Death Race – Movie Trailer

Set in a grim and dystopian version of the near future, Death Race is the remake of the cult 1975 film Death Race 2000. Surprisingly, Tom Cruise’s Cruise/Wagner Productions is the production company of the upcoming film.

Jason Statham is cast in the role of the protagonist who is forced to race to stay out of a hellish prison.

Statham has made a career out of playing an expert car driver in B-grade films such as the Transporter series and The Italian Job. This makes him the ideal, if not so very surprising choice for the role.

The film is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, the director of the Resident Evil film series and the extremely horrendous DOA: Dead or Alive movie.

Watch the trailer after the jump.

The Incredible Hulk Movie Trailer

The much-awaited trailer for The Incredible Hulk is finally here. Edward Norton (one of my favorite actors) plays the Hulk (one of my favorite superheroes) in this ‘rebooted’ movie version of the much misunderstood, Marvel Comics giant.

There has been a lot of speculation about the upcoming movie, much of it about the lack of any large scale publicity for a $150 million movie. After watching the trailer, I wasn’t very impressed by the look of the Hulk. Admittedly,  it’s not the mistake of the movie makers, as re-creating  a believable,  green-skinned Goliath  on screen is not a very easy task. Somehow, I found the cgi effects of the Transformers movie much more enjoyable. And I can’t help shake off the feeling, that Norton is just sleep-walking through the role.

Still, I would love it if Norton and Co. prove me wrong.

Don’t you ?

X-Files 2 Teaser Trailer

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming X-Files 2 movie was shown at Wondercon. Judging by the reaction of the crowd in this low-quality, bootleg clip, it’s obvious that Dana Scully (the gorgeous Gillian Andersen) & Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) will always have a special place in popular culture.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure if any X-Files movie will ever be as successful as the original television series. The 1998 movie did not exactly set movie screens on fire. Forget about finding Aliens, I have two questions for you people. Will the two leads kiss in this movie ? And even if they do, do we really care ?
