Iron Man 3

It goes without saying these days that one of the highlights of the Super Bowl every year are the big budget, balls to the wall commercials that come out, pimping everything from Doritos to cars to farmers and, of course, the big, upcoming summer movies. It’s a launching pad as big as San Diego Comic-Con – actually, much bigger, since millions are watching, so when you make a Super Bowl commercial, you make it big. The spots cost millions of dollars for just a few seconds – you really have to impress to get your money’s worth. Perhaps the most anticipated movie trailer set to debut during the Super Bowl was from this May’s Iron Man 3. With a release date so close, the film undoubtedly has a lot of film in the can (or digital files in the computer), and while there is no doubt tons of work still to be done, they could probably create a masterful and crazy exciting trailer. So why didn’t they?

Boiling Point

The full length trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus recently hit the … broadband? I don’t know how the internet works, but regardless if you would so choose, you could join the legions that have hit play on the new trailer or you could be like me and decide not to watch it. What is the purpose of a trailer, really? I think it’s a fairly straightforward deal – to entice people to see a movie. Once you’re already enticed, do you really need to see more? There are some movies that I would never have even known about if it weren’t for a trailer. Equilibrium comes to mind. Never had any clue about this movie until I saw a trailer online and it looked awesome. I was lucky enough to then catch the movie in theaters. Sometimes it takes several trailers to wear you down. At first glance, you might not care about Wrath of the Titans because the first one was so mediocre. After watching a few other television spots, they won me over. Now, here’s the thing about Prometheus….

Do you like insane spaghetti Westerns? Of course you do, your eyeballs work. But I can personally guarantee that you have not seen anything until you seen an insane spaghetti Western…in 3D! During last year’s Fantastic Fest, our ocular cavities were lovingly assaulted by the tidal wave of extra-dimensional madness of 1981’s Comin’ at Ya! The film, which was made at the dawn of, and credited with contributing to, the resurgence of studio-released 3D films, is a nasty, gritty revenge story that works in a number of hilarious gimmicks designed to force-feed imagines from the screen into your consciousness. The film made such an impression that it was picked up for distribution by the young, but formidable, Drafthouse Films. Yes, as in The Alamo Drafthouse. Drafthouse Films has already helped spread the good news of Christopher Morris’ Four Lions and their recent acquisition Bullhead is nominated for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Language Film category. Now they’ve given this little indie absurdity a fancy digital restoration for its Texas theatrical launch.

Up to this point I haven’t been all that excited about the upcoming remake of Conan the Barbarian. All of the ads have made it look like a pretty generic swordplay film that could sit alongside the B-level stuff I’d watch on cable as a kid on Sunday afternoons. But then, on last week’s episode of Game of Thrones, we got a great fight scene where Conan star Jason Momoa gleefully slit a guy’s throat and then reached in and pulled out all of his neck guts and his tongue and stuff. It really whetted my appetite to see Momoa slash some more stuff up. And coincidentally enough, now IGN brings us a red band trailer for Conan that gives us almost exclusively tons of that. Momoa growls to us in this trailer that, “When a Barbarian feels thirst, it is a thirst for blood.” It’s a pretty sweet tag line, but it’s also backed up by constant images of Conan hacking and slashing his way through the countryside. This movie seems to be all swirling swords and fountains of the red, sticky stuff. At one point Conan even seems to get amorous when he sees a lady put a sword through a downed opponent’s skull. That’s the sort of dedication to bloodletting that I can get behind. And in addition to the blood showers, we also get a glimpse of burned villages, sacrificed virgins, and what seems to be a much larger scale recreation of the trash compactor scene […]

There’s been a lot of talk of late about how we’re entering the waning days of the 3D fad. Again. More people are seeing the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie in 2D than 3D, the post-conversion process has failed time and again to win converts, the year’s best reviewed action film (Fast Five) thrilled audiences without even offering a 3D option, and theaters are now mucking up 2D screenings with their 3D projector technology (and a healthy dollop of laziness). James Cameron’s Titanic 3D won’t set sail until next year, but that may just be too late. What the world 3d industry needs now is a savior… a film that redefines expectations and turns the technology on its head. A film that demands to be seen in 3D. A film like 3D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy. Check out the moderately safe for work trailer below.

This is one of those moments where I feel ashamed to be a movie geek. Some people (movie geeks) spend nearly a year drooling over a trailer… even worshiping it. Other people (you know who you are) only see trailers at the theater, and think you have an inside track because you saw it a month before the release date of the film. So who is the bigger dummy?
