Trailers of the Week: 14/9/14 – 21/9/14

BIG EYES

Featuring a fantastic cast including Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz and Jason Schwartzman, it’s easy to see why Tim Burton’s new film, Big Eyes, is hotly awaited. Whether the true story being displayed on screen is interesting enough to make an engrossing film is up for debate.

POPEYE

More a teaser than a trailer (fine, I cheated), the new Popeye film that won’t appear on screens until 2016 is sumptuously animated. While I’m not a fan of the voice acting (which is subject to change) and the slapstick humour, I’m sure the intended target audience will be kept entertained.

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR

Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the same film? Fantastic. This looks to have the potential of being a dark horse at this year’s Oscar race, and the trailer shows that – it keeps you hooked without giving too much away.

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN

This trailer filled with dialogue is a stark contrast to the teaser for it released last month. Featuring a huge cast with the likes of upcoming star Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, and Adam Sandler in an actually serious role, this looks good. Surprising, then, that it picked up mixed reviews at the TIFF.

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1

The latest trailer, and the first full one, for the third installment of the Hunger Games saga looks suitably epic. Though I wonder, if we take away all the HG and Jennifer Lawrence buzz, would we assign this as ‘yet another YA flick’ like we’re doing with The Maze Runner?
