Trailers! Who has time to watch them all? There are something like forty wide releases due out this summer alone. If you assume each trailer runs about two minutes, that’s about an hour and half of your life you’ll never get back. That’s time you could’ve spent actually watching one of these movies.
If you only watch one trailer this spring, then, you’ll want to make it this one. This three-minute supercut teases most of the season’s biggest releases, from Iron Man 3 to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s surprisingly coherent, which may suggest that these titles aren’t as different as the filmmakers would like us to think. Or maybe it just proves that with the right music and some skillful editing, you can totally change the meaning of any scene. In any case, watch it after the jump.

It all started with a tweet. That tweet above, to be specific. Monday afternoon director Edgar Wright tweeted that “Aside from The World’s End, I directed one shot in another summer movie. But which?” with the hashtag “I probably will not tell.” Twelve minutes later, he tweeted “Yeah. Some of you got it right.”
Many more people have replied to Wright after that 12 minutes but, looking just at the first few tweets there’s one film that’s mentioned way more than anything else: Iron Man 3. Which would make sense. Wright is set to next make Ant-Man, a Marvel movie, and a cameo would be very cool. Alas, Wright “exclusively revealed” that his shot is NOT in Iron Man 3. Back to the guessing game.
So, what movie could it be? Let’s speculate below. Read More »
If you’ve watched the red-band trailer for Jeff Wadlow‘s Kick-Ass 2, this new all-ages version isn’t going to do much for you. This is really just the red-band trailer with all the most offensive stuff cut out. So there’s a bit less footage of the character played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and a bit more of Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz), both in and out of costume. Even the last two kicker scenes — the place where a new trailer might usually break out the new material — are the same.
But if you want to see footage from Kick-Ass 2 and have some aversion to violence or cursing (no, I know — that wouldn’t make any sense) then check out the trailer below. For a better, different look, check out the “Hit-Girl goes to high school” trailer. Read More »

The series might be named after Kick-Ass, but it was Hit-Girl who stole every scene in the last installment.
