Trailers: “Speed Racer,” “Dark Matter,” “Stop-Loss”

I’m not ready to commit to an entire movie for the weekend, so I thought I’d check out some trailers instead.

First, the new Speed Racer trailer surfaced this week. If Christina Ricci and Susan Sarandon weren’t enough reason to see this one, this trailer has convinced me that it’s worth the ticket price. Moviefone.com desribes it as “Andy Warhol meets the Jetsons.” Nice!



(Watch it in hi-def here.)

Next, I hadn’t even heard of Dark Matter, starring Meryl Streep, Aidan Quinn and Liu Ye.

The film tells the story of a Chinese science student who can’t quite cope with the pressures of American academia.



Dark Matter premieres April 11.

Finally, Kimberly Peirce‘s new film Stop-Loss premieres March 28. If I didn’t know Peirce was the director of Boys Don’t Cry, I don’t think I’d be able to tell from the trailer — it looks like a very different sort of movie.



The official website has a “make your own trailer” feature, though, if you want to try to create something more Peirce-esque. Or if you just want to waste some time on a Friday afternoon!
