Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Jan 16-22)

trailers

It was quite the eventful week, with terrible but also inspiring things happening. I am also really happy with how the first #CurrentlyWatching post (which you can read here) turned out and can’t wait to do more with that feature in the future. But let’s not go too far and look at which trailers and promos were released in the past couple of days instead:

Movies

Colossal

I laughed … this looks weirdly brilliant.

Logan

I am really looking forward to this! (Also love hearing Kaleo’s song in the trailer)

Power Rangers

WE GET TO SEE THE SUITS! They don’t look exactly like I pictured them, but I am SO EXCITED.

 

I Am Michael

Okay, so, I have problems with this trailer. The summary states “A gay activist and magazine founder is saved from his homosexuality after turning to God.” and that it is based on a true story, but … you cannot be “saved” from homosexuality? What is this? My assumption was, and please not that this is only my opinion, that the movie might be about him being bi and the real tragedy being that society forces him to choose one or the other, but that was not the case … I don’t know. I mean, it’s okay if you change your opinion about your sexuality, but it just feels wrong the way they phrased it. There is no cure and there isn’t one necessary, religion isn’t going to and shouldn’t suddenly make you straight. Anyway, there are a couple of gay actors in it though and I feel like they wouldn’t have wanted to be part of it if it were homophobic. (Longest comment on a trailer in the history of these posts …)

A Bunch of upcoming Netflix originals

Netflix knows what they are doing (most of the time – not sure about all of those)!

The Ottoman Lieutenant

Oh boy, Michiel Huisman AND Josh Hartnett, be still my beating heart …

The Nut Job 2

Don’t think I’ve watched the first movie, but it looks kind of cute/funny.

1 Night

I like all those stories where one night can change everything (preferably for the better).

TV Shows

Snatch

I NEED to watch this, because I love all those guys. Luke Pasqualino, Rupert Grint and Ed Westwick is kind of an epic combo.

The Magicians (Season 2)

THIS UPCOMING WEEEEEEEK!

Reign (Season 4)

Honestly haven’t watched this since Season 1.

Powerless

Wasn’t sure if I showed the entire promo or just a teaser, so here you go.

Santa Clarita Diet

I could see people enjoying this, but not me. Zombies are not my jam most of the time.

What are you watching? What are you going to check out?

  1. 1. Colossal…I want to see it.
    2.Logan looks great.
    3. Finally, a trailer for Power Rangers we can get pumped about. And that music is awesome. I hope it shows up in the actual film.
    4.I got angry after reading the description for I Am Michael. I will not even watch its trailer. It’s my duty as an LGBT person to stand up to ignorance like this.
    5. The Discovery looks interesting.
    6. I saw some anime trailers yesterday for some new movies. Is anime big in Austria? Are you even a fan of it? I feel like I asked a long time ago, but I don’t remember.

    • What do you mean “finally a trailer we can get pumped about”, I was MAJORLY excited when I saw the first trailer for Power Rangers. Like over the moon intrigued.
      About I Am Michael, it has Zachary Quinto and Max Carver in it, which as I said, makes me believe that there has to be something not homophobic in it or they wouldn’t have been willing to work on the project. I don’t know who wrote that one-liner though, because that just sounds wrong.
      I only ever watched One Piece or stuff like that. Anime is as big in Austria as it is anywhere I suppose, but it depends on which scene you are in. I am not personally in it.

  2. Luke Pasqualino, Rupert Grint and Ed Westwick, oh how I feel blessed. Talk about a beautiful cast. ❤
    Hugh Jackman will forever be Wolverine. No one can replace him and I'm so excited to watch Logan.

  3. This Power Ranger trailer sort of got me on board (I actually hated the first trailer that came out; reminded me a lot of the newest Fantastic Four we got and how bad that was). But I still wouldn’t be surprised if it flops… I’d probably watch it like how I watch the Transformer movies nowadays. Just for them pretty special effects. 😀

  4. I’M HERE!!
    Colossal looks hilarious! What kind of weird concept is that?
    And I’m SOOO excited for Logan, that trailer has me really curious.
    The Power Rangers made my childhood so seeing it made into a movie brings up all the memories of me pretending to be one and fighting with my cousins over which ones we were hahaha.
    Also, 1 Nght sounds right up my alley, I love movies like that as well.
