First Trailer for Jackie Chan Epic 1911

Jackie Chan’s next film, the historical epic 1911, is billed as his 100th feature. This appears to be mostly marketing math to capitalize on the centennial of the subject matter, “the founding of the Republic of China when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen (Winston Chao) overthrew the Qing Dynasty.” The first trailer is online, and looks suitably heroic.

Chan co-directed the movie with cinematographer Zhang Li (Red Cliff). 1911 is set for a day-and-date release in the United States and China on October 11. Watch the trailer after the break.

As Bleeding Cool noted when writing about the trailer, Chan is credited as “general director” while Zhang receives the more traditional “director” credit. Since this is a war movie, I assume Chan was focused on advising the actors playing generals — Zhang took care of the rest.

THE HANGOVER PART II Brings a Four Day Total to $118 Million

Here are the estimates for the top ten films this Memorial Day Weekend.  Note that the weekend figure includes only the three days of a traditional box office weekend, even though both of the week’s major new releases (The Hangover Part II and Kung Fu Panda 2) debuted last Thursday.  We’ll have a full analysis of the four/five day holiday tomorrow.

We’ve seen Harry, Hermoine, Ron, and Neville posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.  Now it’s time for He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named/Tom Riddle/Voldemort.  This is a good opportunity for me to mention that I think the franchise missed an opportunity to give Voldemort the red snake eyes that he has in the book.  Perhaps they felt Ralph Fiennes couldn’t be expressive enough without human eyes, perhaps it was too expensive, or maybe it just looked goofy when put on screen.  But I’ve always been curious to the what-if.  But he’s still missing his nose so that’s good enough, I suppose.

2 new Transformers TV spots

As we are getting closer to the release of Michael Bay’s final Transformers flick we’re starting to see advertisements popping up and interrupting your favorite television program. Here are a couple that you may notice interrupting your show next

After yesterday’s posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, I wagered that the next poster in the series would feature Voldemort.  I lost my bet!  The new poster features unlikely hero Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis).  Neville is the Harry Potter of the background.  Harry was heroic from day one, but Neville slowly grew into a hero and eventually became the leader of Dumbledore’s Army.

Very Cheesy First Trailer for David R. Ellis' 'Shark Night 3D'

The first trailer for Shark Night 3D has gone online.  It looks just as cheesy as you’d expect and it looks ultra-faithful to horror movie tropes in that the black guy clearly dies first.  Now the issue with a movie about sharks attacking hapless teens at a lake house is that the obvious solution is to simply not go back in the water after the first shark attack.  But it looks like the teens are being forced back in the lake (that’s right, someone transplanted sharks into a lake) as a Hostel-like torture game.  And now that we’ve sent torture porn underwater, hopefully we can shoot it into space.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Shark Night 3D opens September 2nd.

New R-Rated 'Riddick' Movie Greenlit Only if Vin Diesel Takes Pay Cut

Diesel has spoken in the past about a possible sequel, which may be coming sooner than expected.  Diesel has spoken with writer/director David Twohy about Riddick, and it could film as early as this summer with an R rating and everything.  One caveat:
“[Twohy] just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch… in order for us to make a true R rated film, I must work for scale upfront.”

Video Game Movies by the Numbers' Infographic

We all know that video game movies are still cursed in Hollywood, bound to never be good, so while we wait the years it'll take to finally make a good one, IGN have created a new infographic: Video Game Movies by the Numbers. The chart visualizes, in typical cartoony style, various statistics including the highest grossing video game movie as well as best/worst reviewed video game movies, ranked by budget, ranked by opening weekend and so on. You can see the infographic below. This is interesting, but only confirms that most of these suck, no matter the cost.

Posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Over the last couple days Warner Bros. has released a new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 posters, I’ve seen a poster for Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Hermoine (Emma Watson), and today we’re getting Ron (Rupert Grint).While some posters are light and cheerful, these posters show dirty and disheveled carachters.

It seems, Deathly Hallows – Part 2 will follow the advertising pattern of the previous Harry Potter films and give a banner to every single freaking character. 

By my estimation, there are about 25 notable characters in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  If each one is getting their own poster, we’re currently on poster 3 of 25.

New 'Shark Night 3D' Poster

Terror Runs Deep. That's the tagline for this monstrosity of a shark poster for the upcoming shark thriller Shark Night 3D as debuted yesterday on IGN. So, does anyone know what this is actually about, what the plot is supposed to be? Or does anyone care? Honestly, I'm just excited to see some shark mayhem of apparently epic proportions, which is what this is promising! Directed by David R. Ellis (Cellular, Snakes on a Plane, The Final Destination), Shark Night 3D stars Sara Paxton, Chris Carmack, Joel Moore and Chris Zylka. We're still waiting for the trailer, but awesome/scary promo material like this should keep us curious.

New Poster and Release Date for 'Colombiana'

A new poster has gone online for Oliver Megaton’s Colombiana.  The film stars Zoe Saldana as an assassin who hunts down the men who killed her parents.  The movie has also moved up from September 2nd and into the final week of the summer.  Colombiana will now open on August 26th against the found-footage sci-fi horror flick Apollo 18 and the Guillermo del Toro-produced Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.  Hit the jump to check out the poster.

The Amazing Spider-Man' Logo + Teaser Poster

Thanks to ShockYa (via Latino Review), an early teaser poster and logo set for Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man, the reboot being directed by Marc Webb, have been found. Normally a logo isn't that exciting, but I thought this was worth featuring because if you look closely at the poster, you'll notice some scales (hinting at the villain The Lizard) as well as a faint red and blue color, and maybe a face, which is actually pretty cool. There you go - your new background or wallpaper. Enjoy, after the brake!

New 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Trailer

When the last trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon hit, I have to admit that I was pretty much blown away. All the action looks impressive as hell, and I think this has the potential to be the best of the series (I actually wish this whole cover-up for the space race was part of the first film). Now we have another brand new trailer for the summer blockbuster sequel, and I'm even more pumped to see this in theaters. There's plenty of great shots of Chicago getting decimated, and a final shot of Optimus Prime that's just fantastic.
