Mentionable German Releases
Arthur Christmas - Mentionable only because of James McAvoy (who made out an important part of my previous post discussing my currently-in-production Top 100 list). The trailer looks rotten. Not even really cute... I'll stick with THE POLAR EXPRESS, HOME ALONE 1 & 2 and LITTLE LORD FOUNDLEROY, like every christmas. Anyhow, I'd bet my LOTR 6 Disc collector's Edition that this is going to be the family-christmas-fun-in-cinema 2011.
The Thing - Had expected more since the reviews have been quite positive. Apparently this is a film that has been remade various times, or at least various films have had this name. The trailer doens't promise anything new.
Submarine - Typical - the only film I like of these is the one not releasing at our apparently very bad-taste multiplex... Many people recommended it, but I was still surprised by the trailer. Looks like a good coming-of age film for a change (I'm thinking of NOWHERE BOY right now). I'm sure it's going to release at the repertory some time next year though.
Hindi Releases in India
Na Jaane Kabse... - Déjà vu! This was supposed to release two weeks ago, wasn't it? Well, the trailer can't have improved since then.
Who's There? - I'm smelling a very B(!) horror film. If you need a good laugh, watch the trailer.
Shakal Pe Mat Ja - No. No, no, no. No! ... That's... so tasteless. A film that makes fun out of 9/11, I mean the accident itself (not like in Tere Bin Laden, which was about the consequences)? Mixed with bad music, weird actors (including a B-Shahrukh-lookalike) and a fart joke?! Please.
Releases at the local repertory
Baikonur - Looks funny, but a bit over-the-top too. Also, the German dub isn't very good in the trailer (couldn't find any original trailer).
Le Havre - There is definitely some potential here... I just don't like it when trailers include quotes from critics' reviews. Even though I do understand why they do that.
