Welcome to This Week In Movie Trailers! It’s Friday, and almost April, so let’s all celebrate with some movie previews! So, what do we have?

Holy moly! This is THE week of 2014 so far with a ton of blockbusters releasing their first teasers or first full-blown trailers! That doesn’t mean I am looking forward to all of them by any means, but this is definitely a sign that the summer is fast approaching (thank god I hate winter; how about the terrifying blizzard that hit east coast Canada? GO AWAY WINTER).

Anyhoo, excited? I am! So let’s get right to it!

Hercules

Of all the movies listed in this week’s article, Hercules (staring the incomparable Rock) is the movie I am looking forward to the most, and actually one of my most anticipated movies of the year. Why? A few reasons: 1) I absolutely love The Rock. He’s pretty much great. 2) I love the mythological character, Hercules. My favorite show growing up was Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. That said, this is a perfect combination and I think that The Rock was born to play him. Please, be awesome, or at least better than the other boring Hercules film.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Haha OK, you could definitely tell this was a Michael Bay film without even mentioning his name in the trailer. I loved the Ninja Turtles as a child, and throughout most of this trailer I was like “OK, this can work I guess. Looks fun, anyway.” Then that last action scene with Raphael launching into that truck, all while surfing down a mountain, happened. Well, alright then. Moving on.

Alien Abduction

Sure, why not. Original name, so I gotta go see it!

Jupiter Ascending

This could be amazing but also could be terrible. I’ll most likely check it out though. How does Channing Tatum look in make-up, ladies?

Trailer Park Boys: Don’t Legalize It

The Trailer Park Boys series was filmed a few hours where I grew up and now there 3rd movie (I think) was filmed where I currently live. Never been a fan of the show, but I know lots of people who were. Not my type of humor, but here you are.

Into The Storm

CRAZY! Never been done before. Wait, Richard Armitage is in this? I’m sold.

Edge of Tomorrow

This actually looks kinda boring to me. I know, I know, look at all that action. There’s just something about it that makes me yawn. I love Tom Cruise and think he gets a lot of unnecessary flak and criticism from people, but I don’t know about this film. I hope I’m wrong, though.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

So I guess people are complaining on the Internet about how serious this movie is and that it lacks all sense of humor that was a big part of the previous films. Well, whatever. You’ll watch it anyway (like myself). Looks interesting enough to warrant a ticket.

    People keep dismissing TMNT because it’s “a Micheal Bay film”, but it’s not. You all keep forgetting, Bay is only PRODUCING it, and has very little direct involvement in the movie. The guy directing it has kept Bay pretty hands-off since Bay tried to make him have the turtles be aliens. Bay was too busy ruining Grimlock to have much time to meddle in TMNT anyway. So I have hope it won’t completely suck.

      And the guy who’s directing it is the director behind Wrath of the Titans and Battle: LA. Which isn’t much of an upgrade from Michael Bay, and might even be a downgrade in some ways.

    Spoiler alert:
    Sean Bean dies.
