Thread: I wanna see that! The official "doesn't merit its own thread" movie trailer thread

    Default I wanna see that! The official "doesn't merit its own thread" movie trailer thread

    This trailer probably isn't worthy of being the first post in this thread, but it's the most recent trailer that has piqued my interest. As a lover of horror movies, I'm always interested to see the turns the genre takes. Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity had major success with the first-person camera bit, and this new flick looks to take the step a bit further: 6 different stories filmed by 6 different directors. The main story arc is directed by one person, and then 5 other "found footage" shorts were directed separately and are incorporated into the main story arc.

    I'm definitely intrigued.

    that VHS movie looks scary as sheet. I saw the preview before Abe Lincoln:Vampire Hunter and it seems these movies are getting scarier all the time. Or maybe the trailers are.

    Watching that trailer, I thought "that chick kinda looks like an uglier Mischa Barton."
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Movie 43. I can't tell if this movie is a parody or just a strange movie. But it looks funny.

    Default Future Films to Flaunt

    Since the little monkeys at home keep me from seeing man movies in the theater, I miss plenty of the trailers for future films. I thought this could be a good singular thread for people to share trailers for upcoming movies. Preferably for ones that seem good.

    I'll start with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. This trailer seems to be getting some hype, even being called the best trailer in years. I'm not going to give it that much credit but maybe it's the fact that there is very little dialog, maybe it's the Of Monster and Men music but the premise seems interesting enough. I'm probably holding hope that this is Ben Stiller's coming out role as a serious actor. Adam Sandler had Punch, Drunk, Love, Jim Carey had Eternal Sunshine and I guess Truman Show before that, and Will Ferrell had Stranger Than Fiction. All pretty solid efforts.

    These days I sort of hate trailers as a whole. Most of them give away major plot points, which lessens my enjoyment of the film if I choose to watch it.

    Tell me who's directing, who's starring, what the basic premise is, and let me decide.

    Based on a David Sedaris short story, C.O.G. seems to have some real potential.

    It doesn't look anything like the short story. Kinda interesting that mundane Mitty reads Thrasher and Slap.

    Amazing! Seems like very little correlation these days between the quality of a movie and its trailer, but that is a great, great trailer.

    That is a great trailer. I was surprised to see Stiller is directing as well. Some of the shots looked very, IDK, not what I'd expect from Ben Stiller behind the camera. ha.
    So Russell...what do you love about music? To begin with, everything.

    I agree. They almost felt a little Wes Andersonish, sans kitsch.

    I saw this at Sundance. It was hilarious and bizarre. The protagonists make you like them and then really put you off hard. It makes your innards churn a little but I really enjoyed it.

    That Ben Stiller trailer looks pretty Night at the Museumish. Not impressed so far. Unless you tell me Ricky Gervais is in it.

    You know which trailer is awesome? The one for that new doc about Salinger. In fact, it is so awesome that I was telling my buddy the other day that there's no way the documentary itself could be as interesting and exciting as the trailer seemed to suggest. Sure enough looks like the reviews have not been very good.

    This week or next Short Game will be released. It's about seven-year-old golfers competing in national tournaments. From the preview, it's apparent most of the kids have better swings than those witnessed at South Mountain a couple of weeks ago.

    Three of the featured kids will be on Jimmy Fallon tonight and the four of them will have a chipping contest.

    Wes Anderson probably deserves his own thread, not a bunch of scattered threads each time he comes out with a new movie film.

    The Grand Budapest looks to be pure Anderson.

    Dwight's title is much better, just being honest. I suggest that with the merged threads that we adopt the superior title.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Although not a real film, this SNL spoof of a Wes Anderson film is pretty good.
