Trailer Round-Up: X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and More
Welcome to this week’s Trailer Round-Up. Like always, there will be seven different films featured and they all include trailer releases from the past week. In the sequel department, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For debuted new trailers (X-Men’s is an international one). In the comedy department, Sex Tape, A Long Way Down, The Grand Seduction, and Trust Me all have new trailers. Lastly, the coming-of-age tale Boyhood debuted its first trailer.
Each film and its trailer, director, stars, and release date are below.
Although we got our last U.S. trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past last week, a new international trailer has released since. If you want a few new looks at the film, which will again star Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and more, take a gander at the trailer. Bryan Singer’s latest foray into the X-Men franchise will debut in theaters May 23rd. Personally, I can’t wait!
Robert Rodriguez (Machete) and Frank Miller’s (The Spirit) Sin City: A Dame to Kill For also unveiled a new trailer. Just like X-Men: Days of Future Past, this one has a pretty impressive cast. The Sin City sequel stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, and more and hits theaters starting August 22nd.
Sex Tape, directed by Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher), gave us another look this past week, too. The comedy is set to come out on July 25th. As you can probably tell from the title, it’ll be about a raunchy tape that is accidentally sent out. The subjects (Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel) of the tape will then be forced to retrieve it. Take a look at the trailer to see more on the film.
Of all the movies (save X-Men: Days of Future Past), Richard Linklater’s (Before Midnight) coming-of-age tale Boyhood is probably my most anticipated of the seven films featured today. Shot over twelve years, the movie will tell the tale of a boy that is growing up during his parent’s (played by Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette) divorce. Boyhood comes out starting July 11th.
If you haven’t heard of A Long Way Down, I’ve got a trailer for you! The dark comedy is directed by Pascal Chaumeil with familiar faces like Pierce Brosnan, Aaron Paul (AMC’s Breaking Bad), and Imogen Poots (Need for Speed). The film adaptation of the novel (of the same name) doesn’t have a U.S. release date quite yet.
Don McKellar’s The Grand Seduction may be another film that isn’t familiar to most. However, people should recognize the names Taylor Kitsch (NBC’s Friday Night Lights) and Brendan Gleeson (Into the Storm). The Grand Seduction is based on the 2003 film Seducing Doctor Lewis and should get a U.S. theatrical date later on this year.
As if Clark Gregg wasn’t busy enough with his role on ABC’s The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., he found time to write, direct, and star in the comedy Trust Me. He’s joined by Jillian Armenante (Bad Teacher) and Luc Austin in the independent film that hits limited theaters June 6th. The first trailer I’ve seen for the movie is above.
Thanks for stopping in, come back tomorrow for the latest posters!
