Tomorrowland IMAX header

Until now, all the trailers for Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland have primarily sold wonder. A girl finds a pin that shows her another world. There’s a flying bathtub, giant robots, someone with a jet pack, and a rocket powered Eiffel Tower. Just a big hodgepodge of awesome.

A third trailer has now been released and it is much more focused. It’s pretty much an entire scene from the film, featuring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, with lots of what makes the film so unique. Clooney’s house is a Temple of Doom for the people chasing them, littered with crazy defensive gadgets aiding in the battle. Less is learned about the movie as a whole, but we see the potential this scenario has to show us anything is possible.

Below, see the latest Tomorrowland trailer as well as a new IMAX poster. Read More »

The Little Prince

Forget trying to live up to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s original source material. Can Mark BridgesThe Little Prince possibly live up to its enchanting trailers? If it can — if it’s even half as good — we could be looking at an instant classic.

What makes the latest The Little Prince trailer even more appealing to us is that it features the English-language voice cast. That includes Jeff BridgesMackenzie FoyRachel McAdams, and James Franco, with Riley Osborne as the little prince himself. Watch the Little Prince trailer after the jump.  Read More »

The Overnight trailer

The Overnight is a hilarious and perceptive relationship comedy that turned up at Sundance this year. Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling play a couple new to Los Angeles; at a park with their young son, they meet cool dad Jason Schwartzman, who invites them over for a little “welcome to the neighborhood” dinner with his wife, played by Judith Godrèche. And then things slowly but surely get weird.

The film is a raunchy comedy, but it isn’t just a raunchy comedy — there’s some really sharp stuff here about how making adult friendships can be really weird, and how dealing with all the weird stuff you’re into can be really difficult when you’re not sure if your partner is into it, too. Check out The Overnight trailer below.

Mr Holmes

Between BBC’s Sherlock, CBS’ Elementary, and Warner Bros.’ ongoing film series starring Robert Downey Jr., we’re practically drowning in Sherlock Holmes adaptations at the moment. The last thing we need is another one. Or at least that’s what we would have said before seeing the excellent trailer for Mr. Holmes.

In the new film by Bill Condon, Ian McKellen plays the classic character near the end of his life. Though he’s now living out a peaceful retirement among his beloved bees, Sherlock remains haunted by the circumstances of the case that put him into exile. Watch the Mr Holmes trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Jurassic World Poster raptors header

As the latest trailer indicates, Jurassic World echoes Jurassic Park in some pretty obvious ways. Once again, a group of humans build a tourist attraction filled with prehistoric predators. Once again, they bicker about whether this is a good idea. And once again, the haters are proved right when it all ends in bloody catastrophe.

But whereas the humans in Jurassic World are trying to improve on a spectacular failure, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has the difficult challenge of trying to match a critical and box office smash. Will he succeed? Check out the new Jurassic World trailer after the jump.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we spend time learning about Paul Newman’s obsession with racing, spend some time with corrupt cops, Kickstart some sci-fi, snatch some kids for funsies, and see if any of us can figure out what in the hell prêt-à-porter means beyond just being a really terrible movie from two decades ago.
