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?

It’s been a week full of interesting trailers! I somehow missed blogging about these two, so I thought I’d catch up with that tonight.

The first is Pacific Rim, directed by Guillermo del Toro. Giant Robots versus Giant Monsters!

The second is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and stars Will and Jaden Smith as a father and son who crash-land on an abandoned Earth.

Trailerrific: Oblivion

December 8th, 2012

Okay, this looks awesome! I’m not exactly sure what is going on in the trailer, but it looks like Oblivion could be a fun sci-fi ride. It’s written and directed by Joseph Kosinski and is based on Kosinski’s graphic novel of the same name. He previously did Tron Legacy, which I enjoyed even if the story was a bit sucky, so I’m curious to see how Oblivion turns out.

What the hell is exactly going on there? I love the look of the movie and I’m hoping the story is smart and twisty. It looks like there’s going to be some twist with Jack and the mysterious girl… I think this might go on my Avoid-All-Trailers list, I think this could be a movie I could be pleasantly surprised by!

Trailerrific: Dead Island

February 17th, 2011

This is just… hmm, “beautiful” somehow seems the wrong word, but I’m not really sure how else to describe it. It’s a trailer for the zombie game Dead Island, and while it’s got the creepy and gruesome zombie vibe going on, there’s also this visceral aspect to it that makes it all rather emotional and stunning:

See what I mean?

It’s 1am and I’m supposed to get up early to see a screening of Paul tomorrow morning, but I couldn’t resist watching the Superbowl this year. This is the first time I’m watching with friends (and actually have a clue what is happening). Being in the UK though, I can’t actually see all the ads and trailers live, but nowadays they’re pretty quickly available online. So here’s my roundup of the must-watch trailers of the Superbowl:

Super 8

Still very mysterious, but I love the vibe of this trailer (mainly cause of the music, I think). Kyle Chandler will always be Gary Hobson for me though (any other old Early Edition fans here?)

Captain America

I was a little underwhelmed when I saw this the first time. Re-watching it though makes me like it a bit more. Is it weird that I was expecting more action shots? I like the before and after shots of Chris Evens though.


As much as I hate the plot of the Transformers movies, I do love the action. Giant robots fighting! What’s not to love? And installment #3 seems to have more action, more robots and more explosions. Fire bad, robot pretty.


Not much we hadn’t seen before. I still think it looks a little bit cheesy. But you know I love mythology and superheros, so whatever happens I’m going to see this.

Cowboys & Aliens

Ooh! We already had seen a trailer, but this spot shows a little bit more. Did you see that alien ship “unfold”?!

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

I still like the idea of this movie. My main problem with 2 and 3 were Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, and they’ been finally cut out of this movie. Instead we get Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane as Blackbeard (AWESOME).

February 4th, 2011

Okay, this just looks awesome:

I love how this doesn’t look like your typical action movie. And we need more kick ass heroines in movies!

Trailerrific: Source Code

November 22nd, 2010

You all should know by now how much I loved Duncan Jones’ Moon (if you still haven’t seen it, why the hell not?), so it should come as no surprise that I’d be interested in his next movie. Well, we now finally get a trailer:

Right. So army guy wakes up in a secret base and is forced to relive the same event over again to try and stop a future terrorist attack. Any theories so far?

I’ve already posted a couple of trailers for this movie, but I can’t wait to see it! It’s already out in the US, but we’ll have to wait one more week for it. The trailer does show a lot, so if you’ve already decided to see this movie, I’d avoid watching it.

The first full length trailer of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has been revealed! It looks pretty awesome! I’m struggling to remember what exactly happened in the final book; somehow nothing in the trailer seems familiar, but it seems epic. I think the two movies will give this entire series a worthy ending.

It’s actually only a teaser trailer, but I know plenty of you who’d be interested in seeing the first glimpse of ‘that Facebook movie’. We don’t actually get to see anything yet, it’s only audio, but it does sound pretty intense:

The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker, and Andrew Garfield as Eduardo Saverin.
