This weeks we’ve got videos for films (Case 39 and The Next Three Days), video games (Brink, Epic Mickey, Dragon Age 2, and Halo: Reach), and a hilarious video from Funny or Die promoting Piranha 3D for the Oscars. Check them out below:
Case 39 Trailer - A horror film in which a little girl is taken in by a social worker (renee Zewhen she discovers that her parents are trying to kill her. In actuality the danger goes much deeper than deranged parents when supernatural events start occurring to those around the little girl. Hopefully it is just something clinging to her and not a hidden evil residing within the girl because even if her hair has the strong potential to be styled like the girl from The Ring, I have had enough of that.
The Next Three Days Trailer – A husband (Russell Crowe) is willing to do whatever it takes to break his wife (Elizabeth Banks) out of prison after the legal means in which to prove her innocence in a murder case have not done the job. Well technically not everything. I don’t think he tattooed his body with clues to an escape before getting arrested himself. But I guess that was already taken.
Brink Featurette – Here’s a fleshed out look at the S.M.A.R.T. system in Brink, AKA the movement on the world. They delve deeper into explaining the fluidity of the gameplay in which they tried to create a shhoter where it wouldn’t be about running then shooting, but running and shooting with a greater sense of ease that ever before. Check it out here.
Epic Mickey Opening Cinematic – I have had a love/hate relationship with this game for a while now. Well, let me tone that down a little bit. It has been more of a “meh/ooo” relationship with this one because I love Mickey Mouse and am not ashamed to wear a t-shirt I have with him on it that I got when I was a child still (I wore really baggy clothes back then… Don’t just me), but the whole magical paintbrush thing threw me a little bit when I first saw it. Now I will say that this opening cinematic is starting to turn me back towards being more than willing to go on this new path with everyone’s favorite mouse. Check out these Fantasia inspired few minutes for yourself.
Dragon Age 2 Trailer – Yet another spectacular animated trailer for an upcoming game. This time a battle wages between the hero (?) and a goat man, and let’s just say that you get to hear the losers body parts slap against the ground when all is said and done. Haven’t played this series yet either, but from what I’ve heard it is sure worthy of the time it takes to play it. Maybe it’s about time I give it a go.
Halo: Reach – A Spartan Will Rise Trailer - Get to know the members of Noble Team that will be fighting the good fight in the newest Halo game. “Only one will hold our fate in their hands.” Oh, ho, ho… Silly controller reference… I chuckle…
Funny or Die Presents Piranha 3D: For Your Consideration – After seeing/hearing what people are saying about this film, I (and the majority of the rest of the world) might have judged this film a tad early. Now going for an Oscar might be reaching, but it doesn’t hurt.
