October 18, 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!

Check them out and ENJOY!!! :)

Trailers:

Gangster Squad (new trailer). Check out the newest trailer for this upcoming film starring the likes of Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte, Anthony Mackie and more. It’s gun against gun in this 1940’s and 1950’s time period gangster flick in which certain questionable law-protecting officers  join ranks to fight against the incoming mob attempting to muscle their way in from the East coast. Look for the squad on January 11, 2013.

Back to 1942. During China’s war against Japan a serious drought ravaged the crops and lands of many provinces in China. Adrien Brody and Tim Robbins star in this moving war drama. Watch the subtitled trailer (mind the profanity), and check out the trailer for this upcoming film that releases this upcoming November.

Dragon. Donnie Yen, star of Ip Man, has another movie coming out. This film looks to have plenty to offer for fans of kung fu fighting, time period, and foreign films. The story focuses on a martial arts expert with a jaded past who, when forced to ward off evildoers to protect his home, must face his past as those who question him seek answers and those who knew him before seek his services once again. Look for Dragon soon.

Carrie (teaser trailer). The Stephen King book is re-adapted for film once again.  Chloë Grace Moretz stars as the troubled and tortured schoolgirl. Here is the teaser trailer of the film, directed by Kimberly Peirce (director of Stop-Loss and Boys Don’t Cry), that is set to ignite in theaters on March 15, 2013.

Jack Reacher (Trailer#2). The second trailer for Tom Cruise’s upcoming role as Jack Reacher has hit the web. While Cruise may not resemble all the characteristics of the popular book character, I do like how Cruise uses the situational comedy in this trailer. Makes me a tad bit more interested in this film where Cruise stars as a “homicide investigator digs deeper into a case involving a trained military sniper who shot five random victims.” (imdb)

Zero Dark Thirty (Trailer#2). See a chronicle of the 10year hunt for Osama Bin Laden. Starring Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt and Joel Edgerton, this trailer looks to bring a much better look at the film and draws a greater audience as it ties in drama and action to the story itself. The countdown begins as Zero Dark Thirty will be in theaters on December 19, 2012.

Spotlight Trailer of the Week:

Featurette for Life of Pi

Taken from Collider.com, read the synopsis for this upcoming intriguing movie:

Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger. 

What do you think? Nice to get even more insight into this upcoming movie. It looks great both in the way of visuals and story! Look for Life of Pi to hit theaters on November 21, 2012.

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

My favorite trailers from today: Zero Dark Thirty, Jack Reacher and Dragon. Which ones are your favorites??

    Fine set of trailers, T. As a long-time fan of this period of L.A. history, especially in film, something like ‘Gangster Squad’ gets my attention. Two things, though: 1) this one smacks more of ‘Mulholland Falls’ than ‘L.A. Confidential’ (that’s not a compliment), and 2) the studio has played with its release dates plenty (not a good sign). That they’ve settled on the dumping ground of January should confirm for some of us viewers that it’s probably not going to be classic. I’m just saying.

    ‘Back to 1942’ and ‘Dragon’ I am very curious to see. And as someone who’s read Lee Child’s Reacher novels, Tom Cruise’s film will be carrying around a lot of baggage. Namely, for the most inane casting, like ever. Tiny Tom would be the antithesis for this iconic literary character (at 6′ 5″, 225 lbs, only someone like Ray Stevenson could come close). Don’t get me wrong, it could well be an entertaining action flick. It just won’t be anywhere definitive as a Jack Reacher film adaptation.

    Lastly, the ‘Carrie’ teaser trailer has a number of Stephen King fans talking (me, included). I was aghast when I first saw this, thinking “another remake?” Last one in 2002 (of the 1976 Brian De Palma/Sissy Spacek classic). But a friend assured me this one might actually touch upon King’s original and much more apocalyptic story more closely. And being one who has read the book, now I’m more intrigued with the 2013 release.

    I’ve prattled on too much, I’m afraid. Thanks for posting these, my friend.

      I love and appreciate the “prattling” comment.

      Hadn’t thought about Ray Stevenson but I like the idea of having him foot the bill as Reacher. Still, Cruise actually made me laugh in this trailer (esp the end.) we’ll see how it goes.

      I don’t know what to think yet of the Carrie remake/reboot just yet. I’m on the fence. BUT, I AM looking forward to Dragon. I love Ip Man.

      I am too Scott. Of course, as mentioned in earlier comments, the release date doesn’t bode too well for it. But I’m still interested.
