This last week has been insane when it comes to movie trailers. We were bombarded with trailers almost every day and it was glorious! Some of the biggest blockbusters of 2017 are coming and I can’t wait to spend all of my money. Just take it all! This is giving me hope that 2017 will be a much better year at the movies.
In case you have been living under a rock for the last week or so, here are the latest trailers and my first impressions.
Transformers: The Last Knight
First Impressions: The Earth has been laid waste and Optimus Prime is back, but he may be a bad guy. I really need to re-watch these movies. As A child of the 80s that loves Transformers, I think it’s time to stop with the sequels. Maybe this will be the last one.
Release Date: June 23, 2017
First Impressions: Ok, I personally don’t think this will be a money maker nor a life-changing movie. It looks overly dramatic yet humorous. However, as a woman, I can’t discredit any movie that mandates a shirtless Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. This should have been in their contracts years ago! Just saying…
Release Date: May 26, 2017
The War for the Planet of the Apes
First Impressions: I am so excited for this movie! Since the first moment Caesar screamed “No!” in the first movie, I have been a fan of the new series. I have only seen the first movie of the original series but it was so epic. A must watch for true fans. I will get to the other ones later. Sad to say, I am on Caesar’s side. Death to the humans!
Release Date: July 14, 2017
First Impressions: This looks like Mission: Impossible on sand. I get that Tom Cruise is an epic runner as demonstrated in all of this movies but eh. I don’t think this will be successful. Granted the Brandon Fraiser Mummy movies weren’t stellar, I still enjoyed one or two of them. They were kind of campy. I don’t know how I feel about this one yet. I may pass on it.
Release Date: June 9, 2017
First Impressions: Finally! Marvel got the rights to Spider-Man and are making a Marvel-level movie for him! I do like this Peter Parker and really hope he sticks. The revolving door for this character has been annoying. As long as they don’t go overboard with the Tony Starks involvement, I can support this. Don’t go all “Wolverine” with him. This looks pretty spectacular. Hyped!
Release Date: July 7, 2017
The Fate of the Furious
First Impressions: I gotta tell you, I haven’t seen one of these movies in years. I remember I saw on in the theater and they drove across the desert and into a cave I think. And even then, I skipped the one before that. Anyway, the cars look sick and the action is, as always, over the top. Don is a bad guy and Charlize has dreads?!? So confused. True Fast and the Furious fans rejoice!
Release Date: April 14, 2017
We are finally getting a chance to the see the new all-female cast of Ghostbusters in action. Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the new crew, this reboot shows that these women are not afraid to get down and dirty against New York’s poltegeist population. Fans of the original will appreciate the reappearance of everyone’s favorite green goblin, Slimer. And ladies, don’t worry, you will find plenty of eye candy with Chris Hemsworth, best know for playing Thor in the Marvel movies, as Kevin the receptionist.
Check out the trailer for the new movie set to premiere on July 15th!
