There are a lot of trailers this week, you guys. Which is great news for the trailer heads out there. (Although I suppose if you were a real trailer head, you would have already watched each trailer as it came out, rather than waiting days for an end-of-week trailer round up. But still.) There’s a Wizard of Oz trailer and a Tina Fey/Paul Rudd trailer and that female buddy cop movie trailer and all kinds of stuff. Let’s just get out there and enjoy ourselves.
It’s weird when so many people you enjoy make something you are almost positive you will not enjoy. Or wait, not weird, what’s the word I’m looking for? Common. Surprisingly common.
House Of Cards
This is not actually a movie, it is a series…on Netflix? But it does have movie stars IN it, and it was developed by David Fincher, so it practically counts. Also it looks really good! Keep that in mind too, before you write to your lawyer to sue me for breach of conceit!
21 & Over
Project Y. The Hangover Part 21. Can’t Hardly Chang.
The ABCs Of Death
There is no way in hell I am watching this. You’re welcome to watch it if you want, but man, there is a whole world out there, guys. Let’s make smart choices!
The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones
Sure! This looks fun. I do not know the books or anything, but I love a good secret demon hunter who can see the hidden monsters at the coffee shop. I also love a dramatic cappuccino close up. The cappuccino is haunted!!!!!
Is it just me or do remakes of 1980s Christmas horror movies start earlier and earlier every year? LOLOL GOOOD JOKE WE ARE HAVING FUN TODAY WITH THESE TRAILERS!
The Europa Report
OK. I don’t know? OK.
Oz: The Great And Powerful
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of these hyper-saturated retelling of old stories with bigger guns and more magical castles or whatever, but I understand that they find their audience and make lots of money. It’s just a little funny in this particular instance where you are dealing with a PARTICULARLY iconic movie to imagine how quickly this will get relegated to the dustbin of history in comparison. “Hey, remember that Wizard of Oz movie with James Franco?” “No.”
If for nothing else, this movie is already great for helping us watch Brett Easton Ellis lose his mind on Twitter. And probably for nothing else full stop.
This looks pretty good! I think there are going to be some moments that we, because you know how we can get, will find a bit lazy or disappointing, but the fact of the matter is that Sandra Bullock is pretty charming and Melissa McCarthy is very funny, and also Paul Feig, and police, and jokes. This movie is APPROVED.
