Did I miss the memo that there was going to a movie with Legos? Because until the trailer came out for The Lego Movie, I didn’t know it was happening. Now that I know it will be hitting the big screens on February 7th, I can’t wait to see it! I can’t remember the last time a trailer put as big of a smile on my face as this one. Doesn’t it look as much fun as when you played with your first set of Legos?
The first teaser trailer is out for Diana, and I am just not seeing Naomi Watts as the legendary Princess Diana. She still looks like herself with a wig and the late Princess. I am not saying she is a bad actress, she just isn’t the person I would have cast in the role. And she didn’t win me over in that minute preview.
I also have a theory, and I could be wrong; but I think the reason why you don’t hear her talk is because she doesn’t sound like her either. They might be trying to hide that fact as long as they can.
What do you think of the first promo for Diana?
The second red band trailer is out for The To Do List and to be honest I am not sure I want to see it when it comes out in August. It looks like it can be very funny, but then again it could be one of those trailers that just showed all the funny bits in it. So I will wait until it comes out on Netflix on lazy rainy Saturday afternoon.
There is a new clip from This Is The End and in it we see that Craig Robinson left Aziz Ansari there to die in the documentary about the apocalypse that stars everyone and their brother. I can’t blame Craig because afterall Aziz’s show is still on the air and his not. So if Aziz is no more than Craig can fill in him for on Parks & Rec. They look a lot alike, right?
BTW I am dying to see This Is The End when it come out on June 14th.
The second trailer is out for Disney’s Planes and I think the animated film is going to soar at the box office when it flies into theaters on August 9th. I mean not only can I see boys of all ages enjoying it, I can also see the future Disneyland ride that will eventually come from this film. That is when a movie from the Mouse has truly made it.
Morgan Freeman was doing a satellite interview with Q13 in Seattle early in the morning yesterday to promote his movie Now You See Me and it looks like it might’ve been too early for him. Because while his co-star Michael Caine was talking with the anchors, Freeman closed his eyes and it even appears that he took a power nap. When the interview concluded the actors mic was still on and you can here Caine say “Is that the last one?” Hopefully it was because it looks like Morgan can use the time off to take a real nap.
One of the memorable things about The Hangover is the awwwdorable Baby Carlos. Well he is back for the third and final installment that’s out this Friday and he is a big boy now! Grant Holmquist walked the red carpet yesterday for the LA premiere of the movie yesterday and the four year old is just as cute now as he was then! Seriously don’t you want to put him in a baby pouch and carry him around like Zach Galifianakis did in the first film?
Just think in about 10 years Grant has a the perfect pick up line to get all the ladies, “I was the baby in The Hangover movies!” That will so get him a bunch of girlfriends. I am sure the baby from the Nirvana album cover uses a line like that all the time to get the chicks.
BTW in case you forgot what he looked like in The Hangover, here is a scene I am not sure he will want those future girlfriends to remember.
There are many movies that Michael Bay should be sorry for, but there is only one that is actually apologizing that he made. The director told The Miami Herald, “I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called James Cameron and asked ‘What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?’ But the movie did fine.”
I guess I am in the minority, but that was one of the few movies of his that I actually enjoyed.
For the third time since 1976 Stephen King’s Carrie is being made into a movie. The new version’s trailer is out now and it looks like it might be boring until we get to that infamous prom season. Are you going to see it on October 18th or will you stay home and watch the original again?
The second trailer is out for The Conjuring and it looks even more frightening than the first one. Seriously this movie looks like it might be one of the scariest movies ever made. I don’t know if it is because of all the heart pounding moments we saw in that trailer, or the fact that is based on a real life case from two of the most famous paranormal investigators The Warrens. I am going with the latter because if out of all the cases that they looked at over all of these decades, this is the one that they opted to make a movie about. It probably means that is the one that scared the sh!t out of them the most. Because of that I can’t wait to see this film when it comes out on July 19th.
