So, this week two of directors that names I keep mistaking release trailers for their new movies. Wes Anderson hits the marketing space hard with three new clips for his Moonrise Kingdom. Japan surprises us once again by creating another weird don’t-know-what and Hollywood shakes hands with England to create a new version of Stranger Than Fiction for those who haven’t seen Stranger Than Fiction. Here they are, the best trailers of the week:
Whatever is happening in this trailer, I am completely taken. Cronenberg proves that his spirit will live forever and bets everything on one Pattinson card. I’d suggest getting familiar with the director before you see the film. It might be the ‘first film about new millenium’, but it’s definitely oldschool Cronenberg.
2. Magic Mike
Another yellow movie by Steven Soderbergh and to be honest, I’m not really persuaded by his attempt to make a…romantic comedy I guess. Did you know Channing Tatum was a stripper? He actually was.
3. Ruby Sparks
So as I promised, here is Stranger Than Fiction but less edgy for those of you who can still be surprised by the idea. Unfortunately, everything is revealed in the trailer, so the only thing left to uncover is the conflict and self-revelation…oops, did I just uncover this too?
4. Moonrise Kingdom Clip
I am a big Wes Anderson fan and I love every single movie of his, so I have no doubts that Moonrise Kingdom will steal my heart. But I must say that the clips that are now all over the internet look a little disappointing. Maybe they are just too short to judge, but it’s almost as if Anderson was trying too hard to be quirky. Here is one of them. What do you think?
5. Dead Sushi
I don’t know what the fuck it is. But I want it.
