I already told you about a lot of the movies I've seen this year, but when I was watching Tomorrowland, there were so many trailers for more movies I want to see! Some look amazing and I know I'm going to love them. Others have piqued my curiosity enough to want to try to see them if I can.
Click the movie title to see the trailer.
Aloha – Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone
I couldn't decide if it was the Emma Stone storyline or the Rachel McAdams storyline that made me want to see this movie more. But I decided to use some of my birthday gift-cards-for-chick-flicks to see it. It was definitely a Cameron Crowe film – his stories have a unique touch all his – so it wasn't really a romantic comedy. But I enjoyed it. Good story, great acting.
Poltergeist – Sam Rockwell
I'll just start by saying, John will see anything with Sam Rockwell in it, and I'm right there with him. We had to see this movie. Unfortunately, we got busy with a bunch of things when it came out and when we finally had a minute to see it, it was out of the theaters. We'll either catch it at the discount cinemas, or at Redbox. Bummer. I would've loved to get scared in the movie theater!
Entourage – based on the HBO TV series
I love Jeremy Piven. That's part of why I let John convince me to watch the TV show with him years ago. But then all the other characters were so weird and funny and interesting that I just kept watching. Since we watched the entire six seasons of the show, how could we not want to see the movie? Again, it was playing for a few weeks, we were busy, we finally decided to see it the next Saturday, and it was already gone. Argh! So…we'll have to see it at the discount cinema or via Redbox.
Jurassic World – Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard
I've been dying to see this since the first trailer!! Luckily, the timing was right and we saw it opening weekend. Awesome!! If you liked the first Jurassic Park, I think you'll like this one. I heard it was written as if it were a sequel to that one. (I wanted to watch Jurassic Park again before seeing Jurassic World, but I couldn't find it for rent.) Seriously, if you haven't seen this yet, see it! (And if you're not interested in dinosaurs, but you loved Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy, see it!)
Inside Out – a Pixar film – need I say more? 😉
Another trailer that has me laughing every time I see it! There's always a little fear that I'm going to expect more from a movie than it can give due to an excellent trailer, so I tried to keep my expectations moderate. But when we saw it, we both laughed out loud a lot. It was just plain lots of fun! Of course, for me in particular, I've found the concept funny from the beginning because it's like my book, Little Miss Lovesick, with all those voices that are given their own names! Hahaha!!
Max – Thomas Haden Church
I'd never heard of this film, but the trailer played before Tomorrowland and it looked really heartwarming – and heart-wrenching. It's about a dog who worked with a Marine and the Marine died. And then…well, watch the trailer. It looks great, doesn't it? Much as I'd love to see this in the theater, I can't go to the movies all the time, right? Haha! So I'll probably have to rent it sometime. Alone. Because I'm sure it will make me cry. 😉
Terminator Genisys – Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke
I loved Terminator 1 and 2. I had mixed feelings about the others, but I like the idea so I watched all of them in the theater. This one looks especially good! Here's hoping! Because I am definitely going to see this one. I just have to find the time!!
Minions – so many great actors doing voices in this one!
All I can say is – watch the trailer! This is going to be one funny film. I can't wait! And since it's a prequel, we can then all go home and watch Despicable Me 1 and 2! (Again with trying to think of what day we can go. We need a weekend to just camp out at the theater!)
Ant-Man – opens tomorrow!!!! Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas
I've been waiting months for this movie to come out! I only know a little about Ant-Man from reading The Ultimates, but Paul Rudd plays him in a way that is entertaining to me at least. Looks like another Marvel success! I can't wait!
I'll post another summer movie list with more these-look-awesome films for your consideration. Until then, enjoy all the great flicks! 😀
