Weekly Trailer Watch
Despite the fact that it's almost Christmas, it hasn't stopped studios from trying to get you to think about next summer's blockbusters. We've taken a look at some of the most noteworthy trailers to have hit the web recently.
You'll shortly be able to see Tom Cruise in 'Jack Reacher' but keep an eye out for him in next year's 'Oblivion' too. Here Tom play another Jack, this time Jack Harper who is one of the last drone repairmen on the planet. 'Oblivion' shows an Earth that has evolved beyond all recognition; the planet was attacked and despite Earth winning the war, everybody has been evacuated. The situation is disturbed in this post-apocalyptic thriller when Jack rescues a stranger from a spacecraft; this sets off a series of events that sees Jack question everything he believes in and has the fate of humanity resting on his shoulders.
If ever there was a director that needed a career boost it's M. Night Shyamalan; once the toast of tinsel-town, the director of 'The Sixth Sense' saw his last film, 'The Last Airbender,' flop at the box-office and it was universally hated by critics. Time to move on then; 'After Earth' is another post apocalyptic thriller and it stars Will and Jaden Smith. After a crash landing, the father and son have to explore a planet that was evacuated by humans over 1000 years ago. The planet in question turns out to be Earth and is full of creatures that have evolved to specifically kill humans - not the most ideal place to crash land then.
This is 40
This sort of sequel to 'Knocked Up' is the latest offering from comedy director and producer extraordinaire Judd Apatow. The movie showcases the life of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann,) as they struggle through family life and enter middle age. Teenage tantrums, arguments and general family life may not seem like the recipe for comedy but if anyone can pull it off it's Apatow. This is 40 will be arriving on Valentine's Day next year.
