It’s been ages since I last did a Trailerrific Thursday; I’m quite shocked to see the last proper one was in May 2010. Wow. I’ll be trying to do these at least twice a month, hopefully every week.

The Avengers: This looks great! I loved Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, so of course I would be excited for this. I’m still not sure about Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, but the rest of the cast looks great! Release Date: May 2012

The Divide: A post-apocalyptic thriller about 9 strangers (all tenants of a New York apartment) hiding together in the building’s basement after a nuclear attack. I really like the look of this movie, but I think the trailer might give too much away. My tip: stop watching the trailer at about 1:10, when “One of the best apocalyptic tales in quite a while” appears. Release Date: January 2012

Happy Feet Two: Ehm, yeah… I wasn’t much of a fan of the first Happy Feet. I liked it, but didn’t love it as a lot of people seemed to at the time. The sequel? More of the same it seems. Release Date: Novemburr 2011

Act of Valor: “When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt.” Not really my type of movie, but looks interesting. Release Date: February 2012

Carnage: Two pairs of parents, whose kids got into a fight, meet to discuss the matter, starring Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C Reilly. This could be good, but for now it just looks tiring. Release Date: December 2011

Sleeping Beauty: Lucy is a Sleeping Beauty, a prostitute who sleeps (is drugged) while men do to her whatever they want, with her not remembering anything of what happened. Release Date: October 2011

The Adventures of Tintin: I never read Tintin growing up, but this looks like it could be fun. Release Date: October 2011


The Raven: A string of gruesome murders seem to be inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s work. Poe (John Cusack) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) to solve the murders. Release Date: March 2012
