Trailer Watch: The Hunger Games, The Artist, The Skin I Live In, The Rum Diary

As Fall draws near, we are starting to see more and more trailers for movies that will surely be on a lot of critics' minds during awards season. French director Michel Hazanavicius takes us back to the silent age of cinema. Pedro Almodóvar delivers a creepy thriller. Johnny Depp takes another turn with a Hunter S. Thompson adaptation. But we start off with a teaser for the anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games
Release Date: March 23, 2012
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson
Director: Gary Ross

A few weeks back we debuted the film's interactive poster, now it's time for the teaser trailer. The teaser made it's debut during the broadcast of MTV's VMA Awards, and the anticipation for the adaptation of the popular young adult novel couldn't be more hot. As such, we would be remiss to include it in this week's Trailer Watch. From Pixar's Brave to this dystopian future film, 2012 will be "the year of the bad-ass girl with a bow & arrow."

The Artist
Release Date: November 23, 2011
Cast: Malcolm McDowell, John Goodman, Missi Pyle, Jean Dujardin
Director: Michel Hazanavicius

Those in the States might not be too aware of director Michel Hazanavicius and actor Jean Dujardin, but in France the two had a number of hits with their spy spoof franchise OSS 117. The duo team up for a beautiful look at the silent age of cinema. Set in Hollywood from the late '20s through the early '30s, The Artist tells of silent star George Valentin (Dujardin) and "talkie" star Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), and their troubled romance as Hollywood turns away from silent movies, in favor of "talkies." The film is silent itself and shot in black-in-white, and from the trailer looks to be retrograded to appear as if we're watching a film from the era. The Artist won praise at this year's Cannes, where Dujardin picked up the Best Actor Award. Be sure to keep this film on your radar as awards season draws near.

The Skin I Live In
Release Date: October 14, 2011 (limited)
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Jan Cornet
Director: Pedro Almodóvar

Just like it's teaser, the new trailer for Pedro Almodóvar's latest, The Skin I Live In, is a little creepy and somewhat haunting. The use of "Shades of Marble," from Danish electronic artist Trentemoller, perfectly sets the pace and tone for a thriller from one of the most visually striking directors in this modern age. Of course, the only thing missing is Penélope Cruz...

The Rum Diary
Release Date: October 28, 2011
Cast: Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi
Director: Bruce Robinson

Johnny Depp goes back into the world of Gonzo journalism with this adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's novel The Rum Diary. Depp steps back into the drunken voice of Thompson, last seen in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but this is a very different story. The novel, which took nearly 30 years to get published, was inspired by Thompson's brief stint living in San Juan, writing for a small sports newspaper. Depp plays journalist Paul Kemp, who falls into a life of drinking rum and obsessing over the beautiful Chenault (Amber Heard), all the while making a living reporting for the San Juan Star.

Poster Watch: Real Steel (2011)

The teaser poster for the upcoming sports/sci-fi Hugh Jackman vehicle featured a broken robot arm grabbing the boxing rope cable. There was something intriguing about it, something stark that made you want to learn more. However, the new U.S. release poster takes a different turn, featuring Jackman and robot in a "ready to fight" pose that almost reminds us of Rock'em Sock'em Robots.

  9. Imean Shaheed was working last Sunday when federal agents rushed into the Patapsco Flea Market, announced over the loudspeaker that the bazaar was closed for business and shut down vendors selling  Cheap Louis Vuitton Handbags and Tiffany & Co. jewelry."It was like the movies," the 20-year-old Shaheed said Saturday after the Cherry Hill flea market re-opened. Some booths were empty, but the parking lot was full and customers flocked to vendors such as Shaheed who were open for business via Louis Vuitton Outlet Store.

  10. Worldwide more than $100 billion worth of counterfeit products, from Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags to Rolex watches, are sold every year. I have developed a great idea, which will allow shoppers to check the authenticity of the product by using their smartphone before they buy the Louis Vuitton Replica. It will add only a fraction of the cost of the product for the manufacturer, who will be more than happy to pay this little extra cost to protect their brand and increase their sales. However, I do not yet have a working prototype, which requires significant investment. I do not know how and who to approach for venture capital funding. I am so confident about the success of this idea that I feel like selling my house and investing in this technology. Your advice will be very much appreciated.

  17. 5x5 Workout Programs

    The 5X5 workout program concept has been around for decades. Arnold Schwarzenegger describes using them to develop his legendary physique in his book, "The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding." According to Arnold, he learned of them from his bodybuilding idol, Reg Park, a famous physique athlete from the 1940s. Today, there are numerous renditions of the 5X5 workout program available for use by the recreational bodybuilder and strength athlete. Mark explains that the first two sets of a 5X5 program should be warmup sets, gradually increasing in weight to the third, fourth, and fifth sets, which are the working sets. Army's Natick Laboratory that claims the amount of weight lifted and the amount of muscle used to move that weight play an important role in endocrine system response to weight training. The more weight you lift at one time, the more testosterone your body will produce. This makes you stronger, because the testosterone is used to turn nutrients in your diet into muscle tissue. Barbell exercises utilize more muscle and allow you to lift more weight than alternative training methods,camisetas de futbol, according to Mark.

    "The Strongest Shall Survive"In his now legendary book by the same name, former Indianapolis Colts strength coach Bill Starr describes this program in great detail. Focused on three exercises that Bill refers to as the "Big Three," he utilizes the barbell squat, the bench press and the power clean. Bill also incorporates other barbell exercises into The Strongest Shall Survive program as alternatives and supplementary exercises to the Big Three. This is the same program Bill used to develop the strength of his professional football prot in the 1970s, and it works as well today as it did then.

    Arnold's 5X5In the aforementioned book by Schwarzenegger, the legendary bodybuilding movie star describes his program for using the 5X5 workout program. Arnold would perform traditional bodybuilding split routines, training different parts of his body in different workouts over the course of the week. Unlike Starr and Rippetoe, both of whom recommend no more than three workouts per week, Arnold would work out as much as twice a day, five and six days per week. During a chest workout for example, he might perform the bench press, incline press,camisetas baratas futbol, cable flyes, and dumbbell flyes. He would perform five sets of five repetitions of each one. The 5X5 workout program led Arnold to an unprecedented seven Mr. Olympia titles, providing ample evidence that the concept works well.
