    Andy Greenwald

  2. American Reunion Trailer: Alyson Hannigan, Others Return

    Andy Greenwald

    Time moves faster in our Internet-addled universe. It seems like just recently our collective nostalgia cannons were pointed squarely on the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind and that only mere days ago we were celebrating the return of animate...

  3. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Trailer: Pretty Cloying, Too

    Andy Greenwald

    It's been ten years since 9/11 and thus the time is ripe for Hollywood to step in and remind us how to feel about it. The mechanism? An adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's earnest and thinky 2005 novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which, jud...

  4. J. Edgar Trailer: Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio Get in The...

    Andy Greenwald

    "When morals decline and good men do nothing evil flourishes," one trailer intones, portentously. "My city screams. I cannot deny her," goes another. The problem? The former is the just released first look at Clint Eastwood's Oscar-baiting J.Edgar st...

  5. We Bought a Zoo Trailer: Animal Defective

    Andy Greenwald

    There's really only one reason why Matt Damon's grieving suburban dad character in We Bought a Zoo purchases the titular menagerie, at least if the above first trailer from Cameron Crowe's movie is to be believed. It's not because Damon clearly still...

  6. Breaking Dawn Trailer: Gross

    Andy Greenwald

    You know, despite our advancing age we like to think of ourselves as marginally "with it." We knew what Jay-Z was talking about when he resurrected "snapbacks" in "Otis" — mainly because we still had them in the back of our closets from the fir...

    Andy Greenwald

    "When it comes to comedy, go big or go home," intones the voiceover towards the end of this first glimpse at The Big Year, a mid-life crisis buddy picture starring unlikely buddies Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Jack Black. Except to judge from the t...

  8. The Rum Diary Trailer: Fun Johnny Depp Comes Back off the Shelf

    Andy Greenwald

    Hide the women and bury the liquor! Johnny Depp is having fun again. That's the only takeaway from this long-gestating, not-quite-as-long-shelved adaptation of the "lost" Hunter S. Thompson novel. Written in 1961, published in 1998, filmed in 2009, a...

  9. Woman in Black Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe Welcomed to the Dollhous...

    Andy Greenwald

    By now Daniel Radcliffe must be accustomed to children turning and staring at him wherever he goes — toplining the highest-grossing franchise in cinematic history can do that to a guy, even a tiny Englishman. Despite this, the now-retired Harry...

  10. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas Trailer: Santa Down

    Andy Greenwald

    It's hard to imagine that just anything could have caused actor Kal Penn to leave his very-serious-sounding gig as associate director in President Obama's Office of Public Engagement. After all, Penn had proven his political backbone when he chose th...

  11. Hollywood Fights Human Procreation With Three New Trailers

    Andy Greenwald

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes is an unquestionable hit. Since Friday, multiplexes have been packed with self-loathing, popcorn-stuffed humans all too happy to shell out $54 million of their rapidly disappearing dollars to cheer for their own extinct...

  12. Twixt Trailer: Francis Ford Coppola's Vampire Blues

    Andy Greenwald

    There are two ways to approach the trailer for Twixt, Francis Ford Coppola's Comic-Con-baiting, self-financed descent into indie-horror insanity. One is through rose-colored glasses, telling yourself repeatedly that this tale of a bloated, ponytailed...

  13. Tower Heist Trailer: Eddie Murphy, Prince of Thieves

    Andy Greenwald

    There are plenty of big faces in the just released trailer for Tower Heist: Ben Stiller, Alan Alda, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Tea Leoni, a spicily accented Gabourey Sidibe and an apparently invested, Axel Foley-ish, Eddie Murphy. But the qual...

  14. Ides of March Trailer: Et Tu, Ryan Gosling?

    Andy Greenwald

    Suits! Ties! Philip Seymour Hoffman! One can practically smell the autumn crispness in the just-released trailer for The Ides of March, the sort of serious-minded film studios release in the fall with hopes of winning Oscars the following winter. Sti...

  15. Battleship Trailer: Not Another Michael Bay Movie

    Andy Greenwald

    This young century has brought us many wonders, ranging from the iPhone to replacing bread with meat, but chief among them has been the explosion of parody films. What was once a trickle of Scary Movies and Loaded Weapons has blossomed in the 2000s i...

  16. Drive Trailer: Ryan Gosling Hits the Gas

    Andy Greenwald

    Like a cool breeze blowing through a stultifying summer of sequels comes the first extended look at Drive, Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn's hard-bitten ode to pulpy Americana. And whether it's the unrelenting heat or the paranoiac visions of a ...
