Clip du Jour: A fake trailer for a super-dark 'Archie Comics' movie I'd totally see

RiverdaleIt turns out that beneath its sunny, “gee-whiz!” exterior, Riverdale — the fictional home of clean-cut comic characters Archie Andrews, Veronica Lodge, and Betty Cooper, among others — is a den of sin…at least, according to the following fan-made trailer for a fake movie called Riverdale, which may best be described as “Archie meets Skins meets Requiem for a Dream.” But don’t think that means the clip is some lame parody — as a matter of fact, it’s got impressively high production values and an interesting, non-jokey tone (though much of it will make you laugh out loud, especially if you were ever an Archie fan). If Riverdale were made into a full-length motion picture, I’d definitely check it out on its opening weekend. See for yourself:  READ FULL STORY

This week in trailers: 'The Hangover Part II' behaves badly, 'Paul' and 'Bad Teacher' ask you to pardon their French

hangover2_180.jpg?w=180&h=135Time to plug in the headphones, folks: There’s enough bad language in this week’s trailers to make your coworkers think you’ve got Andrew Dice Clay hiding out in your cubicle. (So that’s where he is!) First up, a teaser for The Hangover Part II — 100 percent profanity-free, but still dirty-feeling enough that you might want to Purell your monitor after you take a gander. Next, we’ve got Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz respectively swearing up a blue streak in red band spots for Paul and Bad Teacher, both of which star horny, preternaturally skinny creatures looking for a good time.

This week's trailers: 'Something Borrowed' and a new 'Thor'

something-borrowed_180.jpg?w=180&h=135What? Just two trailers this week? And one of them is just a new version of a trailer we’ve already seen? Clearly, we’ve done something to anger the trailer gods, everyone. We must offer them a sacrifice. Perhaps a link to one of our all-time favorite blissfully bad trailers to prove our gratitude? Tune in next week to see if it works. In the meantime, check out this week’s offerings, small in number but great in impact: A first look at the Kate Hudson rom-com Something Borrowed, and a second look at the upcoming Thor. Watch them after the jump! READ FULL STORY

This week's trailers: 'X-Men: First Class,' 'Super 8,' 'Captain America,' and more

The Super Bowl is always a super week for movie trailers: Movie studios like nothing better than a captive audience of 111 million amped-up TV watchers to show off their latest wares. During last Sunday’s game, we got peeks at J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, the new Captain America, and Thor, to name a few. But the week still had more goods in store, with first looks at movies like X-Men: First Class, Arthur, and Disney’s Prom. Check them all out below, and then sound off in the comments about which ones are going on your to-watch list! READ FULL STORY

'Captain America' Super Bowl trailer: How's the Red Skull look?

Of all the trailers that debuted during the Super Bowl, I was most excited about the 30-second spot for Captain America: The First Avenger. It was cool to get a better sense of the movie’s look. (Apparently, this is going to  be the muddiest comic book movie since Swamp Thing.) However, one part of the trailer stuck out to me: The half-a-millisecond appearance of Cap’s arch-nemesis, the Red Skull. A superhero movie is only as good as its villain, and considering that Hugo Weaving already played one of the great modern action-movie Big Bads (Agent Smith in The Matrix), my hopes are pretty high. But there’s every possibility that the Skull could look ridiculous onscreen. (See: the Red Skull in the better-left-forgotten 1990 Captain America, who looked like an evil fascist muppet.)

Super Bowl XLV: Best and worst commercials?

Presenting… Your Super Bowl Commercials of 2011, brought to you by Eminem. He LOST HIMSELF in not one but two major ad campaigns this year. During the first quarter, Claymation Eminem quenched his thirst with a refreshing Brisk iced tea; then just before halftime, super-intense human Eminem delivered a cross between a eulogy and a giant “eff you, pay attention” on behalf of the city of Detroit. And you thought he didn’t do commercials.

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne finally had to find out what a Bieber was, Adrien Brody serenaded some crying/orgasmic women (Stella Artois), Faith Hill’s rack is huge (Teleflora), Timothy Hutton is really, really into Tibetan fish curry (Groupon.com), and Kim Kardashian’s ass (Shape-Ups) is ass usual. Plus, so many movie trailers, including J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8, Terra Nova, Thor, Cowboys & Aliens — starring Danny Craig and Indy Ford — Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and a first look at Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger. My five favorite commercials, after the break. READ FULL STORY

This week's trailers: 'Soul Surfer,' 'Beginners,' and more from the 'Jackass' crew

For those of us on the East Coast, it’s a blizzard out there. (Or, at least, was.) So let’s live vicariously through the Soul Surfer trailer and pretend we’re in Hawaii, shall we? This week, EW exclusively brought you the trailer for the tropical film, starring AnnaSophia Robb as a teen surfer who gets attacked by a shark and Carrie Underwood as a youth group leader. Plus, the trailer for Peep World, Beginners, and some more dangerous/disgusting fun from the Jackass gang. Watch them below! READ FULL STORY

This week's trailers: 'Scream 4', 'Red Riding Hood', and a homicidal tire

Something creepy this way comes: In this week’s trailers, Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox Scream again, Amanda Seyfried dons her Red Riding Hood, Ewan McGregor suffers a mysterious illness that makes anything but Perfect Sense, and a desert is terrorized by an inexplicably rage-filled Rubber tire. Click at your own risk!


What was your favorite movie trailer of 2010?

In the parlance of baseball, movie trailers are like spring-training rookie phenoms. With only a teasing glimpse, all you can see is potential. It’s too soon to tell if the young slugger can’t hit a curveball or if your young ace’s 97-mph heater is as straight as an arrow. All that matters is the promise of greatness. It’s the same reason I love trailers: I know deep-down that 75 percent of these films will ultimately disappoint me, but right now, four months before its release, I can let myself believe that Brooklyn’s Finest is the next Crash, that Salt is the next Bourne Identity. It’s why I’m never late for a movie in the theater, and why I roll my eyes when the lady behind me whines, “Another trailer?” Yes! Another trailer. Another spark of hope. Another movie to get excited for, months before its flaws can be identified and dissected.

In 2010, there were dozens of trailers that, sadly, delivered more than the full-length features that played after them in the theater. Some of them ultimately became the all-stars I hoped they could be. In the spirit of the Oscars, here are my top-5 trailers, in no particular order. READ FULL STORY

This week's trailers: Bathing suits, underpants, and teenage butt-kicking

Does Natalie Portman’s CGI bathing suit in Your Highness land on the naughty or the nice list? Or does it matter, since we all apparently checked it twice, anyway? The Danny McBride/James Franco comedy wasn’t the only trailer gracing the web-waves this week, though it was probably the most fun: READ FULL STORY
