Crime dramas tend to follow about one of three or four different plot lines, so you'd be forgiven for not getting too excited about Welcome to the Punch, even if it is produced by Ridley Scott. Still, while the trailer does seem to show a film that follows the "good cop has to work with bad guy to uncover secrets" story, it does look like one of the more intellegent films in the genre. But hey, you be the judge, check out the trailer for yourself after the jump.
The East, an eco-terrorist thriller, premiered as a 2013 Official Sundance selection. It stars Brit Marling (also the co-screenwriter), Alexander Skarsgard, Ellen Page, and Patricia Clarkson. It was directed by Zal Batmanglij, who co-wrote the screenplay with Brit Marling.
A full length trailer for Turbo is here, featuring Ryan Reynolds as an ordinary (talking) garden snail who just wants to go fast. After wishing really hard (and an accidental nitrous oxide bath) Reynolds-the-Snail finds that he's suddenly super speedy. Just like a superhero. Or a supersnail. I guess what I'm trying to say is this is a sequel to Green Lantern.
Despite being the third trailer for the film, this is somehow the first time we've actually gotten any solid details on the story. This new video reveals that Gru and the minions are back in this installment, hired to go after a new and dangerous super villain. It also features an Eminem song... for some reason. Check out the new trailer, and strange music choice, below.
How appropriate, our first look at Kick-Ass 2 comes in the form of an awesome red band trailer. It's been almost three years since the original, and it looks like this sequel was worth the wait.
The first After Earth trailer was surprisingly well crafted, and actually got me interested in an M. Night Shyamalan film. This latest one is a solid piece of work as well, helping to set up the relationship between Will and Jaden's Smith's characters, as well as giving us a few more peeks at a post-humanity Earth. I'm keeping my expectations in check, mostly because of The Last Airbender, but count me intrigued. Check out the trailer below.
Joss Whedon's next film is a bit light on the super-heroics and explosions. Instead, it's a microbudget indie film, shot over twelve days at Whedon's own home, during a break in The Avengers' post-production no less. Much Ado About Nothing re-imagines William Shakespeare's play as a modern day, noir-inspired comedy set in Santa Monica. Check out the first trailer below.
The latest Star Trek trailer is only about a minute long, yet it manages to pack every second of it with some kind of action. It's apparently the trailer that went out with Oz the Great and Powerful, so if you haven't seen that yet, check out the new trailer below. Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters on May 17.
A Japanese trailer for Pixar's next, Monsters University, has been released, and there is a lot of new footage. Granted, none of it's in English, but I think the visuals speak for themselves.
The Wolfpack is reuniting (presumably) for the last time, and the third installment is looking to take the gang on their craziest adventure yet. There isn't a lot of plot in this first teaser, but there's enough bizarre imagery to get me interested again, even after the bungled Hangover Part II. It even features an appearance by Melissa McCarthy. Give it a watch below, the trilogy ends on May 24th.
