Search Results for Movie Trailers Roundup
It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these too. In fact, it’s been over a month since we gathered all of the week’s movie trailers into one handy post that we call the Movie Trailers Roundup.
We have eight trailers in this week’s roundup. Since we have that post dedicated to Rogue One, it’s not in here. However, this fall’s other mega blockbusters, Fantastic Beasts and Doctor Strange, are in the roundup. Along with them are new trailers for Suicide Squad and TMNT2. There is no shortage of action movie trailers for you to watch today.
It’s time for the movie trailers roundup which means that we’ve reached the point in time where we have to include the new Ghostbusters movie in there. It’s a shame that they haven’t put any effort into the trailer. The movie certainly seems like a hybrid of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 in terms of plot with all the generic modern comedy jokes and tropes slapped on top. Ghostbusters is a movie that has jokes that work for kids but throws enough other jokes, references and material that it holds up to repeated viewings over twenty years after I first watched it. Maybe it’s just the trailer, but 2016’s Ghostbusters looks like another dime-a-dozen comedy that’s exploiting an established franchise for a quick buck.
Oh, and there are six other trailers to watch too.
I guess that Hollywood was too busy politicking for the Oscars to cut trailers for this week’s roundup. There are only five trailers that we have in this week’s roundup. Most of the movies strike me as ones that would go over well at Film Festivals. Makes me think I should go to more film festivals now that I say it.
While yesterday’s game trailers were a little lacking in quantity, there’s no such complaint for the movie trailers. Today’s movie trailers roundup has eleven trailers for you to watch. It’s a mix of action, comedy and thrillers this week.
This week’s set of ten movie trailers is mostly the festival crop of movies. High-Rise, Demolition and The Lobster all feature in this week’s movie trailers roundup but they were also gala presentations at TIFF. I couldn’t get tickets to them because TIFF tickets are really damn hard to get. I mean, the second showing of Freeheld (only worth it for Ellen Page’s performance) was almost sold out and that was a Monday matinee.
And it all kicks off with Jaime Lannister vs. King Leonidas in Gods of Egypt. I get the feeling this might that many, many people would enjoy those two in a kick-ass brawl.
After a week off, the Movie Trailers Roundup is back. We have seven trailers this week and it’s a split between kids/family movies and horror movies. It’s a rather unusual contrast but seeing as family movies are more traumatizing than horror flicks, it’s oddly appropriate too.
You know, it’s interesting seeing how much less cyclical the movie industry is than the games industry. These movie trailer roundups are consistently pretty packed with big movies. While the games industry is built around the fall (and March to a lesser extent), movies go year-round with bigger pushes in the summer and at Christmas. So even though the spring is relatively quiet for the movie industry, we still have more movie trailers than game trailers this week.
Anyway, there are seven trailers for you to watch this week. Suicide Squad is the big new trailer of the week and it admittedly looks pretty fun. Since it’s a DC movie rather than TV show, I still might wait for people to watch first and report back before I see it. I’m most looking forward to 10 Cloverfield Lane, the apparent sequel to Cloverfield which I quite enjoyed before the motion sickness set in. And for other folk, there are trailers for Neighbours 2 and Blue Mountain State.
It’s officially awards season in Hollywood! That means absolutely nothing to the Movie Trailers Roundup. I’m not sure you’ll see too many awards contenders releasing trailers now.
That being said, this week’s roundup has six trailers featuring some of the stars of Hollywood. Hiddleston, Portman, Kenobi, Owen Lars, the Coens, Spacey and McConaughey all feature in the roundup. That’s some serious star power coming soon.
Unlike the three-week break that we took for the Game Trailers Roundup, the Movie Trailers Roundup returns with actual trailers. Because Christmas is a big time for movie releases and movie watching, distributors want to get people hyped for their upcoming movies. That’s why we have nine movie trailers for you to watch this week.
A lot of these trailers are for blockbusters. Deadpool, X-Men, Godzilla and Triple 9 all have trailers that came out over the last three weeks. There are also trailers for three animated kids movies if you’re looking for a movie adventure for the youngins.
I’ve been looking for a way to have a full five days of 5:00 PM weekly posts for et geekera. We do game trailers on Monday, comic book releases on Tuesday, eSports events on Thursday and links on Friday. If you’ve read the title of this post, I think it’s time for us to do movie trailers on Wednesdays. It may not stay here for long as I’ve been considering switching the eSports Weekend Calendar to Wednesday but let’s see how this goes for now.
For the first movie trailers roundup, we have eight trailers for you to watch. Four of them are for some of next summer’s blockbuster releases, including the new Star Trek movie that seems to borrow from The Search for Spock and the Independence Day sequel that likely won’t include the line “welcome to Earf.” There is also a teaser trailer for a Steven Spielberg children’s movie which is the first time in forever that we’ve been able to say that.
