Trailer Talk: FEBRUARY 2017 – It’s All Around Action Month!
February is usually a slow month for movie releases. Although last year we got ‘Deadpool‘ around this time. So let’s take a look at the most exciting films releasing in February 2017.
Share which movie you’re most excited for in the comments below.
‘The Lego Batman Movie’ – February 10th
After the massive unexpected success of ‘The Lego Movie’, comes its full length feature film follow up, ‘The Lego Batman Movie’. Lego’s success story is kind of weird and varied. With its resurgence of doing full on Lego versions of trailers and scenes from movies, it’s become weirdly successful. From all the trailers, the Batman version looks hilarious and amazingly funny. They’re able to do things with the concept of a lego world, that may otherwise not work in any other animated format.
‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ – February 10th
The out-of-nowhere action storm that was ‘John Wick’ returns with a sequel and it’s the most glorious thing this month. The newly patented style of ‘Gun-Fu’ action choreography is mind blowing and amazing. Keanu Reeves returns to form on this franchise which, I hope continues on. Reeves’ commitment to doing his own stunts, coupled with a story that is simple yet effective is really what makes ‘John Wick’ stand out from other action movies. The sequel also marks the reunion of Reeves and his ‘The Matrix’ co-star, Laurence Fishburne.
‘The Great Wall’ – February 17th
While the first teaser was a cheesy weird look at this movie, the full official trailer reveals a lot more story and action. Looking like a very generic fantasy action movie, Matt Damon brings some gravitas to the role, but other than that, this looks quite possibly like a skip this month. There’s also something to be said about a movie set in China starring a white hero. I’m just saying.
Let me know which movie you’re most looking forward to in February of 2017.
