Trailerpark Tuesday – X-Men, Edge and Hercules

Comic Con Tips - Trailerpark Tuesday

Today we start a new tradition: Trailerpark Tuesday.We’ll introduce movie trailers that have come out during the previous week and give our takes on them. We’re a little late today, as the idea was hatched today but here is what we have for this week:

New trailers this week:

X-Men: Days of Future Past – May 23, 2014

Tim – I’ll admit that I was originally hesitant about this movie. I thought that First Class was such a cool new take on X-Men. So when I heard that Brian Singer and many of the characters from the earlier movies were back, I was a little disappointed. But this newest trailer brought me back! EPIC!
Trevor – I like this second trailer significantly more than the first one.  The first one left me confused, this one shows me a plot that I can get behind. All I know is that even after this trailer, we haven’t seen even a part of how cool this show will be. I based that on the panel at San Diego Comic Con in 2013. There are a lot of great cast members in this show. It will be awesome.


Edge of Tomorrow – June 6, 2014

Tim – I’m more excited about this movie than maybe any other summer movie this year. Let’s hope it lives up to my expectations. Sci-fi mind-bendy with a dash of Groundhog’s Day? Yes, please.
Trevor – All I can think about after watching this trailer is Groundhog Day meets mini Jaegers from Pacific Rim (In my defense, I did not know about Tim’s Groundhog’s Day comment when I wrote this). Looks to be very action packed and I’ll bet the special effects are phenomenal. I don’t think there will be much meat to this movie, but looks like fun eye candy with a twist.


Hercules – Jul 25, 2014

Tim – Is it cool if I admit that I have a man-crush on Dwayne Johnson? There’s a 50/50 chance that this movie will be terrible, but I’ll give them props for a pretty cool trailer. Did you see that lion? And that boar?!
Trevor –  I guess Tim, although I think Jason Statham is perhaps a better man-crush pick 😉 – This movie could be interesting, but the trailer spends too much time hiding that Dwayne is playing the Hercules character. So much so that it was a little distracting. I’m interested to see the next trailer that will hopefully give us a little more information.

P.S. If you’re someone who can grant us interviews to get more info, please contact us here.

Trevor began his forray into nerdom as a kid peddling his bike all the way to the local bookstore to purchase comic books. The boring superhero comics weren’t good enough for Trevor, he wanted the real ones. The ones with ducks. Now who's laughing while he’s on his way to cash in all those valuable Ducktales comics. Soon he’ll have his own money bin full to the brim. These days, to fill the time before the money bin construction completes (and begins), Trevor fills his time with photography, movies, television and comic book conventions. You can find his cosplay Meet & Greet mini-shoot and articles on this site as well as prints of his photographs being sold by cosplayers throughout the land.

P.S. Trevor converted to Marvel & DC comics and movies later on, so no heartburn on that one, right?
