Arnold Schwarzenegger Returns to ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Movie Trailer

Arnold Schwarzenegger Returns to ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Movie Trailer

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

Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard Lead ‘Jurassic World’ Movie Trailer

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

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Movie Trailer Premieres

‘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

The Debut of Mark Wahlberg in ‘The Gambler’ Movie Trailer

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

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.

Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s Final ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Movie Trailer

Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s Final ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Movie Trailer

The final trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings is here. I, admittedly, still remain unconvinced about seeing this one. Christian Bale stars in the Ridley Scott swords and sandals epic. The visuals looks stunning, but the film appears a bit of a retread to my eyes. Time will tell. From wikipedia:

…the story of the defiant leader Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Scott has lost his player card with me over the years. He was once an anticipated, revered director, who now will only helm large scale blockbusters that have failed to overwhelm (See: Prometheus). His films are ones you want to like but can’t get entirely on board with. Bale is the draw here, as one of the top actors going. He will be the guy to either pull me into the theater or not. We’ll see.

Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain Lead ‘A Most Violent Year’ Movie Trailer

Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain Lead ‘A Most Violent Year’ Movie Trailer

¬†Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain Lead ‘A Most Violent Year’ Movie Trailer

A Most Violent Year is set in the early 80’s, about a man (Isaac) being investigated on all sides amid violence and corruption. His wife is played by Chastain. The film was written and directed by JC Chandor (All is Lost and Margin Call) and promises to be a very different film than his last outing, set in the sea, starring an acting icon (Redford). He puts two Oscar nominated actors in the lead roles and turns back the clock three decades this time around. Here is a look at the first trailer for the film. The movie opens the AFI Film Festival here in Los Angeles. Enjoy.

Channing Tatum in Full Length ‘Foxcatcher’ Movie Trailer

Channing Tatum in Full Length ‘Foxcatcher’ Movie Trailer

This new Foxcatcher trailer, I must admit, intrigues me. The Bennett Miller directed piece has a dark feel to it, something that lurks underneath the situations as presented. Here, Channing Tatum is a wrestler who seeks to be the best and comes under the tutelage of a heavily made up Steve Carell. This could be reminiscent of Jim Carrey’s attempt to go serious and dark, which ultimately failed in his case. Carell is reserved and menacing, and if the early reviews are any indication, this wrestling film will be one to look out for. Throw Mark Ruffalo into the mix and you have a potentially very solid film. We’ll see, come November 14th.
