Trailer Watch is a first reaction viewing of the featured trailer (by me) where I give some light commentary and opinions on it. Trailers are a big deal, they are the first real impression a movie has on people and can have a huge impact on its success or failure which is why it is important for a studio to cut together the best possible trailer they can. While I do have some expectations or even some insight into many of the film trailers presented here, please take it all with a grain of salt and make your own opinion from what is shown (that is why I insist you see the trailer first each time). Most of all though, kick back and see if you agree with my off the cuff reactions. Watch the trailer and listen to my reaction after the break.
Fewer things are more enjoyable than watching a film with Samuel L. Jackson in it. He may not have that rare ability to elevate the material he is working with like the Liam Neesons and George Clooneys of the world, but he sure as heck makes them more entertaining. Casting Sam "Bad Motherf****r" Jackson as the President of the United States isn't the worst idea ever conceived of, but then you add in a twist where he is being hunted in the expansive Finnish wilderness who must rely on a local child hunter to survive and suddenly this has the potential to be a really fun (and completely unbelievable) little action adventure.
