Ahoy mateys, I spied some sweet looking trailers with my spy glass this morning. Take thee a look below if ye dare!
Rock Of Ages, Tom Cruise leads and ensemble cast as Stacee Jaxx a 1980′s big hair rock and roll god. Two young people chase follow their rock and roll dreams to the the Sunset Strip. This film was a successful Broadway musical so expect lots of classic 80′s rock, spandex, big hair and acid washed jeans in the numerous dance numbers. Other members of the cast include Bryan Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, and Russell Brand, that’s a lot of star power. Look for Cruise with some long hair and platform shoes to rock a theater near you on June 15th.
Total Recall, A remake of the popular Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone Sci Fi film from 1990. This version stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and Jessica Biel. This film looks to me to be more action and less comedy, and to follow the Phillip K. Dick short story a bit more closely. The action scenes look very impressive in this trailer. Look forward to taking a trip to beautiful Mars on August 3rd.
Safety Not Guaranteed, An indie time travel film, starring Kristen Bell and some actors I never heard of, written and directed by people who I don’t know. However, I like the looks of the trailer. It could be that I am just a sucker for these sort of quirky indie films. Prepare to hop in a time machine or perhaps not on June 8th, at a theater near you. Or perhaps more likely, just at an art house theater and you have to wait for the DVD.
Rise of The Guardians, A DreamWorks animated film starring Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Jude Law and Alec Baldwin, based on a series of children’s books by William Joyce. The fairy tale characters of childhood, protect the world with their magical powers they gain from the belief of children. They fight to protect the world from a new evil threat. Sort of looks to me like Santa Claus meets the Watchmen. Arriving just in time for family Thanksgiving movie going, this film opens on November 21st.
