Death at a Funeral – Poster and trailer

Posted by LiveFor on April 22, 2010

Still find it crazy that they remade the 2007 film, but there you go. It is a classic british style farce and here is what happens when Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence have a go at it.

Made up Peter Dinklage is playing the same character from the original and James Marsden can be surprisingly funny. Danny Glove is always cool. Have a look at the trailer.

It is out in the UK and Ireland on 2nd June.

Middle Men – Luke Wilson will sell you porn on the internet

Posted by LiveFor on February 22, 2010

This one is being talked about as a cross between Boogie Nights and Goodfellas – both are amazing films so that is a lot to live up to.

Directed by George Gallo it stars Luke Wilson, James Caan, Giovanni Ribisi, Jacinda Barrett, Kevin Pollak, Terry Crews, Gabriel Macht, Kelsey Grammer, Laura Ramsey, Christopher McDonald, and Robert Forster.

Below is the synopsis and the trailer.

Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) has a faithful and loving wife, two beautiful children, and a successful career fixing problem companies. When an associate calls him about an opportunity to help turn around a business that has fallen into trouble, he decides to take the job. Little does he know, it is a decision that will change his life in ways he never expected. Jack meets with Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), two genius but troubled men who have invented a way to sell adult entertainment over the Internet. The plan was brilliant but the execution wasn’t — they were making money hand-over-fist and losing it just as fast. Seeing the potential, Jack agrees to partner with Buck and Wayne, devising a way to bill the entertainment through a third party, taking the guilt out of the ultimate guilty pleasure. Before he knows it, he finds himself caught between the Russian mob, a 23- year-old porn star, the FBI, and losing his family in the process of becoming rich. Witness a story so outrageous, you won’t believe it’s true. A story that proves business is a lot like sex…getting in is easy, pulling out is hard.

Death at a Funeral – Trailer for the Chris Rock remake

Posted by LiveFor on December 5, 2009

The original Death at a Funeral was only made back in 2007 by Frank Oz. It was an okay comedy, well more of a farce really and I’ve never been that big a fan of those. However, it made me laugh in places an had some good performances. Peter Dinklage as the person who gets it all started was excellent (as he always is).

As you may or may not know Chris Rock decided to remake it and the trailer is below.

The remake stars Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Danny Glover, James Marsden, Luke Wilson, Zoe Saldana and Peter Dinklage in the exact same role he played in the original.

It is directed by Neil Lebute and is out on 16th April 2010.

I think Martin Lawrence’s expression in the above photo sums it up.

Battle for Terra – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on February 19, 2009

The film tells the story of Senn (Justin Long) and Mala (Evan Rachel Wood), two rebellious alien teens living on the beautiful planet Terra, a place that promotes peace and tolerance, having long ago rejected war and weapons of mass destruction. But when Terra is invaded by human beings fleeing a civil war and environmental catastrophe, the planet is plunged into chaos. During the upheaval, Mala befriends an injured human pilot (Luke Wilson) and each learns the two races are not so different from one another. Together they must face the terrifying realization that in a world of limited resources, only one of their races is likely to survive.

Is it just me or does that plot have a hint of James Cameron’s Avatar about it? Human befriends alien race, war etc.
