While I could waste a paragraph sounding off on all the trailers let’s just get right to it. Enjoy the trailers and feel free to let us know your favorites in the comments.
My Take: Dr. Strange looks like it will be the film that really pushes Marvel’s special effects department. There are so may similarities to Inception that it will be interesting to see how Marvel can top what that film brought to the table in terms of imagery.
My Take: There were so many impressive moments in this trailer that it made you question why Batman v. Superman did not have the same magic. Aquaman and Flash were highlights for sure and I am genuinely pumped to see them side by side with DC’s trinity.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
My Take: If I have learned anything when it comes to Guy Ritchie’s work is not pass judgment and just watch the films play out. I have done this with both Sherlock Holmes and with The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and both films became favorites. I have always loved the stories of King Arthur and Arthur Rex by Tom Berger remains my favorite interpretation of the stories. Let’s see if Ritchie creates an on-screen version that can compare.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
My Take: The Harry Potter mythos is still a draw at the box office and I think this film will be another home run for the J.K. Rowling. Start printing that money folks!
My Take: It figures that Hall H would send the Suicide Squad out with a bang. August 5th can’t come soon enough!
Kong: Skull Island
My Take: While the inevitable collision course between King Kong and the new Godzilla is all but certain I am actually curious to see how much deeper of a backstory they can provide for Kong and the inhabitants of Skull Island. The cast is solid which definitely helps but the endgame will be Kong’s bigger look.
My Take: Wonder Woman was a high point of Batman v. Superman and this trailer capture a lot of what has made Wonder Woman one of the most iconic female heroes in the DC Universe. The Golden Lasso effect was impressive and I am sure will look even better on the big screen. I am definitely sold!
My Take: The Blair Witch project turned the horror genre around and created the infamous “found footage” horror sub-genre. While the original film is a classic I feel it will be tough to capture the magic that made the first film so iconic. Let’s hope this does not get a PG-13 rating.
