Join us every week for a trip into the weird and wonderful world of trailers. Whether it’s the first teaser for the latest instalment in your favourite franchise, an obscure preview for a strange indie darling, whether it’s good, bad, ugly or just plain weird – your favourite pop culture baristas are there to tell you what they think.
While 2020 and 2021 weren’t exactly great years for cinemas, they were pretty good for cinema. Plenty of good, interesting films came out – if not always in the preferred format – during the ongoing pandemic, and one of those found a grateful audience in Mege: Miranda July’s Kajillionaire.
Friday saw the release of Julie’s glorious post on the many, many versions of A Star is Born, with a special focus on the 1954 version starring Judy Garland and James Mason.
Saturday saw the release of our latest podcast episode, in which Julie, Matt and Sam talked about their feelings for movie soundtracks – so, while it doesn’t get mentioned in the podcast itself, here’s a trailer for the 2016 documentary Score – which may have received middling reviews, but hey, anything to celebrate a good movie soundtrack!
And for once we’ll leave it at that, without any new trailers – because there will be more next Sunday! So, for tonight, here’s wishing everyone a good night and a great next week. See you soon!
