Bringing another trio of movie trailers for you to check out during your mid-week downtime. Don’t have any downtime? Make some for Trailer-Watchin’ Wednesday!

We may have already seen a trailer for Pixels (and scoffed at it), but the second look actually shows a little something something. Feeling any better about it?

As we get into our second trailer, I’d like to pose a question. People seem to get their knickers twisted about superhero movies coming out or being rebooted too quickly. And yet no one complains about a Peter Pan movie or mini-series or live-on-tv production coming out every season? Regardless, Pan does look pretty darn good. Take a look:

“Oh, it’s a bit upsetting at the end, isn’t it?” I am waiting with baited breath on pins and needles for this documentary called Amy. I was ravenous for Amy Winehouse music, waiting eagerly for the next album or single, until some really bad news hit. This documentary covers just about every day of the tragic journey she took.

Which trailer is number one to you? ~Steve


Sure Michael Jackson’s life was full of controversy, but you can’t deny he gave us so much amazing music that will live on forever, people 50 years from now will still know his name. Along with great music came great noises, here‘s a video of all the random noises MJ made in all of his music _Andrew


TRAILER-WATCHIN’ WEDNESDAY – Vacation, Crimson Peak, Jem and the Holograms


There’s a long weekend coming up, but who are we kidding? You need a break right now! Goo thing it’s time for Trailer-Watchin’ Wednesday. Kick those feet up.

First up is Vacation, but let me give you the disclaimer. This is the raunchy RedBand trailer – not for the young’uns. Looks absolutely hilarious to me.

Next up is an interesting film featuring our favourite adopted-Asgardian Tom Hiddleston. Plus it’s a ghost story from Guillermo Del Toro. Can’t even resist Crimson Peak.

Finally we’ve got a trailer so outrageous that it’s actually an outrage (Nerdist beat me to that joke). Get ready to be totally disappointed by the Jem and the Holograms trailer. Heads up: there are no holograms.

Which trailer is top pick for you? ~Steve

TRAILER-WATCHIN’ WEDNESDAY – Magic Mike XXL, The Last Witch Hunter, Absolutely Anything


Trailer-Watchin’ Wednesday is BACK, time to dive into 3 very different new movies coming out.

Starting with the man candy, Magic Mike XXL‘s trailer has hit the internet hard. No pun intended. Check out the brand spanking new clip.

The next trailer features Vin Diesel as a supernatural hunter and actually manages not to make you groan “Not another one of these movies!” See for yourself with the trailer for The Last Witch Hunter.

The next film reminds me of The Invention of Lying, Bruce Almighty, and Sean of the Dead all wrapped in one. It’s called Absolutely Anything.

Which trailer gets your pick? ~Steve

TRAILER-WATCHIN’ WEDNESDAY – Jurassic World, Batman v Superman, Star Wars: The Force Awakens + MORE


Back after a break from Trailer-Watchin’ Wednesday, where (almost) every week we take some time to get freak out over the sweet new movies coming out. This week… is a doozey. Come along for the ride.

There’s a line in the new Jurassic World trailer that is about the dino park, but actually sounds more like a description of the real-world audience reacting to any new posters and trailers that come out. This one adds a familiar face from the first film, which furthers my suspicions that this new film takes place in a world where the storm never hit the island, the park investors got their testimonials, and the park opened without a hitch.. until someone “made the same mistakes all over again.” Check it out.

The next trailer followed the timeline of Avengers: AoU spots – meaning that it was leaked forcing the studio to release the HD version online early. And fans rejoiced. Then they announced that even more footage would be put into the trailer released when the first was supposed to be dropped. And fans rejoiced. Here is the first full look.. at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

In my opinion, here is the best saved for last. I get chills seeing the downed star destroyer just like I did whenever I see Luke looking into the twin-sunset of Tatooine in Episode 4. Now we’re onto a brave new world in Episode 7. Here’s Teaser #2 for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

And for good measure, here’s Matthew Mcconaughey’s reaction to it, perfectly capturing the awestruck little kids in all of us fans.

Which trailer gave you the most goosebumbs? ~Steve

TRAILER-WATCHIN’ WEDNESDAY – Mad Max: Fury Road, Spy, Spectre


Back on Trailer-Watchin’ Wednesday, where every week we take some time to get all hysterical over new movies coming out. This time we’ve got the second trailer for two movies, and a teaser for the third.

The more I see of Mad Max: Fury Road, the more I like it. Truly looks as though it will both capture the look and feel of the Mel Gibson Mad Max flicks, and add something completely new to the story. The visuals and the soundtrack are mesmerizing.

Next up, a closer look at the upcoming comedy Spy. Ground-breaking? Maybe not, but it looks like solid laughs to me.

Keeping with the spy theme, our final trailer this week blew doors down when it was released. Take a deep look at the immaculately imagined world of the new 007 in Spectre.

Which trailer excited you the most? ~Steve

TRAILER-WATCHIN’ WEDNESDAY – The Vatican Tapes, Insidious: Ch3, Pixels


Welcome to Trailer-Watchin’ Wednesday, where every week we take some time to geek out over new movies coming out. This time around they’re all scary! Two of them because they’re horrors, the third becuse it just looks that bad. Dive in!

First to the plate is another possession movie in a long line of them. But I love possession movies, and if you do too you’ll dig this trailer for The Vatican Tapes

The second trailer to scope out is for the third film in a series: Insidious: Chapter 3. Like the previous chapters, it’s all about the demons, the ghosts, and the creepy other world where time is not as it seeeeeeeems.

Finally the biggest scare of all! Scary because this movie should be comepletely awesome and it truly looks terrible to me. Amazing effects, cool plot, awful awful jokes. Soak in some Pixels.

Which trailer scared you the most? ~Steve
