Hey there guys!
Long time no blog! It’s safe to say that I’ve had a bit of a hiatus from this blog post this summer, not going to lie I needed to get some things sorted including myself, but that’s over now and I’m back! I’ve decided to have this first new post presented in 2 parts. I’m going to be counting down my top 10 movie trailers. This post will be from numbers 10 through to 6!
Now I love film trailers, absolutely love them. A good trailer has to grip you from the start. It needs to hook you from the first 30 seconds and make you want more. It needs to grip you emotionally, leave you in suspense. There are many trailers that do this and I want to count down my top 10 in these two posts. Getting these down to 10 was a challenge believe me!
Before we start I want to say thanks for all your patience, I know people read this and I haven’t blogged in quite a while, to be honest, I just needed a break from many things. But I’m back and ready for this countdown!
So let’s get started!
10 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 & 2 – Initial trailer
Now for those who know me know Harry Potter is a massive part of my life. It has been since I was a little boy. So approaching these final two films was huge for all fans of this popular franchise. The first trailer that was released was a trailer for both Part 1 and Part 2 of the final chapter. For me, it is a great way to kick off this top 10.
This trailer sets all viewers up for what was going to be the movie events of the century. It gave us hints from many fan favourite moments from the books and left me in awe at the end of it. It starts with a look towards the end of the second movie which I think is genius, because it made you want more straight away.
This is a great trailer and I love it a lot, see what you think above!
9 – Avengers – Official Trailer 2
The Avengers was a movie that was building up for a very long time, it was something that fans of Marvel movies including myself were super excited for! So when the trailers starting coming out there were lots of expectations and it’s safe to say that their trailers kept delivering on that but the best was the second trailer by far!
It helps establish the characters that we know and love and sets up the plot and action very well and shows up the scope that Joss Wheadon was going for. I remember being in awe after seeing this trailer for the first time. Especially after that last shot, I mean c’mon!
Give it a look above!
8 – Batman Vs Superman – Comic Con Trailer
Right, say what you want about the finished film. Believe me, I feel the same as you (It’s not fantastic), however, I feel this comic con trailer it’s very very strong. What this trailer does well is it helps to show us Superman and his struggles with this burden of being the man of steel whilst also showing how the humans are starting to doubt him. Yet it also shows us Batman and his reasons for possibly hating Superman.
I feel like this trailer really helps to set up the characters really well and actually made me really excited for the movie and to see old and new characters. The last 30 seconds also made me very excited for the main event of the film. It’s a shame that the movie itself didn’t prove to be as strong as its trailer though.
Watch it above.
7 – Thor Ragnarok Trailer
Now, this trailer may have only just been released, but let’s be honest. It’s incredible.
From the music to the colours to the dialogue between characters, everything about this trailer I really enjoyed. Having had two previous Thor films that have been mixed, to say the least, this one seems to really raise the stakes and shows us a new fresh take on the character we have all grown to love over numerous films.
I also like seeing Thor and Hulk/Banner together. Judging by this trailer they work really well and having them in this setting is going to be a very strong selling point for the movie. That and Tom Hiddleston returning as Loki. Actually being honest the whole cast of this film is insanely good!
What do you think?! What it above.
6 – X Men – Days of Future Past –Trailer 1
X Men – Days of future past was a film I myself was highly anticipated. Adapted from a fantastic comic storyline that many people enjoyed, many fans, including myself, was super happy to hear they were making this into a movie that would unite the newer cast of X-Men with the older cast.
Set to ‘Time’ (By Hans Zimmer from Inception) this trailer truly left me wanting more. It establishes everything we need to know yet left us wanting much more. We knew Wolverine was going back in time to save the future but we wanted to know more. We knew by the last shot both Professors were going to meet but we didn’t know how. Honestly, I really love everything about this trailer (and movie). Having it as number 6 in my 10 was a tough choice and it just missed out on the top 5.
Check it out above!
Well there you have it, there’s the first part of my top 10. What did you think of my choices??
What are your top 10?! I’d like to hear what are some of your favourite trailers??
Stay tuned for my second part of this post, from 5, all the way through to my all time favourite trailer (At the moment). This post will be in the next couple of days!
Plenty more posts are coming too! It feels good to be back!
