The Mega Trailer Blowout!

It’s no secret that we’re fans of movie trailers here at Onelargeprawn, and I had intended to post these individually during the week. But now, for the sake of brevity and for your watching pleasure, I present to you Friday’s Mega Trailer Blowout! Admittedly there are only five trailers, but it took a mega-effort for my lazy-ass to compile this shit together. A simple thank you will suffice ;-)

Hit the jump to see trailers for Bronson, Zombieland, Dorian Gray, Inception, and Transforminators.

Bronson is rated R for practically all the stuff we like to see on the big screen (vomiting unicorns not included). Tom Hardy stars in a brutal biopic of post office robber, Michael Peterson, who was originally sentenced to 7 years, but spends 34 years behind bars due to his dangerous behaviour. Director Nicolas Winding Refn attempts to to show the metamorphosis of Peterson into Britain’s most violent prisoner, Charles Bronson.

According to Sony Pictures, one can never have enough of zombie carnage and in Zombieland, America is yet again ravaged by the living dead. After the outbreak, perpetual scared·y-cat Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and zombie-slaying badass Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) must band together to survive the zombie mayhem in this horror/comedy.

Frequenter commenter Macross informed us about the film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s gothic Novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Ben Barnes plays the role of the naïve gentleman who gets introduced to the hedonistic pleasures of Victorian London by Lord Henry Wotton (Colin Firth). Dorian realizes that his youthful beauty will fade one day, and sells his soul so that his self-portrait painted by artist Basil Hallward (Ben Chaplin) would age rather than himself.

From director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, The Prestige, Memento) comes Inception, a sci-fi mystery set within the architecture of the mind. Ooooh, I’m confused already. The trailer doesn’t give much away aside from a Matrix-style fight. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio.

Not so much as a real film, but as a fantastic spoof, IGN’s mashup tells of humanity’s struggle against the Transforminators. The killing is bad enough but what they’re doing to our sand is just the worst thing possible.

definitely a compliment…

“There’s no briefer way of expressing this thought than Shakespeare’s; making further explanation redundant.”

Quite a guy indeed. You’d like him I’m sure ;-)

According to a schedule I got off the interweb, Inception is due for local release on July 30, 2010 and Zombieland will be on January 10, 2010. No listing for Dorian Gray or Bronson. Pity about the latter as the trailer made quite an impression on me.

Yeah these faux trailers are getting more and more classy. Sure these guys do it as film college projects.
Still love the Magnum PI / Star wars teasers.

Except for Transforminators, I think all the trailers are legit. Perhaps SK is not aware of Bronson or Dorian Gray, or perhaps the schedule is outdated.

Han Solo P.I. is my favourite as well.
