Third up is the kick-ass martial arts action flick, Ninja Assassin, starring Korean pop/mega star Rain in his first lead (action) role. Directed by James McTeigue (V For Vendetta), the film follows a ninja who defects from the orphanage where he was trained, only to be hunted by his ninja brethren from a clan who’s very existence is considered a myth. But does the plot really matter? This is all about the action – don’t believe me? Take a look at the following TV spot and see:
Ninja Assassin opens on November 25th, 2009.
Next up is the Megan Fox (Transformers 2) starring teen horror-comedy, Jennifer’s Body, which is about a possessed cheerleader who makes a habit of preying on her male classmates. Scripted by Diablo Cody (who won an Oscar for Juno), this looks to be fun in the same way that the delightfully horrific Teeth was last year. Check out the latest clip from it:
Jennifer’s Body hits theaters next week, September 18th, in the U.S., and on November 6th, 2009, in the UK.
Lastly we have a new clip from the hilarious looking comedy, The Men Who Stare at Goats, starring George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Spacey and J.K. Simmons. Based on Jon Ronson’s non-fiction novel, the film follows a reporter who may have stumbled upon the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady, a man who claims he was part of a military unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions.
The amazing trailer debuted at the end of last month, and here is an equally funny new clip from the film featuring Clooney’s character using a deceptively harmful weapon on McGregor’s character. Take a look:
The Men Who Stare at Goats is released in the U.S. on November 6th, 2009, while in the UK it is released on January 22nd, 2010.
Okay, you’ve had your fill of clips for now – which is your favorite? Which movie are you looking forward to most?
