Year One – International Trailer

Zed (Jack Black) and Oh (Michael Cera) … those names are going to get a lot more popular this summer.

Zed is the hunter. Oh, a gatherer. And together they were destined for greatness. Problem is, they’re lazy. So they get kicked out of their tribe and have to go off on their own. Will they die? Probably not, after all they’re the stars. And for all you undereducated kids out there … This isn’t based on a true story, even though everything in Hollywood seems like it. So don’t go scanning the encyclopedias at school for the neanderthal heroes Zed and Oh … do they still have encyclopedias at school.

Year One opens everywhere June 19

I Love You, Beth Cooper – International Trailer

This is why people like John Hughes are held with astronomical regard over John Tucker.

Kids, high school isn’t like this. You don’t tell the most popular girl in your grade (especially if she’s Hayden Panettiere) that you love her during your graduation speech. And she certainly does not respond in the way Panettiere’s character Beth Cooper does in the trailer for the new film, I Love You, Beth Cooper, due out July 10th.

I’m all down for a little bit of fantasy and imagination, even if it means constructing bright white lies about the social experiences only Hollywood can dream of. However, something bothers me about movies that look like they take place in high school, but are actually set in unrealistic super dimensions where a screenwriter’s unusual gimmick can steer

Brüno – International Red Band Restricted Trailer

Let’s get one thing straight … Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan was the funniest film in 2006.

But from the looks of Brüno … especially the red band restricted trailer … nothing looks straight.

Created from Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Da Ali G Show,” this gay Austrian supermodel is ready for the runway? Nope, thankfully that’s not all. Bruno also makes his way to Sears so the uncomfortable social humor can begin. Now, does this look as funny as Borat? No. But I can hope.

And It’s getting an R-rating, instead of NC-17. reports the R is for “pervasive strong and crude sexual content, graphic nudity and language.” Brüno will be released on July 10

Public Enemies – International Trailer

Sweet home, Chicago. Since moving to Portland I’ve only be been to Chicago once. Well, seeing Johnny Depp in Public Enemies better give me flashbacks.

Michael Mann is behind the film with Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard added to the cast. It’s all about John Dillinger, the bank robber that was so prolific that he made J. Edgar Hoover’s number one target.

Oh and the cast isn’t done … Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham) and Alvin Karpis (Giovanni Ribisi) are part of Dillinger’s gang, and Billy Crudup plays J. Edgar Hoover.

This is one trailer I haven’t seen, and actually I’m not going to start now. The reason trailers exist is to get butts in the seats. My butt will already be in this seat. So the only thing I

Moon – Trailer

Moon is a new sci-fi film starring Sam Rockwell. It will have a limited release, but it will certainly be one of the most unique genre films of the summer. Though devoid of Shia LeBouf, McG, or killer robots, it’s going to bring a whole different type of futuristic awesome to cinema.

In the film, a space engineer (Rockwell), is stationed at a base on the moon for an extensive amount of time. Living in complete isolation, his only communication is with his super-computer GERTY (voiced by Kevin Spacey). With only weeks left in his contract, Sam begins to see some “strange things.” You’ll have to watch the trailer to find out exactly what (which is a bit of a spoiler, I must say).

I was lucky enough to catch a screening

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – Trailer

So, it appears Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is heading to college. After everything that happened to the world after the Autobot/Deception war, I’m glad to see everyone there’s been a return to normalcy. Actually, no I’m not. But at least they managed to squeeze in the Pointer Sister’s “I’m So Excited!” Wait, I’m not really happy about that either.

So what does have me excited about the sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (due out June 24, 2009)?
Oh, hello Megan Fox … it’s good to see you again.
And it does look like they are allowing us to see more of the battles. The first Transformers seemed to opt for SCS (Shakey Camera Syndrome) a little too much

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian – International Trailer

Do you expect better things with this sequel, or are you just happy with more of the same?

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian opens May 22, 2009.

Yes, Ben Stiller is back, and so is Robin Williams. Do either of these guys make you laugh lately? And if the answer is yes, I want reasons. What movie in the last 2-3 years had you rolling in the aisles?

Along with those men are Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Steve Coogan, Jonah Hill, and Hank Azaria.
Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart is my hope here. She can rarely do wrong.

Here’s the thing, two monkeys slapping Stiller just doesn’t make me laugh (even though he may deserve it).
And I am still cringing from the little Einsteins saying, “That’s the way

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – Trailer

Yo Joe indeed. If knowing is half the battle, then we’re on our way.

Destro, Zartan, The Baroness against Hawk, Duke and Snake Eyes is just a few months away.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra opens August 7, 2009.

I hope. I hope my childhood toys are there to greet me with a smile. I find I’m so exicted I can barely sit still.

I couldn’t afford Transformers as a kid, but if I recall one G.I. Joe figure was $2.62 (tax). And with my $5 a week allowance, I was always on the verge of picking up two a week.

For the trailer itself, it looks pretty slick. I really don’t know what to expect. While I want to think back on the cartoons fondly, I am also realizing that we can’t just
