Trailer Roundup- Godzilla and a Rom-Com Parody
This week's trailers bring us Godzilla fighting another monster, Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler's new movie, and a new found footage horror flick.
New Asia Trailer for Godzilla
The latest trailer for shows off more footage of the monster than we've seen before. However, I fear that the more we see of the titular creature, the less scary he becomes. The music, along with stunning disaster visuals, work together to create a a tense and high energy trailer that helps to keep me excited for the film. You can check out Godzilla when it comes out May 16, 2014.
Trailer Rating: 4/5 Stars
First Trailer for They Came Together
They Came Together is an upcoming film meant to spoof the tropes of romantic comedy movies. It stars Paul Rudd (Anchorman 2) and Amy Poehler (Parks and Rec) and is directed by David Wain (Role Models). The trailer shows off some clever gags, but all of the dialogue feels a little too self aware. It's hard to nail the tone of the film based on this trailer, but with such amazing talent in front of the camera, I'm expecting hilarity will ensue. They Came Together comes out June 27, 2014.

First Trailer for As Above, So Below
What could possibly go wrong when archeologists go search for lost treasure in the catacombs below Paris? Death? Meeting the Devil? Motion sickness from an unnecessarily shaky camera? According to this trailer for the upcoming "Found Footage" thriller, As Above, So Below, all of the above. While the movie doesn't look to be very visually exciting, (lots of flashlights barely illuminating cave walls,) it does look like it will pack in a few inventive scares. You can check out As Above, So Below on August 15, 2014.
