As promised, I bring you some thoughts on a few trailers I watched over this last week, and we’ll start with The Legend of Hercules, starring Kellan Lutz as the half-god of Olympus. Based on the the trailer alone, this is one movie I’m actually not at all anxious to see. It looks like the campy, misshapen, low-budget love child of Gladiator and 300. Nah, if there is a Hercules-movie I wanna watch in 2014, it’s Hercules with Dwayne Johnson, not this crapfest.
Secondly… hey, guess what. We’re getting a new Tarzan-movie. Yupp. Well it’s about time, don’t you think? I thought so, until I saw the trailer. I was really excited about this, until I found out that it would be another animation. But hey, the last animated Tarzan-film was fantastic (the Disney-one from 1999), but this one, well….. it just looks like a CGI-miss mash of shapes, colors and plotlines. Not for me, nope. Well, maybe when it’s out on DVD.
Okay, so I would never in my life have believed you, if you said to me 15 years ago, that I would be excited to see a movie based on something from the Bible, but now… ehm…. Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Duran and many others, one fantastic ensemble for what looks to be a great movie. Yeah, I’m talking about Noah. It looks to have both the visuals and the storyline working for it and I am actually hyping for this one!
And last, but not least, I have to talk about the latest international RoboCop-trailer. I for one, think that at this point, they should’ve left it at the first trailer. It made me want to see it, it took my hype to extreme levels and it satisfied me as much as a trailer should without showing off too much of the film itself, but now… not so much hyped anymore. They stripped it of the tension we first saw in the first trailer and made it feel more, I don’t know…… less good? Yeah, that sounds about right.
There you go, a little mid-day treat for you all. Now, it’s time for some Ultimate Spider-Man and a lot of food, because it’s just one of those days, you know. I’ll be back with some more goodies for you soon, but until then…. Spread the love, share my words!
