Could this year's movie releases get any better? Here's some that had us shouting "take my money" at the screen.
The past few days have been ripe with trailers for upcoming movies! It's starting to feel like these movie companies want all of my money. So here's the lion's share of them, all in one place!
Star Wars - The Force Awakens
Well, this one had me yelling out at the screen. With joy! I didn't realize how much I missed Han and Chewie. And the shots of the downed Star Destroyer? Epic. But the best part for me was the voice-over by Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. I think the last time I was this excited for a movie was Phantom Menace, and that cured my excitement within about 20 min. Here's hoping JJ Abrams and crew can pull it off! Premiers Dec 18, 2015.
The Fantastic Four
One Word. DOOM! Ok, more than one word. This trailer made me feel instantly better about the Fantastic Four franchise. There was a lot of worry going thru my mind when the casting was announced, but at least that part of me is settled. Still not sure why we needed yet another origin story, but if you're going to erase your earlier work, maybe this time we can get a full sized actual Galactus. But until then...DOOM! Premiers August 7, 2015
If being Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy wasn't enough to make Chris Pratt the ultimate leading man in Hollywood, then this might do it! Watching him with the velociraptors was really freakin' cool. Hopefully, this movie will bring back the feeling of the first movie, which I remember seeing in the theatre (yup...old school). You walked out of the theatre feeling like you saw something different, something more epic in scale. And if the trailer shows us anything, this might pull off that feeling! Premiers June 12, 2015.
And just to round things out, here's a few more from the past couple months!
Avengers - Age of Ultron - May 1, 2015
Ant-Man - July 17, 2015
And last, but certainly not least...
Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice
I was one of the fist shaker about Ben Affleck becoming Batman, but from seeing him in the suit, and then better than Christain Bale gravelly voice, I think he's won me over. We'll just have to see how it all comes together! I left this one for last, as the premier date looks to be March 2016.
Any trailers you love that I might have missed? Let me know in the comments!
