30 Minutes or Less
Reuniting Zombieland‘s director and star, 30 Minutes or Less looks like
something you would have seen in the ’80s – the premise, the comedy, the
characters. Considering how much foul language flies in the red-band
trailer, expect it to be a hilarious crude R-rated comedy.
Final Destination 5
A horror movie that features unique awesome deaths is always warranted in my book. FD5 looks exactly like the previous 4 of the franchise, which isn’t a bad thing. If anything, the gigantic bridge disaster sequence will make it worth it.
The Green Lantern
Based on the look and tone of the first Green Lantern trailer, I was a major opponent to this film’s release. It looked like Ryan Reynolds was allowed to run rampant in front of a green screen. But then the 4-minute Wondercon footage popped up online and my opinion started to sway. With this, the second full-length trailer, I am officially on board. Even if you thought the first spots were terrible, watch this. It will change your mind.
I saw Hesher at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and loved it. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the all-time most badass hessian to roam the streets, Hesher offers both strong laughs and a heart of gold. Not to mention is co-stars and was produced by the amazing Natalie Portman.
It is going to be really hard to mess this one up. Starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell in a movie about three disgruntled workers trying to kill each of their horrible bosses, expect lots of laughs.
Because I am highly vocal about how much I hate Pixar’s first Cars movie, many of you will be surprised to find Cars 2 in this listing. This trailer, along with the idea that Pixar made a sequel to make up for how bad Cars 1 was, gives a little hope for Cars 2. If they could make both Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 some of the best sequels ever, it is surely possible that they could do the same with Cars 2. Here’s to hoping.
Let’s be honest. Zoe Saldana is hot and she is great in action movies. Colombiana has both working for it. Since it is summer, we are allowed to excuse bad plot and story for these two things. Welcome back, Summer.
If Steven Spielberg was going to make a movie out of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, it would be Real Steel. Just like The Green Lantern, the first teaser for Real Steal looked awful. This one makes it look fun.
POM Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold is another film I was lucky enough to catch pre-release at Sundance. Easily Morgan Spurlock’s best film yet, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold follows Spurlock as he tries to find product placement advertising for this film, his documentary about product placement. Awesome dichotomy, right? Just wait. It is an absolute crowd-pleaser.
What’s Your Number?
Ok, so maybe I’m a sucker for good chick flicks. Starring both Anna Faris and “Captain America” Chris Evans, I’m in.
Imagine Disturbia where the main kid is believable and the neighbor is a vampire. Sounds good, right?
Banned for violence and rape in the ’70s, this remake of the old Dustin Hoffman film looks just as awesome as the original. With a story somewhat like The Strangers, expect to be creeped out.
