Trailer overload: Colossal, Power Rangers, Logan and The Discovery
Hello everyone! Fernando here. It’s been a while (I know, I say that every time). Today I want to share with you some of the best trailers I’ve seen this week and gauge your excitement about some of these 2017 releases.
First, we have a decidedly strange film that’s so weird it could just work out. Colossal, directed by Nacho Vigalondo, stars Anne Hathaway as “a woman who discovers that severe catastrophic events are somehow connected to the mental breakdown from which she’s suffering”. Dan Stevens and Jason Sudeikis also appear. Here’s the teaser.
I grew up on Power Rangers, was obsessed with them and had to get my hands on every item of merch I could possibly find (my poor parents). This year they’re back on the big screen with some new, young talents, as well as Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. This looks kinda bad but I’m sure it’ll still be fun and a hearty dose of nostalgia for some, including yours truly.
The best of the bunch is definitely Logan, Hugh Jackman’s last standalone film as Wolverine. Some pundits have been touting this James Mangold-directed flick as the next “Dark Knight”, a comic-book movie with prestige allure and award prospects. Let’s see if it lives up to the hype. The trailer is certainly great.
Finally, we have the teaser for Netflix’s The Discovery, a sci-fi tale with an interesting, albeit random, cast. Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, Robert Redford, Jesse Plemons and Riley Keough star in this “love story set one year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified”.
BONUS: I know it’s not a trailer but watching clips from La La Land the other day I stumbled upon this gem of a music video. Will Butler’s (Arcade Fire) “Anna” stars the lovely Emma Stone and she’s superb in it.
Well, that’s all, folks! Which one was your favorite? Tell me in the comments 😀
