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.
Magic Mike wasn't the movie we wanted. It was a well acted, directed and written movie, but it's heart was in the wrong place. Nobody wanted to go see a movie about a bunch of male strippers who had drug problems, everyone just wanted a good time but that wasn't the movie they made (although it was certainly the movie they marketed). It's sequel, something nobody really asked for, seems intent on righting that wrong and giving the audience what they want. Whether it provides it remains to be seen, but this first trailer shows promise for anyone still interested. Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
