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

1. Mad Max: Fury Road.mad_max_fury_road

  • Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult 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 almost 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: Definitely a 2015 release to look forward to. Speaking about the trailer only, I really like the style and music and the fact that Tom Hardy doesn’t speak onscreen yet his expressions say so much. Who’s ready for the madness?

2. San Andreassan andreas

  • Starring: Alexandra Daddario, Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino and more.
  • Releasing: May 29, 2015
  • Director: Brad Peyton
  • Synopsis: “In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.”

Thoughts: Director Peyton deviates from the likes of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore to produce this destruction-filled tale starring Dwayne Johnson. The age-old prediction of California falling off into the ocean comes to fruition in this latest upcoming large scale film with Paul Giamatti’s voice-over. May be earth-shattering…may not.

3. Inside Out.insideout

  • Starring:  The vocal talent of Diane Lane, Amy Poehler, Kyle MacLachlan, Mindy Kaling and more.
  • Releasing: June 19, 2015
  • Director: Pete Docter
  • Synopsis: “Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.”

Thoughts: Oh Pixar, how we’ve missed you. The year without Pixar…2014…is almost over and this next installment is just around the corner. No longer sad, emotions of plenty of moviegoers will undoubtedly be happy!

4. Hot Tub Time Machine 2hottub2

  • Starring: Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, Chevy Chase, Adam Scott and more.
  • Releasing: February 20, 2015
  • Director: Steve Pink
  • Synopsis: “When Lou, who has become the “father of the Internet,” is shot by an unknown assailant, Jacob and Nick fire up the time machine again to save their friend.”

Thoughts: The Great White Buffalo crew returns (sans one John Cusak) and the time travelling begins. Ripping off the past for a certain future turns out to get messier than expected in this sequel. The trailer doesn’t have much of a pull for me but it may be surprising…then again…it does release in the movie dumping ground of February…

5. White Godwhite-god-poster-405x600

  • Starring: Zsófia Psotta, Sándor Zsótér, Lili Horváth and more.
  • Releasing:  March 27, 2015
  • Director:  Kornél Mundruczó
  • Synopsis: “Thirteen-year-old Lili fights to protect her dog Hagen. She is devastated when her father eventually sets Hagen free on the streets. Still innocently believing love can conquer any difficulty, Lili sets out to find her dog and save him.”

Thoughts: I like the style of this trailer and the concept is so relatable.

6. Still Alicestill alice

  • Starring: Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, Alec Baldwin and more.
  • Releasing: January 16, 2015
  • Director: Richard Glatzer, Wash Westmoreland
  • Synopsis: “Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a devastating diagnosis, Alice and her family find their bonds tested.”

Thoughts: Tough subject and this one looks pretty strong and able to touch several people’s lives. Moore looks to bring a more memorable performance alongside a cast that includes Kristen Stewart.

7. The Last Five Years.last five years

  • Starring: Anna Kendrick, Jeremy Jordan, Meg Hudson and more.
  • Releasing: February 13, 2015
  • Director: Richard LaGravenese
  • Synopsis: Based on the musical, a struggling actress and her novelist lover each illustrate the struggle and deconstruction of their love affair..

Thoughts: Anna Kendrick is doing a lot musically lately (Into the Woods, Pitch Perfect 2) and this is no exception. Based on the musical, this upcoming film will be loved by some and missed by others but will likely be right on key for its target audience.

8. The Walkthe walk

  • Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and more.
  • Releasing: October 2, 2015.
  • Director:  Robert Zemeckis
  • Synopsis: “The story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s attempt to cross the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974.”

Thoughts: Joseph Gordon-Levitt reaches new heights and this 70’s flick based on a true story looks pretty nail-biting. When was the last time you saw a movie, based in the 70’s and released in 3D? This will be a wild ride.

Additional trailer: Black or White. -Perhaps Costner will finally be in a good movie this decade? Co-starring Octavia Spencer, Anthony Mackie and more, this film is full of issues of race and relationships and is scheduled to release on January 30, 2015.blackorwhite

  1. Most excited about Inside Out from this lot, in fact I’m featuring that today. Mad Max looks crazy but incomprehensible, I like the cast but I have NO IDEA just what the heck is going on in that trailer. I sure hope it’ll be good.
