JJ. Abrams' Super 8 could be something worth waiting for next summer!

Here's a little high brow trailer from our British brethren!

Quote:
The Oscar race for Best Picture is beginning to firm up, and it looks like a battle between new and old. In this corner, you have the cutting-edge charms of The Social Network, with its cast of under-30s (including one of the biggest pop stars in the world), and on the other side of the ring with Harvey Weinstein as cornerman, you've got the decidedly old-school The King's Speech. Colin Firth stars as the stammering King George VI, who hires a speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush) to help him overcome his impediment while his country's on the verge of war, and Helena Bonham Carter is in there, too, hiding her trademarked crazy hair under a tasteful hat. The film killed on the fall festival circuit, and while The Social Network still has everybody buzzing, the more traditional charms of The King's Speech could be powerful — especially with the never-stammering Weinstein ready to shout about it from the rooftops.

It actually looks quite endearing.

Long live the King!

@tsarstepan,
This French police procedural, Inspector Bellamy, starring a very weighty Gerard Depardieu looks quite intriguing.

Jeff Bridges fans and admirers!

He looks most excellently scruffy and gritty in the Coen Brother remake of True Grit:

First there was Shaun of the Dead. Then the boys tackled action films with Hot Fuzz. Now the duo of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg come to America to tackle aliens or perhaps a single alien named Paul:

Happy-Go-Lucky’s Sally Hawkins, who has been reliably, even overwhelmingly appealing in all her recent films, looks like she'll continue her likability streak with Made in Dagenham, based on the true story of the 1968 Ford sewing machinists strike. Hawkins stars as a wife and mother who leads her co-workers out on a strike for equal pay; she's joined by Miranda Richardson as the liberal MP Barbara Castle, Rosamund Pike, Bob Hoskins, and, right at the beginning of the trailer, the soon-to-be zombie-killing Andrew Lincoln. If the film seems to be a bit of a by-the-numbers historical drama trying hard to tap into your sense of justice (the swelling music cue at the one minute and 25 second mark is not subtle at all!), well, we have to confess, it worked on us. (Tears, they may have been formed.) It's sweet and convincing how not quite rousing Hawkins’s speeches are, though she does get off a doozy of a last line: Asked how the strikers will cope if they don't she snaps, "Cope? We’re women, now don’t ask such stupid questions."

@Irishk,
That line caught my ear when it was ceremoniously fired off by Hawkins.

Looking forward to this in the theater and I'm not usually a fan of historical labor pieces.

@tsarstepan,
Do you think it will be kind of Norma Rae-ish?

@Irishk,
I actually never seen Norma Rae other then a few scenes here and there. Obviously it might have some similarities given the labor issue but keep in mind that there might be crossAtlantic differences in terms of labor history and politics.

The oddly spelled Biutiful looks like an enigmatic and surrealistic journey into one man's soul.

Javier Bardum at least based on this trailer looks like an absolute lock on a Lead Acting nomination.

I wish I didn't have to wait for it's late year December release to see this film:
USA 29 December 2010 (limited)

Jon Favreau is turning out to be one heck of a director! Much better turn in his career then in the acting department!

And geekishly goofy titled film Cowboys & Aliens looks like another epic summer blockbuster flick!

Really looking forward to that one, Tsar! So glad they chose aliens instead of zombies, too! Smile

@Irishk,
Supposedly the movie is based on a famous cult set of graphic novels by the same title.

@tsarstepan,
This one is headed our way next summer, too...not sure it'll be much competition for Cowboys & Aliens, though...

@Irishk,
I really like Ryan Reynolds. He has a lot of acting potential. Plays a lot of likable characters very well.

I'm keeping my inner fingers crossed that this one will be an above average summer flick.

Not actually a movie trailer but a trailer for a television series ... nonetheless quite captivating:

HBO's where in the Hell did this one come from series Game of Thrones
Looks stunning!

I put a lot of faith in the recent adaptations of Iron Man and was so relieved with how great these two popcorn flicks came out (Iron Man and Iron Man 2).

Now I'm placing a wager that after seeing the trailer for Thor, a film adaptation on the same Marvel universe as Iron Man will be just as potent a popcorn flick watch despite its lack of a high profile charismatic Robert Downey Jr as the lead that I'll say now that Thor will be distinguish itself with greatness in a very crowded 2011 action blockbuster field.
Thor (2011):

Small sample of the highest profile action films of 2o11:
Battle: Los Angeles (2011)
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
Green Lantern (2011)
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
Sucker Punch (2011)
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
X-Men: First Class (2011)

Anime films at the cinema is a rare sight to see.

This one looks like a community of Takashi Murakami's mind leaped up onto the silver screen and overtook another film's population.

Quote:
Synopsis: Kenji is a teenage math prodigy recruited by his secret crush Natsuki for the ultimate summer job - passing himself off as Natsuki's boyfriend for four days during her grandmother's 90th birthday celebration. But when Kenji solves a 2,056 digit math riddle sent to his cell phone, he unwittingly breaches the security barricade protecting Oz, a globe-spanning virtual world where millions of people and governments interact through their avatars, handling everything from online shopping and traffic control to national defense and nuclear launch codes. Now a malicious AI program called the Love Machine is hijacking Oz accounts, growing exponentially more powerful and sowing chaos and destruction in its wake.
