Walking Dead Promo

A couple of weeks ago, a teaser for Season 2 of AMC‘s The Walking Dead made its way online that most people thought was the real deal. As it turned out, it was actually fan-made. While it may have fooled the masses, there’s no fooling around now, as AMC has officially released the first promo/teaser for Season 2 through their official website. Hit the jump to watch Rick Grimes bash in some zombie skulls in the new teaser!

Harry Potter 7_pt 2

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, we experienced a film that, while quite enjoyable, struggled to exist on its own as a single-film entity since the story had been intentionally cut off right before the climactic final act when things really take off. It was certainly a bold move for the creative minds behind the Deathly Hallows films to just give the audience half of a movie with Part 1 and expect us to enjoy and critique it without a real ending. They succeeded well enough, but it made it really difficult to judge the film by itself when the story was incomplete.

When all is said and done, Part 1 can not be truly appreciated without Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 – the epic payoff to not only all the slow-paced meandering we endured with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) in the last film, but to the entire series as a whole. Everything we have experienced with these characters over the last decade has all led to this film, and I am pleased to say that it is indeed a very satisfying conclusion to what has to be the most ambitious film series ever created.

John Carter

“When I saw you, I believed it was a sign that something new can come into this world.”

A teaser trailer for the much talked about film adaptation for Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic novel, John Carpenter of Mars, has finally arrived online. Simply titled John Carter (seriously, what is it with poor title choices recently?), the story follows the title character as he is mysteriously transported to Mars where he finds himself thrown into the middle of a war amongst the inhabitants of the planet that ultimately need his heroics to save the day. While I have not read the story personally, Disney’s trailer for the film looks impressive. Check it out below!

The Thing_2011

After months and months of hearing about the direct prequel to John Carpenter‘s The Thing, a trailer is finally available for the film – which is is also called The Thing for some strange reason. I really would like to hear the logic on this, since the trailer vaguely hints at the fact that it is a prequel, making this look more like a straight up remake for those not in the know (did I mention the title doesn’t help?). That aside, the trailer is actually quite awesome, not to mention terrifying. You can check it out after the jump!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The third full trailer for Rupert Wyatt‘s Rise of the Planet of the Apes has hit the web, and it is definitely the best one yet. The trailer shows quite a bit more of the character moments with Caesar, and it does not disappoint. I am really surprised by how good this looks, and if the finished product is even half as good as the trailers 20th Century Fox has given us, we’re in for a great ride with this one. Check out the full trailer after the jump!

The Hobbit_Serkis_Jackson

It’s been three months since Peter Jackson posted his first video blog chronicling the beginning of production on The Hobbit films. Ever since then, fans have been waiting patiently for entry #2, and today Jackson finally came through and posted it online via his Official Facebook page.

In the video we get to take a look at some location scouting, as well as Andy Serkis doing some Gollum scenes and even a bit of Second Unit directing. We also get a couple of VERY brief glimpses of other new scenes being shot, so don’t blink or you might miss them! Hit the jump to check it out!
