Who’s ready for some trailers? We’ve got two new clips today for highly anticipated – and wildly different – movies to share.
Kermit and the gang are back in action after 2011’s hit The Muppets took the world by storm. Naturally, that means a sequel is in order, and the guys at Disney understand that follow-ups need to be bigger, bolder and better than the film that inspired it. As such, we’re all being treated to Muppets Most Wanted – which finds Kermit and his pals embroiled in an international crime caper alongside Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey. What’s not to love here?
Okay, we could have lived without the "Moves Like Jagger" musical number. If you can hang with that, this looks like a lot of fun.
Expect this one in theaters next spring. [via Disney]
Now we jump from the lighthearted laughter of The Muppets to the more somber spectacle that is Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s beloved novel Ender’s Game.
The final trailer for the highly anticipated film is now online and it looks good. We're still not 100% sold on a movie version living up the awesomeness of Card’s book, but at the very least this film should get more people interested in giving the novel a read.
Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley costar with Asa Butterfield in this sci-fi tale about a young boy groomed to save humanity from an impending alien invasion. The new clip shows off lots of special effects and dramatic battles, so it’s surprising it's getting a release on November 1 instead of this summer since it looks a lot more like a summer flick than a holiday-season movie.
Will this hurt Ender’s Game ticket sales? Will it find an audience in a season where weighty dramas and family fare tend to rule the roost? Only time will tell – but judging from this clip, we think Ender’s Game will do well. [via IndieWire]
