The careers of Bruce Willis and John Cusack, waning pendulums that escape from their straight-to-video lows a little less with each swing, have made their inevitable collision into a Jason Patric vehicle in The Prince.
As was previously described with some confusion, the film is an experiment to see whether Patric can be plugged into Taken as readily as hair is plugged into his skull. Our Speed 2 cruise controller plays a former mob enforcer with a very familiar set of skills (firearms training, hand-to-hand combat, talking to his faraway daughter on the phone, etc). Bruce Willis has got some kind of lasting grudge against him, so he kidnaps Patric’s beautiful young daughter, and you know the drill from there.
Cusack co-stars as Patric’s old friend and, as is only natural for this kind of thing, 50 Cent makes this his third unlikely collaboration with Willis. Korean pop star Rain’s lithe form narrowly covers the hole where you expect to see Robert De Niro. Here’s the trailer:
Hey, you know all those Guardians of the Galaxy trailers? Remember that movie Star Wars? Okay, then. Time to watch them get married in this fun trailer mash-up from The Unusual Suspect. Nien Nunb and Blue Swede, together at last.
They’re still not major movie stars, but if the cast members of “About Alex” keep making quality flicks like this, they soon will be.
According to the synopsis, “’About Alex’ is the story of seven college friends who reunite over a three-day weekend, after one of them attempts suicide. When the friends get together to keep an eye on Alex, the weekend that ensues will renew old crushes and resentments, shine light on bad decisions, and ultimately push friendships and relationships to the brink as the group tries to speculate when the simple life of their college years turned so muddy and complex.”
“Sometimes irreverent, sometimes poetic, and always moving, ‘About Alex’ is a searingly honest look at the changing nature of adult friendship in the Facebook/Twitter generation.”
As much as Phil Lord and Chris Miller managed to cram into their Lego Movie, one thing they did not fully explore was the idea that Lego Michelangelo and Lego Lincoln would team up as time-traveling cops in a grindhouse-style film. Lucky for everyone, we can now at least see that film that could have been with the trailer for Michelangelo and Lincoln: History Cops. The preview is coming with a bunch of other extras on the Blu-ray, but thanks to CBM, here it is early. If only Lincoln and Michelangelo were still alive to be utterly nonplussed by this baffling plastic amalgam.

The Fault in Our Stars is only just now hitting theaters, but already we’ve got another dying girl from a young adult book we’re supposed to cry over. In If I Stay, Chloe Moretz plays a girl whose mother, father, and brother are killed in an accident. It was a very bad family car ride. Moretz is left in a coma but still wanders around in some kind of out-of-body experience. She then must make a rest-of-the-movie-long decision: pull herself out of the coma, or let herself slip away to join her family in deadness. It’s like when you kind of feel like staying in, but your friends are all going out so you think maybe you should do that. But with willing yourself to die.
Pierce Brosnan is quite nonchalant about explosions. He has a young protégé who is likewise pretty blasé about fireballs. Together, they are going to shoot guns and coolly walk away from explosions for a movie. It’s called November Man. Maybe Pierce Brosnan is November Man. I can’t wait to find out!
Then writer-producer Paul Lalonde said, Let Us make a religious disaster film in Kirk Cameron’s image, after Mike Seaver’s likeness: and let it have dominion over discount DVD bins, and over Walmart checkout lanes, and over weird little Christian stores in the mall, and over every two-pack bundled with The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes.
So Lalonde created Left Behind in Kirk Cameron’s image, in the image of Mike Seaver created he it; Left Behind and Left Behind II: Tribulation Force created he them.
And Lalonde wrote and produced them, and Lalonde said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, like maybe with a third film, Left Behind: World at War.
And Lalonde saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. But maybe it could be a little better if Nicolas Cage were in it, so he started over with that in mind. Thus the heavens and the earth and the Left Behind remake were finished, and they look fucking terrible:
We long-ago saw the French trailer for Mood Indigo, but with the film’s July 18th US release fast approaching, here’s a new look at Michel Gondry’s vision of romance filtered through cotton candy. Amélie Audrey Tautou and The Beat My Heart Skipped‘s Romain Duris star. In the future, when the idea of distinct races becomes a relic of the past, this film is going to be found by anthropologists and assumed to be a recording of what white people’s dreams looked like.
