The release of ‘Prometheus’ is getting closer and closer, so it makes perfect sense that the promotional material for the film is ramping up. The latest is a new Trailer that runs almost 3 minutes long and gets way into the plot of the film, potentially veering into spoiler territory, depending on how much you already know about the project and its rumored relationship to director Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’. I’d say that you may not want to watch this look, especially if you’re into a virginal theater experience, but everyone else, after the jump we have this Trailer for your viewing pleasure. I think it’s a terrific one, but it’s certainly less mysterious than the other. Take a look below…

MGM, looking to pull itself out of financial woes, is remaking two of its most famous horror titles. While a remake of Carrie is already in production, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Sam Raimi has been attached to be the producer on a remake of Poltergiest, with a script by Pulitzer Prize winning writer David Lindsey-Abaire. The original Poltergiest, which debuted in 1982 and was directed by Tobe Hooper, the plot focuses on a family whose home is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct the family’s youngest daughter.

If one didn’t know this already, Judd Apatow likes his films to be on the long side, both the ones he directs and the ones he produces. It’s hard to make a comedy sustain its energy when you’re approaching 2 hours, but Apatow has had good luck in that regard. ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ is further proof of this, but it’s also the first instance where I think a bit of editing would have made for a better movie overall. That being said, this is still a very good flick, one that’s funny and surprisingly honest about relationships. Co-writer and star Jason Segel continues to grow in both regards, Emily Blunt gives a terrifically charming performance, while the supporting cast is as funny as ever. This is right up there with the other top notch Apatow joints, even if it’s a little more flawed than usual…it makes up for that with heart and an evolving maturity that I very much appreciate. Segel and director/co-writer Nicholas Stoller aren’t going nearly as out there as they did on ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ (which Segel wrote), but they’re aiming for something different here. They’re more interested in telling the story that most romantic comedies don’t get to. Where the average rom-com stops at the engagement, this film is just beginning. I just wish it knew where to go from there, as it stumbles from time to time. It’s a real good comedy, but it could have been a great one.
