Explosions, Aliens, and Angst: Three Different Trailers or a Michael Bay Coming of Age Comedy?
We begin with the trailer that elicited the biggest yawn from me this morning. Ginger & Rosa stars Elle Fanning as Ginger, a 17-year-old growing up in 1960s London. The threat of nuclear war and the onset of family troubles start to reshape her world and her relationship with her best friend, Rosa (Alice Englert). This movie might be your bag, baby, but it ain’t mine.
A Good Day To Die Hard trailer has the most explosions of the three here, unless you count the explosion of hormones and emotion in Ginger & Rosa. Bruce Willis is once again John McClane, Badass Motherf*cker, and he is in Russia to help his wayward son. But wait! His son is actually a CIA Operative Motherf*cker and kind of looks like Sam Worthington! Papa McClane and Offspring McClane join forces to stop a smug asshole criminal. Wheee!
The final trailer is for Dark Skies, starring Keri Russell, J.K. Simmons, and Josh “You’ll Always Be Incestuous To Me” Hamilton. I’m not saying that this movie is about aliens, but it’s about aliens.
