Weekly movie trailer roundup: guys running around looking scared


Two new trailers were released this week for TEXAS KILLING FIELDS and THE WOMAN IN BLACK, and just as last week’s trailers seemed to fit into a theme (kids and babies), so does this week’s: men. Scared men, to be exact. To be even more exact, scared men running around trying to figure out what’s scaring them. First up is TEXAS KILLING FIELDS, which was directed by a chick! And yet this is not a chick flick, so already it’s got a lot going for it. It also stars some badass chicks, like Jessica Chastain and Chloe Moretz, but like I said before this week’s theme is men, because the trailer pretty much just shows two dudes, Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (who looks like the love child of Javier Bardem and Robert Downey Jr.). The only time a woman shows up it’s to help the dudes or scream her head off because some dude is trying to kill her. In fact, with all the dudes running and slamming car doors and chicks screaming for their lives and music crescendoing, all I managed to understand about this movie is that it’s got something to do with a scary field and an old, green Pontiac.
