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.
Murder in 16th century Bavaria, mysteries in a medieval abbey, illustrated manuscript and forbidden books: for someone who considers the film adaptation of The Name of the Rose one of his formative cinema experiences, the recently released Pentiment is catnip, as Matt will gladly confirm in spite of the few hundred years in between the two settings. But since we recently featured the trailer for this game (which was released late last year), let’s instead indulge in some quality post-Bond Sean Connery.
Meanwhile, Sam used this week’s Six Damn Fine Degrees to celebrate some classic and modern heist films and their use of music. But while it would be easy to just feature some trailers for the films he’s mentioned, his post is already full of YouTube videos linked to the movies – so let’s go with the numeric theme Sam chose.
We also released the March podcast this week, so here are three choice trailers to go with the films Sam, Alan and Julie talked about, among others:
And, for once, we’ll leave it at that. More trailers to follow next week: same damn fine time, same damn fine channel!
