May 17, 2012

Today is THURSDAY!!! And you know what that means!! 🙂 It is officially time for another fun-filled edition of “Trailer Time Thursday!”

Finally, your weekly fix of “Triple-T” (aka: “Trailer Time Thursday!”) has arrived!!

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!

Got a pretty good group of interesting/exciting trailers for you today. ENJOY!!! :)

The Campaign. Hate politics? Well, this comedy make let you enjoy them! Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are running against each other in a political campaign unlike any other. Debates and those annoying political ads would actually be even more fun to watch if they were like this! The congressional seat of North Carolina is up for grabs and these two will stop at nothing to mudsling their way to the seat! Co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, and more, The Campaign begins on August 10, 2012.

The Possession. Sam Raimi produces this upcoming horror of a young girl who buys an antique box at a sale, unaware that it contains an evil spirit inside. Her obsession with the box leads to her opening it and unleashing a curse upon her. Her father recruits help from several sources, including his ex-wife, in order to release her from the curse. Claimed to be based on a true story, this film is set to possess the theaters on August 31, 2012.

Madea’s Witness Protection. An unsuspecting family in need of witness protection is thrust into the home of Tyler Perry’s Madea and all but pandemonium breaks loose. Madea is back and is about to invade New York City. Look out. Starring Tyler Perry, Tyler Perry, and Tyler Perry, along with Eugene Levy and Denise Richards, Madea will be in theaters on June 29, 2012.

Won’t Back Down. Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal work together as a team of parents striving to make change in the school system so that their children can receive the level of education and attention they deserve. But, working against the broken system is never easy. Stand with them on September 28, 2012 as they fight for their children, their love, their future.

Hit and Run. From the producers of Wedding Crashers comes this high-octane adventure of a former getaway driver and his unsuspecting girlfriend who are now on the run as colleagues from a former “job” are after him for the money he owes. Witness protection may not be enough to keep him from danger. Starring Bradley Cooper, Dax Shepherd, and Kristen Bell, HIT the theaters and RUN to your seat to see this one on August 24, 2012.

A Cat in Paris. Already having been released around the world since 2010, this animated adventure finally finds its way to U.S. theaters this year. A mystery that unfolds throughout the course of one evening as a cat with a double life works to help a young girl in need. I’m intrigued to watch this one. Look for it soon!

The Good Doctor. Orlando Bloom may not be as good as you think in this one. He stars as a single successful doctor who becomes attracted to a particular patient. Only that attraction leads to an unhealthy obsession and even worse decisions. Co-starring Michael Peña, Riley Keough, and Taraji P. Henson, look for this thriller on August 31, 2012.

This Week’s “Special Trailer Spotlight”:

4-Minute Super Preview for The Amazing Spider-Man

See how the building patterns on the left create the spider symbol?!! SWEET!

Directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield as our webbed hero, The Amazing Spider-Man will be hitting theaters on July 3, 2012. Several people remain skeptical of this reboot. I’ve been in support of it for quite some time (Read my reasons for the Spider-Man reboot HERE). This week, a 4-min super preview launched and brings more excitement and more questions around what to expect from Marvel’s greatest superhero ever! 🙂 Enjoy.

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

My favorite trailers from today: Won’t Back Down, A Cat in Paris, and The Good Doctor. Which ones are your favorites??

Are you ready for the weekend in theaters? Here’s what releases this weekend, May 18, 2012:

  • Wide Release: Battleship, What to Expect when You’re Expecting, The Dictator (May 16), and Hysteria
  • Limited Release: Virginia, Mansome, Lovely Molly, and more.

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

    Hi T! Well, that Madea trailer shows that your rant from last week is so warranted! 🙂 I’m looking forward to Amazing Spiderman, I think Garfield will be great in this role!

    The Possession looks rather cliche. I didn’t really see anything in it to make it seem different from every other demon possession movie.Never Back Down looks like it could end up being really preachy/simplistic. The Good Doctor seems like it should be a lot creepier, but maybe that’s just me

        The plot synopsis to me reads like it should be a creepy tale of obsession, but i didn’t really get that from the trailer.

    While I love a decent possession-esque horror film, I’m not sure that there’s anything new in The Possession. Nothing we haven’t seen before. Think the last good possession film I watched was The Last Exorcism – really enjoyed that.

    Wouldn’t mind Raimi doing another horror film in the vein of Drag Me To Hell. Love that film.

      Agreed with you on the Possession and Last Exorcism. I think someone needs to put a new twist on the possession horror formula soon cause its getting stale.That’s how i feel anyways

      The Possession looks pretty “been there, done that”. It’s not really my genre.
