The next Disney animated film, Strange World, ha snow got a bigger trailer and has revealed the actual plot of the film. It all looks good to me. Disney animated films have been on fire for years. Encanto was awesome. So my hopes are high for Strange World, even if it isn’t a musical.
Once again, Disney is going for a story about generational trauma, which is fine by me. If they’ve got a good story then go for it. Mostly the movie looks like they just let animators go full weird, as weird as they wanted. By all means, that should be fun.
Strange World comes to theaters on Nov. 23.
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!
