Trailer Dump

A ton of movie trailers have been dropped in the past few weeks, including the first official looks at Django Unchained and a better look at Jeremy Renner stepping in to fill a Damon-sized void in The Bourne Legacy. Here I'm gonna run through a few of the most recent trailer that show some promise.

Looper 

I'm definitely excited to see this. It's next movie from the creator of both Brick and The Brother's Bloom. I'm interested in seeing Joseph Gordon Levitt playing a young version of Bruce Willis.

The Man With the Iron Fists

This is the directorial debut of Wu Tang clan founder RZA. This send-up to the kung fu days of old comes from the man who provided the score to Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill. Tarantino is releasing it and collaborator Eli Roth helped the RZA with his script. What really gets me pumped for this is Russell flippin Crowe is the villain.

Alex Cross

I'm glad to see Tyler Perry drop the padded drag Madea costume and step into the shoes of another character. He is filling some pretty big shoes as Alex Cross, a role that was played in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider by Morgan Freeman.

Total Recall



I never know what to expect with a remake/sequel/prequel but I'm fine with an Arnie movie getting redone with a new face. Total Recall looks amazing and I like the idea of Colin Farrell as an action star. He was great in Fright Night and In Bruges, but he looks to make his Quaid different than the former Governator. I'm sold by Bryan Cranston and Bill Nighy being involved as well.

Shut Up and Play the Hits


I never listened to LCD Soundsystem while they're together. But now that the band has broken up I found myself interested based purely on the strength of the trailer alone. Plus the quick appearance of Reggie Watts having one hell of a time had me sold too.

There are a lot of good movies coming soon especially this summer and fall. And I didn't even mention The Dark Knight Rises, Savages, or The Neighborhood Watch.
