Movie trailers: Star Trek, Fast 6, The Wolverine, Thor and more!

I reviewed Iron Man 3 yesterday, but one thing I didn’t mention was the fact that the previews leading up to the actual movie were almost as entertaining as the movie itself. It was basically 10 minutes of fast-paced action movie previews.

Star Trek: Into Darkness
Watch the trailer

I was anxious to see Star Trek before I saw the preview, but even moreso now that I have. It looks like Captain Kirk is really going to have his hands full with this new villain. Like with other trilogies and multi-film movies, there’s usually a darker movie – one where the super hero faces very threatening foes and not everyone makes it out of the film alive. The Dark Knight was that movie in the Dark Knight trilogy. Iron Man 3 was that movie in the Iron Man series. Spider-Man 3 was that movie in the Spidey movies starring Tobey Maguire. Into Darkness looks to be aptly named, as there are shots of crew members jumping off large buildings, falling towards the ground below. It will be interesting to see Kirk, Spock and company survive their latest challenge.

Fast 6
Watch the trailer

Way back in 2001, I watched the first Fast and the Furious and thought it was crap – wasn’t impressed whatsoever. Between Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, there was a lot of bad acting in that movie. However, Fast 6 – starring The Rock – looks to be watchable.
