Recommended Movie Trailers Friday

You know how when one Hollywood film studio makes a Hockey movie, they all make Hockey movies?  Well this year it’s ALL THE APOCALYPSES!

Hunger Games: People have called this Battle Royale with children, but I don’t think that’s a fair comparison as the Games themselves are a relatively minor part of the series.  It’s more ‘about’ the games than it is a movie about the games.  I don’t think that made sense.  Anyway: kick-ass female heroine whose weapon of choice matches mine: the bow.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World: Giant asteroid heading towards Earth, a comedy.  Can’t wait!

Chronicle: Found-footage-style film about boys who get superpowers and one of them (I think) turns evil.  Looks okay, but I’m a little annoyed that it’s teenage boy wish fulfillment.  Didn’t anyone learn the lesson of ‘Descent’?  If you want to change up a drama, change up the genders of your main cast.  Women can be deep and complicated too.

Lockout: The premise: Escape from LA in SPACE has promise.  A trailer opening with a character ACTUALLY being referred to as ‘a loose cannon’ does not.

Prometheus: OH MY GOD YOU GUYS! IS IT THE ORIGIN OF ALIEN?!? IS IT SOMETHING ORIGINAL?!? I DO NOT CARE I WILL BE THERE WITH SKREEKAGOGS ON MY TOES!!
