It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday!!! For those of you who don’t know, Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish! The theme this week was Movie Freebie! Now I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m a huge movie buff. I absolutely love watching movies and I was so excited to choose a theme revolving around films! I’ve decided to highlight some of my favourite MOVIE TRAILERS! I’ve chosen each trailer for a variety of different reasons and I hope you all enjoy watching them as much as I did!
Suicide Squad (2016)
A secret government agency recruits some of the most dangerous incarcerated super-villains to form a defensive task force. Their first mission: save the world from the apocalypse.
I’ll be honest. I still haven’t seen Suicide Squad, but can we all just admit that this trailer was perfection? When I first saw this trailer I was SO pumped for the film. The use of Bohemian Rhapsody is probably what got me to be honest. Unfortunately, the film didn’t get the best reviews, so I think I’ll just stick to watching the trailer on repeat for now.
Requiem For A Dream (2000)
The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
This movie is dark, depressing and a little bit of a trip. I think that this trailer captured that perfectly. Honestly, the trailer speaks for itself, but you should make this movie a priority if you haven’t already seen it!
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
In future Britain, Alex DeLarge, a charismatic and psycopath delinquent, who likes to practice crimes and ultra-violence with his gang, is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society’s crime problem – but not all goes according to plan.
Much like Requiem For A Dream, A Clockwork Orange is also a really dark, disturbing and trippy film. Once again, I think that this trailer does a great job at depicting that. The quick frames feels like subliminal messaging, much like the film that Alex is forced to watch as part of his “therapy”. A Clockwork Orange is one of my favourite films of all time and I always recommend giving it a try, although, I know a lot of people find it a bit too disturbing to sit through.
Sausage Party (2016)
A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence.
This is another film that I haven’t watched yet, but the trailer gets me every time. The first time I saw it I honestly thought it was for a new children’s animated film. The first couple seconds of the trailer really had me fooled and then BAM, it just goes rogue. I can’t wait to see this film as it looks incredibly hilarious.
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
A woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in postapocalyptic Australia in search for her home-land with the help of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshipper, and a drifter named Max.
Mad Max: Fury road is a super quick and fast paced film, much like this trailer. A lot of these trailers are honestly capturing their respective films perfectly.
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)
Time-traveling agent Valerian is sent to investigate a galactic empire, along with his partner Laureline.
This trailer was actually only released a few days ago, but I had heard about this film quite a while ago. I knew nothing about the graphic novel that the film is based on so seeing this trailer really tripped me out. It’s nothing like I expected this film to be based on the promo shots. I love the use of Because by The Beatles in this trailer, much like the use of Bohemian Rhapsody in the Suicide Squad trailer above. I also LOVE Dane DeHaan so I’m so ready for this film.
T2: Trainspotting (2017)
A continuation of the Trainspotting saga reuniting the original characters.
Much like A Clockwork Orange, Trainspotting is one of those films that is meant to trip you out. I mean it is a film about drug addiction. However, I was able to sit through A Clockwork Orange. Once I got to the baby scene in Trainspotting, I had to turn it off. I actually felt queasy watching it. I’ve been tempted to finish the film, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. Then this trailer for the sequel was dropped…and it looks amazing.
The Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014)
A group of intergalactic criminals are forced to work together to stop a fanatical warrior from taking control of the universe.
This one is just plain fun. I know I keep talking about a lot of dark and twisted films here, but that’s just my interest in films I guess. Once in a while though, you need something to cheer you up. That’s where Guardians of the Galaxy comes in. What a fun film & trailer!
When Louis Bloom, a driven man desperate for work, muscles into the world of L.A. crime journalism, he blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story. Aiding him in his effort is Nina, a TV-news veteran.
This trailer is just everything. I remember seeing it as Nightcrawler was announced as a film that would be screening at TIFF in 2014. Although I couldn’t get in to the film, I did get to see it twice afterward. It got even better the second time I watched it. Yes, this film is also dark and creepy, but it’s just so good. YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE MONEY TO BUY A TICKET!
Illustrated upon the progress of his latest Broadway play, a former popular actor’s struggle to cope with his current life as a wasted actor is shown.
Another film that was released around the time of TIFF 2014. I didn’t get to see this one in theatres, but I knew based on this trailer alone that it was something that I absolutely needed to see.
Do you agree with the trailers that I’ve chosen? Have I missed any of your favourites? Let’s discuss!
Thank you for reading!
