Stuff To Look At

A treasure trove of film stuff, including the latest Thor: The Dark World trailer, Muppets Most Wanted and more…

Thor: The Dark World

Here is the new Thor: The Dark World trailer. It looks as if it will bring the same blend of action and comedy as its predecessor and Avengers Assemble. Thor: The Dark World is set for release in UK cinemas on 30th October 2013.

Muppets Most Wanted

The teaser trailer for Muppets Most Wanted (formerly known as The Muppets… Again) was released this week. There are plenty of celebrity appearances it seems, with Ricky Gervais taking the human lead. Muppets Most Wanted is due for release in Spring 2014.

Upstream Colour

Upstream Color poster

I have seen Shane Carruth’s Upstream Colour and can report it is well worth the watch. The film is rather abstract, but is absorbing viewing. Upstream Colour is released in UK cinemas on 30th August 2013.

Blue Jasmine

Here is the trailer for Woody Allen’s latest, Blue Jasmine. Set in San Francisco, the film features Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins and Alec Baldwin. From the trailer alone, it looks as if Blanchett will be fantastic. Blue Jasmine is released in UK cinemas on 27th September 2013.

We’re The Millers

Here is a featurette on We’re The Millers, the new comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston. From previously trailers, the film looks as if it could be pretty funny. We’re The Millers is released in the UK on 23rd August 2013.

5 Things That The Muppets… Again! Needs

The Muppets... Again!

The Muppets… Again! is currently filming in London. I haven’t spied Kermit around town, but I live in hope. Emulating the success of The Muppets is going to be difficult. Unless, of course, the filmmakers follow my recipe…

1. More ’80s Robot

’80s Robot was one of the stand out things in The Muppets. He needs to return, bringing with him a host of eighties pop culture artifacts.

2. More Rowlf

Yes, Rowlf did feature in The Muppets, but his role was minimal. Bar Kermit, Rowlf is my favourite Muppet so he needs a bigger role in the sequel.

3. Great Original Songs

The Muppets soundtrack is a fantastic mix of original songs and classic hits. The Muppets… Again! needs to replicate this by giving us more songs like ‘Pictures In My Head’ that may or may not have made me have something in my eye.

4. A Muppet Babies Interlude

Muppet Babies was one of the hot eighties cartoons; which was no mean feat. The Muppets…Again! should pay homage what would have been some viewers’ first introduction to the Muppets.

Muppets Tiny Tim

5. A Cameo from The Muppet Christmas Carol’s Tiny Tim

Have mercy.

The Muppets… Again! is due for release on 21st March 2014.
