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’s five new trailers feature Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Melanie Lynskey, and Mike Birbiglia; check ‘em all out after the jump, and share your thoughts in the comments.
Christopher Neil’s comedy/drama was one of the more forgettable movies at Sundance this year — not a bad film, just not a particularly memorable one, and one in which a cast of likable performers mostly spin their wheels at the service of its done-to-death coming-of-age narrative. So kudos to the trailer for giving such an accurate sense of the film it’s representing; it looks here like a movie you’ve seen many times before, and it is. And how about that convincing beard on Mr. Duchovny, eh?
