Short movies for short attention spans…

cocktails and movies trailer tapSometimes we at Cocktails and Movies don’t have time for a whole cocktail. So we do shots and thankfully there are trailers out there for us to watch while doing shots. Every week, the studios drop new trailers for us and we do our best to watch them for you and show you the best of what’s out there.

The “Trailer Tap” – previews for short attention spans

cocktails and movies trailer tapWelcome once more to Cocktails and Movies’ Trailer Tap: the column where the best part of the movies becomes your prospectus to movie-going wonderment in the coming months! Before anyone asks, we have not been bought out or bribed by Warner Brothers. They just happened to drop three big trailers for Summer tentpoles in IMAX 3D, seeing as they have kind of a big movie releasing this weekend. We’ll leave it to you to figure out which movie that is, but we should have a review for it this weekend.

Happy Thursday, Mixers! You know the Thursday drill! You show up, you watch five trailers and read me rant about why I’m so picky with some movies and so doe eyed over others. The funny part is, I never know which ones will end up on what side. In fact, two of this week’s picks surprised me and actually managed to sell their respective films to me without a hitch. Of course, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Which means you know exactly what I’m going to say about A Haunted House 2. Anyways, sit back and grab the popcorn. The best part of the movies is here…

Welcome To The Jungle

Studio: Cinedigm

Release Date: 02/07/14

Concept: A corporate retreat in the jungle becomes a comedic version of Lord of the Flies, as Jean Claude Van Damme leads a group of 9-5 office types in an exercise dedicated to unleashing the beast within.  

Presentation/Spoilers: The trailer looks like it’s pulling from all over the film, and borders on giving all of the gags away. Knowing this type of movie, they’re  either saving the best/raunchiest gags for the film, or they’re giving it all away and we’ll have to suffer with weak tea subplots until each of these moments arrives. 

Anticipation Factor: Moderate. It does look like fun, and Van Damme is cashing in on Action and Comedy gold these days, but this could go either way.
