Thoughts on Trailers

So, when I went to see Holmes today, I saw a couple of trailers.

Clash of the Titans - It's a remake of the classic Greek mythological monster fest, done up in beautiful CG with all kinds of star power. I'm actually surprised it's taken this long for someone to make another movie in the setting of Greek mythology, did Kevin Sorbo really do that much damage to it's rep, that it's taken until now for anyone to think it's a valid investment to make a movie there? Personally, I think it looks great, but I'm a sucker for anything with Titans or Olympus.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice - Okay, Nic Cage needs money, we all know this, there was a time when he was the kind of star that would draw people into seeing movies. Now, I see that Cage is in a movie, and I say "I'll wait for the DVD". That being said, I'm willing to give anything with fire throwing wizards a chance, and there seems to be a lot of that in this one.

Cop Out - Bruce Willis is... pretty much Bruce Willis, and Tracey Morgan is his clueless wisecracking partner. The entire time of watching the trailer I simply thought, "why is Bruce Willis in this?" His career's not in a lull, he isn't having any financial troubles that I'm aware of, nothing about this movie seems at all noteworthy, should Bruce be firing his agent?

  1. So "Cop Out" is the new Kevin Smith movie....

    Hmm. Kevin Smith still needs to win my affection back.

    I think he's just always wanted to direct Bruce Willis in a buddy cop movie. I read it in the new Playboy... Or Maxim... Or Bizzare... I can't remember which one.
