I stopped watching trailers and clips for Watchmen awhile ago because I want to save something for the final release. I'm almost at that same place with JJ Abrams' new Star Trek movie, but this latest Trek trailer throws out some tantalizing bits. Kirk's dad was in Starfleet? He knew Captain Pike? Don't bother with the transporter, I'm already on board for this one, and it hits on May 8.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
If you're a hardcore Harry Potter fan you've probably already finished reading the novels, so this penultimate film in the series will have no real surprises. The question is how well will the film retell Rowling's story, and if this trailer is any indication the answer is "quite well indeed, thank you very much." Hope everyone's gotten their letter from Hogwart's because the Hogwart's Express departs on July 17.
The Limits of Control
This trailer will have you wondering what the heck is going on, but it piqued my curiosity enough to make me want to see the movie. There's this mysterious guy, there's talk of revenge and how useless it is. It's all pretty cryptique. My enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that this is from Jim Jarmusch, director of the disappointing Broken Flowers, but who knows. This one gets a limited release on May 22.
