“Blindness” | September 19

No matter what genre of film you’re interested in, there’s a little something for everyone in our latest installment of the Trailer Park. We have clips from five upcoming films that will make you laugh, think or run for cover.

When a sudden plague of blindness devastates a city, a small group of the afflicted band together to triumphantly overcome the horrific conditions of their imposed quarantine. Fernando Meirelles’ (“City of God”) latest film, “Blindness” stars Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Don McKellar, Gael Garcia Bernal, Sandra Oh, and Danny Glover.

Looks like it’s more of a psychological thriller, but we’d see anything with the radiant redhead, Moore.

“The Wackness” | July 3

It’s the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip-hop and wafting with the sweet aroma of marijuana–but change is in the air. The newly-inaugurated mayor, Rudy Giuliani, is beginning to implement his anti-fun initiatives against “crimes” like noisy portable radios, graffiti and public drunkenness. Set against this backdrop, Luke Shapiro (Josh Peck) spends his last summer before college selling dope throughout New York City, trading it with his shrink (Ben Kingsley) for therapy, while crushing on his step-daughter (Olivia Thirlby). Famke Janssen, Mary Kate Olsen and Method Man round out the cast in this edgy, bittersweet, and funny coming of age story.

Featuring the music of the Notorious B.I.G. and Nas on the soundtrack; a wonderful trip down memory lane.

“Mirrors” | August 15

The story follows a security guard (Kiefer Sutherland) at a high-end department store who begins to investigate mysterious deaths occurring in front of the stores’ mirrors. He soon discovers that there are murderous reflections out for revenge. Paula Patton co-stars.

This looks like some scary SHEET!

“The X-Files: I Want to Believe” | July 25

The film is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show’s most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the complicated relationship between Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder’s pursuits.

We think the ship sailed several years ago on audience interest with this story, but we’ve been wrong before.

“Bolt” | November 26

For super-dog Bolt (voice of John Travolta), every day is filled with adventure, danger and intrigue—at least until the cameras stop rolling. When the star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet—a cross-country journey through the real world. Armed only with the delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and with the help of two unlikely traveling companions: a jaded, abandoned housecat named Mittens (voice of Susie Essman) and a TV-obsessed hamster in a plastic ball named Rhino, Bolt discovers he doesn’t need superpowers to be a hero. Miley Cyrus (“Hannah Montana”) brings her vocal talents to the role of Penny, Bolt’s human co-star on the television series.

Should be a wonderful holiday family film with plenty of laughs – if you like these sorts of movies!
