Trailer Tuesday – Blockbuster Edition!

Trailer Tuesday – Blockbuster Edition!

The marketing push for the Summer blockbuster movie season is on! Let’s catch up with some of the latest trailers.

The movie studios are really hoping you’ll flock to the theatres to watch the latest summer blockbusters and hand over your hard earned cash! The marketing campaigns are reaching fever pitch with several big names releasing their last trailers before the movie’s release date. Here’s some of the latest.

Independence Day: Resurgence

It’s taken twenty years but the alien reinforcements have arrived to finish off the job that was started twenty years ago as portrayed in the original Independence Day from 1996.

I am a big fan of the original and it really is one of those huge scale popcorn movies that really don’t require a lot of thought. Seriously, how do you connect an Apple Mac laptop to unknown alien hardware, let alone transmit a virus!

20th Century Fox are really pushing out the boat with this new trailer that runs for almost five minutes. Hopefully, they’ll be some surprises left for the audience to experience when it opens next month.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Paramount Pictures release their final trailer for the sequel to the live action TMNT film from just two years ago. That film was met with decidedly average reviews but as always, made enough money that another was soon shunted into production.

I didn’t like the first film at all but there’s something about this sequel that is ticking all my boxes. This is probably due to the inclusion of classic characters such as Bebop, Rocksteady and Krang that all look fantastic in their live action form…well CGI form…you know what I mean!

Release | US: 3rd June ’16 | UK: 30th May ’16 | World: IMDb




Shortly after releasing the second trailer for this reboot, Sony then pushed out another trailer for the international market and here it is.

The film has already caused a huge amount of negative internet reaction, that has not only been directed at the film’s director, Paul Feig, but also at the female stars as well.

Well, I’m assuming that whoever edited the first trailer has been fired! The second trailer was much better and this third international variant is even better again. Originally I was very anti-reboot but these new trailers are starting to win me over.
