World War Z, Rabbit Horror 3D, An Assassin, Wild 7, The Thing, Trailers and Clips

First week of my J-horror season down. I started with Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s brilliant Kairo, watched Pedro Almodovar’s  latest film The Skin I Live In at the cinema (full review next week but I recommend you see it pronto!), then two low-budget Ringu cash-ins, Ghost System and Dead Waves, that didn’t inspire much confidence in the rest of the J-horror boom. Will I change my opinion? Almost undoubtedly yes because I love Japanese films!

 

日本 の 映画 が 好き です。

 

I’m still viewing films so next week will see more Kiyoshi Kurosawa films and perhaps another low-budget J-horror I hope to have delivered soon, my salary and postal service permitting.

Right, back to the trailers!

 

World War Z

Release date:N/A

Running time: N/A

Director:Marc Foster

Starring: Brad Pitt

 

YouTube videos showing the filming of World War Z appeared on the Quiet Earth film blog. Now I love Max Brooks’s book so getting a glimpse of scenes being shot in Glasgow is pretty exciting.

 

I assume this is part of the Yonkers storyline but judging by opinion on the Quiet Earth blog the film doesn’t look like it will be a faithful adaptation of the book, that said if we get another Dawn of the Dead (2004) I won’t complain. Check out the original post for more info!

Dream House, Kill List, Rabbit Horror 3D, The Grandmasters, The Dark Knight Rises Trailers

Dream House

Release date:  30th September 2011 (US)

Running time: N/A

Director:

Starring: Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel

A couple move into a new house with their two children but find that it was the location of a murder. Sounds like Danny and Oxide Pang’s 2008 film, The Messengers.

Publisher Will Atenton (Craig) and his wife Libby (Weisz) move from Manhattan to a small New England town with their two daughters. Will and Libby soon find their new house has a dark history – it was the scene of a brutal murder of a mother and children and the town think the husband did it. Will decides to investigate with the help of a neighbour named Ann (Watts) but finds the parallels of the case with his circumstances, the stress of the investigation and the threat of the killer’s return causing great strain.
