Trailer Trash: Top Teasers

I just want to share my two favorite teaser trailers that have hit so far. They are both beautifully cut, thrilling, and they make me want to see the movie!

True Grit’s teaser trailer has recently been usurped by a lengthier, showier, regular (Worse) trailer. The teaser leaves out Bridges, Damon, and Brolin to instead feature Deakins sweeping images, a haunting (original?) song, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld. And the barrel click at the end? Cheesy and genius! Great cut Coens!

The other trailer is for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours. And if the trailer doesn’t impress upon you enough that it is Danny Boyle’s film, then you are as a blind as Helen Keller. It is interesting that they aren’t really trying to sell James Franco or even like Amber Tamblyn – not that she is anyone anymore, but it’s nice to see her. Mantle’s cinematography rivals Deakins and it should be a truly harrowing film. And the song has been playing in my mind for weeks.
