Avengers: Age of Ultron sweded trailers

Regardless of how movie marketing campaigns evolve to keep up with the changing times, trailers will always be one of the most crucial tools in the selling of a new film. A typical trailer for a major studio’s potential blockbuster and franchise hopeful tends to look the same as another of its type, from the editing beats to the choice of overdramatic music cues (not to mention that annoying and loud horn sound that can be traced back to Inception‘s brilliantly executed previews).

Naturally this opens the door for aspiring filmmakers and people with both a strong sense and access to pretty decent cameras and recording equipment to create their own improvised spoofs of those occasionally overbearing trailers. Putting their friends and relatives in front of the camera and using whatever materials available to them to recreate the multi-million dollar visual effects, the makers of these “sweded” trailers often end up with something far more entertaining than their inspirations.

I have taken it upon myself to scour YouTube for the funniest, most bizarre, and flat-out fun spoof trailers for the biggest blockbusters (and in one special case, a gigantic bomb), and as a special bonus I’ve included a few for some of 2016’s most anticipated movies. Enjoy, and have a happy new year!

‘Ant-Man’: Marvel Studios Debuts First Full Trailer

Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man in Marvel Studio's Ant-Man

Marvel Studios has released the first full theatrical trailer for their latest solo comic book adventure, Ant-Man. You can check it out here below.

The teaser trailer, released in January, leaned heavily on setting up the story basics. The latest delivers on the action and visual effects fronts and then some, with Paul Rudd looking mighty badass as the titular incredible shrinking superhero as he encounters insects of an unusual size and takes on Corey Stoll‘s villainous Darren Cross when the latter suits up as Yellowjacket. We also get a sense of the on-screen relationship between Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and the stakes involved in their recruiting thief Scott Lang (Rudd) for their battle against Cross.

Trailers from Hell!Trailers from Hell! Volume Two
DVD
Starring Joe Dante, John Landis, Guillermo Del Toro, and Roger Corman
Shout! Factory
Release Date: July 5, 2011

I love DVD collections of old movie trailers. Since 2005, Synapse Films has been releasing volumes of classic grindhouse and drive-in exploitation trailers on DVD under the 42nd Street Forever and early this year unleashed their first Blu-ray edition in the series. One of those discs can provide an entire evening’s entertainment for the true connoisseur of cinema. Independent home video distributors understand the slim but still lucrative market value of a movie trailer collection. If you ask a bunch of people what their favorite part of the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez B-movie double feature homage Grindhouse was, chances are most of them will say they loved the spoof trailers directed by Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, Edgar Wright, and Rodriguez. Movie geek meccas like the Alamo Drafthouse and the New Beverly Cinema often program vintage trailers to go along with that night’s film selection. People still make their old trailer compilations for fun. Roth even talked about making a feature film in the form of a reel of trailers.

Trailers from Hell is a highly-addictive website where film directors, writers, and producers provide introductions and commentaries for the trailers to some of their favorite films. From beloved classics to obscure cult flicks, from Oscar-winning epics to kinetic blasts of pure psychotronic insanity, there is no vintage preview that the TFH crew will not unearth and gab about to the delight of movie geeks everywhere. They’ve even started releasing DVD collections of the finest trailers and commentaries on their site that they could secure the rights to through the amazing Shout! Factory, a true friend to film fans with expansive DVD and Blu-ray libraries (and this is the part where yours truly sheepishly raises his hand). So with that in mind I bring you Trailers from Hell! Volume Two.

The lackluster box office grosses (not a flop, but not a good omen either) for the 2006 sequel Mission: Impossible III had the studio suits at Paramount questioning the future of the once-viable tentpole action franchise, but after more than five years the blockbuster movie series is back with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

The second trailer for the movie has been released and you can watch it here below.

Paramount Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated third film in the hit “found footage” horror franchise, Paranormal Activity.

The movie, simply called Paranormal Activity 3, continues the scares as home video footage shows unthinkably evil happenings. As far as an official synopsis goes, details have not yet been shared, but as you’ll see, the movie takes place (at least partially) during young Katie’s childhood in 1988, and shows the roots of where her very haunted future begin.

In Case You Missed Them: The 2010 Super Bowl Commercial Movie Spots

Super Bowl

Tonight was the big game, and to sum things up, booze and gumbo be flowin’ strong in the French Quarters of New Orleans tonight.

The obvious big draw of the Super Bowl is the game itself, but right behind that it the unveiling of some of the best commercials you’ll see. Recent years have been an incredible disappointment for the advertisement industries, and it has seemed like very few companies have anyone working for them with fresh and funny ideas. So would this year be the year when commercials rose back to their former glory, or would failure loom once again?

The short answer is no, no there was not any glory. The majority of this year’s commercials, like recent years, were utter garbage, and that’s just sad and honest truth. The only real bright spots of the year came from the always-popular Bud Lite ads, and Doritos made a strong showing themselves. There were a couple of decent ones scattered around in between these, but that’s about all there is to it. You can head over to SPIKE to check out all of the commercials!

Full ‘Kick-Ass’ Green Band Trailer Allows All Ages To See How Awesome It Looks

Kick-Ass Banner

A brand new trailer for Matthew Vaughn‘s Kick-Ass has been released, and it is of the Green Band variety. For those who don’t know: Green Band trailers are the safe-for-all-audiences trailers that you usually see in theaters. We have seen a teaser trailer that was fine for all to see and we’ve seen the graphic Red Band trailer that showcased the film’s R-rated content, and now comes the full-length trailer that kids of all ages (who won’t be able to see the movie when it comes out) can watch as many times as they wish!

While it’s the mercilessly graphic content of the adult-aimed trailer that really gets me giggly-giddy for how insanely fun this movie is going to be, this new trailer is probably the best to watch if you’re not familiar with the movie. It’s the best one yet when it comes to setting the film up and showing off its characters and just giving you an overall feel of what to expect — most likely so you can go in and get shocked by all of the stuff you didn’t expect.

Video Game Awards ’09: ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum 2’ Trailer

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Spike TV held their annual Video Game Awards last night, and while the awards portion of the show was pretty forgettable, there were bright spots. These bright spots came in the form of a collection of new and sometimes unexpected video game teaser trailers being debuted during the program.

One of the bigger surprises of the night came in the very beginning of the show when a mysterious giant box appeared on the stage and a creepy, high-pitched voiced screeched out through the venue as dangerous green gasses were leaked out the box. It wasn’t long before it clicked that the voice belonged to none other than The Joker as voiced by fan-favorite Mark Hamill. This was the introduction of a new cinematic trailer that featured both Harley Quinn and Joker. It was obvious that it was for Batman: Arkham Asylum, but it was not clear whether it was for new DLC content or an actual sequel. A sequel, so soon? Can’t be!

Well, as it turns out — it is indeed for Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, and you can now watch the trailer on the other side. As with most of these, it is just a brief teaser trailer, but considering the surprise, it’s still fun stuff. The end also points you in the direction of the game’s new website Arkham Has Moved, which also has the trailer and a place to register for updates.
