Trailer Blazer: 'Harry Potter,' 'Jarhead,' 'Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang'

9153__harry_lNew movie trailer footage for you:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Nov. 18) Friday’s episode of Extra featured the premiere of this 45-second teaser from the fourth Potter pic, whose highlights are a bunch of effects shots and a glimpse of Harry’s sweetie, Cho Chang (Katie Leung). By the way, is it just me, or have Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) and Rupert Grint (Ron) not had haircuts since the series began?

Jarhead (Nov. 4) Pro-war movie or anti-war movie? The images in this trailer, featuring Jake Gyllenhaal in the Charlie Sheen role as the naive young recruit, Chris Cooper in the F. Lee Ermey role as the hard-boiled Marine officer, and Jamie Foxx in the Samuel L. Jackson role as the badass, look like the footage from every other combat movie. On the other hand, the musical choices (Bobby McFerrin’s ”Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” Kanye West’s ”Jesus Walks”) imply a sense of irony and doubt that’s at odd with the trailer’s action sequences. See and decide for yourself.

Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang (Sept. 16) The French are suckers for convention-tweaking send-ups of violent genre films, and evidently for legendary movie critic Pauline Kael, whose remark about the primal elements of movie appeal is the source of this film’s title. How else to explain why this film was a hit at Cannes, when, to look at the trailer, it looks just as jokey, incoherent, crude, and violent as everything else Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout) has ever written? Still, this film has crazy-but-brilliant Val Kilmer and Robert Downey Jr. in it; the notion of teaming these two (as a sleuth and a thief pretending to be an actor) is more imaginative than anything else in this clip.

    I don’t mind Rupert Grint’s long hair, but I think Daniel Radcliffe’s is a little to puffy over the ears. Hopefully he gets a cut before the next movie. Anybody know when the new trailer is going to be out?

    When are we going to start seeing Snape and the Slytherins in the promo material? I realize poor McGonagall gets shorter and shorter shrift from the books, but that’s hardly true of the green and silver folks, and some of them have HUGE fan bases.

    Can’t wait for the actual Harry Potter trailer, cause I don’t know how many more times I can watch the Extra clip with Mark McGrath blabbing through it. “Focus Harry” what a Tool!

  • hannah is a palindrome

    Is that what he’s saying! “Focus Harry!”, i thought some jerk was just talking over the clip that i had. God, Mark McGrath does suck. Stupid Sugar Ray!
    I hope it comes out soon. Any ideas on what movie it would be before?

    I swear, by the time the next Harry Potter movie comes out Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint are going to be looking like two cousin Itts. I say they ditch the garage rocker hair and sport mullets. Chant with me: MULLET, MULLET, MULLET…
    As for the Jarhead trailer: it stars Chris Cooper, Jamie Foxx, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Peter Sarsgaard, was directed by Sam Mendes, and has a score by Thomas Newman. How could this movie possibly be bad? I have a feeling that the trailer has more to do with its marketing team trying to target the lucrative males aged 18 to 30 segment.

    Much Love, <3

    You can see a little longer Goblet of Fire trailer without the annoying commentary on Allocine. It’s full screen and fabulous. I think this is the international teaser trailer and then another longer(!?) trailer will debut soon. I hope. I can’t wait. Love the music, too.
