Winter releases also bring a slew of trailers for spring/summer releases, so I thought I would sum up some of the biggest ones and put them all in a convenient single place for everyone! The one thing missing here is the new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, attached to Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. It’s yet to be released online, which is understandable, so you’ll just have to watch Holmes to catch it. Or, if you’re lucky enough, watch the six-minute prologue attached to Mission Impossible IV.
Wrath of the Titans – Clash of the Titans wasn’t the best movie but it was sort of entertaining and successful enough to deserve a sequel. Hopefully we’ll get more action this time around, particularly on the godly side of things. At the least, it looks like we’ll get actual titans. It might be a fun film to watch in March and get away from…whatever you have going on in March.
The Three Stooges – Yeah, I’m not going to say much here. If you’re a fan you might enjoy it. Otherwise…yeah.
Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – I talked a little about this in my Dreamsworks Dynasty post. Not we have our first trailer, mostly a teaser, but still good. I’d like to see it, at least.
John Carter – I understand this film as Disney’s attempt to kickstart a new sci-fi/fantasty series now that Harry Potter has ended (similar to The Hunger Games). It fits pretty much all the qualities of an epic film – set in a huge landscape like Mars, crap tons of CGI species and monsters and battle scenes, so on so forth. It has Mark Strong, which is a plus. At the very least, we know this movie is costing Disney a lot, so we’ll see if it can make up that budget.
Battleship – Ugh.
Men in Black 3 – Also a teaser trailer, but it gives us some pretty impressive peaks. For one, it looks like the CGI aliens might actually look plausible now. Beyond that, the usual antics of the series with the added bonus of having Josh Brolin portray what looks to be an awesome impression of Tommy Lee Jones. I’m a fan of the series, so I look forward to it.
Jack the Giant Killer – Yeah, I know, what’s up with all of these fairy tale movies lately? Unlike Snow White, there’s only one Jack & the Giant Beanstalk movie coming out, but it’s still an interesting choice. As can be expected from Bryan Singer (X-Men), the story is revamped with plenty of action, romance, and visual effects. The trailer looks good…but they’re cut to look good. I’ll have to hold judgement on this one for the time being.
That about sums things up for now. Look for reviews for all the winter blockbusters over the coming weeks (usually posted Sunday of opening weekend), and let us know what movies/trailers you see, good or bad!
