With CinemaCon in full swing in Las Vegas, over the past 24 hours I’ve managed to see the first footage from a lot of upcoming movies from Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios.  Yesterday, Paramount unveiled the first teaser trailers for Hercules and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a lot of footage from Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Today, Universal showed attendees footage from Luc Besson’s Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken (which looks like it’s going to be an awards contender), Fifty Shades of Grey, Fast & Furious 7, Minions, Dumb and Dumber To, a CGI-only trailer with voice over for Jurassic World, and a lot more.  Like previous years, Universal’s presentation really impressed me with the wide variety of great looking movies.  Hit the jump for more.

Shortly after the presentation, I recorded a video blog with Devin Faraci from Badass Digest where we discussed all the footage and gave our thoughts on what we saw.  For those wondering, we started with Paramount (Hercules, Turtles, TF4) and then got into the Universal stuff.

Like you’ll hear me say in the video below, Lucy was a real surprise today as it looked very cool and unlike anything you’ve seen before.  While Luc Besson has been hit or miss recently, I’m really hoping this one is great.  In the film, Johansson stars as a reluctant drug mule who is transformed into an incredible fighter capable of clairvoyance, telekinesis, and an ability to disregard pain and emotion when one of the designer drugs enters her system.
