I’ve always loved good movie trailers. To me a trailer represents the promise of an exciting new story, our first introduction to a concept and world we’ve never seen before. When edited together artfully, a movie trailer can become its own work of art.

Gus Van Sant‘s Sea of Trees premiered almost a year ago at the Cannes Film Festival. The drama, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe, wasn’t particularly well received. Booing from critics was reported, but you can’t really take booing, especially at the Cannes Film Festival, seriously. Plus, what kind of an adult really feels the need to boo after a movie?
Roadside Attractions picked up Sea of Trees for U.S. distribution, but a release date has yet to be set. The film is opening in Japan soon, though, so a foreign Sea of Trees trailer has just been made available.

Although we’ve seen plenty (maybe even too much) from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the next films on Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe roster remain a bit more mysterious. Suicide Squad stole the show at Comic-Con this summer with an excellent first trailer, but hasn’t revealed any new footage since, and we’ve yet to see any footage at all from Wonder Woman, which just began shooting last month.
That won’t change today, but at least we finally know when it will. A new Suicide Squad trailer is reportedly coming to The CW next month, along with the very first sneak peek at Wonder Woman. Get more details after the jump. Read More »

I spent a good 15 minutes or so of my Christmas holiday explaining Deadpool to my in-laws. That new red band trailer had arrived online and they were so full of questions. Who is this guy? What’s his deal? When does the movie open? In other words, this purely anecdotal piece of evidence suggests that the Deadpool marketing is starting to do its job. If the older members of my extended family, already gently lowered into geekdom by the X-Men and Marvel Studios movies, are curious about Marvel’s “merc with a mouth,” then maybe this thing will play beyond the already initiated.
And while I explained the trailer in the living room, the internet was busy picking apart the trailer. And while internet commenters the world over were going through this thing shot-by-shot, director Tim Miller was sitting down to answer all (well, most) of your pressing questions. Let’s check out this official Deadpool trailer breakdown.

Reactions to the first Star Trek Beyond trailer were… mixed, to say the least. Some fans loved the big, flashy action beats and Beastie Boys soundtrack, while others fretted that it didn’t really feel like Star Trek. But Simon Pegg, who co-wrote and co-stars in the movie, gets it. “There’s a lot more to the film,” he promised, while advising fans to “be patient.” See the Simon Pegg Star Trek Beyond trailer response after the jump.
