Clip Mania: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and More
Happy (almost) weekend folks! Today’s edition of Clip Mania could almost be considered Sequel Clip Mania with five of the releases – The Amazing Spider Man-2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, How to Train Your Dragon 2, A Haunted House 2, and The Protector 2 – being direct sequels to previous movies. The only non-original movies with clips are The Other Woman and Mr. Jones. If you’d like to check them out, make sure to scroll to the respective sections.
With its May 2nd playdate quickly approaching, Marc Webb’s Spidey sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 released yet another clip (check all our coverage here). Although I was admittedly not a huge fan of the latest reboot, I have cautious optimism for the next film. It’ll return Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Sally Field while adding Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan as varying forms of antagonists. Check the clip out above.
If you didn’t know it, you’ve probably been living under a rock – but Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes out today! If you need a reason to see the movie, check the latest clip out. The movie will star Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robert Redford. It is directed by the Russo brothers (You, Me, and Dupree), and I am excited to see it!
How To Train Your Dragon 2 also released a new clip. This one is amusingly titled “Itchy Armpit.” Dean DeBlois returns as director with Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler (among plenty of others) returning their voices to the project. This sequel comes out on June 13th for those wondering.
I also found two clips online for the upcoming comedy The Other Woman. Movies like this are generally for women; however, you can tell by the clips the movie is trying to appeal to men via Kate Upton. For those that don’t know (or are too distracted to realize it), the movie also stars Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann (This is 40). Nick Cassavetes’ (The Notebook) film comes out on April 25th.
A week before The Other Woman is A Haunted House 2 on April 18th. This movie also released two new clips (viewable above) this week. Michael Tiddes’ spoof film will star Marlon Wayons (returning from the original), Jaime Pressly (I Love You, Man), and Cedric the Entertainer.
On May 2nd, you’ll be able to also see The Protector 2 (in limited theaters, though). If you are at all interested in this movie, check out the new clip above. It’ll again star Tony Jaa with Prachya Pinkaew set to also return as the director. Enjoy!
The final May 2nd release belongs to Mr. Jones – another limited release. Like the others, this one also released another clip. Karl Mueller’s horror thriller stars Jon Foster (Stay Alive) and Sarah Jones (Still Green) and could turn out to be an interesting film. The clip is above.
Have a great weekend!
