Trailer Park Friday: Animated Batman, Badass Scarlett Johansson & Book to Film Translations

Welcome back to Trailer Park Friday, the irregular feature here at Working for the Mandroid where I post a bunch of videos that have caught my eye. Some of them are trailers, some are clips from shows, some are animated shorts that are just awesome.

This is the 75th anniversary of the very first Batman comic, so DC is doing tons of Batman things this year. They recently had Bruce Timm, one of the guys behind the early 90s Batman: The Animated Series, create a two minute short in a similar style. Yay Batman!

Fernando is responsible for this next one. It's a Game of Thrones parody version of "Let It Go" from Frozen. Please note that there EPIC SPOILERS through the end of this last episode that aired last Saturday. Watch at your own risk.

When we went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which is brilliantly awesome, by the way), there were a couple of cool trailers. One of them was a movie I'd heard about, but didn't really know much about. This is Lucy and I hope it's as surprising and badass as the trailer makes it seem. The film comes out August 8.

This is the trailer for another book that I probably won't ever read because it's just going to make me horribly despressed. This is Chloe Moritz in If I Go, which comes out August 22.

Tom Peretta's The Leftovers is a book I've heard quite a lot of vague praise towards, so toss in Damon Lindeloft (one of the crazy guys behind Lost) as a producer and this is a new HBO series that I'm interested in despite this trailer being vague. The Leftovers starts on HBO on August 30.

And finally the trailer that I was scared to watch. The Giver is one of the books that turned me into an obsessive book reader and it's one of those touchstones that I have watch too much nostalgia towards. Despite not being in black and white, the trailer looks like maybe they didn't screw this adaptation up completely. The Giver comes out on August 15.

And that's all from me this week. Hopefully we'll return next week with more trailers and videos. In the meantime, what videos have caught your interest recently? Post link in the comments!
