Trailer Watch: Godzilla extended look

An extended trailer has been posted on the official Godzilla YouTube channel, and it’s pretty great. For the spoiler-averse, there’s actually even less spoilery stuff than the international trailer — what we see is just more from the same few scenes we’ve already glimpsed in earlier trailers. More Bryan Cranston, a little more Ken Watanabe, a tiny bit more Aaron Taylor-Johnson…

Godzilla returns to theaters courtesy director Gareth Edwards (and Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures) on May 16, 2014.

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!
