This is Grizzly Bomb’s Trailer Round for February the 5th in the year of 2013…
Olympus Has Fallen
The first thing that comes to mind is, “Merica!” Though heavily reliant upon CGI, this trailer is intense nonetheless. Where else would you be able to receive visuals of this nature? It takes us way back to the year nineteen hundred and ninety-six when we saw the Whitehouse blown to pieces by a city sized space ship in Independence Day. It’s truly a disastrous sight that we would never wish to see in real life, but in a film, it should make one phenomenal story.
Gerard Butler is forced to come out from behind the desk to save the president of the United States Aaron Eckhart. Hostage take overs have been done eight ways from Sunday, but this still looks entertaining and worth checking out. There is something to be said about making a generic story seem appealing.
Director: Antoine Fugua
Stars: Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Dylan McDermott, Radha Mitchell, Ashley Judd, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Jaye Williams, and Melissa Leo.
Release Date: March 22, 2013
Well if it isn’t the most blatant commentary on social status possible? At least they mix in some amazing green screening to keep the story fresh.Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl are destined to remain apart due to class restrictions. That would about sum it up, but if you use Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess, you’ve got yourself a movie.
Director: Juan Solanas
Stars: Kirsten Dunst, Jim Sturgess, Timothy Spall, Agnieshka Wnorowska, Neil Napier, Jayne Heitmeyer, James Kidnie, and Frank M. Ahearn.
Release Date: March 15, 2013
The first thought that came to mind when watching this trailer was, “Is this a real thing?” I suppose it makes sense. If I might have thought transgendered individuals had it difficult as it was, I didn’t even think about what jail would be like.
So thank you Jules Stewart for giving us a look. Yes, I am talking about Kristen Stewart’s mother. Personally, the only redeeming quality I have seen so far is that Jason Mewes is on the cast list.
Director: Jules Stewart
Stars: Goran Visnjic, Kate del Castillo, D.B. Sweeney, Portia Doubleday, Jason Mewes, Sonya Eddy, Luis Moncada, and Tommy Lister.
Release Date: November 26, 2012 Italy
As described this film is, “An agoraphobic father teams up with a renegade priest to save his daughter from the clutches of a gang of twisted feral children who committed an act of violence against his family years earlier.”The entire trailer, I couldn’t decide what was real and what was inside his head. It almost appeared to be a paternal postpartum depression. Is that even a thing? I guess you have to check it out to find out.
Director: Ciaran Foy
Stars: Aneurin Barnard, James Cosmo, Wunmi Mosaku, Jake Wilson, and Amy Shiels.
Release Date: March 1, 2013
So what would be more interesting than following the lives of assassins? How about when they are aged and retired?
In this second installment, we continue to follow Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) who is clearly trying to enjoy retirement. That doesn’t work out too well when he suddenly becomes everyone’s top target.
Director: Dean Parisot
Stars: Bruce Willis, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, David Thewlis, and Byung-hun Lee.
Release Date: August 2, 2013
