Trailerrific Thursday: Now You See Me, Beautiful Creatures and More
It’s been more than a month since I’ve done a trailer roundup! With the final Twilight movie finally being released, most of those trailers seem to be aimed at the Twilight crowd; which movie will be the next angsty teen paranormal box-office hit?
Now You See Me
A magician heist movie? Count me in. This looks like it could be a lot of fun, and it’s got an awesome cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. This could be a lot of fun indeed.
Release Date: 7 June 2013 (US), 21 June 2013 (UK)
One for the Twihards. This paranormal teen romance is about Lean, a 15 year old witch who will need to choose between Light and Dark on her sixteenth birthday. It looks like a weird and gorgeous world, albeit a bit goofy.
Release Date: 13 February 2013 (US, UK)
This looks good! I know it’s written by Twilight’s Stephanie Meyer, but it’s directed by Andrew Niccol and I’ve always enjoyed his movies.
Release Date: 29 March 2013 (US, UK)
As the Barret family’s peaceful suburban life is rocked by an escalating series of disturbing events, they come to learn that a terrifying and deadly force is after them. Ooh, aliens! I used to watch a ton of alien abduction TV movies, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen one.
Release Date: 22 February 2013 (US)
Jack The Giant Slayer
This looks cheesy as hell, but I kind of want to see it. Ewan McGregor’s hair! Those giants! It looks ridiculous and so-shiny-it-can’t-be-real fake, but part of me doesn’t care.
Release Date: 1 March 2013 (US), 22 March 2013 (UK)
I like the look of this movie, even though it does seem a bit like an updated version of Fern Gully. I’m not sure about the title though; it doesn’t seem that “Epic”.
Release Date: 24 May 2013 (US, UK)
I didn’t like Bridesmaids at all, so it doesn’t surprise me that I’m not liking this new movie from the same director. If you liked Bridesmaids, chance are you’ll like this.
Release Date: 5 April 2013 (US, UK)
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
I’ve got the books lying around, but I still haven’t gotten around to reading them. It looks like it could be fun, but the acting and effect don’t look that promising. Still it can’t be as bad as Twilight.
Release Date: 23 August 2013 (US, UK)
