In today’s fast-paced, new story every hour society, it’s easy to, as the great Gucci Mane would say, get lost in the sauce. That sauce is the sheer amount of entertainment, celebrity, sports, and political news constantly being thrown at us from our TV’s, computers, and social media accounts. So if you haven’t quite noticed the immense amount of blockbuster movie trailers hitting the web over the past week, we don’t entirely blame you. These tiny snippets have certainly gotten us drooling over the year to come, whether you like superheroes, sci-fi action, or goofy comedies made by Seth Rogen.
Dr. Strange- November 2016
Early this morning, we got hit with a trailer from Marvel Studios for their next major hero to hit the big screen, Dr. Strange. Starring on-the-rise actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, all the comic book junkies will get to throw their 12 bucks at theater ticket windows this Fall.
Neighbors 2- May, 2016
Having zero shame in rehashing essentially the same plot twice, Seth Rogen and Universal Pictures bring us the second installment in the College Greek life-focused flick, “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.”
Star Wars: Rogue One- December 2016
The first spin-off in the new era of Star Wars, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” looks to fill the gap between the prequels and original trilogy, as a band of daring rebels attempt to steal the plans for the Death Star. We’re all hoping that this installment makes Darth Vader seem even more badass than before.
Suicide Squad- August 2016
Getting an updated trailer of possibly one of the most anticipated movies this year, audience opinion is all over the place for villain-focused superhero movie, “Suicide Squad.” Some are saying that the re-shoots to make the movie seem more humorous are a troubling sign of what’s to come. From the look of the new trailer, we can certainly expect the action and gritty feel to be on-point; let’s just hope the movie doesn’t try to copy Deadpool and completely fuck up its own vibe.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them- November 2016
And finally, we have the movie based off a zoological book in a movie based off a real book…. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” The plot will follow the story of Newt Scamander, a notable figure in the Harry potter universe as it attempts to tell his story 70 years before the events of The Boy Who Lived story arc.
So what’s going to be your favorite movie this year? Do any of these trailers hold the weight of their hype, or do you think there’ll be some duds among the stars?
