With just over two months until it’s released, here’s the latest trailer for The Wolverine:
The Wolverine is released on the 26th July.
In advance of it’s release on the 12th July, the hype building up to Guillermo del Toro‘s forthcoming Pacific Rim movie has been swelling for a few months now, with a handful of trailers doing the rounds.
Here’s the latest (and supposedly final) trailer for the rather awesome looking ‘monster movie’:
Here’s the trailer for Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen‘s latest comedy, This Is The End.
The film’s stars (James Franco, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and loads more) all play their celebrity selves and the basic ‘one line’ plot is as follows – “While attending a party at James Franco’s house in Los Angeles, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.”
The pair’s last few films, The Watch, Pineapple Express and Superbad have helped redefine modern US comedy cinema. Whether success will continue to follow the pair is open to debate. The Godfather of modern US comedy cinema, Judd Apatow‘s last film, This Is 40 got a critical mauling in the most part, and Rogen‘s been in a fair few flops too.
The trailer below looks pretty good though, and the cast is a role call of current US comedy stars (it only seems to be missing Will Ferrell and Steve Carell):
This Is The End is released in US cinemas on 12th June, and in UK cinemas just over a fortnight later on the 28th.
Here’s the rather awesome looking trailer for the new Superman reboot, Man of Steel:
Here’s hoping it’s a hell of a lot better than the boring and flaccid last attempt, Superman Returns.
Man of Steel hits cinemas on the 14th June.
The Stone Roses reunion documentary, Made of Stone is finally due for release, and opens in cinemas on 5th June across the UK and Ireland.
The film premieres on Thursday 30 May in Manchester at Victoria Warehouse, and the band are set to attend the event alongside director Shane Meadows and producer Mark Herbert.
The film mixes footage of the band rehearsing for their comeback gigs at Heaton Park, as well as never-before-seen material spanning the band’s musical history and interviews with both the band and dozens of folk (regular joes and the rich and famous) who’ve been touched by the band’s lasting legacy.

Director Neill Blomkamp impressed film critics and sci-fi fans alike with his 2009 film, District 9. Four years on he’s back with another sci-fi film, that if the trailer is anything to go by looks even more impressive (one thing’s for certain it’s got a much bigger budget).
Elysium arrives in UK cinemas on the 20th September and the synopsis is as follows – “In the year 2154 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth.
Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.”

Here’s the newly released trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn‘s new film, Only God Forgives.
Like Refn‘s last film (the awesome), Drive, Only God Forgives stars Ryan Gosling and the film follows Gosling‘s Julian, who runs a Thai boxing club as a front for his family’s drug smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the ‘Angel of Vengeance’. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer and Julian’s mother Jenna (played by Kristin Scott Thomas) – the head a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body, before dispatching Julian to avenge his brothers death.
Refn has described the film as, “stream of consciousness.” Adding. “It’s based on real emotions but set in a heightened reality. It’s a fairy tale.” Sounds intriguing. Check out the trailer below:
Only God Forgives hits US cinemas on 23rd May. Unfortunately, as yet, there’s no word on a UK release date. Shouldn’t be long after though – should it?
The Origins film was pretty crap – this however, looks a lot better. Then again, it’s based on the excellent Frank Miller and Chris Claremont graphic novel – arguably the collection that made Wolverine the Marvel comics heavyweight he is today – so, the source material is undoubtedly top class.
