Trailer Round-Up: Godzilla, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and More
As we come off the first big weekend in May, those of us that saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 can shift our focus to the other blockbuster releases in May. One of those releases is Godzilla which released an international trailer.
The other six movies with a new trailer are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Fault In Our Stars, They Came Together, Lullaby, Love, Rosie (with two trailers), and The Trip to Italy. Check out all the videos below.
Like I mentioned above, Godzilla is the next big movie to release. Coming out on May 16th, the monster reboot film, by Gareth Edwards (Monsters), definitely is a hotly-anticipated pic. It helps that the movie stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), and Elizabeth Olsen (Oldboy). It also helps that the marketing has been ridiculously good for the movie – and that continues above with the latest international trailer (shown in Asian markets). I’d check it out!
The second trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also made its way online. I’m significantly less excited for this movie, but it has until August 8th to change my mind. The live-action film (directed by Wrath of the Titans‘ Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay) stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner (The Dark Knight). Make sure to watch the trailer if you’re excited for the movie.
Gathering more and more steam every day for its June 6th release is The Fault In Our Stars. Based on John Green’s popular novel of the same name, the movie has both the source material and the stars to be a winner (which is weird word given the plot details) this summer. For those that don’t know, Divergent stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort play the love- and cancer-stricken couple. Watch the extended trailer for Josh Boone’s (Stuck in Love) film above.
Although you may not have heard about David Wain’s (Role Models) comedy They Came Together, chances are you’ve heard about the cast. Amy Poehlter, Paul Rudd, and Ed Helms are among the hilarious cast, making me more and more excited for this film. Slated as a parody of sorts, They Came Together also hits theaters this summer (June 27th), so I’d watch the latest trailer if I was you.
Lullaby may be another film that doesn’t exactly make your ears perk up. However, the Andrew Levitas-directed film stars names like Amy Adams, Terrence Howard (Prisoners), and Garett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy). The drama sounds pretty bleak – it’s about a man that is told to take his father off life support within 48 hours – but I’m still interested in the project. As of now, there isn’t a specific release date.
Two teasers landed online for Christian Ditter’s Love, Rosie as well. This one serves as another film adaptation of a popular book (“Where Rainbows End” by Cecilia Ahern). As the teasers show, it stars Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones). If you’re looking to read the book before seeing the movie, you have until October 24th.
And to finish things out, I’ve attach the latest trailer I found for The Trip to Italy. A few years back, I fell completely in love with Michael Winterbottom’s The Trip; therefore, I was ecstatic when I heard there’d be a sequel (titled The Trip to Italy). Winterbottom returns as director with stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon again playing exaggerated versions of themselves. As of now, the film doesn’t have a U.S. theatrical release date.
Thanks for stopping in. Come back tomorrow for a look at the latest posters.
