This is just a thread for posting and discussing new movie trailers that probably wouldn't get enough discussion to merit their own threads.

Here's the trailer for Olympus Has Fallen, the new movie from Antoine Fuqua.

I keep meaning to see his acclaimed Training Day, but since I've never really been a fan of cop movies I haven't gotten to it. All I've seen of his is the lamentable King Arthur. And honestly this looks more than anything like a remake of Die Hard, starring a typically miscast Gerard Butler (who, despite his physique, is not usually very good as an action star) in the Bruce Willis role. But it'll be interesting to see how it performs compared to Roland Emmerich's similarly-themed White House Down coming a few weeks later.

Score by Trevor Morris.

The new Coen Brothers movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, which looks to be a return to their more offbeat side. I don't even know what to say at this point, but I'm always very curious to see what they do next:

The new Jeff Nichols movie, after Shotgun Stories and Take Shelter. Mud stars Nichols regular Michael Shannon and Matthew McConaughey, whose career has definitely taken a turn for the better and more interesting since 2010.

How to Survive a Plague is a new documentary from David France that I've heard good things about. Looking forward to the opportunity to watch it.

Spring Breakers, the new film from Megan Ellison's Annapurna productions, which looks truly awful and certainly seems very different from most of the rest of Ellison's productions. Directed by Harmony Korine, with whose work I am unfamiliar. What is James Franco doing here?

Upstream Color, Shane Carruth's long-awaited follow-up to Primer, which came out nearly a decade ago. Optimistic about this one.

Restless, a miniseries that debuted in December based on the novel by William Boyd. Directed by Edward Hall, and starring Hayley Atwell (who also starred in the superior William Boyd miniseries adaptation of Any Human Heart a couple years ago) and Rufus Sewell. I'd really like to see this.

Sightseers, the new black comedy from up-and-comer Ben Wheatley, whose first couple films, Down Terrace and Kill List, were both very impressive.

Thanks, mastadge, for posting these trailers!
I LOVE to watch trailers!
These films look very interesting. I really like the idea of having a "trailer park" here at the board, and if you and others continue to post trailers here, I will return regularly.
My very favorite trailer from last year, was the long (over 5 minutes) one for Cloud Atlas.

Olympus Has Fallen- I find this film very disturbing after 9/11. Aliens blowing up the White House is one thing but this?

Spring Breakers- Really wanted to see Selena Gomez in a grown up role. But this looks pretty trashy. Oh well.

You're very welcome. I also love trailers, and I'll try to remember to post interesting ones as I come across them.

Moving on, another miniseries I've been looking forward to: Labyrinth, based on the novel by Kate Mosse. The trailer is underwhelming, but director Christopher Smith has shown himself time and again to be dependable so I'll give the movie a fair shot. Plus the score is by Trevor Jones.

The We and the I, the new film from Michel Gondry. Looks like quite a departure from most of his previous subject matter.

Knights of Badassdom, which we've been discussing here since at least 2010, seems finally to be on its way. Honestly it doesn't look that good, though it may be cute; mostly I'm curious to hear Bear McCreary's score (although I suspect it may be rock-based). I'm also curious to see how it compares to the last LARPing movie I saw, The Wild Hunt.

Exact opposite here. In fact, my New Year's resolution was to never, EVER watch a trailer again until after I've seen the movie in question. Trailers have gotten just too formulaic, too loud (God, how I hate hearing that subwoofer B O O M after every single cut to black in an action or horror trailer mad ), and show too much of the movies in question, pretty much telling you who will die, what the ending will be, and giving away all of the best jokes (which will no longer be funny by the time you see the trailer and TV spots dozens of times before you see the actual movie). When I saw The Last Stand a few days back, I didn't actually go into the theater until 10 minutes past the scheduled showtime, and the "our feature presentation" screen was coming up just as I got to my seat. Awesome. big grin

No offense to this thread or anyone who posts in here...it's a great service to have a thread where trailers can be collected. Still, I'm going to like movies a lot more once I know as little as possible going in. If it's a filmmaker I like, I'll see it, regardless of seeing any footage beforehand. The new Coen movie? I love their films, so I don't need a trailer to get me excited, just a release date.

Great idea Mastage. I've already been checking out the ones you have posted.

At Any Price is the new film from Ramin Bahrani, who is shaping up to be one of the best young American filmmakers. His Goodbye Solo was one of my favorite movies of 2008. This trailer isn't exciting me as much as I thought it would -- for some reason I have more trouble getting into dramas starring movie stars than ones starring unknowns. But I'll definitely be giving Bahrani the benefit of the doubt.

And the new Wong Kar Wai movie, The Grandmaster, another account of Ip Man, the Chinese martial artist who would train Bruce Lee. I'm including two versions of the trailer, one in HD but in Chinese, and one at lower resolution but with English subtitles. As with most WKW movies, it looks beautiful. Score by Shigeru Umebayashi.

Upside Down, from "visionary" director Juan Diego Solanas. Looks even more implausible than Another Earth, scientifically. As a fantasy, it may or may not be sufficiently entertaining to be worthwhile. It's also a rare example of a genre film that I didn't even hear of until the trailer popped onto IMDB's front page. Not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing or nothing at all. Score by BenoƮt Charest.

So when did Mark Isham's score to Upside Down get replaced (he was supposed to replace Charset's score and apparently recorded it)?

I don't have any idea. For composer I was just going by IMDB. Maybe Isham has scored it.
