“Trailer Time Thursday!” 5.16.13

May 16, 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:

Rio 2 (teaser). All the birds of a feather are coming back to you whether you want to see them or not! The sequel is slated to fly into theaters in 2014 with plenty of the original vocal talent reprising their iconic avionic roles. Blu and Jewel now have a family and after moving to a new neighborhood, Blu fears losing his family to the “call of the wild.”

Gravity. This trailer will pull you in to the events taking place. Watch as George Clooney and Sandra Bullock lose their grip in outer space. No, this is not a sequel to Solaris. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men), this October 3 release is about two astronauts hoping and trying to get back to home and safety after debris, that crashed into their shuttle, sets them adrift and alone in space. Scary.

About Time. A family has a secret. That secret is that every man in their family has the ability to travel back in time…essentially the power to control big portions of their destiny. When Tim is told this secret at the age of 21, he decides to use it in order to get back the girl of his dreams (Rachel McAdams). He soon learns though that playing with fate doesn’t come without a price. He can change the past, but must live with the future created. Watch this unique time-travel tale unfold and look for it on November 8, 2013.

Hammer of the Gods. In order to help his family, his people and his kingdom, a young man leaves in search of his older brother in hopes of convincing him to return home and help restore order. On his way through the treacherous domain, he quickly transforms into the warrior he has needed all along. The violence increases and the hammers fall as his encounter with his brother, Hakan the Ferrocious, turns out much differently than he expected. Look for it on May 30.

Fruitvale Station. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, this drama is the true story of Oscar, a 22 year old resident of the Bay area, trying to make ends meet who, on the last day of 2008 comes across both friends and foes and has, possibly, one of the worst “wrong place wrong time” moments. Starring Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer, Kevin Durand and more, this one is not one to miss in limited release this July.

Riddick. Here is the first FULL trailer for the upcoming continuation of Riddick’s chronicled tale. Vin Diesel reprises his role as the target of bounty hunters in search of the warrior of the dark. This time around, hunters become the hunted and they all must fight together in order to survive against a new breed of monsters and a man from Riddick’s past. Co-starring Karl Urban, Dave Bautista and more, look for Riddick on September 6.

Spotlight Video of the Week:

Farewell to The Officetheoffice

I know this isn’t “movie-related” but it is actor-related and the actors are in movies…so…there’s my loophole! ha. Oh, whatever! I love The Office…and tonite it ends. Even though it took a little bit to get started, and even though it hasn’t been the best for a few seasons, I’ve stuck with it and a part of me feels sad to say “goodbye” after nine years of watching and re-watching every episode. Thanks to Brian at CanBabiesDrinkRedBull.Com who posted some of his top 10 fave memories of The Office and this video that may require you to have a few tissues in hand for your eyes as we say “Goodbye” to NBC’s The Office tonite!

The final 2-hr episode of The Office airs tonight on NBC.

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

My favorite trailers from today: Gravity, Fruitvale Station and About Time. Which ones are your favorites??

    Anything Alfonso Cuarón does gets my attention. Gravity looks so damn intriguing. Fruitvale Station, too, as it hits close to home. Thanks, T.

        Oh, yeah. I happened to be up at a tech conference in San Francisco around that time when it occurred. Its later trial, ironically, was brought down to L.A. to complete this sad true story.

    Thanks for the link love my friend! That episode definitely met my expectations, sent the characters off in the right way, and made me sob. So mission accomplished! 🙂

    What’s with Rachel McAdams and time travel rom-coms?? 😀 Curious about Gravity, more about the director than the two actors though.
