Trailer Park Friday: The Maze Runner, The Giver, The Boxtrolls & More

This week has been crazy in real life, so it's nice to escape to the interwebs where tons of movie trailers have come out. This week had several highlights including the first footage from The Maze Runner and The Giver, some pretty crazy new footage for Maleficent, Martin Freeman pretending to be from Minnesota in Fargo and more.

First up is The Giver because if they screw this movie up, my 8-year-old self might figure out a way to travel into the future/now and kick some people in the shins. The Giver comes out August 15.

I wasn't the biggest fan of Fargo, but I'm not a huge fan of the Coen brothers. I will take a chance on the new television version because there is a hobbit in it pretending to be from the midwest. It starts on FX on April 15.

I knew Maleficent was a faerie, but I didn't expect her to have crazy bat wings. I haven't come to a conclusion on whether this movie looks potentially pretty cool or just bad. Maleficent comes out May 30.

Earth to Echo is a Relativity sci-fi film I hadn't heard of until yesterday. It looks like it could be an interesting smaller film in the middle of all the blockbusters. It comes out July 2.

I have a confession - I still haven't read The Maze Runner. I've long since lost count of how many times it's been recommended to me, so I must get to it before the movie comes out September 19.

In my opinion Laika has never done wrong. Coraline is one of those movies I'm dying to share with my niece and nephew when they get older. Their next film is called The Boxtrolls and it looks like it will be awesome as well. It comes out September 26 and has a great voicecast.

 

I think that may be the max of potential greatness I can cram into a Trailer Park Friday. What trailers am I missing? What movies are you most excited about for this summer?
