It’s time for another Trailerrific Thursday! Which trailers have you seen this week? Which movies are you really excited for?

Rise of The Guardians

Australian Easter Bunny! I love the idea of having childhood mythical creatures as a sort of team of superheroes, and it looks like it could be a lot of fun. Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny and Alec Baldwin as Santa Claus both sound awesome and hilarious. The only one I’m not too sure about is Jack Frost; Chris Pine is doing his voice and I have a feeling they should have gone with someone younger. Release Date: 21 November (US), 30 November (UK)

Jack Reacher

This is based on the popular book series of the same name by Lee Child. I hadn’t actually of the books before this trailer, and to be honest I’m not that excited for this movie. Yes, it’s got Tom Cruise in it, but frankly it doesn’t look like fun at all. Release Date: 21 December (US), 28 December (UK)

The Man With The Iron Fists

“They put the F-U in Kung Fu”. This looks over-the-top and ridiculous, but I so want to see it! Release Date: 2012


Wow, this looks awesome. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis playing the young and old versions of Joe, a time-travelling assassin. I love twisty intelligent sci-fi movies and I’m really hoping Looper fits that bill. Judging by the trailer alone, I think this could be great! Release Date: 28 September (UK, US)

Total Recall

I love the look of this! I mean I loved the old version with Arnie, but that one also at times felt quite cheesy (although I should give it a rewatch and see how I find it now). This new version with Colin Farrell looks a little bit more serious, but seems to be following the same plot. My only problem is with this trailer: I suggest don’t watch it. It again is one of those trailers that gives too much away. If you really want to watch it to get a feel for the movie, I’d say stop around the 1:10 mark. Release Date: 3 August (US), 29 August (UK)


This is definitely more of a teaser trailer, I’m still not completely sure what it’s about. Tiny people in a forest. Fern Gully 2.0? It’s from the same creators as Ice Age and Rio, so I’ll keep an eye on it. Release Date: 17 May 2013 (US), 24 May 2012 (UK)
