Trailer Prognosticator: ‘The Losers’, ‘Kick-Ass’ Red Band #2 & ‘Toy Story 3’

Sometimes you can accurately tell from a trailer how awesome a movie is going to be…and sometimes they trick you. So why not consult the Magic Trailer 9-Ball? It’s wise, witty, all-knowing, all-seeing and its guess is as good as yours.

First look at The Losers
The first I’d heard of the project came in the form of a poster hanging up in the DC booth at 2009’s San Diego Comic Con. The cast? Excellent. The premise? A group of dudes doing dirty work for the CIA get double-crossed, seek retribution with the help of a badass chick. Thumbs up. But the proof is in the pudding and the pudding is the actual footage.

And boy, it’s good footage. It’s got the right ingredients for a great flick. Explosions, fight scenes, great dialogue – this may be the movie that elevates Columbus Short to the next level of stardom.  See for yourself:

More Potty Mouth Action From Kick-Ass
From every account so far, this movie is going to be banoodles. But to really get a sense for what it’s going to be, you have to watch the Red Bands for it. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of blood, bad words, and “Holy (*&#!” moments. It’s also not for the faint of heart. Or kids. Definitely not for the kids.

Another Look At Toy Story 3
The third and likely last installment of the saga of Woody and friends. Admittedly I didn’t think I’d dig the storyline but I have to say this trailer totally hooked me. I could live without the 3D though…

Tucker & Dale vs Evil
To finish out this edition, we have this little indie gem starring Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine. They had me at Alan Tudyk but it gets much better. A group of stereotypical horror movie college kids go on vacation and mistakenly believe Tucker and Dale are crazy, murdering, hillbilly psychopaths. Hijinks (and death) ensue.

So what say you? Agree with the all-knowing 9-Ball? Any of these movies floating your boat? Do you also want to make out with Alan Tudyk? Um…feel free to ignore that last one…

About Tamara Brooks

A few things I wondered about as a kid: Why didn't Wonder Woman punch more bad guys in the face on the tv show?; How does Superman flying around the Earth turn back time?; Could someone really catch bullets with their teeth?; Why didn't the liquid bits of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man cause 3rd degree burns on whoever it landed on? Because melted marshmallow is up there with molten hot lava.
