the punisher trailer

I’m not saying John Wick is the only emotionally fraught vigilante who’s allowed to dramatically smash concrete with a sledgehammer in a scene of violent catharsis, but this particular slice of imagery from the first official The Punisher trailer demands the comparison.

The first teaser for the upcoming Netflix series premiered at the tail end of The Defenders, which arrived on the streaming service early this morning. It’s online now, showcasing Jon Bernthal is all of his glowering, floor-smashing glory.

The Punisher TV Show Footage Revealed at Comic-Con

Hall H was filled with thousands of Comic-Con attendees ready to learn more about The Defenders, the Netflix series that unites the heroes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. But first, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb had a special surprise for the crowd. Jon Bernthal took the stage and we all instantly realized what was coming.

Baby Driver - Baby (Ansel Elgort) in mirror

Baby Driver took SXSW by storm this past March, earning such high praise (it’s currently sitting at a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, with 22 reviews in) that distributor Sony was inspired to bump its release up from a sleepy August weekend to a prime June spot.

But we didn’t know any of that was going to happen in April 2016, when the studio invited us to visit the film’s Atlanta set. All we knew at that time was that Baby Driver was the new Edgar Wright movie – and considering his track record, that in itself felt like reason enough to get excited. And what we learned on set rocketed the film to the top of our most-anticipated list.

‘Baby Driver’ Trailer: Volume Up, Pedal Down

Baby Driver Trailer

Last month, Edgar Wright‘s latest film Baby Driver played SXSW and received plenty of rave reviews, including one from our own Jacob Hall. The critical acclaim and the buzz that followed was enough to convince TriStar Pictures to bump the film from its initial August release date all the way up to the end of June. They’ve got a lot of confidence in this one, and after seeing the first trailers, so do we.

Now another Baby Driver trailer has surfaced, this one set entirely to the Golden Earring tune “Radar Love,” which was featured in the theatrical international trailer that was released last month, but is used a little more effectively in this quick new trailer. Watch it below! Read More »
