(Films) Trailer Heaven

I am *soooo* in love with this high-speed broadband malarky. After spending my life on dial-up I am having the time of my life being able to watch trailers on the web without having to wait for *ever* for them to finally download and the crash my computer.

For other trailer fans head over to both Mooves.com and the brilliant Internet Movie Database for a whole wealth of gooey anticipation!

Some thoughts...

Alien vs Predator (AVP) - can't wait for this one to finally hit the screens. A friend of a friend has been doing some work on it and they've been giving it a big thumbs up. The trailer doesn't really show anything though.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - Possibly one of my most anticipated films of 2004. I love the 30's pulp style of this and the effects look brilliant. It's also great to see an independently funded film getting so much attention and looking so damn hot!

Hellboy - Never read the comic but the trailer looks interesting. Dave is also a big fan of Hellboy and I like Ron Perlman.

Van Helsing - Hugh Jackman battles a host of classic nasties (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man...) with Kate Beckinsale at his side. An action packed Victorian romp which is bound to be one of the big hits of the summer.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse - Goodbye Raccoon City! Cool trailer. Certainly got Dave, Sasha and my own juices flowing and not only because of the lovely Milla Jovovich.

Dawn of the Dead - the remake is almpost upon us. Only a few weeks before it is released in the UK and I'm hoping it'll be out in the States when I'm over there next week (hey, I need soem good films to brag about seeing when I return!). Saw two trailers for this one and needless to say all three of us WANT TO SEE IT NOW!

The Village - M. Night Shyamalan first film since Signs. Set in 1897 in a small village in Pennsylvania and the horrifying legend of "mythical creatures" that live in the woods beyond the village.

Also saw a host of other good trailers including The Chronicles of Riddick (aka Pitch Black 2), Spiderman 2, The Punisher (uh-oh - possibly not so good), The Stepford Wives (loved the first film and the remake has Christopher Walken and Nicole Kidman in!), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Day After Tomorrow and Around the World in 80 Days (starring Jackie Chan and Steve Coogan with a host of other celebs including John Cleese and Governor Arnie).

I can tell the local Warners is going to be seeing a lot of me again this year....

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow should indeed rock muchly.

Forget Dawn of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead is the one to watch. ;o)

Indeed, the world can not have enough Zombie films. Or enough Simon Pegg!

Ooh, a new M Night Shamaly... Shalyma... Oh-you-know-who-I-mean (I keep wanting to say "shamali-tuk-tuk", like that Tuareg guy from the old Rowan Atkinson Barclaycard ads...) film is in the pipeline? Cool. I really like his stuff. That guy knows how to build an atmosphere :)

Sounds like it'll be a good year for movies!

Welcome to the world of Fat Pipes!

One warning. You can never go back. You will never again be able to live somewhere that cannot get broadband, no matter how picturesque it may be.

Angus is even more doomed than you realise. We have burstable ADSL, which means that by the time he gets home from work our download is 2 MEG!.
