“Trailer Time Thursday!” 7.26.12

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 Bachelorette. Reminds me a bit of Bridesmaids, here is a film about a group of bachelorettes who get together to celebrate the arriving nuptials of their “friend” whom they used to ridicule back in high school. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Rebel Wilson, and more, the wedding bells are set to ring on September 7, 2012 (Look for it OnDemand in August).

Life of Pi. This highly intriguing film from Academy-Award winner Ang Lee is the story of a shipwrecked son of a zookeeper who ends up lost at sea with the company of a Bengal tiger, hyena, zebra, and an orangutan. This adventure looks amazing and I can’t wait to see more about it. Look for Life of Pi to sail into theaters on November 21, 2012.

The Master. Finally, a much more telling trailer for this film starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Releasing this October (November in the UK), The Master focuses on a troubled war veteran and his attachment to and blind following of a charismatic intellectual who, leading several followers, appears to be hiding behind the label of “faith.” Expect this one to see another Oscar nom go to Hoffman (I’m calling it now).

Jack the Giant Killer. Not a new trailer, but one that, possibly, has been forgotten since it has been pushed back to March 22, 2013. The tale of “Jack and the Beanstalk” is retold in this visual rendition starring Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, and Ewan McGregor. Directed by Bryan Singer (who directed X-Men, and “reportedly” turned down X-Men: First Class for this film) Jack the Giant Killer looks to be an adventure of gigantic proportions!

Little White Lies. Marion Cotillard and Jean Dujardin team up in this film that has already released in other countries around the world. Coming to theaters in the U.S. on August 24, this “dramedy” revolves around a group of friends whose secrets and desires threaten to drive them apart after a near-fatal accident brings them closer together.

Man of Steel (both versions). These two trailers (one featuring the voice of Jonathan Kent/Kevin Costner, and one with Jor-el/Russell Crowe) are a quick tease for the upcoming DC Comics adventure: Man of Steel. Produced by Christopher Nolan, Directed by Zack Snyder, and Starring Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, look for Man of Steel to leap over several other movies in a single bound on June 14, 2013.

*I have to say, that I enjoy the Man of Steel trailers with the original John Williams score a bit better. Check them out HERE and then you tell me.

This Week’s “Special Trailer Spotlight”:

MUST SEE: International ~6min trailer for Cloud Atlas

This beautiful multi-linear tale of connected life and love, brought by the creators of The Matrix looks so captivating via visuals and story. I can’t wait to see this one actually. Check out the newly released nearly-6minute trailer for this upcoming amazing adventure starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Susan Sarandon, and more. It is set to release in theaters on October 26.

What do you think? Are you excited to see this?

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

My favorite trailers from today: Life of Pi, Cloud Atlas, and Man of Steel. Which ones are your favorites??

Are you ready for the weekend in theaters? Here’s what releases this weekend, July 27, 2012:

  • Wide Release: The Watch and Step Up Revolution
  • Limited Release: Ruby Sparks, Killer Joe, Sacrifice, and more.

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

  1. Bachelorette looks like pretty much a copy of Bridesmaid. And Life of Pi looks great, though the trailer doesn’t give you much in the way of story. But hopefully it will make me some sweet FD points 🙂

    And the trailer for Jack the Giant Killer left me cold last time i saw it.I like Hoult, and i figured with the combination of him in the lead role and the direction of raimi it would be a must-see for me but the trailer just didn’t grab me.

    Also, i don’t get why studios go after trailers. I mean, isn’t there purpose to promote?Anyways, its on of my gambles for my FD because of the inclusion of Whishaw


  2. The trailer for Cloud Atlas is a bit woah. I have no idea about the book , the trailer seems to have a heck of a lot going on. Interesting, but think it overwhelmed slightly .

    The trailer for Life of Pi brought tears to me eyes . Beautiful trailer.

    Jack the Giant Killer looks like fun. Silly, but fun. I liked the look of the first trailer and this one looks just as fun.


    • Cloud Atlas really intrigues me, but I completely get the “overwhelming” part. I hope the Wachowski’s really bring it with that one.

      Nice to know that trailers can still evoke such wonderful feelings such as Life of Pi.


    • I’m actually a little surprised you haven’t seen Little White Lies already. Seeing that (according to imdb) it released in the UK in April2011. ha. I was hoping to have you, or Scott, say: “I loved Little White Lies. It was amazing. Make sure you see it soon, T!” haha. 🙂

      I think it will be a “good, honest feel good film” myself.”


  3. Hi, Terrence and company:

    ‘Life of Pi’ looks like a great Ang Lee film. Very surreal. Right in his unique comfort zone.

    Even if I personally think that the beautiful Bengal tiger would have noshed on the kid within the first few days.

    Is anyone else getting a distinct Charles Foster Kane vibe from ‘The Master’?
