Trailers These Days…

So, they’re in the news. Trailers. Too long? Too much given away? Too many before your feature film? Too many before a movie comes out?

I feel like Holly and I have very much so played into this. We love trailers. We now watch for them coming out, keep up on all the newest ones. We’ve shared many of them here, on the blog – in a segment we’ve called Trailer Watch. Have you ever actually looked at a Trailer Watch post? Tell us in the comments below!

I’ve seen a couple of good discussions of trailers lately, so I thought I would give them to you. Agree with a lot of the points made, so rather than rehash them, I’ll share these out.

Star Trek Into Darkness – A LitFlix

Leading up to Star Trek Into Darkness… Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness!

There’s a lot that could be said about Star Trek: Into Darkness. I am sure there are people all over the Internet doing so. My discussion here, as part of our series of LitFlix, is an exploration of Star Trek: Into Darkness in terms of its source material.

If I could cast a movie – The Dark Tower

The GunslingerI was recently mentioning to Holly that I had identified the right actor to play a character for a movie franchise that, as far as I know, is not actually in production. That franchise would be Stephen King’s Dark Tower.

I have an idea for someone to play the main character, Roland. I mentioned it, and Holly came back with another good match. So I have a couple of thoughts for you… and maybe I’ll explore actors for a few other characters as well.

I should mention, I am now also looking and see that I am not the first to explore this topic; it is, in fact, a strong point of discussion over on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1648190/board/threads/

Trailer Watch: Game of Thrones and Star Trek Into Darkness

So, I know you have probably already watched this, but I am busy packing and you can never get enough of Game of Thrones. I love all these characters, but I have also read the book so I know what ultimately happens. Even if they change some aspects there are certain situations that really have to happen.

Let’s just say March 31st cannot come fast enough. Continue reading
