Jack makes a thread for the posting of trailers. All beheld it and trembled.
When I went to see 'Inception' last week it was the first movie I'd seen in the theater for several weeks, and I hadn't been watching any trailers online, so I got to see a bunch of trailers I hadn't seen before, and it was actually a pretty good bunch. Usually I'm lucky to get one good trailer before a movie, and usually I'm up to date on current trailers so I've already seen most of them, but the whole thing left my giddy. Usually the block of trailers before a movie is so long that by the time I'm done watching them I feel spent and just want to go home. This time I felt giddy, but couldn't remember what movie I was there to see, so I still felt like maybe going home, but I always stay, and I fall into movies and books very easily, so I get into it pretty quick and forget about the dubious experience of watching twenty minutes of trailers. Anyway, I will post three trailers I remember seeing in front of 'Inception' (there was also a fourth trailer I remembered, but it sucked, and now I've forgotten what it was).
Comic Con is happening this weekend, so of course it is a big time for comic adaptation news, and here is a trailer a fan recorded for the upcoming TV show 'The Walking Dead'.
I'm more excited for Walking Dead than I am for any of the movies coming out in the near future. I'm pretty excited for Tron, but I'm more excited for it because it's Tron than I am for the actual product. My guess is the movie won't be what I want it to be, and I'm guessing this in part because I have no idea what I want it to be.
The Walker Brothers song at the end of the Walking Dead trailer works well.
I am an absolute sucker for trailers. I must be a trailer-makers dream. A swooping score, a slow fade followed by a smash-cut and I am there! Seriously, you could (and people frequently do) sell me any old shit in the form of a trailer.
The new Tron: Legacy trailer looks awesome, and I guess gives a small hint as to what's going on.
Steam-punk, samurai, girls with guns, and dogfights with dragons? Yes please!
Sucker Punch looks insane, in an awesome way.
That's a lot of hot chicks.
Hey, it's another Zack Snyder movie for me to hate!
A sure sign it'll be awesome!
Goiter might like Sucker Punch if it had dicks. Maybe it does! Somebody ask Zach Snyder if Sucker Puch will have any dicks in it, for Goiter's sake!
Not dicks. Dicks.
I seem to like Zack Snyder's movies. Maybe that makes me a little gay. Then again, maybe wanting to bang KV makes me a little gay, too.
Another childhood favorite turned into a live-action/CG/modernised....
Mr. Aykroyd's voice sounds a bit too deep for Yogi, I think, but Justin Timberlake doesn't sound so bad as BooBoo.
I bet there is a dancing CG-animal scene. Can't make one of these movies without one of those.
Can't be worse than Garfield.......... can it?

Pairing slow-paced songs, especially oldies, with imagery incongruous with the contents of the song gets me every time. I can't think of a particular movie trailer that does it, but the intros to the Fallout games do it really well.
It's the song that gives the video a truly haunting atmosphere. Of course, Ron Perlman's prologue also helps.
Sometimes it really annoys me--because it's clear they're doing it for the disparity of sound and image, and it takes me out of the movie. I don't think of The Walker Brothers' cover of "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)" as all that slow paced, even if it is. The drums get whacked hard, the horns, strings, and choral arrangements build in a pretty strong way, and the lyrics are appropriately bleak.
The Olivia Newton-John cover of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in the Face/Off shootout works, I guess, because it's given a context. (They're trying to keep the kid calm with the headphones, and we're hearing what the kid hears.) It's obvious it's just a gimmick, but it works for me. It does currently, anyway. I've gone through phases where I've bitched about it being too heavy-handed to suit me.
Just watched the Fallout video. I'm pretty sure that's the Ink Spots singing.
'Boardwalk Empire' is probably HBO's highest profile upcoming drama. The pilot supposedly cost $20 million. I know almost nothing behind the history of this stuff, so I was surprised how many names I recognized in this trailer. Al Capone (I didn't know he was in this), of course; also Luciano (I assume that's "Lucky" Luciano). Also, they have that Rosthstein guy, who I guess is the one who supposedly fixed the 1919 World Series.

This could be interesting. There's a better trailer over on the Apple trailers page, but I couldn't find a link to that one, so here's what I did find.
Across the Universe Boy is too pretty to be sufficiently uglied up by a simple paint job. It takes away from it. The same can be said for the guy in Beastly, that modernization of Beauty and the Beast that seems like it should have come out already, but won't be released for another half year.
I'll be seein' this 'un.
OMG. Sign me up.
I'm torn. On the one hand it does actually look good, but on the other hand remaking John Wayne movies is not somehting I approve of. Unless your name is John Carpenter.
That said, I will go see it.
I'm still wondering why Matt Damon has been cast for a role that so obviously screams for Val Kilmer.
