Those who know me will attest to my love of all things Hellboy. As an avid fan of the comics — the artwork, the mythos, the Cthulhu-esque monsters, the characters — I’m eagerly anticipating Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Guillermo Del Toro of Pan’s Labyrinth fame did an excellent job with the first Hellboy film, and this second one looks like a rip-roarin’ good time. Plenty of monsters, a cool-looking baddy and — what’s this? — a BIGGER gun for Hellboy? Count me in!

Check out the trailer here.

We’ve been waiting months. Hell, I’ve been waiting over a year now — ever since Heath Ledger was announced as Christopher Nolan’s pick for Batman’s arch-nemesis, the Joker, in the summer of 2006. But now we’ve finally got it … a glimpse at Ledger’s darker, creepier Prince of Clowns. And it’s not an audio sample or a leaked promo shot. This is it. The real deal.

The first official trailer for The Dark Knight.

I’ve been watching it almost constantly since its debut late Sunday evening. If I had any qualms about Ledger’s Joker, they’re all but dashed now. He’s just fantastic in the role — creepy, commanding and sinister. This trailer just reeks of awesome, and it’s been a long while since I’ve been this pumped about a flick so far in advance. July 2008 had better get here soon. I’m not sure how much longer this film fan can wait.

Good ol’ Empire … seems the Brit entertainment mag got the exclusive on the brand spankin’ new 1-18-08 trailer, which screened before Beowulf this past weekend. The title is confirmed as Cloverfield and we get a peek at both the giant monster (we see … a tail, maybe? … slither through some skyscrapers) and a couple of smaller monsters. I am psyched!

So, check out the trailer pronto.

UPDATE: It has been brought to my attention that what I at first believed to be creatures are actually the silhouettes of a couple of guy in HAZMAT suits restraining an “infected” woman. If you watch closely, you can see the the figure of the woman expand and nearly explode — ew …

New I Am Legend trailer debuts by Matt Click

One of my favorite novels of all time is I Am Legend. There’s been a lot of film adaptations: Vincent Price’s The Last Man on Earth, The Omega Man with Charlton Heston, to name a couple. But there hasn’t been an adaptation yet that has done the story justice. I’m hesitant to say that I Am Legend is the one we’ve been waiting for — but based on this trailer, I’m gonna say it’s as close as we’re going to get.

So here’s the brand spankin’ new I Am Legend trailer, courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes. Enjoy!
