Trailer Week ™ continues!
Also, this is the second trailer to drop today that happens to be a second trailer for their respective film. Or sort of. The last trailer for It was its teaser. This time it seems to be its final trailer. Which is a great choice to not have another one. We don’t need to see more trailers, we just need the film released.
I’m ready to be terrified, are you? Let’s watch the trailer now.

If you missed out, I wrote about Ad Astra before, and I wrote how it’s one of my most anticipated of the year. So a few days ago, I heard there was going to be a new trailer and I was excited. Until this morning when it dropped, and that brings us to our morning plight.

Ah, trailer time is always a good time. And with San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, you know it will just keep coming. And for the third time today, a new trailer has arrived at our door. This time for the adaptation of The Kitchen starring Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), Tiffany Haddish (Girl’s Trip) and Elizabeth Moss (The Handmaids Tale).

When I turned on my laptop yesterday morning, I didn’t think that it was going to be another case of Trailer Week ™. We didn’t get around to writing about The King’s Man but our brief thoughts are that while Golden Circle didn’t meet expectations, the prequel looks like it’ll correct its wrongs. That’s why we didn’t do a write-up, we didn’t have more to say.

Recently, Arianne and I were having a conversation and we came to a realization. As if it really makes that much of a difference, but, some of her favourite films of the years always come out of SXSW. And for myself, it’s always Sundance. There’s obviously over-lap but this marks to be true. And this marks another movie that came out of Sundance that is now on my list.

This is where the controversy might begin.
The Last Jedi is the best Star Wars film. You can have your own favourite, but on a technical level, it is the best. Both my opinion and probably as close to fact as possible.

I know, reboots are never great. And in an era where they seem to be everywhere, it’s hard to be excited for them. But sometimes, one sneaks up on you and you just can’t wait for it. I still have fond memories of the Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz film of the 2000s but I just can’t help to be excited by this one. And the trailer might have been a generic action trailer but it still managed to get me excited.

If you know me, you know that this article was coming. In fact, you all should be surprised it wasn’t already posted by the time this one will be.
Before we even talk about the trailer, let me educate the uninformed. Mike Flanagan is one of my favourite working filmmakers. He understands horror at a core level – and then allows you to empathize with his characters through proper drama. Why do horror films work better than others? Simple, because you care about the characters. The villain or our heroes. In some slasher series (take a stab at any really), by the end of their franchises, it becomes less and less about an on-going hero (with some exceptions), and more and more about a hero. We don’t go to see any Friday The 13th films except to see Jason kill some teenagers. We do go see any of the Scream films, or the recent sequel to 1978’s Halloween, Halloween. I know, names for movies are strange. But that’s what works best with Flanagan. You care about his characters.

Another day, another write-up for a trailer for a movie you’ve never heard of from a writer who’s been waiting for this moment for months.
James Gray may not be a name you’re really aware of, and that’s fine, he wasn’t a recognizable name for me until recently. But today, we’re going to change that. In 1994, he made his debut feature Little Odessa, and in 2000 he directed and co-wrote The Yards (with Matt Reeves, remember that name for a second).

Trailer write-up time!
Taking a mild break from my reviews and watches to talk about a movie that I am ready to rally behind. Let’s talk about Luce for a quick minute. Directed by Julius Onah (The Cloverfield Paradox. Hold your thoughts, I know what you’re thinking) and written by the man behind the play of the same name, JC Lee. Let’s take a look at this trailer now.
