‘Avengers’ assemble!

I like when Iron Man says funny things.

Assuming the Internet doesn’t collapse today with the debut of the first trailer for next summer’s sure-to-be-a-record-breaker, “The Avengers,” feast your eyes on it:



Pro: ScarJo.

Con: Real 3D.

May 4, tick-tock. —Rod Lott

Pick 'Six'

Features an angry man with a corndog.

Okie writers/directors Mark Potts and Cole Selix have released the official trailer for their new feature film, Cinema Six, a comedy about the lives of people who work in the hallowed multiplex of the title.

Although not shot in the Sooner State, it follows their previous productions that were, like S&M Lawn Care and The Stanton Family Grave Robbery. Consider this one a step up, maybe? We hear it has a surprise cameo by a famous funny TV star who can not be found in the trailer or the film's IMDb page.

In nine days, Cinema Six has its world premiere, at the Dallas International Film Festival. And one day, we can say, "We knew them when." And speaking of "say," prepare for dirty talk to ensue when you click the play button, workers of America. —Rod Lott

Dark Tide

Just when you thought it was safe to watch a Halle Berry movie.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm glad that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez found love on the set, because that makes Dark Tide not a total loss. Otherwise, this big-budget, theater-skipping adventure is perhaps the most toothless shark movie ever made, and remember, I've sat through Dinoshark and Sharktopus.

Not ‘Bad’

The walking dead invade the 405.

I couldn’t tell from the postcard we got in the office, but the locally shot film Bad to the Jones is a zombie comedy. The trailer below makes that completely clear.

If the undead makes your attention come alive, boy, are you in luck! Marlon Ladd’s Bad to the Jones screens at 8 p.m. tomorrow, May 3, at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 Martin Luther King, with arrivals at 7 p.m. Should be fun, but there’s one hitch: Tickets must be ordered at badtothejones.com, as you can’t get them at the theater. Click away for a tale of two brothers and a city under siege! —Rod Lott

D.O.A.

Twenty-four hours to live, in 96 minutes or less.


Thriller

Rod Lott
A guy walks into a police station to report a murder: himself! With that setup, one could make a tight, terrific crime film — and D.O.A. is that movie ... in 1950. The 1988 remake doesn't fare as well, but at least it's been preserved on Blu-ray by Mill Creek Entertainment.

Sector 7

For sci-fi thrills, '7' is no heaven.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Alien has no shortage of rip-offs, but Sector 7 has the distinction of hitting video while Prometheus is in theaters. While Prometheus isn't great, it's better than Sector 7. Heck, even the much-maligned Alien vs. Predator is better than Sector 7.
