Trailer Frenzy

Just spent another few hours raping the internet for new movie trailers for 2004/2005. More good stuff (and some truly awful ones) heading to our screens over the next twelve months of so.

Best discovery of the night was Ginger Snaps II. I loved the first film so finding a sequel is on its way was exciting.

The Merchant of Venice is due for release in 2005 but the trailer looks fab. I'm a big fan of Shakespeare and with a cast that includes Joseph Fiennes (Bassanio), Jeremy Irons (Antonio), Andy Serkis (Tubal) and Al Pacino (Shylock) it should be a good adaptation.

I also saw the trailer for I, Robot starring Will Smith. It looks pretty damn good too although I can't recall if I read the book as a teenager or not. I know I read some Asimov but found it pretty boring and am not sure if I, Robot was one that I picked up. In any case the film looks like it's worth checking out.

Also saw Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead and The Incredibles again for the hell of it. Film not to watch this year is Planetfall which looks absolutely appalling.

Planetfall?
Like the old Infocom text adventure?

Watch Shaun of the Dead, if only to see if you can find Cammies in the cast. ;o)

Re: Planetfall?
No idea about the text adventure.

Watch Shaun of the Dead? Yeah, like I wasn't going to anyway! I've been waiting for this one to come out for over a year!!!!

Oh, LJ seems to automatically process the link for you. How nice of them.

Of course my previous comments now make me look like the idiot I am!

Re: Planetfall?
Oh dear, that is dire indeed...

to do a proper link, use the a href tag:
<a href="http://www.fullurl.com">this trailer</a>

which will then look like this:

I enjoyed Ginger Snaps thoroughly. I watched it and Dog Soldiers repeatedly while working on Werewolf: the Forsaken. Good, inspirational fodder.

Dog Soldiers is also a brilliant movie. It's good to know that the new edition of Werewolf has a good pedigree of film influence behind it.

Have you ever read The Wolfen by Whitley Strieber (may have spelt that worng)? It's one of the best werewolf books I've ever read. There was another werewolf book I really enjoyed which I can't remember the name of (or the author). I recall it was set during World War 2 and the main character, working as a British agent, was actually a shapechanger. I think it may have been set in Russia. I'll have to check....

BTW, are you up for the pub meet?
