Three Must See Trailers from this week – Lego, Crystal Fairy and Jobs

It has been a HUGE week, at work, at home and at play, so unfrotunately I have not been able to keep up with all the amazing trailer coming out. I had a list of 6 I wanted to share but narrowed it down to the 3 best. I shared a special Anchorman 2 trailer throughout the week on Twitter and FB so ruled that one out. I recommend in your own time sussing trailers for the new Riddick trailer, the latest Hobbit Trailer (yes a new one) and the trailer for Olivia Wilde’s Drinking Buddies. And does anyone know if the trailer for “Free Birds” is the Angry Birds trailer? If not it will be the B grade rip off one 🙂

But the three that got me excited the most, and I have listed in order towards the best, that I want to share on the site are:

Three Trailers of the Week on Salty – CRYSTAL FAIRY AND THE MAGICAL CACTUS


Easy why I love this one – it is a carefree roadtrip movie with drugs – basically a journey back to my youth 🙂

Jamie (Cera) is a boorish, insensitive American twentysomething traveling in Chile, who somehow manages to create chaos at every turn. He and his friends are planning on taking a road trip north to experience a legendary shamanistic hallucinogen called the San Pedro cactus. In a fit of drunkenness at a wild party, Jamie invites an eccentric woman — a radical spirit named Crystal Fairy (Hoffmann) — to come along. What is meant to be a devil-may-care journey becomes a battle of wills as Jamie finds himself locking horns with his new traveling companion. But on a remote, pristine beach at the edge of the desert, the magic brew is finally imbibed, and the true adventure begins.

This one has just finished the U.S. Festival circuit and gets a U.S. release on July 12th but no international sales or release information available online as yet.



Numero Dos:



Three Trailers of the Week on Salty - THE LEGO MOVIE POSTER
Three Trailers of the Week on Salty – THE LEGO MOVIE


No one will dislike this film and it will be one of the biggest movies of all time, it is for everyone ever born to enjoy 🙂 I mean seriously – the things you can do with a Lego movie are endless and I see a franchise here beyond comprehension. Just like the games every movie can have a spin off.

An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together.

Releases April 3, 2014 and voiced by such people as Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, Chris Pratt and Charlie Day.

This one just looks epic – it is the Hollywood glossy tale of Steve Jobs and Apple. It looks Epic, it has Ashton Kutcher doing an amazing job portraying Jobs – however – the film looks a lot like a little indy film made for TV known as Pirates of Silicon Valley – although this TV movie was about both the history of Apple and Microsoft and their rivalry. Loved that show. This looks the same but with a bigger budget.

Oddly online this is listed as a June 13 release in Australia – odd because this date has already passed 🙂 No idea when this is out, the Hoyts website does not list it as a “Coming Soon” film this year, but this could just be due to negotiated release with distribution not yet set at this stage.
