Trailers of the Week: 6/23/13

When heading to any movies, you know you're going to see some trailers. Whether you like it or not, you can't escape the following previews. Then again, who say watching some trailers was a bad thing?  Some on  trailers on the web can make film look quite appealing. In this case, we will be looking at which trailers were the highlights of the week. They may not get the best reception in theaters; but these previews are a must see for the time being.

The Wolf of Wall Street
By watching the trailer, it may surprise you The Wolf of Wall Street is the latest from director Martin Scorsese.  This drama features Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill and tells the true story of Jordan Belfort. It is hard to get a read on the trailer (enjoyable as may be), but this previews screams Scorsese and could be a must see when it hits theaters later this year.

Perhaps not the best trailer to show off your film, but seeing something on the new animated feature from Disney is still great. If this preview is any indication, we will be getting humor from this wintry film. Though hopefully there is more on Frozen in the months to come.

The Lego Movie
What seems preposterous turns out to be one of the best trailers this week. The preview to The Lego Movie features the right comedy and the proper animation. It might be based on a toy-line, but the trailer to The Lego Movie makes it look like a must see film for 2014.

The Spectacular Now
Though Shailene Woodley will not be in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, you can still see her this summer in The Spectacular Now. The trailer shows off the film's achievements at this years Sundance film festival; and features the tense moments in this new drama.  Hopefully, the praise it has received on the festival circuit is enough to make The Spectacular Now a must see for 2013.

The last preview is yet another biographical film. Despite that having Aston Kutcher playing Steve Jobs is questionable, there is no denying that the trailer to Jobs is intriguing . The preview captures the suspense and the life of the Apple creator; which seems weird, but what can you expect from biographical drama? The film hits theaters this summer and we will see if this drama can do the life of Steve Jobs justice. 

Got a different trailer that stands out to you? Feel free to express what you thought this week's best previews are below.
