Oblivion – International Trailer

This is the second generic — albeit not as generic as the first — trailer for the future-dystopia-sci-fi adventure directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy), based on his own graphic novel of the same name. While the first trailer had a definite WALL-E vibe, this one just feels like a re-hashed Matrix: did Morgan Freeman steal those glasses directly from Lawrence Fishburne?

Also of note: is this a Tom Cruise action movie trailer where they aren’t showing Tom Cruise running? Outrageous!

Oblivion strolls to Australian cinemas on April 11.

The Internship – Trailer

Okay, let’s be honest here: this looks terrible. This looks shockingly terrible, and it’s sad to see how far a duo that I used to find somewhat entertaining — in Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn — have fallen.

Most of the jokes here are about how old they are, despite the fact they are dudes in their 40’s who could easily pass off as mid-30’s. They can nonchalantly recite all the Terminator films (series spanning 1984-2009), yet are clueless as to whom Professor Xavier is (series spanning 2000-2011, first appearance in 1963). The jokes could have possibly made more sense with an older starring cast, such as Jack Nicholson and Alan Alda (but probably not).

Directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel), and co-starring Rose Byrne and John Goodman (both appearing well below standard), The Google Movie — aka The Internship — opens in Australia on June 13.
