Trailer Watch: A Serious Man, The Fantastic Mr. Fox

The Coen Brothers’ new film, A Serious Man, now has a near-brilliant trailer to promote it. From the pounding rhythm supplying the background noise, to the quirky humour, this will likely be another great-oddball film from Joel and Ethan Coen. Watch the trailer on Apple here.

The first bit of footage from Wes Anderson’s highly anticipated stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, has finally arrived. Though the animation is not as smooth, or as full, as something like Coraline, I expect this film to be very stylized and have that unique Wes Anderson “feel”. While some people will probably be disappointed by the trailer, admittedly I was expecting something a little different, I still think it will be a good film in it’s own right. I don’t think it will really appeal to kids, but I also don’t think that that’s the audience they're going after. With its all-star voice cast and Wes Anderson direction, I’m guessing it will probably have a following in the young adult market. Watch the trailer on Yahoo! here, and form your own decision.
