Movie Trailer of the Day: Sci-fi flick Cloud Atlas, adapted from David Mitchell’s beloved 2004 novel, is “an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.”

Or, as directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer acknowledge:

The movie is hard to sell, because it’s hard to describe, it’s hard to reduce. So we decided to make a really, really, really long trailer, and just put it out there. We hope you like it.

Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, David Gyasi, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant, the film is out October 26.

Welcome to Hoxford is a fan film directed by Julien Mokrani based on Ben Templesmith's comic miniseries.

Synopsis:
Raymond Delgado is no ordinary prisoner… On a good day he’ll take the time to tell you he’s the son of Zeus before he tears out your jugular. On a bad day, you won’t even have a moment to call out for help. After a yet another “incident” Raymond has been transferred to Hoxford, a correctional facility and mental institution known for its radical methods. At Hoxford, Raymond’s not the only predator… Come nightfall, under a full moon, bloodcurdling screams pierce through the darkness of the prison courtyard. It’s hunting hour! As the other Hoxford prisoners huddle in the obscurity of their prison cells trembling in fright, Ray cracks a smile. He thrives on confrontation. Lock a human beast in a cage with a legendary monster and, in your opinion… Who will devour? And who will be devoured?

First trailer for The Rum Diary, Johnny Depp’s return to the world of Hunter S. Thompson directed by Withnail & I director Bruce Robinson.

Synopsis:
Tiring of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, journalist Paul Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star, run by downtrodden editor Lotterman. Adopting the rum-soaked life of the island, Paul soon becomes obsessed with Chenault, the wildly attractive Connecticut-born fiancée of Sanderson. Sanderson, a businessman involved in shady property development deals, is one of a growing number of American entrepreneurs who are determined to convert Puerto Rico into a capitalist paradise in service of the wealthy. When Kemp is recruited by Sanderson to write favorably about his latest unsavory scheme, the journalist is presented with a choice: to use his words for the corrupt businessmen’s financial benefit, or use them to take the bastards down.

"Try to look normal."

The First Full Trailer For ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’

Holy crap, Neveldine & Taylor’s ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ looks just as insane as I hoped it would. Marvel getting the ‘Crank’ directors to do their version of Ghost Rider was a perfect creative decision. Ghost Rider uses flamming whip-like chains, vomits flaming bullets and pisses fire. I’m keeping my fingerscrossed that Nic Cages insanity plus the kinetic directing style of Neveldine & Taylor ends up making ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengenec’ one of hell an incredible and visceral 3D experience. I hate 3D and cant wait to see this in 3D. This movie looks dope!

‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vegence’  hits theaters on February 17th, 2012.
