Trailer Watch: Where The Wild Things Are, Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Jennifer’s Body, District 9
Posted on Friday, July 3rd, 2009 by Peter Sciretta
Want to know when new trailers for Where The Wild Things Are, Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Jennifer’s Body and District 9 are scheduled to hit? We have some updates after the jump.
The new trailer for Spike Jonze‘s Where The Wild Things Are will premiere attached to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which hits theaters on July 15th 2009. JoBlo is reporting that the trailer will run one minute and thirty three seconds, a bit shorter than the first trailer. I’m sure it will be cut to appeal to the younger Potter demographic.
Also, a new 2+ minute long trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes will also be attached to the new Potter film. I’m sure that trailer will also be edited to appeal to the younger demo (more action/comedy Pirates-style), which is smart because in my experience, the older demo hasn’t been taking to it.
Originally there were rumors that the first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s animated Fantastic Mr. Fox would be attached to Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. As you’ve probably figured out by now, the trailer was not attached. So right now, I have no idea when the trailer will hit. Anyone have any ideas? The movie isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until mid-November so there is still a lot of time. The next possible sighting would be Fox’s hybrid Aliens in the Attic on July 31st.
Your first chance to see the trailer for the Diablo Cody-scripted Megan Fox teen horror film Jennifer’s Body will in front of Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Bruno.
And Sony will be premiering a new two minute and twenty one second trailer for District 9 attached to Bruno (and online next week). JoBlo has a good description of what it shows, but I’m going to wait to see it on the big screen or online myself (I don’t really see the point of reading a description of a trailer).
