Trailer Round-Up, Week of June 4th – 8th, 2012

We’ve reached the weekend once again, and it’s time to take a look at the best trailers of the week for movies that you’ll be talking about for months!

Stephen Chbosky’s 1999 novel, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” has already become a highly successful coming-of-age modern classic akin to “Catcher in the Rye”. Now, with Summit Entertainment, Chbosky himself is taking his acclaimed novel to the big screen, writing and directing the adaptation. Logan Lerman stars as an introverted teenager using the alias of “Charlie”, as he navigates life in high school and adolescence in the early 1990’s. Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, Nina Dobrev, Johnny Simmons, and Dylan McDermott also star in the film, coming September 14th.

Disney’s new CGI-video game based movie, Wreck-It Ralph, is already grabbing attention for having a bunch of video game legends cameoing in a very Who Framed Roger Rabbit? style that will sure to make even non-gamers grin. And it look like it’ll be hilarious and fun. For thirty years, Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) has been overshadowed by the star of the video game, Fix-It Felix (voiced by Jack McBrayer). But Ralph is finally fed up with being the “bad guy” and escapes his arcade game, leading him on an adventure that could lead him to realize his dream of finally being the “good guy”. Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman also lend their voices the 3D and conventional film arriving November 2nd.

“Whip” is a commercial airline pilot whose becomes an American hero when he averts disaster and crash-lands a crippled airliner, saving the lives of 98 passengers in Flight, Robert Zemeckis’ first live-action film since 2000’s Cast Away. But as the everyman struggles with his newfound fame, the investigation of his behavior the night before the crash threaten to destroy him. Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Bruce Greenwood, and Tamara Tunie star in the Paramount drama coming November 2nd.

Quentin Tarantino doesn’t just make movie.  He makes marks on pop culture.  His newest film, the western actioner Django Unchained, is no different. In 1858, the German bounty hunter Dr. King Shultz (Christoph Waltz) promises to free the slave Django (Jamie Foxx) if he can identify his former slave owners, the Brittle Brothers. And if he can collect his bounty, not only will Django be freed, but Schultz will help him save his wife from the sadist plantation owner, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Kerry Washington, Gerald McRaney, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia, James Remar, RZA, and Samuel L. Jackson also star in the Weinstein Company film, coming December 25th.
