Welcome to the first edition of "Trailer Trashed" where I, JC King, get drunk, watch movie trailers and then write a blog post about them. So let's get down to it.
Who knew that 4/16 this year would be bigger than 4/20? But thanks to new trailers released for The Hateful Eight, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer Teaser today is a huge day for fans of movie previews.
First up...Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight"
While the Weinstein Company and the rest of the internet was trumpeting the release of this trailer, I was left thinking...Am I the only one who already saw this? This awful excuse for a trailer includes no film footage, no actors, really a whole lot of nothing and looks a lot more like a preview for the new "Red Dead Rememption" video game release. To make matters worse, this was already released both in theaters and on the internet when it was previewed ahead of the last years Sin City sequel. All in all a big piece of shit for a trailer!
FINAL THOUGHT: Don't waste your time watching this trailer. Wait for the real preview which will be out later this summer.
Next up...The Trailer Teaser for "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice"
So the suits look cool...and that's about it. 20 seconds of suits. I guess we'll all have to wait with baited breath until Monday to see the full trailer. Anyone else getting tired of these awful "trailer teases?" I get it...it was cool when Vine was popular, but now...just give us a break and show us the damn trailer!
FINAL THOUGHT: Wait 'til Monday! Atleast it will be 4/20 then.
And last but not least...."Star Wars: The Force Awakens"
Quentin Tarantino and Zack Snyder please take note...this is how you do a "Trailer Teaser." Two minutes of unadulterated Star Wars goodness including fight scenes, new characters, a Luke Skywalker voiceover that pays homage to the Return of the Jedi, and best yet the return of Han Solo and Chewbacca! Also, was I the only one who thought Chewy should have some gray hair to go along with the now Septuagenarian Harrison Ford?! Either way, as we realized from the Star Wars Prequels...if it doesn't have Han Solo, it's NOT Star Wars!
FINAL THOUGHT: Buckle Up...this is going to be a bumpy bad ass ride! Watch this a million times in a row if possible!
Alright, that's it my thoughts after a few brewskies on the new movie trailers out today. With that being said, I'm going to go pop open another cold one and I'll see you around the bend. Who knows? Maybe Monday.
Cheers, Prost, Slainte and Salud!
