Coming Distractions: What's New in the Trailerverse
So, I’m what you might call a bit of a trailer junkie. I’m not someone who comes late to movies. I say this in all honesty: sometimes the trailers are the best part. Almost every night, right before bed, I open up YouTube and see what’s out there. And while some studios these days include more content than I would like in their film and tv trailers, others provide just enough to get you hooked, get you pumped, or get you talking. Here are a few that I’ve enjoyed recently.
The Goldfinch is now in theaters and unfortunately, it’s not getting great reviews. It’s a very long book by Donna Tartt, which apparently is now an even longer film directed by John Crowley of Brooklyn fame. But the original trailer that came out almost three months ago still has me intrigued. Cutting scenes together with Perfume Genius’ beautiful song, “Otherside,” along with an all star cast and cinematography by the legendary Roger Deakins? Shiiiiiiiit. I kinda don’t care that this got bad reviews so far. I’m still gonna see it. At least watch this trailer:
