The first movie was based on actual event and made a ton of money, so what is this sequel doing you ask? Well, the guy who directed the first movie (Charles Martin Smith, who also directed Air Bud) is back directing and took over writing details – so he must have really liked him some Dolphin Tale. The movie also has Kris Kristofferson returning, pictured here.
The sequel sees the return of cast members Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman, Nathan Gamble, and Cozi Zuehlsdorff as they continue Winter the Dolphin’s treatment. There’s a whole synopsis below of how this movie is a movie, so if you’re interested you should definitely read that.
With a special appearance by professional surfer Bethany Hamilton, Dolphin Tale 2 opens September 19th – watch the trailer below:
Here is the first teaser trailer for the new Disney Channel series Girl Meets World from the creators and some cast behind Boy Meets World. In the new show Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are parents to their young daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and she’s getting into all sorts of shenanigans.
From this clip alone, I’m a little weary about the tone of the show; although it’s Disney, I was hoping it would remain somewhat true to Boy Meets World. BMW was funny, sweet, and often pretty dramatic for a kids TV show. This looks a little too colorful and whacky for my taste, time will tell though. Other original cast members, including William Daniels (Mr. Feeny), Corey Fogelmanis (Minkus), and Rider Strong (Shawn) are set to return from time to time.

Girl Meets World premieres on Disney Channel this summer, watch the trailer below:
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is on a lot of people’s most-anticipated films of the summer lists I’m sure, and for good reason. The first entry into the series was a lot of fun and it looks like the sequel is going to attempt to capture lightning in a bottle. The sequel takes place five years after the first movie with Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless likely getting into trouble:
While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.
This trailer has a lot going on here in terms of humor and drama, those elements made the first movie great. Are you excited yet? The film features the voices of Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Djimon Hounsou, and Kristen Wiig.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 13th, watch the new trailer below:
One of the best comedies of 2012 is coming back for more in what could be an even funnier outing a second time around in 22 Jump Street [21 Jump Street review]. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller return for the sequel, along with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who have left their undercover job at high school and have gone off to infiltrate a college campus, naturally.
This trailer is very funny, there is no doubt it will be a hit but I just think I will stop watching the clips and trailers that are coming out to save some of the surprise. [Check out the first red-band here]
The movie also stars Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Peter Stormare, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.
22 Jump Street opens June 13th, watch the red-band below:
Director Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here has a trailer now; he co-wrote, directed, and stars in the story of Aidan Bloom (played by Braff), a struggling actor, father, and husband who is seeking purpose in life and trying to come to terms with the impending death of his father (Mandy Patinkin).
The trailer is great; unlike most trailers today this one doesn’t say too much or show too much. It’s a montage of clips from the movie which looks like it could be a great comedy-drama for Braff again. Did you enjoy Garden State? You’ll probably love this.
The movie also stars Kate Hudson, Joey King, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons, Pierce Gagnon, Ashley Greene, and Donald Faison.
Wish I Was Here opens in limited release on July 18th, watch the trailer and read the full synopsis below.
I’m thankful that I just ate my lunch – some cold left over pizza we had for the Game of Thrones premier in case you’re wondering – so I’m set watching the trailer for Chef. The trailer looks delicious. Jon Favreau wrote, directed, and stars in his new film where he plays Carl Casper, a man who starts up a food truck business in the hopes of re-establishing his artistic promise after he loses his regular chef gig. It looks like a nice movie that everyone can enjoy and actually has something to say as well. Artistic and creative integrity are important qualities to have, even when it comes to delicious food.
The film also stars Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr.
Chef opens May 9th, watch the trailer below:
I wasn’t going to post this at all, because we already had one insufferable trailer posted, but holy hell this is bad. You know those trailers where reaction shots from clips they are showing don’t seem to fit because of different background or clothes or time of day? This trailer has about 5 of those and a girl changing her hair and becoming hot because of it. What a message!
The gags are awful and the plot is one big gimmick to get to Africa – this just all around blows. Why did I expect better from these two? They did The Wedding Singer which I enjoyed, is this the best they could do? At least there is Terry Crews who will likely steal the movie.
Blended opens on May 23rd, watch the trailer below if you want:
Here is a new short and to the point teaser trailer for The Expendables 3. The point is that the cast is huge! The best part of course is that Kelsey Grammer gets a moment here to smile; I’m not having a go at the man either, I’m genuinely a big fan. You have to admit though, who would have expected him to take part in any of these movies?
There are some explosions here and a roll call of many including Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen Powell.
The Expendables 3 opens August 15th, watch the trailer below:
Here is the first trailer for director Luc Besson’s (The Professional, The Fifth Element) upcoming action thriller Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson. The story tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. She now has clairvoyance, telekinesis, and an ability to disregard pain and emotion (that last description sounds like my last girlfriend right fellas? Hiyoooo!).
Seriously though, the movie looks fun enough but I couldn’t help but think of 2011′s Limitless starring Bradley Cooper where he gets the use of 100 percent of his brain with the help of drugs – and of course the X-Men-like ability to make a mess just by staring at things. What is that blue drug? Whatever it is, it’s nothing up against Morgan Freeman narration.
Lucy opens in theaters August 8th, watch the trailer below:
Here is the trailer for the crime drama The Drop starring the great Tom Hardy and late James Gandolfini in his final role. The movie was written by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone) and follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters. Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past. Gandolfini stars as Bob’s employer and cousin Marv, who was once respected and feared we learn.
There’ a lot of talent that went into this film, I have a lot of hope that it delivers what looks to be a solid story. If you haven’t seen Gandolfini in last year’s Enough Said with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, I highly recommend it as it was one of the best movies of 2013.
The Drop also stars Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville. It opens September 19th, watch the trailer below:
