“PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2” Teaser Trailer


Paramount Pictures returns to the little horror film that cost $15,000 and made an astounding 107 million at the box office; and is reminiscent of the success of The Blurry, er Blair Witch Project back in 1999.  Subsequently, like every successful horror film, the studio ends up going back to the well (and more-often-than-not) way too many times and the franchise ends up dieing a fate worse than anything shown on-screen.

While not much is known yet regarding the plot of this film,  it seems that the media surrounding this film is getting more buzz than any plot spoilers.  ie: This trailer was released on June 30th with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and apparently scared the kiddies so much that Paramount has had to pull it from Eclipse…and earlier this year Kevin Greutert, director of Saw VI signed to direct Paranormal Activity 2, but when producers of the Saw franchise heard this, they immediately exercised a contractual obligation for him to direct Saw VII and he had to walk away and in turn  publicly aired his grievance on FB, Twitter and the media.

Directed by Tod WilliamsParanormal Activity 2 is slated for release October 22, 2010…the same day as Saw VII.

“HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS” Epic Official Trailer


Warner Bros. has finally released the Official trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and this trailer is truly epic covering both Parts: I & II…revealing Harry and Lord Voldemort once again coming face to face, now in their prophesied epic showdown amid the ruins of Hogwarts as the battle of good and evil comes to a devastating and epic conclusion.

I am so very stoked for this one as every single character is packed into this final story and all story arcs come to an end and the film cycle that began in 2001 will be completed in 2011.  Directed by veteran television director, David Yates – who directed The Order of the Phoenix & The Half – Blood Prince has proven to be a very capable director, while producer of this franchise David Heyman has carefully nurtured these film adaptations from the start and has achieved a remarkable cinematic feat in bringing J.K. Rowling‘s beloved books successfully to the silver screen.   Joining this stellar cast of British acting pedigree is Bill Nighy as Rufus Scrimgeour.  Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint & Emma Watson.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One will be released November 19, 2010 & Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two will be released July 15, 2011.
