Trailerrific: Into The Woods

November 6th, 2014

I’m not familiar with the musical this movie is based on, but this looks like fun!

Starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine, “Into the Woods” is a humorous and heartfelt musical that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

Can’t. Wait.

Sigh. I’m going to have “I’ve got no strings” stuck in my head for the entire day now, aren’t I?

Trailerrific: E3 2014

June 11th, 2014

It’s always fun seeing what is announced during E3: I can’t wait for some of these games to come out! I’ve haven’t had a proper I’m-so-addicted-to-this-game-I-don’t-want-to-do-anything-else stint for ages, but these trailers make me want to put a weekend aside for purely gaming.

I’ve chosen the trailers that I’m looking forward to the most here. What’s your favourite?

The Division

This looks great:

Assassin’s Creed Unity

I’m still playing Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, and it’s miles better than AC3. This next one is set in Paris and looks great… when was the Eiffel tower built? I’m still hoping they’ll do a London based one (my guess is a Victorian based one eventually).

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

I finally got around to playing Uncharted 1 and 2, but I still haven’t even started Uncharted 3 yet. Even though this is just a teaser, it really makes me want to go back to the series.

Rise of The Tomb Raider

I enjoyed the previous reboot Tomb Raider. It wasn’t a perfect Tomb Raider (not enough smart puzzles I found), but it’s interesting to see what they do next.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection

So awesome. The Master Chief collection will be on an all-in-one disc for Xbox One and contains the full campaigns and multiplayer for Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4. I’ve only ever played Halo: Combat Evolved, and have been waiting for a remastered version of Halo 2 ever since. Finally!

Trailerrific: Gotham

May 13th, 2014

Okay, this looks great:

When I first heard about Gotham, I was expecting something more cheesy like Smallville, but this? This looks watchable. Fingers crossed that it’s not just good editing.

This looks awesome! I can’t wait to see how they end this all.

I still haven’t finished the inbetweeny not-that-original Batman: Origins, but hey, you get to be Batman again and who doesn’t like that?

I can’t quite believe it’s halfway December already! The past few weeks have been so busy with various exciting things happening (which I should hare with you all soon!). Because of that I’ve missed a ton of cool trailers that got released; so many epic looking movies are coming next year. Here’s a roundup of all the awesomeness heading our way:

Jupiter Ascending

Woah. I’m not completely sure what’s going on in this trailer, but I so want to see this. Knowing the Wachowski’s it’s going to be unique in some way.

Release Date: 18, July 2014 (US), 25 July 2014 (UK)

Edge of Tomorrow

This looks awesome! Based on Oblivion, I’m wary of how original this will be, but it does look like a lot of fun. Emily Blunt looks badass and the whole sci-fi Groundhog Day feel to it could make it quite epic. Sidenote: hi Greenwhich, nice to see you again!

Release Date: 30 May 2014 (UK), 6 June 2014 (US)



Release Date: 16 May 2014 (UK, US)

300: Rise of an Empire

Yay for more kickass female characters! Eva Green looks amazing as Artemisia as does Lena Headey reprising her role as Queen Gorgo.

Release Date: 7 March 2014 (UK, US)


Darren Aronofsky is one of my favourite directors, so I’m curious to see his take on the Noah story.

Release Date: 28 March 2014 (UK, US)

Muppets Most Wanted

I liked the last Muppet movie. It wasn’t the best Muppet movie ever, but it had some great moments in it and it was fun to see the Muppets back on our screens. This latest movie seems to be the same; fun, but not the best movie ever.

Release Date: 28 March 2014 (UK)

Winter’s Tale

Watch this trailer till at least the 1:20 mark… Not what you were expecting, right?

Release Date: 21 February 2014 (UK)

Can’t. Wait.

It’s time for another Trailerrific Thursday post! So many good trailers have come out the past week, it looks like we’ve got an awesome summer of movies ahead of us. Which movie are you the most excited about? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter.


We’ve had to wait 7 years since Alfonso Cuarón brought us Children of Men, but his latest movie looks fantastic. Gravity is about two astronauts (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) who get stranded in space after an accident during a space walk mission. I’ve heard the movie opens with a single 17 minute long take… I think this could be epic.

Release Date: 4 October 2013 (US), 18 October 2013 (UK)

About Time

Ooh, a romantic comedy with time travel! About Time is written and directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Four Weddings and A Funeral) and stars Domhnall Gleeson as a young man who discovers he can travel back into time and redo parts of his own life. I love how quirky, funny and sweet the trailer looks; I can’t wait to see this!

Release Date: 6 September 2013 (UK), 8 November 2013 (US)


This looks like fun. I loved Pitch Black, the first movie in the Riddick series, and this 3rd movie looks like it will be in the same vein. The effects and production quality don’t look brilliant, but I think the story and action sequences will more than make up for it. Also: Katee Sackhoff! I don’t think she’ll ever get rid of her Starbuck image; we don’t see much of her character, but it looks like she’ll again be an awesome ass-kicking heroine.

Release Date: 6 September 2013 (UK, US)

The World’s End

It’s the final chapter of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy! Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were hilarious, so I’m sure this final movie will be just as awesome. Five friends attempt to redo an epic pub crawl in their old home town, only to discover an alien invasion.

Release Date: 19 July 2013 (UK), 23 August 2013 (US)

Ender’s Game

I again have to make a difficult decision: read the book first or watch the movie first? This time around I’m tempted to read the book first: what would you do? I do like the look of this though; I’m not exactly sure what is going on, but it looks like it could be a fun and action filled scifi.

Release Date: 25 October 2013 (UK), 1 November 2013 (US)

White House Down

The theme of 2013? White House Under Attack movies. We’ve already had Olympus Has Fallen and now White House Down (and I think there are two others as well). I enjoyed Olympus Has Fallen; it was a lots-of-explosions-and-fights action movie, but still quite fun. The trailer for White House Down makes it look even cheesier, which I should have expected seeing as Roland Emmerich is involved (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012).

Release Date: 28 June 2013 (US), 6 September 2013 (UK)

Captain Phillips

This doesn’t really look like my type of movie, but it does look interesting. Captain Phillips is directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum) and stars Tom Hanks as Captain Richard Phillips who was taken hostage by Somali Pirates during the Maersk Alabama hijacking in 2009.

Release Date: 11 October 2013 (UK, US)

Thor: The Dark World

I know this came out like 3 weeks, but somehow I only got around to watching it now. I’m not exactly sure why, but I’m not really feeling excited for this movie at all. I liked the first one, and I really like Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, but I have the feeling something is missing…

Release Date: 1 November 2013 (UK), 8 November 2013 (US)

Trailerrific: Rush

April 8th, 2013

Ooh, I had heard about Rush a while ago, but this is the first footage I’ve seen from it. It’s directed by Ron Howard and it’s about the rivalry between Formula One drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt.

This looks great:

I always thought I had played DuckTales as a kid on the NES, but turns out that was DuckTales 2. Which had pretty much the same gameplay as far as I can tell. I can’t wait to get my hands on this remastered version!
