Backwards trailer (2012)

To get into the Olympics spirit, especially after a superb Super Saturday and great week overall for Team GB, take a look at this new trailer for Backwards from relatively unknown director Ben Hickernell.

The story is simple, it focuses on Abi Brooks (Sarah Megan Thomas) who fails to make it into the USA rowing team for the upcoming Olympics and it forced to find employment elsewhere. When a job comes up to coach at a school, he struggles to adjust to life outside of the water.

Starring James Van Der Beek, Glenn Morshower and Margaret Colin, this is bound to be a hit before it’s even released with Olympic fever sweeping this country and the world. Watch, enjoy and Keep It Reel.

The Dark Knight Rises video collection.

The Dark Knight Rises tickets for the Imax are on sale already, more than a month before the film is released. If you were like me, you would have stayed up to get them as soon as you could, to get the best seats and to enjoy the experience as soon as possible! If you aren’t like me, chances are you won’t want to watch all of these videos of The Dark Knight Rises including the trailers and several TV spots. And excuse the extreme Dark Knight Rises post, it won’t be a regular thing for those who aren’t a fan of Christian Bale’s gravel-esque voice!

House at the End of the Street – trailer

As so many horror trailers look the same, they have no real impression on the viewer due to lack of originality. You could say the same about House at the End of the Street, but even though there are lots of similarities with other horror trailers, this looks genuinely frightening. Now, this MIGHT be because I am currently sitting downstairs, with the lights off and the fact that I am all alone in this house doesn’t help things one bit. But take a look for yourself, and perhaps keep the lights on for this one. Let me know what you think!

30 Trailer Challenge: Trailer 14

Recently the thought of a new film with Ben Stiller in it, is as bad as thinking of anything with Adam Sandler. Essentially, you dont want to see it, you don’t want to see the trailer, you don’t want to read about it and you regret the fact that you heard about a new film with him in it! However, I feel with this trailer, things may have changed. Maybe even just for one film. The Watch tells the story of a suburban dad looking for excitement and so forms a neighbourhood watch where they find themselves having to defend the Earth against an alien invasion. Now I admit this is not the most original idea for a film, someone looking for excitement gets more than he or she bargained for. From the look of the trailer and have Richard Ayoade on board, chances are, they could have a fine comedy on their hands. What do you think?
