A trio of behind-the-scenes featurette for three summer movies today, because who doesn’t like behind-the-scenes featurettes? I know I do! Well not really, but I don’t really hate them, either. At their best, you get some new footage from some movies you’re looking forward to; at their worst, it’s good looking famous people telling you why you should go see their movie. Kinda like a talk show, minus the lame jokes.

Up first, here’s a lengthy 3-minute look at Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion”.

Co-starring Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa Leo, the sci-fi actioner is directed by “Tron: Legacy’s” Joseph Kosinski and opens this April 19, 2013.

Up next, here’s a new featurette for Antoine Fuqua’s “Olympus Has Fallen”, which coincidentally also co-stars Morgan Freeman and Melissa Leo, though I’m not sure if Leo is affecting the same ear-destroying Southern accent in this one, too.

Gerard Butler stars as the film’s John McClane character, and it co-stars Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Rick Yune, and Radha Mitchell. The film invades this March 22, 2013.

And finally, here’s yet another featurette for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, this time focusing on director Jon Chu, who is going from dance movies with paper thin “plot” to big-time action movie with paper thin “plot”. But hey, at least this time he’s giving us ninjas instead of a ridiculous rainbow cast “rebelling” against The Man by popping and locking.

The film stars Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, Ray Park, Joseph Mazzello, Arnold Vosloo, Elodie Yung, Walton Goggins, Jonathan Pryce, Byung-hun Lee, RZA, D.J. Cotrona, Matt Gerald, and battles those rascal Cobras this March 28, 2013.
