Mockingjay Teaser Trailer

It looks like the footage first shown this weekend at Comic-Con has now been made public, and we can check out the first teaser trailer for the upcoming Mockinjay movie.

How high up on your must-watch list is this one? My memory on the details are a bit fuzzy, which is great heading into the movie. I might even get surprised a bit.

So, The 50 Shades Thingy Has a Trailer Now…

Yeah. Huh. I have watched this a couple of times, and I still don’t quite know what to think. Check it out…

 

What in the holy hell is she wearing?

 

I admit, I did skim through the books, but I found myself rolling my eyes and snickering quite a bit. It left me with a hazy recollection of the story, enough to know that dude is all Mr. Controlling, and that Anastasia (I think that was her name?) is supposed to be innocent and submissive. So, to show how sweet and innocent she is they dress her in clothes her grandmother wouldn’t be caught dead in? Good lord. The trailer made me laugh more than the book did.

The Fault in Our Stars Trailer…

This one is going to be a tear-jerker. The Fault in Our Stars movie won’t be out until June, but the trailer made its way online today, and even as someone who hasn’t read the book, it packs a punch. Now I am caught in the age old situation…read the book before watching the movie, or watch the movie and then read the book?

Is this one you will be watching when it comes out? For those who have read the book already, does this shape up like you were hoping?

Divergent Trailer…

Well, the first official trailer for the adaptation of Divergent just came out. There was a teaser trailer a while back that wasn’t bad, but I was looking forward to a non-rushed version.  I think this one turned out pretty well…

What do you think? Will the rather upsetting ending of Allegiant (I haven’t read it yet, but was accidentally spoiled, dammit) make you feel a bit differently heading into this movie?

Catching Fire Trailer…

I know this has been going around for a while now, but I somehow forgot to post it. The official trailer for Catching Fire is only just over a minute long, but man do they pack a crap load of action in. Waiting anxiously for this one when it is released on November 22nd.

I have been a bit thrown by early material from the Vampire Academy movie, and the blow-back from the release of Allegiant seems to be overshadowing the upcoming Divergent film. It was nice to see this trailer and just be happy with it.

 

First Official Divergent Trailer…

A couple of days ago, the very brief teaser trailer for Divergent made its debut. Well, tonight the full version was released – and it looks good. Really good. Out of all of the recent adaptations, this trailer is among my favorites. Divergent will be released in March.

What do you think? Was it what you were expecting? I like the kind of dark tone this one had, and here’s hoping that this one finally manages to make it big. I am getting a bit tired of “my” books not doing so well at the theater.

Divergent Teaser Trailer…

movie-iconJust in case anyone has ever doubted my true nerd status, I have been checking for a Divergent trailer every day for the last few weeks. And I do mean every day. It turns out that the first full length version will debut Sunday night at the MTV Music Video Awards, but a teaser was upped today to tide us over. It is my first peek at actual footage, and I like it. Now, the problem becomes enjoying the glimpses we get without seeing too much like I did for City of Bones. I swear, there was  a new clip/interview/picture every other day for what seemed like a month. By the time I was done, I felt like I had already seen the movie.

Anyways, here is the official Divergent teaser trailer for those who haven’t seen it yet.

What do you think? It isn’t much to go on, but I like the tone. And it is already better than the Vampire Academy one, at least.

Vampire Academy First Official Trailer…

Huh. Not sure quite what my feelings are about this one. The first trailer for the upcoming Vampire Academy adaptation, Blood Sisters, just came out today. It didn’t grab me like I was hoping, and it has a bit of a campy vibe I didn’t expect. Of course, this is very early as filming just finished only a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully the next trailers will have a bit more polish.

So, what is your take on this? As much as I enjoyed the books, the trailer is a bit lacking for me. It is great to get the word out about the movie, but it wouldn’t have hurt to wait a couple of weeks (until after City of Bones is released) and polish things a bit more. First impressions and all that.

Book Trailer Previews…

I have a love/hate relationship with book trailers. Most of the time I just find them annoying (and funny), but every once in a while I do find myself intrigued enough to add whatever the book is to the TBR pile. I decided to pull together a few recent trailers to see if any of them will tempt you into trying the book. Ready?

This first one is for The Burning Sky, the first book in a new trilogy by Sherry Thomas that will be released on September 17th.

October 1st is the release date for Unbreakable, the first book of The Legion series by Kami Garcia.

Hype for this next one is strong, and I admit I caved and pre-ordered it (before I saw the trailer). Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke will be released on August 15th.

For me, I thought the Burning Sky trailer was a bit dull. It gives you the basics, but you can get the same from reading the synopsis. I did like the one for Unbreakable, and I thought it did a decent job of selling the book (might have to add that one, too).  But the one for The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea? Not feeling it.

Catching Fire Trailer…

The Hunger Games Fandom has been thrown into a tizzy by the new official theatrical trailer for Catching Fire. I am talking tears, people. I have to admit that it does look great (and very true to the book), and it will definitely be huge.

There are so many great adaptations to look forward to (I am still hunting for Divergent footage, which I hope will be released soon), but this one has to be at the top of the pack.
