Now who doesn’t love a good movie trailer? I know I do.
In Watch These Trailers I list a few trailers which I thought were important or significant enough to be mentioned. Find the trailer I’m talking about by clicking on the title. I’m fully aware that some of these trailers came out a while ago, but they are still worth talking about.
After Captain America: Civil War, which comes out in a few days here and I’ll be seeing it right away, we are treated with a new and kind of different hero. Doctor Strange, portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, is the newest addition to the MCU and the trailer looks awesome. In this movie we are being introduced to the magical side of the MCU and other dimensions. From what we can see in the trailer, the magic is going to be gorgeous visually and I hope we get a lot of it. We are getting an origin story here, but I’m not really against it as Doctor Strange has a different and tragic reason as to why and how he became the titular character. He goes a long way before he actually becomes the Sorcerer Supreme and I think it’s going to be interesting.
The Girl on the Train
I was excited to see this trailer pop up on social media, because I’ve read the book and I was really interested to see how they would adapt it on screen. I was a tiny bit disappointed as some things weren’t as I imagined them whilst reading, but I guess that that will always be the case. I think Emily Blunt is a great chose as the main character and will hopefully still be untrustworthy as she was in the book. That sense of unreliability, with all of the characters really, is quite crucial to the story and I hope that they’ll get that right.
At first, I raised an eyebrow when I heard someone was making a movie about how McDonald’s started. I thought it was going to be just one big advertisement for the fast-food chain. Though now that I’ve seen the trailer, I really think that they are going to give us an honest and real representation of how the company came to be.
It seems that Michael Keaton will once again be great as the main character and it’s great to see Nick Offerman again. I like how the trailer gets more intense while it progresses.
