It’s been two weeks since my last Trailerrific post, so high time for a new one with all the latest trailers! Which trailers have you seen recently that you liked?

Cloud Atlas

Wow. This. Looks. Awesome. And weird. And very confusing. My type of movie from the sounds of that. I still haven’t read the book, but I’ve heard how good it is. I really should read it before the movie comes out. Release Date: October 2012 (UK, US)

Life of Pi

Based on the book of the same name, Life of Pi is about a young man who gets shipwrecked together with a Bengal tiger. I again haven’t read the book, but this trailer makes me want to read it! It looks like it could be an awesome story, but I’m not sure it will translate well to the big screen. Release Date: 21 November 2012 (US), 21 December 2012 (UK)

Man of Steel

This looks like it could be good! It feels a lot like Nolan’s take on Batman but then for Superman… very curious to see how this turns out. I’m still not sure about Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent or Amy Adams as Lois Lane (as much as I love her, she’s not who I’d imagine for that role), but I love the rest of the casting (Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diana Lane as Martha Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Laurence Fishburn as Perry White). Release Date: 14 June 2013 (UK, US)

Oz: The Great and Powerful

It’s again a “from the producer of Alice In Wonderland” production, so that’s not filling me with much hope. However, that’s semi-counteracted by the fact that Sam Raimi is directing; I most of the time love what he does (although I have to admit there have been some misses too). I’m not the hugest fan of James Franco; he always seems to play the same character and somehow just gets on my nerves. Still, the rest of this movie looks beautiful and Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis as the three witches look great. I also love though how the trailer starts off in black-and-white! Release Date: 8 March 2013 (UK, US)


This trailer for the Russian sci-fi movie Branded came out last month, but I somehow missed it. It looks super weird though and I think it could be quite interesting. If I understand the trailer correctly, the idea behind it is that the world is full of invisible aliens or monsters that feed off someones brand devotion. Interesting concept and very curious to see how far they take it. Release Date: 7 September 2012 (US)

The Master

The idea behind this movie sounds interesting: following World War II a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a religious organization (described as being similar to Scientology). The trailer though just doesn’t do anything for me; it looks like it could be an amazing story, but it also feels like it could be quite tiring and slow. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman both look great and I’m predicting at least one of them will get nominated for an Oscar. Release Date: 9 November 2012 (UK)

About Cherry

A drama about a troubled high school girl who moves to San Francisco, where she gets involved in pornography and aligns herself with a cocaine-addicted lawyer. Release Date: September 2012 (US)


Yet another “The Hangover but with woman” movie. It also doesn’t look that funny at all. Release Date: September 2012 (US)

The Oranges

The Walling’s and the Ostroff’s have been friends forever. This all changes though when David Walling (Hugh Laurie) starts an affair with his friend’s daughter Nina (Leighton Meester), much to the dismay of his wife (Catherine Keener), daughter (Alia Shawkat), son (Adam Brody) and best friends (Oliver Plat and Allison Janney). Release Date: October 2012 (US)
