Just got back from Prometheus and it did not disappoint. You can find my review by clicking here. Below are the trailers shown in my theater before the movie. Note – I did not see the 3D version and that almost always means different trailers from those do. As always, I’ll put them in the order of my enjoyment/enthusiasm and leave out the ones I have covered in other ‘Before the Movie’ posts.
Also as always, the official info comes from IMDb and the clips from YouTube.
Director: Ruben Fleischer
A chronicle of the LAPD’s fight to keep East Coast Mafia types out of Los Angeles in the 1940s and 50s.
Release: Sept. 7th, 2012
While old timey gangster movies have lost a bit of their appeal for me since the glut of them in the 80s and 90s, the cast of this one wins me over. I’m still fuming over the fact that Gosling didn’t get nominated for an Academy Award for Drive and he makes my list of “I’ll see whatever that guy is in…except The Notebook.”
Director: Akiva Schaffer
Suburban dads who form a neighborhood watch group as a way to get out of their day-to-day family routines find themselves defending the Earth from an alien invasion.
I had my doubts about this movie, but this trailer is just really, really funny.
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Writer: Quentin Tarantino
With the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.
You’re right – this clearly should have been listed first. Mea culpa – I forgot it until just now. Looks good, no?
Director: David Ayer
Writer: David Ayer
A drama centered on the long-term friendship and partnership between two cops.
I love Jake Gyllenhall as much as the next girl, but I’ll likely save this one for DVD. It looks well-done, but cop dramas don’t do much for me anymore.
They also played the same Savages trailer I’ve seen about 20 times and a new Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter trailer – you can find them by clicking here.
There was also a movie that I have completely forgotten. It’s killing me! Right on the tip of my tongue, but I can’t find it online, either. Probably because I don’t know what I’m searching for. When it comes back to me, I’ll add it.
