The Internship

(Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson)

The Internship

+ Return of Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson
+ Two older guys competing with younger crowd for a shot at working for Google
– Could be as promising as Wedding Crashers but PG-13 rating limits antics


The Purge

(Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey)

Covered in last month’s preview. Got delayed by a week but still looks great.

Man of Steel

(Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner)


+ With Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) directing, Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy) producing. Snyder’s visual style and Nolan’s more serious, real-world treatment look like a great combination for Superman’s reboot
+ A retelling of the origin story
– Pressure is on; possible success or failure could affect DC and Warner Bros’ hopes for a Justice League movie and more DC characters to hit the big screen

This Is The End

(Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Paul Rudd)

+ All-star comedic cast playing themselves
+ World is ending and these actors/comedians are partying at Franco’s house
+ Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Emma Watson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kevin Hart, Michael Cera and Aziz Ansari making cameos; And that’s just the trailer!

World War Z

(Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos)

+ Originally sold as adaptation of Max Brook’s novel
+ Zombie products aren’t slowing down anytime soon
– Brooks has said the only thing this has in common with his book is the title;
– Die-hard book fans may pick this one apart;

Monsters University

(The voices of John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Nathan Fillion, Steve Buscemi)


+ Pixar’s first prequel follows Mike and Sully in college;
+ Revisiting some great characters (NOT Cars)
+ Could be an animated Animal House
– Hoping to get some Pixar magic back;
Brave was ok but Toy Story 3 was last Pixar project that got audiences really excited

The Heat

(Melissa McCarthy, Sandra Bullock)

The Heat 1

+ Paul Feig directing (Bridesmaids; The Office, Weeds, Arrested Development)
– Melissa McCarthy hasn’t captured comedic magic since Bridesmaids;
– Combination of the two could be an ok comedy at best
– Trailers don’t look promising

White House Down

(Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx)

– Remake of the 2013 Gerard Butler movie, Olympus Has Fallen
– Roland Emmerich directing (Independence Day, Day After Tomorrow, 2012); loves disasters and destroying the White House
+ Should be over the top, if you don’t mind watching an attack on the White House with a different cast


(Jason Statham, Lee Asquith-Coe)

+ Jason Statham action/thriller
– Homeless, ex-special forces agent takes on a new identity
– Haven’t seen any publicity. Also, referred to as “Hummingbird”. Might cause confusion.
