Can't Wait...

Two awesome new film trailers took the interwebz by storm this week. Well three, but I'm only going to focus on the two that really got my juices going.

1st: The Dark Knight Rises


Hoooooly feces that got me all tingly. That kid singing the nation anthem all ominous as fuck...how cool is that?! I'm a little worried about Bane's voice and Nolan's tendency to make characters sound quasi retarded, but Bane looks pretty badass IMO...like a Mexican wrestler from hell with a cool/fashionable coat (dear Santa, I'd like a Bane jacket for Christmas please). At first I kind of didn't like seeing Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordin-Levitt in the same trailer because it made me think Inception 2 but I got over that when I realized Cotillard and Anne Hatheway are both in the this and their combined hotness already makes this one of the best films of 2012.  I'm super stoked about Catwoman's speech about striking back at Bruce Wayne and his 1% pals. Is this #OCCUPY GOTHAM? Should be sweet.


2nd: Prometheus

Ridley Scott. Alien Prequel. ENOUGH SAID. Yeah I know it's not supposed to be a direct prequel to Alien but I don't care dammit. It's in the same universe continuity wise and Ridley Scott has crafted some damn fine Sci-Fi way back in the day...and now he's got the special effects to do whatever the hell he wants! Also, the cast is top tier. Noomi Rapace, Micheal Fassbender, Guy Pearce, the black dude from Thor, Charlize Theron...sick! This is one of the few instances where I'm ok with Hollywood recycling from it's past. This isn't some desperate cash crab remake/re-imagining crap. This looks legitimately awesome.

So I geeked out pretty hard this week. The Hobbit trailer also arrived to great fanfare but it just didn't get me as stoked as these other two. Ian McKellen does look pretty rad as Gandalf though. NO! Must stop nerding out. Alright. Done.

  1. I'm avoiding Dark Knight trailers as much as I can. I'm excited enough and any more and I may actually explode.

  2. Those two movies should be damn good. But until I see them I won't be holding my breath because as you say Scott used to make great sc-fi, he hasn't done anything good in years.

  3. I have to say I'm really excited for the Dark Knight Rises man, more so than I've been for any movies in a long time! I'm pumped for it and the other one sounds class as well mate, they're both worth the watch I reckon.

  4. Hory shit that Batman. Bane's in it, and it's that last movie in that set, Bruce Wayne will probably end up crippled or, more likely, flat-out dead from Bane. Really looking forward to it :D

    Hobbit looks cool too :> As long as it doesn't split into two parts I'd want to see it :D

  6. Really looking forward to the new Batman movie. Anne Hathaway was an odd choice for Catwoman, though.

  8. I hate to sound blasphemous, because the Dark Knight is one of my favorite movies, but the Dark Knight Rises may beat it. Christopher Nolan is a brilliant director, and with Bane in the mix. Fuck. Yes.

  10. Goosebumps man. Goosebumps. "Peas in pod-mouth" actor Bale(I love this guy) and "I-can-watch-you-read-dictionary-allday long" actress Anne hatheway and "no-words-I-just-feel-proud-to-live-in-same-time-as-you" - Nolan. This christmas is truly magical. I had never camped out in front of theater but this time I may.
    Dark knight was taken in Chicago and I was in downtown and simply for no reason I used to walk around that street for 3 months till they completed the filming. But these bouncers never allowed anyone to watch anything to see during the actual filming. .. Loved the movie. :)

  13. I like Catwoman's speech also. Also, I wonder how, if at all, they deal with the Joker in the new film, i.e. a brief mention that he's in Arkham, a shot of Ledger from material that didn't make the final cut of The Dark Knight, etc.
