Wednesday Evening Trailer Roundup


In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on that plane?

Denzel Washington is an incredible actor in these sorts of roles. The plot looks solid, and the trailer features “Gimme Shelter“, so you know it should be decent.

The non-teaser was just posted for The Bourne Legacy:

The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.

Jeremy Renner came out of nowhere a couple of years ago, and he’s doing some great work in action movies these days. Here’s hoping he does a little more drama in the future. Bourne should be good, though.

Finally, this is an excellent fan-made trailer to a potential Star Trek sequel.
