There’s a bunch of SF/F stuff our way in the near future. I thought it might be nice to actually show our readers what these films are going to look like, in the form of their trailers, and viola!, Trailer Park Thursday! (If I were a QuickTime guru, I’d have those to stream to you. I’m not, so you get YouTube if available.). After the jump, trailer goodness!

  • As John mentioned, The Golden Compass just released their new trailer.

    (You can find a much better looking one on Yahoo! Movies.)

    It looks nice, but ‘ice bears are the bravest of warriors’? That sounds corny. Still, I like the steampunk flavor of the world.

  • Steven Gould’s novel, Jumper, is being made into a movie, re-uniting Hayden Christiansen and Samuel L. Jackson. You decide if a Lucas-less film brings out the ‘acting’ in them.

    This looks……bad. Anyone who read the book care to comment?

  • Apparently the first Alien vs. Predator film did well enough to generate a sequel. This time, a small town in Colorado is caught in the fight between the Aliens and Predators, and lacking the Governator or The Mind to help. Feast your eyes, if you dare.

    Whether the first movie should have been made is a moot point now, but, really, did we need a second? I’m not sure this is even a rental for me.

Looks like The Golden Compass wins this round. The trailer looks spectacular, we’ll have to wait and see how the actual film turns out. After the shellacking The Seeker took this past weekend, New Line has to hope that audience’s haven’t lost interest in fantasy movies.
