A big batch of trailers for you in this installment, so strap on the popcorn feed bag and lower your awning. It’s time to feast on trailers!
Not content with playing Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons has channeled Sheldon through the character of Oh in Home. While the animation looks pretty good, this one just doesn’t do much for me. Then again, it seems to be aimed those a couple of years younger than me. Nov. 26, 2014.
I hadn’t heard of The Boxtrolls until I saw this trailer. It has such notable actors as Ben Kingsley and Simon Pegg and it’s produced by Laika, the studio behind the other stop motions films Coraline and Paranorman. Again, while I like the look of the film, and the stop motion adds a bit of ‘strangeness’ that fits the story, I’m just not interested in seeing it. My youngest might though. Sept. 26, 2014.
The follow-up to 2005’s Sin City, this film looks identical to the original, at least in its aesthetic. While the first one I found to be somewhat watchable, this one doesn’t grab me either. And I’ll watch anything that Bruce Willis is in (even Hudson Hawk). Aug. 22, 2014.
Birdman is a black comedy of an actor, typecast for playing the iconic Birdman superhero, struggling to mount a Broadway play. It’s certainly not your typical superhero movie, which intrigues me. It doesn’t hurt that Michael Keaton is the lead actor. Oct. 17, 2014.
Terry Gilliam is one of those directors you either love or hate, but you can’t say his movies are visually uninteresting. The Zero Theorem looks like a more ‘futuristic’ Brazil and I’m definitely interested. When’s it hitting the States? And hey, who wouldn’t want to join the Church of Batman the Redeemer?
