Trailer Break: A Sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatb ... Oh, Look! Kristen Stewart's Mom Is a Director

By Jodi Clager | Trailers | February 28, 2013 | Comments ()


Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is one of the movies I don't mind my kid watching over and over again. I was surprised to like it, but Meatballs made me laugh with more than fart jokes and hidden adult humor. (Of course, there is that one poop throwing joke. Heh heh. STEEEEEEVE! Ha!) The voice cast was a delight, the story was great for my science-minded daughter, and jello houses and giant foods are always a good time.

The sequel, thankfully unimaginatively titled Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, shows us what happens when you return to an island filled with food. It's evolution, baby. Shrimpanzees, tacodiles, and other delightfully punny food creatures populate Flint's home. Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, and Neil Patrick Harris reprise their voice roles and Terry Crews takes over for Mr. T.

Let's move right along to movies that you probably shouldn't show to your kids, unless your name is Admin and that's just how your Canadian ass rolls.

James Wan has re-teamed with Patrick Wilson for another horror movie. This time Wilson plays the husband in a psychic investigator duo, along with Vera Farmiga as his wife. The pair look into a possible haunting of the Perron family in 1970's Rhode Island. Lilli Taylor and Ron Livingston play the beleaguered Mr. and Mrs. Perron in The Conjuring.

Kristen Stewart's mother, Jules Stewart, has released the trailer for her directorial debut. The film, called K-11, focuses on Ray Saxx Jr. (Goran Visnjic) and his attempts to escape the brutal section of L.A. County jail he finds himself in. Kate del Castillo (Under the Same Moon) plays a transsexual leader in the vast labyrinth of obstacles Saxx must maneuver through.

It looks...pretty damn interesting.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • I watched an advance copy of K-11 for a film festival and I couldn't get into it. It was terribly paced and it was so clumsy I couldn't tell if it was on purpose or not. And it if you forever want to lose your lady-boner over DB Sweeny this'll do it.

    I can say without any shame that I am so excited for Cloudy 2. Saw it in theaters with another couple on date night and we all laughed our asses off. The best part about it is everytime I re-watch it I find something in the background or a gag that I missed before. I have high hopes and am really hoping it's good. "This tastes significantly better than sardines!"

  • melissa82

    Wow that was a great trailer, very excited for The Conjuring!

  • NateMan

    I wish I'd watched the Cloudy preview after The Conjuring, because that was creepy as all fuck. I don't know if the movie will be any good, but that right there was enough of it for me.

  • Irina

    Ok, I totally laughed at "There's a leek in the boat!!!". Screw you, you did too!

  • Monica

    Come on, like we'd really believe Vera Farmiga would be married to Patrick Wilson. It just isn't realistic.

    I couldn't resist...

  • Kballs

    She isn't even a size 10!

  • csb

    I wonder why Mr. T didn't come back for Cloudy 2.

  • apsutter

    Me too!

  • BWeaves

    I read the headline, "Kristin Stewart's Moobs is a Director," and thought, "Yeah, that's about right."

  • PaddyDog

    I think it says a lot about Kristin Stewart's acting that her own mother wouldn't cast her in her film.

  • Robert

    I know why a studio wouldn't advertise with "From the director of Saw, DEAD SILENCE, and Insidious," but that doesn't mean it's not worth pointing out. James Wan is 3/3 on really moody horror films with great builds and smart twists. I'm hoping The Conjuring makes him 4/4 on horror and 3/3 on twisted haunted house films.

  • Drake

    He's adorable too.

  • Robert

    And smart, polite, and very good with nervous people trying to interview him at noisy conventions. Really, he's just a class act.

  • Drake

    Agreed. Wish I liked his films more.

  • BlackRabbit

    Was that Ving Rahmes in K-11? Also I'm a little irked by the concept of it. It just feels insulting to gays and transexuals in some way. Maybe I'm overthinking. And why would it be so dangerous to work there? If you can't keep it in your pants at work, DON'T WORK THERE.

    And no cute name for Cloudy 2. Disappointed, but I'll watch it.

  • Robert

    It's clearly an exploitation film. Whether it even attempts to subvert it at all (ala Ticked Off Trannies with Knives) or just plays it straight is the only question left. I'm leaning towards unintentionally offensive with the whole "straight guy trapped in (GASP! horror of horrors) the gay/transsexual prison block."

  • linnyloo

    Tagline: DON'T DROP THE SOAP!

  • linnyloo

    ...Yeah, I had the same "exploitation" twinge myself. Gay = Craaaazaaay is a fairly well-worn trope in Hollywood, and the plight of transsexuals in the prison system really is awful on many levels (as is the fact that they are at an extremely high risk of violence/murder in general). And his insistence that he "doesn't belong" (without knowing the context of how he got there in the first place) sort of seems to be confirming the old "gay panic" stereotype too. Yes, it's just a trailer, and we don't know everything about it just yet, but I'm not anticipating this will be a groundbreaking and meaningful subversion of old worn out cliches.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I think Patrick Wilson missed the last few payments on his Dorian Gray painting. He seems to age and de-age like a damn yo-yo.

  • Kballs

    Cloudy is fantastic so I have high hopes for the sequel.

    "That's one big mayor."

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I'm trying to figure out why we don't own it. BAD PARENTING ON MY PART, THAT'S WHY.

  • apsutter

    You gotta buy that shit on blu-ray. It looks AH-MAH-ZING!! Seriously, it's practically 3-d, its so good

  • Kballs

    We lent ours to another family and they moved out of state soon after with our copy in tow. We then recorded it on one of the kids channels where the commercials are 8.3 times as loud as the movie.

    *end fascinating story*
