Trailer Tuesday

Last I checked, Tuesdays around here were reserved for movie trailers, so let's pick things up where we left off.

Last weekend's opening of Iron Man 2 brought with it the debut of two highly anticipated trailers. The one for J.J. Abrams' Super 8 is worth seeing but, annoyingly, it's a major tease. Given that the movie won't open for another year, expect another slow build-up to the release date ala Cloverfield. Abrams sure does know how to feed the hype monster.

Much less of a tease, however, is the newly released trailer for Christopher Nolan's Inception...a film I've been eagerly anticipating for some time now. This third trailer finally includes dialogue and a much clearer explanation of the mind-bendy plot. Fantastic director + fantastic cast + fantastic concept + fantastic trailer = my number one most-wanted film of the summer. The film also appears to be heavily influenced by another favorite film of mine, the Alex Proyas-directed Dark City. The film hits theatres on July 16th and it looks like it might be worth spending the extra coin to see it in IMAX.
