Trailer: Winnebago Man

Jack Rebney is the most famous man you’ve never heard of — an RV salesman whose hilarious, foul-mouthed outbursts circulated underground on VHS tapes in the 90s before turning into a full-blown Internet phenomenon in 2005. Today, the “Winnebago Man” has been seen by more than 20 million people worldwide, and is regarded as one of the first and funniest viral videos. Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer goes in search of Rebney — and finds him living alone on a mountain top, unaware of his fame. WINNEBAGO MAN is a laugh-out-loud look at viral culture and an unexpectedly poignant tale of one man’s response to unintended celebrity.

Orange Wednesday recommendation: Predators

If you’re like me and have a mobile contract with Orange, you should really be taking part in Orange Wednesdays!

My recommendation for this week is sci-fi horror action flick, Predators:

A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal.

The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey.

With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.

Now I may be a little biased here (as i’m a huge fan of the original franchise) but i’m sure that there’s appeal to everyone in this film…

Oh… and if you’re not an Orange customer, there may be a loophole allowing you to get 2-for-1 tickets!

Trailer: Machete

The guys over at Slashfilm have the trailer for Machete; I’ve been looking forward to this since I saw the original ‘fake’ trailer in Rodruiguez/Tarantino’s ‘Grindhouse/Planet Terror’ movie…

The action/exploitation film follows Danny Trejo as a badass Mexican out to mess with The Man. “An ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator.” Robert De Niro, Steven Seagal, Don Johnson, Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, and Jeff Fahey co-star.
