Trailers! Get Yer Trailers!

Some new trailers have hit the net…links at the end of the post…

First off, the most anticipated – the official trailer for the movie 300 is up on Apple Quicktime. And oh yeah, it looks good in high def. My computer can only play up to the 480p version, but it’s great. Ironically though, it’s not as good as the leaked Flash trailer that hit the web a week or two ago and then quickly disappeared. I managed to save a copy of that one, and it’s actually better – more dynamic. Either one is good though, and I am totally stoked to see this movie…

Also up on the web, via CinemaBlend, is a new trailer for Nic Cage’s movie, Ghost Rider. I like it myself, although I have to agree with CinemaBlend that it’s the least horrible trailer yet that we’ve seen. I guess the extra time they’re putting into the FX on the movie is paying off. Cage looks rather old and haggard for some reason though. I don’t know if that’s how he looks these days or if it’s just for the movie, but it actually works for the character.

The trailer for Blood Diamond is up at Quicktime now too. DiCaprio as a British jewel thief takes a little getting used to, but this also looks like quite an intriguing tale of intense drama and action. Watching the trailer though, I think this will be worth seeing on the big screen just for the cinematography of the African landscapes alone.

And while we’re at it…I watched that full trailer for Casino Royale again and it does kick ass. It’s going to be a great flick, and good ‘reboot’ for the Bond franchise. I still think the trailer gives too much away, but it’s fun to watch. The best part about it is the black and white opening. Gives it a noir feel and an extra edge.

Gotta get some speakers at work, then just crank it when he says - "Spartans! Tonight we dine in hell!"

That should impress your boss :)
