Trailer Watch: The Avengers teaser trailer

This is a few days old, of course, but since I’d spaced on posting it here and Alexander Gajic reminded me, so…

I’m very, very excited about this movie, naturally, but other than the Hulk, I didn’t see much in this to get me more excited about it than I already was. They have to save something for the full trailer, of course. (And hopefully for the movie, too.)

Written and directed by Joss Whedon (you know who he is), The Avengers hits theaters on May 4, 2012 in the US.

What do you think?

Trailer Watch: Yet another trailer for The Muppets

If you didn’t know by now, The Muppets are back this Thanksgiving, and here’s what seems like the seventh trailer for it.

“Wokka wokka” had me howling, though. You’ll see.

Trailer Watch: Tom Hardy vs. Chris Pine in This Means War

Chris Pine co-stars as his best friend and convoluted rival for Reese Witherspoon’s affections in McG’s latest, This Means War.

The spy action-comedy looks kind of like Mr. and Mr. Smith, except funnier… or maybe I’ll watch anything with Tom Hardy at this point. Hell if I know. Anyway, it comes out on February 17, 2012.

Trailer Watch: Albert Nobbs

Courtesy Yahoo! Movies, comes the trailer for the film adaptation of the stage adaptation of “The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs,” a short story by Irish novelist George Moore.

The trailer is warm and heartfelt, and while reviews have been mixed, generally reviews have said Glenn Close’s performance as Albert is strong. (Close started the role on stage 15 years ago and co-wrote the screenplay with John Banville).

The film hits (American) theaters on January 27, 2012. Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right) co-star. Rodrigo Garcia (Mother and Child) directs.
