Trailer Park Tuesday: May 5th, 2009

Cinco de Mayo! So dump the P.B.R. and grab a Corona instead! Yee-hah!

OK, so the new Transformers trailer made my inner child wet himself, but I just can’t seem to get excited about G.I. Joe.

District 9

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Star Trek

They Came from Upstairs

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Up

    You know, with all the previews and clips from Star Trek and Up, you almost don’t need to go see the movie.

    Almost. ;)

    In G.I. Joe, I take issue with the “accelerator suits”. What made the cartoon cool (and what sold toys) was the wide array of specialty vehicles. I can’t tell for certain from this trailer, but I’m hoping the suits feature in only one chase scene.

    The cast seems interesting. I’m curious to see how Joseph Gordon-Levitt handles Cobra Commander. Adding in Eccleston, Park, Vosloo, and “Mr. Ecko” might just offset the Wayans factor.

    I’m not expecting great cinema, but it could be fun.

      From the looks of the G.I. Joe trailer, there will probably still be plenty of vehicles. I doubt they’d want to cut down on the number of toys they can sell ;-)

      Plus now they can sell two of each action figure, with and without “Accelerator Suit”.

      Looks like a good summer popcorn flick. Not sure how the nostalgia factor might help or hurt it.

        An August release date for an action movie is never a good sign. I’ll probably check it out, but I’m not hopeful.

    Did anyone else think that the alien ship in the the District 9 trailer looked a little too much like the ships from ID4?

      or the ones from close encounters of the third kind? it’s a very popular style of alien spacecraft, especially where the social aspects of what’s going on appear to outweigh the particulars of the sci-fi aspects.. I think the lesson here is “if you’re looking for an action movie, move along”
