Trailer Talk

It’s official, 2013 is going to be a great year for the sequels ( and trilogies, and prequels – in fact any and all follow up movies seem to be popping up this year…). As I sat and went through the movies I was most looking forward to, I decided that maybe this would be something good to share here. So sit back, relax  and take in the brilliance of the following trailers.

Kick ass’ 2 – 

<Warning explicit language >

Oh.  Dear. God. It’s beautiful. Explosions, car chases, general violence – exactly what a trailer for an action movie should be . I also think that comic book superhero fans will appreciate the tip of the hat to the original superheroes. It appears that ‘Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Johnson) and ‘Hit-girl’ (Chloë Moretz) are facing that age old problem of being the superheroes the city deserves not the ones it needs right now (see what I did there?).  Chloë Moretz was certainly the star of the first movie, and we see the return of her scarily violent character in this trailer, promising more of the same brilliant action shots.

I ended up so engrossed by this sci-fi film that two hours later, as it finished, I was tempted to watch it again. Set in 2089 the film follows the crew of  the  spaceship ‘Prometheus’ on their mission ‘seeking the origins of humanity’. After two years of hyper sleep the crew awakens to find they have arrived at a distant planet, thought to be the home of our ‘Engineers’. However it seems that our potential gods are less interested in meeting the Prometheus crew and more interested in annihilating humanity altogether.

***FUN FACT: Two members of the crew (Elizabeth Shaw and Charlie Holloway) discover what they believe to be a map to the ‘engineers’ on the Isle of Skye in Scotland and this final piece of the puzzle is what gets the team the funding from The Wayland Corp for the mission.***
