'Chronicle' final trailer is the best yet

Chronicle-2012-movie-car-in-lake

Chronicle is hitting theaters tonight at midnight, and to celebrate, 20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for the Cloverfield-style superhero movie. The story here is pretty simple: three highschool students discover a giant hole in the ground that gives them super powers. The question is, what do you do when you can do anything? Nothing can harm them and soon their “lives start to spin out of control, and their darker sides begin to take over,” according to the plot synopsis. Sounds fun. The special effects look good too, especially considering the low $15 million budget. Then again, District 9 wowed us a couple years ago with a budget of only $30 million and Cloverfield only had a $25 million budget, so anything is possible. So far, the more I see of it, the more excited I get.

Pixar's 'John Carter' trailer looks amazing, and a lot like Prince of Persia

Who knew Mars looked so much like Persia. Disney-Pixar’s adaptation of John Carter of Mars is already looking quite amazing. This will be Pixar’s first foray into live-action film, with Andrew Stanton (Wall-E, Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life) directing and Pixar trying its hand at realistic CGI for the first time. So far, the result looks amazing. At the same time, Film School Rejects are astute to point out that there really isn’t a lot of mars going on here. We haven’t yet seen any aliens or many unfamiliar locations. So far, it looks to be the Prince of Persia that Jerry Bruckheimer failed to produce last year, and then some.

Weekend Preview - It's 2012 or PIRATE RADIO for you...

What a weekend. Apparently no one wants to face the apocalypse head-to-head because the only competition for 2012 is Pirate Radio and it's in about a third of the theaters. What the hell happened to John Cusack's career, anyway? If I remember right, it was respectable at one time, but I can't remember a good film he's been in since Identity and Runaway Jury in 2003. Maybe he thinks the world is ending in two years.
