Prequel Sequel Trailer: Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

Two years ago, Netflix took us back to the first day  the campers at Camp Firewood met in Wet Hot American Summer: The First Day. At the end of the series, Ben (Bradley Cooper) said, ‘Hey! Let’s all promise that in ten years from today, we’ll meet again and we’ll see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into.’

Although we see Ben say that in the trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, come the reunion, he’s a no-show – but almost everyone else is back; along with a host of newbies.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later premieres on August 4th.

Wonder Woman Is a Wonder? Too Easy, But Accurate!

How long has it been since we’ve seen a brilliant, completely unironic superhero movie? 2011’s Captain America: First Avenger. Before that? Probably Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978)/Richard Lester & Donner’s Superman II (1980).

To that remarkable (and remarkably short) list we can add Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.

Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Wonder Woman and it’s chock full of new footage – more battles, a few more quips and a sense of just how epic the film is intended to be.

Additionally, the trailer includes a good deal more of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor – showing that he’s more than just a DID (Dude in Distress). This is a guy who may not have superpowers, but is every bit as brave as Diana, Princess of Themyscira – and very good at his job.

Wonder Woman opens on June 2nd.

Hell or High Water: The Old and New Wests Collide!

HellOrHighWaterRobbery_0

Hell or High Water is a simple story with a lot of layers – it’s about brothers who are robbing branches of the bank that’s about to foreclose on their family’s ranch in order to pay the bank off. It’s about a Texas Ranger on the brink of retirement who gets one last big case. It’s about the old and the new – and how no matter how much things change, they always remain the same.

It’s also one of the best films of the year.

Contextual Trailer: Star Trek Beyond!

Remember the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond? The one that was a whirlwind of action with only pauses for a couple pithy remarks?  Remember how a lot of Trekkers complained that it looked like Beyond was going to be Fast and Furious in space?

The new trailer puts all that action into context – with Captain James T. Kirk facing a bit of an existential crisis, and a brief flurry of Spock/Bones debate. It’s as if Paramount Pictures was aware of how fans would react to the first trailer thus setting up this more typically Trek trailer.

This is a superb second trailer. Check it out after the break. Star Trek Beyond opens on July 22nd.

Presented in Digital 3D (TM) and IMAX (c) 3D, Disney's THE FINEST HOURS is a heroic action-thriller based on the extraordinary true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the Coast Guard.
Presented in Digital 3D (TM) and IMAX (c) 3D, Disney’s THE FINEST HOURS is a heroic action-thriller based on the extraordinary true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the Coast Guard.

Disney’s The Finest Hours is based on a book about the greatest small boat rescue in the history of the Coast Guard.

Bernie Webber and his crew (four, counting him) rescued thirty-two sailors from the aft half of the Pendleton, a tanker sheared in half by a blizzard in February of 1952. The film, which features Chris Pine as Webber, is a very basic story with a little character development and some impressive effects work – but make no mistake, the storm and the rescue are the film’s stars.
