Trailers for Scary Movie 5, The Lone Ranger, and Kick-Ass 2, featurettes for Oblivion and Olympus Has Fallen, and a poster for After Earth!
Scary Movie 5
Scary Movie 5 has a new trailer that LITERALLY starts with a kick in the balls. That’s the level of humor here. Clearly, this movie was made for me. Then there’s a hispanic lady pooping in a closet and a Honey Boo Boo joke.
The Lone Ranger
The Lone Ranger has a new international trailer meant for the Japanese market, and it’s pretty cool to see the difference in how they promote the film, and it’s honestly cooler than how we do it. The trailer starts more spiritual and focuses on Johnny Depp’s Tonto, then badass rock music starts and it’s all action. That’s how it’s supposed to be. GET ON IT.
Kick-Ass 2 has its first trailer, and it’s quite violent and has a lot of cursing. So it’s appropriate. On the other hand, this is supposed to be a “real” look at people trying to be superheroes, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays the lead, has clearly done a bunch of steroids cause he’s a bigger dude now. And while I overall like the look of the film, and I enjoyed the first one, it feels like it’s trying too hard. I don’t think they’re going to have the same fun of the first. And this is pure fun. There’s none of the real social commentary bullshit they pretend to.
Oblivion has a great new featurette, but I wouldn’t suggest watching it unless you want some of the film spoiled. While I wouldn’t say they give away everything, there’s certainly a lot explained here and I kinda wish I could go into this film not knowing so much. Oh well. The film looks great at least.
Olympus Has Fallen
Olympus Has Fallen has a HILARIOUS new featurette today that has the director, Antoine Fuqua, tries to pretend the film is gritty and real. YEAH. At least Morgan Freeman refers to it in a way that essentially says it’s escapist fun. Which is what it actually is.
So that’s good.
After Earth has a new poster today once again highlighting that the film has father/son team of Will Smith and Jaden Smith. Does this film remind anyone else of Lost in Space? I mean the remake with Gary Oldman.
