Trailer Watch: Anchorman: The Legend Continues

Nine years after Ron Burgundy and the #1 news team graced the screen, the crew is back is perfectly coiffed, salon-quality hair. This time around, they’re taking the whale’s vagina – or, excuse me, San Diego – by storm with a 24-hour news channel.

I could go on, but I’m currently trapped in a glass case of emotion and can’t do much at all. It’s best you just watch the trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues below:

Trailer Watch: The LEGO® Movie

Here’s something that’s been a looooooong time in the making, and I mean a long time. LEGO (or should I say LEGO®?) has been around for ages – literally the first thing life on Earth found after crawling out of the primordial ooze. It makes perfect sense, then, that there should be a hilarious movie adaptation of the toys hitting screens in 2014.

With an all-star voice cast and a range of LEGO charatcers from classic to DC superheroes and more, check out the first teaser trailer for The LEGO® Movie:

Trailer Watch: 300: Rise Of An Empire

Spartans are tough bastards; 300 showed us if not for their ability to cleave people in two in slow motion, than for the actors getting into statue-esque shape for the roles.

And apparently 8 years later, they’re STILL kicking ass. Maybe not all of them, but enough, and they’re still pissed off at Xerxes. 2014 will see the release of 300: Rise of an Empire, following the exploits of Greek general Themistocles and his abs. Check out the trailer:

Trailer Watch: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Middle Earth returns to the big screen in late 2013 with more EPIC than ever before, showcased in this hot-off-the-press release of the trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Check it out below to get a glimpse of old friends with new contact lenses and new friends with ‘old’ problems.

Get it? Because some of them are immortal…? Aaaand trailer:

Trailer Watch: Machete Kills

It adorned the front page of IMDb all weekend, and after watching the trailer, I knew I had to give it a mention. Machete Kills, the sequel to 2010′s action/gore/violence-packed Machete starring Danny Trejo, makes for one hell of an explosive trailer.

I haven’t seen the original, though to give you an idea of its vibe, I can confirm without spoiling anything that at one point Machete repels down a building using someone’s intestines as rope. +50 points.

What really grabbed my attention, however, was the cast. I won’t list any of them here, because the assemblage of actors in this movie is simply MIND-BLOWING. Who would’ve thought all of these people would ever be in one movie? + 1,000 points.

Trailer Watch: The World’s End (Full-Length!)

If you’ve been jazzed for the new Simon Pegg and Nick Frost film, you’ll be happy to know a full-length trailer has been released. I, for one, was relieved to see that contrary to the title’s implication, this is not another in a long, annoying train of post apocalypse movies we’ve all been subjected to lately.

Check it out, with a brief intro from director Edgar Wright!

Trailer Watch: Pacific Rim

I’ve seen Pacific Rim pop up around the Interwebz now and again, but I’ve never really been compelled to watch it. I can’t say why – maybe because it’s kind of a mash-up of Transformers meets Godzilla meets Gundam Wing meets that really great arcade game Rampage from the late ’80s, and I feel like I’ve seen it before?

Either way, I’ve watched it now and it’s worth passing along, if just for the CGI. Have a look and sound off below on what you think:

Trailer Watch: R.I.P.D.

As soon as I saw this trailer, I knew I had to post it: it’s one of the craziest, quirkiest genre mash-ups I’ve encountered!

Without taking the fun out of watching the trailer, let’s just say it’s a Ryan-Reynolds-Jeff-Bridges buddy cop/sci-fi/western/Men In Black sort of thing. You know those? Yeah.

Check out R.I.P.D.:

Trailer Watch – Arrested Development Season 4

TV’s favourite dysfunctional family (and there are so, so many of them… but this one is the best) is almost back, and one look at this trailer will tell you this season is going to be climbing the stair car to success. Seriously, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise – any Arrested Development haters will be ostrich-cized.

…oh god, I’m stopping myself. Just watch the trailer:

Trailer Watch: Gravity

Gravity is the latest sci-fi film to be gaining steam for a 2013 release. Starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, and directed by Alfonso Cuarón, Gravity is all about astronauts hanging on for sweet, sweet life after debris smashes into their space station 372 miles above Earth.

Check out the teaser below and try not to feel chills at the thought of being cast adrift in the infinite blackness of space:
