stranger things season 3 trailer breakdown

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. Aside from the obvious first trappings of puberty, the gang’s dynamic is shifting as romance is in the air and fireworks are flying. But greater changes are afoot in Hawkins, as a new morally corrupt Mayor Kline (Cary Elwes) takes office and opens the new Starcourt Mall, all the while strange disappearances begin to take place.

We try to unpack what this all means and more in our Stranger Things season 3 trailer breakdown. Let’s dive in.

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. Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad) return in what looks to be an epic and action-packed sequel, as our heroes venture beyond the Kingdom of Arendelle for the first time.

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.

Spider-Man Far From Home

Fans have been waiting for the Spider-Man: Far From Home teaser trailer since it debuted down at the CCXP convention down in Brazil, and today it finally arrived. Though it doesn’t feel quite as thrilling as the visual overload and excitement that came from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse last month, it’s good to have Tom Holland back as Peter Parker, especially since the last time we saw him, he wasn’t feeling too well.

Of course, since this is our first official glimpse at any footage from Spider-Man: Far From Home, there are plenty of new details that we need to take a closer look at by way of one of our traditional trailer deep dives. Find out what you might have missed in our Spider-Man Far From Home trailer breakdown below. Read More »

Avengers Endgame Trailer Breakdown

This morning, the Avengers 4 trailer finally arrived, and it came with the reveal of the title: Avengers: Endgame. And honestly, that’s probably the biggest revelation to come from the teaser trailer that the internet has been demanding for months now. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t details to pore over instead of getting mad about the fact that Anthony & Joe Russo flat out lied to us about the title of the movie.

Anyway, let’s dig in with our Avengers Endgame trailer breakdown. Read More »

captain marvel trailer breakdown

The new Captain Marvel trailer dropped last night, revealing more about the highly anticipated Marvel Studios movie. Though much of the movie still remains a mystery, we’ve picked up more clues about Captain Marvel‘s plot and its hero, played by Brie Larson.

The film follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who became endowed with incredible cosmic powers and is now part of a cosmic team known as the Starforce. But upon her return to Earth, she realizes that there’s more to her past than she realized.

The new trailer depicts Carol’s search for answers, and perhaps something more sinister at play with the team of “noble warrior heroes” that she works with. Let’s dive into the Captain Marvel trailer breakdown.
