We’ve got new trailers to share with you today – but not just any trailers. Nope, these are trailers from abroad. Trailers with an international flavor. Savor their deliciousness.
First up is a new Japanese clip for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla. There’s not a ton of new footage in this preview, but there is some – and let’s be honest: we’d all watch the same Godzilla clip 10 times a day from now until the release because it looks that amazing. Our only concern here is that we immediately think of Walter White every time we see Bryan Cranston… [via io9]
Next up, it’s another Japanese teaser – this time for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Mark Wahlberg introduces the clip, which is full of the quick-cutting action and giant explosions that have become synonymous with Bay’s body of work. If you’re looking for spectacle, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re looking for nuanced characters and deep stories, you might have to keep looking. Still, there are lots of "giant f***ing robots" here -- what more could you ask for?
And finally, we stay in the Land of the Rising Sun with an international clip for X-Men: Days of Future Past. There’s some new footage in this one that X-fans will want to check out. Don’t be put off by the Japanese voiceover, though -- the actual footage is all in English. Could this be the greatest X-Men movie to date? If these trailers are any indication, it's certainly got a shot.
So, what have we learned from today’s show-and-tell segment? This summer appears to be shaping up quite nicely in the blockbuster department. All three of these movies are going to rake in some serious cash at the box office, which is good news if you were worried that maybe the studios were getting a little light in the wallet.
Which of these three features are you looking forward to seeing most? It’s Godzilla for me, but X-Men is making a strong case for my affection at this point.
