    Movie Trailers

    So we have a "Marvel Movie Trailer" thread. I thought I'd just start a movie trailer thread to post trailers and talking about upcoming movies.

    Personally I'm actually really looking forward to this one, though I'm concerned that the trailer may show a little too much of the movie.

    As someone who read the book, I have that same fear.

    But my girlfriend - who never showed any interest in the book - asked to read it after seeing the trailer. She seemed surprised that it was a book first. And of course see the movie. Hopefully she'll be done when the movie is released in October.

    So it accomplished what a trailer should I think ...

    I think this one looks fairly entertaining. This is turning into the year of spy movies.

    Also this isn't exactly a movie, but it's pretty awesome none the less.

    I'm still up in the air if I'm going to check out Batman v. Superman or Suicide Squad. Neither one has gotten me excited yet. Now Ash vs. Evil Dead on the other hand looks like a whole lot of fun. I'm hoping they can find a balance with the tone and not always go for the laugh, but with it being a half-hour show, I get the feeling that's not going to be the case. Either way, I'm going to check it out if simply because Bruce Campbell is just plain fun to watch.

    Oh I'm totally hooked on BvS and Suicide Squad. I'm really digging the tone / look with what they are going for in those movies. I think it's a great contrast to what Marvel has going. Makes them feel different, which is what they need to do if they want to succeed.

    I heard on a podcast today that Sam Rami direct the pilot for Ash vs. The Evil Dead and that basically no one would say no to him, so the pilot is gonna be crazy.

    I agree about the tone being different from Marvel and that being a good thing. I'm just having a hard time with Jared Leto as The Joker. He's a good actor, but I just can't get past the new character design. My mind might change once seeing it in the context of the movie, but every time I see a picture of him in costume, it just turns me off.

    On the plus side, it looks like Margot Robbie could be turning in an interesting performance as Harley Quinn.

    I really love DC (well, Pre-New 52; sorry, I liked a married Superman and I'm a die-hard Wally West fan) so I'll probably end up seeing these regardless of how I feel about them right now, but I'm just not excited.

    As far as other superhero flicks, Deadpool continues to intrigue me. Reports are that the footage at Comic-Con was well received. Love the comics so I'm on board.

    Yea I'm hearing some pretty good things about Deadpool as well. I also saw some shaky cam footage of X-Men: Apocalypse and that's looking good to.

    Also for those of you who are like me and are full on nut jobs. Here's an album of all the stills from the trailer.

    Trailers make Abrams' films look better than they turn out to be, but I'm in. Got my ticket for IMAX 3d on 17Oct!

    X-Wing Fighter. Still the most badass aircraft/spacecraft in the Stars Wars universe IMO.

    I read an article where a guy made a very strong case that there were on 2 good movies in the series, Star Wars and the Empire Strikes Back. Ewoks, Jar-Jar etc. sort of killed the rest. Found myself in agreement with most of what he had to say. However, Sap that I am, I'm sure I'll go see it.

    Did it mention the horrendously bad dialog in Attack of the Clones? I decided against the SW marathon because I didn't want to sit through the I-III to get to IV-VI. That and the fact that it would start at 1am.

    I never really understood the hate for Return of the Jedi. The ewoks are a little goofy, but overall I think it's a better paced movie than A New Hope. Though Empire is pretty much perfect.

    I never hated the prequels as much as a lot of other people did. I never thought they where bad movies, just that they weren't particularly good "Star Wars" movies. Those movies suffered the most from the fact that George Lucas just isn't a particularly good director. The story isn't particularly bad, I don't really think the CGI is bad, where it really fails is that Lucas treats the actors as if they are props and not actors and doesn't really give them motivation or direction for their characters, just kinda tells them exactly what to do. I actually really contemplated the marathon, but I'd have to take off work for it, and I'm sure it's expensive. I'll just watch them all leading up to it, maybe like one a day or something.
