Trailer Round-Up – 2/8/15

Normally, I try to keep up with posting trailers as they come out.  But since my schedule has changed subtly enough over the last few months, I cannot seem to keep up as much as I would like.  So I’ve decided to change the format of my Trailer Round-Ups.  Instead, TRUs will be towards the end of the week, compiling trailers for that have come out during that week.  Still, I will try to post trailers I want to discuss their own post if I can.  That’s the plan anyway, let’s see how well that holds up.  Without further ado, let’s get to this TRU!  In this TRU, Chris Pratt runs with velociraptors, the minions head to villian-con, SHIELD Agent Simmons explores a flooded city, Dom and Brian protect their family, Sam Raimi remakes a 1980s classic, and Paul Blart heads to Vegas.  To jump to a specific trailer, click on it’s link below.
