Tobey McGuire fighting Soviet Rooskies! Kevin Bacon fighting kids! Kids fighting Elijah Wood?

Welcome to Almighty Popcorn!

Alan
Good day our ever faithful peeps.

Lewis
Aloha good buddy!

Alan
It is Thursday again and once again we scour the internet to find the best trailers out there that have caught our eye, and think that they’re worth the watch.

So for this week, our top choices for films to watch from their trailers;

Pawn Sacrifice Official Trailer (#1)

 

Alan
This looks really..

Lewis
Boooooring!

Alan
We both agreed on the chosen three trailers this week!

Lewis
This was the lesser of the many evils out there!

Alan
Well, what’s so bad about it?

Lewis
Well, it revolves around a chess prodigy in the height of the Cold War, and who wants to pick a fight with the Soviet Union using his sport.  Hello?!  Might as well call this Rocky 4 The Chess Version!  I don’t like stuff like this, it tries to make it all compassionate and thoughtful but it just comes out as pretentious.  Kinda like listening to Tracey Emin.

Alan
But you have to agree that the photography looks extremely well done?

Lewis
It looks like someone’s smothered Pinterest all over it.

Alan
Fine!  Be that way.  As I was saying, this looks like the intelligent true story of Bobby Fisher (played by Tobey McGuire) who became the youngest grandmaster of chess during the Cold War.  The story revolves around how he plans to beat his Russian rival Boris Spassky, played by Live Schreiber, whilst trying to deal with his mentality.

The film comes out later this year in September and should feature quite an interesting story on such an esoteric subject.  Well, at least for some.

Lewis
Don’t be mean!

Cop Car Official Trailer (#1)

 

Lewis
Now this is more like it!

Alan
Glad you agree this time.  It looks like Kevin Bacon headlines on this one with what looks like an original story.  Which we probably haven’t seen for quite some time.

Lewis
Screw that!  Look at his epic moustache!

 

It’s almost like he doesn’t care it’s not Movember.

Alan
….K.  Cop Car stars James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford who play Travis and Harrison.  The two boys go out exploring until they find an abandoned police vehicle that still has the keys.  And when you’re a ten year old who sees something that he’s not supposed to do…naturally he’s going to do it.

Lewis
JOY RIDE TIME!

Alan
Quite.  Truthfully the start of the film looks a bit comedic.  But as soon as Kevin Bacon comes into play, he has this delicious way of being extremely creepy.

Lewis
Kevin Bacon being bad again!

Alan
He seems to be doing that a lot lately!  You know, besides doing EE ads.

Lewis
Those always make me giggle.  BUFFER FACE!!

Alan
Urgh, the film comes out this August and hopefully we’ll get a chance to go see it.

Cooties Official Trailer (#1)

Alan
Another..

Lewis
ZOMBIE MOVIE!  GRAB THE POPCORN!

Alan
We’re cheating on this one a little, it was released last week but it has been doing the rounds with Lewis this past week.

Lewis
I.e., I’ve been watching it every day, every hour *shy*.

Alan
And the rest!  The roster stars Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Leigh Whannell and a whole variety of other peeps.

Stories have come and gone with the whole zombie genre.  From shopping centres, army bases, towns, whole cities, even the odd school.  But a primary school does take a different twist.

Lewis
I so want to see this awesome film!

Alan
It does look like it’s aimed at teachers who wish to “vent” on the unruly nightmares that are children.

Lewis
I’m not an unruly nightmare am I?

Alan
Only on the days that have an A in it.

Lewis
Oh good.

Alan
*facepalm* This one comes out in September too and this one is definitely going to be on our “Don’t Miss” list.

Lewis
First place I go to in a zombie apocalypse, milkshake place.  I’m gonna be all over that like Simon Cowell on groups of boys that think they can sing.
