Thursday Trailer Shootout! – Spider-Man, Mansome, Samsara, Lawless, Moonrise Kingdom, El Gringo

Thursday Trailer Shootout! is my bi-weekly segment where I post a handful of trailers that I might have missed but have an interest in, whether for good……or evil!
Note: It’s a heavy page worth every minute you spend on it, please be patient while it loads


FIRST UP! The latest trailer from the Spiderman reboot starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is a doozy. This movie looks better with each trailer. I wasn't excited to hear about the fact that Columbia Pictures had decided to reboot a franchise that wasn't very old to begin with, but now I think it's a must see.

Mansome, the latest from Morgan Spurlock, the Oscar Nominated director who ate a shitload of McDonalds in Super Size Me. Will Arnett and Jason Bateman of Arrested Development are serving as executive producers. The premise is as simple, as different celebrities and.....non-celebrities are asked: What Makes A Man?

Samsara is the latest non-narrative film from Ron Fricke and has been described as a sequel or continuation of a movie he made in 1992 called Baraka, which I haven't seen but have heard it is visually incredible.

Shia La Beouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain and Guy Pearce star in Lawless, which deals three brothers and their bootlegging business during Prohibition in Franklin County, Virginia. This movie is swimming in cool, if you look at the fact that the screenplay was written by Nick Cave, frontman of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (based on the book The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant) . The director is John Hillcoat, who's only movie I've seen is 2009's The Road starring Viggo Mortensen, which was awesome.

I don't really care whether or not you enjoy the films of Wes Anderson because I love them. His latest is Moonrise Kingdom. And heres a clip which has Frances McDormand finding a letter which says her daughter ran away, so naturally she addresses her husband, played by The King himself, Bill Murray, via bullhorn.

El Gringo is a violent action movie from After Dark Films, which looks to be in the Mexican Western/Robert Rodriguez mold. The only actor I recognize is Christian Slater.
