The past few 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailers have done well in teasing Marvel's upcoming space opera with a star-studded cast, humor galore and one catchy tune ("Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede). But now's the time to set aside the comedy and go for some goosebump-inducing, explosive and just plain riveting new footage ... with a few jokes thrown in on the side.
Idris Elba (aka Heimdall from 'Thor,' aka Nelson 'Mandela,' aka 'Luthor') has consistently been one of the good guys, upholding truth and justice and 'Pacific Rim' Jaeger robots. But in the 'No Good Deed' trailer, he succumbs to the dark side of psychological nature for this new home invasion flick.
The premise is fairly simple:
A wife and mother
The trailer for DreamWorks Animation's 'Home' is an odd one, showcasing a genuinely interesting science-fiction premise but filling the margins with screaming, fart jokes and lame pop-culture references. The 'How to Train Your Dragon' films have bought a lot of goodwill for the studio, but between this new effort and 'The Penguins of Madagascar,' they're pushing it.
Fox Searchlight released the first 'Birdman' trailer, featuring Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor known mainly for portraying a superhero, and it is one helluva of a preview. Evocative and dark, funny and strange, the footage has done what all trailers set out to do: it took something we didn't care about and made us desperate to see it.
'The Interview' trailer suggests that writer/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg aren't taking it easy after 'This Is the End.' Rogen reunites with James Franco to star in the film, and the duo act as the world's worst spies as they head to North Korean with plans to kill Kim Jong-un.
Director Robert Rodriguez released a new 'Sin City 2' trailer unto the Reddit community following an AMA, and it is exactly what you'd expect -- hardboiled narration, stylized black-and-white cinematography, tough guys, sexy women, and an absurdly good cast that includes the likes of Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Lady Gaga.
We've got a brand new trailer for 'The Boxtrolls,' the new film from Laika, the animation studio that brought us the dark and quirky hits 'ParaNorman' and 'Coraline,' and this one looks jut as insanely inventive and totally cute. Who knew trolls could be so adorable?
The first 'Penguins of Madagascar' trailer doesn't even begin to hint at what an odd project this film really is. First of all, it's a spinoff of the 'Madagascar' movies that follows those four scene-stealing penguins as they encounter secret-agent animals voiced by the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch. However, it's a completely different thing from the Nickelodeon series of the same name. Are we looking at DreamWorks Animation's first movie set in an alternate universe?
The 'Dumb and Dumber 2' trailer is here, and it shows that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels haven't lost a step in returning to Harry and Lloyd's idiotic shoes. Sure, late in the game sequels aren't always great, but this suggests that the magic could very well be back.
