This Week In Movie Trailers, You Guys

Kelly Conaboy | October 7, 2011 - 12:30 pm

This week’s movie trailers are generally pretty good! The Young Adult trailer was released yesterday, I’m not sure if you watched it then, but that’s exciting. There is one REALLY BORING trailer, though, and I’ll give you a hint that it rhymes with Bore Morse, so you may want to brace yourselves for that. But most of the trailers are at least good attempts. Not a lot of bad things to say. Watch them now!

Young Adult

I’m definitely looking forward to this Jason Reitman/Diablo Cody movie. I generally like the things they do. Meaning that I generally like the things Jason Reitman does, including Juno. I know Gabe hated it. I KNOW. But I liked it a lot so who even cares, we’re different people, we can think different things about Juno. This trailer doesn’t do a whole lot to excite me, unfortunately. If I didn’t know anything else about the movie I would’ve thought it looked kind of mediocre, except for the beginning bit at the hotel. But I still have high hopes!

My Week With Marilyn

Ehhh. I know it’s A THING that no one is good at portraying Marilyn Monroe, but I would say that thing definitely applies to this. I’m not really buying it or having any desire to buy it. I do love Michelle Williams and I think she looks adorable here, but it’s a little too subdued and a bit too far removed from the subject to make me excited about it, really. Unfortunately.

Norman

This looks good! Certainly #teenagerproblems to an extent, but it seems genuine and a little clever and not too annoying. I’d see it. Also Andrew Bird doing the soundtrack sounds great.

War Horse

More like BORE HORSE. Unfortunately I wrote that as a joke before I even watched the trailer, but now after watching the trailer my real opinion about this movie is “More like bore horse.” Not for me. It looks very nice and the score sounds like a classic Hollywood score, but holy moly. I feel like this is a movie I’d be dragged to when an aunt was babysitting me as a child, because she was kind of interested in it and thought it would be a good movie to take a kid to, but a Jonathan Taylor Thomas movie was playing at the same time and all I wanted to see was the Jonathan Taylor Thomas movie, and just knowing that it was playing mere feet away made watching THIS movie so much more boring that it would have already been. That’s what this movie feels like to me. War Horse.

The Raven

I want to see this! I can’t wait until it’s cold outside and we can all go to a movie theater and get a hot chocolate and sneak alcohol in the theater and put it in the hot chocolate and watch this movie. Even if it’s not that good, and I’m a little sure it will be at least borderline not that good because it’s a period thriller starring John Cusack with a goatee, I think it will certainly be fun. Good enough job, The Raven.
