I felt like doing this, because I am so curious to see the trailers of some movies which will air this year. I will post the ones which I would really like to see in 2014. Here we go.
– 7th: The Lego Movie
Director: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller
Cast: Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks
OMG! I totally have to watch this! I loved Lego as a kid, and I still think it is a great toy. There is even Legoland here in Germany which is utterly amazing. This movie is maybe rather for kids, but I love those. And I really like about it, that it mocks our world because we buy expensive coffee from Starbucks, and think it’s cool, or the fact that the most Über-superhero Batman is being mocked :’D I want to watch this movie. Definitely!
– 7th: Monuments Men
Director: George Clooney
Cast: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray
Genre: Action, Biography
This movie sounds interesting, since it is another kind of war movie. They want to save important monuments from the explosives of the nazis. Sounds amusing and very clever to me :) Double plus: Actors like George Clooney, Matt Damon, or Cate Blanchett.
– 14th: Vampire Academy
Director: Mark Waters
Cast: Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry
I am not quite sure what to think of this movie. On the one hand I think:”Oh no, not another vampire novel adaption again”, but on the other hand this one seems a bit different from the whole vampire franchise like twilight or vampire diaries. It seems cheeky, and self-ironic. AND it is from the makers of Mean Girls which really is a clever teenie movie :’D maybe I will watch this. I’ll see.
– 7th The Grand Budapest Hotel:
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton,…
I am overwhelmed right now by the great selection of superb actors for this movie! I haven’t quite figured out what this is about, but it definitely looks so interesting, and I think it has a great humour. No doubt with first class actors like Bill Murray or Harvey Keitel :)
– 14th: Need for Speed
Director: Scott Waugh
Cast: Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper
Hmm, probably I will watch this movie some time, when I feel like watching an action movie with a lot of explosions and stuff like that. And I think it’s quite interesting seeing the Breaking Bad Co-star Aaron Paul in a Fast and the Furious rip-off.
– 28th: Noah
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Cast: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson
Well, it’s an Arronofsky Movie, starring Emma Watson. Of course I am going to watch it, even if the topic of the movie doesn’t appeal to me that much.
– 4th: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Cast: Chris Evans, Frank Grillo
Genre: Action, Science-Fiction, Adventure
Yes, I know, I also have a little bit enough of all that Superhero movies, but you just can’t resist them, especially when you have such great actors, like Scarlett Johansson, or Samuel L. Jackson (Chris Evans is rather unimportant). Fact is, I still have to watch the first Captain America :)
– 11th: Rio2
Director: Carlos Saldanha
Cast: Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg
I also have to admit that I didn’t watch the first movie, yet, but the last part of the trailer convinced me: I have to watch them both :’D it looks so cute and funny! I just literally had to laugh out loud :’D
– 18th: Transcendence
Director: Wally Pfister
Cast: Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman
Genre: Action, Science-Fictiom
Well, I am not quite sure what to think of this film, but I will definitely watch it because of my favorite actor Johnny Depp, and Morgan Freeman. And, Christopher Nolan produced it. I am not quite sure what this movie is about, but the past seconds of the trailer hugely remind me of The Matrix. I am also not quite sure what to expect from Johnny Depp in a typical Hollywood Science-Fiction Movie, since this is not typically his genre. I think I wouldn’t urgently want to watch this movie, if it wasn’t for Johnny, and I dont think that this will be my favorite movie of him. But still, wondering about this movie.
– 2nd: The Amazing Spiderman 2
Director: Marc Webb
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx
Genre: Action, Adventure
Obviously, Andrew Garfield is the more handsome Spiderman. And Emma Stone the more attractive girlfriend. But I will still fancy the Spiderman movies with Tobey Maguire, because they were so beautiful, and dreamful. I loved them. After watching them, I never liked any superhero better than Spiderman, not even Christpher Nolan’s Batmans which are overrated anyway, because the older movies are onehundredandthousand times better. But back to the topic, I still want to watch this movie, because of the 2 cuties, and because it is closer to the comics, at least that’s what I’ve heard…
– 9th: Neighbors
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Cast: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron
For the first time ever, Zac Efron really fits into his role, namely that of a douchebag :’D but nevertheless, I still want to watch this movie, because of Seth Rogen. And it actually seems to be a very funny one
– 16th: Godzilla
Director: Gareth Edwards
Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
The last Godzilla movie I watched, it was the newest one, was horribly boring. It once came on TV and I watched it with my father, but almost slept in which is very unfortunate, because the movie, as I remember it from my childhood was not bad at all, although the technology of today is way better. But I have to say that this trailer looks very good. With Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who looks like the handsome version of Daniel Radcliffe, I hope it will be a treat for the eyes.
– 23rd: X-Men – Days of Future Past
Director: Bryan Singer
Cast: Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence
Genre: Action, Fantasy
The cast speaks volumes: Next to the old hands like Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry or Ian McKellen, we’ll see many new stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender. Definitely worth a watch, and probably one of the more interesting Marvel movies this year. But once again, I have to admit that I haven’t watched any X-Men movie, except for the first Wolverine. I definitely have to make good for that.
– 30th: Maleficient
Director: Robert Stromberg
Cast: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning
This. Movie. This will definitely be a movie to watch at the cinema. The cast is wonderful, the soundtrack is magical (Lana Del Rey!!!), and the story is one of the best fairytales. I can’t wait for this movie!
– 30th: Million Ways to die in the West
Director: Seth MacFarlane
Cast: Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris,…
The only reason I would watch this movie is because of the cast, mainly because of Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman, and Liam Neeson. I also like it that it is a comedy western, but I didn’t laugh once during this trailer. I am not sure if something is wrong with me, but I couldn’t chum up with Ted neither. I think I can only understand MacFarlane’s humour if it is in a cartoon :’D
– 6th: The Fault in Our Stars
Director: Josh Boone
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort
To be honest, I am not a fan of love movies, at least not the typical ones. But this trailer just made my eyes wet. But before watching this film, I will have to read the book by John Green. I wanted to read it since weeks now, because it was being recommended in so many blogs and forums. And after watching this trailer, I think that it deserves all that hype. It might seem to have a usual topic, but it is set in a problematic background. It is simple, yet touching, at least that’s what I guess. And I am looking forward for it.
– 13th: 22 Jump Street
Director: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller
Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube
Genre: Comedy, Action
Now, THIS is what I call a funny comedy movie :’D alright, it seems like another movie about american college partys, but I love Jonah Hill’s movies, because they automatically are funny :’D he doesn’t even have to say something xD and Channing Tatum is like the whole opposite of him, but he still looks so funny in this movie. I think it’s Hill’s humoristic charisma: anyone close to him will get automatically funny as well :’D Well, the first movie was already funny. And another commitment: I haven’t watched the original 21 Jump Street starring Johnny Depp. Well alright, it was a series, a TV series I think, but still a vacancy in my brain. It seems like this postnis full of commitments :’D
Movie I will definitely NOT watch:
– 27th: Transformers – Age of Extinction
Director: Michael Bay
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
The last two Transformers were really shitty. And after watching this trailer I am sure it won’t get any better. Did Michael Bay really think his movie would get any better when exchanging Shia with Mark Wahlberg? I dislike Wahlberg and his movies, and that’s another reason why I won’t watch this movie. Oh, and did I say that I’ve got enough of movies which deal with a higher power, probably alien which tries to destroy the world, and build in as many destruction scenes as possible. They are yo boring. I already had enough in Man of Steel. Hollywood, you have to come up with something different, really!
So, that was the first part of the view on the up opcoming movies in 2014. To be continued…
