The first trailer for directors Joe and Anthony Russo‘s upcoming addition to the Marvel cinematic universe has been released online. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the third installment for Marvel’s Phase Two initiative wherein Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) of Marvel’s Avengers face off against Cap’s former best friend, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan). Barnes, after surviving a near-death experience, is now known as the assassin, “The Winter Soldier.” In my opinion, if done right, Joe and Anthony Russo can make The Winter Soldier the best solo film in the MCU. The trailer showcases the moral conflict at the center of the film and some awesome visuals. It also gives us our first look at Anthony Mackie in action as The Falcon and Robert Redford as World Security Council member Alexander Pierce. Hit the jump to check out the all new trailer.

Two new promotional posters for director Spike Lee‘s re-adaptation of South-Korean thriller Oldboy have made their way online via the film’s Facebook page this morning. Both of the poster’s sarcastically highlight the amenities of the room that Joe Doucett (Josh Brolin) had lived in for 20 years under solitary confinement. The film centers upon the vengeful mission one man sets out on after his unexpected and inexplicable release from being kidnapped and held in solitary confinement. Spike Lee’s reimagining of the film is sure to have plenty of callbacks to its highly praised original, and judging by the film’s red-band trailer (featured below), there will be no shortage of blood.

The first full-length trailer for director José Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop remake has been released online. I’m too young to have a real connection with the original three RoboCop films, but it was something that I always enjoyed watching as a kid. That being said, I think that’s the reason why I was impressed with the new trailer for the 2014 remake – as many fans are griping on the internet about the newest iteration of the franchise. One thing that can be said is that the film is sure to offer fans plenty of nods and callbacks to the 1987 original while offering a new take and spin on the character. Joel Kinnaman stars as Alex Murphy, a charismatic police officer in Detroit in the year 2028 who is offered the opportunity to become part man, part police officer after being critically injured in the line of duty.

Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds – it’s hard to prove whether or not writer/director Quentin Tarantino has made a “bad” movie.

Tarantino’s last outing, Inglourious Basterds, was a relentlessly violent and grandiose original take on World War II clashing fantasy and history. Read the rest of this entry
