Like I said in earlier posts, these last five trailers to be highlighted are special for their individual reasons. Avengers: Infinity War is a special trailer because of the joy it provides through its reveals of the characters and its choice of musical composition which brings a unique quality to the trailer unlike anything I’ve seen in another comic book movie trailer.
Now, we tackle Logan and why its trailer is so stellar. Here it is.
Okay, here’s the thing about this trailer. I’ve never seen a song match a trailer so well. Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” is so perfect for this trailer. The grim words of the song matches the dark tone of the trailer, the clips shown hide the true weaving of the story, allowing plenty of surprise for viewers of the film in theaters, and it just sounds so perfect with this trailer. Oh, speaking of theaters, that is when I first saw this trailer.
I sat in that theater, pressed back against my seat as the trailer (in IMAX) bombarded me with that song that left me just…shook. It’s also rewarding to know that the movie is as good as the trailer.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
