Trailers Weekly: ‘Jack Reacher,’ ‘Why Stop Now,’ ‘Rise of the Guardians,’ ‘Taken 2,’ and ‘Lawless’


Trailers Weekly is a feature in which we bring you the most popular and talked about trailers of the week. Sharing trailers is a classic viral practice, and trailers are still the most mainstream way for people to learn about movies. This week provided us with so many trailers, so of course we will include our favorite ones this week, which includes Jack Reacher, Why Stop Now, Rise of the Guardians, Taken 2, and Lawless.

Jack Reacher
Tom Cruise looks as though he is trying to emulate Driver in Drive. He looks handsome, he drives a very cool car, and he brutally beats anyone who gets in his way. Jack Reacher also stars Werner Herzog, Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins.

Why Stop Now
Jessie Eisenberg pretty much plays the same character from 30 Second or Less in Why Stop Now. The character he plays is in a precarious situation that forces him to buy his mother (Melissa Leo) into drug rehab from a drug dealer (Tracy Morgan) who is out of drugs before his piano recital.

Rise of the Guardians
This is the second trailer for Rise of the Guardians. The film follows the people who makes everyones lives a bit more magical. These heroes consist of Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Toothy Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Sandman (Tom Kenny), and Jack Frost (Chris Pine) coming together to defeat the villainous Pinch.

Taken 2
Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is just trying to have a normal family vacation with his family. But when one of your victims turns out to be the father (Rade Serbedzij) of an Albanian mob, it can be anything but. So now Mills and his wife (Famken Janssen) must rely on their daughter (Maggie Grace) to help them from being TAKEN.

Ladies will appreciate this one since Lawless stars Shia LeBeouf and Tom Hardy. Both of them play as brothers trying to run an alcohol business during the time of prohibition. Lawless also stars Guy Pierce and Gary Oldman.
