…not to mention 5 rather iffy prospects
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
It’s On Again – Alicia Keys f. Kendrick Lamar (prod. by Pharrell)
Andrew Garfield perfectly captures the wisecracking nature of Peter Parker perfectly, and if the first movie is any indicator, the next one is definitely going to be a step up. The fact that Pharrell is actively involved with the film’s soundtrack should be yet another feather in his Vivienne Westwood ranger’s hat…
Official extended trailer
One can say it’s about time a Hollywood studio give the Big G his respect due – his distinctive silhouette and roar all there and accounted for!!!
Guardians Of The Galaxy
ScreenJunkies’ WTF is Guardians Of The Galaxy
Mr. Sunday To Sunday’s All About the Guardians Of The Galaxy
A welcome gamble for Marvel Studios – they’re spending that much just to reacquaint casual fans with the space opera comic from which it was based on. If the trailer is a yardstick, get set for a bawdy joyride….
A Million Ways To Die In The West
Red Band Trailer
Speaking of bawdy (not to mention bloody) joyrides…
X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Trailer #3 (now with wings!!!)
Can’t wait for Angelina Jolie to deliver all these campy-good lines as she can only do so – and Lana Del Rey’s rendition of the Sleeping Beauty theme song
Transformers: Age Of Extinction
You sold me on Optimus Prime riding that Dinobot like a bronco here…
Now, for the five “iffy” ones:
Fast & Furious 7
First look trailer
Dunno how the franchise shall carry on with its momentum now that Paul Walker’s out of the picture
Hercules: The Thracian Wars
Planes: Fire & Rescue
Trailer 1: Courage
Trailer 2: Thunder
The first Planes nearly bored me to death – looks like the sequel’s gonna set aside El Chupacabra and Ishani, the two characters that were the standouts in that two-hour aerial stretch o’ ho-hum.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Nickelodeon CGI cartoons are already good, so why another live-action turn for the “Heroes In A Half-Shell”, then. On the other hand, Megan Fox is once again looking good – at least, we’d be spared Vanilla Ice and his “Ninja Rap”
No ninja no ninja no ninja NOOOO!!!
The Expendables 3
Teaser trailer #2 – roll call
Bigger, yeah, but badder? This time, the (expanded) Expendables face a renegade co-founder played by Mel Gibson. Bruce Willis‘ presence seems much missed here though (even when his excessive $ demands got his butt kicked from this gaggle) but seriously…srsly…SERIOUSLY…Kellan frickin’ Lutz?
