Trailer Thursday

Lightened load for today… Nothing really caught my eye besides the two trailers that I’m showcasing today.

 

The trailer takes pains to point out that this is a re-imagining (NOT a remake) of the classic Stephen King novel/movie. 

I am really excited for this, TV has never been a breeding ground for good horror so I’m hoping that “The Mist” can spark something intriguing. 

This trailer does exactly what you want it to do, creating a looming terror and interspersing character beats within it. 

Twitter was SHOOK when this trailer dropped Friday night. Anybody that knows me realizes I am the furthest thing imaginable from a Marvel fan but this trailer makes me a believer. This might not be the “Creed” sequel we’ve been wanting (YOU THINK WE FORGOT RYAN COOGLER?!?) but it is at least a worthy substitute. 

This trailer showcases an all-star cast in astounding scenery. Wakanda looks to be the most visually arresting Marvel property yet

Highlights:

Michael B. Jordan (he’s good in everything Josh hasn’t touched)

Andy Serkis (nice to see him out of mo-cap)

Wakanda (breathtakingly beautiful)

Boseman kicking butt (so what if it was a stunt double)

Lowlights – “Woke” BP fans on Twitter… Seriously guys, lets not ruin BP by being jackwagons. Okay? Okay. 

CGI is a bit wonky in places but that is understandable. Disney execs wanted to premiere the trailer in front of a massive NBA Finals audience and they were (understandably) frightened that the series would end before they could release it.
