Foggy and overcast again here in So Cal. Looks like June gloom already and its only the end of March. Good thing I found these trailers to keep me warm. Four good ones for you to check out including a Riddick teaser and a new World War Z trailer.
Riddick: I was a big fan of Pitch Black and to a bit lesser extent The Chronicles of Riddick. I don’t have much info with regards to the plot and this is the first time I have seen any footage. This footage was actually first spotted on Vin Diesel’s Facebook page which you can check out right here. Riddick is set for a general release on September 16th.
World War Z: Well this trailer is certainly a vast improvement from the first one that they released. While the zombies still seem a bit to CGI heavy for my taste at least we get to see some cool action scenes in this second look. Still have my fingers crossed that this film lives up to the hype but at this point who knows. We can all find out when World War Z shambles into theaters on June 21st. You can check out a few more videos at the official World War Z movie site, located right here.
The Colony: This is actually the first that I heard about this movie which is sort of strange as the film will be in general release shortly. Bill Paxton and Lawrence Fishburne are the leaders of a group of survivors in a post apocalyptic world. Things go from bad to worse when they respond to distress signal from other survivors. I am not sure if they are getting attacked by zombies, vampires or hipsters but something bad is going on. While I read some rumors that this will be released sooner rather than later I could not find any official release date.
A bit of cussing in this next one so if you are easily offended you may want to take a pass.
Kick Ass 2: Wow this second trailer looks great lots of the action and comedy that made the first installment and the comics so much fun. I have to be honest I did not know that was Jim Carrey until another blogger pointed it out to me. Another thing that immediately came to mind was that it looks like Mortez and Taylor-Johnson have been spending some serious time at the gym. For more info head over here to the Kick Ass 2 movie site. Get ready for parents to be horrified when Kick Ass 2 busts into a theater near you on August 16th.
Four pretty solid mainstream trailers to check out this week. I am working on some more obscure trailers for next week edition, if that is more your bag. Till then don’t take any wooden nickels.
These Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra burger recipes cracked me up.
