May SciFi and Fantasy Movie Trailer Round-Up



Hey Nerds! Uhh.. guess what?

This month’s edition of the Movie Trailer Round-Up series is kinda late, and I’ll bet like, ALL of you know that Iron Man 3 came out last week, so, uh… oops!

But you know what else? There are like, MORE movies coming out this month that you could take a look at, and it’s the start of the summer season, too, so that means most of the BIG stuff’s coming out. Check out these trailers and see if there are any coming that you don’t know about.



Title: Iron Man 3

Rating: PG-13

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce

What it’s about: The third installment in the mega-popular Iron Man film series is already out, and if you’re a comic book fan who hasn’t seen it yet, you’ll have plenty of time because Iron Man 3 will be in theaters for a while. According to Box Office Mojo, it made $68.3 million in the United States as of Saturday night, more than Iron Man 2’s $51.2 million garnered over the same weekend. Check out the trailer below to see what all the fuss is about!



Title: Star Trek Into Darkness


Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Benedict Cumberbatch

What it’s about: This looks like the most epic Star Trek movie in the new franchise yet. Spoilers abound on the Internet regarding this movie’s plot, but I’ve avoided all of them, so if you know more than I do about what this one’s about, may the force be wi– oh, umm… wrong movie. But anyhow, check out the trailer below, where it’s pretty obvious that Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock fame is going to be causing trouble for Kirk and the gang.



Title: Epic

Rating: PG

Starring: Beyoncé Knowles, Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Knoxville

What it’s about: In this CG animated tale, the forces of good and evil fight with a young girl caught in the middle. Sounds like a recipe for some good times if you like your summer movies full of whimsy and childlike wonder.



Title: After Earth

Rating: PG-13

Starring: Will Smith and Jaden Smith

What it’s about: Will Smith and his son Jaden play father and son onscreen in this futuristic tale about people left stranded on Earth 1,000 years after an apocalyptic catastrophe. They face evolved animal antagonists and aliens in a harsh environment, and honestly, if the trailer’s any indication, this movie looks like it could be pretty good.
