August is here and what that means for us movie-goers is one final summer month to enjoy a jam-packed selection of movies. The studios are busily trying their best to sell you on what they have to offer, while July and June’s leftovers are still holding somewhat strong.
Two films that are looking to take a slice of the August pie are Neill Blomkamp‘s new original piece of sci-fi Elysium and WB’s R-rated raunchy comedy We’re the Millers.
Elysium is my most-anticipated film of August, following Blomkamp’s impressive directorial debut District 9. The film stars Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley and looks like the perfect blend of original and genre-pushing sci-fi with Hollywood studio-level action and excitement.
Check out this final extended trailer of Elysium and make sure to see the film when it opens on August 9th, 2013.
The next film up for discussion is WB’s latest R-rated comedy We’re the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis. I had a chance to catch this film last week and while my review can’t go live until release day (August 7th) I can say that it’s funny, but slightly front-loaded with its laughs.
This latest red band trailer sells the film pretty well. Check it out below:
Which film do you plan on seeing this weekend?
