Trailer Watch: Boom! Kaboom! Pazow! Zap!

Michael Bay’s fourth attempt to make a decent Transformers movies hits theaters on June 27.

Trailer Watch: Transformers: Age of Extinction Super Bowl spot

Michael Bay’s “less goofy” soft reboot of the Transformers films, Transformers: Age of Extinction, stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver. It opens on June 27.

Trailer Watch: Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer

Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, and Ewan McGregor star in X-Men and X-Men 2 (I still can’t call it X2: X-Men United) director Bryan Singer’s latest, an adaptation of the old “Jack the Giant Killer” tale, perhaps better known as “Jack and the Beanstalk.”

I can’t tell if the film is taking itself a little too seriously or not yet from this trailer, but I like the cast, and it looks like it could be fun. I guess we’ll find out on June 15, 2012.

Trailer Watch: The full trailer for The Hunger Games

The full trailer for The Hunger Games premiered on Good Morning America today, with much more about the plot than the teaser trailer (which is little more than a retread of The Running Man or Battle Royale). Jennifer Lawrence continues to look promising as Katniss, but the supporting cast continues to make my face wrinkle with its almost random assortment of talent, including Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Wes Bentley, Toby Jones, and Lenny Kravitz. Many (Harrelson, especially) seem mismatched to the tone the trailer is displaying here… but I guess we’ll see if it all comes together on March 23, 2012.

You can check it out in higher definition over at Apple.
