It’s time to up the ante on the action aspects of the new Man of Steel film promotions.
While previous trailers have focused on the story of how Kal-El will make a home on Earth, this new one is all about the challenge he will face in the form of General Zod. Can he take on some of the most vile criminals to ever exist on Krypton? I guess we’ll find out.
The latest trailer for The Wolverine goes a bit deeper into the emotional arc of the film while also, finally, showing us a quick shot of the Silver Samurai.
While X-Men Origins: Wolverine was, well, really bad, this second solo film is showing some promise. While it’s clear some changes have been made to the source material of the Japan saga, it’s still looking pretty darn good. Lets just hope it really is.
Thor: The Dark World is the follow-up to the first film, and will be Marvel’s second film of 2013. Can the studio capture at least some of the excitement that made The Avengers the third highest grossing film of all time?
I’ve never been a huge fan of the Thor character, but I have to say that the first film entertained me, and I thought Chris Hemsworth did a stellar job in the title role. So much so that I’ve actually gone back and read some old issues of the series, which is saying a lot because I never thought the character could carry a series. I was proven wrong, I dig the comics more now, and I love the movies.
How will a second Thor film do? We’ll find out on Nov. 15, but until then try on this first trailer and see what you think. Jane (Natalie Portman) in Asgard? Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) looking annoyed at this turn of events? Loki (Tom Hiddleston) being snarky? I’m in for the ride.
R.I.P.D. has received its first trailer… or perhaps I should say Men in Black 4 has received its first trailer.
Well I normally don’t like to be overly biased about trailers, this first footage for R.I.P.D. couldn’t feel more like another entry in the Men in Black series except for if it actually was.
Lets see… an out of place rookie assigned to a law enforcement agency he didn’t know existed. Check.
Teamed up with a long time veteran of the force. Check.
Possibility of the world being taken over. Check.
In my opinion, about the only thing I found enticing in this trailer was Jeff Bridges as Roy Pulsipher, but I am so sick and tired of Ryan Reynolds at this point that I can’t even stand to look at him any more. And while Bridges looks highly amusing, I can’t imagine watching this just for him when it looks to be just a complete retread of so many other movies out there.
Oh, and it’s based on a comic book of the same name… as was Men in Black.
Man of Steel has received a third trailer, and once again your hopes may soar.
After some very disappointing photos came out for Man of Steel, nerves started to kick in for many on whether or not the trailers were fibbing to us. Now we have a third one that gives us a glimpse of Krypton, the acting, General Zod and… dangit, I’m excited again.
Star Trek: Into Darkness is ramping up the drama in its third and final trailer.
The previous U.S. trailer and international version both seemed to focus on the action in Star Trek: Into Darkness. The newest trailer, however, seems to give us a good dose of action again, but also a very healthy dosage of the drama and tension we’ll see in this movie.
We still have zero clue what exactly is going on in this plot wise, and that should be fine, but as hyped as everyone is getting over this, it had better be something good.
Star Trek: Into Darkness will be hitting theaters on May 17, 2013.
I’m not a huge fan of remakes or reboots, but I have to say the new version of Carrie looks promising.
The original film version of Carrie hit theaters in 1976, and having viewed it again fairly recently, it holds up. Sure the clothes and hairstyles are laughable, but the core story still resonates, and that is all that matters. Of course, we are talking about a film based on a Stephen King novel who can be an excellent writer at times (at other times, not so much).
While reboots and remakes don’t thrill me, the 2013 version of Carrie is looking promising now that we’ve gotten a good look it at last. The film was originally supposed to come out on March 15, but Screen Gems finally realized it might make sense to release this close to Halloween and shifted it to Oct. back in Jan. Normally delays mean there is a problem with the film, but I do think this is a case of just making more sense.
Check out the trailer, and I think you will be impressed as well. I still think Sissy Spacek had more of the right look, but I think Chloe Grace Moretz’s (Kick-Ass 2) acting will win out.
Lets be blunt, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was not a good movie. A shoddy plot, sub-par acting by most of the cast and just stupid continuity mistakes made for a not so enjoyable experience. Here’s hoping The Wolverine is better.
The second solo outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is based on one of the most stories ever for the character. If this is pulled off correctly, it wil be a major turning point for Wolverine through out the X-Men films, and it could be a chance for Jackman to really shine. (Not that anyone thinks he’s a bad actor, far from it.) This sequel is going to have to overcome the bad memories everyone has of the first solo movie, so I wish it nothing but luck in that uphill battle.
At least the domestic and international trailers hit on the same day for once.
The international trailer takes a decidedly different bent than the Kick-Ass 2 red band trailer did when it comes to marketing the movie.
It seems that in some of the overseas markets that perhaps Kick-Ass 2 should actually be titled “Hit-Girl… with some other people in the movie as well.” There is no doubt that Hit-Girl, portrayed by Chloë Grace Moretz, was the breakout character of the first film, and that popularity is also obvious in the comic book form of the story as well, but this trailer goes a bit over the top. This story is still very much about Dave (Aaron Johnson) and his journey through the world of being a vigilante and the ramifications that come from that.
If you’re thinking this is a coincidence that two films are coming out this close together with similar plots, it’s not. While Hollywood always tries to say it is, it just happens to often to not be a case of “hey, someone tried to sell me a script about X the other day, we should do something along those lines.” Remember the whole No Strings Attached/Friends With Benefits controversy? Yeah, total coincidence.
Either way, enjoy the latest from “Hey, I made Independence Day!” Emmerich.
The Star Trek franchies have never been known to be action packed, but it appears Star Trek Into Darkness might be changing all that.
While the second Star Trek film from J.J. Abrams is sure to have its quiet moments, the new international trailer is definitely playing up the action aspects of the follow-up to the hit 2009 film. Is this the new direction of the franchise, or merely a way to lure more people into the theater? We’ll just have to wait and find out in May.
