The Trailers Shown Before Other Movies Thread

Postby Buscemi » October 31st, 2009, 6:23 pm

This is the place where you post what trailers showed before the print of a certain movie that you saw. I used to do this at The Fantaverse Resurrected but there is currently no post devoted to this.

For my first post, here were the trailers shown before This Is It.

Nine
The Twilight Saga: New Moon
The Spy Next Door
Did You Hear About The Morgans?
Alice In Wonderland
2012 (new trailer)

All of the trailers except for New Moon (saw this trailer before Zombieland) and Alice In Wonderland (saw this trailer before Halloween II) were new to me. Here are my opinions on each one.

-Nine's trailer reminds me of some of the trailers from the 1970's, in which instead of explaining the plot they would show you the highlights of the film as if it were a mini-movie (see The Godfather trailer for a visual explaination). I might like a second trailer before I make a full decision on seeing the film.

-The Spy Next Door looks as if Jackie Chan has hit rock bottom. Though the concept of seeing Jackie Chan play a normal person could work, it just looks like a ripoff of The Pacifier, The Tuxedo and Are We There Yet (oddly enough, this film is from the same director as Are We There Yet).

-Did You Hear About The Morgans? looks like a decent comedic variation of Elmore Leonard's Killshot. Marc Lawrence has proved to be a decent rom-com director and Hugh Grant is always entertaining (as is Sam Elliott). I liked the Sarah Palin reference in the trailer and the bit with the bear.

-The new 2012 trailer may be the most inappropriate trailer of the year. Shots of end-of-the-world destruction being played to upbeat music by Adam Lambert (who did a song for the film). I can't believe the people at Sony approved this trailer to be used.

Buscemi, I totally agree about the new 2012 trailer, dumbest thing ever.

Before This Is It:

2012 - stupid
Did You Hear About The Morgans? - stupid
The Last Airbender - very stupid
Alice In Wonderland - ehh
New Moon - excited, looks better than Twilight
Valentine's Day - HJNTITY 2

Before Amelia:

It's Complicated - tired of this damn trailer
The Blind Side - can't wait
Fantastic Mr. Fox - looks better and better
Me & Orson Welles - meh
Everybody's Fine - looks good. I wanna know what the bad news is!
Dear John - looks great, actually
Avatar - lil bit above average

I was floored at how creepy The Fourth Kind looked and Ninja Assassin looked really cool. Like how GI Joe would have looked if Tony Jaa and team were in charge.

Patient 39? You mean Case 39, Donte.

I didn't even know Case 39 had a trailer, much less that it was playing in theaters.

Here it is, Banks:



According to ComingSoon, it's going to be in theaters on 1/1/10, if you can believe it. Kind of weird to see Renee Z doing horror, but hey, more power to her.

Wow, for a movie that's been delayed for like 4 years, it looks pretty good. All the creepy visuals remind me of The Unborn, and it should probably perform similarly. And having Bradley Cooper can't hurt, even if he does die in the trailer.

Yeah I was rather annoyed that they showed a character die in the trailer. WHY would you do that?!?!

But it did not look bad. I really think this was the best set of trailers I have ever seen at a movie. Not one looked bad and a few are must sees.

Trailers shown before A Christmas Carol in 3-D:

a 3-D ad for a Disney-produced TV special (I don't remember the name and it looks rather cheap for a Disney project)
How To Train Your Dragon (in 3-D)
Alice In Wonderland (slightly revised teaser, in 3-D)
Oceans
Toy Story 3 (in 3-D)
Avatar (full trailer, in 3-D)

How To Train Your Dragon does not look as bad as what some of the other forum members thought. The animation is somewhat decent and the dragon reminds me of Crusoe in The Waterhorse but only bigger.

The 3-D trailer for Alice In Wonderland cuts the cliche slow-motion bit at the beginning but otherwise it the same as the teaser.

The new Avatar trailer in 3-D is pretty epic and I highly anticipate the film now more than anything. However since it was shown with a kids' movie, most people in the audience either were indifferent or didn't understand the trailer.
