NEW TRAILER: Despicable Me

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Thu, 18/02/2010 - 22:41

Now, anyone who knows me well knows that a) I'm a sucker for CGI animation (when it's done well), and b) I'm a sucker for 3D. And when you put the two together – and throw in a voice cast of comedy greats well, I'm as happy as a pig in the proverbial. So imagine my joy at seeing the so-far pretty damned funny teaser trailers for the new Universal 3D CGI comedy, Despicable Me.

So Tell Me Who Are You★

Posted by Neil Davey | Wed, 17/02/2010 - 11:01

Because I really want to know. And yes, we're talking to you, strange fangy man in the bottom right.

As you've probably guessed — there's a bit of a clue on the page — the BBC has released a new promo image for Doctor Who which returns properly this April with Matt Smith as the titular Timelord. The reason for the photo? There's going to be a "proper" Doctor Who trailer premiering on BBC1 this Saturday. Don't worry if you miss it though: it's also going to be online.

Armchair Viewing: The Color of Money (1986)

Posted by Neil Davey | Wed, 17/02/2010 - 10:47

"You gotta have two things to win. You gotta have brains and you gotta have balls. Now, you got too much of one and not enough of the other."

What's it about?
It's 25 years since "Fast Eddie" Felson (Paul Newman) was a fulltime pool hustler and facing Minnesota Fats in that legendary game. When his path crosses with Vincent (Tom Cruise), Eddie recognises something of himself in this immensely talented but hugely cocky young pool player, and takes him under his wing to teach him the ropes. History, however, has a habit of repeating itself, and the problems of yesteryear resurface in this new relationship.

My Last Five Girlfriends

Brit-rom-com My Last Five Girlfriends has been generating a lot of buzz on the festival circuit over the past few months. It premiered at New York's Tribeca Film Festival in April 2009, and had it's first UK outing at the Edinburgh Film Festival last June. It goes on general release across the UK next month, and if it's half as good as last year's rom-com-with-a-twist, (500) Days of Summer, then we here at Screenjabber Towers know we're going to love it.

Armchair Viewing: Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)

Posted by Neil Davey | Mon, 15/02/2010 - 17:37

"And I really don't care for the way your company left me in the middle of fucking nowhere with fucking keys to a fucking car that isn't fucking there. And I really didn't care to fucking walk down a fucking highway and across a fucking runway to get back here to have you smile in my fucking face. I want a fucking car RIGHT FUCKING NOW!"

What's it about?
Neal Page (Steve Martin) wants to get home. It’s Christmas, his family is waiting for him back in Chicago, and it’s all going to be warm and fuzzy and festive. Or it would if he could only get there: due to bad weather, Neal is stuck, along with thousands of others, in New York. As well as being stuck with no transport, Neal is now stuck with overbearing and chatty shower curtain ring salesman Del (John Candy) who’s heading the same way.

"Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?"

What's it about?
Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is the coolest kid in school. At least, when he bothers to go to school. Because as Ferris says, "Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." So one sunny day in Chicago he fakes a stomach cramp ("It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school") and sets off for a day of fun with girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and best friend Cameron (Alan Ruck). Meanwhile, school principal Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) who knows somethig isn't right, sets about catching him out.
