‘Jack Reacher’ has a new trailer

This first full trailer for ‘Jack Reacher’ is a little underwhelming, and it really should have kept the name ‘One Shot‘, but it’s directed by the great Christopher McQuarrie and produced by Skydance, which is as close as you can get to a sure thing in Hollywood. It even has Werner Herzog as the villain. Every single person involved with this is smart and really good at making movies, it has to be good.

Still, they probably should have found a way to add that fat little redneck girl Honey Boo-Boo, because most people are morons, and there’s only so much quality one movie can have before that approach backfires.

Wolverine has been doing P90X

At one point, ‘the Wolverine‘ was all set to film with the great Darren Aronofsky directing a script by the great Christopher McQuarrie, based on a story by the great Frank Miller. But that all went to hell, and then Fox decided it should be re-written by the sort of ok Mark Bomback and directed by the not good James Mangold.

So that’s what’s happening now, and today Fox released the first official picture. It promises a Wolverine movie that will probably be terrible (again) and make me feel fat and inadequate if I watch it with my girlfriend. Needless to say I can’t wait.
