by Phil Wheat

Welcome to the seventh installment of Trailer Park, our regular look at the latest trailers to hit the interwebs. This “volume” is packed with trailers for a whole host of new movies including: Interstellar, Edge of Tomorrrow, Calvary, How To Make Money Selling Drugs, Devil’s Due, Pompeii 3D, 300: Rise of an Empire, and The Devil’s Bargain.

Interstellar

Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Edge of Tomorrrow

The epic action of ‘Edge of Tomorrrow’ unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again… and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Calvary

After being told he will be murdered in one week’s time Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson) finds himself with seven days to determine his would be killer and put his affairs in order. Prevented by the “seal of confessional” from going to the police, Father Lavelle opts to engage with and tries to understand his small minded and morally scurrilous parishioners with the hope of dissuading the one amongst them intent on his death.

How To Make Money Selling Drugs

A provocative glimpse into the lives of those on both sides of the ‘war on drugs.’ Through rare interviews with 50 Cent, Eminem, The Wire producer David Simon, Woody Harrelson and Susan Sarandon, as well as infamous drug kingpin ‘Freeway’ Rick Ross, a unique and telling perspective is delivered.

Devil’s Due

Devil’s Due tells the story of Zach and Samantha, a newlywed couple who experience a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon and shortly after find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. When Samantha starts showing odd behavior, she and Zach initially write it off to nerves, but as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.

Pompeii 3D

Set against the backdrop of the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., POMPEII 3D is the epic story of Milo (Kit Harington – Game of Thrones), a young slave-turned-gladiator who must fight to save Cassia (Emily Browning – Sucker Punch), the woman he loves, from the clutches of a corrupt Roman senator (Kiefer Sutherland – 24) before the city is destroyed.

300: Rise of an Empire

Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. “300: Rise of an Empire” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

The Devil’s Bargain

It’s 1974 and Earth is about to be obliterated by a massive asteroid. Adi (Jonnie Hurn) and his young wife Ange (Chloe Farnworth), haunted by memories of the death of their son, journey to the idyllic rural setting where he was conceived, determined to shed clothes, inhibitions and psychological traumas before the planet is destroyed forever. But the arrival of Luca (Dan Burman), a charismatic and mysterious young photographer, turns what’s left of their world upside-down and the horror to come is of biblical proportions.
