Episode #59 airs on August 19th and is called “Sunset” and, being the penultimate episode of the season, looks to be fairly action packed. I don’t regret ceasing my viewership of the show, but I can see why some of you guys dig it.

Yesterday I posted about Fox’s “The Following” (aka the new Kevin Williamson show) and you guys seemed pretty excited about it, so I figured I’d pass the trailer along today. The show stars Kevin Bacon, Natalie Zea (“Justified”, The Other Guys), Shawn Ashmore (Frozen, Mother’s Day), and James Purefoy (“Rome”).
“THE FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following? Welcome to “The Following”, the terrifying new thriller from creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Dawson’s Creek,” the ‘Scream’ franchise). When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy, “Rome”) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Emmy-nominated actor Kevin Bacon, ‘X-Men: First Class’) to consult on the case. Having since withdrawn from the public eye, Hardy was responsible for Carroll’s capture nine years ago, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on the Virginia college campus where he taught literature.”
JJ Abrams’ and Eric Kripke’s drama pilot “Revolution” was picked up to series by NBC and we already have a trailer and a few clips out of the gate this morning.
The series will air Mondays at 10PM and is summarized thusly, “Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it? On the fringes of small farming communities, danger lurks. And a young woman’s life is dramatically changed when a local militia arrives and kills her father, who mysteriously – and unbeknownst to her – had something to do with the blackout. This brutal encounter sets her and two unlikely companions off on a daring coming-of-age journey to find answers about the past in the hopes of reclaiming the future. ”
The pilot was directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man) and stars stars Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga), Tracy Spiridakos (Being Human), Anna Lise Phillips (“Terra Nova”), Zak Orth (“Romeo + Juliet) and Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad”).

Premiering at Cannes this year will be Outsider Pictures’ new thriller 5 Souls. While I can’t quite suss out if this is for me or not, I always tend to think hospitals make great settings for horror films.
In the film, “After falling into a coma after a routine doctors visit, Noah awakens to find a man sitting at the end of is bed. The good news is that he has come to kill him, and then there is the bad news…”
The Brett Donowho (At Silver Falls) directed film stars Ian Bohen (Pearl Harbor), Steve Bacic, Kristina Anapau (Black Swan), Steven Schub (The Thirteenth Floor), Samaire Armstrong (“The OC”) and Allison McAtee (“NCIS”).
Early reviews have been extremely unkind towards Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D. But if you’re not yet dissuaded (or are still on the fence) we have three new TV spots for you to check out!
“It has been several years since making a deal with the Devil and Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage), living in self-imposed isolation, finds himself as the only person who can help save 10-year-old Danny – and ultimately the world – thanks to his unwanted and uncontrollable power – his ability to transform into the hell-on-wheels monster known as The Ghost Rider.”
Columbia Pictures has released a new TV Spot for Crank directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, which blazes into theaters February 17 doused in a rash of negative reviews. Screened last year (yes, it’s now 2012), the sequel was widely despised out of an early screening in Austin, Texas.
Starring Nicolas Cage, “In the successor to the worldwide hit ‘Ghost Rider,’ Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.” READ MORE
Even if the movie it’s advertising isn’t so great (though many of the trailers on this list are for great films) an effective teaser can often be an inspiring piece of work that you watch again and again.
While I only feel that way about a few trailers every year – and not everything on this list elicits that kind of reaction from me – there’s also something to be said for the rare clip that fully and honestly embraces the movie it’s selling. Especially if that movie’s great (and dangerously if that movie’s bad).

Most of these are trailers for films so bad there’s simply no way to cull two minutes of footage from them and make them look good. Though many of them try, they fail and end up as middling pieces of marketing.
Then there are the ones who seem to know just how bad the film is, as if the guy cutting the trailer realized that people were going to waste actual money to see this thing if he did his job properly and “saved the film”.
This dude – let’s call him “Hero” – looks like he cut some of these teasers, valiantly laying his job on the line to tell us to avoid these movies.

Head there and you’ll find the trailer, some wallpapers and animated gifs (in case you want your twitter icon to be a flaming skull) and three stills from the film as well as various other sundry items.

Word out of the screening – from an audience predisposed to like the film – was absolutely horrific, with apparently only Harry Knowles and a well regarded performer from the upcoming Looper liking the film.
This trailer keeps the momentum going that we’ve seen in the press materials so far, but the word is that the film utterly betrays the promise its shown so far in every conceivable way.

Dreamworks continues an onslaught of press for Fright Night 3D with a third trailer that once again pushes the darker side of the vampire lore. Directed by Craig Gillespie for release on August 19, the remake to Tom Holland’s classic embraces its R-rating, and has been hoping to gain the attention of Twilight haters.
“Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right–but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic. ” READ MORE
The official international trailer has been released for 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Intruders in a Spanish-language trailer. The film looks like a cross between The Strangers and The Last Exorcism.
With no U.S. release from Universal just yet, Fresnadillo’s psychological horror revolves around an 11 year-old girl (Never Let Me Go‘s Ella Purnell) dealing with the childhood demons that reappear to spook the heck out of her and her family. Clive Owen stars as her father, alongside Kerry Fox, Carice van Houten and Daniel Brühl. Intruders is written by Nicolás Casariego and Jaime Marques. READ MORE
In the following new clip from Dreamworks’ Fright Night 3D Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) scoffs at best friend ‘Evil’ Ed Thompson’s (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) suggestion that his neighbor is “like the shark from Jaws.” It takes a jab at Twilight, which I guess is their way of proclaiming they’re an R-rated horror film.
In theaters August 19, “Senior Charlie Brewster (Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school.

These are pretty rare, but every once in a while a spectacular one manages to surprise us all and more importantly, builds up hype for its game. These are the ten trailers that brought out the kids in us; the ones that made us mark the game’s release on our calendars and the ones that we’ll remember for a very long time. READ MORE

This Alone In The Dark trailer is a decent amount action, and in the HD version is looking very very good. Something you may notice in the trailer is it looks like you’ll be able to drive vehicles in the game. This could be awesome or terrible, because for any gamer you already know a game that isn’t centered around driving, or has a decent amount of driving in it, when you get in a vehicle it becomes annoying and plenty frustrating. It seems like this could be one of those situations, but I will always let something like that slide if the game itself blows be away. I’m feeling good about this game. READ MORE
