How About That Trailer? - The Mummy


Not counting the moderately successful, but critically panned Dracula Untold, we now have our first trailer for The Mummy. This is the kick-off film to Universal's "We Pay A Whole Bunch of Money To A-List Stars So They'll Be In Our Monster Movies" franchise. First up is Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, some kind of guy who gets involved in the unearthing of a mummy tomb, which turns out pretty bad for all involved.

How About That Trailer? - Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2


Here comes the fun! Following a sneak peak at the film, audiences finally have a look at the real teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and it looks like everything that could be wanted. While writer/director James Gunn has done plenty to hide what to expect from the plot, this trailer does enough to re-familiarize everyone with the kind of fun to expect from this group. Most notably for me though, is just how amazing and clean the imagery looks.

Out Now Commentary: The Arrival (1996)


This month’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe commentary track brings back 90s science fiction in full force. Aaron is joined by Scott Mendelson, Brandon Peters and Cullen Bricker once again to talk the forgotten 1996 sci-fi gem The Arrival, starring Charlie Sheen. Listen in, as the guys do their best to fill this track with lots of info about the film, the summer season it arrived in, Sheen’s career, the talent of Ron Silver and lots of other silly banter. It seems as if this commentary track has been a long time coming, so we can only hope everyone enjoys what the arrival of it has to offer.

Important Note:  This commentary may feature both juvenile uses of language and jokes that may be considered un-PC.  We of course are just trying to have a fun time…

So now, if you’ve got an hour to kill…

Weekly Recap: Moana, Allied, Rules Don't Apply & More!


This holiday weekend sees the release of several films in wide and limited release. Disney's Moana is sure to clean up big, given the stellar reviews and how genuinely likable it is. Robert Zemeckis' WWII drama Allied has less to offer beyond Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in movie star mode. Warren Beatty of all people is back with a new Howard Hughes movie. Then you have the limited releases and expansions of several other movies all worthy of checking out. Plenty of new home releases as well, including two of the year's best films. I also have some news stories and a podcast worth checking out. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Disney has another hit)

(An old school war drama romance with little importance)

(Warren Beatty is back with an okay movie)

(In limited Release, worth looking into)

(Strong lead performance)

(Expands to more theaters)

(Expanding this weekend)

(One of the year's best now in wide release)

How About That Trailer? - Silence




I don't doubt Martin Scorsese. If he wants to take decades to develop a historical drama that will likely just barely make back the money it cost to make, who cares, as long as the results are consistent with the legendary director's other work? Silence is finally going to see the light of day this Christmas and now we finally have a trailer. The results provide just the kind of setup I want for a film with such an intriguing story.

Moonlight and Billy Lynn also go wide this week, but how about all these AFI Fest reviews I put together? Lots of good stuff coming up that I wrote all about.

How About That Trailer? - Kong: Skull Island



This is pretty simple: I'm all in for Kong: Skull Island. I'm a huge fan of movies featuring Kong in general. I find both the 1933 original and Peter Jackson's 2005 King Kong to be terrific. I've spoken more about all that on The Lambcast. I'm also a big fan of the recent American Godzilla, which this film shares a universe with. The idea of a 70s-set film that delves into the mythology of Skull Island is exciting to me and what I'm seeing so far all looks very promising.
