Two big new trailers this week.

First, it’s the official trailer for Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent, starring Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet.

It’s due in UK cinemas on March 20.

San Andreas stars Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), Paul Giamatti and Archie Panjabi from The Good Wife.

It’s a disaster flick about a search and rescue helicopter pilot who has to make his way from LA to San Francisco to rescue his daughter after a huge earthquake.

The film’s due to be released in May.

Are you one of the 47 million people who have watched the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

Well now some of the names of the characters unveiled in the trailer have been revealed.

First of all the little droid seen rolling through shot is called BB-8.

The X-Wing pilot played by Oscar Issac is Poe Dameron. John Boeyga is Finn and Daisy Ridley is Rey. Finally the mysterious figure with the light sabre that sent the Internet into meltdown is Kylo Ren – but we still don’t know who’s playing him/her.

I find it intriguing that we’re not being told Finn or Rey’s surnames…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies clip

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies finally arrives in cinemas on Friday.

I’ve seen it and it pains me to say it, but I think it’s the weakest of all the Middle-earth films.

The first hour drags until it gets to the battle and then you see why Peter Jackson is an absolute master at action sequences.

And I admit, I spent the final 20 minutes in tears – Martin Freeman, who isn’t on screen that much, is fantastic!

Here’s a clip of Freeman’s Bilbo getting all feisty with Gandalf

Meet The Browns

Hands up, who else is excited to see Paddington?

The reviews have started trickling out and mostly they appear to be very positive.

I really can’t wait to see it now – it feels like I’ve been talking about for ages.

To whet all our appetites here’s a brand new clip of Paddington meeting the Brown family for the first time. Watch out for the lovely Lost And Found moment.

New Peanuts trailer

Have you seen the trailer for the new Peanuts Movie?

I love Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang and I’m really looking forward to seeing them on the big screen next year.

I was a bit worried about the use of 3D and CGI but I think the computer animation looks great so far – I just hope it remains at such a high level for the final film.

Now we just have to wait another 12 months to see it.

The Hobbit – final trailer

So here we are then, the final trailer for the final Hobbit film has been released. This is the last time we’ll ever see a trailer for one of Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth films and it makes me very sad.

I absolutely loved Lord of the Rings and always name the trilogy as my favourite film. I’ve enjoyed The Hobbit but it’s never real,y lived up to my expectations. I hope The Battle of the Five Armies gives the series a fitting send-off and actually the trailer looks pretty epic.

i both look forward to and dread seeing the final film – it really will be the end of a chapter for me, I started writing about LotR before Fellowship was even released and 14 years later it’s time to say goodbye…
