This is the weekend of the year where you know the big time movies will be releasing their trailers. We saw a new Avenger trailer and a Toys story 4 trailer and more but there was one that caught my attention not just because they released a full trailer just a few days earlier and that film was Fast and Furious presents Hobbs and Shaw. Don’t get me wrong this trailer had its moments but there were some that just in my eyes were too much.
We know over the last few films, the stunts in these films started to become just unrealistic and but it gives us that OMG type of stuff but this film clearly is now going over the top. In the last few films the team were using cars in more ways then just driving okay I am on board with that but now they have added Super Humans to the franchise. Yes Super Human. I guess they couldn’t find someone as big as the rock to give him someone real to battle instead they have to enhance a character to beat him. Still they didn’t need to go this over the top, now it seems like they are adding a comic book feel to it, which could hurt films 9 and 10.
Next thing is the title, Fast and Furious presents. This sounds stupid to harp on but titles can make and break a film and right now the last thing this film franchise needs is to lose a fan base because the numbers haven’t been there and I know The Fate of the Furious made over a billion dollars but here in the states the film failed to make its budget of 250 million here in the states and that is something that should been concerning.
The final thing is the movie itself, we have learned with the Star Wars is too much of one thing is a bad thing, Let’s be honest this film is basically fast and the furious 8.5 basically the plot is the same as the rest but with fewer main characters so when 9 comes just 7 months after this film comes out.
I’m not trying to bash this movie at all because there are somethings I did like from the trailer. Anything The Rock is in he can make into magic with him being funny and being a great action star. The laughs will come with this film with His Character interacting with Jason Statham character feuding well trying to work together. We know Jason isn’t funny on his own but with the right person he can be. I think it’s these two that will same this film and having them in the final two films will help them earn money.
Of course this all could work and things will be fine but we won’t know until the film comes out in August.

It’s no big deal,when you think about it right? Movie trailers come in bunches every week, in fact there are so many we often don’t even get around with viewing all of them but this week was a little different. The marketing campaign for films in 2017 has begun this week and things are looking good for Marvel Studios. They started this week and they ended the week with a bang, here are my reviews for this week trailers.
Let’s kick it off with Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2. The first full trailer pretty much shows us enough that it will be better or on par with the first film, we don’t any villains in this trailer just them showing off the comedy and drax over reaction to Star-Lord feelings with Glamora, and don’t forget Baby groot whose nothing more than but yet very powerful, it’s hard to be negative with this trailer so I can’t. This trailer is one of those few rewatchable trailers but it made me excited for the next trailer they release.
The next trailer is Unversal Studios very own The Mummy staring Tom Cruise This film is a reboot of The Mummy franchise that starred Brendan Fraiser. We know from the previous films, the film will be based on someone or something accidentally ressurecting a Mummy. this time it is a female instead of a male and the reason is still unclear as to why this mummy needed to be ressurected. This film marks the first film in Unversal studios shared universe, so my guess is they will make this film action packed so they don’t fail and casting Tom Cruise will help the finale product.
Transformer 5 or Transformers: The last Knight trailer dropped and nonetheless it looks like anyother Transformer film. Nothing is truly revealed except we havesome returning cast members from the first three films. And Optimus maybe hurting bumblebee afterit looks like he was lost in space either on his way back or to the creaters.Like another film in the series we see a glimpse of new Transformers. Even though the trailer is no different then the previous films, I do expect this film to do good.
We finally got to see the preview for the film Baywatch, at first it looked like it was going be a serious action film with The Rock doing his part with the action scenes but then enters Zac Efron and then you get to see this film is clealry a good action-comedy film, the trailer looks like this film could be a hit which will only add to the Rock resume.
Marvel saved the best for last and last night we got to see the first full trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming. This trailer shows we are going to have the nerdy but yet goofy Peter Parker and Spider-man. This time with the age of the actor being in high school, we get to see what high school is like for Peter. Clearly after civil war Peter been getting bored with school and who can blame. We get our first full look at vulture and a quick look at Shocker, both are making their film debuts but Vulture is the main baddie in this film. Tony Stark is in this film serving Peter mentor and even being in a Iron Man suite. However I doubt he will have screen time then Peter.
There will be more trailers coming soon for example War For the planet of the apes which should be a good the second film was so good I can’t expect this to be anything less then the first film of this series.
