Busy Life… but the Trailers look good!

We’re keeping busy out and about at the Comparative Geeks HQ, although we do have tickets already for Saturday for Wonder Woman… Anyway, haven’t had much time for writing, nor for consuming much media to write about…

Although, we have had time for trailers – and there have been several good looking ones in the last few days!

First, the new movie from Edgar Wright, which just makes me happy on a fundamental level… and then it also looked awesome: Baby Driver.

I’m annoyed that this movie is not currently in my plans for seeing it in theaters, and it’s competing with a number of other good looking movies in July and August!

Next up: one we would totally have done a LitFlix for, Murder on the Orient Express.

That cast! I suppose the proper way to do this is an ensemble cast anyway, but they seem to have pulled that off pretty well. Probably just one we’ll rent, but still looks good!

I think I’ll just link to the red-band trailer for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, but it made me realize that of course Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson needed to make a movie together. I think that this movie makes sense as a result of that.

I guess if I’m linking to movies I’d rather not embed, The Little Hours had us laughing at its debauchery and ridiculousness right up until it said at the end it’s based on The Decameron, when I said oh, of course it is.

And finally, one that looked like an Oscar contender sort of movie, but one that we might actually be interested in seeing (a bit of a rarity): The Mountain Between Us.

Basically, I’m good with more Idris Elba in my life. Hey, we should finish watching Luther

How about you, any trailers catch your fancy lately? Any good finds here? Let me know in the comments below!
