Movie Trailer Monday

Each week I review movie trailers that came out the previous week or for movies that are about to premiere. Some of these movies I am excited about, some I am mildly curious about, and the rest I make fun of!

Notable movies coming out this weekend


This is a definite NO for me BUT Jake Gyllenhaal is getting praise for his gonzo performance (I personally think he looks like a cartoon character). [I will also not be seeing this but I am so pleased to see the return of Rene Russo, whose character name I learned from imdb is Nina Romina. Ummm, ok. -M]

Stonehearst Asylum, is out onDemand and for Rent

Dear Kate Beckinsale, remember when you were young and you made good movies like Cold Comfort Farm and The Last Days of Disco and then you made Van Helsing and Underworld and now you make crappy film after crappy film. Kudos for looking hot at 40. [Just in time for Halloween, OF COURSE. Wow, they tricked a lot of good actors to be in this movie! Except Jim Sturgess, I find him so blah. -M]

Movies I can’t wait to see in an ACTUAL theater

Avengers: Age of Ultron, May 1, 2015

I got ridiculously happy when I heard James Spader as Ultron. This movie is SO going to rule! [The music for this trailer is HORRIFYING. Please, Joss, make another trailer that is funny so I will go see your movie. I also strangely dislike Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, they were not my favorite hires for this franchise. Finally, seeing Jeremy Renner made me screech with delight; he is such a great actor and makes everything he is in better. -M]

I won’t go to an ACTUAL theater but will pay for it on Amazon

The Homesman, November 14, 2014

I’m not a fan of Hilary Swank but everyone else in this movie is AWESOME. The trailer leaves me with many questions like why would a person with mental illness want to go to Iowa, why does Hilary Swank care so much for these women, IS SHE TAKING THEM TO MERYL STREEP who I imagine would be an excellent mental health professional. [Why are there so many Hilary Swank movies being released all of a sudden? Her fur cap is really awesome, though. Otherwise, this looks intriguing and the cast includes Landry, SPADER & Miranda Otto. It looks like a great holiday break movie, maybe Thanksgiving week? -M]

The Gambler, December 19, 2014

This trailer is great, the acting looks great (even Mark Wahlberg)  I just don’t think I want to actually watch a movie about a gambler who doesn’t have any money. [Dude, Michael K. Williams!!!! He alone would be enough to make me see this, but there’s also Brie Larson, Mark Wahlberg with long hair, lots of cussing, Jessica Lange, a cool stylized look, and John Goodman! -M]

You would have to PAY me to see it in an ACTUAL theater

Wolves, November 14, 2014

I don’t even know where to begin with this movie except to say that Jason Momoa deserves better and that I hope he had fun making it. Also Jason Momoa is ridiculously hot. [I feel like Katie has the most fun picking the trailer for this category every week. I don’t know, I think this is right where Jason Momoa’s career should be, as he really didn’t show any extraordinary acting skills in Game of Thrones. -M]
