Hey Towelites! Another rousing edition of Trailers Galore here. This week, we have dinosaurs that wanna take over the planet, a video game from the creator of Resident Evil, and a look at Woody Harrelson with a full head of hair. Check out the great stuff below!
First up, is a two-shot from Keanu Reeves. We have trailers from 47 Ronin, the fantasy fighting film that he’s starring in. Also, Reeves makes his directorial debut in Man of Tai Chi. One of my favorite things about the trailer is that it’s Rated-R for one word: VIOLENCE.
47 Ronin will be released on Christmas.
Man of Tai Chi comes out in November.
Next, HBO is continuuing its streak of great shows, with True Detective. Meant as an anthology, the first 8 episodes star Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey on a search for a serial killer in Louisiana. True Detective is due out in January of 2014.
Anything that Alfonso Cuaron directs is bound to be a visual feast for the senses, and Gravity looks to be no different. It stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as two astronauts who get lost in space. This new trailer looks creepy and haunting. Gravity comes out October 4th.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet makes the movies of fantasy. Amelie and A Very Long Engagement are two of the most whimsical and enchanting movies I’ve ever seen, and his next film, The Young and Prodigious Spivet, looks to carry on that tradition. The film is out in October over in France, but not until 2014 here in America. I can’t wait to check it out!
If you’ve ever thought the music from “It’s a Small World After all” was scary, then Randy Moore’s, Escape from Tomorrow, is only going to terrify you more. The film takes a creepy look at “the happiest place on Earth”, Disney World. Moore shot at Disney and Epcot without permission and the trailer plays up this fact. The film is due out October 11th.
Shinji Mikami is the father of survival horror. He created Resident Evil, and his latest endeavor, The Evil Within; is the master returning to his craft. The footage below is extremely gorey and creeptastic, and looks like it’ll be a fun game. It’s coming to consoles sometime in 2014.
Finally, Jurassic World is happening in 2015 and I couldn’t be more excited. The footage below is not from that. It’s from a video game of the same name that never happened. The footage premiered at a Star Wars Celebration over in Europe. Looks pretty great, but alas, I’ll have to keep playing my Jurassic Park Builder in the meantime.
That’s it for this edition of Trailers Galore! Hope you Towelites enjoyed, and Stay Tuned for the next one!
