The Silver Bullet ~ “Men in Black III” Trailer

 

Synopsis: Agent J travels in time to MIB’s early years in the 1960s, to stop an alien from assassinating his friend Agent K and changing history.

Release Date:  May 25, 2012

Thoughts:  Not being the biggest fan of the first Men In Black or its rotten sequel, I remember rolling my eyes a bit when I heard a third film was in the works.  It felt a bit like all involved were going back to the well to replenish their bank accounts.  An early teaser trailer didn’t do much to get me excited for the return of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.   With the arrival of this newer preview, though, my interest is unexpectedly peaked.  The time-travel concept seems like a nice way to liven up things up a bit and Josh Brolin should prove to be a nice version of Jones circa the ‘60’s.  Of course it’s also being released in 3D and IMAX to increase the box office take but I’ve a feeling this one should play well in whatever format you choose to see it in.

The Silver Bullet ~ “Seeking Justice” Trailer

 

Synopsis: After his wife is assaulted, a husband enlists the services of a vigilante group to help him settle the score. Then he discovers they want a ‘favor’ from him in return.

Release Date:  March 16, 2012

Thoughts:  Not since Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino paired together to make Heat have two stars been more perfectly matched.  In fact, putting two of the worst actors in Hollywood in the same movie could mean the end of the film industry as we know it.  Of course that’s overstating but when I saw a movie was coming out with January Jones and Nicholas Cage as the stars I just couldn’t imagine who this movie would be marketed toward.  Both have proven time and time again that their acting skills are only a little bit better than their choice of material.  Cage’s fall has been one for the record books while Jones has capitalized on the success of TV’s Mad Men for her poor transition to the big screen.  Once Mad Men is off the air I’ve a feeling her days on the silver screen are numbered. 

Aside from its stars, this movie looks pretty lousy anyway.  With a direct-to-video plot and a trailer that gives away pretty much the entire film what more excuse do you need to let this one slide by?
