A new trailer for Eli Roth‘s fake horror documentary, The Last Exorcism was released today by Lionsgate, and we finally get to see what’s up with that bendy chick from the teaser poster.
In order for a horror movie to catch my attention, the preview really has to wow me. I don’t know if I would say that this one fits that description, but it has at least piqued my curiosity. It definitely has a bit of a Blair Witch Project-type feel to it, but clearly has a much larger budget. Roth has movies like Hostel and Cabin Fever on his resume, but both struck me as the more gore-horror than paranormal-horror. Then again, it’s been so long since I’ve seen either of them… Meh. Hopefully The Last Exorcism will be a little more memorable. The preview does look promising. Check it out below the synopsis, after the jump.
New photos have leaked from behind the scenes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, and I could not be more geeked about it, even if it’s not the scene I would pick to glimpse if I had my choice. These particular shots are from the filming of the epilogue of The Deathly Hallows book, and if you don’t want to know how it all ends – consider this your SPOILER ALERT! See the rest of the pictures after the jump.
We have already talked a bit about the upcoming Michael Winterbottom thriller The Killer Inside Me, starring the gorgeous Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba along with the ever-so-creepy Casey Affleck. The official poster and trailer hit the web today, and thanks to JoBlo.com, we have it to share.

The Killer Inside Me is now an official selection at both Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals, and is causing quite a stir before it hits theatres June 18th. I have personally been excited about this film for quite some time, because psychological thrillers always tend to draw me in, especially when they have a cast like this one. Casey Affleck has proven to be one of the baddest motha’s around already in Gone Baby Gone, and it looks like Killer will be no exception. Although this time, he’s wearing a creepy grin and cowboy boots.
Justin Long and Hayden Panettiere have teamed up to star in Lionsgate’s upcoming digital 3D animated flick, Alpha and Omega, and we have a new trailer for you to check out below.
Alpha and Omega feels pretty typical for an animated film. Due in theatres September 17th, the preview makes it seem like this is the familiar “hot girl/dorky guy” type plot that we have seen a thousand times – only this time? It’s with wolves! Justin Long‘s voice is pretty expressive, but I think that some of Hayden Panettiere‘s cute-factor is taken away without that pretty little face of hers for us to look at. The movie does seem to hold a certain charm though, and the bickering and banter between the two lead wolves will probably tickle both children and adults alike. The movie also features voice overs from Christina Ricci, Danny Glover and Dennis Hopper. See the official synopsis and preview after the jump.
Grass is not the first to document the history and effects of marijuana use, and it won’t be the last. Although there is yet to be a studio backing the release of Grass it does have Woody Harrelson‘s name attached to it and is set for a street date of July 14th. See the preview for Grass as well as some other fun weed-related documentary clips below the jump.

Inception is building up the intensity at every turn, from new UK TV spots to new character posters, which were released today. The posters each highlight one character from the film (obviously) and show a different piece of the puzzle, so to speak. I have a feeling that none of the press for this movie will reveal enough about the story to satisfy me. I guess Christopher Nolan knows how to make a movie a “must see.” Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page and Ken Watanabe and hits theatres July 16th. See the posters and the preview after the jump.

Actress Brittany Murphy‘s husband was found dead in his Hollywood Hills home this Sunday evening, The LA Times is reporting, of causes that have yet to be determined.
Screenwriter Simon Monjack, husband of the late actress Brittany Murphy, was found dead in his home on Sunday evening, after the LA Fire Department responded to a 911 call for “unspecified medical aid request.” This is only five months after Brittany‘s death.
That’s right, Grease is being re-released as a sing-a-long! For two weeks, starting July 8th, Grease is going to be showing in selected cities with the lyrics plastered across the bottom of the screen a la karaoke night. The picture is newly restored, so it admittedly looks better than ever, and I am sure Olivia Newton-John is fresh in everyone’s mind after her recent appearance getting “Physical” on Glee, but is that enough to make you want to go sit in a theatre with a bunch of people singing along to Grease?
Buried, the new Lionsgate film starring Ryan Reynolds has a new and improved version of the official poster – and it moves! Very few films have gone this route for their online marketing, so I’ll be curious to see how many more studios and movies take on this sort of motion poster for future projects. In Buried, Reynolds’ character (Paul Conroy) wakes up to find that he is six feet under ground, with only a cell phone and a lighter. Time is running out and so is his air supply. Check out the original poster and the motion poster below (make sure your sound is on!), and see a full synopsis and trailer here.
Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page and Ken Watanabe got a new TV spot yesterday, but it still doesn’t tell us much about what the eff is going on in this movie. The film, directed by Christopher Nolan, is due out in theatres July 16th has the most vague and intriguing previews I have seen all year! The appeal of a preview is to draw you in and make you want to see more, and Inception is easily doing both. So far I don’t even care if the plot blows me away, I’m just impressed with how COOL it looks. See the Official Trailer and the TV Spot after the jump.
