Trailer 2 For Netflix’s Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series Of Unfortunate Events’
The Movie God   |  

Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Netflix is continuing to show off its series adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf.

We first saw a teaser featuring Snicket, the pen name of the author of the books the series is based on, Daniel Handler, who’s played on the show by Patrick Warburton. Then came a teaser trailer introducing Harris’s version of the Olaf character, a tough role to take on after Jim Carrey famously played him in the 2004 feature film adaptation. More recently Netflix has gotten to the good stuff, releasing a full trailer last month and now a second full trailer today. You can watch both of the full trailers below.

Frankenweenie

As you saw from our reaction post made earlier today, we are pretty excited for Frankenweenie.

It’s a Tim Burton film that blends classic horror motifs (mostly from Frankenstein) with stop-motion animation and 3D effects. We’ve already seen two trailers for Frankenweenie, but none of them paid homage to the classic horror films the way this new retro trailer does.

Check it out below.

Frankenweenie

This summer, audiences didn’t seem to show much affection towards Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, and rightfully so, since the film was critically panned. Now that that film is behind him, Burton is now turning his attention to Frankenweenie.

The teaser trailer was released back in March, and now a new trailer for the film has arrived online, giving a more in depth look at the story. You can see the new trailer below.

First Images From Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ Released
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Frankenweenie

Tim Burton was working for Disney as an animator in 1984 when he made his live-action directorial debut with a darkly funny short film about a young boy who takes a cue from a horror classic to bring his beloved pet dog Sparky back to life after being hit by a car, and that twisted little gem got him fired as a result when the company deemed it too unusual to bother with a legitimate release. After more than a quarter of a century Frankenweenie is being resurrected by Burton as a 3D, black and white, stop-motion animated feature and Entertainment Weekly has released the first stills from the movie. You can check it out here below.

The Movie God   |  

A group of actors have been assembled to voice roles in Tim Burton‘s feature adaptation of his own short film, Frankenweenie.

And as for the names joining the film, they’re all familiar with the ways of Burton. The first four voices signed include Martin Landau, who appeared in the director’s Ed Wood and provided a voice in the Burton-produced 9; Winona Ryder, who starred in both Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice; Catherine O’Hara, who also starred in Beetlejuice and offered her voice for The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Martin Short, who was one of the many stars in Mars Attacks!, will both be voicing five different characters each.

Spoiler Talk: Killers
Guy_Jen   |  

KillersWell here comes another romantic comedy, which seems to be the style nowadays. That’s right Katherine Heigl, who plays Jen, and Ashton Kutcher, who plays Spencer, bring you Killers. While this film did not necessarily bring a whole lot of new things to the genre, if you enjoy this type of movie, you will probably enjoy this as well.

While Killers was a by-the-numbers kind of movie, it was still a pretty fun popcorn flick, especially with the extremely beautiful Heigl involved. I definitely feel that the movie had a decent supporting cast to add to the two big names as well. When you add in Tom Selleck and Catherine O’Hara as the Kornfelt’s, Jen’s parents, this definitely makes the movie a lot more charming.

Throughout the movie you get a lot of fun action and some pretty decent laughs, but where the movie doesn’t come all the way together is in the execution of both of these genres to their full potential. The action scenes are not as spectacular as they could be and the comedy is definitely not as funny as it could be. The script just doesn’t seem to have been fully realized, which is a shame considering how charming the cast is.

Anyways enough of the chit chat, let’s jump right into some SPOILER TALK! The following are my thoughts, sprinkled with spoilers and you should all put in your thoughts about the movie by stopping by the comment section.
