Hey there! It’s been a while. But much like Pennywise the Clown, I may seem gone but am never forgotten (shivers). Let’s recap all the good, bad, and ugly trailers released this week for your enjoyment.

The Good

The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist is a film about the making of The Room. Have you ever actually seen The Room? Hint: Brie Larson is NOT in it.

While The Room is a categorically terrible movie, The Disaster Artist sheds some light on it I was previously unaware of. Plus a bunch of best friends are hanging out together in James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Judd Apatow. Franco’s brother Dave is also in the film, which adds a unique element. And A24 is smoking hot right now as a movie studio. This could be worth a try.


Unique and interesting concepts for films is exactly what Hollywood is missing right now. Downsizing gives a different idea a chance. A great cast doesn’t work. Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, and Kristen Wiig all play prominently, with many cameos sprinkled in. It looks like Downsizing will feature some dry humor and mix it in with is what will surely be a social statement by the end. A unique idea worth checking out.

The Shape Of Water (Redband)

Some classic Guillermo del Toro action here. The Shape Of Water is sure to be fun, quirky, and suspenseful. The cast is also very solid, led by Michael Shannon. A bunch of film festivals have already selected this one, and you probably should too come December.

Red Sparrow

As if America’s relations with Russia weren’t already complicated enough. Now we’ve got Jen Lawrence recruited by Russian intelligence looking to take down an American CIA agent. She’s been trained to “use her body as a weapon,” so the poor guy doesn’t have a chance.

In all seriousness, Lawrence has proven she can carry a movie as the center focus. And she’s badass. Red Sparrow has a great combination to peak interest.


Yessssssssss. Pixar is back baby! I’m certainly not going to be the one to tell you the people who created Toy Story and Finding Dory are going to start creating bad movies now. Coco is pretty clearly the Trailer of the Week, and it’s mostly because of that amazing dog. Enjoy!

The Bad

The Commuter

Man. No one is pigeon-holed like Liam Neeson is pigeon-holed. The Commuter might as well be a sequel to Taken/Taken 2/Taken 3/Taken on a plane (I forget what it’s called. Doesn’t matter). You know exactly what you’ll get when Neeson has lives to save and explosions are involved. I personally just think we’ve reached a tipping point here.

The Ugly

Nothing in the Ugly department this week! However, the teaser trailer came out for 50 Shades Freed, so that counts. Can’t wait until the full trailer is released!
