"The road to power is paved with hypocrisy ... and casualties"
Last week we learned that season 2 of the hit Netflix series House of Cars is debuting on Valentine’s Day 2014 and, as you may recall, we also got to see a short teaser clip for the show. Today we get to feast our eyes on an overly-dramatic first trailer for HoC season 2 which is embedded above. As you can see in this video, the drama is heightened exponentially in season 2 … a fact that is driven home by the intensity of this first trailer. If you’re a fan of House of Cards then I highly suggest you check out this just-released trailer. I’m already stressed out by HoC season 2 just from watching this trailer. I cannot WAIT to dive in and start watching the entire series as soon as it is released on Netflix in February. Season 2 looks good, eh?

Seriously. WatchThis Shizz NOW!
OMG, yesterday I watched the trailer for this new movie, and I was lit’rally on the edge of my couch the entire time. Reasonable Doubt looks so damn good, I cannot wait for its release. The incomparable Samuel L. Jackson stars alongside Dominic Cooper in the new thriller, in which Cooper plays a lawyer whose involvement with a hit-and-run gets hella complicated when Jackson‘s character is implicated in the crime. My only beef with the trailer is that it reveals so much of the plot, but it looks so exciting I really can’t complain. Peep the video for more!
"None of us have faced a situation quite like this before"
It’s been a while since the world was graced with a new Godzilla movie so Warners Bros. figured it was about time to release a new one. As you may recall, the last big Godzilla movie to come out was released back in 1998 and it was a total stinker. Unlike the classic Japanese Godzilla films that made the giant, menacing lizard a cult classic figure, Gozilla ’98 was IMHO a huge disappointment. My hope is that lessons were learned from that film to ensure that Godzilla 2014 will turn out much better. Click the embed above to check out the just-released teaser trailer for this new version of Godzilla and get your first peek at the monster. Godzilla will hit theaters on May 16 but I think we can expect quite a bit of promo between now and then. Any old skool Godzilla fans in the house? Are you impressed with this first look at this new version of Godzilla?

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Ummm, yespleasemorethankyou. The gods of video games have finally answered my call and have created a product that I’m totally okay with my boys playing. Folks, the Franz Kafka video game you didn’t know you’d been waiting for is finally here. I don’t play video games, but I am weirdly psyched about this, as it reminds me of the good ol’ days, studying literary theory at Sarah Lawrence and getting introduced to Kafka via great works like The Metamorphosis and A Hunger Artist.

"This is bigger than you, Peter"
Earlier this week we learned that the first full trailer for next year’s superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be coming out today and, Ta da!, here it is! That promo banner that we saw previously, the one that hinted that the Green Goblin might appear in the film alongside fellow villains Electro and Rhino, gave us a clue as to how big Amazing 2 will be. The full trailer, which you can watch above, gives us even MORE clues that the movie (or, movies to come) will be ENORMOUS! Yes, Electro, Rhino and Green Goblin are featured in the trailer but watch carefully and see that the other villains who make up the nefarious Sinister Six are hinted at as well. OMG. My first reaction to watching this trailer is that I LOVE everything I see. My one tiny fear is that with 3 villains in one film, there’s a lot of story to be told and my concern is that with too much going on, the overall plot may feel messy/complicated/not fully fleshed out. Still, I was impressed with director Marc Webb‘s work on the first Amazing Spider-Man so I am going to trust him with this very exciting-looking sequel. Have a look at the trailer and tell me, does this movie not look AMAZING?!
Hitting Theatres Christmas Day
Earlier in the week I saw this trailer for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and I couldn’t help but get all warm and gooey inside. Last year Trent shared photos from the film’s set and now we have our first look at some actual footage. Ben Stiller‘s new movie (he’s both directing and starring) is being hailed as the new Forrest Gump and, while I think that’s a pretty bold claim, this first trailer does give off that ‘life is like a box o’ chocolates vibe.‘ Stiller plays Mitty, a guy Anybody else excited for this one to come out?
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty hits theatres Christmas Day.
Long Time Coming
Earlier this month we got to see a sneak peek of Lana Del Rey‘s anticipated (and delayed) short film titled Tropico and today, at last, we get to see an official trailer for the film. Even more exciting, we learn that LDR will release Tropico online on December 5. There has been a lot of talk about this film for much of the year. While fans have been anxiously awaiting new music from Lana, she has been promising the release of this film … and at long last, it’s almost here. Check out the trailer embedded above to get a better feel for what we can expect when Tropico drops in a couple of weeks. I hope this film is worth the wait cuz I’m SO ready for new LDRness.

No, Seriously ... this trailer is NSFW
Back in August of 2012, we first heard that pre-production and early casting talk was underway for director Lars von Triers‘s new film Nymphomaniac when Shia LaBeouf‘s name was attached to the project. This past July, we got to see a NSFW still from the movie that features Shia and it became clear that the movie was going to be, well, full of nekkidness. Today we get to see the first official trailer for Nymphomaniac and as I’m sure you can guess, the NSFW video features a lot of nudity which isn’t really appropriate watching in a lot of settings … but hey, it’s Friday, maybe we can use a bit of spice. Click the embed above to have a look at this trailer according to your best judgement. I’m not sure that the quick scenes presented in this trailer give a great feel for the plot of the film but you deffo get a feel for the eroticness in store when Nymphomaniac hits theaters.

"Do you guys think that Kermit's been acting a bit weird lately?"
Back in August we got to see the very cute teaser trailer for next spring’s sequel film Muppets Most Wanted. Today we get to check out the just-released first official trailer for the film … which you will see in front of theatrical movies starting this weekend. As you can see in the video embedded above, this first trailer gives us a really good understanding of what to expect from Muppets Most Wanted when it hits theaters next Spring. The trailer is over 2 minutes long so we get to see a lot … and, personally, I’m loving it all. This looks really cute (and already better than the last Muppets movie we got). I’m in, are you?

THE BIEBER'STACHE RETURNS!
For the past few weeks, Justin Bieber has been promoting the release of his new film #BelieveMovie (HERE and HERE, for example) but today we get to feast our eyes on the first official movie trailer for Believe. In the clip embedded above, JB gives a shout out to his infamous Bieber’stache — which is HILAR — but I take a bit of issue regarding the way the young man is portrayed in a “woe is me” sort of way. Usher actually says that Bieber is “forced to grow up in front of the world” without explaining that HE (as his manager) is among the people “forcing” anything. Still, the “poor little rich boy” narrative will likely sell well to his legion of fans (even if that shizz doesn’t fly with some of us). Check out the trailer above and see if Believe is a movie that YOU will have to see when it opens in theaters on Xmas day.
