TRAILER: Escape Plan

There's been quite a bit of hype building for this flick, and rightfully so, considering it's the first real action flick with these two heavy weights (I don't count the EXPENDABLE movies). I'm interested, sure, but I can't help but feel that it's a couple senior citizens breaking out of prison, which isn't exactly the best selling point. I'd have paid big money to see this ten/fifteen years ago, but nowadays it doesn't feel like anything too spectacular. Time will tell.

TRAILER: 300: Rise Of An Empire

People can say what they about 300, but it's still one of my favorite action flicks of all time (and one of my favorite trailers of all time), and regardless of the haters, it was immensely popular and all the rage when it hit theaters. This movie (which I understood was originally supposed to be a prequel) will be just as epic I assure you. The visuals here are top notch. Zack Snyder is knows his action, and the glimpse of Leonitas at the beginning was all I needed to get the adrenaline pumping for this sequel. March can't come fast enough.

TRAILER: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

I enjoyed the first HOBBIT flick for what it was, and while the tone here looks to be elevated from the first, I can't see it being much different in that department. That said, I see more elves and that's a good sign. Legolas baby, that's what this story needed. Not to mention the always hot, Evangeline Lilly as badass elf chick. Nice. My only complaint is old Smaug, he doesn't look as epic as I'd hoped. THE HOBBIT crossed the billion dollar threshold motherfuckers, the least you can do is give us a cool looking dragon.

TRAILER: You're Next

Much like INSIDIOUS 2, this "house horror" romp via crazies in masks has been done. To death. This is THE STRANGERS meets every other trapped in a house horror flick we've seen in the past couple decades. Again, I like these movies, I do, and I'll watch this, but unless they really bring something new to the table (which I'm not seeing here), I just don't see why we should care. It don't care what this "new angle" is, just give us something that makes this stand out from the pack.

TRAILER: Insidious: Chapter 2

Sometimes a good idea/film should quit while it's ahead. Sadly, this isn't the case in Hollywood these days. I loved INSIDIOUS, don't get me wrong, but this trailer (aside from the creepy bit at the end) isn't showing me anything new--it's also a little confusing considering the first one's ending. Just because a film makes money doesn't mean you should struggle with scraping the bottom of the barrel in an attempt to create a sequel. I hope I'm wrong, but this doesn't feel like anything great.
