New Friday the 13th Trailer is LIVE!

First a new poster and now a new trailer! That’s what I call progress! Ready to see what this latest trip to Crystal Lake seems to have in store for us Jason loving faithful? You know you are!

Once again it’s Yahoo Movies that scored the first look, but all you have to do is scroll down to watch the body count continue! I have to say I’m the first one to give Platinum Dunes crap about their “gritty” re-imaginings, but this one? It looks good. Really friggin’ good.

Here’s the official synopsis; From Platinum Dunes and director Marcus Nispel (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”) comes a re-imagining of the classic horror film “Friday the 13th.” Searching for his missing sister, Clay heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins that lie in wait behind moss-covered trees. And that’s not the only thing hiding under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has, with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they’ve entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history-the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete … Jason Voorhees.

“>Friday the 13th will be stalking theatres everywhere on February 13th, 2009. Check out the official Friday the 13th remake website right here for more!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    The new F13 trailer is like the anti-Viagra. It will smash your bitchsplitter to pieces with it’s lameness.

    That DEAD SNOW trailer blows this Platinum Dunes made, Michael Bay bricking a load in the collective moron hive-mind crap right out of the water and gives me a THOUSAND ACRE WOOD, BITCHES!

  • Doc Block

    This looks insane! I can’t wait! I will definitely be there opening night.

  • turnpiketramp

    It looks horrible and makes me want to kill myself.

  • NeoKefka

    I for one am totally looking forward to seeing Jason cull the genepool.

  • Sirand

    The F13 were always shallow body count films, so it’s the only franchise that would really work with Platinum Dunes. If they screw this one up, they’re worthless.

    • PelusaMG

      “Jason X” has a pretty high body count… especially when the ship crashes into a spacestation!

      • Messiahman

        He wasn’t saying that the body counts were low. He was saying that the films themselves were shallow.

        Which they were.

        Honestly, there’s nowhere to go but up.

    really dig the throw back to the original trailer’s countdown style. I liked the teaser trailer better though. If you removed any scenes with a hockey mask in them, you could swear they were outtakes from the TCM remake. Aside from the “ch-ch-ch ah-ah-ah” theme, the music sounded similar as well. of course its just a trailer, so who knows. im still pumped about it though. Its gotta be better than the last 4 friday entries.

  • The Buz

    There was some nice shots in there and it looks like a Friday movie. Nothing I would get too excited about just because I’m not a huge fan of the series, but shit it looks like a fun time.

  • The Unknown Murderer

    I – Am – So – Happy – Right – Now.

    Mears looks BAD ASS, the Body Count nod in the trailer is BAD ASS, and it’s only TWO MONTHS TO WAIT.

    Am I gushing enough?

  • Sam Hell

    We all have a beef with Platinum Dunes mostly because their first remake project, TCM, was a film that had substance in its original form. And they couldn’t reproduce that. They confused substance with “gritty,” and thought that would carry the spirit of the original into a new generation. But FRIDAY THE 13TH is a different case. It really has no substance at all, other than nostalgia. Folks get killed at a camp by a dude who drowned (?) when he was a kid. It’s a very basic, and illogical, horror film. It’s a series that always seemed to be made up on the fly. PD really have no direction to go with this but up.

    I think the trailer looks fine, considering the source material.

  • FilmCritic3000

    Two words kept echoing through my head though Creepy through the entirety of the trailer…

    Platinum Dunes.

    I’ll remain cautiously optimistic as I loved the job the screenwriters did on “Freddy Vs. Jason” but again….Platinum Dunes.

  • Uncle Creepy

    Like I said, I really dig! The return of the body count thing to the trailer brought a huge smile to my face and Mears looks insane as Jason. We may actually have a winner here … dare I say it! LOL

    • Rottenjesus

      Remember when we were ALL PUMPED UP AND READY TO ROCK(tm) when we saw the R-rated AVP 2 trailer? Then we saw the movie.

      And of course, it’s PLATINUM DUNES. Yeah, I’m not breaking out the lube and party hats just yet.

      • PelusaMG

        Yep… and when the film came out we realised that anything good about it had already been shown in the trailer (i.e. all the money shots).

        “I fell in to a burning ring of fire
        I went down,down,down
        and the flames went higher.
        And it burns,burns,burns
        the ring of fire
        the ring of fire.”

        The difference is that Aliens and Predator were legitimately great movies where as none of the F13 films are particularly good.
