HBO has released the first full length trailer for season four of their hit TV show, Game of Thrones.  The trailer was shown right before the premiere of the premium movie channel’s next big hit, True Detective.

Season four looks proper mental.  Totes obvi.  Duh.

Game of Thrones is back in March on HBO, Sunday’s at 9pm.

 

Darren Aronofosky’s end-of-times Biblical adventure film Noah has received the its first full trailer and judging by the looks of things, it will be this generation’s Passion of the Christ.  It’s not going to be the bloody affair that Mel Gibson’s epic was, but it looks like it’s going to at least be pretty accurate.

Starring Russell Crowe as Noah, Aronofsky will look to establish his film version of the Great Flood.  The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone.

The film is out in March 2014.

 

 

As far as action films go, you probably couldn’t find a better one than 2011’s The Raid.  A surprising Indonesian extreme-action flick, director Gareth Evans – a pretty fantastic foreign action man – brought the goods as his action film became a cult classic. 

Evans is back with the sequel, The Raid 2: Berandal, which takes the focus of the first film but expands the scope.  The sequel will follow the first film’s main character – Rama (Iko Uwais) – as he goes undercover to infiltrate the Jakarta crime syndicate.  He has to go deep to protect his family and expose the corruption within his own police department.   The sequel looks every bit as crazy, fast paced, gory action that the first film was, which is a great thing.

The Raid 2 was recently picked up by Sony Pictures Classics for a 2014 release in the U.S.

Fox released the first trailer for their much hyped and anticipated trailer to the X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past, yesterday.  While the trailer doesn’t show much action or special effects (probably because the effects have not been finalized yet) the trailer opts to play on the dramatic flare.

The trailer focuses on old Professor Charles Xavier – Sir Patrick Stewart – and old Magneto – Sir Ian McKellen – enlisting older Wolverine to go back in time to convince young Charles Xavier that fighting for mutant rights is the right way to go.

We don’t see much of Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) or any Sentinels, but we see much of the old gang and some new characters making their debut.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is out in May 2014.

Marvel released the debut trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier today to much anticipation.  The trailer, which showcases all sorts of action, features a heavy dose Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson as well as Chris Evans, however we don’t get the opportunity to see much of Anthony Mackie’s character The Falcon – which is disappointing.

We also get a glimpse at The Winter Soldier, who is the film’s main nemesis – which is exciting.

The movie is out in April 2014.

The first teaser trailer for next summer’s blockbuster destruction flick, Godzilla, has been leaked – Warner Bros. does have plans to officially release the trailer at some point today though.

The teaser showcases a lot of smashed buildings and trains and destruction as a whole while the voice of Robert Oppenheimer plays over the footage.  Oppenheimer was the leader of the Manhattan Project and one of the main inventors of the atomic bomb.  Here’s the quote in full:

We knew the world would not be the same. Few people laughed, few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston.  It’s out next summer.

The Oscar field will be loaded when February 2014 rolls around and one of the most anticipated films of the year is Bennett Miller’s upcoming drama Foxcatcher.

The film’s first teaser trailer showcases a very creepy Steve Carrell as wrestling coach John du Pont and his obsessive quest to make wrestler Mark Schultz the greatest ever.   The trailer really takes a grizzly tone and showcases Steve Carrell in a way you’ve never seen before.  The talk of Carrell getting an Oscar nomination were not understated as he looks poised to throw himself into that realm of comedic actors turned Oscar-caliber.

Foxcatcher is out on December 20.
