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!

Fast & Furious 6 – Extended First Look

First up is the big first look at the 6th entry in the former dead-in-the-water Fast and the Furious franchise, this one continuing the semi-coherent overarching story set up in part 4. It’s nice to see Michelle Rodriguez – seemingly at one time on the Hollywood black list – return to the franchise that got her noticed.

I am in the minority in having no real interest in this series, but it will undoubtedly do massive business when it comes to Australian theatres full-throttle on June 6th; two weeks after the rest of the world, possibly so the stars can come down to promote.


Spring Breakers – Red Band Trailer

This is one to look out for. The tone is grimy and seedy, and the cast consists of a group of young actresses clearly trying wipe clean their Disney Channel image for something a bit more adult. The icing on the cake of course is James Franco as a slimy gangster going by the name of Alien. Shut up and take my money!

Nothing set in stone for Australia as of yet, but I would expect this to hit our shores mid-year.
