Elysium Trailer Looks Pretty Bad Ass

Did you see District 9?  It was that alien movie that come out a few years back.  It was decent and had some pretty cool moments.  Neil Blomkamp (director of District 9) is back with a new futuristic film where all the rich people live in paradise in space.  Earth is wasteland of violence and hobos and Matt Damon is going to wear an Iron Man suit to rough up the upper class.  Check out the trailer!

Movie: The Movie: 2V

Well, the Oscars are finished.  Despite my best guess that Lincoln would take it all, I was quite surprised that Argo won.  Anywho, check out Jimmy Kimmel's epic movie, star studded collaboration of satire in Movie: The Movie: 2V.

The Bourne Legacy: Trailer

Well, after all the rumors and drama the trailer for the Bourne Legacy is finally here!  Matt Damon was busy making stupid zoo movies, so Hurt Locker took the job.  It looks pretty good, and I'm quite happy Paul Greengrass is not directing this film!  Greengrass directed Bourne Ultimatum and Supremacy, which were good movies, but his hand held shaky over zoomed camera drove me crazy.  Enjoy, the trailer!

Matt Damon: The Informant!

Matt Damon is back as a spy... taking down a corn syndicate.  Oh yes Damon has dropped the ninja-esce skills of Jason Bourne and has picked up the TPS reports and headed to the office.  He literally looks like he would have fit right into the cast of Office Space.

The Informant! is directed by Soderberg who brought you the star studded Ocean's 11, 12 &13.  I'm not sure how I feel about Damon breaking out of his normal roles as a bad ass or good guy.  His role as the geeky office guy looks like it is played quite well, and the mustache really seals the deal.  My concerns for The Informant! lie within the story and if there is a McGuffin.  From what I can glean from the trailer this looks like the "fish out of water" scenario encountering all sorts of hurdles along the way.  Damon works for a large company that has some workings with corn and he goes to the Feds to put an end to the corruption.  He takes a wire and heads straight into the den of white collar bad guys. 

I can't quite put my finger on it, but something is off.  It just doesn't seem to have the hook that takes the audience into the third act.  I also get the same sort of tone that was in Burn After Reading which I didn't particularly enjoy.  We'll see how this movie shakes out and The Informant! will be in theaters in September 2009.
