X-Men: Days of Future Past - Trailer 3

Bryan Singer just tweeted a link to the final trailer for X-men Days of Future Past. Honestly, I’m not watching this trailer because I have a rule about watching new trailers for movies I already know I want to see. If we’re six weeks away and there’s a new trailer, I don’t watch it. It almost always gives away too much story.

But I thought you all might be interested. So… here you go.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Trailer

Surprisingly, this looks… not bad. The chances of me seeing this in theaters are greater than me seeing Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Guardians Of The Galaxy - Trailer

Vin Diesel plays a tree and Bradley Cooper plays a raccoon named Rocket. That was all I knew about Guardians of The galaxy until I saw this trailer. I still only know slightly more than that.

I will say this, based on this trailer I’m a little worried that the comedy is too slow. However, this is quite the departure from Iron Man and Thor for Marvel. I read Marvel for 15 years and I didn’t know this book. So maybe this was just to serve as an introduction.

But honestly, Vin Diesel plays a tree and Bradley Cooper plays a raccoon named Rocket so I’m going to see this movie.

Superhero Movies Are Getting Too Greedy -- Vulture 

Great read by Kyle Buchanan. Definitely echos my fears about Amazing Spider-Man and Batman / Superman.

That’s what worries me about the Spider-Man news. Already, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is so perilously overcrowded with new characters — including three villains in Electro, Rhino, and the Green Goblin — that another important Spider-Man figure, Mary Jane Watson, was completely excised from the final cut after Shailene Woodley had already shot her scenes. Sony seems determined to churn through villains and story lines as fast as possible to get to the good stuff, but doesn’t that handicap the solo Spider-Man movies from the get-go? It’s going to be awfully hard to invest in Spider-Man’s upcoming battle with Electro (not to mention the additional villains he’ll tussle with in The Amazing Spider-Man 3) when we know that the bad guy can’t possibly be killed off, that in fact he’ll be alive and thriving two movies down the line just so he can join a Sinister Six team-up.

Interstellar - Trailer

The first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s next movie, Interstellar. Yes, please.

Posters for the movies from Seinfeld.

I love these so much more than I should. I can’t believe it took until August of 2013 to make this happen. Based on posters alone I would see Check Mate, Prognosis Negative, Death Blow, and Rochelle Rochelle (obviously).

Cry, Cry Again is obviously Oscar bait, and Chunnel looks like garbage. I bet they converted it to 3D in post.

The Best Way to Combat Piracy Is to Make Movies Easier to Watch 

I believe this 100%. I’ve been saying it for a long time, even if it’s never been committed to this blog.

It was a conversation that was ongoing about music until the iTunes Store made music easier to buy than to pirate. 

Jupiter Ascending - Trailer

I’ll just… let me just… I’m going to put this here. It’s the trailer for Jupiter Ascending, a new movie from the Wachowskis. You have my attention.

I think Bryan Singer just announced another X-Men movie on twitter.

I’m already excited for Days of Future Past. I have every confidence in whatever he does with Apocalypse, be it Age of Apocalypse or just featuring Apocalypse.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Trailer

After two days of me ranting about Spider-Man, I thought I’d be done. But today Sony released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. *sigh*

Well, I’ve watched it twice. I like the stuff about Peters parents, but I liked it when it was promised in the first film too. It does look like it’ll be more prevalent in this film which is great. The story of Peter’s parents is the best thing this franchise has going for it.

I’m not into what they’ve done to Electro. Electro is my favorite Spider-Man villain. I liked that Spider-Man had to solve how to beat him, because webs wouldn’t stick, and punching him would cause electrocution. Spidey figured out that if he wore rubber booties and gloves he would be fine. It was the perfect combo of the brains of Peter Parker and the fighting style of Spider-Man.

And Electro wasn’t just muscle for Oscorp. He was his own person with his own reasons for hating Spider-Man. The opening VO says “Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make” … but it’s not more enemies, it’s one enemy. One your father made. Rhino, Electro, Goblin… they’re all having their strings pulled by Oscorp / Norman Osborn.

Oh, and at 1:15 in, you can see Vulture’s wings and Dr Octopus arms. I can bet we’ll see those in 3. 

Would love to know what you guys think.
