Battle of the Trailers!
By Paul Anthony
We always hit the weeks where trailers come out and get us excited for movies to come out. Those movie trailers can sometimes hurt the films as we know and there are times where the trailers show too little or show too much. Among the trailers that did come out two really caught my attention and in today’s blog i am going to look at two movie trailers and those two trailers the first Avengers: Endgame trailer and the Godzilla: King of Monsters trailer. We first look at the Avengers one since after all let’s be honest we are dying for this movie to happen.
Trailers are meant to get us excited for a movie but some movies don’t even need a trailer, one of those movies are Avengers: Endgame. We been excited for this movie since the post credit scene ended in Infinity War. This movie gave us the new title and showed the aftermath of the snap of the finger from Thanos. We see Iron Man floating in an aircraft running out of food and water and now oxygen, we see Thor mourning the loss of maybe his friends and Loki. We get to see a much different looking Hawkeye who most likely lost his family and Captain America forming a plan of attack. Then it ends with Ant-Man at the front door waiting to get in at the Avengers headquarters in his goofy matter.
The trailer got us even more pumped and to think this movie is only four months away we don’t even need another trailer. The only thing that i wish they would have added was maybe a scene with Thanos enjoying life to get an idea of what he actually been up to. Had they added this into this trailer I would have been perfectly fine with it. I am guessing we will get a second trailer during the superbowl ads, so stay tune.
The other trailer that I mention was Godzilla: King of Monsters trailer. For years we have been craving for a Godzilla franchise and in 2014 we finally got it and even have a Monsterverse going on with Godzilla meeting with King Kong. But it’s been five years and the delay may have caused the hype to die down. When the trailers came out I am have to admit I didnt get excited for, the latest trailer was released and I believe it gave away a little too much, judging by the trailer and Movie title Godzilla going to be fighting every monster pretty much and trailer shows that. Which in my mind is just too much and could hurt the film. We know from experiance when you pack too much into a film it always end up being a failure but that will be determine once the film comes out.
Regardless of the trailers, it doesn’t mean these films will be good or bad though, we all know which film will crush the box office and which one might turn a profit. Either way 2019 looking like a great box office year!
