Newest Movie Trailers for the Week of July 9th to 15th
Welcome to your one-stop place to learn all about the week’s newest movie trailers!
DIRECTOR: Steven Soderbergh
FLICKCHART FUTURE: It could either be Children of Men or The Happening. Fishburne’s line about birds has me fearing it’s going to lean more towards The Happening but that cast is too good to waste on junk, right?
John Carter (3-9-2012)
DIRECTOR: Andrew Stanton
FLICKCHART FUTURE: Is this just a rehash of the same general aesthetics of Prince of Persia, or should we expect something more from the source material this film’s based on?
DIRECTOR: Martin Scorsese
FLICKCHART FUTURE: Just a hunch, but I figure the greatest director alive is going to knock this out of the park.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (12-23-2011)
DIRECTOR: Steven Spielberg
FLICKCHART FUTURE: The pedigree behind this is too strong (Edgar Wright, current Doctor Who Mastermind Steven Moffat and Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish wrote the screenplay) to think it’ll be anything but great and this is a damn fine trailer. The animation looks a bit wonky but fully-realized in a way that I’m sure goes down great over the movie’s running time.
The Thing (10-14-2011)
FLICKCHART FUTURE: This “prequel” looks like a fairly effective mash-up of The Thing and The Thing From Another World. At the very least, Winstead should make the movie watchable on a purely carnal level.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits (3-30-2012)
FLICKCHART FUTURE: A fun cast and that fantastically unique Aardman Animation style should make for a solid watch.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (12-16-2011)
DIRECTOR: Guy Ritchie
FLICKCHART FUTURE: Looks just as slick as the first, which I was indifferent too, but is ranked very well.
Arthur Christmas (11-23-2011)
FLICKCHART FUTURE: The trailer doesn’t really do much but seems to make it fairly clear this will be a goofy kids movie above anything else. Despite coming from the fantastic Aardman Animation Studio, I’m thinking it’s more along the lines of Gnomeo and Juliet than something from Pixar.
Higher Ground (8-26-2011)
FLICKCHART FUTURE: Destined to be featured in a later “Under-ranked” post on our blog.
