Trailer Watch: ScarJo stars in Limitless 2: The Matrix — I mean, Lucy

Luc Besson specializes in ridiculous action movies, so while there’s a lot of conceptual potential here, the Sherlocky (mind palace-esque) bits in the trailer make me feel like the actual movie will probably make me roll my eyes a lot. Even so, it looks pretty fun.

I do really wish filmmakers could let women badasses just be a badass more often without ever resorting to the using-their-feminine-wiles cliché… sigh

Here’s the synopsis:

Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts.

Scarlett Johannson and Morgan Freeman stars in the Luc Besson flick, which hits theaters on August 8, 2014.

Trailer Watch: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles official trailer

Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters on August 8, 2014.

I kind of like the Turtle designs… although I seem to be in the minority there. Speaking of minorities, though, William Fichtner is Shredder. What.

P.S. Don’t forget that I sell TMNT-style Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirts!

Trailer Watch: The Raid 2: Berandal internet trailer

Writer-director Gareth Evans’s The Raid 2: Berandal will relentlessly pummel theaters into submission in the US on March 28th.

Trailer Watch: X-Men: Days of Future Past official trailer 2

Via the official X-Men Movies YouTube channel comes the latest trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, joining the cast of the original X-Men movies with that of X-Men: First Class.

X-Men and X2: X-Men United director Bryan Singer returns to the director’s chair (he also produced X-Men: First Class, but Matthew Vaughn directed that puppy). In this new trailer, it looks like Bryan Singer’s gotten better at action, though some of the effects are kind of goofy. (In all likelihood, the Beast will never look good with practical make-up.) The story and the emotional beats that come with it will be the star, though, and that’s where Singer shines.
