Here is something I haven’t done in a while, featured some awesome movie trailers! Let’s get this thing rolling, I have a great list of 3 trailers for this week (just click on the pictures to check out the trailer):
First off the block is the HBO Films release of Idlewild
, set to release in August. It stars Outkast’s Andr© Benjamin and Big Boi. It is a musical set in the Prohibition-era American South, where a speakeasy performer and club owner (Big Boi) must contend with gangsters who are trying to take over his club while his partner Percival (Andr© Benjamin) is forced to deal with his own internal conflicts. I have always been a fan of the music of Outkast, and this movie looks like an absolute riot. I am almost convinced by the trailer that within this film lies an Oscar nominee for best song somewhere.
More after the jump…
As many of you may know, I am not a fan of scary movies whatsoever, due to an unfortunate run in with a film called Poltergeist at an age which can now be construed as “too young.” Therefore I am not completely overjoyed at the upcoming release of The Omen
. It is a remake of the 1976 film with the same name, and it is still about a man who discovers that his son is the devil incarnate. Another addition to this films freakiness is the fact that it is set to be released on 6.06.06. I’m not into it, but I know a lot of people (including a few people on the FSR staff) who are, so here you go.
You would normally think that a documentary about New York Times
crossword puzzle editor Will Shortz would be something that would slip through the cracks and easily be labeled as boring. But that would be the assumption of someone who is not familiar with Will Shortz and his loyal fanbase. Wordplay
, from Director Patrick Creadon appears to be an interesting documentary about something that is not so interesting. With big names like President Bill Clinton, uber star Jon Stewart and Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina popping up throughout the film, it looks to be a little bit of fun.
That is this week’s roundup. More next Thursday.
