We have a couple of new trailers here for you, so let’s get cracking shall we. First up is the first trailer for David Ayer’s (End of Watch, Street Kings) new action thriller, Sabotage. The film was originally called Ten, and see’s Arnold Schwarzenegger continue his big comeback in what looks to be his best film in a while.
Filled with tons of action, some witty one-liners, a cool story and some tense moments, I am totally sold on Sabotage, and the fact End of Watch is without a doubt one of the finest police films ever made, only heightens my excitement.
Directed by David Ayer and written by Skip Woods,Sabotage stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood, Magic Mike), Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator Salvation), Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty, FX’s Sons Of Anarchy), Terrence Howard (Red Tails, On The Road), Max Martini, (ABC’s Revenge), Josh Holloway (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Olivia Williams (Anna Karenina), Mireille Enos (Gangster Squad). The original screenplay for TEN is by Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, A Good Day To Die Hard). Producers are Bill Block, Paul Hanson, Joe Roth, Palak Patel and Al Ruddy.

In Sabotage Arnold Schwarzengger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done – until, one-by-one, the ten members mysteriously start to be eliminated.
Only Lovers Left Alive:
A Japanese trailer has also landed tonight for Jim Jarmusch’s arthouse vampire horror, Only Lovers Left Alive. The voiceover for the trailer is Japanese, but don’t panic as the dialogue is in English. The trailer also features a little but of new footage, and you will find the trailer below.
The film is due to released in UK cinemas on February 21st 2014.
The director released a statement about the film in the run up to Cannes:
“Only Lover Left Alive is an unconventional love story between a man and a woman, Adam and Eve. (My script was partially inspired by the last book published by Mark Twain: The Diaries of Adam and Eve — though no direct reference to the book is made other than the character’s names.) These two lovers are archetypal outsiders, classic bohemians, extremely intelligent and sophisticated — yet still in full possession of their animal instincts. They have traveled the world and experienced many remarkable things, always inhabiting the shadowed margins of society. And, like their own love story, their particular perspective on human history spans centuries — because they happen to be vampires.
But this is not your usual vampire story. Set in the very distinct cities of Detroit and Tangier, and taking place almost entirely at night, Adam and Eve must have human blood to survive. But they now live in the world of the 21st century where biting the neck of a stranger would be reckless and regressive — for survival, they must be certain the blood that sustains them is pure and free of disease or contamination. And, almost like shadows, they have learned long ago to deftly avoid the attention of any authorities. For our fi lm, the vampire is a resonant metaphor — a way to frame the deeper intentions of the story. This is a love story, but also the story of two exceptional outsiders who, given their unusual circumstances, have a vast overview of human and natural history, including stunning achievements and tragic and brutal failures. Adam and Eve are themselves metaphors for the present state of human life — they are fragile and endangered, susceptible to natural forces, and to the shortsighted behavior of those in power”
