Just missing the mark is the new trailer forParaNorman. Coming from the folks behindThe Corpse Bride and Coraline, this one’s got a winning mixture of childish fun and horror. Drop the horror, keep the childish fun and you’ve got the brand new teaser forDespicable Me 2. It’s safe to say those minions were the original’s breakout stars and now they’re back, as cute as ever and ready to lure you in for round two. Drop the childish fun and go back to the horror for another dose of Cabin in the Woods. Now that we know this isn’t your average murders-in-the-middle-of-nowhere romp, the film’s promotional campaign is embracing it, giving us a brand new trailer featuring quite a bit of the masterminds behind this vicious game.
Got 20 minutes to spare? We’ve got 10 minutes of footage from both John Carter and The FP. While it isn’t enough to sell John Carter as a solid full feature, this material is pretty engaging. As for The FP, after watching the first 10 minutes of the film, it’s either a yes or no; there’s no middle ground here. It’s a film about turf wars via a Dance Dance Revolution-type game. Ridiculous? Yes, but it doesn’t take itself seriously and doesn’t expect you to either.
