Tuesday Tease: IRON MAN 3 Trailer Debuts on Internet, Marvel Geeks Won’t Get Anything Done Today

Official Synopsis: Unknown at the moment. We did see The Mandarin wearing his 10 stylish rings so we’re guessing that plot is on.

What We Learned: A bad, bad thing happened in Marvel Cinematic Universe New York City and Iron Man feels he’s to blame. You know, Marvel Cinematic Universe is a lot to type when talking about this new shared universe Marvel studios has managed to assemble. The Marvel comics multiverse is vast and ever expanding. The primary comics universe is considered to be Earth-616. We’re taking it upon ourselves to name this new shared Marvel Cinematic Universe ‘Earth-Awesome.’ Now that that’s settled, back to the trailer review. We’re guessing this bad, bad thing has nothing to do with the never ending horde of aliens riding leviathans that tried to take over Earth-Awesome(it’s growing on you) in the spring of 2012.

Tony Stark has insomnia/night terrors. This is understandable since his spare suits get “BLOWED UP!”, his house attacked from the sky and, of course, that mysterious thing that happens in NYC.

Ben Kingsley is The Mandarin and is doing his best to not sound Chinese at all. Which is odd since Earth-616 Mandarin takes a certain pride in his culture.

Why hello there Iron Patriot who could not possibly be Norman Osborne since movie SPIDER-MAN, and his characters, are still owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Why We’ll Watch: The trailer alone looks 5 times better than IRON MAN 2 turned out to be. Shane Black makes his directorial debut into the Earth-Awesome universe. Mr Black, if you don’t know, directed KISS KISS BANG BANG. And if you haven’t seen this film you stop reading this article right now. Rent it. Put it in your brain. Then try to tell us Black wasn’t a damn fine choice to do the third Iron Man. BTW Black’s screenwriting credits include the original LETHAL WEAPON, THE MONSTER SQUAD and THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT.

When’s it coming? Despite what the above trailer says, every other place we found says IRON MAN 3 will drop on May 2013.

Tuesday Tease: The New MAD MEN Season 5 Promo Poster is In, Don Draper Ogles a Naked Mannequin

The Mad Men minimalist teaser poster made the rounds mid January 2012.

Now we have this “nonverbal representation” to whet our appetites until Mad Men returns to our collective TVs. Series creator Matthew Weiner had this to say about the image in the New York Times.

“This is a dreamlike image,” Mr. Weiner said, likening it to work of the Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico, who specialized in surreal, mannequin-like figures.

The image is “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be,” Mr. Weiner said.

“By the end of the season,” he said, “I guarantee you’ll know what it is about.”

A “nonverbal representation” eh? We see the glorious previous 4 seasons of Mad Men, a show about high-powered, fast tallking advertising executives in 1960s New York City, was not a fluke.

That Extended Cut of the AVENGERS Trailer Most of You Have Already Seen is Here, Worth Talking About Again

Official Synopsis

Nick Fury and the international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. bring together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki & his various membered army.

What We Learned: Nick Fury believes in Harvey Dent heroes. Loki doesn’t seem to be bound to a scientists mortal form anymore. Tony Stark has iron balls to talk smack to, what for all intents and purposes, is a god. Of course, he’s probably drunk during that meeting. HULK SMASH PUNY FUTURE JET!

Why We’ll Watch: We’ll watch because of all the snark we mentioned above and then some. Seeing Marvel finally step into the light of making entertaining movies from their characters has been a joy for this Marvel zombie. Sure there have been a few mis-steps but with the House of Ideas running their own movie studio it became easier for them to keep their continuity in line. Although, it did get in their way a few other times. The loss of Jon Favreau and Ed Norton will be felt. But the machine, as always, lurches on.

Now if only Marvel studios could get back the rights to Spider-Man, The X-Men and the Fantastic Four. We could get a good sized mega-movie by throwing them back into movie continuity.

Watch the trailer below the cut.

When’s it coming? May 4, 2012

Tuesday Tease: HASAKI YA SUDA, The Three Black Samurai

Official Synopsis

It is 2100. In the world engulfed in chaos and war whose residents are consumed by terrible hunger, the last fertile land became the subject of fierce battles. Three warriors: noble Wurubenba (Jacky Ido), Shandaru (Cedric Ido), who wants to avenge his father’s death, and Kapkaru (Min Man Ma) craving for power, will face one another in a fight for life and death.

What We Learned: Out there in the future open plains of Africa there are samurai roaming the land being all badass and shit.

Why We’ll Watch: Future black samurai warriors. This trailer took us by pleasant surprise. A quick search revealed HASAKI YA SUDA is a 25 minute short film made by French/Burkinabe filmmaker Cédric Ido. This IndieWire post from November 2011 explains the filmmaker’s biography in more detail. We’re here to talk about the trailer itself. The Akira Kurosawa influence is strong and welcomed.

Cédric is also a superhero fanboy, and plans to make films about black people that incorporate unlikely/unexpected elements, and that are within genres that historically and still currently ignore the contributions of people of African descent.

For once we get a film that steps outside the tropes Hollywood continues to force down the movie-going public’s throats year after year.

But enough of our soapbox. We mostly want to watch it because it looks badass.

When’s it coming? That is a bit vague. All signs point to some time in 2012.

Official site: Also, vague. there’s a Facebook page with not much on it. Once again we’ll point to the IndieWire article and the Live for Films article for good measure.

Tuesday Tease: WHEN HARRY LEFT HOGWARTS Documentary Uniquely Explores Leaving the World of Harry Potter

Official Synopsis

Documentary Morgan Matthews was given access to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2.

This looks like it will be an absolutely fascinating documentary. All the actors appear to be very candid when talking about their time in the Harry Potter movies and it is always odd seeing the extras in makeup in normal situations such as queueing for food in a canteen.

The documentary will feature on the 4-disc Deathly Hallows Part 2 Blu-ray and DVD set from Target.

What We Learned: Gary Oldman is candid and true.

Why We’ll Watch: “It would be nice if it were talented….most of these things are awful.” Those were words straight from Gary Oldman’s mouth. Those exact words sold us on seeing this Harry Potter documentary by Morgan Matthews. Dan Radcliffe’s frank self-assessment of his career after the Potter series is over made this documentary a must see. At the very least we must direct some energy into watching director Matthews other films.

When’s it coming? The synopsis up top says that it’s hitting Target on Blu-Ray and DVD. Maybe there’s a chance HBO will give the doc an airing, eh?

Tuesday Tease: Duke Nukem Forever, The NSFW Trailer that Took 12 Years to Make

Official Synopsis: Aliens have landed. They’ve mutated the police. They’ve come for our women. Ash Williams Duke Nukem is here to stop all of the nonsense and maybe take in a strip show while he’s at it.

What We Learned: It looks like Duke Nukem but the fact it has a release date and no one else is laughing confuses us.

Why We’ll Play: Holy hell. It is 1996 and we’re finally getting used to playing PC games with a mouse. Friends come by the apartment to visit.

“You’ve got to play this game!” they say.

“You kill aliens and pay strippers to get naked!” they howl.

We scoff at their naivete. ‘A video game would never dare be that awesome,’ we think. Aside from that Leisure Suit Larry game our strange college roommate played every day in his locked room, games would never be on the brutally action-flavored side of misogyny.

We failed to realize how wrong we could be.

The copy of Duke Nukem 3D that made its way into our hands and (then)archaic computer consumed every bit of spare time we could muster. After we finished the game, the networked co-op play made sure we stayed indoors for another 3 months.

The news quickly spread that Duke Nukem Forever was coming. We saved up the cash and marked the time until it would appear. Twelve years, and a metric ton of vaporware jokes later, this Duke Nukem Forever NSFW trailer made its way into our eyeballs. And it brought the 12 year old remix of Lo Fidelity Allstars remix of “Battle Flag“(equally NSFW) with it.

This trailer looks like everything we would expect from a Duke Nukem game released in the 21st century. However, we still don’t believe the fucking thing is coming out.

When’s it coming?
June 14, 2011 USA, supposedly.
June 10, 2011 Internationally.

Tuesday Tease: First 14 Minutes of Games of Thrones

Official Synopsis

Kings, queens, knights and renegades use schemes and swords to battle for the throne.

What We Learned:
There’s something not right in the woods near The Wall. The laws in Winterfell are unbending. Sean Bean remains epic.

Why We’ll Watch:
Let’s get this out there now. We know very little of the George R. R. Martin series of books this HBO series has adapted. Many of our friends have said fine things about the fantasy novels. We just haven’t made the time to get into them. The HBO series was a passing curiosity at most. Now that we’ve seen the 14 minute teaser, our interest in the series has risen considerably.

When’s it coming?
April 17, 2011 on HBO.
