Trailers You Might Have Missed … (April 18-24)

trailers

I’ve been lacking a little bit in the TV show department, but today there are some really exciting promos for one of my all time favourite show. But don’t you worry! I have plenty of movie trailers for you as well!

Movies

The Girl on the Train

I have not read the book! I feel like I should before the movie comes out though, even if I am not a thriller-kind-of-girl. Can anyone who’s read it tell me what they thought of the book? Is it worth the hype?

The Magnificent Seven

Looks good? I like the casting choice, but despite the era they are in, this doesn’t exactly scream “Let’s go see a Western” to me.

Equals

I think this looks magnificent. AURORA’s music, beautiful imagery, Nicholas Hoult and in this case, I think the role will work for Kristen too. Everyone always complained about her being not very expressive, that could be good in this kind of society, right?

Jason Bourne

I am not a massive fan of the movie franchise, but ALICIA VIKANDER! There wasn’t nearly enough of her in the trailer, so I will have to watch the whole thing.

The Founder

It’s the McDonald’s origin story! I am kind of sad to say that I learned about this in school, but reality is I did.

Café Society

I love old, glamorous Hollywood movies and then there’s Jesse Eisenberg too? Count me in!

Independence Day: Resurgence

I don’t know what to say here. Either you are into that kind of stuff or not, I guess.

TV Shows

Doctor Who: New Companion

I have never seen that actress before, but I like her. She already seems funny and clueless, as they should be in the beginning. Maybe she could have a kind of Donna-vibe? I would definitely like that!

Class

This is the new Doctor Who spin-off and the cast has already been shown, but we have yet to wait for a proper trailer. This bit is a little pointless, sorry!

What are you going to watch? How was your week? Tell me all about it!

  1. AHH, so many wonderful trailers this week! I’ve just watched The Girl on the Train’s and it looks sooo good. I haven’t read the book either, but it was really hyped – people are crazy about crime and have been since Gone Girl got so popular, I feel. I’m looking forward to Independence Day, but I love alien invasion movies in general (though I’m also very squeamish and easily freaked out by them). 😛

    • Right? The Girl on the Train was really, really hyped! I caved and read Gone Girl before the movie and it was a twisty book, but I am not sure that’s really my genre. But then again … I have this real urge to read books before watching movies hahaha
      I get it! I once heard the audio book for War of the Worlds and I was scared of aliens for a looong time. But I still like invasion movies and also when they are friendly and not invading, because aliens are kind of fascinating.

      • I hear you! I really enjoyed Gone Girl but that’s pretty much one of the only, like, three books I read of its genre, haha. I get wanting to read first before you watch the movie, though – I feel that way too but only with books I’m likely to read. 😛

        I feel like I don’t see a lot of friendly aliens these days, haha. In fact I can’t think of any off the top of my head… they’re normally power-hungry and ready to, well, invade the earth.

      • Yep, that genre has yet to be explored by me too, but I am not sure I even want to hahaha
        I’m watching Supergirl, so there are at least 5% friendly aliens in that one hahaha

  2. I’m going to read The Girl on the Train in before the movie comes out but I don’t want to watch the trailer until I read it!
    Equals seems like something I would enjoy watching and reading. Hope it’s as good as it seems!

    • Fair enough! I get not wanting to have any kind of prejudged impression of The Girl on the Train before reading it.
      It does look good, right? I hope it holds in a longer format as well. But I think the cinematography is beautiful already.

  3. So many amazing trailers this week. I’m trying not to let the hype surrounding The Girl on the Train get to me so I can just enjoy the film without the expectation of being blown away. Café Society definitely sounds like my kind of film so sign me up. I must admit I’ve never been a Doctor Who fan but the new companion does look like a good match. TV wise the new series of Game of Thrones is my most anticipated and in the mean time I’ve been slowly catching up on The Walking Dead. 😀

    • I agree! There are a ton of good ones this week!
      Hype is a dangerous thing. On the one hand it can create awareness for something amazing, on the other hand it can destroy a story by putting too much pressure on it. I am trying not to get too swept up in it either, but I am terribly tempted to go and pick up the book soon though.
      Game of Thrones! YAY! It’s on tonight or tomorrow in my case. I can’t wait to see what happened with some of my favourites.

      • I didn’t even know it was based on a book until I googled it haha.
        I don’t think I’ll be able to stay awake for 2am to watch Thrones tonight so I’m definitely going to be avoiding social media until I watch it. All I know is one way or another Jon Snow will be back haha.

  4. Three things:
    1. I’m planning on listening to the audio book for Girl on the Train after Morning Star and Gone Girl, so this trailer makes me look forward to having a listen.
    2. Independence Day: Resurgence looks like such fun!
    3. I have a theory on the new companion Bill: I think she might be from the eighties or nineties. She doesn’t know what a Dalek is, and although people in the DW universe can have short memories (the folks in Series 8 certainly didn’t connect the Cybermen to the same ones that invaded in Series 2 for whatever reason), after Series 4 everyone on Earth far from a crack should know what a Dalek is. She may be from the past, which would explain why she doesn’t know what a Dalek is, and her clothes look like they’re from the late 80’s/early 90’s. It would also explain why the Doctor makes a Back to the Future reference. It would not be his future he was referring to, but her future.
    What do you think? Possibility, or am I reaching?

  5. A movie perfect for Kristen Stewart, too true. Equals gives me big Delirium vibes though, a world without love and two people falling in love… but I’ll still watch it! And Magnificent Seven looks super epic, so excited for it.

  6. I read The Girl on the Train. It wasn’t my favorite. I found it to be kind of boring. I think the fact that they tried to publicize it as “the next Gone Girl” kind of ruined it for me. I didn’t think it was bad, it was just kind of blah. I’ll watch the movie, though. I can already see one big change they made from the book.

  7. All those trailers looked intriguing! I’ve felt a bit underwhelmed recently by what is on at the cinema but it looks like there are some great ones coming up. I particularly like the look of Equals and the Bourne movie… and I don’t think I’ll be able to resist Independence Day Resurgence – too much associated nostalgia for me not to get excited about it 🙂

    • Happy to hear you saw some movies that caught your interest 😀 I feel like there are tons of remakes and more of the same in theatres these days, which is a shame. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of a nostalgia bomb, but there should be something new and exciting every now and then.

      • Yes true, I’m always in two minds about remakes and sequels. On the one hand they can get tired and old (and there are so many bad ones) and I’d like to see more new things, on the other hand I often feel hypocritical because when sequels I love/feel nostalgic about come along I can’t help but go see them! Anyway, I do hope the industry doesn’t get any more sequel-saturated. Hopefully adaptations of books will counteract it a bit, because they still provide an existing fan base but are bringing something new to the screen (not new in general of course, but new to the cinema).

      • I agree that book adaptations are a sort of safe bet, while still bringing something new to the screen. However, did you notice the lack of good teen RomComs these days? All they do in the YA sector is dystopians now and the ones they do make are split up into more parts than there are books. I can’t really approve of that all the time either to be honest.

        Liked by 1 person

      • Yes I guess it’s mostly YA dystopias and paranormal romances now… there aren’t many films out there in the vein of ‘Easy A’ or ‘Ten Things I Hate About You’… maybe teen romcoms will come back into fashion at some point though?

        And I totally agree about the multiple instalments and splitting up books… it’s just absolute overkill and gets annoying (with Hunger Games I feel like it kind of put people off and made them lose interest… but maybe the box office stats would contradict me!)

      • I hope they do. I miss movies like Cinderella Story or She’s the Man. All they ever do is made my Nickelodeon and Disney Channel and for 14-year-olds.
        I guess it really works for them in terms of money. People need to know how it ends after all.

  8. The music for the Equals trailer is SO GOOD! And it actually looks interesting so I’ll be keeping an eye out for it!
    Cafe Society also looks good, but I don’t know if I want to watch because of the plot or because of Eisenberg…
    I’m unsure about the new companion, I’m hoping and praying she’s actually kickass and funny, but I feel she can easily be annoying as well.
