Time Travel Leaves Jake Gyllenhaal Cold In This Source Code Clippublished: 2011-02-18 00:30:15 Author: Josh Tyler
Source Code is a time travel movie, sort of. Think Quantum Leap meets Groundhog Day and you’ll have some idea of what to expect from director Duncan Jones’ latest film. But here’s something that should give you time travel fans a little something extra to geek out about. At least some element of the movie seems to be working on Doc Brown’s Back to the Future time travel rules. Or at least that’s my explanation for what’s going on in this new Source Code clip. Much like the Delorean after a successful jump, Jake Gyllenhaal suddenly seems very, very cold.
In the snippet you’re about to see, Gyllenhaal’s character has just returned from one of his leaps. As you can tell, he’s a bit frozen. He’s given new, terrifying information and authorized to do something with it. Take a look:
Sarah Jessica Parker Holding Out Hope For One More Sex And The City Moviepublished: 2011-02-17 17:18:20 Author: Katey Rich
Because she doesn't know how to leave well enough alone, and because she's become very, very rich from playing Carrie Bradshaw over the course of 11 years, Sarah Jessica Parker is still keeping the dream of a third Sex and the City movie alive. No, really. Talking to The LA Times on the set of her next film I Don't Know How She Does It, Parker dropped a pretty substantial hint that, should the moment arrive, she'd step right back into Carrie's obscenely expensive shoes:
"I'd definitely tell that [third] story, and I know Michael would do it right. But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?"
"It's not that I want to get away from [SATC]. In a million years, who could get away from it it? [But] if I'm not scared again that's not good for me. That's literally no good for me. If I'm not terrified and nauseous and worried the first two weeks of production, then what's going to happen? You could wither on the vine. It's like if you can't use your leg. It just atrophies."
There's so much to say here, starting with reminding Parker that maybe being scared during a production is actually a bad sign, but I refuse to take this too seriously. A new Sex and the City movie would require the other three actresses from the show to sign on, and based on some recent quotes they mostly seem pretty ready to move on with their lives. Sure Parker wants to make it happen-- she wants that fourth vacation home, like we all do-- but I'm not taking this an actual threat without more evidence that Warner Bros., which owns the rights to the franchise, is equally interested.
Something Borrowed Trailer: Kate Hudson Steals Ginnifer Goodwin's Manpublished: 2011-02-17 16:02:43 Author: Josh Tyler
I root for Ginnifer Goodwin. She’s the most underrated part of TV’s Big Love and she’s consistently good in almost everything she shows up in, even if she’s showing up in something as terrible as He’s Just Not That Into You. I’ll even be rooting for her in Something Borrowed, which is a Kate Hudson movie, and thus can be immediately dismissed as being terrible.
For that matter there’s probably no point in watching the movie’s trailer. It’s a Kate Hudson movie which means catty bitches fighting about weddings or trying to ruin each other’s relationships. That’s what she does, and it might be ok, except she doesn’t seem to do it well. Here’s the trailer for Something Borrowed, here newest travesty, in which she’ll drag Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski down with her.
There's no point in watching it, but just in case you disagree and have actually found something of value somewhere in Kate's career, we're bringing the Something Borrowed trailer to you anyway. You're welcome, I think. Watch:
Trailer For Girl Walks Into A Barpublished: 2011-02-17 16:48:23 Author: Mack Rawden
I’ve just watched the trailer for Girl Walks Into A Bar, and it’s somehow more bizarre than I expected. Hip, with a classic vibe, smart, with a dash of naked ping pong, and sexy, with a whiff of dangerous, the teaser is like Get Shorty meets Chicago crossed with The Ten. Think of it like making soup when you’re drunk. You add broth to the basic ingredients and then you just throw shit in. Most of the time it sucks, but every now and again, it’s like a whole new world opened up. Of course chicken noodle soup tastes better if you substitute chicken for smoked sausage! How could I have missed this combination for years?
Girl Walks Into A Bar is the story of a dentist putting out a hit on his wife. Overly frugal and not content to let the whole thing play out he intercedes, mucking up not only the assassin’s plan but the evenings of a whole host of Los Angeles residents spread across ten different locations. It stars Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett, Rosario Dawson, Carla Gugino and Zachary Quinto. Also, it’ll be available for free on the internet come March 11th. Here’s a look at the trailer…
Insidious Is In This New Horror Trailerpublished: 2011-02-17 16:55:55 Author: Will LeBlanc
I can’t decide how I feel about Insidious yet. It stars some under-the-radar actors that I thoroughly enjoy like Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, it seems like it’ll be a scary thrill ride, but something doesn’t feel right. Maybe it’s the “it’s not the house that’s haunted...it’s your son” line that reminds me so much of Paranormal Activity’s hook, or maybe its that it could easily fall into the Haunting in Connecticut realm where great acting is alarmingly overshadowed by a terribly weak story.
This new trailer for Insidious insists heavily and often that you don’t forget the name of the movie before its unfortunate release date on April Fools Day. It’s attractively edited, save for the titles, and it will leave you saying, “yup, it’s a horror movie.” It seems so far like a movie worth seeing, and that it grabbed some praise at TIFF bodes well for this, Saw director James Wan’s latest.
