GAME TIME!!! Let's Guess the Trailer...

As we all know, the key to a GREAT action movie trailer (read...cliché action movie trailer) is a very intense sequence at the end of the trailer, usually set to techno music, in which a bunch of crazy images are thrown at the retinas of the viewer. They get your adrenaline pumping, and supposedly get you pumped up to see the movie. Movie geeks typically get off on examining every frame of these sequences to figure out stuff like... "Who plays the human/cyborg Christian Bale must face down in Terminator: Salvation?"

So, to honor those movie maniacs (and in an attempt to generate more comments on this here blog) I have devised a little game. I present to you... "LET'S GUESS THE TRAILER!!"

If you can tell me which big budget action movie I stole each of these screen grabs from, you'll win... uh... my respect. Which, for anyone who's seen Jurassic Park, means that a contest where respect is on the line typically ends in the loser getting a few hundred volts of electricity through their body. And you don't want that.

Let's get started.


(This grab isn't from an "action" movie per se.)
SPECIAL NOTE: All of these films are scheduled for release in Spring/Summer '09. If you need a little help, you can find every one of them at the Apple - Movie Trailers website. As of the time of this post, they are all in the first four pages on the main page.

I know the first one is Fast and Furious and the second is Watchmen, but I'm a lost for the rest.

I will guess that Trailer 3 is also from Watchmen.

Trailer 1 is 'Fast and Furious.'
Trailer 2 is 'Watchmen.'

danast earns 50% of my respect.

HOWEVER, Trailer 3 is not 'Watchmen.' That may look like The Comedian's body falling hard on some concrete, but I assure you it is a completely different object hitting the pavement...from a completely different movie. Want hints for the last two and the bonus?

Trailer 3 is Terminator Salvation, trailer 4 is Star Trek. The bonus is... I have no idea.

VERY nice work Bruce. You nailed 'em.

Hint for the bonus...

That's Ali Larter's backside you're looking at.
