Four Trailer Thursday

Just 48 hours ago this post was in real danger of not being written – simply not enough content! Thankfully, the cinema gods have smiled upon us and I present you with these four trailers to (hopefully) pique your interest and get you out to support your local cinema.

1. Sleight

 

Jacob Lattimore stars in the rarest of features – a gritty, family crime story about magic.  The story is clearly discernible from the trailer but the real strength of the film looks to be acting and plot.

Two highlights

(a)  Dulé Hill breathing new life into the slightly hackneyed villain-threatens-protagonist’s-family phrase: “I will kill you and everybody you know.” Major chills

Don’t be the villain in a movie about magic Gus!!

(b) the ending of the movie teases the possibility that there might be something more substantial than sleight of hand on display… Real magic.


2. Kingsman The Golden Circle

 

Taron Egerton, Colin Firth and Mark Strong return in the sequel to a magnificent debut. Fans of the DCEU will be excited to see the type of spectacle rumored Man of Steel 2 director Matthew Vaughn is able to produce. This trailer teases glorious, unbridled action and riotous comedy. Channing Tatum and Julianne Moore look to steal scenes. I’ll be there opening night.

This is the Gambit movie right?


3. The Defenders

The best thing about Superhero Television – The Marvel Netflix universe is finally staging their first team up season. Nearly everything about this trailer is perfect – opening shots of Jessica Jones meeting Matt Murdoch, an electronic remix of “Come as You Are,” the mighty Sigourney Weaver chewing scenery, humor and top-notch action. August simply can’t come soon enough.

4. The Dark Tower

The long awaited trailer for one of my most anticipated movies of 2017 dropped yesterday and I was thoroughly satisfied. Idris Elba is unbelievable as the gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey glowers satisfactorily as the Man in Black and the visual effects look stunning. Rumors that WB isn’t enthusiastic about this property notwithstanding, fantasy lovers should turn out in droves to see two of Hollywood’s best go toe to toe.  Trailer is worth viewing if only for Elba’s fantastic inner monologue before making an impossible shot look easy.
