep the video for more!
Small Apartments will be released on DVD February, 2013.
