The continuation of my previous Trailerrific post. In this one, I’ll be discussing the trailers of movies of which we’ve already seen at least one trailer.

The Forbidden Kingdom
Back in November I saw an early trailer for this movie, which used some unfinished edits and the soundtrack of Hero [link]. Then in the December the official trailer came out [link]. While both trailers made the movie look entertaining enough, I don’t think it captured the essence of the movie that well. Now the new trailer has been released and I’m just psyched to see this film.

The Forbidden Kingdom

Iron Man
I never liked the Iron Man character, but I think this movie is about to change my mind. The first trailer came out a couple of weeks ago [link] and it already convinced me to see the movie. A new TV spot has come out now and it shows even more actions scenes and kick-ass effects. For those of you, who already want to see the movie, I suggest skipping this trailer. You’ve already decided to go and this trailer doesn’t add any more value, except perhaps some more spoiled scenes. [TV Spot] [Official Website]

Wanted
This movie looks pretty great, but I’m still disappointed they’re not following the comic (which is much more dark and evil). The trailer was released a couple of weeks ago [link] and now a TV spot has appeared. Watch it, skip it, whatever you want. It doesn’t show any real new scenes, so it’s pretty “safe” to watch.

Wanted - Angelina Jolie

Prince Caspian
I liked The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. It wasn’t a great movie, but if you take it for what it is (a kids story) it’s pretty spot on. Heck, it’s a whole lot better than the life-size people in beaver costumes from the version I remember. The trailer for the sequel appeared some time ago [link] and during the Superbowl a TV spot was aired. As with the Wanted TV spot they don’t show any scenes that we hadn’t seen in the trailer. [TV Spot]

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
I want this movie to be hilarious just because I love all the actors in it (Jason Segal, Kristen Bell, Russell Brand), but I have a feeling it won’t be as funny as I hope. The trailer was released in December [link] and now a red band version has come out. [Red Band Trailer]

Episode 40: “No name, no other alias”

The Dark Knight trailer redone in Lego. I don’t think more explanation is required:

In the past week a lot of new trailers have come out, mainly because of the Superbowl. Now most of these trailers haven’t appeared on the Apple trailer site yet, but about half of them are from movies with already a trailer released. I’ll be splitting this post up this week into two parts: the trailers that are completely new from movies of which we haven’t seen anything yet, and the trailers of movies of which we’ve already seen at least one trailer.

First up, the new trailers:

Taken
I can’t believe I hadn’t heard more of this movie. It’s about Liam Neeson who after his daughter is kidnapped in Paris, goes on a manhunt trying to find those responsible. So far, it’s only slated for an end of February French release, with no known release dates for other countries. [Trailer]

Superhero Movie
Sometimes a movie comes along that you know you’re going to hate, but that most people are going to love. For me, this is one of those movies. It’s from the makers of Naked Gun and Scary Movie. Need I say more? I seriously can not stand these type of stupid parody movies. If you liked those movies, I’m guessing you’ll like this one. If you didn’t: To Avoid At All Costs.

Mongol
The trailer looks interesting and the film has been nominated for an Academy Award (Best Foreign Language Film), but I’ve heard reviews that weren’t that taken by this movie. It’s about the life of Genghis Khan, but its an interpretation and doesn’t follow the true history. [Trailer]

The Happening
I heard about the script of this movie a long time back, when M. Night Shyamalan was having trouble getting it made. I understand why, cause it isn’t your typical disaster movie. Without giving to much away, the basic gist of it is that people begin randomly committing suicide, killing themselves for absolutely no reason whatsoever. It seems an interesting movie, but it’s a tad difficult to promote.




The Grand
This is one of those films that looks half-interesting. Let me explain. It’s an improvisational ensemble comedy about several competitors in a poker tournament in Las Vegas. There are seven main characters, each playing a different poker stereotype. For me, half of those characters look funny and interesting, the other half not so much. [Trailer]

Second Skin
I know that people like documentaries about unusual people obsessed with their hobby, but do we really need a documentary for ever type of obsession? First Trekkies, then MacHeads and now Second Skin. What’s next? Knitting?? [Trailer]

The second half of this post can be expected tomorrow.
