Your trailer, should you choose to watch it.


‘Tomorrowland’ Official Trailer released


Marvel releases new ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ trailer


New international trailer for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

After twenty years, everyone’s favourite road-warrior is back. Younger audiences will doubtless be unaware of George Miller’s dystopian flicks which spawned cult followings in the ’80s, but Max is finally being brought back to the big screen after a long and complicated road. The first trailer was out months ago, but check out the new international trailer for this desert opera.


First trailer for ‘Hitman: Agent 47’

Based on the popular video-game, Hitman: Agent 47 is an onscreen reboot for the character following its lacklustre 2007 debut. This film looks more promising, with seemingly more attention being given to the origins of the character.


New trailer for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Personal partiality notwithstanding, this looks like it’s going to be one good film. Period.


Season 3 Trailer for ‘House of Cards’

The Underwoods are back, and this time Frank graces Netflix as POTUS. If the first episode of Season 2 is anything to go by, expect Frank to whip the White House into shape. Divide et impera.


First trailer for ‘Ant-Man’

It’s been a while since anything has been posted on this page, and it was about time to get back to it. This is a few days late but for anyone who hasn’t yet caught it, Marvel Studios released the first trailer for Ant-Man, which is coming out in July later this year. No doubt everyone is ant-icipating it greatly (sorry).


First look at ‘San Andreas’

The first trailer for the new Dwayne Johnson vehicle, San Andreas, has been released. It’s already making tremors on the internet. No, it has nothing to do with GTA.


‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’ Trailer!

It’s finally here.


First trailer for ‘Pan’

Looks like an original take on the well-known story.


‘Jurassic World’ trailer released!

Contrary to an earlier post where I mentioned that Jurassic World would premiere its first trailer this Thursday, it seems the trailer has been released a few hours ago. Check out the trailer below.


First look at Hugh Jackman in ‘Pan’

Set for a summer release next year, Pan is the story of its titular character Peter Pan from J.M. Barrie’s novel. But that’s about as far as knowledge of the mythical story will get you, since director Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, Anna Karenina) has implied that Pan is not your average Neverland story. It’s got Hugh Jackman playing the famous pirate Blackbeard, captaining a flying ship, kidnapping wartime orphans. Other cast members include Garret Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) playing a young Captain Hook, Rooney Mara (Social Network) as Tiger Lily, Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia), and newcomer Levi Miller playing the eponymous Peter Pan.

Pan hits cinemas July 17, 2015.

Teaser trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ released!

You can’t even call this a teaser trailer, but here’s the first mini-look at the upcoming Jurassic World. Trailer premieres Thursday 27th.


Trailer for Disney’s ‘Cinderella’

There seems to be a general trend of taking well-known Disney stories to the big screen. Look at Alice in Wonderlan, Snow White and the Huntsmen, and Into the Woods which is due for release this Christmas. The latest in this series is Cinderella, for which a trailer has been released today. Stars Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Lily James, and Richard Madden (from Game of Thrones). Hopefully, Madden gets to avoid a red wedding.


Check out some new trailers for upcoming films

Ridley Scott’s biblical-blockbuster Exodus: Gods and Kings may have been overshadowed somewhat by more anticipated films also coming out next month, but this tale of Moses looks to be of epic proportions. Sure to raise the ire of religious conservative the world over and no doubt be banned in some countries, if you’re not familiar with the story in the Old Testament, the abridged version can be found on SparkNotes. Exodus: Gods and Kings will be released December 5, and stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver and Aaron Paul.

The trailer for Divergent: Insurgent (try saying that 5 times fast) was released a few days ago to coincidentally coincide with soon to be released The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. The teaser doesn’t give anything away, but teen-fans will swoon.


Billy Boyd’s End Credits song for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ released

Aptly titled ‘The Last Goodbye’


‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ 2nd extended trailer released

“Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention. I’ve just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you to stop what you’re doing and listen.”

Seems we’re really getting our fill here, take a look.


Star Wars news – new film will be titled ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’

By now you’ve no doubt heard the news regarding the new Star Wars film, and I’m late to the party, but I thought I’d still put this up here since it’s definitely newsworthy. At the time it was released however, the final trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies had just been released and I felt that it took precedence over a title reveal – no doubt I’ll get flak from the Star Wars community, or would if my tiny blog was even on their X-wing radar. But courtesy of CinemaBlend, I can tell you that it takes place 30 years after the events on Endor in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, and that it involves the original cast of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamilton and Carrie Fischer. Not much to go on, depending on who you ask.

Take a look at the Millenium Falcon/Batman mashup.


Final trailer for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ released!

Peter Jackson is not pulling any punches when it comes to the final instalment of the epic Hobbit trilogy, if the trailer is any indication. After The Unexpected Journey’s mixed reviews, critics and fans alike worried over the decision to stretch the relatively short story of c. 300-pages into three full length (as lengthy as only Middle Earth movies can be) feature films. However, the critical success of The Desolation of Smaug brought the naysayers around, and both trailers for The Battle of the Five Armies clearly show that Jackson will deliver the promised goods. December 17 can’t come soon enough.

But enough talk, just take a look for yourself.


‘Chappie’ – Neill Blomkamp’s new project

Director of District 9 and Elysium Neil Blomkamp has unveiled his latest project: Chappie, which tells the story of a robot becoming sentient. Not much else is known of the story, but the trailer points to fierce opposition to “Chappie” ushering in the next step in artificial intelligence.

Reuniting with Blomkamp is frequent collaborator Sharlto Copley, with Chappie marking the pair’s third feature film together. Also starring are Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, and Hugh Jackman in what seems to be a more antagonistic role. Blomkamp has once again taken production to South Africa which lends a gritty, and industrial feel to his films – something which work well with his sci-fi themes.

Chappie will be released March 6, 2015.


Interstellar opens worldwide this week – check out the trailer

Christopher Nolan’s latest project is by far one of his most ambitious, and one of the year’s most highly anticipated films. Following a limited release on October 26, critics have been unanimous in praising the visuals, scope, and themes that Interstellar exhibits. Hopefully the hype that has been generated is not without merit, lest Nolan’s space opera becomes another Prometheus; a sad case of reach exceeding grasp. Reserve judgment until the curtain closes. Interstellar opens in UK cinemas on November 7, get your IMAX tickets ready.


Idris Elba & Tom Hiddleston will appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron

hl3More Marvel updates. True to his nature, Idris Elba has revealed in an interview with The Telegraph, that he and Tom Hiddleston will appear in Marvel’s next blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out in 2015. Both actors will be reprising their roles of Heimdall and Loki respectively. Whether or not Marvel’s spearhead Kevin Feige was planning on holding on to this piece of news until a later date is uncertain, but Elba has never been one to tiptoe the line. How big a role he and co-star Hiddleston will have in the much anticipated sequel has not been revealed, but no one is complaining the return of the fan-favourites.


Furious 7 Trailer Lands!

Following on the heels of the successful Fast & Furious 6, a seventh instalment was put into works to be released the following year. Despite the normal two or three year gap between the sequels, Universal opted to fast-track the film due to the franchise being one of their most profitable cash cows. Production on the film has not been without its difficulties, with the passing of Paul Walker last year.

Here is the trailer, and don’t believe Toretto when he says the crew is going for “one last ride”.


The final trailer for Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 released

The first instalment of the two-part finale hits cinema screens in the UK on November 20 and November 21 in the US. In the latest trailer, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is shown finally embracing her status as the “Mockingjay” and taking up the mantle of leader of the resistance against the Capital’s dictatorial regime.


New Extended UK Trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

Given that the first three posts on this page have been Marvel related, you’d be forgiven for thinking that everything that is posted relates to Marvel in some way. However, it can’t be avoided that Marvel are making the most significant, and movie-newsworthy announcements at the moment. Besides, would you really want to avoid that fact? The following trailer features an extended look at 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing the hammer-lifting clip that fans got a preview of at the San Diego Comic-Con in July earlier this year.
