it chapter two trailer breakdown

The Losers’ Club is back, and so is Pennywise the Clown in It Chapter Two. The long-awaited trailer for the horror sequel just arrived, and it does not disappoint. Rather than a traditional trailer, we get an extended (although clearly trimmed-down) scene, followed by a few quick, exciting, creepy shots. The marketing department doesn’t have to give away too much – they know the hype is real, and that audiences will happily return to the haunted town of Derry, Maine. Still, there’s plenty to latch onto here, and that’s where our It Chapter Two trailer breakdown comes in handy.

It’s the first day of spring, which means summer is right around the corner. And you know what that means: Stranger Things is back. The third season of the hit Netflix series just debuted its official trailer, giving us a glimpse of a summer of big changes for the kids of Hawkins, Indiana.

Avengers Endgame Trailer Breakdown

This morning, Marvel Studios shook up a normal Thursday with a surprise trailer drop for Avengers: Endgame. Since we’ve only had a short theatrical teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot for the movie, fans were excited to finally get a good solid look at some brand spankin’ new footage. However, since Marvel is playing things so close to the vest, they cleverly utilized footage from the previous films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to pad it out. Even so, we still got a good minute and a half of new footage, and that’s enough for us to look through with an Avengers Endgame trailer breakdown. Read More »

Disney released the Frozen 2 teaser trailer today, giving us our first look at the highly anticipated sequel to the 2013 mega-hit.

Child's Play remake trailer reaction

The Child’s Play remake trailer is here, and…it looks okay? If you’ve been reading my work here at /Film, you know I’m not a fan of the idea of this film. I’m a die hard Child’s Play franchise fan, and there was no need to launch a remake. For one thing, the original franchise is still going, with original creator Don Mancini at the helm. Why start over again?

And yet, if I’m being honest, I don’t hate what I see here.

pet sematary trailer breakdown

The new Pet Sematary trailer is here, and it’s fantastic. But more than that, it reveals the filmmakers have deviated in a major way from Stephen King‘s novel. And yet…the change looks like it works. If anything, it looks like it’s turned the film into something even more disturbing. In the Pet Sematary trailer breakdown below, I’ll highlight some of the major changes from King’s book, the 1989 film, and this new version. I suppose I should say “beware of spoilers”, but the spoilers are already given away in this new trailer. But just in case: beware of spoilers.
