The highlight of going to see Terminator: Salvation this weekend was sadly not Christian Bale, but the trailer for 9.
The trailer is available on Apple Trailers in HD, and I highly recommend that you watch it. Better yet, sneak into the trailers for Terminator before going to see another movie. It’s worth seeing on the big screen.
The movie is an animated film but is by no means a children’s movie. The IMDb synopsis says it’s,
A post-apocalyptic nightmare in which all of humanity is threatened.
The movie follows 9, an inanimate rag doll come to life (and voiced by Elijah Wood), as he finds others of his kind surviving after an apocalyptic event that wipes out the human race.
The movie will be released on 9/9/09 and also features the voices of Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly and Crispin Glover.
With possibly the greatest domain name ever, the promotional site for the movie Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story has some goodies for fans. Digital bobbleheads, videos of stars like Will Ferrell, Maroon 5, Jewel, and Lyle Lovett talking about how much they love Cox. The site also has ecards like the one featuring stars John C. Reilly and Jenna Fischer below.
They also have the trailer, and a handful of music videos from the film. Check out the whole site at EveryoneLovesCox.com.
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story is in theaters now and is a parody of great music biopics like Walk the Line and Ray.
Well, guys! The holiday rush hasn’t quite ended at the malls, but there was a bit of a pre-Christmas one this past weekend over at the cinema!
I gave you my predictions, so now let’s find out how they turned out!
Here comes the final edition of DIB? for 2007!
Charlie Wilson’s War: Tom Hanks as one flashy politician who teams up with a couple of people to covertly assist Afghanistan against Russia. Co-starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as a government agent and Julia Roberts as an equally flashy Texas socialite, it gives us an in-depth view into the whole deal. Will It Bomb? Three A-list actors in a plot that could have been a film before a film was even thought of! It’ll end up in the high-to-middle section of the Top 10. Did It Bomb? Hey! It managed to crawl up the ranks and make it to the #4 slot, earning $9.62 million. Outcome: Score! 1 out of 5
National Treasure: Book of Secrets: In this sequel to the hugely popular flick, Nicolas Cage returns as treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin Gates, and this time he’s out for more than gold, jewels, or precious artifacts! He wants to see what kind of involvement one of his ancestors allegedly had with the Lincoln assassination plot, and he gets into business that he probably shouldn’t be dabbling with. Will It Bomb? The first movie did very well; we needed a new action/adventure; this was the only sequel released this weekend. This will get into at least the Top 3. Did It Bomb? Absolutely not! Obviously, a stroke of luck wasn’t the only thing clinching this picture’s success! It shot up to #1, making some cash! $45.5 million, to be exact! Outcome: Score! 2 out of 5
