I’m in a weird state of mind where I honestly don’t know what to watch so until I get my mojo back I’m going to bring back an old favorite…TRAIL MIX! I usually hate trailers now but since I’ve seen nearly nothing in the last month as far as trailers go, I’m gunna post a bunch. Hopefully this gets you ready for the summer by introducing you to something you didn’t know was coming out.
Yup. This is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie. If I can recall, I believe this is going to be the fourth attempt to make a serviceable movie out of the franchise which features turtles kicking ass as ninjas. I was a fan of the first one but mostly because I was ten and it was the 90s. I remember an animated version that released about six years ago when I was an usher at the theater I would go on to manage, but remember it doing poorly. Hopefully this is better than its predecessors but considering Jonathan Liebesman is at the helm, I highly doubt it. His previous movies were Wrath of the Titans, Battle Los Angeles, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Yuck.
Releases July 11
This is one of my most anticipated films of the year. Richard Linklater spends twelve years constructing this film as a boy literally grows up. I can’t even describe in words how cool that is. The fact that Linklater is directing and writing the film only goes to show how amazing it will be. Linklater is in the club of directors who have literally done no wrong. I love all his films.
Releases October 3rd
Fincher has always been one of my favorite directors and even though I didn’t enjoy Benny Button or Girl With a Dragon Tatoo as much as everybody else, he’s still a visionary and I can’t wait to see what he does with this. Also, I love when trailers do this. I have no idea what the film is really about. Hats off to the people who cut the trailer.
Releases July 18th
I love Mike Cahill’s film “Another Earth”. It’s a movie that I would make if I had the ambition and the financial ability. His new film is equally as intriguing and and features Michael Pitt in a starring role which I’ve waited so long to see. I loved him in the “Funny Games” remake and finally he gets to shine. The trailer is a bit revealing so only watch it once and try to scrub your mind afterward.
