Clip Mania: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Maze Runner, and More
As we head into the weekend, it is time to take a look at the newest clips that’ve surfaced over the last week. In today’s post, you’ll find one new clip for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Maze Runner, The Expendables 3, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and About Alex. You’ll also find a bonus clip (two total) for Let’s Be Cops and As Above, So Below.
In front of its release this weekend, I have an extended new clip for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The movie stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and even Johnny Knoxville’s (Jackass) voice. Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) directs the Michael Bay-produced reboot. If you’re on the fence about seeing the movie this weekend (like me), the clip could help settle your decision.
Next up is Wes Ball’s The Maze Runner film adaptation. I’m about to cram the book in before this one hits theaters September 19th. But before I bought the book, I checked out the first clip I’ve seen for the upcoming YA adaptation. Ball’s film stars Dylan O’Brien (High Road) and Will Poulter (We’re the Millers). Go ahead and watch the video above.
Splitting TMNT and The Maze Runner is the release of Patrick Hughes’ (Red Hill) actioner The Expendables 3. With a solid cast that includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, and even Mel Gibson, this film has a lot of clout behind it. Watch the clip above and check the full movie out next weekend on August 15th.
Then a week later you can check out Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Incidentally, a new clip surfaced for this one that stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, and plenty more. I wasn’t too high on the original Sin City but am willing to give it another shot before checking this film out on August 22nd. Check out the clip above as well.
Another August release – Luke Greenfield’s (Role Models) Let’s Be Cops – showed off new clips this past week. I’ve said this before, but I’m surprisingly excited for what this one has to offer. Greenfield, in my mind, has proved himself. However, it’s stars Damon Wayns, Jr. and Jake Johnson (both of FOX’s New Girl) that have my excited the most. If you’re excited, watch both new clips above before seeing the movie August 13th.
Speaking of New Girl, I have a clip for About Alex (which stars Max Greenfield). The movie also features fellow TV star Aubrey Plaza (NBC’s Parks and Recreation). Jesse Zwick makes his directional debut starting this weekend already, so if you get a chance to check out the movie, I’d take it! You can also watch the new clip above.
I’ll finish today off with a movie I can guarantee I’ll never see, and it has nothing to do with the quality. As Above, So Below is a film that just terrifies me too much. However, if you’re into that kind of thing (nothing wrong with it, I promise), I’ve got two clips for you! This found-footage horror film stars Ben Feldman (The Perfect Man), is directed by John Erick Dowdle (Devil), and releases August 29th. The clips are above.
Have a great weekend everyone!
