Here Are A Bunch of Movies We Can’t Wait to See Because of Their Trailers

November 8th, 2011 by Hulu Blog

A Dangerous Method

In theaters Wednesday, November 23, 2011

I’m a sucker for a good period drama and the trailer for A Dangerous Method has the formula just right.  Inspired by a true story?  Check.  Corsets?  Check.  Tastefully done lascivious subject matter?  Double check.  Sure, it looks like Kinsey with Magneto and Aragorn in Vienna instead of Qui-Gon Jinn in Indiana, but with corset veteran Keira Knightley as the object of obsession and director David Cronenberg at the helm, I’m expecting good things.  Besides, I liked Kinsey and Cronenberg’s past two collaborations with Viggo Mortenson—Eastern Promises and A History of Violence—were both awesome.  Now all I have to do is wait patiently for a few more weeks for it to come out.—Andrea Marker

The Muppets

In theaters Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Since I’ve spent whole hours of my time as a grown adult on the Muppet Wiki over the last few months reading articles about Jar of Orange Marmelade and Fully Operational Automated Tony Bennett, I should probably see this movie. I mean, this is a show that gave us sentences like this:

The Jar of Orange Marmalade is seen in episode 506 of The Muppet Show, tumbling down the rabbit hole with Alice during the “I’m Falling” number. He quips that he’s having a jam session.

That sentence alone is worth $12 and two hours on the day before Thanksgiving.—Ben Collins

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

In theaters Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Despite going wonky in the second entry, I still have an unabashed love for the Mission Impossible series. I love the gadgets, the backstabbing, the spy strategy, and well, lots of other things. So while this series has gotten tired for many, this trailer has me pumped. There’s something about the rhythm of the cuts of the first half, tied in with Eminem’s “Won’t Back Down” that gets the adrenaline going and showcases the action without giving too much away. The montage also includes some of Tom Cruise’s trademark running. No seriously, check out his movies one by one and see how many he runs in. It’s a lot and he looks awesome doing it. Normally a montage like this would close out the trailer, but instead we get to see a few extended clips featuring character dynamics that look very intriguing. Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg are no slouches, and we get the Mission Impossible signature impossible “entry” stunt too. And on top of all that, this is the first live action entry from one of my favorite directors, Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, The Iron Giant).

Where do I sign?—James Goux

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

In theaters Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I’m one of the few people that didn’t read the book (Editor’s note: Sheila is our Senior Cave Correspondent, as she lives in one.), but now I’m compelled to after watching this preview. The quick jumps from scene to scene and choice of music create an intense and sinister world that’s intriguing and totally punk rock.—Sheila Dichoso

Shame

In theaters Friday, December 02, 2011

An NC-17 movie that covers the male psyche, stars Michael Fassbender & Carey Mulligan, and isn’t Showgirls? Count me in.—Gabe Pasillas

The Sitter

In theaters Friday, December 09, 2011

I usually reserve my entire winter to watching Academy Awards-caliber movies so that Oscar night is spent placing bets with excruciatingly embarrassing consequences. This night is very important to me and, in turn, I’ve become a bit of an Oscar snob entirely by mistake.

But “The Sitter” is a road movie in a minivan driven by Jonah Hill yelling at children. Very basically, it’s Jonah Hill’s character in “Superbad” if college didn’t work out. Art it is not. Awesome it is.—Ben Collins
