It’s official. We’ve trailer fever. There’s no doubt about it. In a world where Netflix and chill is the norm and enticing us to go out and catch a flick is getting harder, a trailer can lead a film to global success or miss 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 are huge fans on all things ‘film’. Whether it be our least favourite Japanese ghost-girl returning once again to make a throat sound that no one wants to hear, or Martin Lawrence clearly ageing while Will Smith remains immortal– if the trailers red-hot, we’ll have a gander and let you know about it. So without further ado, here is Man of Many’s list of Must-See Movie Trailers in November 2019.
Bad Boys For Life Trailer #2
Even in the pre-trailer trailer, there was a dickload of shots fired, so you know you’re in for what you’re looking for. Without spoiling the whole thing for you, this trailer show that ya boy’s Mike LOAWWWWREY & Marcus are getting on in years – Marcus more than Mike, obviously – and they’ve been paired up with a younger, more millenial team – and the old school v new school banter ensues from there. And the explosions. And the swearing. TBH, we couldn’t be more pumped for this godamn action-movie masterpiece to-be, so be sure to check it out when the film hits cinema’s in January.
Cats Trailer #2
The film with an alleged 300 million dollar budget, Cats could have bitten off more catnip than it can feasibly chew – despite its star-studded cast. In this trailer, we see that the value of the film lies in Idris Elba & James Corden’s performances (considering how much time they are afforded in 1 minute and thirty-eight-second trailer) and that Jason Derulo may have committed career suicide.
Sonic The Hedgehog New Trailer
Aptly named a ‘new’ trailer, thanks to the utter clusterfuck that was the film maker’s interpretation of how ‘live-action’ sonic should look, the ‘new sonic’ is thankful, not utterly terrifying – turns out that cyber-bullying huge corporations is, in fact, a great way to effect change. The trailer tells us nothing new by way of plot, however, we do get to see a bit more Jim Carrey being, well, Jim Carrey. And that’s got to count for something, right?
The Invisible Man Trailer #1
Starring Elizabeth Moss and backed by Blumhouse Productions (The Conjuring, Insidious) comes a very terrifying idea for a film: what if your ex-partner was a domestically violent, sadist piece-of-shit who apparently dies (yay) but then comes back, and now he’s invisible. So basically able to emotionally and physically abuse with even more efficacy. We’d go so far as to say ‘trigger warning’ on this trailer since the filmmakers haven’t.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run Trailer #1
Including this trailer out of sheer due diligence, as for some perplexing reason, there are many adults who indulge in a bit of Spongebob Squarepants, although god knows why. However, we do get to gaze upon His holiness, Keanu ‘carry your shopping to your car’ Reeves, who does feature in a pretty sweet cameo A.K.A there is a millenial producer on the film.
Jumanji: The Next Level Final Trailer
The revamp that we didn’t know we needed but actually ended up enjoying overall, Jumanji: The Next Level is the family Christmas movie that’s kinda really for adults – and we’re all for it. The gang are all back in the game, but this time it’s glitching, meaning the characters get to meta-perform even more than the first film, so cue Jack Black being extra as hell. Which again, we’re fine with. The Nick Jonas cameo, however, less so.
Fantasy Island Trailer #1
Just taking a moment to appreciate how far the Horror genre has come, and to toast Blumhouse for making what appears to be yet another awesome scream-flick with an original premise. Starring Lucy Hale, Fantasy Island allows its guests to play out 1x fantasy of their choosing – however, not everyone opts for something light and fluffy. As you can imagine, people will die on Fantasy Island. Which is kinda why you’d even think about buying a ticket to this movie.
The Irishman Final Trailer
Whilst this writer is pretty over writing about Scorcese’s The Irishman, some of you may still be frothin’ for it, so here it is, for the final bloody time: The Irishman Final trailer shows us that Scorsese is not in a laughing mood. Somehow grittier and more serious than many of his other films, the reviews are in and boy, they are glowing. Backed by allegedly powerhouse performances from Joe Pesci, Al Pacino and Robert Deniro, we’re certain that Martin the movie maestro has done it again, folks.
The Banker Trailer #1
In what very well could be a good film, but will most likely fly under most people’s radars, The Banker stars Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie and is a story of overcoming prejudice, by being cleverer than your opposition. In this case, the opposition is a racist America in what appears to be the 1950’s. Slicker and funnier than you might expect, the Banker is definitely one to catch on Blu-Ray or Youtube Movies if you’d prefer to save your cinema budget for something with a few more explosions.
The Grudge Trailer #1
In what is a supremely fucked trailer that will stir up horrible memories for Millenials who can still feel the trauma of the first western franchise, The Grudge looks to be less tacky, and twice as scary as its predecessor. Warning: that cooked throat sound features heavily in the latter half of the trailer so it would be our suggestion to watch with the lights ‘on’.
