Random trailers and Film Pix reminder

First, this tuesday (December 5), film pix will be showing The Journals of Knud Rasmussen (2006) at the empire theatres (studio 10). Hopefully, some individuals will be able to go see it. Although, given that university exams are approaching, I doubt that many students will be able to come (excluding me).

Now, on to some trailers.

Here is a trailer for Edgar Wright's new British comedy, Hot Fuzz, (Wright also directed last year's Shaun of the Dead). This parody of the buddy cop films (I never liked that expression) also stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.


In addition, here is the very strange teaser trailer for David Lynch's Inland empire (In fact, it may just be the strangest trailer ever.)which stars Laura Dern, Jeremy Irons, and Justin Theroux.


Now, here is a trailer of Black Book, Paul Verhoeven's new film, which unfortunately looks like melodramatic shlock. Then again,this is the same director who made Showgirls, so what could I expect. Anyway, here is a link to where the trailer can be found.


Here is a trailer for Joe Carnahan's new film Smokin' Aces (his last film was the relatively decent Narc). For some reason, I can't even describe the film, nor do I feel compelled to. In short, it is the equivalent of a mindless orgy of violence splattered on a film screen which completely relies on style rather than substance (which can be seen as a good thing depending on what types of films you enjoy.)


This is a trailer for Karen Moncrief's The Dead Girl which has now been nominated for several independent film spirit awards (including best feature, I believe). I had originally dismissed this film because of Brittany Murphy, but, upon seeing the trailer and knowing more of the film's cast, it now seems interesting. Here is the link which will guide you to the trailer page.


Finally, here is a trailer for the new indie film featuring Nick Nolte entitled "Off the Black". Enjoy.
