One of the reasons why I was so excited to see the Super Bowl was for the trailers. I’m, as you can tell from my blog, a huge movie lover and so to be able to see so many fabulous movie trailers in one night is a blast for me. Today I’m going to share with you all of the trailers from the Super Bowl that managed to blow my mind. Enjoy!
I’m not a big fan of movies with Dwayne Johnson in them. They’re usually super corny and films that I just don’t want to see but I have to say, this one interested me a little bit. The story is intriguing and, if executed right, could be really enjoyable. I would totally go see this if I’m having a boring day and I just want to see an action flick.
A Quiet Place
The first time I saw the trailer for this movie was during Justice League and it frightened the mess out of me. The theater was so densely quiet and I was trying to figure out what was going on. I am not a horror film fan whatsoever. I mean I used to cry at Michael Jackson’s Thriller when I was a young child for crying out loud, that’s how much I don’t like scary stuff, but this movie’s plot is so terrifyingly interesting I want to see it.
What is it that they have to stay quiet about? What is going on? I like that the trailers are providing enough tantalizing imagery while keeping the secret of what the horrific villain, or villains will be. That’s great marketing because the only way I’m going to find out who it is their hiding from is if I go see it in the movies. Smart move, Paramount, smart move.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
This trailer had me immediately engaged due to its horrifying beginning. I mean that’s the worst way to wake up right? *shudder* Then as the trailer goes along it slightly veers away from that horror aspect that the trailer began with but it still had me engaged.
What this trailer conveyed to me was that the creators behind the Jurassic Park franchise have realized we, as viewers, don’t exactly care about a story. We want dinosaurs! The more and more dinosaurs you have the more enjoyable the film will be for everyone watching the movie in IMAX and this Jurassic World movie is no exception. They’re going to make sure that they have you watching the movie afraid at every turn, at every monstrous growl rumbling through the theater, and at every open dinosaur maw filled with racks of knife-sharp teeth about to eat someone. I appreciate that because that’s the only reason why I enjoyed the last one. It was a monster movie and I enjoyed every bit of the screaming humans and roaring dinosaurs rattling my brain in that IMAX theater andI know I’m going to have a great time again watching more screaming humans and more roaring dinosaurs in this sequel. 🙂
