Diplomatic Immunity

Because I’ve got your best interests at heart I thought I’d show you this cracking trailer. I realise you may have some serious giant robot fatigue right now, what with the mega budgeted disappointments that were Terminator Salvation and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but hang in there. I’ve been tracking Neill Blomkamp’s first feature for a while and I think that it has got some serious potential. Blomkamp was attached to the Peter Jackson produced Halo video game adaptation which fell through, this is his way of dealing with that disappointment. The premise is a little like Alien Nation but with the setting of South Africa there is the potential for a whole other level of intrigue in the portrayal the race relation subtext. I’ll let you be the judge of how it looks…

More Guns, Hot Naked Chicks, Car Crashes and a Double Whiskey…

I absolutely loved the initial promo trailer for Give ’em Hell, Malone (see it here). I reckon it was the best trailer I’d seen in a long while. Well, the more conventional Cannes trailer is out and the film is still up there on my radar. The soundtrack just gets better with the addition of Johnny Cash’s cover of the Soundgarden classic Rusty Cage. The dames look hot, the whisky looks cold and the fightin’, car crashin’ and deformed bad-guy count appears to be in order.
Here’s the new trailer for your viewing pleasure…

How would you defend yourself from a man with a dildo?

I quite enjoyed Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan so I was excited to hear about the new international Red Band trailer for Brüno. It looks like it might deliver the same sort of humour but with an added sense of style and a whole heap of homophobic hilarity. I laughed like a drain at this trailer and I hope that the film keeps up the steady stream of gags because Borat didn’t quite manage to maintain the same high level of humour. If the full length release is anywhere near as funny then we’re in for a treat…

Guns, Hot Chicks, Car Chases, Whiskey…

Hello there!

I’ve decided that I quite fancy sharing some of the really cool stuff to do with films that occasionally pops up and piques my interest. This is the first of these posts and you can use the comments to tell me whether or not you’re interested in any of the things I put up.  Most of the news/trailers and other bits that I find comes via the excellent film website http://www.slashfilm.com/, which I can heartily recommend.

Anyways – first little piece of goodness is the excellent looking trailer for the soon to arrive Give ’em Hell, Malone (Russell Mulcahy, 2009). From this trailer I’m really looking forward to the film and I’m sure some of you will too.
