‘Frozen 2’ (11/22)
First up, Disney released the full-length trailer for their upcoming animated sequel Frozen 2. This follow-up to the 2013 hit will tackle how Elsa obtained her powers and the gang venture outside of Arendelle to find out what happened to Elsa and Anna’s parents.
It’s another excellent trailer we got here as it offers up a ton of new footage. But I like that they don’t tell you too much about what’s happening with the plot, giving away the new music, or showing all of the jokes from Olaf. Just like the previous trailers released, it showcases gorgeous animation that is going to be eyer-popping on the big screen.
‘The Irishman’ (11/27 on Netflix)
Next up, the second trailer for Netflix’s The Irishman was released online after it premiered on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night. Martin Scorsese’s latest follows the life of Frank Sheeran and his involvement with Jimmy Hoffa.
The first trailer was a little better, but this still makes me pumped for the crime drama a lot more. This also shows more of the de-aging effects on De Niro, which doesn’t look too bad and a bit believable. It’s also confirmed that this will be 209 minutes and I better enjoy every minute of it. And if this trailer wasn’t enough, the early reviews that came out of the New York Film Festival are through the roof. I need this movie, like, right now!
‘Uncut Gems’ (12/13)
Next up, A24 has finally released the trailer for the Safdie Brothers next film Uncut Gems, which stars Adam Sandler. This crime drama focuses on Sandler’s jewelry dealer in the Diamond District of New York City finding ways to pay off his debts.
The word of mouth that came from TIFF has been positive, especially when it comes to Sandler’s performance. That being said, this trailer surprised me, and it’s totally something I’ll go out of my way of seeing. Will I end up just liking it instead of loving the crap out of it? Probably. Though I wouldn’t say the Safdie’s previous film Good Time is a masterpiece, this shows to have the same style, but better.
‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ (10/11)
Next up, Netflix released the full-length trailer for the Breaking Bad movie El Camino. There was a teaser that was shown during the Emmys, but an entirely new trailer came out Tuesday morning. The movie picks up after the show’s series finale with Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) on the run from the law and deals with the aftermath of what happened.
This doesn’t show what the main plot is all about, and I like that they’re keeping it that way. The trailer itself is beautiful, tense, and offers very little dialogue. Now, I’m one that hasn’t watched every episode of Breaking Bad (I know), but that’s going to change before this premieres on Netflix (hopefully). But the El Camino trailer was solid that doesn’t need to show a lot.
‘Spies in Disguise’ (12/25)
And the last trailer that came out in the past week is the third trailer for Blue Sky’s latest animated movie Spies in Disguise, featuring the voices of Will Smith and Tom Holland. The movie follows Smith’s spy character, Lance Sterling, accidentally gets turned into a pigeon by Holland’s scientist character, Walter.
This is the third trailer Fox released, and it still looks as lame as the previous one. Maybe if the plot didn’t involve that stupid pigeon part of the story, this could be a cool spy adventure.
