‘Molly’s Game’ Looks Exciting And Sleek In Teaser For First Trailer

Is it too much to ask for just a simple teaser trailer? I mean, the same objective can be achieved, but it’ll certainly be less irritating than this. I thought this year was done with the teaser for the trailer crap, which I still blame on Ridley Scott, but apparently I was wrong. Fortunately, which I doubt I’ll ever say again, this is one time I’m okay with it. I’m that thrilled to finally be getting some footage!

‘First They Killed My Father’ Offers Powerful Images In First Trailer

Netflix


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

No matter how long ago an event occurred, or how terrible it was, film can be a kind of blessing. While watching a film about horrific events can be difficult, you can learn so much. Perhaps you didn’t know anything about what the film is covering. Perhaps you just forgot. Perhaps you didn’t know a specific incident or person or hadn’t seen it portrayed from a certain viewpoint. Whatever it may be, now you have a chance to change that. What will you take away?

‘The Disaster Artist’ Appears To Be Anything But A Disaster In First Teaser Trailer

Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

When you hear about a film for so long, you’re bound to jump at the opportunity to watch any footage of it. It doesn’t matter what the footage is. It could be some behind the scenes video, a 30 second teaser for the teaser (which I still blame Ridley Scott and Prometheus for), some featurette that teases a little and provides insights, while not giving you too much of anything (ahem, First They Killed My Father, which was also a great video), or something else to pique your interest. However, every now and then a trailer just does something else. The unexpected. You pretty much just have to roll with it.

When it comes to some sequels, you’re usually just watching them because they’re part of a much bigger franchise. Sometimes, especially with book adaptations, there’s this feeling of obligation. You know what’s coming next, it might not be the best in the world, but you still want to see how it all turns out. So you sit through it and then discover for yourself. Was it what you expected? Did it falter more than you’d hoped it would? Or, was there really no way to be pleased with the final result?

Checking Into Room ‘1408’ Is Still Not A Smart Idea, But It Is Fun 10 Years Later

Dimension Films


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

When it comes to an adaptation it’s basically up in the air on whether or not it’ll be as good as you imagine. Sometimes writers and directors manage to come pretty close, other times, they’re way off mark. Some of it’s just going to depend on how you approach the film knowing it’s an adaptation. Are you particularly attached to it? Have you read the original source material? Have you even heard of it? Any of these things, among so many others, like who wrote the original story, could greatly affect the way you view the film adaptation.

‘Fantastic Four’ Is Far More Painful Than I Remember It Being

20th Century Fox


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

The 20th Century Fox film Fantastic Four, based on the comic book of the same name, may be better than the newest film of the same name, but not by much. It’s as bad as most people have always said it was and would probably still say if you asked them today. I know it’s crazy that I chose to watch something I could’ve easily avoided, like I’d been doing for at least the last six years, but there’s a reason for it. I’ll get to that another time, mainly because when the time does come, it’ll become evident quite quickly.

‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Dazzles And Build Intrigue In First Teaser Trailer

20th Century Fox


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co

The upcoming 20th Century Fox film Murder on the Orient Express, based on the novel of the same name by Agatha Christie, is seriously going to make me want to pick up the original source material and then pick up even more of Christie’s books. If you’ve seen the most recent version of her novel, And Then There Were None, you’ll understand completely. Come to think of it, why haven’t I picked up that book at least? Huh.
