There were a number of very good movie trailers in 2016. Whatever you might think of the film (and I liked it), the Suicide Squad trailer sold the hell out of it. Likewise, the best promotion for the Deadpool juggernaut was its spectacular movie trailer.
Meanwhile, the Batman vs. Superman and Zoolander 2 trailers sold movies that didn’t actually exist, although the Rogue One trailer did so even more literally by including a lot of scenes in its trailer that never appeared in the film.
Personally, I was also a huge fan of the Manchester by the Sea trailer; in fact, I think it set my expectations too high. The trailer for Swiss Army Man was definitely the weirdest of the year, selling the film as the farting jet-ski corpse movie, which turned out to be fairly accurate. It also turned out to be one of the best movies of the year.
But nope. All of those trailers pale in comparison to this one.
Here’s the trailer for The Mummy, but with a wrinkle. One of the audio tracks has been accidentally isolated on it, transforming a decent trailer for the Tom Cruise film into the funniest goddamn trailer of 2016.
I don’t care how skeptical you are. Click play. Trust. If you’re not laughing by the :45 second mark, I’ll give you your money back.
