Mark Wahlberg Returns with Bear in ‘Ted 2′ Trailer
The sequel that had to happen I suppose. Ted 2 follows up on the massive success of Ted from creator Seth MacFarlane, who also voices the raunchy bear. The trailer has a few gross out laughs and hopes to be more in the mold of The Empire Strikes Back than any number of failed sequels. You can’t blame the artists behind the film for using the opportunity to cash in. MacFarlane flopped in his acting debut Once Upon A Time in The West, and Ted was such a massive runaway hit that this was almost a given in todays Hollywood. Lets hope for the best. Have a look at the premiere of the Ted 2 movie trailer below. #LegalizeTed as they say.
New Re-boot of Marvel Comic Book Series ‘Fantastic Four’ Gets First Trailer
The latest in Marvel and comic book redoes is Fantastic Four. Once it was a fairly lame effort about a decade of so ago starring Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Jessica Alba. This time around, Kate Mara, Miles Teller (Whiplash) and Michael B. Jordan get top billing. The look is a bit different but the concept is the same. Expect it to be lame, even if you are hoping for it to be good. You will watch, because that is what you do. That is what Hollywood expects you to do. You will shell out hard earned (theoretically-you worked hard for the money) to sit in a theater with others to watch something that is in all likelihood to be unoriginal. But you will go. That is what your conscious tells you, in spite of yourself likely, at times. Watch the teaser trailer below.
The Avengers worldwide hit machine looks to keep on rolling. More goodies in the new trailer reveal, well, nothing new as far as I can tell. Another battle and the characters essentially remain the same. But, people don’t care. They will show up in record numbers to the theaters to see a slight twist on something they have already seen before, likely countless times in various iterations. No matter. The Avengers Age of Ultron promises to be a box office smash. Marvel made Guardians of the Galaxy the biggest movie of the year. They’ll keep on rocking with the new mega franchise installment. See the trailer here.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Returns to ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Movie Trailer
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to one of the movie franchises he is most famous for. That is about the only potentially interesting thing happening in this trailer and what appears to be a moribund franchise as far as I can tell. This looks so stale and like such a retread of films past (within the franchise) that it just has no appeal to me almost at all. The effects look fine I suppose, but not sufficiently better than what appeared in the transformative and best second film two decades ago. Have a look for yourselves and decide, since admittedly I tapped out on this before the third movie came out (though I eventually saw it at home). Ugh.
Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard Lead ‘Jurassic World’ Movie Trailer
Steven Spielberg is back as an Executive Producer on next years Jurassic World. This would be the 4th film in the Jurassic Park series (not including JP3-D) which began more than a decade ago and was at the time seen as a visual effects marvel. The film first brought Dinosaurs to stunning life on the big screen and its worldwide audience grew from there. Nowadays, the notion of seeing the extinct creatures on the big screen is far less novel, so a concocting a new series of films (potentially) around the same concept seems to be a reach. The first trailer for Jurassic World, seen below, does little to hinder that thought process. What is seen instantly echoes what we saw the first time around, kids being around the dinosaurs, however this time around, foolish scientists have decided to genetically mutate their own dino, which naturally causes havoc. Have a look and judge for yourself.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Movie Trailer Premieres
While the Thanksgiving weekend was taking place, a phenomenon almost as big was unleashed on the public. The brand new Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens movie trailer made its debut. While I was impressed with the visuals which stayed very true to the original look and feel of the original trilogy we all know and love, predictably, the Internet reacted with venom to the opening shot. A black stormtrooper. Imagine the commotion. People get pissed off about silly shit when this should be the height of their day (not really) and not focusing on the cool things in the trailer. Alas, you can never expect people to react reasonably to anything any more it seems. In case you missed the hub bub or want to experience it again, here is the Star Wars 7 trailer debut.
The Debut of Mark Wahlberg in ‘The Gambler’ Movie Trailer
For some reason, Mark Wahlberg always gets the benefit of the doubt in my book. I tend to see most of the films he acts in, despite the fact that he was a reasonably wack rapper and his brother was in NKOTB, which really should be held against him ’til the end of time. Alas, he appears to be a very good dude, and while he does make some stinkers, his success in films like Boogie Nights and The Fighter makes me continue to turn out to see his films. This one, The Gambler, looks to be no different. He stars as a titular gambling addict and shit will hit the fan. The storyline feels predictable and it is a January release, two usual death knells for a film. Still, this looks good enough to me. Agree? See the trailer below to find out.
Adam Sandler in ‘The Cobbler’ Movie Trailer Premiere
In the role he was born to play, comes the latest Adam Sandler magnum opus. In The Cobbler, Sandler plays a shoe cobbler in a long lineage of shoe cobblers in New York. Method Man, Steve Buscemi and Dustin Hoffman lend their star-power to the piece. The comedy has earned early rave reviews with a 4.9/10 thus far on IMdb. It’s wikipedia page lists little about the film. We can only go off of Sandler’s roles in the past to anticipate what to expect. #HilarityEnsues. If the shoe fits… Have a look at the official trailer below. Enjoy.
