Trailer Tuesday - Crossing the streams

Rush And thus, my Formula One world collides with my Film Watch world again. This looks like a pretty solid effort, I’ve been watching Ron Howard tweet about it for what seems like forever. Thankfully, it’s all about to get going and we’ll be able to watch the results soon. Drama, slow-motion, terrifying crash scenes. It’s all in there. Let’s just hope it’s good!

Trailer Tuesday - Planes, blimps and monstermobiles

Trailer Tuesday - Planes, blimps and monstermobiles

This first one looks like your traditional action movie fodder, but there are heaps of famous people in there! Olympus has Fallen I hadn’t heard of this spin off from Cars that Disney are making, called Planes (or if I had heard of it, I’d forgotten!). It does what it says on the tin, and even has a bonus appearance from one David Croft! Lofty Crofty, the blimp! Amazing. Is it wrong to be a bit judgemental about this though, because it looks like it has the potential to be great but I feel like it won’t be due to the lack of Pixar input?

Trailer Tuesday - A step towards Oblivion

After watching Skyfall, we browsed through some of the upcoming trailers on the Apple TV, and came across Oblivion, the new Tom Cruise movie. Good grief, that man works hard! Oblivion There’s another, earlier, trailer here that tells a bit more of the story. It looks interesting enough, although the amount of CGI it’s going to have worries me a little bit.

Trailer Tuesday - Life after LOST

This week only one trailer crossed my path and it was for Emperor. Unfortunately, I just can’t get past the fact that this is Jack! Particularly in the opening scene where it is Jack, in a plane, heading towards an island! LOST really has ruined my life. Emperor

Trailer Tuesday - Catching up

It’s catch up time on the whole trailer front, as I’ve been seeing them pass me by but not quite finding time to post them. First up, The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp. It’s fun to see Depp try new characters, but I’m not at all convinced by this one. I don’t know the original Lone Ranger particularly well, so curious what fans think of this remake. The Lone Ranger

Trailer Tuesday - Going the distance

Turbo This is one of the latest efforts from DreamWorks Animation, and features a snail who feels the need for speed. The blurb is bizarre (but then I suppose these things always are): A freak accident might just help an everyday garden snail achieve his biggest dream: winning the Indy 500. Interesting idea, can’t really tell too much from the trailer, except, you know, Ryan Reynolds.

Trailer Tuesday - Into Darkness

Mr C reckons this trailer reminds him of Prometheus which is very worrying to me. I can see what he means, but also… it looks brilliant! And there appears to be distinctly less lens flare than the previous outing. Phew! Star Trek Into Darkness

Gangster Squad Where do I begin with this? Oh yes, Ryan Gosling. Mmm. And Emma Stone with her proper red hair. And the guy who was incredible and freaky in Men in Black 3. And Ryan Gosling! Oh, and the film looks okay too.

Trailer Tuesday - After the date night

I’ve noticed a couple of trailers for potentially watchable romantic comedies recently. This is not my favourite genre, but when done well, it’s a good way of winding down for a couple of hours. Admission Corny as anything, I know, but I like Tina Fey and I love Paul Rudd. Maybe they can sell it. This also looks pretty cliched. Playing for Keeps I bet he doesn’t take the ESPN job, which is crazy.

Trailer Tuesday - Double the zombies

Trailer Tuesday - Double the zombies

This week I spotted two trailers for films and both of them are about zombies, but they each take a completely different form. The first, World War Z, plunges Brad Pitt in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. The trailer looks okay but it doesn’t really give a hint to any kind of actual story. World War Z There was also these tweets from Molly Wood: I haven’t read the book, but that doesn’t seem too good!
