So everyone in my house has had the plague for over a week. At this point I am just waiting to see who turns into a zombie first. Good times at least I have had plenty of time to lay on the couch and watch movies. Well when I am not in some sort of illness or medication induced lapse of lucidity anyway. Got a few good looking trailers for folks to check out this week.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Yeah I know your mad they made the Hobbit in two three films. At this point might as well learn to deal with it. We got dwarves of course and they meet some elves and hang out with Gandalf in a spooky forest. Most important thing about this trailer is that we and Bilbo get our first look at Smaug. He looks a bit more fearsome than the animated cartoon version from my youth. Grab your sword or bow or whatever is handy and head to the theater on December 13th to check out this film.
Only God Forgives: A new trailer for what may end up being the years best film that fails to get an oscar nomination. This film won Best Film at the Sydney Film Festival the other day so there is that. I really don’t think they need to put out any more trailers to convince me to go and watch this when it arrives in the U.S. on July 19th.
Hard Ticket To Hawaii: Just checking to make sure you are paying attention with this one. I actually first became aware of this film the other day when I saw a scene involving a frisbee and razor blades. They don’t make them like this anymore. Has anyone actually seen this film in it’s entirety?
The Wolf Of Wall Street: Scorsese directs DiCaprio in this film about securities fraud and excess on Wall Street. Many folks are hoping that this film will finally get Leo an Oscar. I would be more excited if this film caused folks to storm Wall Street, start some show trials and public executions for corporate malfeasance.
So three trailer for three good looking films and one trailer that looks like the epitome of 80’s cheese ball action. Which of these films look interesting to you? Will Leo every win an Oscar?
I don’t think that is a cigarette and I don’t think those are beats by Dre.
