Since I need a breather from the politics (clearly) and movies have been a hot topic over the last week, I thought I'd point to a few films I am eagerly anticipating...
There have been a LOT of comic-based movies over the last several years, and in nearly ALL cases the trailers look cool. Unfortunately the payoff hasn't been there for most of them. I'm hoping Iron Man follows through. The armor looks awesome, the music is rocking and Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark might be the best casting for any character ever. RDJr is Tony Stark—rich, smug, alcoholic, substance abuser, wiseass...
THE BANK JOB
If nothing else, this movie gets my seal of kickassness for the best poster I've seen in years. I freaking LOVE this poster (click to embiggen). I haven't actually seen Statham in anything but "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" but I've seen trailers for everything else plus this and something tells me I'm a big fan waiting to happen. See the trailer here.
Like I need to write anything else here? Teaser.
I must be a sucker for the Euro-caper movies. Trailer
HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY
Why the hell not? The first one was supposed to be good...Trailer
Looks very good, but don't watch the trailer...spoiler.
