Trailer Takes: <i>The Secret Scripture</i>, <i>Coco</i>, and <i>Atomic Blonde</i>

Trailer Takes: The Secret Scripture, Coco, and Atomic Blonde


The Secret Scripture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85bdcbawodQ Laura: While I usually like a movie with competing stories, philosophical questions, and high stakes, I felt like the tension, initially displayed as one story, between love and patriotism in the trailer was supposed to capture me more than it did. While that part didn’t quite do it for me, at…

Trailer Takes: <i>Salt and Fire</i>, <i>Rough Night</i>, and <i>The Void</i>

Trailer Takes: Salt and Fire, Rough Night, and The Void


Salt and Fire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s5N4fupIZE Eman: I must start off by saying that Michael Shannon is one of the most interesting actors in cinema to me. I love all the acting work he does and I genuinely think he’s probably a bit crazy in real life. Director Werner Herzog is undoubtedly a weirdo in real life…

A Case for the Classics: <i>The O.C.</i>

A Case for the Classics: The O.C.


The O.C. is, was, and always will be the perfect show. It was full of teen drama, including class divisions and tumultuous romance; it had a heartwarming family dynamic complete with poignant Jewish humor (when is Jewish humor not poignant though tbh); and it lasted just long enough to stay interesting. On the 10th anniversary…

Trailer Takes: <i>Ghost in the Shell</i>, <i>Song to Song</i>, and <i>The House</i>

Trailer Takes: Ghost in the Shell, Song to Song, and The House


Ghost in the Shell, Trailer #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEDctELIm3I Eman: From the get-go, I’m a pretty big fan of the original Ghost in the Shell. I haven’t delved into the annals of anime to that much of an extent, but 1995’s Ghost in the Shell is probably one of my favorite animated films in general. That being said, this live action…

Trailer Takes: Superbowl TV Spot Edition


Baywatch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKgkiiprtKw Eman: A large portion of this movie was filmed in my hometown. I even visited the set with my friends a couple of times between classes and eventually made it onto The Rock’s Instagram. So, of course, I have some bias towards Baywatch. Unfortunately, or perhaps thankfully, that bias was deflated by this…

Trailer Takes: <i>Imperial Dreams</i>, <i>Brimstone</i>, and <i>I Am Michael</i>

Trailer Takes: Imperial Dreams, Brimstone, and I Am Michael


Imperial Dreams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofYNrO77clY Amy: I want John Boyega to have everything in this world. His disarming humor completely charmed me in Star Wars: The Force Awakens—the 2015 megahit the catapulted him to A-list territory—and it’s great to see him keeping the momentum going and flexing his dramatic muscles. This trailer finds him apparently living in…

Trailer Takes: <i>Colossal</i>, <i>Raw</i>, and <i>The Lost City of Z</i>

Trailer Takes: Colossal, Raw, and The Lost City of Z


Colossal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlyFHc5Bsv4 Graham: I remember hearing about this movie getting made awhile ago, but this was not what I expected at all. I actually think that this trailer is extremely well-made. It’s only about a minute long, and it expresses the film’s basic premise (Anne Hathaway is a giant monster) while still leaving plenty of questions….
