Welcome to “Trailer Park,” our regular Friday feature where we collect the week’s new trailers all in one place and do a little “judging a book by its cover,” ranking them from worst to best and taking our best guess at what they may be hiding. We’ve got seven new trailers this week, mostly of the artsie-indie breed, though there’s a couple of genre picks in there as well. Check ‘em out after the jump.
Hostel Part III
There’s a naked honesty about the direct-to-DVD sequel — its mere existence states, in no uncertain terms, “We didn’t think there was actually any further artistry or quality to be bled out of this franchise; we merely would like to squeeze some more money out of you, the consumer.” And so joining the ranks of the American Pie, Bring It On, and From Dusk Till Dawn franchises is… Hostel. Yep, that’s right, this is the movie that didn’t have to aspire to the high artistic standards of the Hostel pictures. Still, kudos to whoever decided to maximize profit by making it a simultaneous rip-off the Hostel movies and The Hangover.
