A few different promo clips for upcoming films and special DVDs have arrived online, and, of course, I'm here to tell you all about them. Check it:
'Watchmen' Director's Cut – By now I'm sure you've all heard about the awesome director's cut of Watchmen arriving in stores later this month alongside a very limited (to, like, four cities) theatrical run. Unfortunately our massive ticket giveaway here on Fandango ended yesterday, but that in no way means you still can't nab a seat or a DVD or watch it On-Demand. The theatrical run will take place between July 17 and July 23rd, and the DVD will hit shelves and On-Demand on July 21.
In anticipation of the director's cut, one deleted scene has already made its way online – and it's the sort of scene that, while a tad long, definitely should've been included in the final film. The scene in question shows the death of Hollis Mason, who was the original Nite Owl. It's a pretty big part of the graphic novel, but was left out of the film upon its original release because of time constraints. [Watch the scene over here]
Two New TV Spots for 'G.I. Joe' – No matter how many people tell me that G.I. Joe looks incredibly cheesy and lame, I'm still gonna anticipate this sucker because, based on these two new TV spots, it definitely looks to bring a whole lotta bang.
Starring stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Byung Hun Lee, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Ray Park, Said Taghmaoui, Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans and Dennis Quaid, G.I. Joe is based on the old line of action figures and comics depicting a covert team of special forces who band together in an attempt to take down the villainous Cobra operation hell-bent on world domination. G.I. Joe hits theaters on August 7. [Watch the TV spots here and here]
New Clip from 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' – The beloved book that was probably read to you when you were young is about to become a delightful-looking animated flick starring the voices of Anna Faris, Neil Patrick Harris, Andy Samberg, Bruce Campbell, Bill Hader, James Caan and, um … Mr. T?
Foodies like myself are really looking forward to this one as it tells of a professor who creates a weird kind of food weather where scrumptious treats suddenly begin to fall from the sky. Might be cute when it's raining chocolate, but I'm not so sure I'd want giant helpings of spaghetti and meatballs splattered all over my front lawn. You? Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs hits theaters on September 18. [Watch the clip here]
Which are you looking forward to watching most: Watchmen director's cut, G.I. Joe or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?
