Trailers for The Soloist, Changeling and The International

In the last couple of days three great trailers have made their way onto the web for us all to check out. They are the new Robert Downey Jr and Jamie Foxx drama The Soloist, the new Angelina Jolie period-piece Changeling and the Clive Owen and Naomi Watts thriller The International. Check them out below:

The Soloist

I just think this looks fantastic. I mean even the mention of the words Robert Downey Jr gets me instantly interested and the addition of Jamie Foxx to the mix doesn’t exactly hurt (he’s one of the few rappers-turned-actors who actually has acting skills). This is directed by Joe Wright, the guy who directed Pride & Prejudice and last year’s Atonement. It’s a weird film for him to have taken on but his track record shows he knows what he’s doing so I have every faith in him. Again this looks fantastic.


Wow, Angeline Jolie sure does look different to her usual self in her period garb. But that aside this is shaping up to be very good indeed. Not only do we have Jolie’s talent (she can actually act when she is given the right roles) but also John Malkovich supporting her and Mr Clint Eastwood behind the camera. I can’t see how this won’t be good.

The International

I have every faith in director Tom Tykwer, especially when it comes to a thriller like this. He did the fast-paced joy-to-watch that was Run Lola Run (if any of you haven’t seen that already I urge you to do so asap) so I’m sure he’ll bring his skill at creating excitement to the table here. I love both Clive Owen and Naomi Watts  so like The Soloist and Changeling I am very much looking forward to this.

Out of the three I am most looking forward to The Soloist, simply because RDJ but that’s taking nothing away from the other two. All three look fantastic, which one do you like the look of most?

Fast and Furious trailer online

The trailer for Fast and Furious (or the fourth film in The Fast and the Furious franchise) has been made available online and provided for you below. Take a look.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I am not ashamed to admit I rather liked the first Fast and the Furious film. To me it was pure, mindless entertainment that was fun and I find it more rewatchable than most films of it’s type. The second film was a blur of rappers riding around in flashy cars and trying to look tough. And the third I only vaguely remember which doesn’t exactly say it was at all memorable. But I must admit that the trailer for the fourth film in the franchise looks promising to me, with the first minute or so being particularly well done. I am glad they have gone back to the original cast and continuing with the original storyline from the first film; as the tagline says, “New model. Original parts.”

What do you make of the trailer and there being a fourth film in the franchise in general?

How To Lose Friends and Alienate People Trailer


Simon Pegg’s latest film also stars; Gillian Anderson, Jeff Bridges and Kirsten Dunst and is about A British writer who struggles to fit in at a high-profile magazine in New York. Based on Toby Young’s memoir “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People”,  the film is due for release in both the UK and the US on October 3rd and looks very funny indeed.
