FYI: This week a TON of new trailers hit the web. Instead of embedding 12+ videos on one post, at the end of the selected videos below you will find posters for additional trailers. Click a poster to watch its respective newly released trailer.
The Great Gatsby. Here is the latest trailer for the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic re-envisioned for the big screen under the direction of Baz Luhrmann. Pushed back to May 10, 2013 from a Christmas 2012 release date, enjoy this trailer featuring more variety of music for this tale starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joel Edgerton, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and more.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. This newest book series-to-film story stars Lily Collins as a young “normal” girl living in New York City who discovers more about her past and her family when her mother is taken by a demon. Her quest begins with the help of others who, used to this “hidden world,” aid her in finding her mother and, even more importantly, in finding her strength that may just hold the key to eternal victory. Look for this “Twilight-Killer” on August 23.
Grown Ups 2. Adam Sandler and the crew return. Moving his family from the big city to his hometown, Lenny (Sandler) finds time to share fun with family and friends and finds he has more to learn from his kids and the “new” neighborhood crews than he thought. I enjoyed the first film, but I am not excited about this one. Starring Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, David Spade, (NO Rob Schneider), Aly Michalka, Andy Samberg, Taylor Lautner, Shaq and more, look for the grownups on July 12, 2013.
Only God Forgives. I normally do not post red-band trailers (red-band = Rated R), but this one is too fantastic. Plus, short of a few quick snippets of violence which I’ve seen worse of in green-band trailers, I saw no need for the “redband” rating. Director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) brings this story starring Ryan Gosling as a man pushed into a situation to fight against a corrupt police lieutenant in Bangkok. Check out the trailer for Only God Forgives.
The Purge. Imagine a United States that is literally free of crime 364 days of the year due to 1 day (12 hours of 1 day) being set aside for all crime to be considered legal. This curtailing of crime seems acceptable to the society shown in the movie and one family prepares like normal when the day approaches. Only, this routine purge ends up far from routine when a stranger seeking asylum from those wishing to kill him shows up on their doorstep. Those wishing to kill him expand their obsession then to the family helping him. Can they survive the entire night? Ethan Hawke stars in this May 31 release.
2 Guns. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star in this action thriller in which two undercover federal agents, unaware of each others’ true employment, are put in between a rock and a hard place when their investigations of one another find them as the victims of a setup from the mob they are after to begin with. Watching the trailer almost tells you all you need to know and makes me assume that you only need to show up for the last 40 minutes of the movie to know how it ends. meh. This one hits theaters on August 2, 2013.
