Re: Cool Trailers

At first I was like "Damn," because I want to do a short film about Aurors.

But then I was like "Phew," because the main thing I want to do it for is to make a cool(er than the films) wand duel, and AUROR'S TALE seems to do wand duels the same way the films do. It does a very good job of emulating the feel of those, though.

The Goon movie really pisses me off. That video was posted on youtube two years ago. On that account, at least...

The shorter version of that trailer existed in 2007 or 2008. There was an article with screen shots in a magazine I read probably around 2005. I dunno if it's still in production or what. Everything I've seen of it has been in that bar sequence. The early shots were there, this trailer, the previous trailer, a parody PSA they did, some early test animation stuff... Nothing new has been said about it or released for it in a couple/three years. I think it's dead. I think it was never really alive.

I think The Goon is just David Fincher trolling everyone.


This sucks, considering that it looks really cool..... and we have no idea if this will ever see the light of day.
And the comics that this is based off of are completely unlike anything else.
I wish we could get some concrete info from someone about this project.
I too, would love to this project finished.
The good news is that Eric Powell(creator/author/artist of the comic series) has decided to continue the stories. A new trade comes out in June !

Did you see the fake trailer for an Aurors TV show that got released a while back? I would still love to do something like that. Obviously with better duels that the...ugh...movies.


EDIT: Found it.

Re: Cool Trailers

Damn, that looks a lot better than I thought it would. I might actually watch that, and I don't (as in do not ever) watch TV. Hopefully it'll end up on Hulu or netflix or something...

Re: Cool Trailers

That....is actually kinda cool. A couple of the performances leave a little something to be desired. But it looks like it could be interesting.

And it actually plays with a couple ideas that are also going on in a project I'm writing, so that should be interesting.

Anybody else totally psyched for Skyfall?

I love what they've been doing with Craig's tenure as Bond.

Re: Cool Trailers

The Skyfall trailer is great. It seems like they're moving away from the angsty Bond of Quantum of Solace and making him the smooth secret agent that we all know and love.

Thank god, that movie was painful to watch.

Re: Cool Trailers

I have a very, very bad memory of Quantum of Solace, while I loved Casino Royale. All I can remember of it is "MORE SHAKY CAM!!1!1". So yeah, we'll see about Skyfall.

Re: Cool Trailers

I'm in what seems to be an extreme minority of people who not only loved Quantum of Solace, but thought it was better than Casino Royale. And I thought Casino Royale was great.

Re: Cool Trailers

New P.T. Anderson flick "The Master" just got a teaser trailer:

THAT is how you tease a movie. I'm already sold. I will see this movie.

And C-Spin, I also liked Quantum of Solace a lot. I've talked at length to some people who didn't like it and a lot of them seem unable to deal with the notion that the thing the bad guys wanted to control wasn't the whole world, but a bit of water in the desert. I do, however, feel that trying to put too much continuity into the Bond movies will only end badly. You can watch pretty much any bond movie and know immediately where you stand, cause the plots are fully contained. In QoS a lot of Bond's motivation stems from the previous movie. It was an interesting experiment that I think was a success, but I get why people didn't like it.

It looks interesting but I'd consider this to be an awful trailer because I really don't feel I need to watch it now. I know the father dies, I know the brother has been taken away by the baddies, I know she meets some love interest guy who turns out to be a militia member (likely reformed), I know she does reach her uncle in Chicago, I know there's some initial contrived conflict between them that is then resolved, I know the necklace turns out to be a key to a working computer and I know that there's some mysterious guy on the other end of a live modem line.

Talk about showing too much... quite aside from the fact that it looks like Hunger Games, Jericho and Jeremiah all got drunk together.

Re: Cool Trailers

I was underwhelmed when I initially saw QoS but it's grown on me somewhat. It's by no means a bad film and I'd say better then probably half of Pierce Brosnan's films (and I like most of Pierce Brosnan's) but it doesn't quite manage to be any good.

It really doesn't tie into Casino Royale apart from the opening and closing scenes which like most the script problems can probably be put down to the fact it was handed in hours before the writers strike.

Re: Cool Trailers

I've been trying to remember what I thought of Quantum Of Solace...but I can't remember anything about it other than a couple flashes of not quite images...

I think I must have slept through the entire thing... hmm

I should probably go rewatch it.

Has anyone figured out why there are shots from Ruin in the Revolution trailer? Is OddBall working for NBC on Revolution and RUIN was a proof of concept?

Bad Robot asked permission, and he agreed. Nothing more nefarious than that, it seems.  wink

Re: Cool Trailers

Here is the trailer for Robert Zemeckis' new film Flight. Just skip to the minute mark, John Goodman seems to have based his look on a certain DiFer. As usual, the trailer seems very spoiler-filled.

Re: Cool Trailers

Holy shit that movie looks great, but they just showed me the whole fucking movie.

It's getting to a point where I don't want to watch the fucking trailers at all anymore so I don't get major spoilers for the movies I'm gonna see.

David Gordon Green, Emile Hirsch, and Paul Rudd Secretly Remade an Icelandic Road Trip Comedy called Á Annan Veg (Either Way). It will be interesting to see their take.
