Re: Cool Trailers

This is not a cool trailer, but this thread is the best fit for it and there's no "Utterly Bewildering Nightmare Trailers" thread, so.

Good LORD.  That is some nightmare fuel.

Re: Cool Trailers

The best part of this is that we're probably the bit of the multiverse that got the "good" version of this movie, because there is absolutely no way to make a live action version of Cats that is anything other than abjectly horrifying. The only reason the Broadway version works is that it's on stage... and even then, it only barely manages to squeak by most of the time.

I didn't think it could get any worse, then James Corden showed up...

Re: Cool Trailers

The funny thing is I would watch the SHIT out of a movie with this version of Idris Elba and Ian Mckellan as Tabaxi assassins or something (Hell, just remake Blade... but Tabaxi). Their like, one shot each, is the best thing in this trailer.

Edit: Okay... the theatre nerd in me is contractually obligated to admit that the ballet/dance sequences have and will forever be the one and only best thing about Cats... because a bunch of very attractive people being sexy slinky cat people doing gorgeous dance work? Yeah... that's basically a pretty easy pass on being good.

Re: Cool Trailers

As someone who's never seen a Top Gun and only vaguely knows what it's about.... this honestly looked pretty good. It's straight up Jet porn and Tom Cruise being his charming Tom Cruise-y self, sure... but I'm not exactly opposed to that for another 2 hours.

Re: Cool Trailers

Yeah I'm sorry, no trailer will make me forget the Cats trailer for a while.

Put some dark ambient music under it, and you got yourself a body horror movie about the dangers of nuclear waste on the local cat population .

Re: Cool Trailers

I made sure not to watch Cats. I've watched Top Gun at least three times already. Thank you, Tom Cruise, for insisting so much of the jet stuff was done practically. That was 100% a practical carrier launch; someone said probably from an F/A-18B, which is a two-seat model.

EDIT: The only thing that bothers me is "... the only pilot to shoot down three enemy planes in the last 40 years..." isn't a line that an Admiral would say. That's 100% a studio exec saying "our audience won't know what we mean if we say 'the only ace in the last 40 years,' so make it more obvious."

EDIT EDIT: I'm really curious, though, to see why when he's talking to Ed Harris, Tom Cruise is wearing a high-altitude suit. It shows up once more in a cockpit, but I can't ID the jet he's in.

From the very first DONG! it seems to a person who has seen a Top Gun that it's going to be pure Millenium Falconism from start to finish.  But maybe it's just the trailer?

My brother is sure that the entire movie (and also all of Cruise's crazy stunts up to this point) have been a ploy to get the Navy to give him a real fighter jet, so he could fly it into a volcano.  I guessing that doesn't happen though.

Was it weird for a pilot as young as Maverick to have seen any air to air combat at all when the first one came out in 1989. Interestingly, since he's still in the Navy (not being called up out of retirement or something) one can assume Maverick is a Veteran of not only the Gulf War, but also of the Global War on Terror?  But still, not many Navy air to air engagements in those conflicts either.  So Harris' character is talking about the F-5's he shot down in the end of the first movie. Weird line any way you slice it.

In 1989 the F-14 was barely 10 years old.  Today, it's retired (though strangely, one goes zooming into the distance in the final shot of the trailer), and the now ancient F/A-18 in all its variants hangs on because they're cheap, not because they're cool. (Don't get me wrong, I think they're very cool).  I'm betting Paramount thinks F/A-18s aren't cool enough, and they're hiding a big ole stealth space plane or some nonsense.

Re: Cool Trailers

The Witch absolutely shredded me, this got raves at Cannes, and I'll see Dafoe and Pattinson in anything, so color me hyped. (Also, this won't automatically make it good, but the fact that Eggers shot on 35mm black-and-white stock in the Academy ratio is eye candy.)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks rather like a fucking movie.

Re: Cool Trailers

Already a classic, because it looks like a fucking classic already.

I'm gonna have to wait for download/stream/blu-ray for that one, as I'm 100% sure the local cinema will never show it, but damn, that looks like it's right up my alley.

Re: Cool Trailers

For those who hadn't heard, Apocalypse Now is gonna be showing in IMAX in its new 4K restoration later this month. It's already one of the most staggering movies I've ever seen on a home screen, I'm sure in that format it'll melt brains. (This new "final" cut is a compromise between the comparatively lean theatrical cut and the bloated Redux cut—three hours instead of three and a half.)

Re: Cool Trailers

Two-fer today—new Malick and Greta Gerwig's Little Women adaptation.

These and Episode IX all drop in December, which basically means I'm gonna be on cinema overload for three weeks straight.

Re: Cool Trailers

Damn. Is A Hidden Life looking timely or what?

Also I'm down for even the 97th Little Women, given that cast tongue

Witness me!

Ah. Scratch that. The first one ain't on PC or I would have nabbed it.

Re: Cool Trailers

It suffers the same crap as the rest of the Disney remakes, too saturated, and the everything in frame is so digital it hurts, but otherwise, considering I had never even heard of this remake until about 5 minutes ago, I'm pleasantly surprised. Making it a fantasy adventure movie about the enigmatic and eccentric explorer Dr. Doolittle is 100% the right way to go for a remake. If they had tried to redo the Eddie Murphy version with a modern day take, it would have crashed and burned before it even hit the pavement.

But I'm curious... we'll see if they tone down the visuals before release, but I doubt it, but it might be worth a Netfli- ...Dinsey plus-ing.
