Top 10: Trailers for 2017 Movies


Welcome to a brand-new year of movie watching!  Yes, there are still plenty of 2016 releases to view and review as we move toward Oscar season (and I can promise you there will be more reviews than there have been of late, my apologies for that), but it’s always exciting to stand at the beginning of the new year and look at what’s upcoming.  I thought the best way to do that was to highlight the ten best trailers for 2017 movies released thus far.  These are mostly for first-half releases, and some films just missed the list so here’s just a taste of what’s coming in 2017 that isn’t on the list: Star Wars Episode VIII, Justice League, John Wick Chapter 2, The Circle, Alien: Covenant, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Mummy, Spider-Man Homecoming, The Dark Tower, Creed 2, It, Thor: Ragnarok, Murder on the Orient Express, and many more. So get ready for the ride; it’s going to be a heck of a year! Continue reading Top 10: Trailers for 2017 Movies

Trailer Time: Kong Skull Island Trailer #2 (2017) *KONG!*

I don’t think I can remember a non-Comic Con week where so many trailers have dropped like this one.  The second trailer for Kong: Skull Island has premiered, and hold on to your butts, people, we’re in for something amazing.  I don’t like this trailer as much as the first, and I’m a little worried John C. Reilly’s character is going to Jar Jar this thing, but mostly I’m in awe at how amazing this looks. Continue reading Trailer Time: Kong Skull Island Trailer #2 (2017) *KONG!*

Trailer Time: Disney’s Beauty & The Beast (2017) *This Is How You Do a Teaser*

After wowing us with their live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book in 2016, next year Disney will turn its sights on Beauty & The Beast (still the only animated feature to ever be nominated for Best Picture).  The Jungle Book so blew me away that I was in on this (though 2018 and The Little Mermaid is going to seriously need to win me over).  However, this teaser trailer just bewitched me.  Elegant, haunting, showing just enough while taking you back to the Beast’s castle, showing only a glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle.  I was incredibly impressed with this teaser.  I was not the only one.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty & the Beast broke the 24-hour viewing record for a trailer debut set by Star Wars Episode VII, being viewed online 91.8 million times since Disney uploaded it.  In another two or three years, Disney will have enough money to secede from America and become its own country (storing it all, of course, in a theatrically huge Scrooge McDuck money bin).

The cast is as stellar as The Jungle Book’s and is directed by Chicago director Bill Condon.  Joining Emma Watson as Belle are Emma Thompson, Ian McKellan, Ewan McGregor, Luke Evans, Stanley Tucci, Kevin Kline, and Dan Stevens as the Beast.  Original composer Alan Menken will return to do the music.  This looks like it could be something special.  But I think this is this the only Episode VII record the film will be breaking.  Disney’s Beauty & the Beast is scheduled for a March 17, 2017, release.
