Astroboy Teaser

A teaser trailer for Astroboy has made it's way online. Animated, set for an October 2009 release and featuring some heavy hitters in the way of voice acting: Kristen Bell, Nicholas Cage, Bill Nighy, Donald Sutherland, Eugene Levy, Nathan Lane. Too bad this teaser does not tease me at all. Not impressed.

What do you think?

Trailer for Aronofsky's The Wrestler

This is a film I have been following for quite some time. Not only is it Aronofsky's first film in which he hasn't written, but is directing (except an older less known film called Fortune Cookie), but it also boasts the return of Mickey Rourke to the big screen in terms of serious acting.

Not only does this film look excellent, but Rourke seems to have knocked it out of the park. This trailer is so sweet I have watched it close to 20 times already. It's that good. I am eagerly awaiting this film.

On a side note, I haven't heard much Oscar buzz for this, or for Rourke's performance - but judging from the trailer, it may get some buzz once the full release happens.

Fun with BTTF

I just found this really fun Back To The Future thing on youtube. It is kind of an alternate ending of sorts. Pretty funny.

In semi-related movie news

John Williams is the shit.

We may have won the presidential race, but we lost a great author. According to CNN, which I got wind of through our friends over at The Movie Blog -

Michael Crichton, who helped create the TV show “ER” and wrote the best-sellers “Jurassic Park,” “The Andromeda Strain,” “Sphere” and “Rising Sun,” died in Los Angeles on Tuesday, his public relations firm said in a news release.

He “died unexpectedly,” the release said, “after a courageous and private battle against cancer.”

He was 66.

The man who created the genius plot behind one of the greatest books and one of my top movies Jurassic Park has passed on. The man brought dinosaurs back to life for crying out loud. Even if only in our minds. Steven Speilberg did him justice and we should be happy to have a visualization of such a great novel. I first read Jurassic Park in grade school and have since ready many of his books (other favorites include Lost World, Timeline, Congo and Prey). He was a master of storytelling and will surely be missed.
