Welcome To The Punch Trailer

Pushing the fact that Ridley "Prometheus" Scott is the executive producer on this, we get to see the first trailer for Welcome To The Punch.

Former criminal Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong) is forced to return to London from his Icelandic hideaway when his son is involved in a heist gone wrong. This gives detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy) one last chance to catch the man he has always been after. As they face off, they start to uncover a deeper conspiracy they both need to solve in order to survive.

Good to see David Morrissey, the Governor from TV's The Walking Dead, getting into more prominent films.

Looks like plenty of bullets and slow motion. Will it be any good though?

Pacific Rim Trailer

Guillermo Del Toro gives us the first footage of of his kaiju giant monster movie.

In Pacific Rim, an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence. Giant robots, piloted by humans, are deployed to fight off the menace.

Some people are saying it looks like Battleship meets Real Steel, let's just hope it's better than both of those. With Del Toro at the helm, I don't think we need to worry. What do you think?

Weekly Movie Review: Premium Rush, Savages, Brake, Bourne Legacy, Arthur Christmas

Premium Rush

In Manhattan, a bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) picks up an envelope that attracts the interest of a dirty cop (Michael Shannon), who pursues the cyclist throughout the city.

The Lone Ranger Trailer 2

Gore Verbinski's movie version of the old TV show, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, shows more of its cards with this new trailer, showing off some of the humour and action.

Looks like there is going to be a lot of CGI... a cowboy version of Pirates of the Caribbean

Man Of Steel Trailer 2

We get to see more of Zach Snyder's vision of a Superman movie in this second trailer for Man of Steel.

The action picks up about 2/3's of the way through the trailer, with what appears to be an alien ship and some dodgy fire effects of Supes on fire. Hmmm...

In Oblivion, a court martial sends a veteran soldier (Cruise) to a distant planet, where he has to destroy the remains of an alien race. The arrival of an unexpected traveler causes him to question what he knows about the planet, his mission, and himself.

Looks like Oblivion could be a action packed film. It's due out in UK cinemas with a release date of 12 April 2013.
