Director:Tom Tykwer
Cast:Sophie Rois, Sebastian Schipper, Devid Striesow

Tom Twyker (Run Lola Run, The International) returns to Germany and turns his hand to directing a romantic comedy with 3. Judging by this trailer the results look pretty decent. It starts off looking a bit arty, but paces up and gets quite intriguing by the end. We see that the general idea is some sort of bizarre love triangle, but not too much else is given away luckily. It’s certainly a well put together trailer, so fingers crossed the film will be similar.

We Bought a Zoo

Director:Cameron Crowe
Cast:Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Thomas Haden Church, Patrick Fugit, Elle Fanning, John Michael Higgins

It’s a ‘whole movie in 2 minutes’ trailer for We Bought a Zoo, Cameron Crowe’s latest (he’s having a busy year with Pearl Jam Twenty out soon too). Plus as much as I love Sigur Ros, I’m sooo fed up with hearing their music on film trailers. The film looks painfully sentimental from what we see here (“I like the animals, but I LOVE the humans” – blurp!). Cameron Crowe can be good at this sort of thing and might be able to make it work but I don’t know. I’m going to approach with caution.

The Descendants

Director:Alexander Payne
Cast:George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Beau Bridges, Robert Forster

Alexander Payne delivers his long awaited follow up to Sideways with The Descendants. This looks fairly similar to Sideways and About Schmidt in that it’s a mature indie comedy surrounding late-middle aged protagonists that isn’t too heavy going. It’s got more of a family vibe to it this time and looks a bit cheesy, but I think Payne’s films rarely make good trailers. I’m a big fan of his previous few features so I’m going to see this whatever.

The Three Musketeers

Director:Paul W.S. Anderson
Cast:Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelson, Gabriella Wilde, Juno Temple, Orlando Bloom, Christoph Waltz

Hmmm, bits of this sort of look fun – I am a fan of swashbucklers. The only problem is with Paul W.S. Anderson behind the director’s chair it’s clearly not looking to be a classic tale of fops fighting with swords. There’s CGI and slow-mo aplenty in this trailer which is exactly what I was worried about. D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) looks pretty bland as a lead too, especially when he looks that way performing alongside Orlando Bloom. You never know, it could be a bit of goofy fun, but my bets are that this is going to be a clunker.
