Sneak Peek: The Week in Movie Trailers » Celeb News/Sneak Peek

They say to never judge a book by its cover, but the Internet has given us a slew of new movie previews to put the figurative extensions of that old piece of advice to the test.


Taken 2

"What are you going to do?"
"What I do best."
YES! More Liam Neeson badass-ery and gravel-y voiced phone calls always. Forever.


Looper

After Dark Knight Rises, this should be at the top of your must-see list. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis play time-traveling assassins pitted against each other even though they're the same person. Confusing? Yes. Amazing? Also yes.


Robot & Frank

Frank Langella is almost criminally underrated as an actor, so it's about time he gets another shot at carrying a new movie, especially if it involves robbing pretentious hipsters to save a library. Something tells me this should have been enough, but in true Hollywood fashion, they decided to add a robot sidekick with an E.T.-like subplot.


The Sessions

I sure hope this turns out to be more than just Oscar bait. John Hawkes is always fantastic, so I want this to be as well, but there's a made-for-the-Hallmark-Channel sheen to the trailer that warrants skepticism. At the very least, you can bet on a happy ending. (Zing!)


Easy Money

Easy Money is a Swedish film that came out in 2010 under the title Snabba Cash (which, if you ask me, is a way cooler name), but it's only now making its way stateside. As is customary for American trailers of foreign films, there's no dialogue, but the preview does have sweet dinner parties, crime sprees, guns, murder, beautiful women, men in suits, and a stamp of approval from Martin Scorsese, so I'm in! Plus, Joel Kinnamen (aka the new RoboCop) finally stars in something that looks infinitely better than The Killing.


The Exquisite Corpse Project

Ever wonder what a game of Telephone would look like if you turned it into a movie and then made a documentary about the process? The answer to that question well likely determine just how interested you are in seeing this film.


Arbitrage

Oof. Rich white people problems. It's going to be a stretch for an audience to sympathize with Richard Gere when he's one part Bernie Madoff, two parts Ted Kennedy circa Chappaquiddick, but at least Arbitrage gives Tim Roth an opportunity to try out another fluctuating, native-to-nowhere accent.


Silver Linings Playbook

Cheers to Bradley Cooper for taking a risk on this one by playing against type, but wow this one falls flat. The trailer makes no attempt to turn the "you're crazy, no you're crazy; isn't love crazy?" into anything remotely earned or realistic. And then they felt the need to throw in Jennifer Lawrence's dance recital for which she happens to need a partner? Yeesh. (On another note: Hey, Chris Tucker, good to see you again.)


Alex Cross

Whoa! Tyler Perry drops the lady fat suit for a turn as an action hero? Interesting. Kind of. And how about a ripped Matthew Fox? His veins are going to burst.

What do you think? Out of this bunch of movies, what are you most looking forward to? Sound off in the comments, below.
