On this week’s Trailer Watch, Liam Neeson is back to kicking ass in “Honest Thief”, Netflix drops a surprise trailer for another “Kissing Booth” movie, twins try to balance high school & their career as “Teenage Bounty Hunters”, and much more!
Honest Thief (Oct. 9th, TBD)
Is there a worst place to be as an action movie villain than on the receiving end of a “I’m coming for you” phone call from Liam Neeson? If there is, I don’t want to know.
Teenage Bounty Hunters (Aug. 14th, Netflix)
I am certain that I’m not part of the target demographic for this movie and that by watching it I may forever alter the algorithm of what gets recommended to me but, this looks like an irreverent and entertaining way to spend a few hours. The story seems interesting and the trailer does a very good job of selling it.
Pinocchio (TBD, VOD)
Roberto Benigni as Geppetto is some very inspired casting and this movie is already a smash hit in its’ home country, Italy. But none of that matters to me. I don’t need to know the accolades or box office/VOD totals. All I needed to see to know that this was a movie for me was the fact that it answers something I’ve thought about for years since seeing the Disney “Pinocchio” as a kid:
The birds use his nose as a perch. Sign me up.
Chemical Hearts (Aug. 21st, Amazon Prime)
Has this type of movie been made 1000 times before? Yeah.
Is that gonna stop millions of people (including probably me and my girlfriend) from watching it and ugly crying the weekend it comes out? Hell no.
The Kissing Booth 3 (2021, Netflix)
Netflix dropped a surprise trailer for a third movie in the “Kissing Booth” series. ON THE SAME DAY THE KISSING BOOTH 2 STARTED STREAMING. What a flex. They were like “yeah we don’t give a shit what the reviews say, kids and teens are going to watch this and love it. Let’s go. Here’s #3, get stoked.”
Spree (Aug. 14th, VOD)
I was so ready to be like “Steve Harrington is an Uber driver now” and then I watched the actual trailer. This looks wild. Combining found-footage/gonzo filming styles, Joe Keery plays an unhinged rideshare driver obsessed with become a social media sensation. It looks more dark comedy than straight horror but still, creativity and pure Keery-charisma make this one I’ll for sure be looking forward to see.
