So, that Inception movie was a bit good, no? This week’s trailers probably can’t live up to that kind of spectacle but we do have one surprise up our sleeves – a post where Ben Affleck doesn’t get laughed at. Biutiful Biutiful is the forthcoming film from Oscar nominated Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and Oscar winning actor Javier Bardem. The seemingly impressive ease of Bardem to capture the dark, malevolent side of humanity showcased in this trailer is offset by his deep, earthy baritone narration as if he’s drifting in and out of consciousness. With Bardem having already picked up a Best Actor award at Cannes for his performance, Biutiful could be one to look out for around early next year. The Town Funny how such a maligned and unappreciated actor seems to be blossoming into a potentially very good director. Affleck seems to be carving a niche for himself with not-quite-blockbuster movies taken from not-quite-blockbuster books and I, for one, am becoming pretty impressed with him. The Town starring himself and recent Hollywood favourite Jeremy Renner hits cinemas September time. The Social Network Okay, so I know we had the original teaser trailer for this included in this here column not too long ago but another, far better trailer has dropped. Worth posting about this movie again purely because this trailer gives you more of an idea of how the movie will pan out. I’m still not 100% sold but this is 100% better than the last, mysterious efforts. Look for an October release. Due Date Final selection, to add a bit of light-heartedness, is Due Date. Made by the guy who directed The Hangover, Due Date is purported to be that very film, for this year’s audience. If film goers still agree on the general consensus that any film with Robert Downey Jr is worth watching than this will be potentially huge. This comedy appears mid November. DVD release of the week Karate Kid This week’s pick is out on the Blu-ray format but has been out on DVD for years. If you haven’t got it already there is really no excuse. But if you want to see Daniel Larusso wax on, wax off one more time in better quality or if you haven’t seen it at all, I implore you to go out and buy it. 80’s teen movies were the best.
