Trailers of the Week: (all synopses are directly from IMDB.com)

1. The Hunger Games: Mockinjay, Pt 1.hunger_games_mockingjay__part_one_ver10

  • Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Sutherland and more.
  • Releasing: November 21, 2014.
  • Director: Francis Lawrence
  • Synopsis: “Katniss Everdeen reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the autocratic Capitol.”
  • Thoughts: The countdown continues and the journey has been great. I look forward to what the Hunger Games has in store for audiences. The trailer is not too telling…and I like that. -T

2. The Maze Runner.maze_runner_ver5

  • Starring: Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter and more.
  • Releasing: September 19, 2014
  • Director: Wes Ball
  • Synopsis: “Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they’re all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow “runners” for a shot at escape.”

  • Thoughts: I still don’t feel the need to commit myself to wanting to see this. So many young adult novel films have led to disappointments or just being cheap imitations. Hopefully this doesn’t let down the fans. I have a feeling the other one coming (The Giver) will. -T

3. The Longest Week.longest week

  • Starring:  Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman, Jenny Slate and more.
  • Releasing: September 4, 2014
  • Director: Peter Glanz
  • Synopsis: “Affluent and aimless, Conrad Valmont lives a life of leisure in his parent’s prestigious Manhattan Hotel. In the span of one week, he finds himself evicted, disinherited, and… in love.”
  • Thoughts: I actually want to see this one. Bateman usually has a way of making his film fun even though he is the same in all of them (much like his tv son Michael Cera). Perhaps not “theater-worthy” but I’ll give it a shot. -T

4. Mad Max: Fury Road.mad_max_fury_road

  • Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and more.
  • Releasing: May 15, 2015
  • Director: George Miller
  • Synopsis: “An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.”

  • Thoughts: Max! Max! Max! I’m so there when this comes out! ha. Back to the world of Mad Max! It looks like Bane is having a bad day! And check out Charlize getting down and dirty. This is going to be pure apocalyptic fun. -T

5. Hornshorns-poster-daniel-radcliffe-399x600

  • Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Heather Graham and more.
  • Releasing: 2014
  • Director: Alexandre Aja
  • Synopsis: “In the aftermath of his girlfriend’s mysterious death, a young man awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples.”
  • Thoughts: Harry gets Horns. More of a look at this upcoming film and it definitely can be said that Radcliffe is looking to diversify. Not sure what to think of the premise but it’s interesting seeing Radcliffe’s role choices in his post-Potter career. I liked The Woman in Black well enough so color me curious on this. We’ll see. -T

6. Tusk.tusk

  • Starring: Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment, Justin Long and more.
  • Releasing: September 14, 2014
  • Director: Kevin Smith
  • Synopsis: “A man is captured by a maniac and tortured, physically and mentally, into becoming a walrus.”
  • Thoughts: I just laughed watching this trailer. Am I the only one? I couldn’t take it serious about halfway through. It’s a mix of Misery meets The Human Centipede. I’m sure someone will find this to be cinematic gold! -T

7. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.hobbit

  • Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans and more.
  • Releasing: December 17, 2014
  • Director: Peter Jackson
  • Synopsis: “The Company of Thorin has reached Smaug’s lair; but can Bilbo and the Dwarves reclaim Erebor and the treasure? And, if so, can they hold on to it?”

  • Thoughts: Sad that the journey is coming to its end, but this trailer just makes me want to be there all the more. I feel a marathon in the making! -T

8. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.night

  • Starring:Robin Williams, Ben Stiller, Rebel Wilson and more.
  • Releasing: December 19, 2014.
  • Director:  Shawn Levy
  • Synopsis: “Get ready for the wildest and most adventure-filled Night at the Museum ever as Larry (Ben Stiller) spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.”

  • Thoughts: Not interested. Sorry. That’s all I have to say about this unnecessary sequel…bleah. -T

Spotlight Video of the Week:

New trailer for Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLARinterstellar-movie-poster-2__140326224028

  • Thoughts: Here’s a link to check out the latest trailer for Nolan’s upcoming scifi film. The more I see the more I canNOT wait to watch. You already know I’m a big Matthew McConaughey fan. Add Nolan as director and throw in actors like Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain…man, I’m there! Is it November yet?

Click the link to visit the film’s official site. To watch the new trailer, when it asks for access code, type in the date of the Apollo 11 moon landing of July 29, 1969: …7201969

    Hmm. The new hunger games looks… ordinary? Like, is the movie just a revolutionary battle, cause that would be pretty boring.

    Wow, that Hobbit trailer was dramatic.

    The mad max trailer looks like they’ve replicated the look for the original films pretty well.

      I am excited about Mad Max! Look so good. I thought about the originals too when I saw the trailer. Good point Ian

    I am hugely excited for the new Hunger Games and Hobbit films, because I loved both of last year’s ones. But I was totally underwhelmed by both of those trailers. Did nothing at all to increase my anticipation. Bummer.

    I quite like the trailers for both Tusk and Horns though. Will definitely be checking those two out.

      I canNOT wait to see your thoughts on Tusk. When you get to see it, do me a favor, send me the link to your review! (I apologize in advance that I may forget between now and then, and I am genuinely curious!)

        Will do. No idea when I will get the chance to see it. Have you seen it? Has anyone actually? Not even sure if it has played any fests yet.

    So many movie adaptations of books. I love the novels, The Giver and Maze Runner (which I finished both recently) and really hope they don’t screw up the movie. I can see so much potential is having a successful franchise with those. Especially the Maze Runner, if done right, would be absolutely awesome. But to be honest, I have my doubts about it….the trailers are good but hmm…something still bothers me.
