There’s been a bunch of trailers hitting the net over the last week, so for your convenience we’ve rounded them up into one handy post! You can thank us later, just settle in and feast your eyes on these:
The first trailer for The Ridiculous 6, Adam Sandler’s first film for his Netflix deal, has premiered and the results are underwhelming. He’s managed to con a boatload of people into appearing in this garbage, but it just seems a little lazy and more stupid than funny.
Continuing the comedy vein, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg team up for the dueling dads tale Daddy’s Home. Ferrell is always better when he has someone to bounce of (Old School, Anchorman), and Wahlberg has shown he has the comedy goods. This looks to be playing to each guy’s strengths and there’s a couple chuckles in the trailer, so it seems promising.
The final entry in our comedy trifecta is the Zac Efron/Robert DeNiro grandpa gone wild pic Dirty Grandpa. In the vein of Bad Neighbours, this looks like a chance for DeNiro to let loose a bit which is fun. Add in a liberal, and always welcome, slather of Aubrey Plaza and this might just be a winner.
Through The Looking Glass
Switching gears a bit, Disney released not one, but two teaser trailers for the follow-up to it’s billion grossing fantasy epic Alice In Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass. Not much to go on from these clips, but the bright colour palette of the first film definitely seems to be in tact. Mia Wasikowska returns as the plucky heroine Alice, with Johnny Deep, Helena Bonham Carter, and Anne Hathaway also returning for the sequel. Newcomers Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s father, and Sacha Baron Cohen as Time, round out the cast. Tim Burton is only producing on this one, with directorial duties falling to Muppets Most Wanted director James Bobbin.
Our last trailer showcases probably the most inventive movie of the year, stop-motion drama (yes, drama) Anomalisa. Directed by Charlie Kaufman (the weird mind behind Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and Being John Malkovich) and Duke Johnson (the stop-motion Christmas episode of Community), this is a decidedly non kid-friendly animated movie. Not a talking animal or inanimate object in sight, as it tells a story one man crippled by the mundanity of his life. The Venice Film Festival awarded it a special jury prize, and it’ll look to figure into the awards talk by being released at the very end of the year. One to look out for.
