Here is the trailer for “Star Wars: Uncut.” Basically, “Star Wars” fans film 15 second scenes from the original film – interpreting it any way they want – and then the whole thing is pieced together into a “remake” of (but really a tribute to) the original. It looks really cool, and shows a lot more respect for the saga than George Lucas himself gave it with his prequel films.  I only wish that I could’ve been involved in this somehow.  That would’ve been an honor.  A big, nerdy honor.

This movie better be released somewhere within a 50 mile radius of me.

Here’s the trailer for the documentary, “Guys ‘n’ Divas:  Battle of the High School Musicals,” which will premiere on Showtime Thursday at 8:00 p.m.  Why do I care?  Well, it was filmed in part at my high school, Floyd Central, during my senior year.  It focuses on our theatre department, and while I am not in the show that they perform in it, I was involved in the department.  It stars people I know, and I plan to watch it and laugh my boobs off at all the dramz.  You should too.

The new trailer for Wes Anderson’s upcoming film, an animated adaptation of Roald Dahl’s “Fantastic Mr. Fox.”  Visually, it looks very interesting and different.  It’s still quite obviously an Anderson film, though.  Can’t wait to see it.

Sorry I can’t embed this.  Just click that and see the trailer.

Now, read what I have to say about it:

I think it looks exactly like I pictured it when reading the book.  I do not, however, think that the editing of the trailer does it justice.  I can tell, from the bits of the movie that they show in the trailer, that it will be awesome, but the quick cuts, the “heart pounding” music, and the ridiculous words that flash across the screen make it look more like a Steven Seagal movie than an adaptation of The Road, one of the more celebrated books to be released in recent years.

Honestly, though, I’m still not sure I’ll see it.  Just reading the book made me nervous, as I do not deal well with books or movies that have an apocalyptic tone (or are flat out set in the apocalypse).  As beautiful as I’m almost certain the film is, I’m not certain that I can pay eight or nine dollars to be severely freaked out and depressed.  Maybe I’ll rent it.


The trailer for Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, which is a return to the 2D animation form for them. It’s also their first black princess, and knowing Disney’s track record with racism, I’m pretty wary about how they’re going to pull it off. But, it looks pretty and I’m glad that they’ve stopped their (non-Pixar) CGI animation for the time being.

Does it annoy anyone else that they feel the need, at the beginning of the trailer, to remind us of all the other animated movies they’ve made?  We get it, you’re Disney!  Is there anyone out there who actually forgot that Disney made The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast?  Nah.

I also wonder if this is a musical, like most of their other animated films.  I’m assuming it is, as the Princess is voiced by Anika Noni Rose, she of Broadway and Dreamgirls fame (yeah, she can sing).  And, speaking of the voice cast, Keith David voices the evil witch doctor, which should be terrifying (if you saw Coraline, where he plays the mysterious cat, you know that he has an interesting voice).

I’m definitely interested (and maybe a bit excited) to see this.

Looks cute.  Just the kind of hipster, faux-documentary/comedy that I could really like.  Loads of great people in it, too.

I love the little girl who says her idea of a good date is to, “Take them to Applebee’s and buy ’em some hot wings.”

I’ve heard murmurs that this movie is awesome, so I finally took the time to watch the trailer.  It looks amazing, although perhaps a little too much like “2001:  A Space Odyssey,” complete with a HAL-esque robot.  Sam Rockwell’s performance looks outstanding, though, so I’ll definitely be there.  He’s way underrated.

Looks amazing.  It was one of my favorite books in the series, and it looks like it might be the best movie since “Prisoner of Azkaban.”

Here are a few awesome movie trailers for films that are coming out in 2009.  Enjoy.
