Underworld Awakening (dir. Mans Marlind, Bjorn Stein)
Summer 2012 is nowhere near as massive as Summer 2011. But you know, that may be a blessing in disguise. Summer 2012 still has more than its fair share of films to look forward to, and the big ones are especially noteworthy. How can a summer with The Avengers, Prometheus, and The Dark Knight Rises Possibly go wrong? Well, it can't. So, even though Summer 2012 isn't as over-packed as Summer 2011 one, there's still plenty for film fans to salivate over. So without further ado, let's get started! Part Three of Tmp's Prelude to 2012 begins right now!
Summer 2012 is certainly kicking off with a bang. Releasing everywhere on May 4 is The Avengers, the long awaited superhero film putting all our favorite Marvel characters (minus Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil, and all the ones you Really like) into one team. The build up for The Avengers has been intense, with over four years and five films of investment, »

You gotta figure that given the Japanese’s love for all things sci-fi, “Battleship” and “John Carter” should do reasonably well in that country. The studio probably realizes that, too, because here are two specially made Japanese trailers for the two upcoming sci-fi films. Japanese movie star Tadanobu Asano is actually in the cast of Peter Berg’s “Battleship”, and although he’s featured in the trailer, I’m surprised he’s not featured more. Seems like a wasted opportunity to pander to the home crowd if you ask me. “John Carter” opens March 9, 2012, followed by “Battleship” on May 18, 2012. »
Universal Pictures released a new “Battleship” Japanese trailer that features some new shots not seen in the American trailers. The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Asano Tadanobu and Liam Neeson. Here is the official synopsis: Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro's classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone's superior (and Sam's father), Admiral Shane. »
Because impending New Years festivities and post-Christmas blues means I’m forced to reach for anything that even resembles post-able movie news, even foreign trailers that hit the net days and days ago, here are two Japanese trailers for two big-budget sci-fi films that will either do relatively well or sink like stones once they hit theaters. Please to take a gander at slightly new-ish trailers for Peter Berg’s alien-invadin’-on-the-waters flick “Battleship” and Andrew Stanton’s alien-fightin’-on-Mars-though-we’re-too-scared-to-actually-use-the-word-Mars adventure “John Carter” (formerly “of Mars”). Enjoy, fans of sci-fi movie trailers from the land of the rising sun. “John Carter” and the boys arrive first on March 9, 2012, followed by “Battleship” on May 18, 2012. Of the two flicks, “Battleship” is the one with the honest to goodness Japanese movie star amongst its cast in Tadanobu Asano. (In case, you know, you were wonderin’.) »
If you're on the fence about Universal's Battleship, that being Peter Berg's Michael Bay-style 'humans versus aliens' movie which will hit next year, this Japanese trailer probably won't help make up your mind. It has a few small new bits of footage, yes, and also a bit more footage of Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano. But otherwise it's still the same big, goofy battle movie. Check it out below. Sure, 'big goofy battle movie' might not be a bad thing, especially in this case. And I still suspect that Peter Berg might have a bit more up his sleeve than trailers have suggested so far. In this particular case I think the Japanese trailer voiceover actually adds to the film's appeal -- makes Battleship seem like an earthbound companion piece ot the recent big Space Battleship Yamato movie that hit Japan last year. Battleship opens on May 18 2012. Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, »

With the new year approaching, it’s time to start looking ahead to the films of 2012 – and with that in mind, we’re bringing you two new international trailers for a couple of films that people are already anticipating: Battleship and John Carter. The “international” part should clue you in that these are trailers for foreign markets (in this case, both are for Japan), so they feature some Japanese voiceovers and subtitles, but everything else (including some new footage) is in English. First up, a new trailer for John Carter. The film’s Us debut is getting ever closer (it hits theaters on March 9th) and this new clip has us pretty interested in finally seeing it. The effects look decent and the story of Carter (Taylor Kitsch), a war-weary...

The Japanese are notorious for making even the worst of movies look good. Need proof? Check out Foy's Syfy and Asylum artwork piece here. The first trailer for Battleship played like a joke. The second was far more interesting. Now the Japanese version has come and officially sparked our interest.
Based on Hasbro's classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar »

Peter Berg’s return behind the camera for a feature film is one that I’ve been waiting a while for, and settling on the Battleship project, the film adaptation of the Hasbro board game, was definitely an interesting choice that a lot of people were surprised by. The concept in itself seemed a little unimaginable.
But when the first teaser trailer debuted back in the summer, followed by the second earlier this month, we got a look at the awesome scope of the film, and it looks set to be a brilliant blockbuster when it arrives next summer. We’ve now got a great new Japanese trailer to share with you, via ComingSoon.net, that features plenty of excellent footage of buildings collapsing, giant ships flying out of the water, and much, much more on that sort of scale.

I want Battleship to be crazy, ridiculous, and (most importantly) fun. Basically the Transformers experience with a higher ceiling. I see that potential in the trailers we have seen so far, but there is no footage that cannot be made better by enthusiastic Japanese voiceover. A Japanese trailer for Battleship hit the web over the weekend with new footage. My optimism is not greater, but sustained at a high level. Paramount is billing the board game adaptation as "an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force." Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam Neeson star in the Peter Berg-directed feature. Battleship opens May 18, 2012. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer, plus a director's commentary on a previous trailer. Japanese trailer via Bleeding Cool: IGN sat down with Berg to talk about the last Battleship trailer. »

How do you say "I sunk your battleship" in Japanese? It probably won't matter, since from the looks of it Peter Berg's movie based on the classic board game won't be using the tagline famous from all the commercials we remember seeing as a kid. But you're welcome to still think it while you watch the new, Japanese-subtitled trailer for Battleship, which found its way online this slow weekend. THe actors are still speaking their English-language dialogue, and there are a few new scenes included, so you can learn some stuff not featured in the most recent domestic trailer. But there's also a very intense Japanese voiceover, so you can get the appropriate international flavor. Check it out below. If you're spending this holiday with grandparents who remember World War II, you might ask them if they see the same irony here that I do-- an American movie about »
Here’s another trailer (From Japan) for the boardgame adaptation Battleship, which is directed by Peter Berg and stars Rhianna, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgård and Liam Neeson. The film tells the story of an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race is known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth, on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans…

Battleship comes to theaters May 18th, 2012 and stars Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Reila Aphrodite, Rihanna, Josh Pence, Peter MacNicol. The film is directed by Peter Berg. »
A Japanese trailer for Peter Berg's Battleship has popped up online and just skimming through it looking for a couple of screen captures it looks like it is exactly the same kind of film as Transformers only this is an extraordinarily loose adaptation of a board game (which makes me feel stupid just writing) and doesn't have any matter of built-in audience. Starring Taylor Kitsch, Tom Arnold, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Hamish Linklater, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and Josh Pence, Battleship is set to hit theaters on May 18, 2012 and of the twenty films I included in a recent poll asking readers "If You Could See One of These 20 Upcoming 2012 Releases Today, which One Would It Be?" Battleship is second to last with only five votes, just ahead of the three earned by Wrath of the Titans. Give this new trailer a watch and tell me if it makes you more »

If you want a helping of explosions with your holiday festivities, then we have a treat for you. Following up on a new theatrical trailer for Battleship, another international Japanese trailer has been unveiled. There is a bit more of Rihanna‘s acting debut here and a new look at a battleship vs. alien ship fight scene. It all looks like some of the dumbest stuff ever put to screen, but at least Peter Berg is a more competent director than Michael Bay, so there is still some hope for what looks like a psuedo-sequel to Transformers.
Below the new trailer, we also have a piece from IGN where our director takes over 17 minutes to explain himself regarding the new trailer. It is quite hilarious to seem him justify some of the stupidity going on. Check them both out below for the film starring Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, »

"She works hard for the money," Donna Summer once sang, and just as it was the case in 1983, pop stars these days have to work their butts off to earn those album purchases, downloads and concert ticket sales in this age of YouTube, X-Box and Angry Birds.
But while some singers identify with the Protestant work ethic espoused by Donna, there are others who, as Bruno Mars puts it, “don’t feel like doing anything [and] just wanna lay in my bed.” And it’s not always only those who are hardworking who find success, as the popularity of Bruno proves. Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it.
So, who’s working hard and who’s not? In the spirit of Christmas, we decided to put together a pop star naughty and nice list for Santa.
