Trailer for World War Z zombie thriller


I can't believe I hadn't seen this trailer until today. It's based on Max Brooks' novel, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. I was so excited that it took me a while to pay attention to the movie I paid to see. It comes out this summer.

Bad pun alert: The trailer for the new Evil Dead will have tongues wagging!

(Video link) But seriously, this trailer for Fede Alvarez's (and Sam Raimi's and Bruce Campbell's) The Evil Dead is not for the faint of heart. Is it great? Yes. Is it creepy and gory and violent? Yes, times one hundred. And it also delivers. (via Sony Pictures on YouTube)

Presenting the Iron Man 3 trailer, in which Tony Stark is having a hard time dealing with himself

(Video link) Above is the official trailer for Iron Man 3, in which we will catch up with Tony Stark after the events of this year's The Avengers. And it looks like he's, well, going through some stuff and having to deal with things related to Tony Stark and not just Iron Man. And then also the Iron Man stuff, like his new foe the Mandarin (played by Sir Ben Kingsley). This is what I like the most about superhero movies -- when they remember they're people, too.

Blood Brother trailer

Blood Brother Trailer from Blood Brother on Vimeo.

Danny Yourd, producer of Blood Brother says:

Blood Brother is the story of a group of children infected with HIV and Rocky Braat, a disenchanted young American that met them while drifting through India. He wanted to save them all, but in reality he couldn’t cure even one of them. He had to stay. It’s a hard life. He faces opposition in many forms. He lives in a concrete hut. Sometimes, he is close to despair. The truth is, he needs them as much as they need him. They teach him, daily, that love is the only thing that makes life worth living.

View the new trailer here.

Something really special to us is that this entire project was funded through donations. This means we have no debt and no one to pay back for the film, allowing any/all monetary gain from the film to be used to help support the orphanage and the children with HIV in India, as well as supporting Rocky and his efforts. The funding we raised covered the necessities of the entire production. On top of that virtually everyone up to this point has worked for free - donating their time, talents and expertise towards the project. Because of this, we're set up to donate all our profits. When this all blows over, Rocky will still be in India so we want this to somehow support him for a long time. His cost of living is low, so we can spread support out over time. We have no personal interest for financial gain in this project.

Trailer for "Lawless" - movie about prohibition-era rural bootleggers


I'll watch anything with Guy Pearce in it. (NSFW: boobies)

Lawless (hitting theaters nationwide August 29) is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic outlaw tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant's family in his novel The Wettest County In The World, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation's most notorious crime wave.
