Every Spring around this time they hit, the trailers for the summer movie season. This year they are hitting extra hard, and they are not just summer movies. Last week we got a look at the new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, while this week we get a few more treats upon which to drool.
Despite the fact that I just made fun of Matt Damon in my Shooter review, saying that he doesn’t get to be as bad-ass as Mark Wahlberg, I am glad to see Jason Bourne back in action. The trailer looks great, aside from the fact that there is more footage from the previous Bourne movies than there is of this one, but I can forgive that. Especially due to the hardcore action cuts toward the end. If this one isn’t on your list for 2007, then some re-evaluation may be in order. If you caught the trailer on Yahoo UK and were severely disappointed with the quality (as I was), then you will definitely want to make your way over to FirstShowing.net, where Alex has posted a much better version. The Bourne Ultimatum hits theaters on August 3.
Here is a genre that I don’t get into, but I know a lot of you do. 28 Weeks Later has lots of people getting very excited for its May 11 release. The trailer (available in both standard and HD versions from Apple.com) is somewhat intense, and enough to wet the appetites of fans — and even some non-fans like myself.
Also on the trailer docket is War Inc. starring John Cusak. Cusak plays a hitman (a la Grosse Pointe Blank) who travels into the war zone in Iraq as part of the American commercialization post-war efforts. What sticks out about this one is the cast, and I mean damn. Cusak’s sister Joan pops up alongside Marisa Tomei, Hilary Duff (as a Middle Eastern pop singer…?) and Sir Ben Kingsley. It looks like plenty of fun, so I’d recommend checking out the trailer posted by our friends at The Movie Blog. War Inc. does not have a hard release date as of yet.
