Uncertainty Trailer

Laugh it up, D-bags: I'm posting a Joseph Gordon-Levitt trailer. It's well known that the dude is one of my favorite actors, so go ahead and chuckle amongst yourselves. The movie is called Uncertainty, and also stars Lynn Collins (I don't know who she is, either).

I've never heard of this movie before my co-writers at GeekTyrant posted about it, but half of it looks awesome. Guess which half - the pregnancy part, or the murder/extortion plot? Check out the trailer for yourself and decide what you think.

New Trailer: The Wolfman

The newest trailer for Joe Johnston's (The Rocketeer, October Sky) The Wolfman was released today, and it's a vast improvement over the first footage we saw a couple months ago. This actually looks pretty solid, but I'm telling you right now: if you're looking for a fantastic werewolf movie, look no further than the epic French masterpiece The Brotherhood of the Wolf. Yes, I know - "French masterpiece" is an oxymoron, except for BotW and the occasional bread loaf.

Irregardlessly-ness-tion (an inside joke, obviously not a real word), Joe Johnston is also directing the upcoming Captain America for Marvel Studios. I'm pretty stoked for it - if he brings the same blatant patriotism to that story as he did to The Rocketeer (one of my favorite films), then we're all in for a treat. Enjoy the trailer for The Wolfman below.

Spike Jonze/Kanye West Short

What's up, guys and girls? It's been a while since I've updated anything on this site, and I promise a Roundup is coming soon.

For now, though, I'll leave you with a short film directed by Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze starring Kanye West. It's pretty freakin' weird, but I'd say worth checking out.

Adrien Brody in Predators

In a weird bit of casting news, Variety reports that Adrien Brody has signed on for the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed upcoming action reboot Predators. Brody will play the main role, the leader of a human group dropped onto the home planet of the Predators and forced to survive.

In another bit of WTF news, The Hollywood Reporter is claiming Topher Grace is close to signing as a dangerous serial killer with an unassuming air about him. I'm hoping this is the turnaround Topher Grace is looking for after the clusterbomb that was Spider-Man 3: it seems like the guy might have a little talent, but I'm not sure this is the right project to showcase it. Who knows? Maybe he just wants to hang out with Adrien Brody in the jungle for a while. After seeing The Brothers Bloom again, I'd be down for that. (Although Mark Ruffalo's character was a lot cooler).
