Godzilla vs Kong Trailer

As promised, the first trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong hit yesterday ahead of its March 26 release. And while there is plenty to discuss in terms of reveals and plot business, the name of the game for this first trailer is simply fun. Whether this ends up representing the actual film remains to be seen, but this first trailer definitely goes out of its way to establish a tone. The 2014 Godzilla’s trailer went with mystery. Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ first trailer went for grandiosity. This one is all about the wrestling match. And that’s as it should be. It’s what we come to a film called Godzilla vs. Kong for, after all.

Let’s take a closer look.

what if trailer breakdown

Disney dropped a new What If…? trailer during their huge Investor Day event, bringing us more footage of the animated series. Like the comics that inspired it, What If…? presents us with alternate realities; versions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that are either slightly, or vastly different from what we’ve experienced in the films. It’s a great idea, and bringing in the MCU actors to voice their animated counterparts makes the whole endeavor even more enjoyable.

Let’s dive into the trailer and see what we can decipher.

loki trailer breakdown

Loki looks out of this world — this reality, even. And that’s the intention of the upcoming Disney+ limited series centering around Tom Hiddleston‘s God of Mischief, who we last saw in Avengers: Endgame stealing the Tesseract and teleporting off to goodness knows where. And it turns out, Loki isn’t so sure himself, as the trickster god finds himself jumping through time, and various realities, and apparently pursued (and at one point, captured) by a mysterious organization known as the TVA, led by Owen Wilson.

There’s a lot to unpack in the jam-packed Loki trailer, so let’s head into our trailer breakdown.

WandaVision Trailer Breakdown

mank trailer breakdown

Happy Mank day, everyone! The trailer for David Fincher‘s long-awaited return to feature films dropped today, and it’s stylish and cheeky in all the right ways. There’s even an old-timey Netflix logo to seal the deal. To be fair, though, this is really a teaser, so there’s not a whole lot of detail. It’s more like a mood piece introducing us to the basic story – alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) has to write Citizen Kane, on the double! And make it snappy! It’s a true story, and if you’re not entirely familiar with the background of who is playing who in Mank, I’m here to help with a mini-trailer breakdown.
