This past week was a busy one in terms of movie studios debuting trailers for some highly-anticipated films hitting theaters next year. It’s never too early to start promoting these tentpole films. Two of them see beloved franchises returning while the third is another adaptation of a children’s classic.

Universal Pictures kicked things off by debuting the clip for Jurassic World. The film takes place twenty-two years after the events of the original film, Jurassic World is now a fully functioning dinosaur theme park as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). Think Seaworld but with prehistoric animals performing tricks for tourists. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are the two big marquee names going up against killer dinosaurs this time. It crashes into theaters on June 12, 2015.

Next up was Warner Bros’ upcoming adaption of the J.M. Barrie’s classic tale Peter Pan. “This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know,” teased Joe Wright. Based on the clip, he wasn’t kidding. Pan is darker and actually puts the focus on Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Peter’s friendship as they battle the villainous Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman).

Last and certainly not least is Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens from Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm. The film takes place 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Other than that, details for the highly-anticipated film have been kept under wraps. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher reprise their iconic roles for the seventh installment. It storms into theaters on December 18, 2015.

While Jackman does his best Johnny Depp circa Pirates of the Caribbean impression, I’m looking most forward to Jurassic and Star Wars. Both have a lot to live up to given the last film in each respective franchise. Based on the first trailers, both look very promising. Love that each film gives a nostalgic nod to the original movies. If you missed any of the trailers given the holidays, give them a whirl below and weigh in afterward.

The last time George Lucas resurrected Star Wars, it was met with plenty of criticism and a lukewarm response. Jar Jar Binks anyone? This time around the-powers-that-be aren’t playing around and convinced the stars from the original trilogy to reprise their iconic roles. The newcomers joining Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher in the beloved franchise are Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens takes place 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Other than that, details for the highly-anticipated film have been kept under wraps. J. J. Abrams is directing the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan, co-writer of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Lucas’ participation with the new trilogy is somewhat limited. He serves only as creative consultant on The Force Awakens and other new Star Wars films. “I mostly say, ‘You can’t do this. You can do that,’” he told Bloomberg Businessweek. “You know, ‘The cars don’t have wheels. They fly with antigravity.’ There’s a million little pieces. Or I can say, ‘He doesn’t have the power to do that, or he has to do this.’ I know all that stuff.”

The new 88-second teaser trailer does not give away much but it already has me excited to head to a galaxy far far away once again. It already looks much better than Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Check out the first teaser trailer below. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens storms into theaters on December 18, 2015. Let the countdown commence.

Vince Vaughn doesn’t have the best track record at the box office lately. I will say though, I kinda enjoyed his last film, Delivery Man, where he fathers over 500 children. The remake was surprisingly charming, but the original French-Canadian film, Starbuck, was much better.

Vaughn reunites with Ken Scott, the director of those aforementioned films, for his latest movie, Unfinished Business. Their new collabo looks to be a hilarious and raunchy romp. At least based on the first red band trailer it does.

Vaughn plays a hard-working small business owner traveling to Europe with his two associates (Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco). Their goal to close the most important deal of their lives goes off the rails every way imaginable. This leads to unplanned stops at a sex fetish event, a global economic summit and other awkward situations.

Speaking of sex, Franco’s dimwitted character misunderstands the workings of a certain sexual position. This gives us a prime view of his bubble butt propped up in all its glistening glory. Another highlight of the clip occurs when Vince doesn’t give up his first class plane seat to a military man. I won’t reveal anything further than that.

Nic Frost, Sienna Miller and James Marsden round out the cast. Unfinished Business hits theaters on March 6, 2015. Check out the red band trailer below.

Twenty-two years after the events of the original film, Jurassic World is now a fully functioning dinosaur theme park as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). Think Seaworld but with prehistoric animals performing tricks for tourists. Naturally, things go haywire when scientists decide to create their very own hybrid dinosaur. Don’t these idiots ever learn anything ;)

Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the fourth installment with Colin Trevorrow taking on directing duties. Chris Pratt takes a break from guarding the galaxy to play an on-site staff worker who conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors. Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer and Jake Johnson round out the cast. B.D. Wong who played Dr. Henry Wu in the first film books a return trip to Isla Nublar.

Jurassic World
storms into theaters on June 12, 2015. The trailer was originally supposed to premiere on Thanksgiving this Thursday, but someone let the proverbial cat, or in this case a dinosaur, out of the bag early. Check out the exciting clip below.

Unlike NBC’s upcoming heavily-promoted Peter Pan Live! musical, this big budget feature film about the boy who never wanted to grow up looks like it’s not going to be a hot mess. I love that NBC is making musicals into a holiday tradition, but I have a feeling their adaptation is going to crash and burn. The previews haven’t been encouraging at all, IMHO.

Thankfully, Warner’s Bros upcoming adaption of the J.M. Barrie’s classic tale is here to save the day. Director Joe Wright promises, “This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know.”

The studio just released the first four of what will undoubtedly be plenty more character posters to follow. We get our first look at Hugh Jackman as the villainous Blackbeard. The Wolverine actor is definitely serving sinister realness. Others getting their own artwork are Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and Levi Miller as the titular character. Check them out below.

UPDATE: The first full length trailer just dropped and it looks pretty wicked. Watch Jackman channel his inner Johnny Depp circa Pirates of the Caribbean below.

Jurassic World Teaser Trailer Debuts

In: Donovan, Movies
jurassic-world-teaser

Universal debuts the first full length trailer for Jurassic World this Thursday. To whet our appetites, the studio just released a teaser until it premieres. The nostalgic feel of the clip should entice those who loved the original Jurassic Park to return back to the franchise. I have to admit, I got a couple of goosebumps when I saw those giant doors opening in the first few seconds.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, “Jurassic World,” as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). The park is owned by the Patel Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors.

Joining Pratt in the film are Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Judy Greer and Vincent D’Onofrio, with the latter playing the villain. Usually, there’s a character or two from a previous film to make a cameo. In this instance, it’s B.D. Wong who played Dr. Henry Wu in the first film.

Jurassic World was shot in 3D and will be released by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015. Check out the video below.

pitch-perfect-2-trailer

Entertainment Weekly put the leading ladies of the Barden Bellas on the cover of its latest issue. A day after Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow don feather boas, the first trailer for the highly-anticipated trailer debuts online. Fans will be pleased to know it kicks off with a beautiful group a capella performance of “Cups (When I’m Gone).” Aca-mazing!!!

The gang is all back with a couple of new additions including Hailee Steinfeld, Chrissie Fit and Katey Sagel. It appears Pitch Perfect 2 is all about the girls competing against their rivals, the Treblemakers, once again, but this time on the international stage at the World Championships. Elizabeth Banks reprises her role as newscaster Gail and also makes her directorial debut.

Check out the first trailer below. Highlight for me is watching Wilson do a bunch of slapstick including body surfing down a flight of stairs. As Fat Amy states, she nails it!!! Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters on May 15, 2015.

Due to a car accident, Blake Lively’s character Adaline magically stops aging from that moment. Being eternally young, Adaline is forced to change her identity every few years to avoid her secret from coming out. Having loved and lost over ten decades, she closes herself from future romances.

In an interesting casting twist, 81-year Ellen Burnstyn plays her daughter and Harrison Ford is a former young love of hers. It was originally supposed to star Katharine Heigl and Angela Lansbury in Lively and Burnstyn’s roles but Heigl pulled out. Natalie Portman was then offered it but also passed.

Director Lee Toland Krieger is happy that Blake ended up with the part. “For someone who is 27 years old, she’s wildly sophisticated and seems like an old soul,” she explains.

The Age of Adaline is set to open in April 2015. Watch the first trailer below and see if you agree that Blake was the right choice.
