If you read this blog on the regular, you know how I love movies and am constantly trying to find time to watch them. Recently, I watched some awesome movie trailers for upcoming movies. Here are a few for you to enjoy.Disclaimer: Profanity and adult situations included.
The Drop—one of James ‘Tony Soprano’ Gandolfini’s last films
Who doesn’t love James Gandolfini? Brilliant as Tony Soprano on HBO‘s The Sopranos, he’s a talent gone too soon. The Drop is a drama about two guys, Marv (Gandolfini) and Bob (Tom Hardy) who work in a Brooklyn bar used as a money drop for local criminals. The bar is robbed of all the seedy cash and the action ensues. The script is based on Dennis Lehane’s (author of the novels “Mystic River,” “Gone Baby Gone,” and “Shutter Island”) short story, “Animal Rescue”. Release date: September 19, 2014
Tammy—Starring Melissa McCarthy who is one of THE funniest character actresses on the planet
I actually saw a different movie trailer for the hilarious new comedy, Tammy, which only shows McCarthy robbing a fast food place. To the theme of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise”. I couldn’t stop laughing! Then I saw this trailer with Kathy Bates and Susan Sarandon. Hysterical. The movie was written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, who is also the director. Release date: July 2, 2014
Let’s Be Cops–Starring Damon Wayans Jr. Enough said! Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson, who also co-star together on the FOX comedy New Girl, play pals who dress up as cops for a costume party. After being treated as real cops while out on the street, they decide to have a little fun with it. But they can’t seem to stop and take it way too far. Release date: August 13, 2014
Sex Tape–a stunning title for hilarious hijinks. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a married couple who want to reignite their lackluster love life. They decide to make a sex tape that they plan to delete afterwards. But the video syncs to their cloud account and is distributed to friends and family members. Diaz and Segel, who are great comedic actors, take drastic measures as they race to stop their loved ones from seeing it. “Nobody understands the cloud, it’s a #$%&*!@ mystery!” Release date: July 25, 2014
The Fault in Our Stars–a beautiful teen love story that transcends age
I read about lots of anticipation on Facebook for this movie, based on the best-selling book by John Green. Then I saw the trailer and fell in love. A young cancer patient who doesn’t know how long she will live meets a boy who shows her how to live. I can’t wait to see this romantic comedy/drama. It stars up-and-comers Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Release date: June 6, 2014
Which one of these movies are you anxious to see?
Will you be spending more time in the movie theaters this Summer? Less?
Do you go to see movies on their opening weekend? Or prefer to wait until the weeks following?
