A Serious Man Trailer

I'm not sure what to make of the new Coen Brothers trailer.

Which is usually a good thing when it comes to a Coen brother film.

One thing I know for sure is that this trailer is HIGHLY unsettling to watch.



I'm hoping it's a dark comedy but this thing looks like it can turn slapstick silly on a dime and profoundly dramatic in even less then that.

A Serious Man is scheduled for release October 2, 2009.





Fantastic Mr. Fox Trailer

I enjoy Wes Anderson's movies. Although usually overrated his works tend to be quirky and unique which seems to be the case of his upcoming film The Fantastic Mr. Fox

The film is based on the book by Roald Dahl and is a stop motion animated film.



The cast includes George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Wes Anderson regulars Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson.

The film is tentatively scheduled for release November 13, 2009.

Tron Legacy Teaser Trailer

Although Tron was a popular video game in my time I actually never saw the movie. If I remember correctly the movie wasn't even a huge hit. So it's surprising, to say the least, that they are releasing a sequel 28 years later.

The film is already releasing viral sites to help spread the word. At the 2009 Comic-con in San Diego they released this footage from the film featuring original Tron cast member Jeff Bridges.



Impressive. IMAX 3D. Maybe I'll check out the original film on DVD and see if it's something I can get into.

Tron Legacy is scheduled for release sometime in 2010.





Where the Wild Things Are Featurette

Here's an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming Where the Wild Things Are film directed by Spike Jonze. This featurette debuted at the 2009 Comic-con in San Diego and features the insights of author Maurice Sendak on the high profile project.



If your not familiar with the source material here's a nice video presentation of the classic children's story.



Where the Wild Things Are is scheduled for release October 16, 2009
