Shingeki No Kyojin “Attack On Titan” Live Action Official Trailer
Even though this is a Japanese release only and most likely will only be viewed here in the states via DVD or theatrical release only if the movies are huge hits in Japan much like some of the Toho Godzilla films were. I had to do a post on it simply because it looks like it can be a hit and also it is my sons favorite show and manga series.
It's always is a daunting undertaking to do one of these type of films and is a pretty epic undertaking to put an Manga/Anime concept into a live action film. Especially one of this magnitude. Most likely some of the faithful will be disappointed just simply because of the obvious when it comes to the type of films. It just never really translates well when any material that originates from any kind of graphic book form to live action cinema. Still from the trailers there are glimpse that this may and really has a good chance to reach a wider audience that has not been introduced to the Attack on Titan series which always is a plus in any industry.

Plot from shingekinokyojin.wikia.com/wiki/Attack_on_Titan_(Live-Action_Movie)
That day, humanity remembered... More than one hundred years ago, Titans suddenly appeared. The majority of the human race was eaten and civilization collapsed. The survivors of the war built three walls to prevent the invasion of the Titans, and kept the peace by securing the living area inside. In one hundred years, the wall has not been broken... until this day.

Jurassic World – Official Global Trailer
Lets just say curiosity peeked on this one. Trailer 2 or the official Global Trailer to Jurassic World hints at a more sinister dinosaur who can communicate and command others of her kind. One that is a mutant type cross bred dino the size and strength of a T-rex but has more dexterity . One that has intelligence and has a human quality for destruction like hunting for sport. One that seems to want to rule them all and the humans are in the way.
As usual Legendary has been put in charge of a need to reboot franchise just as they did with Godzilla and Batman. You know the ones that previous attempts have butchered to the point that no one would really want to see again. They look like they may have found the formula of resurrection and may succeed with his one if the movie is any way as good as this trailer is. Well on June 12th we will surely find out.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens Official Trailer #2
Openning in theaters December 2015
Not much to say about this trailer except why does it have to be released in December and not now ? There is a wow factor in there that for this skeptic of whether it would be good enough to compete with the earlier films of the epic series has me now salivating for the movie. Yea Disney is behind and yea JJ Abrahams also has his hands in it. But in thinking back Disney has done a wonderful job of letting Marvel flourish and JJ has proven he can do some great things in the Sci fi realm as long as he does not over do and change much of the dynamics of the story . Just think Star Trek 1 and 2 . If he sticks with the story arc of the Lucas era then expanded on by the faithful writers he will be just fine if he stretches into his own image he may run into fan trouble. Thats just my opinion though. I am hoping that the tone and the feel will be very much like the original trilogy which this trailer seems to indicate and not the overproduced second trilogy prequel.

In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, specifically Pac-Man, with the Earth being him, and the aliens being the ghosts. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults, including Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. President William Cooper (Kevin James) calls upon his best friend since childhood, former 1980s arcader champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), who is now a home theater installer and had a previous relationship with William's wife (Jane Krakowski). After support from Professor Iwatani (Denis Akiyama) to seduce Pac-Man with a pitcher of Kool-Aid turns to him pixelating, Brenner decides to lead a team of retrogamers (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens with various technology similar to those used in games.
