Green Band Trailer

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?

XOXO trailer

What do you do if you love raves but hate leaving the house? Well, if you’ve got a Netflix subscription, you put on XOXO. Directed by Christopher Louie, the EDM drama follows six strangers whose lives intersect as they make their way to a giant music festival. Our main hero is Ethan (The Good Wife‘s Graham Phillips), an up-and-coming DJ who books a last minute slot at XOXO after his latest tracks go viral.

There’s also Krystal (Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland), who seems to in the mood for love, and Neil (Whitney‘s Chris D’Elia), who seems really cranky about having to attend XOXO, plus Hayley Kiyoko (Jem), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Ione Skye (Say Anything…), Colin Woodell (The Originals), and Brett DelBuono (Let Me In). Watch the XOXO trailer below.  Read More »
