New Trailers – The Kings of Summer, Now You See Me, The Way Way Back, Elysium

It’s been a busy week for movie trailers! We’ve already dissected the latest trailers for Catching Fire, Man of Steel, and Star Trek: Into Darkness, but here are some you may have missed.

The Kings of Summer

“Three teenage friends, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land.”

Reasons to Watch:  Every time I watch this trailer it leaves me smiling.  I mean, who didn’t want to run away to the woods and live in a fort?!  Heck, I still do!  Who’s with me?  Also, great cast featuring Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Allison Brie, as well as newcomers Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, and Moises Arias.

Now You See Me

“FBI agents track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money.”

Reasons to Watch:  The magical illusions promise to be fun to watch on screen.  The cast is pretty incredible too.

The Way, Way Back

“Over the course of his summer break, a teenager comes into his own thanks in part to the friendship he strikes up with one of the park’s managers.”

Reasons to Watch:  This movie made a splash at Sundance.  It’s a great coming of age tale, and Steve Carell plays a jerk.  It should be good.

Elysium

“Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.”

Reasons to Watch:  The trailer doesn’t give away too much, but there’s this:
