The Movie Trailers 'Я' Us Thread

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Does anyone care? Do I care?



My first issue here is the cinematography. Like they shot the film through a bowl of soup.

looks alright to me. you never can tell with trailers. they're definitely playing up the shining connection, that's for sure. as you'd expect i suppose.
so where's the psychic cat?
wonder how they'll handle THAT cameo. or if they'll just ditch it completely.
btw, the twist ending is that this film isn't actually a sequel to The Shining... it's a sequel to Ready Player One.

NOS4A2 (by steve king jr.) is on AMC right now. those two books had a minor connection between them. it'd be funny if the adaptations did also.

Well it stars Brad Pitt, so its going to get more attention then it probably deserves. Looks like a mashup of the past few astronauts-in-peril-saving-the-world movies.

There were a few 'splosions. That might help a bit as well.

right, a big star means money for brainy science fiction movies, 'cause look how good "Interstellar" did, right? Pitt is not box office bank by any means, I could list his movies that were released and went away quietly but I don't feel like typing that much right now. "2001" is a great movie and one that deals with both science fiction and existentialism but hardly one that joe average 'merican appreciated then or now. "Arrival" and "BladeRunner 2049" were absolutely fantastic films that were also very smart and mature and nuanced in their approach to existential subject material and neither threatened to break any box office records. this looks to have more Hollywood elements than "2001" but it also looks to deal with some heavy duty ideas and concepts as well, which means it will be doomed to make less than a movie like "The Martian", an adequate but completely Hollywood, contrived movie for the masses with simplistic moralizations, 5th grade level science concepts, and almost zero existential content of any depth.

5th grade is a bit too advanced for Trump.

Here's a teaser for something called The Hunt:



It feels a little reminiscent of recent high-concept Most Dangerous Game thrillers like The Purge or Hotel Artemis. That said, the pedigree has my attention: co-written by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse and directed by Craig Zobel, who all worked together on The Leftovers, including one particularly bonkers episode in season 3.

the money shot at the end with him flying off in the vintage Tomcat.... that's some good shit right there.

This looks like it may follow the same damn plot as the original, but fuck it, looks like some good old fashion jingoistic fun. Wonder if they will embrace the gayness now that we're a woke country? :D

Yeah this is getting all the social media people all worked up today. It is really weird looking. This could go down as an all time Best-Worst movie thing.


Unless you're a furry. In which case, have a box of tissues nearby...


PS Fucking Rebel Wilson, I don't understand why this girl is still getting work. She is fucking horrible. HORRIBLE.

We like to make fun of Hollywood producers snorting coke and making bad decisions a lot. I'm pretty sure that's what actually happened here.

[snort] "Holy fuck, it's like the director of Les Miserables…" [snort] "...and Taylor Swift wants to be in this thing too!? It's like we're fucking printing money here!" [snort] "...this is going to be the Hollywood event of the fucking SEASON! Christmas, baby!"

I have no idea what everybody is talking about, looks pretty much what I thought a movie version of Cats (which I never saw, nor listend, nor paid much attention to) would look like.

I kind of like it, will check it out sooner or later, and hope it's a huge success that will lead to a live action The Cat Returns

I'm not sure if you're serious or not, but I can tell you that what made it so odd looking to me was the not-quite-CGI, not quite-costumes effect. Some of those close up face shots look amateurish, and the big complaint that I read most was the anthropomorphic choices (the girls have boobs, but the guys don't seem to have even a Ken Doll bulge). And there's a still shot out there of the main female dancer/performer doing a pirouette that makes you really question the digital animator's choice of where to attach the tail to her body :shock:

And that's the technical critique of mine. The hammy overacting Broadway style doesn't appeal to me personally, so it looks goofy as hell.

And it has Rebel Wilson in it. That alone should knock this thing down a few percentages on the Rotten Tomatoes-meter.

in all fairness, if they released a trailer for the Broadway version of Cats, it would probably be just as goofy and creepy. maybe that's why Broadway plays don't release trailers?

Dolomite is My Name

If a movie has all african american actors in it, is it racist to think it looks bad? Cause this looks really stupid. Maybe its Eddie... to me it looks like he's just doing a SNL skit.

kinda gives me a Boogie Nights vibe. this film could go either way.
