I haven’t done this is a while, but there are a few new trailers out there of which I wanted to make people aware:
Actually the first one is a downer. I’m not at all impressed with The Invasion. Touted to be a reimagining of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers films, it looks instead to be a perfect, uninspired carbon copy. Let’s hope not as everyone involved is top-notch.
The teaser for I Am Legend is out. Maybe I am just excited about this one because half of it was filmed around the corner from where I go to school, but this trailer makes for a wonderful, spooky feel. It reminds me of Cillian Murphy walking through a decimated London in the superb 28 Days Later.
The sumptuous Cate Blanchett epic Elizabeth is getting a sequel and it looks absolutely magnificent. Check out The Golden Age here.
The trailer I am most excited about is for a film I have heard little to nothing about, the Roshomonesque political thriller Vantage Point. Starring Dennis Quaid (someone I always root for) and the great William Hurt, Vantage Point has one of the best trailers I’ve seen since the resplendent Little Children. If the film is as good as the marketing…
