“Trailer Time Thursday!” 2.14.13

February 14, 2013

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

Here is your weekly fix of “Triple-T” (aka: “Trailer Time Thursday!”)!!

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:

Jack the Giant Slayer (trailer#2). Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum. With plenty of CGI this one comes! May be exciting, doubt it’ll be dumb, but it may have some of you saying “ho-hum.” The legend of Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk comes in a BIG way to theaters on March 1 with Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor and more.

Hours. Placed in the middle of hurricane Katrina, this film tells the gripping story of a man and his newborn infant daughter who are trapped in a hospital and the lengths he must go to in order to protect her and to keep her alive. Paul Walker may very well be giving the best performance of his life so far. Hours is scheduled for a release sometime this year.

The Internship. Upon realizing that they had been working “for free” for a company, two middle-aged best friends search other employment after being laid off and find themselves in competition with plenty of Generation Y-ers for an internship at Google. Starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, this comedy plays heavily on their comedic experience and generational gaps. Look for The Internship to begin on June 7.

The Company You Keep (trailer#2). One of my more anticipated films of this year. This April 5 limited release stars Shia LaBeouf as an investigative reporter who stumbles across the identity of an underground weather activist who is wanted by the authorities and goes on the run to avoid capture. Suspense, paranoia and intrigue are prominent in this thriller that also stars Robert Redford (stars and directs), Susan Sarandon, Anna Kendrick, Julie Christie, Stanley Tucci and much more.

Detour. Reminding me of Buried and 127 Hours, Detour finds a man trapped in a car all of a sudden when a landslide cakes his car under tons of mud and dirt. His ordeal looks less than enjoyable as we watch him and the life decisions he must make in order to survive. I couldn’t keep my eyes from the screen watching this trailer, which is why it made its way to this post. No release date is currently available except to expect it sometime this year.

Oblivion (trailer#2). This second trailer for director Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) scifi adventure starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman is about a veteran soldier who must return to Earth years after it has been basically destroyed and abandoned in order to eliminate any traces left of an alien race. Things get tricky when he realizes that not all of the previous inhabitants had been blasted to oblivion. Look for this one to hit theaters on April 19.

Additional trailers: Too many trailers this week. Some I already posted on a previous article this week and some just weren’t as great as the ones chosen above. I still have them here for you though. Enjoy. (Click the photo to watch the respective trailer):

Spotlight Video of the Week:

Behind the Scenes Featurette for Oz: the Great and Powerful

Check out this neat behind the scenes look at one of the movies I expect to be great. (It may just be the first real good movie of 2013). Director Sam Raimi takes us back to the wonderful whimsical land of Oz to see how it grew to be the land of legend that we love. Watch as James Franco and cast/crew give us a little bit more of a tease of what to expect from Oz: The Great and Powerful.

Look for it on March 8, 2013.

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

My favorite trailers from today: The Company You Keep, The Internship and Hours. Which ones are your favorites??

    I’m not sure what to think about the Internship yet. The pairing of Vaughn and Wilson, of course, is appealing… but I dont know how it’ll turn out.

    Jack the Giant Slayer just seems lame, to me, though. 😦

      I know what you mean about the internship one Fogs, but I still really want to remain hopeful for another Vaughn/Wilson comedy.

    Nice round up. Oblivion will mark the first time I have ever seen a movie solely because of who scored the music for it. M83 can get me to do anything.

        I mean, it looks kind of bland to me. So, otherwise, yeah, I’d probably skip it.

    Oblivion looks really cool, kinda like Source Code meets The Matrix. I’ll definitely see it for Andrea Riseborough, she is terrific.

      I am not familiar with Andrea Riseborough. The only thing I’ve seen her in was Never Let Me Go and it took me a while to remember her from it. I have some catching up to do on her resume! Thanks for stopping in and commenting. 🙂
