A pair of pretty high-profile movie trailers hit the ‘net quite recently, one for the long-awaited Quentin Tarantino / Robert Rodriguez action-horror combo "Grindhouse," and the other for the second star-studded sequel to "Ocean’s Eleven."
If you need any explanation, the trailer gives the following helpful definition:
"GRIND HOUSE (n):
A theater playing back-to-back films exploiting sex, violence, and other extreme subject matter."
Sound awesome yet? In "Grindhouse," the gore-happy auteurs will each have their own separate full-length feature — Rodriguez’s "Planet Terror" promises zombies, guns, and Rose McGowan; Tarantino’s "Death Proof" features killer cars, Kurt Russell, and more Rose McGowan (not to mention Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead).
Next, click here for the first trailer for George Clooney and Company in "Ocean’s Thirteen," which also looks pretty slick, albeit for decidedly different reasons. This time around, Danny Ocean and his band of merry thieves are after one thing: revenge. And you’ll love who they chose for the villain.
In other trailer news, if you want an early peek at Jessica Alba & Co. back in spandex, the "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" trailer will be attached to "Night at the Museum" this weekend, which might convince a few extra people to go see the flick. Maybe.
