Trailer Park Friday: Adventuresome Robots, Space Shenanigans, Retellings & More

It's chilly and rainy here today, and it looks like it's going to be a wet weekend. But we just discovered that The Lego Movie is on HBO, so I have a feeling a lot of things are going to be awesome despite the weather. Let's watch some videos to get this weekend started.

Big Hero 6 is already out in theatres and I've already seen it, but this hand-drawn trailer from Japan makes me want to see it another half a dozen times. Oh Baymax...

Ascension is a mini series that will air on Syfy over three nights in December. It's supposed to be a space opera that could potentially become a series if the mini series does well. It has a bit of an Downton Abbey in space with the class war element to it. It starts December 15.

Pitch Perfect is one of those comfort movies that I will always watch when I find it on television. Now there's going to be a sequel and the first trailer has come out. I don't know how it could match up to the first one, but I still am excited to see it.

Yet another faerie tale live-action movie is being released, this time for Cinderella. Doesn't look like it has much special about it to me, but it's pretty. It comes out March 13.

A new trailer for Insurgent was recently released and it looks like the second movie in the Divergent series might be as exciting as the second book was. It's also going to be full of greenscreen CGI, which could turn out not so great. It comes out March 20.

We started with an adorable robot and we end with a less adorable, but just as entertaining robot. This is Chappie, by Neill Blomkept, the guy who made District 9. This could be a really entertaining robot film even if Hugh Jackman has bad hair. I'm also becoming very fond of Dev Patel. This film comes out March 6, so I think it's going to be my new "must see" movie to look forward to.
