A couple new big trailers hit the internet this week, and they’re both OK. One is better than the other, but I’m not blown away by either.
First up is the new Hellboy, which is going for a more comedic tone than the first two Hellboy films — which I regard as classics.
That’s David Harbour as Hellboy and, I gotta say, I’m not yet convinced. It’s hard not to see Ron Perlman’s version looming over him. But I’ll definitely be giving this film a chance.
Next up is Men in Black: International, starring Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth as the new lead agents. I don’t really care for this trailer.
I just don’t like it. I don’t like the feel of it. I don’t like the way its edited. It’s not as sharp as it should be for the Men in Black. It feels like it’s going to lean really heavily into Tessa Thompson being a wunderkind.
But people enjoyed the first Men in Black movie, have probably forgotten the second and third (which I’ve never seen), so this one will probably be a success. I mean, I’ll go see it in the theater. I love going to the movies!
