Trailer Bulletin: 16 Blocks

Bruce Willis, Mos Def, and David Morse star in "16 Blocks," a high-concept action thriller from director Richard Donner. Check out the brand new trailer for the flick over at BET.com.

The IMDb sums up the plot like so: "Based on a pitch by Richard Wenk, the mismatched buddy film follows a troubled NYPD officer who's forced to take a happy, but down-on-his-luck witness 16 blocks from the police station to 100 Centre Street, although no one wants the duo to make it. The story is a redemptive tale for characters who are polar opposites. The cop, a dark guy and a heart attack waiting to happen, who is escorting this witness who is a 14-time loser with a sunny outlook."

Richard Donner is, of course, the popular filmmaker behind flicks like "Superman," "The Goonies," and the entire "Lethal Weapon" series.

Warner Bros.' "16 Blocks" opens wide on March 3rd.

[b]It feels like another hit[/b]
I love sitting on the edge of my seat. Seeing this trailer makes me want to throw "Collateral" in my DVD Player tonight during dinner. I have a Feeling 2006 will be the comeback year for the box office.

Good ol' reliable action flick.

2006 has a lot of good movies coming out, but I don't think it's going to turn around the industry slump. 16 blocks looks like a good movie, but it's not going to have a strong box office. X-Men 3, Mission Impossible 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean 2 will be box office hits, but I don't think they'll help the industry slump either. I mean, look at 2005, you have Star Wars 3, Batman Begins, and a few other big names, but those didn't change anything. I don't think it's the quality of the movies, and unlike the industry I don't think it's the fault of illigal downloading either. Statistics show that pirating has only helped the music industry. Ironic isn't it.

I personally believe that home entertainment systems have slowed down box office sales. I have a nice big digital TV and enjoy watching that more than the theater experience. I waited in line for Star Wars openning night, but that movie looks and sounds better at home.
