Trailer Watch – Guardians of the Galaxy

OH EM GEEEEEEE. The first-ever Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has just been released, exclusively shown during Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (how much did they have to pay for that?).

At a first glance, it looks AWESOME! Great effects good casting and really, really funny!! I heard rumours it might be airing originally during the Super Bowl, but obviously that didn’t happen… and now this!

If you need a chuckle and your daily dose of “booyah”, have a watch and leave a comment telling me what you think:

Guardians of the Galaxy is set to premiere August 1, 2014.

New Elder Scrolls Online Trailer – The Arrival

Here at SexyNerdGirl.com, we’ve totally got a nerd boner for the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online. So when the latest cinematic trailer for the highly anticipated MMO dropped this morning, this writer’s reaction went a little something like so.

It’s no surprise I’m once again salivating over the quality of the graphics here – if I could shoot lightning from my hands, I’m pretty sure it would actually look like that.

Story-wise, we pick up right where the first trailer leaves off with a confrontation between the Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact and the Aldmeri Dominion – and the arrival of something much, much more sinister.

Beta tests aside, damn it, April 4 – get here sooner.

See the Original 1976 Trailer for ‘Star Wars’

Recently released is the original teaser trailer for the movie that was to put out-there science fiction into the mainstream spotlight and spawn one of the largest franchises in the world.

1976 saw the following Star Wars IV: A New Hope teaser released, and it’s… underwhelming? To be fair, it was probably the coolest thing ever seen in 1976, but I have to admit it doesn’t exactly hold its place with today’s modern trailers – but that’s an argument for another day.

What’s particularly interesting is the inclusion of the infamous Star Wars font and logo… is missing. It hasn’t been implemented yet. But I suppose Arial will do in a pinch!

Trailer Watch – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Ai! Ai! Hobbit-watchers, this first glorious (or mysteriously foggy if you are where I am) day of October sees the release of the full HD trailer for the next instalment of The Hobbit franchise.

Personally, I’m stoked to finally see more of Middle Earth: Mirkwood, Erebor, the Woodland Realm and even Dol Guldur, which was just a whisper in Tolkien lore until now. Have a watch and let me know what you think in the comments below:

‘ROBOCOP’ Has a Lot of Potential

The new trailer for ROBOCOP is out!

It definitely looks very different from the 80′s classic. The previous iteration addressed the cynicism of the 1980′s perfectly. It was satire. It was bleak. It was brutal.

The new film isn’t going to be a remake that addresses the same themes, and I for one am sort of glad for that. I don’t think remakes need to try to tread the same ground as the original, mostly because they can’t.

Society has evolved and the zeitgeist has changed.

Trailer Watch – Thor: The Dark World

Everyone’s favourite blonde Asgardian god will soon be back for more! I don’t really know who to feel more sorry for – his enemies, or any cities/towns he might be nearby.

Hitting theatres on October 30th, the sequel Thor: The Dark World will definitely be bringing more Mjolnir, more Loki, and more lightning storms to fans. Check out the trailer below:

‘Sherlock’ Season 3 Teaser

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! It’s FINALLY here!! Or… something, anyways. I feel like I’ve grown old and stooped while waiting for BBC’s Sherlock season 3 (though it maaay just be a psychosomatic stoop).

So while I STILL have to wait for the actual thing, I now have 25 seconds of new material (with the promise of more) to salivate over.

P.S. Martin Freeman’s moustache is… quite something.

Trailer Watch – 47 Ronin

Hot off the trailer presses (that is how these things are made, right?) comes 47 Ronin, a tale of an outlaw misfit samurai destined to kick ass and take names. Or maybe just kick ass… I saw no evidence in the trailer of a name list.

Let’s hope the supporting cast in this 300/The Last Samurai mashup is good, because with Keanu Reeves at the helm, I want to feel SOMETHING – is that too much to ask?

But perhaps my favourite part of all is that with a film stacked with explosive CGI, schwingy battle scenes and probably a sex scene or two… is its Christmas 2014 release date. Ho ho shogun, am I right? Check out the trailer below:

Trailer Watch: Jobs

At first glance, no – this movie isn’t a doc about the unemployment rate in North America. A movie like that would obviously be called No Jobs.

Instead, this is the much-anticipated biopic of legendary techmeister and Apple founder Steve Jobs. Chronicling the beginnings and life of Apple, Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad take the helm as Jobs and partner Steve “Woz” Wozniak.

For me, it kiiiind of feels like The Social Network, but with fewer walk-with-me-Aaron-Sorkin sequences. What do you think? Good casting at first glance? Sound off in the comments below. Jobs hits theatres August 16.
