I love movie trailers, sometimes more than the movies themselves. Over the last month, four new trailers have caught my attention.
Rogue One. I love Star Wars and the Rogue One trailer is chocked full of Star Wars awesomeness. We'll see if the movie is as good as I hope it is, but it looks like the Star Wars I grew up with. Yavin 4. Death Star. Mon Mothma. AT-ATs. I'm excited to get more Star Wars for Christmas this year.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. As a fan of Harry Potter, I'm both excited and nervous about a new trilogy of films set in the Harry Potter universe. Much like Rogue One, the look of the trailer is perfect. It looks like a Harry Potter movie set in Prohibition-era New York. So much potential, but we'll see if it lives up to the original.
Suicide Squad. I love the DC television universe with Flash and Arrow, but I haven't been as impressed with the DC cinematic world. This trailer is obviously intended to highlight Harley Quinn, and they expect her to be the breakout character from the movie. The trailer is fun, but I'm not expecting much from the movie. I am expecting Harley Quinn Halloween costumes to be popular with the teenagers and college students this year.
Dr. Strange. I grew up a Marvel fan, but more on the X-Men side of the universe. I don't know much about Dr. Strange. The trailer does a nice job of setting up the magical corner of the MCU, with just a quick tease of the costume at the end of the trailer. Marvel has done a great job introducing lesser known properties, like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant Man. We'll see if Dr. Strange is Marvel's next success.
