From a costume to drama to a mega-sequel to an animated reboot and a big dumb popcorn movie, there’s something here for everybody, so let’s get started, shall we?
First up, a new poster for “Men In Black III” has dropped, and thankfully it won’t give you a seizure like the previous ones. Instead, this one throws the big heads on everyone involved on it (clever!), gives them some Ray-Bans and then drops a clunky, obvious, thought-of-it-in-two-seconds tagline, Back In Time. We would’ve gone with Black In Time, but we got voted down at the meeting. “Men In Black III” opens on May 25th.
Next up, Tim Burton is a busy boy in 2012 not only dropping “Dark Shadows” but also a feature-length version of his short, “Frankenweenie.” Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Martin Landau and Catherine O’Hara are among the voice cast in the story that will center around a young Victor Frankenstein who reanimates his dog after it’s struck by a car. Boldly, the stop-animated film will be in black-and-white, one of the more adventurous decisions Burton has made in a quite a while. And hey, this poster is pretty decent too. “Frankenweenie” arrives in time for Hallowe’en on October 5th.
We already think Guy Pearce deserves a goddamn Oscar nomination already, but this spring he’s gonna convince everyone he’s an action star in the Luc Besson-produced “Lockout.” The already-bonkers-looking movie is about an ex-con who is recruited to rescue the President’s daughter from a space riot in the midst of a full-scale riot. If that goesn’t get your pants wet, we don’t know what will. And this poster basically makes it look like an XBox game. Amazing/terrible. It opens April 20th.
Finally, the cast of “Bel Ami” gets all dressed up for the new U.K. poster for the film. We caught the film at the Berlin Film Festival and called it “Dangerous Liasons“-lite. RPatz fans overseas will be lining up to see this on March 9th, while a stateside date seems up in the air in the moment (March 2nd is listed in a few places, but unless Sony is dumping this thing, it seems that’s not happening). Anyway, take a look below. [JoBlo/HeyUGuys/MTV/HeyUGuys]
