Movie Trailers This Week: The Hobbit’s Desolation, 300′s Rise, Drift
Last week, we showed you new trailers for Machete Kills, mob out of water comedy The Family, and CollegeHumor’s Coffee Town. This week, we’ve got funky fresh promos for The Hobbit; The Desolation of Smaug, 300: Rise of an Empire, Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake in Runner Runner, Sam Worthington in Drift, Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, and Vanessa Hudgens (aka V-Hudge aka Hudge Brownie Sundae) in The Frozen Ground. Grab a bucket of popcorn, avoid the nachos, and watch, comment, share the top new trailers to hit Dailymotion in the past seven days.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug via FanReviews
There’s been some hub-bub… a bruhaha… people be complaining about Evangeline Lilly’s character, who is new to the franchise (read: wasn’t in the books). You know you’ve gone overboard with your fanboyism when you can’t accept Lost’s Kate into your lives. She could be inserted into any franchise as a new character and I’d be like, “yes, perfect. I was just thinking that” no matter how illogical or random it might be. Embrace, nerds. Embrace.
300: Rise of an Empire via Teaser Trailer
In this sequel, the Greek general Themistocles battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes. Themistocles is played by Sullivan Stapleton who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in 2010′s Animal Kingdom and also appeared in January’s Gangster Squad. Game of Thrones‘ Cersei (Lena Headey) and Eva Green also star. The face rip towards the end is Mortal Kombat-esque. Righteous.
Runner, Runner via FanReviews
A Princeton grad student travels to Costa Rica to confront an online gambling tycoon after being swindled, but ends up getting seduced by the promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI tries to coerce the student to help bring down the tycoon, he faces his biggest gamble ever.
Ben Affleck plays the tycoon (mixed feelings on that w/o the Boston accent), JT plays the student (that fits), Ben Schwartz plays the bud (nice), Anthony Mackie’s FBI (yup), and Gemma Arterton looks like she’d be a really great kisser.
Drift via Teaser Trailer
In the ’70s, two brothers battle killer waves, conservative society and ruthless bikers to kick-start the modern surf industry.
Whole lotta Aussie up in this joint. On a slightly related note, I had an ‘oil can’ of Foster’s the other night at the bar (bah) and got a lot of love from lads, not so much from the lasses. Foster’s – Australian for bro’ing out.

Written and directed by Woody Allen, this drama is about a woman that has a life crisis and heads to San Francisco, where she reconnects with her sister. Flick stars Peter Sarsgaard, Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Andrew Dice Clay, and Louis C.K. Wait, what? Those last two threw me off.
No offense to anyone, but I’m kind of over these movies. I’d watch the scenes with Clay and Louis C.K. interacting with Baldwin, but I’m in the midst of my own crisis to take on another one. Sorry, Mr. Allen.
The Frozen Ground via Team Lyricis
Based on actual events, this thriller follows an Alaska State Trooper who partners with a young woman who escaped the clutches of serial killer to bring the murderer to justice.
Cusack’s the killer (interesting), Hudgens is the victim (sha right), and Nic Cage is the trooper. 50 Cent also makes an appearance as a pimp. Total miscast on that one. Come on, Hollywood.
