Which Snow White film are you more excited for now? Poll!


Now that we’ve seen trailers for both Mirror, Mirror (the rom-com take on a battle-ready Snow White starring Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, and Armie Hammer) and Snow White and the Huntsman (the darker, more action-filled version starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth), which film’s release are you more eagerly awaiting? Let’s put it to a vote. If you need help, we’ll break it down for you.  READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games' full-length trailer to debut on Monday: What do you hope to see?

This upcoming Monday, the first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games will debut during the Good Morning America broadcast. May the odds be ever in your favor that you’ll get a glimpse of what you’re dying to see, because, let’s face it, there’s plenty.

Since this summer’s teaser trailer (all one second of it) left much to the imagination, there’s a veritable check list of things fans can hope to see come Monday morning. Will the Hunger Games trailer follow in the footsteps of the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘s first (official) intoxicating trailer and go with quick snippets? I’m envisioning Katniss running while we get fast-paced glimpses at the selection, the ceremonies, or the harrowing, pulse-pounding action of the Games themselves. Now imagine them all set to Rue’s lullaby or “The Hanging Tree”? (Insert goosebumps here.) READ FULL STORY

What's your all-time favorite movie trailer?

It’s been said a hundred times before, and it remains true: The best part about going to the movies (well, besides eating $7 candy and actually watching the movie you paid to see) is the trailers. But enjoying trailers has gone well beyond watching roughly 73 of them before your film starts. And if you were a super pop-culture nerd from an early age like me, you enjoyed previews so much you never dared to fast-forward through them on your VHS. (C’mon, you had to watch the FernGully preview before Home Alone started, didn’t you?)

With the winners of the 12th Annual Golden Trailer awards having just been announced (The Social Network, was rightfully rewarded, among other wins, with the Best in Show trophy), and the fact that trailers can be enjoyed online whenever we want, it got me thinking about my all-time favorite trailer.

'Friends With Benefits'/'No Strings Attached' mash-up trailer: Same premise... same movie?!

If you saw the trailer for the upcoming Justin Timberlake/Mila Kunis comedy Friends with Benefits and thought to yourself, “Hmm, haven’t I seen this before, except it starred Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman and it was called No Strings Attached?”, we wouldn’t blame you, friend-o! In fact, you needn’t look further than the meticulously edited FWB/NSA mash-up trailer of the two 2011 comedies to see that just about everything from the glossy love affairs that don’t end in bitterness to the wacky sidekicks to even wackier parents, is strikingly similar. To be fair, we can’t really say how much Friends With Benefits resembles No Strings Attached, since the former has yet to hit the big screen yet (we’ll have to wait until July 22). But as long as the line “I’m warning you, if you take one step closer, I’m never letting you go” doesn’t wind up in Friends With Benefits, I’ll automatically consider it the better of the two.

Watch the full trailer below and see if you can tell the difference between the flicks. Tell me PopWatchers, is this the best been-there-done-that trailer this year or does that title still belong to the Hangover 1 and 2 mash-up? I smell a new Golden Trailer category! READ FULL STORY

'The Social Network' dominates Golden Trailer awards

It didn’t go home with the Oscar for Best Picture, but The Social Network can take some consolation in besting The King’s Speech last night at the 12th annual Golden Trailer awards. The film’s stunning preview, featuring a choral rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep,” became the first coming attraction since The Matrix to win four Golden Trailers, including Best in Show.

The Social Network‘s competitors for the top prize were Blue Valentine, Inception, The King’s Speech, and The Tree of Life. Watch all five below and then vote to see if the Golden Trailer jury got it right: READ FULL STORY

Who will go home with a Golden Trailer?

Tomorrow night in Los Angeles, some of Hollywood’s most talented filmmakers will be feted at the 12th Annual Golden Trailer Awards. You might not recognize the names of the nominees — BLT:AV, The Ant Farm, Seismic Productions — but these are the professionals who make even the most banal drama or the most threadbare comedy look like the next Citizen Kane or Animal House months before the critics and the Internet can salvage it. Sometimes, they do too good a job (See: Sucker Punch or Terminator: Salvation). READ FULL STORY

New, non-bootleg 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' trailer: Still liking what you see?

Looks like that suspiciously high-quality “bootleg” teaser for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo actually was unauthorized: The Red Band trailer, which featured brief snippets of violence and nudity, has been pulled from the internet. In its place, the studio has released an official trailer. The structure is essentially the same: a recording of “Immigrant Song” by Trent Reznor and Karen O plays over quick-cut snippets that basically take you through the whole movie, Femme Fatale-style. The only major difference I could spot was that the new trailer features Robin Wright more prominently — which is never a bad thing. A significant majority of people liked what they saw in the original bootleg teaser; check out the new video below: READ FULL STORY

'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo': Like what you see in the teaser??

The hotly-anticipated American adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo doesn’t hit theaters until December, but the first teaser for the film appeared on the internet over the weekend, in a shaky-cam bootleg video that looked positively wiki-leaked. (Or maybe not: Oh, clever studios and their viral campaigns!) The teaser quick-cuts throughout the movie, plummeting between austere snow-covered landscapes and people covered in blood. But the question is: After reading the book and watching the much-praised Swedish film, does this first peek at the new movie leave you wanting more Tattoo? Rewatch the teaser here, and then take our poll after the jump… READ FULL STORY

'Cars 2' trailer turned into a toy story

Disney has put together a new trailer for Cars 2. Well, check that: It’s not really new, but it was put together — literally. The Pixar peeps built a LEGO reenactment of their first trailer to promote their June 24 release — and their line of LEGOS toys, of course. The child in me is mesmerized — LEGO missiles! LEGO explosions! — and desperately wants to believe this entire clip was shot in some humongous studio hangar where the elaborate LEGO landscapes and toys still exist for play, so don’t ruin it for me if you know that it’s all a clever CGI creation. Take a look. READ FULL STORY

Play Movie Trailer Bingo!

When future generations of the human race turn their cruel, judgmental eyes back to our miserable era here at the dawn of the third millennium, they will discover a veritable Renaissance in one of the most popular global art forms. I am speaking, of course, of the movie trailer, in which the whole expanse of a feature film is distilled into a two-and-a-half minute (or less) kinetic burst of cinematic energy. Trailers are the perfect medium for our relentlessly meta moment: Witness the rise of the Fake Trailer as a cultural force, sometimes deconstructive, sometimes aspirational. (Heck, a few years back, there was an entire big-budget movie made as an ode to the shrill hucksterism and sweet innocence of movie trailers.) READ FULL STORY
