Topic: Cool Trailers

Given recent events, I figured that we might as well have a dedicated thread for trailers. Could be fun.

Re: Cool Trailers

There have been an awful lot of big trailer releases in the last couple weeks or so

Here's a couple that I'm looking forward to seeing that haven't already been posted on the forums somewhere (that I'm aware of):

Re: Cool Trailers

I can't believe nobody's posted about the Prometheus trailer yet. I haven't been particularly impressed by Ridley Scott lately, but Alien and especially Blade Runner are two of my favorite films. Plus I'm pretty crazy for that Noomi Rapace gal, so this is right up my alley. Anybody else?

Re: Cool Trailers

I hope the next trailer has more meat to it, but it's Ridley Scott and I like him a lot, so this excites me. I hope he had a good reason to make this movie, tho, and I hope there's a good reason why the tech in this movie looks very futuristic, when in the distant future it looks like TRS-80s.

I prefer the look and feel of the tech in Alien more than a lot of other space / sci-fi movies. Even though it looks like 70's computers, it feels way more real. They wouldn't waste so much valuable space-ship space and use so much extra power to run holographic screens and fancy lighting and stuff like they do in the new star trek. Real space ships look more like the Nostromo. On the inside, at least. Aside from all the gravity.

Re: Cool Trailers

I was excited to the see the Space Jockey head/helmet from the original Alien make an appearance in the Prometheus trailer along with what looks like it's chair rising from the floor.

Re: Cool Trailers

Ha, the guy who did those Sweded trailers for TDKR and Avengers is an old buddy.

Irritating how many times he goes viral, there's been three big ones in as many months.

He should. It's an NP2k thing there, I think.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) Teaser Trailer

For many years I've been quoting this teaser trailer. It was on a old video I had when I was young(er). I could recite it word for word. And I did many a times when drunk in days of yore smile

We are film nerds and whenever the subject of teaser trailers comes up this one is my go to move as my favorite.

From time to time I've been looking for it on the net but I never found it.
Today I checked just out of habit and here it is in all it's glory.

To me it's the perfect teaser trailer. No spoilers for the story but still drags us into the world of the movie.

Re: Cool Trailers

Hah, this trailer is exactly how they should have marketed Nightbreed...

Re: Cool Trailers

OH FUCK OH FUCK OH FUCK

This is a trailer for an ad, not a movie. But they should have said that in the video.

Re: Cool Trailers

wait, they're making ads for ads now?

Was there a link button somewhere that said "Click here to see a sneak preview of the new Ferris Bueller Superbowl ad!" somewhere? 'Cause that would be an ad for an ad for an ad...

Re: Cool Trailers

I don't care how bad it would've been, i would totally watch that movie.

Matthew Broderick in a car commercial is NOT a good idea.

Apparently nobody remembers that.

Besides, it happened in a whole other country, so it doesn't even count.

Re: Cool Trailers

I'm not gonna lie, that video gave me happy chills. Being that the ad is directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover), intended to mimic/pay tribute to Ferris Bueller's Day Off and set to premiere during the Superbowl, I'm sure it will be fun and memorable. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole thing. smile

Re: Cool Trailers

The whole Bueller Commercial is online.

Re: Cool Trailers

That was the most depressing thing that's happened to me in a long time.

Just. Fuckin. Bleh.

I know it's an Escape from New York rip-off, but still, might work.

Re: Cool Trailers

Most of us have seen the 'Big' trailers of the year already, but this one really caught my eye the other day:
