New Movie Trailers

Funky new movie trailers for a Friday
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - not sure about this, the original had something special, and Gene Wilder was awsomely creepy in it. However, I have been impressed with Johnny Depp in some of his "odd" roles, he can definately jump into a character. I just hope they don't screw with the storyline like they have done with the book already. I want my Oompah-Loompas to be from the right continent!
  • War of the Worlds - Tom Cruise? Not sure about this, I'd love to see an update of this classic, which scared the crap out of me as a kid and was one of my first introductions to sci-fi movies.... I can't forget the scene when the preacher is walking towards the aliens saying his "I walk through the valley of the shadow of death..." speal, then getting vaporized. Creepy man. Just don't make it all about Tom Cruise, this story is about earth being invaded, not about the square jawed handsome dude kicking alien ass. This rings of Hollywood's Lord of the Rings.
  • Last up is the new Batman Begins (new trailer) - looks pretty cool, I'm glad that it doesn't look like it'll totally suck. Looking at how Batman turned into Batman sounds pretty cool though. Do the comics cover this at all?
