Let's watch '08 trailers in a big brown shoe!

With so many holiday films overwhelming us,it's a good idea to step back and look towards the future,despite the hovering thunderclouds of a lengthy writers' strike looming upon the horizon.

For starters, coming this February is the big screen version of Philippa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl which has Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson as the sisters who forever changed the court of Henry the VIII,even only one of them was officially recorded as Queen(and the first to die of Henry's many wives):

Another hugely hyped film is Cloverfield,the J.J. Abrams flick about the ultimate monster mash upon NYC,due out in January. Not much info has been released about the plot(the better to lure you into the theater,my dear)but it seems to be a high tech-trying-to-look-low-tech tale of average folks dealing with diaster.

This is the first official trailer for the movie(the second one is alittle hard to link up here,at the moment)and it's very effective,I have to say. Could be an action movie version of The Blair Witch Project on our hands here,folks:

The follow-up to Batman Begins is officially titled The Dark Knight,which will have Heath Ledger as the Joker and Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent in a pre-Two Face role. While this trailer is really more of a teaser,it does get your motor running for Summer of 2008 to hurry up and get here so we can see this bad boy go to work!:

Yep,they made a fourth Rambo movie,gang. This not-long-awaited sequel has Sly Stallone kicking ass in Burma,to save poor Julie Benz and her fellow do-gooders. Are things this bad that we needed a new Rambo? Well,maybe for Stallone's bank account,I guess.

Wonder if this movie does well,will we get more angry warriors-from-the-eighties sequels? Surely Chuck Norris could use some face time in the multiplex:

Last ,but maybe not least,is The Eye,a remake of an Asian horror film(you don't get alot of those these days...NOT!)starring Jessica Alba as a blind woman who recieves a double corneal transplant. She has her vision restored but sees more than she wants to of some damn strange stuff,which of course makes her doubt her sanity. Sounds like a fun film for the whole family...
