“Trailer Time Thursday!” 5.24.12

May 24, 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!!! :)

Skyfall. Daniel Craig returns as MI-6 Secret Agent James Bond in Skyfall. Releasing in theaters on November 9, 2012, this film stars several great thespians including Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, RalphFiennes, and more. Directed by Sam Mendes, the enjoyment of a new James Bond movie is a mission I gladly accept. Check out the newest teaser trailer.

The Words. Bradley Cooper plays a struggling writer once again, only this time, instead of taking a drug that unleashes the full potential of his brain, he decides to cheat in a different manner. The Words tells the tale of an author who discovers the price he must pay when he takes the credit for another man’s work and claims it as his own. Co-starring Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Zoe Saldana, and Olivia Wilde, find out if Cooper will get the book thrown at him on September 21, 2012.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues. You’ve been waiting for it! Here is the teaser trailer announcing the sequel to the News Channel comedy, Anchorman. Ferrell returns as the 1970’s choice news reporter of San Diego (Ron Burgundy) and is joined by his pals Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Luke Wilson, and more. The 2013 release is on the way and “I’m not even mad. That’s Amazing!”

Hyde Park on Hudson. Bill Murray stars as President Franklin D. Roosevelt in this time period drama which revolves around the alleged affair between he and his distant cousin (played by Laura Linney of The Big C) during a getaway weekend in 1939 when the King and Queen of the United Kingdom visited upstate New York. Focus Features presents this biopic(?) that will come to theaters on December 7, 2012.

The Master. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams, here is the synopsis for this film, best described by IMDB:

A 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.

You wouldn’t know ANY of that from watching the trailer below. The Master releases on October 12, 2012.

The Apparition. Okay horror fans, here’s one for you straight from the archives of SyFy’s Ghosthunters. The power of the mind is greatly used in this story of “Pandora’s Box” as a group of researchers set out to prove that apparitions exist only when believed in. “Be careful what you wish for” is the moral of so many horror films…but no one ever listens…and then they die! Starring several actors, including Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes from Captain America), The Apparition is set to appear in theaters on August 24, 2012.

The Great Gatsby. Aside from the “AutoTuned” Jay-Z music in the beginning, this trailer has a feel of what one might have imagined when reading the pages of the best-selling book on which the film is based. Directed by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge), this film, based in the Roaring Twenties, tells the story of Midwesterner Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) who moves to New York City and is enthralled and captivated by the lifestyle of his prominent neighbor Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). Falling into his circle, Carraway becomes witness to a dark world he never imagined existed.

With an awesome cast (including Carey Mulligan who beat out many actresses for the part, and Joel Edgerton who replaced an unavailable Ben Affleck), I look forward to seeing The Great Gatsby on Christmas Day 2012.

This Week’s “Special Trailer Spotlight”:

Behind the Scenes look at Ravena in Snow White & the Huntsman

I love this behind-the-scenes look at next week’s wide release: Snow White & the Huntsman! I cannot wait to check it out. I just recently realized the cast of the seven dwarfs includes Bob Hoskins (Smee from Hook), Ian McShane (Blackbeard from POTC: On Stranger Tides), and Ray Winstone (Mr. French from The Departed)! Wow. Well, enjoy this look at director Rupert Sanders’ upcoming tale that releases on June 1, 2012.

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

My favorite trailers from today: The Words, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and The Great Gatsby. Which ones are your favorites??

Are you ready for the weekend in theaters? Here’s what releases this weekend, May 25, 2012:

  • Wide Release: Men in Black III, Moonrise Kingdom, and Chernobyl Diaries
  • Limited Release: The Intouchables; Oslo, August 31st; and more.

    Skyfall and The Great Gatsby look the most interesting out of this crop (though I agree about the music in the trailer for The Great Gatsby being ludicrously out of place). Hyde Park on Hudson looks good, and I like Bill Murray, but I’m not sure this is the sort of film I’d actually enjoy. The Words has kind of an odd trailer… the premise implies “psychological drama and/or thiller”, the music says “uplifting romance”.

      Hey Morgan, thanks for checking out the trailers today. I like this bunch. I was a little thrown off by the music at the beginning of The Great Gatsby’s trailer. ha.

      I, myself, am with you on Hyde but we’ll see.

    Pretty nice batch of trailers this past week. Definitely intrigued by The Master and the return of Joaquin Phoenix to the big screen! The Apparition is one of those movies you always wonder how it got greenlighted in the first place.


    • May 26, 2012 10:04 am

      I am glad to see Phoenix back at it.

    I guess it is all about BOND huh? Although I did like the Gatsby trailer, mainly for the styling

    The Master looks good too


    • May 26, 2012 10:02 am

      The Master really threw me for a loop. I was confused a bit. NOT gonna lie.

      and the style of Gatsby is pretty. Interested to see how this will stack up against Redford’s.

    Hydpe park looks like pure oscar bait


    • May 26, 2012 9:52 am

      ya know, It kinda does, huh?


      • May 26, 2012 4:14 pm

        indeed. Also i’m hoping Gatsby does wel for my FD. Can’t have another Battleship after all 😉


      • May 29, 2012 10:12 am

        haha. yeah, no more Battleship. Don’t worry, that got me with Liam Neeson too though..
