Here’s the Godzilla 2014 trailer featuring Godzilla and a bunch of actors who play second fiddle to Godzilla. The trailer doesn’t show much Godzilla, but it does set the mood pretty well. So click the link for Godzilla.

Sony have been hyping up this trailer all week like it was the biggest event of the year. Good for them. I suppose they need to make sure people are hyped for the second Totes Amaze-balls Spider-Dude film after the first one disappointed many. I enjoyed the first film, although pointed out just how much of it was pointless and merely repeating stories we’ve seen already. Where the film really got into its swing (badum-tish) was when it was focused on Spider-Man himself, something Andrew Garfield pulled off well. So, after the jump is the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Tell me what you think in the comments, or something.
Don’t do many trailer posts these days but I’m a comic book geek and so I feel compelled to post this one. The Thor 2 trailer hasn’t done a massive amount for me, although I will see it next week, but this trailer is awesome. They clearly understand that Captain America isn’t about supporting the interests of the American Government, regardless of what they are, but more about upholding the core tenants the U.S. was founded on. Some of the best storylines in the comics is when he’s going against his own employers to show what he believes is the true American way of life. This sequel seems to be tapping right into that and it looks like it’ll be doing a better job at showing the conflict between what SHIELD stand for and what they actually do better than the Agents of Shield series is. Anyway, click the link for the trailer and chuck some words in the comments below!
A little while ago I reviewed the Total Recall remake. It was terrible. This has been a habit of quite a number of remakes where, at best, they can be described as decent, and most often, an offence to the original work. A lot of the time this is because a remake has been made of a great work that not only didn’t need remaking but also the end product would often miss the point. See Total Recall. And from one Verhoeven classic to another comes the remake of RoboCop. I’ve watched this trailer a couple of times and I’m not sure what top make of it. Clearly it’s toned down. Violence at the level of the original just isn’t a thing these days. But this trailer also appears to show signs that the director might just have an angle to play this film from. It appears RoboCop is aware that he is Murphy right from the start. What difference does that make tot he character’s journey? Is his story going to be about him accepting the change? Will he reject it and fight back against the people that made him? What will others think? Does he view himself as a monster? Is this actually Robo-Frankenstein’s Monster? Lots of questions that you can ask yourself by watching the trailer after the jump.
I like Ashens. He does funny little reviews of some of the greatest pieces of tat the world has to offer from the comfort of his sofa. Or, more precisely, the comfort of the floor he’s kneeling on whilst hunched over a camera pointed at his sofa. Actually, that doesn’t sound too comfortable. Anyway, he made a Indigogo thing a while ago to fund the production of an Ashens film. Now usually I’m in the camp of many people who are dead set against anyone making a film based on their Youtube channel. But these things happen and I’d rather see an Ashens film than Fred: the Movie. The trailer for the Ashens film (subtitled Quest for the Game Child) was released today and honestly, it looks really, really good. Has an actual professional tone to it. I figured it was going to look halfway well made but wasn’t expecting it to look this well made. Certainly looks better than that Angry Videogame Nerd film. What happened to that anyway? I remember seeing the trailer about a year ago, posted it on here even, and now it’s vanished. Well, no point stalling any longer. Click the link below to see the trailer itself.
Yeah, I made that title more awkward than was needed. Anyway, here’s the trailer for The Wolverine. A sequel to a film that probably shouldn’t have been made. My views on X-Men Origins: Wolverine are pretty much that I can watch it but it’s really weak and messy. It’s not X-Men 3 bad, it’s just normal bad. But hey, at least Ryan Reynolds was cool for the 30 seconds he was in it, right? Anyway, click the link for the trailer for a film that is already looking like an improvement.
Well, I’m liking what I see. No knee-jerking anti remake hate from me here. This looks legit. Would be cool if after Cabin In The Woods took apart horror last year and exposed how easy it can be that we get one of the original “cabin in the woods” horror films coming back to rebuild the genre. Personally, I think the horror genre is broken to an incredible degree now. Maybe I’ll write an piece one day about why I feel that. Anyway, click the link for the red band trailer of Evil Dead.
Well That Sure Is The Giant Robots Vs Giant Monsters Action I Was Promised. Pacific Rim Trailer In Here!!!
So for some time Guillermo Del Toro has been promising the world some giant fecking robot action. After At The Mountains Of Madness was cancelled he set about making this giant robot movie and he’s only gone and done it. Pacific Rim looks like the movie I’ve been wanting to see produced with Hollywood sized budgets ever since I watched Godzilla and Robot Jox style films as a kid. I’d imagine people a little younger than me would likely parallel the feeling they get from this to Power Rangers. Pacific Rim is about giant robots fighting monsters from beneath the sea and it looks pretty damn spectacular. It does make me ask one question though. Isn’t it time that our films started to scale down somewhat? We are really losing character and story behind huge effects and high concept scenarios. That said, giant robots kick all kinds of arse. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Well as Winter approaches we start heading into that time of year we all can’t wait to experience. It’s the summer movie trailers preview season!!!! Yes, every year at this time the studios start to remember that they have another season of summer blockbusters to force into our collective eye holes next year and so they start pumping out the film trailers like nobodies business. Today we have a trailer for the Zach Snyder directed and, more importantly for the marketing department, Christopher Nolan produced Man Of Steel. Because not having the word “Batman” in the title of the last two films worked out so well some clever sod in marketing decided that Superman can’t have his name on the title of his new film either. So, click the link for the trailer. It looks quite good.
