Thursday Trailers

Oh, so many movies I’m excited about:

Like look at this freaky Snow White adaptation. Not loving KStew as a Joan of Arc-y Snow White, but Charlize Theron rocks my socks as the evil queen. Plus — wowsa, the imagery!

In this trailer, I’m seeing shades of Dementro’s Kisses AND Elizabeth Bathory (the Blood Queen of Transylvania). Anyone else?

Then, just for balance, we’ve got a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT adaptation of Snow White, the Julia-Roberts-as-queen Mirror Mirror. (In passing, clearly the “queen” is the meaty role in both these films, as This trailer seems bizarre to me, like it was all a bet on Funny or Die or something. Amirite? Like it’s not a real movie? Also, how many shots of a castle balancing precariously on a stick-thin penninsula cliff over a lake can we handle?

This appears to be the year for Snow White remakes.

And, in another vein entirely, the trailer for Pixar’s BRAVE. Yay, warrior girls! However, is it me, or is this trailer completely mum on WHAT, precisely, this darn film is about?

And then, last but certainly not least, the trailer I have watched approximately twenty-bajillion times already this week. How. Awesome. Is. This. Movie. Gonna. Be?

    I felt the same way after watching the BRAVE trailer. So excited, but what is it about??

    I’m not loving KStew for the role of Snow White either. I think the director is hoping to attract Twilight fans. I just don’t think she’s a strong actress and the right choice for the part. She’s the same girl over and over again (biting her lip and fidgeting), just with a different name and look. Anybody else and my answer would be yes, but I’m not sure. Plus so many know actors turned down the part of the main Huntsmen (one being Johnny Deep). That makes me think that the visuals might be great, but the story weak.

    Mirror Mirror doesn’t interest me either for the same reasons as you. It looks like a joke plus I never like the story of Snow White. Just the fact that she took an apple from a stranger knowing somebody wants her dead made me think, you got nobody but yourself to blame even as a kid.

    Brave? Yes! Finally a strong female action animated movie and not a damsel in distress.

    The Hunger Games? Hell yeah 🙂

    My first thought when the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman started was “Is this a movie about Elizabeth Bathory? BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.” and then it was Snow White and that is just fine with me as well, but it’s a safe bet I will be rooting for the evil queen rather than Kristin…

    okay so I’m kind of excited for Snow White and the Huntsman even though all of my friends are saying that Kristen Stewart can only play the victim… It actually looks really good from the previews.

    I’m SUPER excited for the Hunger Games movie because I think the movie will be better than the book because it doesn’t have the awkward writing that I disliked so much. But it does have the concept which I found good… *coughs* Team Gale *coughs*

    And the other one I’m excited for is Brave, it looks very Tamora Pierce-ey. I’m looking forward to that one alot.
