Trailers Before Dark Knight: Watchmen, Terminator Salvation, Body of Lies
Not that anyone needs any more encouragement to go see The Dark Knight, but trailers for Watchmen, Terminator Salvation, and Body of Lies will all show in front of the film next weekend. Now I'm sure I've just made everyone even more ridiculously excited for July 18th. My guess is that at least two of those won't show up online before they debut in theaters only, but who knows? Our friends over at ComingSoon have officially confirmed that the aforementioned trailers will show, which is good news considering it's usually a guessing game until someone confirms it at the midnight shows. One trailer we won't see: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In fact, those three (and a few more from other studios) are probably enough lest the feeble minds of geeks might explode from too much excitement.
Why am I sharing this news with you? Because I'm a big movie geek (like all of you) and although I've seen The Dark Knight already, even I'm excited to see these three trailers. Warner Brothers has got their shit together and if I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty damn sure that these three movies will shoot to the top of everyone's most anticipated lists soon after they debut. I'm most curious about Watchmen more than anything. I was on set last year, but I'm anxious to see some finished footage. I've got a very good fuzzy feeling that this trailer is going to make jaws drop. And of course I'm looking forward to seeing what McG has done with the Terminator franchise and I'm always up or Ridley Scott's latest production.
Watchmen is directed by Zack Snyder and due out in theaters on March 6th, 2009. Terminator Salvation is directed by McG and is due out in theaters on May 22nd, 2009. Body of Lies is directed by Ridley Scott and is due out in theaters on October 10th. Stay tuned for the online debut of all three trailers soon!
