All three of these trailers hit yesterday and I didn’t get a chance to dive into each of them individually. For shame, because there could be lots to talk about.
Up first is the trailer for Andrew Stanton’s adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough’s A Princess of Mars. Anyway, it’s strange they went for practical sets and stuff and so this movie doesn’t feel like it takes place on Mars/Barsoom, it feels like it takes place in the American southwest.
Next up, is the prequel to Carpenter’s classic sci-fi horror flick, The Thing. Which, oddly, is called The Thing. The cast is good and though we were skeptical about this, it still looks really good.
And lastly, we have a new flick from Martin Scorcese called Hugo. It’s in 3D. The flick is an adaptation of Brian Selznick’s “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.”
That doesn’t seem like a Scorcese movie, does it? It’s like the director of Nanny McPhee kidnapped him or something.
