This week is a special week. Usually I go through all the trailers for the week and find the one I think does the best at selling a movie and a concept. This week however is also the week of Comic Con, and with that, we got a whole lot of them, so this week I’m giving you guys a top three of the week. Enjoy!
3 – Kingsman : The Golden Circle (Trailer #2)
2 – Blade Runner 2049 (Trailer #2)
1 – Bright (Tailer #1)
What we have here, are three very different trailers, but also very similar. All three of these movies are slated for later in the year and they all have pretty big expectations. Starting with the newest trailer for Kingsman 2, we get a lot more of the story line here, and a considerable amount of action which makes one wonder just how much can they pack into this sequel. Adding a secondary group of heroes, the Statesmen of America, allows the movie to add another level in it casting, and it does so handily with some big names as well as fan favourites. This trailer shows that the movie doesn’t plan on losing any of its signature style, while ratcheting everything about up to an 11.
Then at the number 2 spot, we have another sequel, this one however, considerably longer in the making. The newest trailer for Blade Runner 2049, like the Kingsman trailer, gives us a much better look at the storyline the movie itself will be taking us on. Erie, tense, suspenseful and gripping, this trailer seeks to give us a tease of what the entire movie is likely to be like in terms of tone and scope, while also teasing out some of the newer characters and their motivations.
Finally we come to bright, the only movie here that doesn’t have a huge planned theatrical release as its another in the ever growing stable of Netflix made and made for movies. Featuring the likes of Will Smith and Joel Edgerton (under some heavy makeup), bright is the latest from the mind of Max Landis and directed by Fury’s David Ayer, the movie gives us a look at a super realistic take on the idea of a world filled with goblins and ghouls, fairies and elves, and all manner of magical creatures. This first feature trailer also like the trailers before it, gives us a very good idea of where this movie plans to go, and it will be something to see if all the parts that make up this movie can come together and give us a great movie in the end.
There are some other great trailers that dropped this week, but I only went with three here, as these three left a large impression on me, but I will give a shoutout to the new trailer for The Shape of Water, and Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. Both excellent and intriguing trailers that I’m sure we will see come back on here soon enough.
