Trailer Watch: Spoiler-free How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer

So the word going around about the new How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer is that there is a massive, why-would-you-put-that-in-the-trailer spoiler in it. I don’t know, because I haven’t seen it.

Thanks to Berk’s Grapevine, here’s a spoiler-free (or spoiler light) version:

Those of you who want to see the original can find it over here. So help me gods, if any of you talk about the spoiler in here, you’ll be banned from commenting. I’d like to try to make it ’til June 13, 2014 (when the movie is out) blissfully unaware of a few details of this movie.

Anyway, though, I guess that’s around when you can expect to see Hiccup again in Multiplex.

Trailer Watch: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to one of the most surprisingly great* action-adventure flicks of the last several years, arrives on July 11, 2014.

Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) directs this time around, but it still looks great. I have a lot of faith in the writers (Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, returning from Rise) that this will be good.

* at least for this Planet of the Apes fan.

Trailer Watch: Alfonso Cuáron’s Gravity theatrical trailer

We got three intense single-take teaser trailers for Alfonso Cuáron’s Gravity back in July, and now, finally, we have a full, theatrical trailer. As I had hoped/expected, it shows us some glimpses of what else is to come — hints that we have no idea what this story is really about. And I love it.

Gravity hits theaters on October 4th.

Trailer Watch: Japanese Space Pirate Captain Harlock trailer

Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina director Shinji Aramaki is back with a CG-animated adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock. This third trailer (all in Japanese, so… hopefully you either speak it, or you’re familiar enough with the anime that you have some idea of what’s going on). I never did, and my Japanese is basically non-existent, so I’m totally lost… but it sure looks pretty.

The film is out in Japan this September, but no signs of an American release at this time. It’s all but guaranteed to make it here on video, eventually, though, so if you’re a fan, just hang in there.

If you really want to spoil it for yourself, there’s about twelve minutes of footage online here.
