Well the Bigger Boat Idea Didn't Work: Captain Phillips Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | August 27, 2013 | Comments ()


A funny thing emerges from Paul Greengrass’ Wikipedia page: he only makes two types of movies. There are those that are hyper realistic and based on award winning non-fiction books about real dramatic events. And there are Jason Bourne movies. Keep your Clozapine to yourself, the man’s schizophrenia is a national treasure!

Hey, but now that we’ve finished joking about mental illness, here’s the international trailer, involving the love story between a really big boat, a really little boat, and all the wonderful people on both. Fun fact: if you read the apparently Asian language subtitles in a mirror, they’re actually a love letter from Paul Greengrass to Matt Damon written in ancient Celtic runes.

I always feel sort of bad about not being interested in movies like this. It’s got all the pieces, the direction, the acting. And yet I can’t bring up the slightest enthusiasm for the actually viewing of it other than acknowledging that I’d totally watch it if nothing else was on TNT on a Saturday afternoon.

But I really hope that one of the Navy SEALs is played by Matt Damon and his name tag says “Ryan”.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
