ICONS VIDEO – Trailer & Clip Round-up! 3/23/12

Man oh man. Apologies to our ICONS readers for once again falling behind on frequent updates. BUT on the plus side, it gives us the opportunity to catch up on a bunch of cool stuff all in one post! Lots of cool trailers and clips have surfaced these last few weeks, so let’s take a look at the best of ’em, shall we?


If you’re excited about PROMETHEUS, Ridley Scott’s ALIEN prequel, raise your hand! So Scott has finally returned to the science-fiction genre and now we have the full theatrical trailer. The flick stars THE (original) GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO’s Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron. PROMETHEUS opens June 8th. Check it:

And the International trailer with a bit more plot!


I remember being at an in-store signing for PRIDE & PREJUDICE & ZOMBIES when author Seth Grahame-Smith told me his follow-up book would be ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER. And I kinda chuckled at the concept and idea. But low and behold, we’re already up to the movie version!? Will it work? Will there be more to this flick then the humorous title? Timur Bekmambetov, the director of WANTED, NIGHTWATCH and DAYWATCH is at the helm with Tim Burton (!) producing. It opens June 22nd. Here’s a peak:


Speaking of Tim Burton, his latest collaboration with megastar Johnny Depp is a movie remake of DARK SHADOWS also scripted by Seth Grahame-Smith. While Burton’s gothic flavor seems like the ideal match for a vampire tale such as DARK SHADOWS, the first trailer makes this seem like a full on comedy ala BEETLEJUICE. Still not sure if that’s a good thing or not but it’s coming on May 11th. What do you guys think? Also, seek out the international trailer on You Tube if you want


Who’s ready for THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL? I know we are! The creative team behind REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA is back with a new long form short film and tour. That’s right, Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich have debut their intriguing new project in April and on top of the recently released full trailer, below you can check out a clip of the song “In My Dreams I Drown”. Sincerely, I love this bit so, so much. Check it out for yourselves and you can check out tour dates at our previous news post HERE.


MTV
is hosting an exclusive clip from THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, which hits theaters April 13th. Joss Whedon penned the script, Drew Goddard directed and it stars THOR and AVENGERS star Chris Hemsworth. I’m personally trying to avoid all trailers, clips and reviews about it so I can go in fresh, but if you want a little taste, check out what MTV has to offer below!


Ohhhh, wanna see the brief teaser to David Cronenberg’s new movie? This one looks like a welcome return to his absolute weirdest! It’s called COSMOPOLIS (based on the book by Don DeLillo) and stars TWILIGHT’s Robert Pattinson?! Who cares?! It’s f***ing Cronenberg!!!


The Japanese cult classic BATTLE ROYALE finally saw an official DVD and Blu-Ray release here in America this past Tuesday courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment and we have a whole slew of goodies for you that have never seen it yet. Now, yes… people keep talking about how darned similar this is to a little movie out there right now called HUNGER GAMES. But alas, I’ll stick with my BATTLE ROYALE for now! You can pick up the flick both on DVD and Blu-Ray, on it’s own or in a special collections edition which includes the sequel. Here’s the trailer for the Blu-Ray release:

How ’bout a “red band” clip from the movie too?

And lastly, a behind the scenes clip from BATTLE ROYALE:
