Today was a big one for fans eagerly anticipating this summer’s The Wolverine. Not only did EW premiere 8 exclusive new images from the July 26th flick but now director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) has tweeted a vine of the trailer (the full one will be online Wednesday). The biggest shock in this six-second blitz? Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey! The Wolverine takes place AFTER X-Men: The Last Stand in which Grey perished so this must be some sort of dream sequence. EW asked Mangold if online rumors were true that Janssen shot a cameo for The Wolverine. While he wouldn’t confirm or deny, Mangold did say, “I read that rumor. I thought it was a good idea.” Seems like he put that idea to use. READ FULL STORY »

“Daddy, what’s martial law?”
This isn’t one of the cute family-fun word games that Brad Pitt’s United Nations’ researcher plays with his wife and two daughters in World War Z. Mankind is sprinting to the apocalyptic finish line in this steroid-zombie action thriller, and the latest trailer recycles plenty of urban mayhem as Pitt attempts to protect his family from hordes of the running dead.
Pitt ultimately leaves them behind to find a cure — perhaps in Russia — but at least now there’s a clue. “I think these things have a weakness,” says Pitt, as the camera dwells on a child who escapes a horrible death by simply crouching still. Eureka! Zombies are like Jurassic Park T-rexs!
Two things you probably didn’t expect to hear about the Scary Movie franchise: the fifth movie has a new trailer — and it doesn’t really spoof anything.
OK, yes, the movie’s story does send-up Mama (two heathen children adopted by a smiling white couple), with dashes of found footage, Evil Dead, and a sequence featuring Honey Boo Boo in a box. And…that’s it: In the more than two minute-long trailer, the references keep circling back to those earlier films. The heathen children are mistaken for lesbian lovers. The exorcist the family hires is actually a black con man. Honey Boo Boo is a contortionist living in a cardboard box.
The cast is mostly all-new, scrubbed clean of the repertory company who palled around for the earlier Scary Movie(s) (goodbye, Anna Faris; hello, Ashley Tisdale) and David Zucker, hallowed for his Airplane! script, has a writing credit. But is Scary Movie 5 funnier for the changes?
Judge for yourself after the jump.
We’re not quite sure what the narrator is saying at the beginning (paging Japanese-speaking EW readers?), but this third trailer for Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger (in theaters July 3rd), proves again that action transcends language barriers.
For anyone who’s been keeping up with the other trailers, besides Helena Bonham Carter’s awesome leg gun, this new Japanese version doesn’t offer many new scenes, but it’s low on dialogue and bursting with intense imagery, explosions, falls, and Armie Hammer shots. It’s the perfect trailer for a summer blockbuster.
Check it out past the jump.
The cult-hit superhero dark comedy Kick-Ass earned a modest amount of money back in 2010, and the film’s following has only grown in the last few years. The film’s success made a cool-kid superstar out of Chloë Grace Moretz and landed director Matthew Vaughn the X-Men: First Class gig. This summer brings Kick-Ass 2, which sees a slightly older Hit-Girl and Kick-Ass joining forces with a whole league of hilariously bargain-bin superheroes, including an unrecognizable Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes. Also, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is back as Red Mist, although now he’s given himself a new name which is unprintable on this family website. So watch the NSFW trailer below: READ FULL STORY »
In the new trailer for Generation Um… Keanu Reeves answers the question “Will two young woman let you film them in their underwear and ask them deeply personal questions if it’s in service to like, a deeper understanding of life and just getting, like, a real sense of New York City and stuff like that, bro?” (The answer is: yes, but only in indie films).
In the movie, Reeves plays John, a driver for an escort service, and Carey-Mulligan-doppleganger Adelaide Clemens and Bojana Novakovic play two escorts who are also his friends. When John steals a camcorder, things get contemplative.
Apple debuted the trailer today. Watch for the high point when everyone’s favorite Smash dramaturg (Daniel Sunjata) tells Keanu, “Bro, you got to grab that boo-yah where you can before some other dumba– grabs it away from you.”
If anyone has a better idea of how to spell “boo-yah” or a definition not yet on UrbanDictionary, let me know (but keep it PG). READ FULL STORY »
The newest trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness prominently features the return of Bruce Greenwood as Admiral Pike, the original original Enterprise captain who’s been transformed via Abrams into the Viper to Captain Kirk’s Maverick. “Do you have any idea what a pain you are?” Pike tells Kirk, who’s apparently been insubordinate about something. Cue various shots of volcanoes and explosions and a bigscreen remake of the Dead Space 2 zero-gravity space flight. And at the end Admiral Pike says to Kirk: “You’ll pick up your RIO when you get to the ship. And if you don’t, give me a call. I’ll fly with you.” Cue Steve Stevens’s electric guitar.

Funnyman Kevin Hart began a successful round of stand-up comedy tours in 2009. His latest tour was captured on camera for the documentary Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain. The teaser trailer and first poster for the film were released online Friday.
The brief preview boasts more sincerity than comedy, as Hart tells us in voiceover why making people laugh is his passion. Beyond that, it just gives us a few glimpses of the crowd in New York’s Madison Square Garden and the back of Hart as he approaches the microphone. Check out the teaser below: READ FULL STORY »
'To the Wonder' new trailer has us longing for love alongside Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams -- VIDEO
Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder, much like Tree of Life, will likely divide moviegoers. The first trailer for the film, starring Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko, was beautifully shot and thought provoking as Barden’s priest character discussed opening yourself up to love. The few details known about the actual story are that it involves a man, Neil (Affleck), torn between two women: Marina (Kurylenko), “the European woman who moved to the United States to be with him, and Jane (McAdams), the old flame from his hometown whom he reconnects with when his relationship with Marina starts to fray.”
In the new preview, it seems Malick has — no surprise — opted not to disclose more details about the plot, instead selling viewers a beautiful fantasy, with a trailer that could easily be mistaken for a highly stylized perfume ad. “You fear your love has died,” Bardem intones via voiceover. “Perhaps it’s waiting to be transformed into something higher.” The music then swells as we see dreamy shots of them all laughing, loving, and frolicking in the grass.

It is a nice coincidence that the trailer for a new documentary about filmmaker John Milius should arrive as the Big Lebowski is celebrating its 15th anniversary, given the writer-director was one of the inspirations for John Goodman’s war-obsessed gun nut Walter Sobchak. But the clip for Milius also serves as a reminder that that piece of trivia is one of the less interesting things about this larger-than-life character who brought us Big Wednesday, Conan the Barbarian, Dillinger, and Red Dawn, and who also cowrote Apocalypse Now and had a hand in penning the U.S.S. Indianapolis monologue in Jaws.
