Trailer Trashin’: What’s Happening in the 10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer?

Hello again, dear readers. We’re in the middle of January, and it’s still slim pickings in terms of new movies, although I plan on checking out the new horror movie The Boy this weekend. But there are still cool new trailers for me to watch and analyze. This week’s column takes a look at the first trailer for the upcoming science-fiction mystery thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Premise: Waking up from a car accident, a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) finds herself in the basement of a man (John Goodman) who says he’s saved her life from a chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable.

My take: In this day and age of 24/7 media coverage, it’s nearly impossible for a film to truly sneak up and surprise us. One film that did manage that was Cloverfield (2008), the found-footage giant monster film from producer J. J. Abrams,

If you thought Godzilla was the only mega-sized Kaiju gearing up for a return to the big screen, then think again. Read on for the first details about a Gamera reboot, headed our way in 2015!

In 'Apollo 18,' It's Not Just the Moon That's Made of Cheese
There’s a reason the Weinstein Co. didn’t screen their latest sci-fi horror opus, “Apollo 18” for critics -- its new "Blair Witch"-on-the-moon pic is a crushing bore. Launched in 1972, Apollo 17 was Nasa’s final mission to the moon. So the conceit of “Apollo 18” is that authentic raw footage was mysteriously uploaded to lunartruth.org depicting the trials and tribulations of a top-secret subsequent Apollo mission. Landing on the lunar surface, two astronauts are immediately vexed by communication difficulties. Something is out there, manifested by a lunar rock that seems to move
