I have neglected my blog this month due to stating up the new youtube channel and it is time for me to get into writing some more reviews and posts. Time for another overview of recent trailers for upcoming films. We have some more usual stuff, trash and some promising films heading our way. This looks like a big year for Burton indeed with three films with his name credited being released this year. We also have a prequel coming out too, which I am sure some of you are aware of. Now, let's get started.
I will admit that I thought the film was going to be a little darker, but I am not complaining. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's latest collaboration is based on a vampire who finds himself in the year 1972. Need I say more? Well, the trailer looks like the film might be worthwhile and good. I must say, Depp looks very young her. approaching the age of 50, he looks around just 25 here. Not bad at all. The film seems more comedic than dark, so hopefully this is better than Burton's last project, Alice in Wonderland.
Oh boy stop-motion! And by Tim Burton! Stop-motion is a difficult but marvelous form of animation. Burton's The Nightmare before Christmas is an excellent example. This film seems to have a style that combines his original short film of the same name, Corpse Bride and Nightmare to create something very special. The film idea was influences by Frankenstein and in the trailer, we can even see some references. The style looks great, the animation looks dashing and I am looking forward to this more than Burton's other project, Dark Shadows.
The Cabin in the woods
Now this looks quite stupid. I remember first seeing the poster in the cinema a few weeks ago and all I could think of was a Rubik's cube. And looking at this trailer, it'd probably be more fun. It seems quite unoriginal and trying hard to be a horror film. I won't be rushing to see this at all.
A Thousand Words
knowing that Eddie Murphy was going to be in this (who seems to have not changed in appearance in 25 years), I thought it was going to be a painful trailer showing crappy comedy. I was pretty wrong. The trailer shows a promising concept and a reasonably comical performance from Murphy. It has a good concept: only having 1000 words left to say. Perhaps I will see this one.
Who's excited? I am! Knowing that this is directed by Ridley Scott I will definitely be seeing this. The trailer was very finely edited and definitely sells the film well: As a thrilling sci-fi film. As a prequel to the infamous Alien, this might be one of 2012's finest.
