In case this is your first visit to “Triple-T,”here’s what it’s all about:

Seeing as how everyone loves movie previews, “Trailer Time Thursday!” was created to bring all of the trending trailers that you may have missed in theaters, or just need to see, all in one convenient place! It makes Thursdays so great! Get ready! Your Preview Pandemonium awaits!

ENJOY!!! :)

ParaNorman (new trailer). With a smorgasboard of actors involved, this stop-motion animated feature tells the tale of a peculiar boy with an even more peculiar set of eyes…eyes that can see dead people. No, it’s not “animated Sixth Sense” but it does have a similar feel to it. Look for this one to startle and scare on this wild adventure with those in the afterlife on August 17, 2012.

People Like Us. Chris Pine stars with Elizabeth Banks and Olivia Wilde in this interesting story of a man down on his luck who receives an inheritance…only to find that he must give that to a sister he never knew existed. Will he do the right thing and give her the money? Or will he help himself? Take a look at the trailer and get ready to see the film on June 29, 2012. I just can’t decide if it’s supposed to be a rom-com, a drama, a comedy, or a mixture of them all.

Ted. A comedy for sure, Seth MacFarlane (of Family Guy, and more, fame) directs and stars with Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, and others in this story of a grown man who is still attached to his stuffed animal bear from his childhood that…has been alive since a magical wish saw its way to reality 27 years ago. Check out the trailer, you’ll see how the story goes. There is a red-band (rated R) trailer if you are interested on YouTube. Ted releases on July 13.

The Giant Mechanical Man. Genna Fischer and Chris Messina star in this romantic comedy in which a woman, recently fired from her job, unexpectedly falls in love with a silent street performer. With additional performance by Topher Grace, I expect this one to be full of laughs, but also full of drama. The mechanical man will arrive in theaters on April 27, 2012.

To Rome With Love. After winning an Oscar for Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen brings another foreign city, star-studded, comedic film to audiences. Look at the cast: Woody Allen, Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Alison Pill, Alec Baldwin, Greta Gerwig, even director Roberto Benigni! The only person missing is his usual staple…Scarlett Johansson! Check out the trailer as the story follows several groups of people in Italy and the situations they come upon. Be sure to get your passports ready to visit Rome on April 20, 2012.

Rock of Ages (trailer #2). Tom Cruise rocks it out in this tribute to the 80’s. This musical highlights Cruise as the rock star Stacee Jaxx who everybody is in love with. It’s fun to revisit all of the wild hair styles, music, legwarmers, and more. Get ready to rock and roll all night and party everyday on June 15, 2012.

This Week’s “Special Trailer Spotlight”:

How It Should Have Ended- Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

This very fun video is from the guys over at HISHE.Com. Their hilarious videos and takes of how popular films should have ended never cease to entertain. Here’s a hilarious look at how the final film chapter of the Star Wars saga should have ended. The end cracked me up! Enjoy! 

Well, that’s it for this round of ‘Triple-T’!

My favorite trailers from today: The Giant Mechanical Man, People Like Us, and…well, that’s all. Which ones are your favorites??

Are you ready for the weekend in theaters? Here’s what releases this weekend, April 6, 2012:

  • Wide Release: American Reunion and Titanic 3D
  • Limited Release: Damsels in Distress, We Have a Pope, The Hunter, ATM, and more.

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

T, The Focused Filmographer



  1. The ‘People Like Us’ is surprisingly heartwarming. Nice to see a contemporary drama that isn’t always all about romance. The cast is quite likable, too.

    To Rome With Love might be worth seeing just for the scenery.


  2. Not seeing a lot to enthuse me yet… Paranorman is looking OK, but just OK. Ted doesn’t look appealing (and I’ve yet to like anything Seth McFarlane has had a hand in, so….)

    Rock of Ages at least has decent music, but I couldn’t see a plot beyond “let’s play music” in the trailer, so I don’t know how good of an actual movie it’ll be.

    The rest just struck me as “yup, that’s a movie.”
