Trailer Feedback: Deadpool (Trailer 2)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe delivered a present to its loyal fans Christmas Day with Deadpool’s second trailer.

Akin to the first trailer, we’re shown a brief origin story before being pulled back to the present state of affairs – but with a few extra goodies (including more Morena Baccarin). We catch a closer look at the Weapon X program and an easter egg glimpse of future X-Man Spike before seeing Deadpool emerge from rubble (presumably the destroyed facility).

Cut to the nitty-gritty destruction, a few snarky comments from Mr. Red Spandex himself, some fourth-wall breaking, a smattering of violence and a little bit of cursing (in the featured Red Band trailer).

While there is a little bit of chit-chit between Deadpool and Colossus, Angel Dust lets loose and we finally get to see what she and Negasonic Teenage Warhead can do followed by another quip from the merc with the mouth (to tie the proverbial room together).

Unlike the second Batman v. Superman trailer, Deadpool’s latest trailer doesn’t give anything major away and instead continues on the light-hearted path of the first one. Through quick wit and kitchy banter, Ryan Reynolds continues to prove why he was born to play the most obnoxious character in the Marvel Universe.

Deadpool slices and dices into theaters February 12.

 

Trailer Feedback: Krampus

Looks like we’ll be getting an unexpected guest this holiday season.

A family of grinches gets together for what’s likely to be their annual (and last) Christmas tradition when all goes dark. During their tumultuous bickering, one of the children tears up his letter to Santa and throws it out the window – presumably the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s (or Krampus’) back.

When the ungrateful family starts to come to their senses, it’s too late and Grandma warns everyone of what’s coming. Krampus is seen on the roof of the house with his sack of baddies and morbid toy contraptions before coming down the chimney to wreak havoc on la maison de dégénérés.

This looks like a holiday treat. From square one everyone but Grandma is an unlikeable character. Envy, bitterness, pettiness and disgust run rampantly in this household. The kids are fighting to the point where one angrily shreds his letter to Santa Claus – and on Christmas (for shame). You can bet that not a creature will be stirring when Krampus rears his ugly head (except Grandma, she seems nice). Krampus’ helpers are going to terrify and provide us with unique deaths that are sure to hark a few herald angels.

At this point the only question that remains is will Santa save the day (or show up at all)? Regardless, Krampus should jingle some bells and raise some hell.

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Krampus is coming to town.

Trailer Feedback: Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (Trailer 3)

The galaxy shook Monday night as the third (and presumably final) trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was unveiled.

For starters, we finally have a trailer with plot elements (and how) in contrast to the cryptic nature of the previous two.

Han Solo and Princess Leia (reprised by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher) look weary as the battle between good and evil will continue with the latest Sith leader Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) Dark Side army in honor of Darth Vader’s memory. Given these facts, it’s plausible that Ren either does not know or refuses to believe Vader’s final act was a redeeming one. Regardless, the galactic power couple of Solo and Leia will more likely serve as mentors to our main protagonists (and latest Jedi) Rey and Finn (Daisy Ridley and John Boyega).

However, there’s no trace of Luke Skywalker (who Mark Hamill is reprising), leading us to believe he may be returning in the form of flashbacks or voice work.

Excitement, breathtaking visuals and suspense permeate the trailer – letting our imaginations run wild. A nice touch of Stormtrooper combat, a neat inside shot of the X-Wing and the almighty lightsaber dual make your childhood memories fondly flow back to you. Despite their ages, it looks like Han and Chewie (reprised by Peter Mayhew) are back for one last hurrah this Christmas.

For the love of God, please don’t let this movie suck.
