Good Grief! The trailer for ‘Peanuts’ (The Movie!)

Peanuts

Every once in a while, I like to pop in here and remind you about the weird little differences between Canada and the US. One of the most notable being that our Thanksgiving is in October rather than November, so once Halloween is out of the way, it's pretty much one big luge towards the holiday season. Which is why I'm sure most of you are probably already exhausted about Christmas, but not us! Especially when Peanuts releases a trailer MORE

Trailer: Disney’s (live-action) ‘Cinderella’

Cinderella

You have to give Disney credit where credit is due: They have a great understanding of their own image, and a keen awareness of how ... dated, shall we say, some of their earlier fare was. I mean yes, the Disney princess films are classics, but they're still very much aware of how much times have changed, and they're doing a lot to try and rework their formula to create better female characters. (Frozen in particular did this well, though you MORE

Official Full Trailer: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey

I'll be the first to admit, I haven't exactly been subtle in my disdain for Fifty Shades of Grey (in theaters Valentine's Day–how romantic). In fact, anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of BDSM knows enough to veer as far away from this stuff as possible. But I also know that regardless, this is (and will continue to be) very popular, so allow me to put in a companion piece for the below trailer. Because if we're going to put warning MORE

Trailer: ‘Minions’–getting their own movie!

Minions

Okay, so real talk here: I have seen both Despicable Me movies. I liked both of them. I liked the Minions and thought they were a great addition to the movie that rounded out the plot nicely. But, and this is a minor one, I don't seem to love Minions the same way the web has, to the point where Minion memes are popping up left and right on Facebook. It's like bacon: I get the appeal, I enjoy it immensely, but there's such a thing as too much, MORE

First Look: Avengers: Age of Ultron–teaser trailer!

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Hey, so remember that time Marvel put all your favorite superheroes in one movie and then it made a bajillion dollars (actual box office figure)? Well, it looks like they're going for round two because it's mothaf*cking Avengers: Age of Ultron time–they've got a teaser trailer and everything–the film is due out on May 15, 2015. The two-minute teaser features giant Iron Man suits, Scarlet Witch–and Quicksilver who was the best part of X-Men: MORE

And now, a word about the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trailer

Fifty Shades of Grey

It's been a while since I talked about Fifty Shades of Grey, but since the first trailer is out and nothing else is happening, let's talk about this. This isn't about the quality of the book or the movie. That's a matter of personal taste and for the sake of an objective view point, I can't bring in my own personal standards. Here's the problem I have with it ... the vibe coming off the trailer is that it's supposed to be a dark romance sort MORE

The first teaser for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt 1′

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1

You know, amidst the hype and popularity of The Hunger Games movies, and despite the marketing campaign aimed at a younger crowd, it's weird how people forget that the books are a surprisingly deep Dystopian critique of Western culture's celebrity worship / dissociation for those under the poverty line. But then, it's hard to use that as a tagline, so I can kind of see why. Anyway, here's the first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part MORE

Here’s the second trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Hercules’

Dwayne Johnson

Here's the latest trailer for Hercules (July 25th) starring Dwayne Johnson, and before you say it: Yes, I am aware that it looks kind of dumb. And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way. The thing is, I have a deep, deep love for movies that I call 'dumb boners,' so named because ... well, you figure it out. The movies that so gleefully bound away from logic and common sense that they become sublime master pieces. Like Hansel and Gretel, MORE

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has a new trailer!

X-Men: Days of Future Past

They are really pushing the new X-Men: Days of Future Past hard, aren't they? Not that I'm necessarily complaining, since the movie looks pretty good and the last two X-Men films have more than made up for the unmentionable third movie. I'm just saying, they had me in their back-pocket since the first trailer, now they're just gilding the lily. Although I would say that Quicksilver's costume just looks ... weird to me. Although I think a big part MORE

Trailer: ‘Intramural’ (starring lots of SNL peeps)

Intramural

After the major cast upheaval that capped off last season of Saturday Night Live, it's nice to see that the new crop of performers and writers have come together and carved out a voice for themselves. (Dongs All Over The World. Perfection.) Anyway, now that they have their footing, it's time for them to start playing around in indie comedy movies, so with that in mind, here's the trailer for Intramural (premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival), MORE

Trailer: Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending

Here's the truth: The BF and I normally agree on just about everything, but we have VASTLY differing taste in movies and TV shows. For example, I love 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, and he would rather eat a bucket of deep-fried spiders. And while Dune is one of his favorite movies, my eyes glazed over after thirty minutes of ... all of that. Sci-fi is not my forte, and it's absolutely his. Anyway, here's the Andy and Lana Wachowski directed MORE

Trailer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been characters whose looks just didn't translate well in real life. Shockingly, mutant reptiles tend to be cuter when they're hand-drawn than when they're rendered in real life, where they plummet into the uncanny valley and claw their way into your subconscious. With that in mind, here's the trailer for director Michael Bay's new TMNT movie (due out this coming August), which actually doesn't look MORE

Trailer: Dwayne Johnson is ‘Hercules’

Dwayne Johnson

Remember how yesterday I posted pictures of Dwayne Johnson looking all hot and muscley as Hercules? Well, here's the trailer for that movie, set for a July 25th release. It doesn't show a whole lot, but I'm still pretty confident about it because Johnson has always been pretty dependable for committing to a movie completely and elevating the material. Fingers crossed! MORE

Here’s another trailer for Disney’s ‘Maleficent’

Maleficent

I'm in a very weird place with Disney's Maleficent (May 30). On one hand, I love the new trailer, and I really love the direction the movie seems to be going in with the title character played by Angelina Jolie. On the other hand, the trailer's are starting to get a touch to ... showy. I'll still see the movie, no doubt about it, but it's getting to the point where they're showing too much from the movie and I'm worried that too much reveal is MORE
