Kong: Skull Island Trailer 2 is For Your Health

I can already see the Batman v. Superman style problem Warner Bros. stablemate Legendary Pictures is going to have to grapple with before Godzilla vs. Kong out on May 29th, 2020, a problem hinted at in this trailer, which suggests why two ideologically passive monsters, would seek out and fight one another. “Kong’s a pretty good…

Hollywood Misuse of Trailer Card Captions

There is a small unaddressed issue in movie trailers for as many as they have. Many use the Title Card captions incorrectly, failing to capitalize or use name recognition. Often trailer editors use the same film as a marker of success too often thinking they can fool the audience with the same film every time…

January’s Anticipated Film – “Blackhat”

Why we’re excited: The director of such acclaimed film’s as “Heat”, which had the best Al Pacino and Robert De Niro pairing, “Collateral”, showcasing Tom Cruise’s best performance and Jamie Foxx’s best supporting work, and “The Insider” for which he was academy award nominated 3 of 4 times (the other was as a producer on “The Aviator”)….

What Do You Think? – Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Trailer

There are certain famous people whose significance I struggle to explain. If you were unfamiliar with Shakespearian Theatre and were to ask me who Kenneth Branagh is, it feels under-served to just say he played a role in Harry Potter or directed “Thor” or does both in this movie: “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit”. If you…

What did you think? Need For Speed: Official Trailer

And another video game rolls in. As a fan of both mediums I am cautiously optimistic for this title as the trailer surprisingly has some style to it (generic looking title card aside). Its well cut and sound mixed, doesn’t give too much away, good music choice. Most importantly It has momentum! As far as…

What Do You Think? The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Trailer

UPDATE: New trailer added copyright problem fixed (at least for now) Ben Stiller stars and surprisingly directs this ambitious adaptation of James Thurbold’s short-story of the same name. A previous film adaptation in 1947 starred Boris Karloff with actor Danny Kaye as the title character, and the story has had several stage interpretations but as…

What did you think? – Catching Fire Trailer 2

There are two things I would like to say about this trailer, it gives away far too much clocking in at 2 minutes and 50 seconds. There’s something to be said about a trailer that leaves some things to the imagination, whereas this one doesn’t, it gives away at least 3 important plot points which…

What Do You Think?: Elysium

My most anticipated film this year is this original sci-fi tale. A good cast with Matt Damon leading, a consistent actor who never truly outshines his material. His best performances have been: The Departed, The Informant!, The Bourne Identity, and Good Will Hunting, but what is Matt Damon being himself and what is truly his…

What Do You Think?: Iron Man 3 Trailer

Its not too hard to raise the stakes after The Avengers; if you make a personal story with a more looming uncertain threat you’ll have a winner. And from the looks of it, with a new director and style at the helm, Iron Man 3 could be the winner that 2 was not.
