Boy oh boy have there been a lot of trailers to share with you folks but that is never a bad thing when you consider some of the properties that are going to be coming to life on the big screen this summer and the months that follow it. Back in November of 2014 I shared the Teaser Trailer of the upcoming film “Jurassic World”. Honestly speaking, it was much more than a tease based on its length and now with the films opening only a few short months away we have gotten a bigger and better look into the chaos that will be happening on the island that time forgot. Take a look below and we can chat more afterward.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I enjoyed the first trailer that I posted a few months ago and I really loved all three of the Jurassic Park films that preceded this upcoming release so I guess I am a little on the jaded side. However, when you consider the dismal and brooding trailer that was just released for the eventually coming “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice”, this one put light and excitement back into my cinephile head (that’s a person who loves movies so get your minds out of the gutter). We get a little more in this trailer than in the previous and we see fleeting glimpses of the Indominus Rex which as you know is a genetically created beast by a greedy park ownership. Like Pratt said in the first trailer “probably not a good idea” and this shows us the price of such folly. There also appears to be a lot of other dino mayhem to be had which should make this an amazing film on the big screen. The film opens up everywhere on June 12th of this year and gives you a nice theatrical experience while you wait for Marvel Studios upcoming “Ant-Man” film. I know that I will be there in the early days of release and I wonder what you kind readers think about this one. Let me know in the comments below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As much as I wanted to see this one in the theaters on its opening, the constant shifts in when it was going to open have found it happening at a point where I just cannot afford the time to sit in a theater. This one is likely going to be an HBO one or Netflix for me but I still do wish to see it. What about you folks? Are you interested in this one? Let me know in the comments below. You can also learn more about the film overall on its Wiki entry but be aware that spoiler information will posted in there.
I loved the first “Jurassic Park” film along with the second go round and can admit that I even found a slight pleasure in the third film despite it being the weakest of the mix. When I think back to the first film, I have to chuckle about my hitting this one with my parents who seldom found interest in the same things as me when it came to actually going to the movies but I had convinced them it was a good enough book, had to have made a decent film and that it would be a fun family get together for us. Pop liked it more than Mom but I expected that. Earlier during the day I started seeing notations around the web that the fourth film in the franchise was practically in the can for the cinemas and that the first trailer was ready to be enjoyed so here we go.

You loved her as The Black Widow in “Iron Man 2”, “The Avengers” and of course in “Captain America: the Winter Soldier” but now Scarlett Johansson dishes out the pain in her own action film entitled “Lucy” which opens up in theaters everywhere today. Check out the poster below.
Premise: In a world run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts, and corrupt cops, Lucy is a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. A drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, which allows her to use more than the normal 10% of her brain’s capacity, thus changing her into a superhuman. As a result, she can absorb information instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and can choose not to feel pain or other discomforts, in addition to other abilities. (from the films Wiki entry) Continue reading Opening Today: “Lucy” (7/25/2014)→
