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 Margot Robbie with an even thicker accent in ‘The Suicide Squad’ or Jason Statham playing Jason Statham in ‘The Wrath of Man’ – 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 March 2021.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD Trailer
Already we can see James Gunn’s energy behind the camera is different (and better). The opening scene in the trailer has Gunn almost throwing the camera left to right between John Cena (who’s wearing a bedpan on his head) and Idris Elba reloading and tossing the piece in the back. From that moment on, you know that this film will, at the very least, not suck as badly as its predecessor. Plot-wise, it’s much of the same: bad guys, doing good things. And Margot Robbie getting way too much praise for playing Harley Quinn moderately-well. But we’ve got new characters now – including Pete Davidson and an adorable Sharkman. Plus, it’s R-rated. Like it always bloody should have been.
Voyagers Official Teaser
The new Voyagers movie looks like a pubescent music video; skin grazing, open mouths, snakes, lip biting and hot neon pink super text. We’re just hoping there’s a movie under all that lip gloss. With the future of the human race at stake, a group of young men and women, bred for intelligence and obedience, embark on an expedition to colonize a distant planet – of course, something goes terribly wrong and these smart-cookies turn into lusty wafer-crisps.
Concrete Cowboys Official Trailer
A soulful adaptation of the novel ‘Ghetto Cowboy’ by G.Neri, Concrete Cowboys follows a troubled teen (Caleb McLaughlin) and his summer in North Philadelphia is as he gets caught between a life of crime and his estranged father’s (Idris Elba) vibrant urban-cowboy subculture. Whilst this may seem like hard work to watch due to its depth and timeliness, the book was undoubtedly an incredible read – so even if the movie is half as good, it’s worth your time.
Wrath of Man Trailer #1
Kick. Bang. Wallop! Jason Statham is back in cinemas, ready to claw through the screen and uppercut your S.O for shuffling to the bathroom during one of eleven car chases. Honestly, though, this movie looks effing sick. Directed by Guy Ritchie, Wrath of Man is the tale of a man hell-bent on revenge after the death of his son during a heist gone wrong. As a moody remix of the already pretty moody ‘Folsom Prison’ wafts through each scene, we’re treated to cockney one-liners and multiple headshots. Nuff said.
THE NIGHT HOUSE Trailer
We’re going to level with you: the majority of this trailer is boring AF. Honestly, there couldn’t be a blander cast, a more tired setting or a flat first glimpse at the scary stuff. Then, miraculously it goes full ‘GET OUT’ and starts to make sweet love to your grey matter until you don’t remember the bad feelings about the trailer anymore. You’re just hyped for something that looks like it might have some brains. Or not, let’s wait and see – the annals of movie history is littered with promising trailers and cruddy films.
Initiation Exclusive Trailer
You’d be forgiven for assuming that this was a B-Grade flick because it’s got all the hallmark traits: No-name line-up. Scintillating reviews from lesser read publications. Sex vibes early in the trailer to hook horny viewers who only care about the #thirst. There’s a lot of evidence to suggest this movie sucks. But, if you look carefully, there just could be a decent horror flick here. Something about the ‘Social Network’ vibe it’s going on, coupled with a tech-smart, TikTok savvy killer as the main villain (he’d just as soon as fix your nans TV as he would murder her) indicates more than meets the eye.
Holy smokes, this looks good. A space thriller about an earth preferrer who passes out while working on a spaceship, and discovers hours later that he’s in space – and embarking on a two-year mission to Mars. The characters look genuine, space scares naturally occurring rather than one passenger going mad or Aliens – Stowaway might just be a fresh take.
Werewolf movie alert!!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL. In what could be the first proper werewolf movie since Teen Wolf Too (and we’re talking all werewolf, not just a side character) Bloodthirsty looks like a decent attempt at legitimising the furry beast that has long since fallen out of favour with Hollywood – with a soundtrack that simply HOWLS with moody piano and will certainly TRANSFORM your Friday night horror sesh into something with….you know what? Two puns are enough. That’s all you’re getting. There is simply no need for a third, over-the-top, gratuitous double-entendre that barely gets a smirk and a slight nose-exhale. At this stage, we’re not even sure why we did the first two.
Here’s a joke instead: How do you stop a werewolf howling in your back garden? Put him in your front garden.
