TRAILER: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The first Cap movie was alright, for a flick set in WW2 times, but this time around Cap's got a brand new bag I'm digging it. Right off the bat though, I will say this second trailer feels like it's showing me the whole damn movie, but I still feel it's going to be a solid time. Too bad AGENTS OF SHIELD wasn't in any way, shape or form, this good.

TRAILER: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man was my hero growing up. I had all the comics, I watched all the cartoons, I loved Spider-Man. The Sam Raimi films had their moments, but as a hardcore fan, I'm more interested in this new vision. No, I don't think we needed the Lizard in a feature film, but I'm more than ready to see the Sinister Six. With the insanely positive response to The Avengers, it's no surprise that Sony/Marvel have decided to up the ante for Peter Parker. The real question is this: how will Peter deal with this threat? In the comics he always had help via Captain America, The Fantastic Four, and various other heroes, but due to all the rights and red tape in the Marvel universe right now, I'm not sure how that will work. Either way, I'm stoked for this next entry and will be counting down the days until May.

TRAILER: Sabotage

Is it me, or does this almost look like Arnold's version of THE EXPENDABLES with a younger crew? Either way, I like it. This is the gritty kind of cop drama I love from the folks that brought us TRAINING DAY and END OF WATCH--two awesome flicks. And Arnie looks great, better than he did in THE LAST STAND, which was alright, but this definitely looks like a true action comeback. I hope it delivers.

TRAILER: Robocop

The first trailer for this remake didn't do anything for me. This is partly because I love the old one (the first two actually), and partly because I loath the idea of this being remade at a PG-13 level. That said, this second trailer looks great. I love the concept, I love that they didn't simply rehash the old, and I think the visual upgrade looks promising. Will it hold up? Who knows. With robots (due to a lack of blood) sometimes you can make magic with a bit of the old misdirection, and honestly, I'm hoping they pull it off. Either way, this flick now has my full attention.

TRAILER: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Truth be told, I enjoyed the first HOBBIT film much more than I thought I would. I'm very excited for this next entry and the first trailer was great. This extended one, however, elicits all the right emotions, and fuels my adrenaline. I've never been more excited for December than I am right now. I just hope the trilogy ends more evenly than LORD OF THE RINGS did.

TRAILER: The Lego Movie

At first glance, you may think "This is absolutely ridiculous", and well, you'd be right. A Lego movie is as asinine an idea as all the Lego themed video games (of which they make at least one a year). And then I watched it...and laughed my ass off. This will be funny, mostly due to the presence of Batman (for me, anyway), but I think this will be a much funner time than it has any right to be. Okay Hollywood, you win this round.

TRAILER: X-Men: Days Of Future Past

The X-MEN films went through the ringer after X3. Was it a shit show? Kinda, but there's always room for redemption. Fast forward to this summer's WOLVERINE, and more importantly, the end credits scene connecting it to this film, and I think redemption is coming. On the one hand, this flick is ambitious as far as characters go, arguably too ambitious but we won't know until it hits theaters. I have the utmost faith and high hopes for this installment. Brian Singer started our X-Men adventure, and I'm sure he's well aware of the sour taste X3 left in our mouths. This looks like a step in the right direction. That said, Matthew Vaughn's FIRST CLASS was a near perfect take on the franchise and though I'd have rather seen him behind the camera, I won't give up on Singer just yet. The hype is there. The story is there. The cast is definitely there. Let's hope the end result is something epic in nature.
