Kick Ass Trailer

I used to read comic books in my youth, which has resulted in me becoming a big fan of those type of films, but in all honesty I've never heard of Kick Ass.

I'm sure that it's probably a very good read and judging from this trailer it looks to be a lot of fun and definitely unique and interesting.

Not to mention the buzz for the film has been outstanding.

Kick Ass is directed by Matthew Vaughn of Layer Cake fame and stars Nicolas Cage and Aaron Johnson. Kick Ass is scheduled for release the 16th of April 2010.



Clash of the Titans 2010 - Trailer

Here's the new trailer for The Clash of the Titans remake due out in 2010.

Unfortunately, I'm not too impressed.

It's just a teaser trailer however, so there is a chance that it might still be a good movie. I have fond memories of the first film.

Even though it wasn't a particularly good film.

Even in my youth I knew it wasn't very good. I also remembered that the studio which distributed the film was hoping for a Star Wars like reception at the box office.

That didn't happen.

It did however, have the super cool special effects of Ray Harryhausen. I actually have a signed copy of the dvd from Harryhausen from a signing we had at Laser Blazer.



This new film is directed by Louis Leterrier from The Incredible Hulk fame. It also stars Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes.

Clash of the Titans is scheduled for release on the 26th of March, 2010.

Avatar Full Length Trailer

Here's the first full length trailer for the James Cameron film Avatar, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. This full length trailer gives us some of the fascinating back story and plot of this ambitious 3D film project.

But what has me most excited about this movie is that it marks the theatrical return of arguably the greatest action director of our lifetime.

That opinionated statement is supported here, as we get a glimpse of the incredible action sequences and special effects that Avatar promises to deliver. Even in it's present state it looks incredible. But people who have actually seen the so-called "immersive 3D technology" in the film have called it ground breaking and revolutionary.



Avatar is scheduled for worldwide release on December 18, 2009.

If the reader is craving more, here is the original teaser trailer for the film that debuted back in August of 2009.

ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown Commercials

I don't know what it is but I literally grab my stomach laughing and tear up when these commercials for ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown air.

Every time.

It's well documented that I am a sports freak, but I think these videos are hilarious even for non-football fans. These broadcasters aren't even actors, but they really have great comic timing. I also appreciate the production value and originality of the pieces.

I mean, in general ESPN has the BEST commercials. But these two promos REALLY bust me up.




Love that delivery and last line by Chris Berman.

This next promo really plays to the media savvy of former National Football League star Keyshawn Johnson.



Again, watching Chris Berman's moment at the end of this commercial KILLS me!


ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown airs on Sundays on ESPN and ESPNHD at 11:00 A.M. Eastern Time.
