Fury trailer

If this first official trailer is anything to go by, Brad Pitt’s newest movie Fury certainly looks the real deal.

Set in Germany during the Second World War, there is a definite flavour of Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers about it, which can only be a good thing.

Directed by David Ayer (of Street Kings and End of Watch fame), it stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman. It has a UK release date of 24th October 2014.

Have a look at the excellent trailer here…

New trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Can you believe the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie came out way back in 1990? No, me neither. That’s 24 years ago! Wow, now I do feel old.

Star Wars gets a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer

There’s no doubt that the trailers for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy have really sparked the imagination of the movie-going public. Or at least the imagination of us fan-boys anyway!

Official Trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The first movie was a cracker, and the follow-up promises to be even better, if this trailer is anything to go by.

Man of Steel Official Trailer

For many of us who've grown up with the Man of Steel on our big screens the character of Superman is an icon, from the very first time Christopher Reeve donned the famous blue and red pajamas back in 1978.

Superman is arguably the most iconic superhero there is, perhaps even more so than Batman or Spiderman. I've never been his biggest fan personally, but I'm getting excited about this one.

After a miserable attempt in 2006 by Bryan Singer to bring the franchise back with a “sort-of-sequel” (no offence Bryan, love you work normally, but…), we now get Zack Snyder (he of 300 and Watchmen fame) bringing a reboot in 2013.

With the soon to be huge Henry Cavill taking the lead, and a much “grittier” style (a la The Dark Knight of course), this promises to be huge….

two new trailers have been released. Well, it's the same trailer with two different voiceovers – the first with Russell Crowe narrating as Jor-El, and the second with Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent…

Man of Steel has a release date of the 13th June 2013 in Australia, and a release date of the 14th June for the US and UK. No release date is yet available for Canada.

 

The Man with the Iron Fists

There's lots I like about this movie already. It has Quentin Tarantino's name attached to it, it's the directorial debut of RZA, and was co-written by RZA and Eli Roth.

It has a fabulous poster…

And of course, a fascinating cast which includes Russel Crowe, Lucy Liu, RZA, Cung Le and Jamie Chung.

And then there is this amazing trailer. Just watch, and tell me you don't want to go out and see this…

 

New trailer and release dates for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

With the latest trailer just released for Timur Bekmambetov’s (Wanted, Night Watch) upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, I’m starting to get excited about this one.

Adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith’s best-selling novel, and starring Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter tells the story of the secret life of the 16th President of the United States of America.

Sound bizarre? Then try Grahame-Smith’s other best-seller, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! For what it’s worth, this one is due for release as a movie in 2013.

Check out the trailer here…

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has a release date of the 20th June 2012 for the UK and Ireland, 22nd June 2012 for Canada and the US, and 2nd August for Australia.

Skyfall trailer and release dates

We’re still five months out from Bond 23 and the first teaser trailer is already upon us.

The great news is, the trailer doesn’t disappoint. In fact it’s a cracker, and it looks like it’ll put Bond back on top after the stumble (in my opinion) that was Quantum of Solace.

With The Bourne Legacy on the way, this latest Bond needs to be on top of his game, and I’m impressed enough by the trailer to be reassured.

We see plenty of Daniel Craig as Bond of course, plus glimpses of Judi Dench as M and Ralph Fiennes as what looks like a British Government official. There’s also a shaggy-haired figure silhouetted against flames who must surely be Javier Bardem.

Excited? Check out the trailer.

Skyfall has a typically early release date for the UK (they always get Bond movies first, of course) of the 26th October 2012, whilst Canada and the US have a release date of the 9th November 2012. Australia lags behind with a 22nd November 2012 release date.

The Expendables 2, trailer and release dates

If ever a movie epitomised what The All Action No Plot Movie Blog stood for, then 2010’s The Expendables was that movie!

Well, now it’s back, with the appropriately named The Expendables 2. Even the title harks back to those action flicks of the 80’s and 90’s.

Apart from the mindless action, gunfights and explosions the one thing that made the original stand out from the crowd was it’s cast. Well, believe it or not they’ve just made the cast list for the sequel even better…

The closing credits in the trailer say it all. “Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Norris, Crews, Couture, Hemsworth”. Then the next page continues with “also Van Damme, with Willis and Schwarzenegger”.

Yep, you did read that alright. And yes, that is Norris as in Chuck Norris.

Check out the scene with Schwarzenegger and Willis in the Smart car. Classic!

The Expendables 2 has a release date of the 17th August 2012 for Canada, the US and the UK, and a release date of the 30th August 2012 for Australia.

The Amazing Spiderman, new trailer and release dates

I must confess, I’m still not completely sold on the new Spiderman ‘re-boot’.

Like a lot of you out there I was initially confused as to why the series needed a reboot in the first place. To be honest I’m still a bit confused. And the previous trailer didn’t convince me.

Enter the latest trailer. To be fair, this one impresses me more. If only for lots of scenes with Rhys Ifans as The Lizard. Still not sold on Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, but I think Ifans can possibly lift the movie.

Am I being a bit harsh? Any Spidey fans out there? Tell me what you think…

The Amazing Spiderman has a release date of 3rd July 2012 for Canada and the US, and a release date of the 4th July 2012 for the UK and Australia.
