Because previous trailers for this summer’s lineup of movies looked like major letdowns, the studios have just released new previews hoping to show improvement. Sadly, this second time around seems to confirm that we might be in for some big disappointments.
The new and improved trailer is finally here, and once again, fans are unimpressed. Granted, it’s a step up from the last one, but if this is any indication of the things to come in July, there’s really nothing remotely funny or exciting about this movie. Sadly, all fingers seem to be pointing at Leslie Jones. These previews make her out to be not only annoying but also possibly the center of much of the film’s comedy. Still, I’m confident that Paul Feig might actually pull this off, in spite of these awful sneak peeks.
‘Star Trek Beyond’
Here’s another small improvement, this time from a terrible teaser that looked and felt nothing like a ‘Star Trek’ movie. Even so, this one still places a great deal of emphasis on the action, making this third installment in the new, alternate-timeline franchise look like just another bombastic action extravaganza.
Because it comes from the imagination of sci-fi geek and Trekkie Simon Pegg, I remain hopeful for this entry, but I’m still left with the impression that Justin Lin is the wrong person to pilot this mission into uncharted territory. And I mean that quite literally, since the villain Krall, played by Idris Elba, is a brand new character. I’m walking into this movie with low expectations so that maybe I might walk out somewhat surprised.
How in the world have the producers made a new preview that’s worse than the first one? Although I wasn’t completely sold on the movie, at least the initial trailer made me chuckle. But now, this one looks incredibly painful to watch and makes me want to avoid the movie at all costs.
I didn’t laugh once or find a single thing remotely amusing. Instead, almost everything about it looks just plain stupid, from the poop emoticon review and the Anne Frank idiocy to the gag about Seal being attacked by wolves. At best, I’ll give the movie a rent only because the idea of Andy Samberg satirizing Justin Bieber raises my curiosity just a smidge.
After a trio of bad trailers, we need some respite with the newest look at the latest Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg collaboration. I still find this summer flick potentially hilarious.
