Trailer Post: Wolverine

The final trailer for the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie was released recently - it aired before The Day the Earth Stood Still in the USA - and it looks better than the previous one, so it made its way into my privileged Trailer Post section.

(Actually it's not that privileged, now that I think about it. I keep posting trailers of that turd fest know as Dragonball Evolution.) But I digress. Here goes Wolverine:


Although my excitement level for Watchmen is pretty much overshadowing my anticipation for any other 2009 movie, I'm pretty curious to see this Wolverine movie. Wolverine was always my favorite out of the X-Men Universe, and I'm glad he's the first to get his spin off. Besides, we finally get a look at Gambit, who I think always deserved a place in the movies - I'm not that satisfied with his characterization, but at least they didn't butcher him into oblivion, like they do in other movies *cough*dragonball*cough* - and plenty more characters, like Sabretooth, Deadpool and Blob.
All in all, I definitely want to see this. I just hope it's not a total cheesefest.

Trailer Post: Dragonball Evolution and Terminator Salvation

Two more trailers for you today.

First we have Dragonball Evolution (yeah, apparently it's how its called now).

The good news about this is that Piccolo looks a little more green, at least from a certain angle. The bad news is that pretty much everything else is still shit. It looks slightly better than the previous trailer, but that's like saying a piece of crap with a cherry on top looks better than a piece of crap by itself. I think I'm desensitized enough that this new trailer didn't make me want to stab my eyes with a fork, but that doesn't mean it didn't make me suffer on the inside. Oh well.

Next up, Terminator Salvation.

Rise of the Machines was a weak movie in my opinion, and I don't think it fits very well in the franchise, but I hope this 4th sequel proves superior and refreshes the Terminator universe. The trailer looks good, other than that I don't know what much to say... certainly didn't blow me away, but I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt. More than that actually, because it stars Christian Bale, and I'm confident he'll do a great job as John Connor. So even if the movie is not all that, I'm sure it'll have at least ONE good performance.

What other trailers have you been watching?
