5 Best Movie Trailers of the Week

This week presented great movie trailers and some not so great movie trailers. Here we will have a quick rundown on the five best movie trailers of the week. Sorry, A Wrinkle in Time did not make the cut.

Pacific Rim: Uprising

As a teaser Pacific Rim: Uprising is entertaining. A robotic woman's voice describes what Jaegers are and why we as a collective audience should "join the uprising." Then John Boyega shows up ready to fight in his Jaeger. That's pretty much the end of the teaser, but enough to wet any fanboy's appetite. Pacific Rim was a great film and didn't get the love it deserved when it was released. Hopefully, Uprising delivers what made Pacific Rim so great and audiences show. Charlie Day and Scott Eastwood also star. Pacific Rim: Uprising is scheduled for release on February 23, 2018.


The Disaster Artist

About the making of one of the worst films of all-time The Room, James Franco has Oscar-worthy buzz dripping just from the movie trailer below. Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, the actor, director, and writer of The Room. Funny enough the film stars and is directed by James Franco. The Disaster Artist is a quick tease, but hilarious look at what can only be called wishful fiction (Wiseau honestly could not have been that bad). An all-star cast, including Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, and Lizzy Caplan will be joining Franco. The Disaster Artist is scheduled for release on December 8, 2017.


The Snowman

Based on the novel by Jo Nesbø and starring Rebecca Ferguson and Michael Fassbender, The Snowman centers around two detectives working furiously to solve a murder case before the murderer strikes again. The trailer helps illuminate the horrific combination of snow and murders. There's always an unsettling bleakness to it that chills to the bone. Fassbender and Ferguson look to put on grade-A performances. Val Kilmer and James D'Arcy also star in undisclosed roles. The Snowman is scheduled for release on October 20, 2017.


Wind River

Written and directed by the phenomenal, ultra-talented Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water), Wind River tells the story of an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who heads to a Native American reservation to investigate a murder. It seems that this is the year where we get some cold-blooded murder mysteries (see above). The trailer is packed with gorgeous shots and a whole lotta Native Americans not dressed as cliched Native Americans. Jon Bernthal and Jeremy Renner also star. Wind River is scheduled for release on August 4, 2017.


Bright

Netflix's flagship title, Bright follows two police officers, one a human and one an orc, as they fight against a bunch of elves, orcs, and fellow humans, after the two find a wand that grants wishes. Directed by David Ayer (End of Watch, Suicide Squad), written by Max Landis (Chronicle), and starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, Bright shows all the right signs of a true blockbuster. Oddly enough, the film's trailer looks more like a fantasy version of End of Watch than anything else. It's still a great peek into Netflix's upcoming film ventures and Ayer's future prospects. Bright is scheduled for release in December 2017.
