Trailer(ing) the movies

Trailers have always been an important part of a movie’s marketing campaign (for obvious reasons).
Even so, nowadays it’s pretty common to find unoriginal, or dare I say clichéd teasers that barely bring anything new to the table, let alone peak people’s interest.
Fortunately though, a few recent (somewhat) innovative trailers have been popping up. They also are incidentally attached to pretty cool feature films coming up this fall.

From Sept. 25 ’til Nov. 25, here are, in chronological order, all the movies you must absolutely check out, if only for their epic trailers.

Special mention to both A Serious Man and Where the Wild Things Are.

Coming out Sept. 25
Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (adapted and directed by John Krasinski)

Why should you go see this movie?
For one, it has an incredible cast.
For two, incredible is the cast.
But most importantly, it looks fun.

Pandorum (written by Travis Milloy, directed by Christian Alvart)

At first, it looks like Alien meets Resident Evil.
Turns out, it’s way more epic.

Coming out Oct. 2
A Serious Man (written and directed by Ethan & Joel Coen)

Ding, ding, ding!
Here comes the next Coen classic.

Zombieland (written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, directed by Ruben Fleischer)

Woody Harrelson going on a little zombie-hunting trip.
Who doesn’t want to see this?

Coming out Oct. 16
Where the Wild Things Are (adapted by Spike Jonze & Dave Eggers, directed by Spike Jonze)

It already has one of the best movie trailer ever made, what more can you ask?

Coming out Oct 30
Gentlemen Broncos (written by Jared & Jerusha Hess, directed by Jared Hess)

Emmy-nominated Jemaine Clement stars in this (probably soon-to-be cult) movie.
I smell comic genius.

Coming out Nov. 6
The Men Who Stare At Goats (adapted by Peter Straughan, directed by Grant Heslov)

Yet again, a movie with a great cast.
Plus, there’s George Clooney staring at a goat.

Coming out Nov. 25
The Road (adapted by Joe Penhall, directed by John Hillcoat)

One year later, it’s finally here , ready for the 2010 Academy Awards.
But before you go see it, do one thing first: read the book.

This fall, there’s finally a reason (actually, multiple reasons) to go back to the movie theatre.
