We haven’t done a Trailer Tuesday in a while! So let’s get right down to it with space battles, some dystopias and a tearjerker.
First: Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s out already so you can go see it any time you like! It’s the newest installment in the Marvel universe and we get introduced to a whole gang of new characters we’ve never seen before. And it’s in space! With awesome ships, battles and creatures. If you watched to the end of the credits of Thor: The Dark World (which is something you should know to do if you’re a Marvel movie fan!) you may recognise The Collector in GotG. This movie is a lot of fun, but you definitely don’t need to be a Marvel fan to enjoy it. If you read the comics though (which we have in our collection!) there are plenty of insider goodies for you to spot in this film too.
Following on from the President-Snow-addressing-the-Capitol teasers, the new teaser trailer for Mockingjay Part 1 has been released! It features Katniss leading the rebels against the Capitol, and I expect a lot of tears to be shed watching this movie. If you’d like to refresh your memory of what happened in this book, you can reserve it here. Mockingjay Part 1 will be released on November 20th 2014. See you at the premiere!
Next up is the newest trailer for The Maze Runner starring Dylan O’Brien who you may recognise from Teen Wolf. It follows Thomas, who wakes up in a glade surrounded by a colossal maze. He has no memories of his previous life or how he got to the glade except for his own name. Each day boys from the glade venture into the maze to try and find an escape, but the gates close every night to keep the horrific Grievers at bay. If the maze “runners” aren’t back by the time the gates close at night, well, “no one survives a night in the maze”. Thomas joins the runners, determined to find an escape from the maze, but is he ready for the truth? This one looks like it is going to be epic on the big screen and I can’t wait to see it! Check out the trailer below and read the book while you’re waiting for the movie, if you haven’t already.
And finally is If I Stay, an adaptation of the book of the same name by Gayle Forman. Mia is a talented seventeen-year-old cellist with family, friends and a boyfriend. But a car crash sends Mia into a coma, and she has a sort of out-of-body experience observing the lives of those she loves. Mia has to decide whether she should stay, or go forever. Check out the book here and keep the tissues handy!
