This Week In Movie Trailers, You Guys

Are you ready for your weekly dose of movie trailers? I hope so, because you’re going to get them even if you aren’t ready. I’m sorry! But we do this every Friday. You should have known to prepare yourself. This is not our fault. So, we have a few new ones for you today. A few of them are good, a few of them are bad, and one of them is terrible. Very exciting! Click through to decide for yourselves which is which, because you can make your own decisions and no one is forcing your hand here:

The Killer Elite

WHAT IS THIS MOVIE ABOUT? I watched the trailer twice and I still have no idea what the plot is. Jason Statham kicking things? Robert De Niro being old and confused? Clive Owen trying very hard to be not as appealing as he is normally? Guns? Something with guns? I don’t know. I wish I could be here for you guys to explain this movie trailer to you, but my brain has broken and now I am dead.

A Dangerous Method

Yes! This one I like AND understand. Gabe chose this movie as one of his most anticipated for the remainder of 2011, and I was going to choose it if he hadn’t already. David Cronenberg! Michael Fassbender! Drama! Somewhat blurred lines between what is right and what is wrong! Loosely adapted history! I don’t like Viggo Mortensen, though, unfortunately. But I only don’t like him because I REALLY don’t like Guy Pearce, and he reminds me too much of Guy Pearce. Ugh, Guy Pearce.

Puss in Boots

I didn’t know this was happening. Did you know this was happening? Well, now we ALL know this is happening, and we can ALL be a little upset about before we eventually forget and move on to something else.


This bank heist movie, starring SO MANY PEOPLE (Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd, Rob Huebel, Tim Blake Nelson, Mekhi Phifer, Jeffrey Tambor), unfortunately does not look very good to me. Boring “wacky hijinks” + underlying element of non-fear + Ashley Judd and Patrick Dempsey falling in love + written by the guys who wrote The Hangover = ZzZZzzzzzZzzz. Not for me. I don’t know who it would be for, I can’t think of anyone, but also it is certainly not for me. It seems like a movie that’s trying to be like, “men and women can see this together on dates, something for everyone.” But really it is “let’s never see this, something for no one.”

Captain America:The First Avenger

This is the second trailer released for Captain America, but I figured I would include it anyway because of how I wanted to include it. Ok? This is another one that Gabe chose as one of his most anticipated, and it is another one that I agree about. Not that I would say I’m anticipating it THE MOST, because that would totally be a lie, but I am anticipating it slightly. Certainly more than most comic book movies that have ever come out. Is it because of how it’s set during World War II? Is it because of how cute/weird Chris Evans looks when he’s CG skinny? Is it kind of just a mystery to me and I’m not sure why? Yes, all of those.

And also the Muppets trailer came out, which Gabe has already talked about extensively.
