New movie trailers

No, I don’t mean the HULK trailer. It’ll be available on Sunday night.

Apple updated its web site this week with a bunch of new trailers. I’m not getting terribly excited by any of them, though. In fact, some of the offerings are spectacularly meager. Take, for instance, the new Miramax “comedy,” VIEW FROM THE TOP. Gwyneth Paltrow and Christina Applegate as stewardesses. It looks awful.

Jet Li continues to court the hip hop world with CRADLE 2 THE GRAVE, and Vin Diesel has a boring looking drug-busting movie called A MAN APART. When the trailer opens up with a scene showing how much his wife means to him, you just have to start counting the seconds in the trailer until she’s killed by the drug dealers, don’t you? In this case, it happens just after the halfway point.

Another worrisome thing about both VIEW and MAN APART is that the trailers are presented in pan and scan only. Look out.
