Trailers of the Week: 

Rush. This latest trailer for Ron Howard’s next film focuses not only on the Formula 1 racing, but also a bit more on the character of real life racer James Hunt (played by Chris Hemsworth). This biographic film of Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda stars Hemsworth along with Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, Daniel Brühl and many others and tells Lauda’s story of triumph and testing. Look for the race to the Oscars to begin with this rush on September 27, 2013.

I Declare War. A movie all about summer war games among a group of young friends…only this set of war games is far from just imaginary as it gets out of hand one day. This film, reminiscent to some of Lord of the Flies received plenty of attention at film festivals and looks to be full of fun and grabbing moments. Look for war to begin in a theater near you soon.

Out of the Furnace. Christian Bale stars alongside the likes of Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Casey Affleck, Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker, Sam Shepherd and more in this story of a man who will stop at nothing to find and protect his younger brother who has mysteriously disappeared at the hands of a local lowlife leader. Releasing on December 6, 2013, this Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) directed film will get things heated up this winter.

The Fifth Estate. The behind the scenes story of renowned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Their quest to expose the truth and the damages it caused are the focuses of this October 11, 2013 release that stars a very blond Benedict Cumberbatch.

12 Years A Slave. After watching this trailer, I stated “Oh man, I HAVE to see this.” Based on the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man from New York prior to the Civil War who is abducted and sold into slavery. His survival and hope to see his family once again is the center of this tale that stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Paul Giamatti and many many more. Look for this historically based film in the fourth quarter of the year.

Breaking The Girls. Another “girls with a murderous plot gone wrong” story as two college students make a deal to kill one another’s enemies. Emotions run high and jealousy and betrayal are afoot in this thriller that seeks to gain your view on July 26, 2013.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 (teaser). Enjoy this delightful teaser trailer for the much anticipated sequel to one of DreamWorks’ BEST movie ever. Hiccup and Toothless are ready for adventure in more and I can’t wait to see what comes their way. But I have to wait…until June 20, 2014.

Spotlight Video of the Week:

HISHEdotcom presents- How It Should Have Ended: Man of Steelmanofsteel

If you haven’t seen Man of Steel, then avoid this video. But if you have, enjoy this latest offering from the crew at How It Should Have Ended. These videos are always clever and this time they poke a few holes, as usual, at the plot and destruction in the film. Enjoy.

Ha ha ha. So funny. 😀 I love those videos.

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

My favorite trailers from today: 12 Years A Slave, I Declare War and How To Train Your Dragon 2. 

Which ones are your favorites??

up next: Review for RED 2


  1. There are few potentially intriguing ones. Out of the Furnace has a strong cast. I Declare War looks cool and something about Breaking the Girls could be fun or maybe so bad its good…I don’t know. I’m most psyched about How to Train a Dragon 2!! 🙂


  2. I am SUPER-stoked for 12 Years a Slave. For more Fassbender goodness, go check out EW.com: they have a full trailer for The Counselor up today!


  3. Welcome back T! Lots of good ones here, esp 12 Years A Slave and Fifth Estate, both starring Benedict Cumberbatch, wow! LOVE that HTTYD 2 teaser too.
