Christmas catch up

I have, as regular visitors will have gathered, been mostly absent from this blog for the last few months. I've been working on something that's consumed virtually all my time and energies and when something had to give, this was it. Sorry about that folks. Will try harder in 2012 (hey, my first resolution, albeit it a week and a half early!).

It's also the time of year when I would normally be compiling my top ten (or 20) list but since I've yet to see a handful of films that stand a good chance of making it — that lack of time thing, again — I'm postponing the list making for a while longer. Again, apologies.

On the positive side I have seen The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo which I liked enormously.

Anyway, the web has been pulling a plethora of crackers out of its digital hat of late, with trailers for many of 2012's biggest releases — The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit et al — as well as, in Prometheus' case, a trailer (or two) for a trailer. (There's also a leaked version of the final trailer on youtube if you can't wait till the official launch tomorrow.) I'm posting a few for your viewing pleasure. Call it a festive round up.

As I write, 2012 is shaping up to be a busy and very exciting year, and I hope to share some of excitement here with you over the coming months. For now...

Be safe. Have fun. And Happy Holidays.

Dragon Tattoo extended trailer

I have to be honest, it's the film that I've been most looking forward to throughout 2011, given the combination of Fincher and Zallian and source material. I've got my screening date in my diary; I've download the 35-minute six-track sampler from the score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross; and I've watched this eight-minute trailer a few times already.

John Carter trailer

I'm on board with this. How about you?
