It’s very easy to miss an AAA trailer these days, even with all the endless marketing concentration around teasers, pre-trailers, and other forms of movie advertising campaigns. A good trailer is an art form that is able to convey the plot, tone and style of a movie, while resisting this ever-present urge to score it on a slow-moving pop song. So here is the Trailer Park, where we park all the trailers that you may have missed, lost or want to visit again last week. Appreciate them. Choose them. Find out if the movies they sell will be really good. After all, all of this is part of the fun.
This week, we have a nice juicy look at Robert Pattinson taking on his hood Batman, the festival-favorite The lost daughter as well as a trailer for the very real and definitely random video game customization Uncharted.
Director: Matt Reeves
Release date: March 4, 2022
If you thought that the news about Robert Pattinson coming up as a new Batman was just one of his brazen pranks or that it was just too good to be true, now is the time to get over it and start believing it. The official trailer for Batman was released over the weekend and shows RPatz in all its superhero glory. And, yes, these are some great wings to fill: Christian Bale was as iconic as the vigilant in Christopher Nolan The dark Knight, as well as Ben Affleck in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman. And should we even mention Michael Keaton? But I know Pattinson can do it. He has proven over the years that he has a dark, nervous side – and I’m not just talking about Twilight. He made the action sequences perfectly Doctrine, and played convincingly a criminal running inside Good time. Batman directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), who also co-wrote it with Peter Craig (The city). In addition to Pattinson starring Bruce Wayne, Zoë Kravitz plays Selina Kyle / Catwoman and Paul Dano plays Edward Nashton AKA The Riddler. The cast also includes Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell. Based on the trailer, this will not be your average Batman movie. Playing over a moody rendition of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way,” this hidden culmination of the two-and-a-half-minute film is intense and melancholy. It also has the line “What is black and blue and dead everywhere?” in that, which is reason enough to watch it. And if for some reason you do not like Battinson’s idea, take comfort in the fact that it is a standalone film, so Ben Affleck will return as your favorite superhero in no time.—Aurora starch

It’s time for another adventure that spins the world, because the first real trailer for Uncharted has finally swum in the eye. The long-awaited adaptation of the platform / adventure game series stars Tom Holland as Nathan Drake, along with the greatest assistant Victor “Sully” Sullivan, played by Mark Wahlberg. Rest assured that the Internet’s collective reaction to this trailer was already screaming about the lack of Sully’s iconic mustache, which some sadly speculate will be saved for some sort of silly post-credits revelation. Regardless, Uncharted promises adventure, archeology and puzzled Indiana Jones as Drake and Sally begin to hunt down “one of history’s greatest mysteries and treasures,” whatever that may be. Standing in their way is none other than the great Antonio Banderas, so at least we can not say that the film lacks a worthy actor to play its rival. Likewise, the following trailer is full of humor and heavy for CGI-based action, with lots of shots and some local rhythm remakes from games throughout the series… despite the fact that the film serves as the game’s original story and prequel. instead of actually adapting one of them directly. There are some weird choices here, in fact, like the apparent end of the trailer on a cliffhanger and then revealing the result of the same cliffhanger about 30 seconds later. Why spoil the gag of such a reward? Hard to say, but obviously this is what Sony thinks is putting a butt on the seats.—Jim Worrell

Led by the first feature film director Lee Haven Jones (Doctor Who) and was written by Roger Williams, The celebration is located on a large estate in the Welsh countryside.
