Movie Trailer Thursday
I’m still on vacation, still just sitting on my butt and playing a bunch of Tears of the Kingdom. But a bunch of movie trailers have come out, and I’m going to see Fast X this afternoon. So why not share and see what everybody else thinks?
First up is Haunted Mansion, the second attempt by Disney to turn this famous ride into a movie. I don’t remember anything about the first Haunted Mansion movie, but this new one already looks better, and has a bunch of great actors.
Looks solid. Looks enjoyable. I’ll probably go see it, depending on whatever else comes out that weekend. I doubt it’ll launch a new franchise, though. But they can try.
Haunted Mansion comes out on July 28.
Next up is Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part 1. I’ve never been into the Mission Impossible movies. The ones I’ve seen have been fine action films, sure, but this franchise means nothing to me. Like the Fast & Furious franchise.
Like, how is this trailer any different from every trailer in this franchise ever? How are any of these movies separate or different from all the other movies in the franchise? Why does this one need to be two parts?! I just don’t get it.
Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part 1 comes to theaters on July 12.
A Metric Ton of Upcoming Movie Trailers!
Between my being on vacation last week and a bunch of big movies coming out, we’ve been getting a metric ton of new movie trailers recently. I love movie trailers and I love sharing them. I’ve already shared a couple this week with stand alone posts, because I thought they deserved it. But these are the ones I’ve been sitting on, and they’re taking up too much room on my bookmarks bar. So let’s just get them out of the way!
I will post them in descending order from my interest.
First up is a new trailer for NOPE, Jordan Peele’s new horror movie. Be warned, this might have more spoilers than you might normally like in such a trailer.
I’m definitely excited for this one. Jordan Peele is making some great movies, and this one looks especially spooky and wild. I’m always down for a new take on mysterious alien appearances in the sky. NOPE comes to theaters on July 22.
Next up is Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. This one should be great!
I was slow to get into the Beavis and Butt-Head cartoon back in the day because I definitely wasn’t an MTV teenager. But I loved what I saw, and especially loved their original Do America movie. So with Mike Judge coming back and the duo not being overdone in recent years, I think Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe could be really neat! It’s coming to Paramount+ on June 23.
How about a new movie in the Predator series? How about Prey?
I like the look of this one as well! I’m no big Predator fanatic, and most of the ones I’ve seen have been terrible. But I’m totally down for the idea of a back-to-basics Predator movie where those alien hunters take on some Comanche Native Americans. That idea has a ton of potential. And we’ll see how much potential when Prey comes to Hulu on Aug. 5.
Next we have a new trailer for Bullet Train, the really cool looking Brad Pitt movie coming out this summer. This trailer also reveals a lot more about the plot and characters, so be careful if you’re trying to avoid all spoilers.
Bullet Train looks like somebody watched Knives Out and decided to make their own version, and I am 100% in favor of that. Knives Out was a masterpiece, and more movies could use that type of energy. Brad Pitt going nuts on a train full of charismatic assassins sounds perfect to me. I’m definitely excited for this one. Bullet Train comes to theaters on Aug. 5!
Let’s keep it going! Next up is Strange World, the teaser for the next Disney animated movie.
I think Disney Animation is knocking it out of the park these days. I think I like their movies more than Pixar. So I’m definitely going to get my hopes up for Strange World. The movie definitely shows us a pretty strange world. We’ll find out what they do with it in theaters on Nov. 23.
Oof. I’m already getting tired. So let’s just rush through the last couple of trailers I still have. We’ve got Three Thousand Years of Longing, Beast and Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning: Part 1.
All look pretty cool. I’m especially excited to see Three Thousand Years of Longing, the new George Miller film that will be his follow-up to Mad Max: Fury Road. Can we deliver that same insane magic? I bet he can!
So yeah, it’s safe to say that movies are back and we’ve got so many to look forward to! More of these trailers are original properties than not. And none are Marvel movies. So it’s also safe to say that non-superhero movies are allowed to exist!
