A trailer for Scorsese's fantasy arrives

Not too long after a teaser poster for Martin Scorsese’s fantasy HUGO hit earlier this week, we have a trailer for the film that you can check out at Apple.

Like most every other trailer out there, the 30 Seconds to Mars track “Kings and Queens” is played in the background. However, it sets itself apart from those other trailers with wondrous imagery and an engaging story.

To say that the film will be fantastical seems to be a drastic understatement based on what we see here. Scorsese takes an absolutely gorgeous world of fantasy and brings it to life. The fact that he was so keen on making it a 3D feature left tons of room for worry, but HUGO actually looks like one of those rare films that might be enhanced by 3D technology. (more...)

AKIRA

Things appear to be looking up for one of the longest gestating projects out there.

Despite being presumably dead on arrival, WB’s long talked-about adaptation of the iconic graphic novel-turned-anime film AKIRA may have just found a second life. After losing director Albert Hughes, Showblitz is reporting that WB has tapped UNKNOWN helmer Jaume Collet-Serra to direct the project.

The film is being “reenvisioned as $90 milion tentpole, and will feature the manga’s author, Katsuhiro Otomo, on board as a producer." Originally eyed as a film with a $230 million budget, this version is a far less expansive project it sounds, and thus should be seen as something of a total reconstruction. (more...)

Please note: I have not seen TOTAL RECALL.

Hooray! I've been waiting so long for this day to come and it's finally here. The first official image of Colin Farrell in the TOTAL RECALL remake has arrived thanks to Entertainment Weekly (via Film Stage)! I remember so much about the original TOTAL RECALL. I really like Arnold Schwarzenegger's performance in it. Also, that thing that happens in space? The future? I think the idea of recalling all that stuff was really interesting. (more...)

Writers: Steve Kloves (screenplay), J.K. Rowling (novel)
Director: David Yates
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Jason Isaacs
Studio: Warner Bros.

In halving the final book of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, director David Yates and veteran Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves have been given the chance to double the impact of the boy wizard’s final battles. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 mostly delivers on that conceit, but it intermittently grasps at wands, not quite sure where to aim its many spells.

The film will surely play best when preceded by a viewing of PART 1, as this last film takes a while to get its footing, beginning where the first left off without pause. We return to Bill and Fleur’s seaside cottage, as Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his closest cohorts (Emma Watson and Rupert Grint) attempt to make sense of what has just happened to them at Malfoy Manor. In piecing things together, Harry seeks counsel with other survivors, including goblin Griphook. In a throwaway moment of pleasantry, Harry simply asks Griphook how he is, to which the goblin responds with one word – “alive.” And that small exchange pretty well sums up where we are in the opening of PART 2, having faced so much loss and upheaval, just being alive is a statement.

I still think "A STUFF" would've been a better prequel name.

With Comic-Con on the horizon, some of the more interesting projects coming out over the next year are going to be getting some face time. Today, MSN has released the first official trailer for THE THING (prequel). The trailer shows off some of the practical effects as well as Mary Elizabeth Winstead's super hot lady hotness. Check out the trailer after the jump. (more...)
