Geek Outpost’s Top 5 Trailers of 2014


[dropcap=small]A[/dropcap]s 2015 approaches, let’s take a look back at the top five movie trailers that make all of us at Geek Outpost glad that the new year is coming in fast.

5. Mad Max: Fury Road

Ok, this movie just looks bad ass. Who wouldn’t want to go see this post-apocalyptic Mad Max explosion-fest? Full of crazy costumes, stylized violence, and a desert setting that makes for what looks to be some great action sequences.

Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Zoë Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Written by George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, and Nick Lathouris. Directed by George Miller. In theaters May 15.

4. Kingsman: The Secret Service

Matthew Vaughn definitely knows what he’s doing when it comes to directing big budget action films. Kingsman follows a secret agency that is looking for new recruits. As the new blood get put through a series of tests, we get to come along for the action-packed ride.

Kingsman: The Secret Service stars Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Hamill, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Caine. Written by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, adapted from the comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Directed by Matthew Vaughn. In theaters February 13.

3. Jurassic World

In this continuation of the Jurassic Park series, we once again return to frolic amongst the dinosaurs because humans never learn. As we’re transported into a new theme park called Jurassic World we quickly find out that humans have genetically altered dinosaur DNA and have created an all new species. How could anything go wrong?

Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, and Jake Johnson. Written by Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow. Directed by Colin Trevorrow. In theaters June 12.

2. Avengers: Age of Ultron

Sensory overload! So many fantastic things to look forward to in this much anticipated sequel to The Avengers. The Hulkbuster suit, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, and of course ULTRON! James Spader could not have been a more perfect casting choice for that one. Judging by the trailer alone, Age of Ultron appears to be much darker in tone than the previous Avengers movie, though it’s still likely to have that same Marvel charm we all know and pay to love. Plus, did you see that scene with Iron Man fighting Hulk? Holy shit.

Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Idris Elba, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Andy Serkis, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and James Spader. Written and directed by Joss Whedon. In theaters May 1.

1. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

It’s really hard to watch this trailer and not have a smile on your face while you’re doing so. You don’t even need to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate how good this looks. J.J. Abrams is sure to give fans exactly what they want with this revisiting of familiar territory. Even though this short spot doesn’t give us much to go by in the sense of the plot, we get enough glimpses of Stormtroopers, landscapes, X-Wings, and newly shaped lightsabers to hold us over. Oh and did you guys see that part when the Millennium Falcon was all like “whoooosh” and it went all upside down and stuff!? That was awesome.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens stars John Boyega, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Andy Serkis, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, and Lupita Nyong’o. Written by J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan. Directed by J.J. Abrams. In theaters December 18.

I was born, I pooped myself a bunch, I cried, took my first step, and then at the young age of eight my dad showed me a little film by the name of Pulp Fiction. My mind was blown. From that moment I learned to appreciate film on another level. To put it simply, I love movies.
