TRAILERS

To me, movie trailers should be like a girl on her first date:  

teasing, entertaining, and giving you a sense of her personality.

Then, there is this trailer many have waited for: 



Sigh.  It gave it all away: 

all three acts of the movie condensed into three minutes.  

Plus I hate who they chose for Lex Luthor and Doomsday looked like the corpse of the Michelin Man dug up.


Zack Snyder is usually good with his trailers, such as these two engaging trailers 

for movies that turned out to be bone-numbingly depressing:






There are two trailers for upcoming movies that I believe are crafted just right:



Spiderman and the Vision are in this movie, but they are not shown to save some surprises for the actual movie.



It doesn't show you Luke.  It teases and beckons you to go see the movie.  It is how a good trailer should be done.


Now, just for laughs:


What movies are you looking forward to 
this December and next year?

  1. Hi Roland - I love seeing the trailers of films I won't be seeing - at least I get a concept or perhaps the full story on occasions. The cinema in town (old fashioned) is having a late night showing of the new Star Wars ... Spectre has been doing well with numbers ...

    I think cinema is over til next year ... at least the sort I like. I saw two c/o our film society this week ... the Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel - a brilliant film ... so creative, full of one liners, and so so clever - about an amazing woman. Then Ballet Boys - a Norwegian documentary ... fascinating to see. But the Vreeland film totally captured me.

    Cheers Hilary

    1. For me, I have one movie left to see this year: the new Star Wars. But the Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel sounds fascinating. May your Christmas be happy and healing, :-)

  2. I hate when trailers give the movie away. What's the point of the trailer, then?!

    1. Exactly! I want just the flavor of the movie. :-)

  3. I hope there is a good comedy out there. I live in a vacuum. The older I get, the more there is out there and I have to pick with care. They ain't making no mo' time.

    1. THE INTERN looks to be a fun comedy, but I missed it at the theater what with my busy work schedule. I agree: time is so precious that we should not waste it on movies or other things that are empty. Happiest of holidays! :-)

  4. I have to say I think the Dawn of Justice rocks. Each one gives Wonder Woman just a little bit more. And as a big DC fan, I'm hoping this film will be an ensemble superhero film on the same level as the Marvel films.
    Sucker Punch did one thing right - it suckered a lot of people into seeing that horrible film.

    1. And yes, they do give away a lot. But you already knew the steps - they would fight each other then come together to fight the real villain. It's following the 52 comic series fairly close.

    2. Tastes are subjective -- which is why they have horse races!! :-)

      Jesse would make a good riddler but not Lex Luthor. Doomsday is ... not good (to me). And they picked strangely for Wonder Woman. The actress they had picked for the rejected TV pilot was much better to me (she portrays Mockingbird in AGENTS OF SHIELD)..

      We both agree on the terrible SUCKERPUNCH!! Thanks for visiting twice! :-) I feel special.

  5. I hate it when trailers give the whole movie away! Drives me crazy.

    Somehow I've gotten really out of the loop when it comes to new releases. I'm not interested in Star Wars, but that's the only upcoming release I've heard of lately.
