  1. Synopsis: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski and Dolph Lundgren star in UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING, which ups the ante in the UNIVERSAL SOLDIER series, giving you more hard-hitting, bloody, no-holds-barred fighting action. John (Adkins, The Expendables 2) wakes up from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible, Luc Deveraux (Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol (Arlovski). As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rouge army of genetically enhanced warriors led by back-from-the-dead leader Andrew Scott (Lundgren), John discovers more about himself and begins to call into question everything he believed to be true. Following the well received Regeneration we get another instalment in the Universal Soldier franchise. No doubt a red band trailer will give a better flavour of the violence than the family friendly trailer above.
  2. This trailer had me grinning like a loon throughout!
  3. Synopsis: Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King’s Speech‘s Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar® winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne, with further casting to be announced. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs–including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”–Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3uUTKOUhZU
  4. Although there were rumblings of a troubled post-production McQueen's second feature, after the stunning Hunger, has been gaining a lot of good festival press. Synopsis: In New York City, Brandon's (Michael Fassbender) carefully cultivated private life -- which allows him to indulge his sexual addiction -- is disrupted when his sister Cissy (Carey Mulligan) arrives unannounced for an indefinite stay. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arD1Hmjlqag The trailer is based on a promo created by our very own Kerraig and it looks really good, not giving anything away but clearly demonstrating the tone.
  5. Synopsis: Based on true events, “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies. I consider Affleck a solid director but neither of his films have been much to write home about (although most of the problems come from the script end). The trailer for Argo looks more promising and with a cast including Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Kerry Bishe, and Alan Arkin the performances should be good.
  6. I've been posting little snippets about this film in the Dreamworks Animation Future Slate thread but we now have a trailer so it is time for a dedicated topic. Synopsis: Rise of the Guardians, based on the forthcoming books by William Joyce, will be released on November 21, 2012. It is directed by Peter Ramsey (Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space) and co-directed by Joyce. The film is being produced by Christina Steinberg (Bee Movie, National Treasure) and Nancy Bernstein, long-time head of Production at DreamWorks Animation. Rise of the Guardians is being written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro and Michael Siegel. It stars Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law. More than a collection of the well-known childhood legends, Rise of the Guardians is an epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world. There are some very promising scenes in the trailer and I really like the concept so hopefully this is another film to add to the slowly growing 'Good Animated Films from Dreamworks' list.
  7. Director Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon) is back with a new animated movie from Dreamworks: Synopsis: The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever. You can find some more artwork in the Dreamworks Animation Future Slate thread Sanders' track record is fantastic so fingers crossed he can strike gold for a third time.
  8. Synopsis: In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on that plane? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RtCMIe9oj8 The film stars Denzel Washington and is out in November. The big news here is the fact Zemeckis has (finally) ditched making mo-capped films in favour of making a live action movie. The cast is good and the crash looks like it should be impressive but there is something about the trailer that isn't quite working for me.
  9. Over the past decade, director Chan-wook Park, has proved himself one of South Korea's great filmmakers and he, like a number of other of his countrymen, makes his English language debut next year. Synopsis: After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him. Here is the first footage from the film. Sadly, as it is from ET we also get an obtrusive voiceover from the presenter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4Rs72AEUfQ I assume a proper trailer will debut online quite soon.

  11. Synopsis:When ex-CIA agent Ben Logan discovers that he and his daughter have been marked for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy, a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse ensues as Logan tries to outsmart his hunters and uncover the truth. Looks like every other post-Bourne thriller but with a daughter thrown into the mix. I do like Eckhart in these types of roles though and Liana Liberato was excellent in Trust so it might not be a complete waste.
  12. Amour won the top prize at Cannes last week and is Haneke's second Palme d’Or triumph. Synopsis: Georges and Anne are in their eighties. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack. The couple's bond of love is severely tested. I doubt this film will sway the director's detractors but for his fans (like me) Amour is one of my most anticipated films of the year. The UK release is November 16th.
  13. This is a pretty neat little short...
  14. This whole thread is gonna be spoilerific. If anyone bothers to reply. So for me SKYFALL has quite possible the worst plot of any film i've ever seen. Not just cos it's full of holes, but simply cos it is a shit plot. Spurned secret agent blows up MI6 then deliberately gets caught just so that he can escape and having a badly executed shoot out in a court room (that has a public gallery). After plot fails our hero takes the intended victim to an undefendable house in the middle of nowhere, with no means of escape to try and protect her. And fails. He is then given a medal. But surely there must be worse no? Preferably not a bond film, as they are all a bit ludicrous. Another one I thought was notoriously awful was SUPERMAN BEGINS. Lex Luther makes a whole island out of kryptonite that he expects to make him a land magnate billionaire somehow, despite it being a total shithole. The brilliance of this plan being that Superman can't go there and apprehend him due to the properties of the land. This means that we are watching a movie about an indestructible superhero who is the ONLY person on planet Earth who can't help. One fighter jet or helicopter is all it takes to save mankind. Anyone except Superman it would seem.
  15. There are three potential positives about this film - it's not another Snow White movie, it is directed by the man responsible for Dead Snow and Gemma Arterton is wearing leather. Synopsis: 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world. In an interview Arterton has said it has a 'Tarantino feel' which could mean anything really. From the above shot it reminds me most of Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm but hopefully it doesn't turn out like that film. The most promising Arterton film of 2012 is shaping up to be Neil Jordan's vampire film, Byzantium, where she and Saoirse Ronan play mother and daughter vampires. Sounds like it could be a modern Daughters of Darkness.
  16. It seems to be based on the classic Journey to the West fable (aka Monkey). Chow's last film, CJ7, didn't seem to get a release in the UK (or if it did I missed it) so hopefully this will as his movies tend to be a lot of fun. I'm not 100% sold on the trailer but it should at least be memorable.
  17. Based on a true story of one family's struggle during the boxing day tsunami of 2004, the film is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona and stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. Although the below trailer is dubbed in Spanish the proper film is in English. The tsunami effects are supposedly all practical too rather than CGI. http://youtu.be/gTPE3xUnOY8 Intertitle translation: On December 26, 2004, a devastating tsunami hit the coast of Southeast Asia. The lives of thousands of families around the world changed forever. This is the true story of one of these families.
  18. John Hillcoat (The Road and The Proposition) is a great filmmaker so it is always interesting to see what he is making next. That next film comes in the form of Lawless an American bootlegging film starring Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf. Most of the pre-publicity for the film was about their supposed behind the scenes punch-up but we finally have a trailer so can actually talk about the film. Synopsis: LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County in the World”, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave. The film also co-stars Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska and Gary Oldman. A great cast, great director, interesting story and great setting should, hopefully, make for a great film. The trailer certainly looks promising enough.
  19. Granted this is not the most exciting news or picture but here is the logo for recently renamed feature, Brave.
  20. Won't let me add a Pixar tag But yeah, not the best production values but seems like a lot of heart went into this.
  21. I wasn't sure where to put this but I think a good discussion could be had here since a lot of us either have large collections or used to. In the transition of moving from a house to an apartment a few years ago I had to really cut down on my collection or at least the space it took up, it was basically becoming really annoying having so much stuff. So I bought a big metal dvd storage case that holds 1000 dvds and have thrown out the amaray cases but kept the covers/inserts in storage. I use a spreadsheet on my PC to keep track/search for a particular film so as I know where it is in my case. Has anyone ever been brave enough to just throw out all packaging (even for special editions) ? I'm nowhere near as hardcore as I used to be when it comes to watching/collecting films and having a huge collection on display has no real appeal to me anymore, I guess dealing with a lot less space has made me more appreciative of it. Of course I enjoy watching films and always will but I find myself going more digital with either downloads or watching on netflix/lovefilm and the cinema of course. Anyone gone completely digital yet ? Obviously people have different ways of handling their collections so I was just wondering in general what the folk of rllmuk do
  22. No trailer yet but we do have a bunch of photos. Synopsis: Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, "Seven Psychopaths". Billy (Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Hans (Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie’s unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale. It has a great cast - Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Abi Cornish, Tom Waits and Olga Kurylenko - and if Martin McDonagh can deliver another script as good as In Bruges we should be in for a treat.
  23. Judd Apatow returns to the director's chair with This is 40, a look at the lives of Pete and Debbie a few years after the events of Knocked Up. The film stars Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy Albert Brooks, Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Lena Dunham, Ryan Lee, Charlene Yi, and Wyatt Russell. It is released at the end of December.
  24. Synopsis: Based on the Don DeLillo novel of the same name, it follows a young millionaire during a 24-hour odyssey on his way to get a haircut in Manhattan. NSFW Although Robert Pattinson has starred in a number of serious films in the last couple of years I think it is this film that will be the one that separates him from the Twilight franchise. It is a very short teaser but certainly looks intriguing.
