De Niro as an Intern? Jem and The Holograms first trailer! Queen Elizabeth in Minions??

Welcome to Almighty Popcorn!

Lewis
THURSDAY TRAILERS TIME MOTHER LOVERS!!!! *dances*

Alan
Ever the graceful.  Yes!  It is that day in the week again where most of trailers seem to blossom out there on the interwebs.  So we’ve taken some of the latest ones we find and show them, parading that we do.

Lewis
Dance!  Alan you must dance!

 

The Intern Official Trailer
 

Alan
Directed and written by Nancy Meyers, best known for What Women Want, The Holiday, and It’s ComplicatedThe Intern follows 70 year old widower Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) realising that retirement isn’t for him, decides to take an intern opportunity on an online fashion site, headed by Jules Ostin (Anna Hathway).

Let’s not get confused with the other intern film, The Internship.  Different kettle of fish on this one.  Instead of a marginally funny film about two middle aged men looking for a job in one of the most prosperous organisations in the world, we have what looks like a genuinely funny and heart felt film where the roles of intern and boss are switched by age.

Lewis
This looks really good!  It has everything that would make Lewis laugh.  It’s kinda like they took Space Cowboys and The Devil Wears Prada and HULK SMASHED them together to get poof!  The Intern.

Alan
How pithy.  The film comes out the 2nd of October this year and will also star Adam DeVine, Nat Wolff, and Rene Russo.

Lewis
Mrs. Rene Russo gave Mr. Robert De Niro a boner!

Jem and The Holograms Official trailer release

Lewis
…….WHAT THE F..

Alan
Your mum reads this website!

Lewis
..fudge cake was that?!

Alan
Quite.  For those that aren’t in the know, or a little too young.  Jem and the Holograms was an 80s cartoon show that ran for many years that featured Jerrica Benton, her singer alter ego Jem, her band mates the Holograms and their wonderful adventures.

Lewis
Everything is so…pink!

Alan
Stop Google imaging them then!  The cartoon was a hit for many fans during the days and it looks like Universal have picked up the rights to the show to make an adaption to it for film.

Lewis
Why do I get that horrible feeling of Hannah Montana with a pink wig and 3 other people whose names I probably won’t remember?

Alan
Well, we’ll see what happens.  With the trailer it looks like shy, insecure, yet musically talented Jerrica, is video-taped by her sister and seeing the talent that Jerrica has, decides to post it online, and then gets viewed millions of times.

This gets the eye of a music company that decides to give a contract to Jerrica and 3 other family members.  And thus Jem is born, the alter ego of Jerrica that the music company created to give her that edge to appeal to the masses.

It all looks too good to be true, until the result of fame and covering up her true self gets to her and starts to break apart her family.

From the amount of trailers we’ve seen…it looks like they’ve pretty much given half the story away within 2 and a half minutes.  Girl, has this ability she didn’t know she had, gets picked up and has money thrown at her, love interest comes to help her, fame and fortune gets in the way of family and friends, nervous mental breakdown, reinvents herself, wins back the love of her friends and family and the admiration of her fans and has a happy ending.

Now we’re not saying that’ll be the case.  We’re just saying that it might be, and we like to boast it off when we’re right when it gets released.

Lewis
Instant smug!

Alan

However, reading some of these comments on Buzzfeed, it really looks like the fan base aren’t happy how “bland” and “mediocre” they’ve taken the script too.

Lewis
And I thought you could say nasty things!

Alan
The film stars Aubrey Peeples, Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko and Samantha Newark.  It’ll be released during the Christmas period.

Third Minions trailer released
 

Alan
Now here’s a trailer that many many fans of Despicable Me have been waiting for since its conception.  Minions stars…well, minions.  Those oddly shaped, random eyed, funny talking yellow covered attaches to Gru from Despicable Me have now got their own film to tickle the funny bones of kids and adults and weird fans alike

Lewis
I wants my own minions!

Alan
I’ll put them on your Christmas list.  Anywho, Minions centres around the adorable munchkins over the course of time, serving evil doer after evil doer, with some-what catastrophic ends to their master’s lives.  All they want to do is serve the ultimate evil-doer, so it’s up to minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob to go find that evil-doer.

Enter Scarlett Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock) who they meet several years before Gru.  Scarlett wishes to use the minions in an effort to steal the Queen of Great Britain’s royal crown.  And by the looks of the trailer, the Queen was a right decker back then.

But something goes wrong and Scarlett throws them in the dungeon.

Lewis
I still wants one!  And I let it doo all my devious schemes.

Alan
Like what?

Lewis
Ok, I’d tell them to put all the ice cream in the shopping trolley when you’re not looking.

Alan
…That it?

Lewis
Oh there’s more, but I’m not telling you cos that be telling.

Alan
I’m so enthralled by your “schemes”.  Anyways, the film itself is out June 26th and also stars Jon Hamm, Steve Coogan, Michael Keaton, and Jennifer Saunders.

Lewis
I’m so gonna cover myself head to toe in yellow paint and watch the movie as a minion.

One Response to De Niro as an Intern? Jem and The Holograms first trailer! Queen Elizabeth in Minions??

  1. Ali Hon says:

    What they did to Jem was a travesty! The original boasted a high powered CEO looking to revive her father’s company through Jem and the Holograms whereas what we have been given has no direct link to that at all – just average teen averageness. Not even holograms! It’s in the bleeding name!!
