Trailers Week 107: 24/07/16

The Magnificent Seven
This new trailer for Antoine Fuqua's remake seems to just highlight the fact that the new characters are only archetypes that have particular skills. Like videogame characters.

In a Valley of Violence
I think the moral here is that if you do any time travelling to the old west, don't harass the quiet guy sitting alone in the saloon. He'll surely come back to bite you.

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage
Is the point of xXx to be a more hardcore version of Point Break except with more saving the world than bank robbing? It seems it. And for some reason Ruby Rose's accent really sticks out like a sore thumb for me. Then again anyone sticks out next to Vin.

Oh boy, Jackie Chan teaming up with another American comedian. Surely this'll be a hoot. In all seriousness though, I'm just here for the martial arts.

Hands of Stone
Édgar Ramírez isn't someone you'd want to go up against any day of the week. So imagine what he's like when he's playing a boxer.

Kong: Skull Island
Brie Larson and the Hiddleston star in this reimagining of King Kong in a modern setting. That actually sounds and looks pretty amazing.

Blair Witch
There's so much to say about this movie. It's been 17 years since the original movie came out, so will the target demographic have even seen that one. Also this is a far cry from the psychological horror of the first one. The witch wasn't an actual thing, just a presence. That's all I got.

Before I Wake
I can't believe that the cute kid that is Jacob Tremblay would have nightmares as dark as these.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Guy Ritchie's take on the Arthur myth looks more like London gangsters and con artists than grand army fighting. Looks like a lot of fun if you ask me.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Jon Voight and jazz goblins. I'm serious about those goblins, they look like they were at a party all hopped up on the reefer. And who made Colin Farrell so evil?

Suicide Squad
Let's start of this week's allotted superhero space with some Comic-Con trailers. First we have a synchronised Suicide Squad.

Wonder Woman
Then we get a look at Wonder Woman's World War origin story, with plenty of female ass-kicking action.

Justice League
Our first look at DC's team movie and Ezra Miller looks like he's going to infuse this universe with what it really needs; light humour.

The Lego Batman Movie
Finally we get to measure Will Arnett's Batman against Ben Affleck's. I'm leaning slightly more toward Arnett.

Sausage Party (NSFW)
From one animated movie to another, except this one is definitely not for kids.

Operation Avalanche
No, this isn't a documentary about the recording of The Avalanches long awaited second album, although that would be an amazing title for that. It's actually an alternate history mockumentary about how the moon landings were faked.

The Girl on the Train
This thriller looks pretty confusing right now, but I'm sure it'll make complete sense when we see it.

A Tale of Love and Darkness
Natalie Portman delivers her directorial debut about trying to survive in 1940s Jerusalem.

The more trailers I see for this movie, the more glad I am that I saw the documentary Citizenfour. I mean what is with Jo Go-Lev and doing weird accents. I'm sure people would be okay if he just spoke normally.

Luke Cage
Yes, this is a movie blog and we don't focus on TV too much, but this trailer for Marvel's new Netflix show may be the most perfect trailer ever made. It teases the characters and story enough to let us know what it's about. It uses a song that goes well with that character. It just sets up what every trailer should do with out going over the top. It's perfect. And I'm definitely going to watch it.
