Check them out and ENJOY!!! :)


The Wolf of Wall Street. Leonardo DiCaprio goes from being Gatsby of the 1920’s to The Gatsby of the 1990’s? This Martin Scorsese film stars not only DiCaprio, but also Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Favreau, Jon Bernthal, Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and more in this story of a Wall Street stockbroker who refuses to cooperate with investigations of fraud and corruption in corporate banking. Money, success and power all have their allure and all come with a cost. Will you pay to see this November 15 release?

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Finally, a trailer for the comedic sequel with more than just a few one-liners. San Diego’s “big deal” continues his career with his crew in this highly anticipated sequel that didn’t quite escalate quickly. Join Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Vince Vaughn and So Many More in this December 20, 2013 release.

Smurfs 2. A new theatrical trailer spotlighting the non-blue Smurfs that we’ve seen on the posters. The Smurfs are on a mission to save Smurfette who has been captured and is in danger. This sequel to the unexpectedly successful Smurfs is hoping to hit it big and not sing the blues when it releases on July 31. Neil Patrick Harris and Katy Perry are just a few of the returning crew for this upcoming release.

The LEGO Movie. From actual toys to fun video games to YouTube fanmade videos and mini-animated adventures and now to the big screen, LEGOS have come a long way. Check out the first full trailer for the upcoming movie about Legos. Here is the synopsis given over at IMDB: “An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together.” Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks and Will Arnett are just a few of the voices behind the LEGOS of this February 7, 2014 release.

Only God Forgives. The latest trailer for the Ryan Gosling-led film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive). A drug smuggling criminal is forced into a complicated position after the death of his brother for which his mother is pushing him to avenge. Releasing on July 19th, I am sure that audiences are hoping for more than what they got from Gosling’s last film, A Place Beyond The Pines.

The World’s End. This hilarious longer trailer for Simon Pegg’s next comedy has several extra bits of “Shaun of the Dead”-isms and had me laughing. Five friends meet up after 20 years to accomplish a night unlike any other. Reminiscing and meeting up with old friends takes a turn for the strange when old acquaintances have been seemingly replaced by aliens and robots. The only safety appears to be at local pub “The World’s End.” Will they make it to the end of the world? Find out on August 23rd.

Teaser trailer for Disney’s Frozenelsa__the_snow_queen__frozen__by_rodrigoyborra-d5sj2uc

Here is the teaser trailer for Disney’s Frozen which is based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale “The Snow Queen.”

In “Frozen,” fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell ) teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff ) and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

Scheduled to release on November 27 this year, this trailer is truly a teaser with little of the plot contained but just enough of a hook with its characters and its beautiful design and animation to keep you interested. Are you ready for this one? For more on it, visit TheHollywoodSpy’s spotlight HERE.

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

My favorite trailers from today: Not sure what I think of a couple this week such as The Lego Movie and how that film is going to work, but my faves of the week are- Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Wolf of Wall Street and The World’s End. 

Which ones are your favorites??

  1. I have absolutely no idea how the hell The Lego Movie is going to turn out. But that trailer blew my mind. I absolutely love it. Hadn’t seen the trailer for Salinger before I read your post. It looks like it could be excellent. Love that trailer too. A trailer for a doco cut like the trailer for an edge of the seat thriller. Strangely works.

    For some reason though, I was pretty underwhelmed by the trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street. Just didn’t make the film look all that interesting to me. Perhaps I need help.


  2. Hi, Terrence:

    Nice looking bunch of trailers you have here.

    It’d be a shame if something happened to them.

    Matthew McConaghey seems far more intriguing than Leo DiCaprio and his stiletto heel worship in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.

    Getting the distinct and interesting familial vibe of ‘The Grifters’ in ‘Only God Forgives’.

    ‘The World’s End’ looks like a keeper for all the right reasons.


  3. Hi, Terrence:

    Matthew McConaughey has really surprised me with his sudden maturity in recent roles. First in ‘Reign of Fire. Where he was refreshingly unrecognizable and over the top. Then ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’. When he started growing up. And in ‘Frailty’, where he latched onto a serenity in his psychosis. Leaving hints of it in ‘Killer Joe’. While easily portraying the nemesis in any “Middle of Nowhere, Texas” pulp novel by Joe R. Lansdale.

    He’ll always be the lecherous Dave Wooderson from ‘Dazed and Confused’. But that is an excellent marker to see how much he’s grown as an actor.


  4. Playing catch-up today…

    Elysium and Stranded look reasonably interesting. The Lego Movie looks pretty iffy to me. Free Birds looks terrible.

    Frozen… is not what I would have expected in a teaser trailer. The background is beautiful, but the antics are more like Ice Age Part 6 than anything I would have expected to go with this story. Really hoping the movie doesn’t rely too heavily on “Olaf”.
