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. We’ve got a boatload of new trailers this week — many of them from Cannes, which is after all not just a film festival but a film market, where foreign rights are sold and trailers are thus trotted out. So we’ve got new films from name directors like Paul Thomas Anderson, Sam Mendes, and Baz Luhrmann, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Carey Mulligan, Jackie Chan, Joaquin Phoenix, and his late brother River. Check ’em all out after the jump, and share your thoughts in the comments.
This glimpse at Todd Lincoln’s late summer horror thriller looks less like a trailer than a recipe: combine two cups of Insidious, a dash of the ending of The Silence of the Lambs, a J-horror ghost, the score of Inception, and a generous helping of Paranormal Activity, puree and serve for an undemanding audience. And while Twilight’s Ashley Greene is certainly a lovely young lady, are all of her line readings going to be this wooden? (Something tells me the fans of that franchise won’t mind.)
