Knight and Day
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star in an action flick so silly and over the top it just might work. He's some kind of super spy and she's caught in the middle. The trailer is fun and hopefully the movie will be too. Watch for this one on July 2.
This historical action drama set during the Taiping Rebellion of the 1860s tells the tale of three men who swear allegiance and brotherhood to one another after their shared experiences in combat. Lush historical settings and some eye-popping action suggest this may be one to watch for. No U.S. release info yet.
Forest Whitaker and Jude Law are repossessors of artificial organs in this red band trailer. If you don't make the payments on these miraculous futuristic devices they will track you down and rip them from your body. Wait a minute, didn't this already come out and wasn't it an opera with Paris Hilton and that guy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? No, this is a different film entirely and looks like it might be a good one. We'll find out for sure on April 2.
Kevin Smith's latest film is a buddy action comedy starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as two cops who apparently annoy the hell out of each other. Smith is directing someone else's script this time, but I wish it wasn't this one as the humor doesn't seem to be working. I like the people in front of and behind the camera, but this one seems to be trying too hard to imitate Lethal Weapon and other buddy cop flicks. This one hits on February 26.
Brendan Fraser plays a land developer whose plans to wipe out a nature preserve to build a shopping brings about the titular act of revenge perpetrated by a raccoon and his woodland pals. This may have some kid appeal but this adult thinks it looks kind of dopey. Nature starts getting even on April 2.
