It’s official. We still have trailer fever. There’s no doubt about it. In a world where Apple TV+ & foot rubs are the new norm, and enticing us to go out and catch a flick is getting harder; a trailer can lead a film to global success or be the catalyst for missing its mark in the box office. As a result, we’ve seen an unprecedented effort put into the crafting of spine-tingling teasers and tantalising trailers. But the fact remains – not all trailers are made equal.
Here at Man of Many, we know trailers, man. Whether it’s Nic Cage hunting down who stole his oinker in ‘PIG’ or John Cena talking about buttholes in ‘The Suicide Squad’ – if the trailer’s red-hot, we’ll have a gander and let you know about it. So without further ado, here is a list of the Best New Movie trailers that dropped in June 2021.
PIG Official Trailer
Don’t steal Nicolas Cage’s pig, man. That’s his pig. Because he’s a chef, man. A chef with a pig. A pet pig, that’s his. Don’t take it. Because he’ll come hunt you down, even if you’re a chef too. Because if you’re a chef with a pig, it’s probably his pig. And he’ll kill you for it. The pig, that is. Nic Cage’s pig.
Don’t Breathe 2 Trailer #1
They say love is blind, and so is murder in this case. Don’t Breathe 2 ‘The Breathining’ is a classic revenge story. The killer (who seems to be more of a creepy anti-hero) is like John Wick crossed with Father Time. He uses his Daredevil sonar to track down his victims and slaughter them with the level of innovation you’d expect from IBM. Whilst it’s nothing particularly new, this film looks well filmed, well acted and like it will deliver on getting your heart racing.
Jungle Cruise Skipper Frank Trailer
Shut the f*ck up, Dwayne. We love you to bits, but how dare you start this trailer off like it’s a corporate presentation. Let us join a few dots, man. This, combined with Paul Giamatti’s caricature of an Italian accent, and Indiana Jones styled action sequences without Harrison Ford in sight, is nearly unforgivable. But as always, we smell what the Rock is cooking: the movie to save the movies in a post-COVID US of A.
The Many Saints of Newark Trailer #1
The hype is real. Gandolfini Jr. Someone getting called a ‘jerkoff’ in the first 10s of the trailer. Guns. Gabagool. The Many Saints of Newark is the movie that Gen-X has been waiting for and it’s finally nearly here. For those of you who haven’t seen the Sopranos, now is the time to start – you don’t want to miss the fan service.
Halloween Kills Trailer #1
Will this guy friggin die already? And since when did Jamie Lee Curtis look like she was wearing a mask more than Mike Myers? A cheap shot to be sure, but then again, so is this punt at reviving a very tired cash cow. For avid fans, this will surely meet expectations, perhaps even exceed them. For newcomers, welcome to the never-ending merry-go-round that is the Halloween series.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Trailer #1
Starring half of the cast of Crazy Rich Asians, Shang-Chi & The Legend of the Ten Rings looks epic, colourful and it has a dragon. We repeat, we have a dragon, people. Laced with martial arts, super powered rings, patriarchal figures and Akwafina (yas), we have no doubt this is going to deliver on the Marvel promise of excellence.
The Suicide Squad Trailer #3
Directed by James Gunn (Guardians of The Galaxy), The Suicide Squad reboot boasts an exquisite set of trailers. And yet, so did the first one. But with Pete Davis, Idris Elba, John Cena, Margot Robbie, and more high-level talent, we’re feeling confident that we’re in for a twisted treat that promises violence and laughs in unequal measure.
