It’s a Trailer-polooza!

I have not written about this for a while, because frankly I have not given much mind to trailers as of late. But that it over here and now. Below are a series of posters (mostly for blockbusters) and my take on them.


Man of Steel (June 14)

ILC’s Take: I dunno, don’t get me wrong … this looks fabulous and be certain Henry Cavill is definitely an ILC favorite (I am detecting a pattern here) but I am no way near as hyped for this one as my gut tells me I should be. I guess we will have to wait and see.


The Hangover 3 (May 24th)

ILC’s Take: Could only manage seeing the first once, never saw the second one so chances are the third will be a miss for me. Clearly I missed the meaning on this film series.


Star Trek Into Darkness (May 17th)

ILC’s Take: Geez. There are so many I just picked the last one. Good thing too – features ILC favorite #BenedictCumberbatch. As for the trailer, looks epic, just hope it is not too earnest; part of what made the 1st installment such a joy was that in the midst of the heavy space stuff going on, there was a wink and a nod to the original television series.


Iron Man 3 (May 3rd)

ILC’s Take: Did I really need to watch this trailer? I was going to see this no matter what. I will not use the term epic (learned my lesson in 2012 – Prometheus anyone?). So I will just sit back and enjoy the view.


Kick Ass 2 (August 16th)

ILC’s Take: I can probably take it or leave it but it looks like it has some funny moments.


Carrie (October 18th)

ILC’s Take: The done gone and messed with the wrong chick. Maybe will catch this one on video.


The Great Gatsby (May 10th)

ILC’s Take: I AM HERE FOR ALL OF IT. Good or bad, I am seeing this bad boy in the cinema!

  1. I am in total agreement with you about Superman aka Man of Steel. But I think Marvel is also skewing our feelings towards non-Marvel superhero entries (excluding the Dark Knight of course). The hope here is that the Nolan affiliation will raise Man of Steel to unexpected heights-similar to the way it did Batman Begins (which I too, had similar sentiments going in, as you now do with Man of Steel). Fingers crossed. I’m 100% with your Iron Man 3 assessment…the date of viewing was saved once I knew it was coming out. If it’s bad (which I doubt), I don’t really care. 🙂 Star Trek looks very good, but again brilliant minds think alike, I hope the trailer does not set the bar too high. I almost wish there was no trailer or just a quick flash on the screen that it’s coming out! LOL
