Trailer: ‘R.I.P.D.’ - July 19th
Directed by Robert Schwentke, Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Stephanie Szostak, Mary-Louise Parker, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley, James Hong and Robert Knepper.
Oh okay, who knew this was going to be so stylized? Very very reminiscent of ‘Men In Black’ but it’s got a few novel twists on the formula so I’ll take it. And Jeff Bridges is more than hamming it up so why not. I just have one question, what stakes are there for Reynolds and Bridges if they’re already dead? Can they die again?
Turbo will be released on July 19, 2013! The story follows an ordinary garden snail who dreams of becoming the fastest snail in the world. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make his dream come true. Ryan Reynolds is voicing the lead role & the film is directed by David Soren from a script he is co-writing with Darren Lemke.
Dreamworks is going to run out of animals soon.
Jim Carrey visited Letterman last night and delivered a memorable Tom Hanks Late Show appearance word for word.
He’s still got it.

I wonder how much they’re offering him. Also, is it the same role that Zach Galifianakis just exited?
Trailer: The Change-Up (Red Band, NSFW) - Aug 5
Directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (The Hangover). Starring Ryan Reynolds, Jason Batemen, Olivia Wilde, and Leslie Mann.
Yes it’s a body switching movie. Yes, this isn’t anything new. But can you resist the uptight Batemen swapping with the loose and charming Reynolds? You have to admit it’s good casting. And it’s R rated which is always a plus (though I could have done without the red band gags in the trailer (towards the end)). Not to mention from the director and writers’ past credits.
Verdict: may not be there opening weekend but am interested and think it could pleasantly surprise, if it doesn’t get trite in its concept. Which it most likely will.

Poster: The Change-Up | /Film
In general this is a pleasant poster. Though exploiting the go-to blue and orange, it works. Trailer incoming.
