Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition
I’ve been trying to get this rebooted column kicked off for a while now and this year’s football extravaganza has finally given me the motivation to do so. So welcome to the new trailer park, where we gather the latest trailers and commercials to hit the web and give you our opinions on how interested we are in the movies they promote – in other words, how well the trailers do their... 

Trailer Park: The Dark Knight Rises – Trailer 2

Trailer Park: The Dark Knight Rises - Trailer 2
It’s traditionally accepted that third chapters aren’t as good as their predecessors. While that might be unfair to newer movies, there is a baseline for this reasoning: The Godfather, Part III, Spider-Man 3, Superman 3 (you know, the one with Richard Pryor?), all of them build on a successful foundation but unable to live up to the success of the first two movies. It’s understandable... 

Trailer Park: Ted

Trailer Park: Ted
I know a lot of people who obsess over Seth MacFarlane’s work. I’ve been a fan of Family Guy for a while, but as the creator has put out more and more work (American Dad, The Cleveland Show), I have to admit I’ve felt like he just uses the same shtick over and over again. It’s funny, but there’s not much originality to it once you’ve gotten used to his style of humor. MacFarlane’s theatrical... 

Trailer Park: Dark Shadows

Trailer Park: Dark Shadows
I wasn’t a big fan of the original Dark Shadows, which precedes me by a few years. In fact, I wasn’t even aware of the soapy show until the series saw a reboot in the ‘80s with Ben Cross in the lead role of Barnabas Collins, the cursed vampire ancestor of the Collins household at the center of the series. That reboot kept a very serious tone despite the low-budget origins of the original series.... 

Trailer Park: Lockout

Trailer Park: Lockout
I’ve finally made it to the theater – twice in the past 24 hours, in fact. Both times I’ve been sitting there in the darkened theater, I’ve watched the trailer for Lockout unfold before me, which I took as a sign that I needed to write about the upcoming film, even if the trailer has been out for a while. The basic vibe of the trailer borrows heavily from Escape from New York / Escape from... 

Trailer Park: The Avengers [Trailer 2]

Trailer Park: The Avengers [Trailer 2]
The Earth’s Mightiest Defenders are certainly heading into theaters this summer. If there was any doubt, look no further than the second trailer for this summer’s potential blockbuster, The Avengers. Where the first trailer wowed audiences and fans with the execution of a collaborative movie (and let’s be honest – this is so star packed it’s almost hard to believe they’re pulling it... 

Trailer Park: The Amazing Spider-Man

Trailer Park: The Amazing Spider-Man
Spider-Man returns to the big screen this May sans Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire. Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) guides the wall-crawler on a new set of adventures with Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man. With their February 5th “The Untold Story Begin Here” promotional marketing campaign, Sony and Webb have revealed their latest trailer for this summer’s highly anticipated... 

Trailer Park: Silent House

Trailer Park: Silent House
I wonder how many people are kicking themselves right about now? After years of slavish-devotion to the franchise that surrounded Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and the disturbing countdowns to them becoming legal, it turns out younger sister Elizabeth Olsen may turn out with the career worth watching. Last year she was constantly surrounded by buzz thanks to the independent Martha Marcy May Marlene and... 

Trailer Park: Prometheus

Trailer Park: Prometheus
Ridley Scott may have been playing coy with fans and his new science-fiction film, but the ruse is up. For months Scott has evaded questions about whether Prometheus was related to his iconic 1979 science-fiction entry. As pictures have come out, fans have devoted themselves to the idea that this is a sequel or prequel to Scott’s own Alien. Now the first trailer is out for Prometheus and it’s pretty... 

Trailer Park: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Trailer Park: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
It’s been a long, challenging road for The Hobbit. It’s endured lawsuits, studio bankruptcy, and even a change in directors. At times, it didn’t even look like the prequel to the popular Lord of the Rings movies was ever going to be made. On one hand, there were people who were happy with that outlook, feeling like the existing trilogy was so perfect that it was best to leave well enough alone....
