The 2014 Oscar nominations were presented this morning (5:30PST is entirely too early, Who chose this time?) by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth and new Academy president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs. Many of the nominations weren’t surprises, but some of the snubs were big ones (No love for the Coen Brothers, Tom Hanks, or Fruitvale Station but yay for Jonah Hill, Christian Bale and The Square). The most random nomination came from the Jackass movie, Bad Grandpa in the category of best makeup. Ok. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump.
Yessssss!!! The first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Django Unchained was released today. The movie stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz played by Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Water For Elephants). Schultz is on the trail of the Brittle brothers, and only needs Django’s help with a promise to free him upon their capture – dead or alive. Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington; Scandal), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.
I love Quentin and this movie looks great. He always manages to get the best people in his movies. I usually like all of his movies so this probably won’t be any different. Django Unchained is in theaters this Christmas.
This trailer looks so good. Tobey McGuire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton and Leonardo DiCaprio all in one movie, yes please. The movie is directed by Baz Luhrmann, who did one of my favorite Nicole Kidman movies, Moulin Rouge. It is based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald book most of us had to read in middle school or high school about “writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.” The movie hits theaters Christmas Day, 2012.
Yesss my show is back. Season 4 was crazy and Season 5 looks even crazier. They had already released a trailer but that one was more of a teaser. This one finally shows who new cast member, Christopher Meloni (Stabler, Law & Order: SVU), will be playing. Last season ended with a blood bath. Jesus, Tara, Debbie, Marnie, Tommy, Nan and more were all taken out. Russell is going to be back (Yay love him). The new season is only 2 weeks away. It premieres June 10 at 9/8c.
Love Bond movies. All this trailer. It’s all fluff. Lots of things exploding and plenty of action scenes, plus it’s got the hot hot Daniel Craig in it. I will always watch Bond movies because I have watched them since I was a kid so they always have a special place in my heart. Skyfall hits theaters November 9, 2012.
Anchorman has to be one of Will Ferrell’s funniest movies and when I saw they were doing a sequel. I thought yes but ughh a sequel. After watching this teaser trailer, I can say that all my doubts have been removed. It was too funny. The movie hasn’t started shooting yet but it has a release date of sometime in 2013.
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
This movie is produced by Tim Burton and I like him so I will most definitely be seeing this movie. It is based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel by the same name about Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, who discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He then makes it his mission to end them. This trailer is the new red band trailer with lots of blood, gore and killing. The movie hits theaters June 22,2012.
