I haven’t actually finished reading the book yet, partly because I’m a little wary of all of the inevitable death that’s going to be going on. I’m the type that’s likely to read the Wikipedia summary of a horror movie before I see it just so I know what to expect. It’s kind of like what Harry does with books in When Harry Met Sally but where Harry spoils himself because his outlook on life is bleak, I do it because I’m a sissy sissy pansy girl.
The movie coming out gives me impetus to finish the book because then I’ll know just when I’ll need to avert my eyes and burrow my face into the shoulder of the person next to me. Plus then I’ll also get to see brunette Jennifer Lawrence make archery sexy.
I really like the fact that she’s finally got all of the acclaim that she so so so rightfully deserves. Though on the flipside I pine for days where she’d play a small venue where no one knew her or her songs and people wouldn’t sing along with them just so that I could envelop myself in her voice and hers alone in the hypothetical intimate concert of my dreams.
Here’s the full length trailer for Pixar’s upcoming film, Brave. It’s their first female lead and while it’s also their first crack at a princess tale, nothing about this seems rote (which is the Pixar way).
The lead character seems pretty badass. I fully expect to have a minor cartoon crush on her.
Movie Trailer of the Day: The first official teaser trailer for the third installment of the Men In Black franchise has landed.
Men In Black III, which stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Nicole Scherzinger, Rip Torn, Johnny Knoxville, and Josh Brolin as young Agent K, is due in theaters May 25th.
I don’t know how that would work either, but I WILL FIGURE IT OUT!
OBVIOUSLY the president tried MIB first but lost faith in them and the called canton to try to find out what this mysterious call was about. And the Doctor is also part of MIB. “I wear black suits and sunglasses now. black suits and sunglasses are cool.”

I didn’t realize they were so far along with the new Men In Black movie. Clearly I need to spend even more time on The AV Club and Slashfilm. I’m cautiously hopeful that this is awesome. I’m also very much looking forward to seeing Josh Brolin as young Kay because he’s pretty awesome with accents and impressions (plus he was in the Goonies so he clearly has my love forever). And of course I’ll take any chance to see Will Smith in something fun again. Now they’ve just got to start working on that Independence Day sequel…
Now, I wouldn’t care about this at all except for the fact that Adrienne Palicki is in it and it’s hard for me to resist projects that involve Friday Night Lights alumni. Plus she’s, y’know, super mega foxy awesome hot.
Oh, and is it just me or is this plot basically the same as the A-Team?
Waylaid by destruction and divisive war, and even his own weary body revolting against him, one small, furry creature never lost sight of his quest, certain that at the end he would claim a vast fortune. And so it was that Peter Jackson did release this trailer for next year’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as a testament to his adventure, which should make a ton of money and briefly bring peace to the Internet-land.
And it was glorious.
Oh, AV Club. You crazy. I’m sure you’ve all seen this by now, but I’m also sure that you nerds probably would like to see it again anyway.
Now, I’m not a fan of the Lord of the Rings (cue boos and thrown objects) but I’m actually kind of looking forward to this. The trailer seems to indicate a much lighter overall tone than LotR which, as someone that is practically lulled to sleep by LotR (blame the time spent on angsty looks, long shots of people walking, and talking trees), is rather appealing to me.
I’ve actually been looking forward to this ever since they cast Martin Freeman since I’m a) a big fan of everything I’ve seen him in and b) he looks so hobbity to begin with, he was practically born for the part. I mean, he even kind of looks like an anthropomorphized version of the Rankin/Bass animated Hobbit that I remember loving as a child.
Another Movie Trailer of the Day: First official trailer for Moonrise Kingdom — the latest installment in Wes Anderson’s storied directorial repertoire.
The film, which stars Anderson vets Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman alongside Bruce Willis, Ed Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, is set to open in theaters May 25th.
I count it as a great disservice to myself that I never finished this novel. Now that it’s getting this rather gorgeous looking movie treatment I suppose that’s just the sort of thing that should kick my butt into gear on finishing it.
Is it weird that all of these movie adaptations of books have led to me wanting to read more? It’s like the opposite of what lazy high school me would think.
