New 'GI Joe' trailer blowing stuff up online now
Okay, so it's Thursday and I have to run out the door for one last thing this week, and then I can start turning the last two days into actual articles for you guys to read. It seems like every couple of weeks, things come to a head when I have one of those days where I can't get to a computer for more than 20 minutes at a time.
I did manage to write a "Lost" recap in the wee hours last night, but even that, I wish I'd had more time to get it right. I was nodding off while trying to get it posted, and that's a shame. It was a really big episode for the show, and there's more worth discussing about it.
Yesterday, I went over to the Fox lot to watch a chunk of "Land Of The Lost" and then sit down with Brad Silberling to interview him. I'll have that for you tomorrow. It's a good talk, and the stuff I saw was very funny and verrrrrrry weird. In a good way. I also interviewed Rian Johnson, director of "The Brothers Bloom," yesterday, and I think that's a great conversation that we'll have for you a few days before "Bloom" hits screens in May.
Next week's going to be crazy with travel and screenings and interviews, and I'm having to give up on my own nocturnal lifestyle in order to figure out how to do everything. The only way I'll be able to bring you guys content is to get really religious about my sleep. And since I'm a horrific insomniac, I'm buying a big hammer I can use to knock myself out, and I think that should take care of it.
[more after the jump]
I have not been invited to see "Wolverine," which is no shock, so I'm going to head out to a midnight screening of it tonight so I can make sure there's a review here at HitFix tomorrow. Summer's here, and we've hit some important behind-the-scenes milestones here at the site, so I'm confident when I say that we've got an amazing next few months planned for you as readers, and that I'm working to make it worth your time to be part of the HitFix nation with special events that will be exclusive to you. I think the team here at HitFix are all starting to really hit a stride, and it's exciting to know that as we get better at this (hopefully), more of you are reading every day (definitely).
In the meantime, check out this new International trailer for "GI Joe: Rise Of Cobra," because if that doesn't look like the epitome of what a ridiculous summer movie's supposed to look like, I don't know what does. Yes, I hear the "Team America" theme song every time I see the Eiffel Tower go down, but I'll give Steven Sommers this: that man hasn't got a subtle bone in his body, and when I was thirteen, that's exactly what I craved.
[Editor's note: The original embedded imbedded trailer was removed at the request of a legal firm represending Paramount Pictures. Watch the new domestic trailer below.]
I'll be back later today with an article that has given me a case of crippling writer's block (I'll explain then) and an afternoon read. There are new trailers for "Transformers" and more coming as well, and we'll make sure you know where you can see those as soon as they're officially online.
