Trailer Roundup: Guardians and Expendables

Guardians of the Galaxy International Trailer

This latest trailer is made up of lots of new footage, and shows off the impressive visuals, scope, and sense of humor in Marvel's next film. Most enjoyable is watching the banter and bickering between Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Rocket Raccoon (a CGI Bradley Cooper). In fact, the marketing materials seem to be positioning Rocket Raccoon as the stand out character, delivering both action and humor. This trailer just adds to my excitement for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, which comes out August 1, 2014.

Trailer Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

The Expendables 3 New Trailer

Now this is more like it! I have to admit that I found both The Expendables 1 and 2 to be a little boring. The novelty of seeing so many 80's action stars together, calling back to old catch phrases wore off pretty quickly for me. But this trailer looks like a lot of fun. Much of the existing cast returns, along with new additions: Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, and more. Hopefully this will be an action-packed, last hurrah for Stallone and co. The Expendables 3 comes out August 15, 2014.

Trailer Roundup: Bad Neighbors, Chefs, and The Expendables

A weekly segment where I round up this week's newest Trailers.

New Red-Band International Trailer for Neighbors 

The above trailer is NSFW, but it is certainly funny. Directed by Nicholas Stoller (Get Him To The Greek), this film pits Seth Rogen playing a new dad (This is the End) against Zac Efron playing a Frat Brother (That Awkward Moment). The trailer shows how increasingly ridiculous and immature the rivalry becomes when a frat moves in next door. Quite a few of the gags made me laugh, and I've heard that this is one of the funniest films of the year. Neighbors comes out on May 9, 2014.
Trailer Rating: 4/5 Stars

First Trailer for The Expendables 3

Here's the first trailer for the third film in the surprisingly resilient Expendables franchise. It plays out more as a role call of all the returning faces (Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Crews, etc) as well as newcomers (Ford, Snipes, Gibson, etc). It's quite a crazy cast, but once again it doesn't look like it does anything original  or too exciting with it's immense number of action stars. The Expendables 3 comes out August 15, 2014.
Trailer Rating: 2.5/5 Stars

First Trailer for Chef

Jon Favreau (Iron Man) directs and stars in this charming comedy about a chef that opens a food truck when he loses his job at a restaurant and must rebuild his family. Along with him are many familiar faces, including Dustin Hoffman (Meet the Fockers), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and Iron Man stars Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. The film looks fun, heartwarming, and the food being cooked is absolutely mouthwatering, the only part that didn't work for me was the joke the chose to end the trailer with. Chef comes out on May 9, 2014.
Trailer Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
