    TRAILER: NEW RESIDENT EVIL 4, THE SMURFS AND NARNIA 3

    Another week, another trailers... Today, we will have a few trailers to watch. I know I know! It's been a World Cup season and much of things remained unsettled here. Reviews on this and that, news updating has been slow! Blame World Cup please.

    Here's something for you before we heading over for a weekend. Trailers on Resident Evil 4 (new one),

    RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE


    Resident Evil and 3D - you get a gimmicky thrown axes and shurikens aimed at you. Quite a decent, not so solid trailer here. More actions and more Alices! The world is doomed due to the spread of deadly T-Virus, making everyone who is infected with it a walking zombie on the streets. Taking place five years after the last event at Western coast of USA (remember Las Vegas?), the story continues as Alice has been roaming the world searching for any remaining survivors. Alice also comes face to face with her arch-nemesis, Albert Wesker, for the first time in the series. As she enters the ruined Los Angeles, she stumbles onto a base of Umbrella, surrounded by zombies. She then teams up with a group of survivors who had been hiding in Los Angeles since the T-virus outbreak, and helps them to free another group held-up in a prison, among them Claire's brother, Chris Redfield.

    Starring Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Wentworth Miller, Kim Coates, Spencer Locke, Boris Kodjoe and Shawn Roberts; Resident Evil: Afterlife is directed by Paul WS Anderson (director of first film which I thought was the best of all three). Film opens on September 10 in US and Malaysia.





    LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS

    Boasted by 30 Seconds To Mars' Kings And Queens song, this second feature trailer looks way better off than the first one. More details into the story, it follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father's epic stories of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion, and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father's favor from his younger sibling. But Kludd's jealousy has terrible consequences - causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians of Ga'Hoole - Soren's only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.

    Legend Of The Guardians is brought to you by the studio who brought you Happy Feet - Warner Bros that is. The owl adventures begin this September 24 in normal and 3D formats.



    MIDDLE MEN


    Paramount Pictures presents an upcoming drama by George Gallo; starring Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, Gabriel Macht and James Caan. Luke Wilson plays Jack Harris, a straight-and-narrow businessman who builds the first online billing company dealing exclusively with adult entertainment, finds himself in the middle of a whirlwind filled with starlets, conmen, Russian mobsters, federal agents and international terrorists, all while trying to hold on to his marriage and family. Can he made it out?

    This inspired from a true story movie should find it difficult to pass our country's censorship, though I won't discount the possibilities it will creep its way into the DVDs (haha!) The movie is set to open in US on August 6, 2010.



    THE SMURFS

    The Smurfs - I bet you know the cartoon. Anyway, the upcoming CGI-live action by Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hill Chihuahua) is something that will bring the fondest memories to those who grew up and enjoyed watching the animation during the 90s. The french animation is getting a silver screen treatment and Sony Pictures does that for you.

    Set in the Middle Ages, the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) discovers the Smurf's village and chases them into some woods. The Smurfs get scattered and Clumsy Smurf (voiced by Anton Yelchin) wonders into a "forbidden" grotto and some of the other Smurfs follow. Since it's also a blue moon, a magical portal within the grotto transports them into Central Park in New York.[3] They take shelter with a married couple (Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays) and try to find a way back to their village before Gargamel finds them.

    The Smurfs will arrived in the theaters on August 3, 2011, and stars Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, and Hank Azaria, with the voices of Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Jeff Foxworthy, Paul Reubens, Alan Cumming, and George Lopez.



    CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF DAWN TREADER


    Walt Disney abandoned Narnia after two films probably and most of it due to the dismay box office display by the second movie - Prince Caspian which did half of what the first one did. The 2008's movie opened lower than expected in a summer. It was also believed that the budget would be unbearable since the setting of the third movie will be on the ocean. Therefore, Walt Disney was out. Luckily, 20th Century Fox stepped in to do the third one. Michael Apted directs while previous director Andrew Adamson produces.

    Plot-wise, Edmund Pevensie and Lucy Pevensie, along with their cousin Eustace Scrubb, find themselves swallowed into a painting and on to a fantastic Narnian ship headed for the very edges of the world. Joining forces once again with their royal friend Caspian X and the warrior mouse Reepicheep, they are whisked away on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands, and beyond. On this bewitching voyage that will test their hearts and spirits, the trio will face magical Dufflepuds, sinister slave traders, roaring dragons and enchanted merfolk. Only an entirely uncharted journey to Aslan's Country - a voyage of destiny and transformation for each of those aboard the Dawn Treader - can save Narnia, and all the astonishing creatures in it, from an unfathomable fate.

    Dawn Treader opens December 10, 2010 in US and Malaysia.
