Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 – Trailer

Bill Hader returns to the role of Flint Lockwood in the sequel to the surprise financial and critical animated success from 2009, as does most of the cast including Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, James Caan, Neil Patrick Harris, Will Forte, and the excellent Terry Crews replacing the MIA Mr. T.

This trailer is definitely heavy on the food puns, which I can’t say is a bad thing: I should not have laughed nearly as much as I did at, “There’s a leek in the boat!” It’s worth checking out simply on the good-will the first instalment harboured.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 drops on Australia on a very late November 28.

Iron Man 3 – Trailer

Here is the shiny new — and final — Iron Man 3 trailer. Joining the returning cast of Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwenyth Paltrow, Jon Favreau, and Paul Bettany‘s voice are franchise newcomers Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce, and Ben Kingsley as arch-nemesis The Mandarin. Kingsley has been watching his old wrestling tapes for preparation as he seems to be mimicking The Ultimate Warrior in his speech cadence:

Also joining the cast is The Reaper himself William Sadler! Cool! Also expect your obligatory Stan Lee appearance, despite his The Amazing Spider-Man appearance being quite hard to top.

Marvel seem to be throwing everything at this one. Will we see Robert Downey Jr. in the role of Tony Stark in future Marvel films? They are going to have to bring the big bucks if the number of films in his contract are expiring.

Iron Man 3 opens on April 24, one week before the US. Boom!

The Conjuring – Trailer

Before the sequel hits production, Insidious director James Wan and star Patrick Wilson team up once again in another creep-fest, The Conjuring.

More an extended look than an actual trailer, this scene plays out surprisingly suspenseful and eerie. ‘Time of the Season’ by The Zombies is a perfect choice of song and sets the mood well. Despite falling apart in the third act, I enjoyed Insidious quite a bit so this is one to look out for.

Co-starring Vera Farmiga, returning to the genre after the unintentionally hilarious (and entertaining) The Orphan, The Conjuring opens in Australia on September 5. Clap clap!

Disconnect – Trailer

Honestly, this looks terrible. Surely we are past the point of the ‘technology thriller’ or the ‘cyber-morality’ tales of old. The 90’s were the perfect time for that, as the Sandra Bullock turkey The Net attests.

The ensemble tale seems to be going the Crash/Magnolia route of separate stories that intertwine and eventually come together, but I honestly could not care about any of this. Jason Bateman‘s drama-beard only makes this worse. Bateman grew a beard (all over his body) for Teen Wolf Too and look how that turned out!

Disconnect will have limited release this year. If streaming online, many viewers may do as the title suggests.

Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie – Trailer

Ever since Mallrats, I have been an unashamed, vocal Kevin Smith guy. I love the films, I listen to the pod-casts and I’ve been to the live Q&A’s. When the guy is on song, some pretty amazing and entertaining things happen (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma). When the guy is off, he is capable of some pretty lazy shenanigans (Cop Out, Comic Book Men).

The trailer for Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie looks terribly cheap: cheap in animation and cheap in cash-grabbing. Knowing his fans will consume anything he produces, he is seemingly taking advantage of his loyal fan base.

I loved Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. I loved the Clerks animated series. Heck, I actively look forward to the third Clerks movie. But this? Not this. I’m out.

Try harder, Kevin Smith.

Planes – Teaser Trailer

For the first time, Pixar has handed over the reigns of one of its franchises to the vice-like clutches of parent company Disney. Beginning as a direct-to-DVD project, Planes — the spin-off from Pixar’s moderately-received Cars franchise — will now be hitting cinemas once Disney realised that Cars is incredibly lucrative in both theatres and especially merchandise.

Dane Cook has been announced as the voice of Dusty Crophopper, a plane who is afraid of heights. This is an interesting casting choice, as is the bizarre choice of White Zombie’s ‘More Human Than Human’ for this teaser, but one can feel inclined to think that Pixar let this one go for good reason.

Planes flies to Australian cinemas on September 19. Planes merchandise will flood retail a few months prior.

Dead Man Down – Red Band Trailer

Another stab at cinematic success for WWE Studios, another smart move of casting a wrestler (current Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett) in a minor role of a generic thug instead of a lead. They’re wising up.

Featuring the impressive cast of Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard, and Dominic Cooper; Dead Man Down is the first Hollywood film from the Danish director of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Niels Arden Oplev. This looks like a pretty standard, and uninspired, low-budget affair. The Game of Thrones-esque torture-by-rat was pretty cool.

Dead Man Down arrives in Australia on May 2.
