December Movie Trailer Round Up

31 December 2010 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This month has been one of the best that I can remember for trailers. All the studios were desperate for their trailer to get released before the Christmas holidays and we were inundated with posts. Since I love trailers so much, the inundation was most welcome. In what I am considering making a monthly post, here’s a roundup of all the trailers so far for December which I have embedded below for your viewing pleasure!

I’ve embedded them in the order in which they were released start December 1st to 31st and if I miss any, please let me know and I’ll update the post.

I really want this to be intereactive so make sure you tell us which trailers you liked the best and which you think will be great or terrible movies from what you’ve seen! So, let’s go!

Italian Poster For Greg Mottola’s ‘Paul’

30 December 2010 2:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Here's a new poster for Greg Mottola's new film Paul, which was written by and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The two play geeks on a post Comic Con road trip who encounter an actual alien, voiced by Seth Rogen, and then have to deal with a variety of oddball characters including a couple of Feds played by Jason Bateman and Bill Hader. Once the film is released someone might want to make a catalog of all the geek t-shirts sported by the two characters in the film. We've seen Simon Pegg in cool Empire Strikes Back and Eightball shirts in other images, and Nick Frost in the Ming the Merciless tee seen here. Click the poster below to enlarge, and check out the trailer [1] if you missed it. Finally, here's the synopsis once more. Paul co-stars Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, Blythe Danner, Joe Lo Truglio and Jeffrey Tambor. »

Worst 5 Films of 2010

30 December 2010 12:12 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There are plenty of terrible movies released each year and I don't see most of them.  Either they're not screened for critics, the screening conflicts with a film I want to see more, or I felt that my time could have been better spent another way.  But for all of these terrible films, there's a fine line between "bad" and "insulting".  The Switch is a bad movie, but that's simply because it's unfunny, lacks creativity, and wastes a talented lead actor in Jason Bateman.  But it doesn't offend me.  The five movies that made this year's worst list had to do something that insulted my intelligence and/or my belief that people should be treated equally no matter their sex, race, etc.  These are films I would wish on my worst enemy because then we could bond over having experienced these cinematic travesties. 5.

Owf’s 52 Must See Films of 2011

24 December 2010 11:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Usually around this time of the year we list maybe 10 or 20 films that we think are as absolute ‘Must See’s’ for what the next 12 months of cinema has to offer us but as the clock is ticking ever closer to midnight on 2010, we thought we would challenge ourselves a little further this time around. The question I posed to the Owf staff recently was… can Cinema in 2011 produce enough ‘Must See’ films to hit 52, which would ratio out to be just one film per week? That’s all we are hopeful for here… just one film every Friday that justifies us parting with our ever increasingly important cash in these tough economic times.

Did we manage to find 52? Kind of.

There’s certainly 52 films listed here but once we got to around 30, the whole thing became a struggle and we had to fill it out disappointingly with the usual array of over-budgeted summer spectacles, »

'Paul' trailer: Aliens -- they're just like us!

20 December 2010 12:26 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Aliens: cute or evil? Filmmakers have long bounced between the extraterrestrial tropes, giving us E.T.-style aliens who tug at heartstrings and Ridley Scott-esque aliens who eat heartstrings. But the trailer for upcoming sci-fi comedy Paul, directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland), about a pair of comic book aficionados on a successful expedition to Area 51, promises to fill the void between. Meet Paul, the regular guy alien.

Yes, Paul has an American accent, likes bagels, can show you the universe by touching your forehead. And also – he’s hilarious! The trailer doesn’t provide an overwhelming argument »

New Trailer for 'Paul'

18 December 2010 11:05 AM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

If you're like me, you found the last teaser trailer for Paul a bit lacking. Fortunately, they've released the international trailer at a full 2 1/2 minutes. It has more promise now, a lot more funny moments, and a bit more as to what's going on. Looks like a crude E.T. trying to get home and avoid being killed.

 

There's more Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, which are always a pleasure on screen. We also see Jason Bateman's role as the agent in charge of hunting down Paul. »

2010's kick-ass screen heroines

Plus! The year's most unlikely couples, and crunchiest action sequences

Hit Girl from Kick Ass

Putting the cuteness back into screen violence, Chloe Moretz's 11-year-old hellcat could have skewered The Expendables, The A-Team, The Losers, The Takers and all the other man-meat thrown at us this year into one unsavoury testosterone kebab before the school bus picked her up. Sweet, foul-mouthed and dangerously psychotic, she's the daughter Quentin Tarantino never had, the Christian right's worst nightmare since The Exorcist and the fancy dress costume parents really shouldn't contemplate.

She might have the physique of a malnourished sparrow, but Angelina Jolie's ambiguous rogue agent somehow demolished all pretenders to pick up the Bourne baton. Her role was originally meant for Tom Cruise, but all it took was a nasty Chinese burn from Angelina and he handed it over. And you've got to say, she looked the part, »

Full Paul Trailer Lands Online

17 December 2010 10:23 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in October, we showed you the teaser trailer for Pegg and Frost’s little green alien sweary fella opus, Paul. And now the full trailer is released, we thought we’d share that with you too. Because we’re nice like that. Featuring loads more as yet unseen footage of Seth Rogen’s lude, crude (and often nude) extra terrestrial, you can now look forward to more of Kristen Wiig grabbing Simon Pegg’s crotch, Jason Bateman running through some woods, and even a tiny glimpse of Sigourney Weaver’s hand. We know. Awesome. For those not in the know, the story is a classic tale of two movie nerds heading to Area 51 and then finding a crazy little green alien hitchhiker – a crazy little green alien hitchhiker who The Man want to chase down and scoop the brain out of. Needless to say, hijinks ensue. Lots of them. »

New, Full-Length Paul Trailer Is Here - And It's Funny!

17 December 2010 9:45 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When the first teaser for Paul came out, I was disappointed that it wasn't funnier. But I'm relieved to see this longer trailer for the flick, which makes it look so much better. If the first trailer was a primer to introduce you to the premise - two nerdy protagonists, played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, visit Area 51 and meet alien Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) - then this trailer actually shows off the humor you'd expect from this group. Not to mention that you also get to see more of the awesome cast, like Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, and Kristen Wiig. Watch the new clip when you read more. »
