The Dark Knight Rises
I brought you the low quality trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” a few days ago, but finally Warner Bros has released the HD version online. I seriously cannot wait to see this movie, and hopefully Christopher Nolan can bring the same level of quality as he did for “The Dark Knight”. The only issue I have with this movie so far is the title, I think they should have been able to come up with something better then “The Dark Knight Rises, maybe “The Dark Knight Returns” as a wink to all us nerds out there? Also, I was considering doing a shot by shot trailer breakdown for this, kind of like my “Game of Thrones” ones. With my ridiculous knowledge of Batman mythology, I should be able to bring a cool perspective to this. Let me know if that would be something you’d enjoy, either in the comments below, email or on my Facebook page.

Wrath of the Titans
The sequel to “Clash of the Titans”, and hopefully this one will be much better. It’s not that I didn’t like it’s predecessor, it’s just that I found it kind of boring. Don’t get me wrong, the action sequences were top notch, but the plot didn’t hold my interest for very long. As a fan of Greek mythology I thought they underused a lot of the cool creatures that filled “The Odyssey” and countless Greek tales. Judging from this trailer, however, they realized their mistake and made up for it big time. Also, from what I can see in the trailer, they made this movie a little darker and turned up the epic scale which is always good.

Jack the Giant Killer
I love when studios take classic children’s tales and turn them into action oriented movies. I love a new spin on an old story and from what it looks like, Hollywood is jumping on that bandwagon next year. First we had the amazingly impressive trailer for “Snow White and The Huntsman”, then the much less impressive trailer for “Mirror Mirror” starring Julia Roberts, and now we have “Jack the Giant Killer”. I have high hopes for this one with Bryan Singer at the helm, although he did seem to stumble with “Superman Returns” a few years back he seems to have found his footing again with “Valkyrie”. I’ll keep my eye on this one, but I think word of mouth will decide whether I’ll be there opening day of not.

Casa de mi Padre
Another Will Farrell being totally absurd vehicle, but hey, at least this one isn’t about a sport. I was getting sick of Will Farrell for a while there, it seemed he was the same cocky sports figure in every movie just like Seth Green is a pothead loser in every one of his flicks. Last years “The Other Guys”, a tragically under rated movie in my opinion, made Farrell an actor I could stand to watch again and hopefully, this will continue that trend.

Battleship
Until to day I die I will never understand the logic of Universal Studios paying Hasbro close to $20 million to use the “Battleship” name. It’s not like this movie has anything to do with the actual board game besides the fact there are naval vessels involved. They might as well have called it “Ships Vs. Aliens” and saved all that money. This pretty much looks like “Transformers: Battle at Sea”….a CGI’d, explosion-filled, special effects eye porn for the summer months. This one is directed by Peter Berg, also known as the poor mans Michael Bay, and is the debut of Rihanna in her first acting role. I might go see this just for Rihanna getting out of the water wearing a bikini in slow motion shot. I haven’t seen the movie, but come on! I’ll bet you a million dollars a scene like that is somewhere in this.

The Dark Knight Rises
This one isn’t the best quality because it hasn’t been officially released, but it’s good enough. This one will be epic.

Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance
I hated the first one, but with the guys that made the “Crank” movies behind this one I’ll be there opening weekend.

The Expendables 2
I was going to wait until next weeks Trailer Ketchup to post it, but it’s way too cool to hold off on. I mean, “The Expandables” was already a fun movie and now the sequel is Chuck-ified (or is it Norris-ified?). Not much in this trailer except for quick shots of all of the cast, but what else do we need? An action movie starring Stallone, Norris, Willis, Van Damme and Schwarzenegger is already a fanboys wet dream.

Big ups to my cousin who let me know about this trailer yesterday.

The Dictator
The new movie by Sacha Baron Cohen, the creator of Borat and Ali G. This trailer is fine, but I doubt the movie will be able to bring back the magic of “Borat”. (I do like the crack about the Kardashians tho)

Hopefully this will be another weekly column I can provide. Click on the title of the movie to view the trailer. Enjoy.

G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation
So it looks like they dumped 99% of the cast from the first one, and the word is Channing Tatum is going to bite it in the first few minutes of this. I already like the feel of this more then the original. I mean The Rock+Bruce Willis+’Splosions=You Can’t Go Wrong.

Rock of Ages
I knew about this flick for a while, but I had no idea it was going to be a musical. I thought it was going to be more biographical, kind of like “Rockstar” with Mark Wahlberg but I guess not. I’m not a big fan of musicals in the first place, especially when they don’t do original material. I’m gonna be skipping this in the theater, but I’ll probably catch it on TV sometime.

Men in Black III
There’s nothing to really say about this movie since its threequel, you already know if you’ll see it or not. I really liked the original but the sequel lost it for me, it just didn’t have the charm of “MIB”. I most definitely won’t be there on opening day, but I might check it out if the word of mouth is good.

Young Adult
I cannot wait to see this. I love Charlize Theron, who is both hot and funny, and on top of that Patton Oswalt is in this. The premise looks great and the writing is just dry enough to make you laugh, but not beat you over the head with the punch line.
