We're gonna try something new with trailers. As opposed to posting every single new one that comes out, we'll instead do a weekly post about all the trailers with an opinion blurb afterwards.
The trailer for Lost in Space is, according to Netflix, "a cross between E.T. and Jurassic Park". I'm not exactly sure where the Jurassic Park comes in after watching the trailer. Overall, Lost in Space looks extremely generic and doesn't have my interest at all.
Next up, we have a date announcement for Season 2 of Luke Cage. Not much substance to this with it only being ~25 seconds but it has me excited for the next part of Luke Cage's story.
Admittedly, I wasn't as high on A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 as much as others were. Eventually, I got very tired of Count Olaf disguising himself and characters not believing the Baudelaires even though they were proven right time and time again. While that does seem to continue in Season 2, the gags seems to be evolving so this will still be one I look forward to checking out.
Take Your Pills is all about Adderall and how it's become common place in society amongst twenty-somethings in order to be more productive. It's an interesting dive into a common prescription for ADD and a look at how it's changed us as time has passed.
As a general rule, I don't watch second trailers for anything. It's all up to the first trailer to grab me, and if it doesn't, I pass on something. That said, I present you with the second Game Over, Man! trailer.
Santa Clarita Diet was a pleasant surprise last year. I didn't expect a comedy about a woman becoming a flesh eater to actually be fun. My assumption was that this would die on the vine. Now, here I am, looking forward to Season 2.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was one of my favorite parts of The Get Down. Now he's back in this film about a teenage daughter who joins her high school wrestling team in order to gain his approval. Abdul-Mateen is a compulsively watchable actor so pretty much anything he's in is something I find worth checking out.
The final trailer is for Requiem a series about a woman discovering a connection between her now deceased mother and the unsolved case of a missing child. I'm all for dark thrillers, especially when they seem to have some sci-fi and creepiness attached to them. This is one I'll be looking at for sure.
