Trailers R Us

For those who missed the recent spam of upcoming movie trailers; I am here for you. It seems while we are reaching the end of what has been a mediocre year at the multiplex, the trailers below are setting us up for a decent run of entertainment come 2014.

What better way to keep us dedicated movie fans guessing than to throw in a teaser or two with Dawn of the Apes and Godzilla. Or how about the reliance of Happy Madison production to consistently remind us that Adam Sandler is in fact walking the earth unhinged! Movies such as Rob the Mob an Edge of Darkness may be prove a surprising result, and of course we have the return of Chris he would ever abandon us.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)
Directed: Matt Reeves
Starring: Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Jason Clark.

Expectation: Early days of course, but considering Rise of the Apes was one of the best movies of 2012, I see no reason why we can't get the same treatment in this highly anticipated sequel. Excluding James Franco this time, Gary Oldman and Jason Clark isn't a a bad substitution.

The Expendables 3
Directed: Patrick Hughes
Starring (everyone)

Expectation: Mindless as were its predecessors. Pretentious? Never! Amusing, maybe. I love everyone cast for the third movie, as I did in parts one and two. I expect (as should you) nothing more than a brain farted blockbuster; one in which reminds of the existence of those we forgot about...Snipes (cough)

The Amazing Spiderman 2 
Directed: Mark Webb
Starring: Andrew Garfield, Jamie Fox and Emma Stone

Expectation: If the trailer is anything to go by, this sequel should be wonderful and a real fresh of breath air considering the Avengers takeover. 

Rob the Mob
Directed: Raymond De Felitta
Starring: Andy Garcia, Michael Pitt and Ray Romano

Expectation: Good story decent if not random cast; Rob the Mob looks a treat with it's apparent true story concept. I like Michael Pitt and I do wish he would do more. I hope this movie holds up. 

Directed: Gareth Edwards 
Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olson and Bryan Cranston.

Expectation: Following the dog shit we saw back in 1998 when we were forced to follow that awful actor they call Matthew Broderick around New York for over two hours, how can this movie not be good? Heck, it may even be excellent! 

Directed: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Michael Cain, Jessica Chastain and Casey Affleck.

Expectation: Chris Nolan, I am your bitch! Sorry, I mean, yes, this movie based on time travel may prove enjoyable...

Into the Darkness
Directed: Doug Liman 
Starring: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Bill paxton

Expectation: A follow up from Elysium (2013), oh wait. This identical futuristic movie looks pretty good. Ignoring the oblivious dog-poop of yes, you guessed it, Oblivion, Tom Cruise better be of some worth this time around. 

Directed: Frank Coraci
Starring: Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

Expectation: Just when we thought Sandler can do no worse, he does, by simply continuing to act. I am not slating this doofus for his acting skills either, it's just, well, his movies are rubbish. If you remember the last time we saw these two on screen was 50 first Dates (2004), but better yet, The Wedding Singer; a film in which I am willing to give Sandler credit for, as with some other movies of that era (his era) one in which is long deceased. This should be like any modern Adam Sandler flick, awful (and that is putting it nicely).
