Every Friday here at Flavorwire, we like to gather up the week’s new movie trailers, give them a look-see, and rank them from worst to best — while taking a guess or two about what they might tell us (or hide from us) about the movies they’re promoting. This week, we’ve got the teaser for the (hopefully) final Twilight movie, along with new films from Jenna Fischer, Chris Pine, Adam Sandler, Val Kilmer, Aubrey Plaza, Jesse Eisenberg, and more. Check ’em all out after the jump, and share your thoughts in the comments.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
Here’s what’s enjoyable about being (as I’ve confessed before) utterly ignorant of the entirety of the Twilight empire: You can see a brief teaser trailer like this, which is pitched specifically to the “Twi-hards,” and take it as utter, absurdist nonsense. “We’re the same temperature now” is a line in a movie? Why is the not-pale guy wearing a flesh suit? Why is Kristen Stewart glaring at deer in the woods? Take it out of context: this assemblage of random images looks like the demo reel of a crazy person. Try walking up to someone on the street and explaining the sequence of events to them. (“The girl’s in the woods, and it’s her chance to shine, and the guy with the abs thinks she’s like herself, and the other guy says they’re the same temperature, and she’s gonna eat that deer!“) They’ll have you committed. It’s fun!
