Jason made fun of us on the show for talking about the Rogue One trailer so why not just consolidate all of our talk and dedicate an entire thread topic to talkin' trailers.

Beauty and the Beast just came out today and holy bananas, Batman, I AM SO EXCITED! I don't give a fuck if it's a CGI mess, if it's a literal shot for shot remake, or if the acting is terrible. I will be there for Thursday night previews on the verge of tears because this story means that much to me.



Oh also today I actually saw a guy write the words "...they really should have casted someone easier on the eyes" in regards to Emma Watson as Belle. And yes it was a serious statement.

Easier on the eyes than Emma Watson? That man, I declare, is a lunatic. Away with him.

This looks fun - my entire relationship with the cartoon version is watching it with my kids (it came out when I was 12 when I was 'too cool' for that stuff so didn't see it until adulthood) so when i saw this trailer I was bracing myself for another teeth-pulling session that these films usually represent to parents with kids (witness: 'Trolls'), but this looks pretty good. Then when we add the music (nearly none of which is in this trailer) that's a pretty good time, I'd say. The biggest questions for me when it comes to Disney filming their cartoon canon: will we get a CGI 'Fox and the Hound'? Or 'Robin Hood'?

Well, if you completely ignore that she's objectively beautiful (both inside and out from what I can tell) then I can kind of see his point...

Eh, probably has a vicious mean streak, which includes not tipping at least 15% on meals.

I now have to directly quote the entire paragraph where he mentions this because it's too hilarious

Quote

Emma Watson is really plain looking in comparison, in my opinion. They really needed to pick an actress a little easier on the eyes and that really hit home the "beauty" part.... I mean her acting chops are decent and she's well recognized thanks to Harry Potter... which are usually the more important qualities... but they needed an actress that really remind people of Belle as first glance.


Just...

Erhm....."really plain looking in comparison"? In comparison to what, a rainbow-belching unicorn with a heart of gold and smile to match?!?! Yeah, I guess she'd be "really plain looking in comparison" to something like that. Who's the wonk who uttered that quote? It wasn't Donald...was it?

Ha sorry I forgot about the context. It's in comparison to cartoon Belle lololol.

He's right, though. I am so sick of real people not being as hot as cartoon characters.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2



First, I'm not sure how I feel about them re-using Hooked on a Feeling to soundtrack the sequel trailer. That was a bit disappointing.

But second, I really love this trailer. Maybe just because it's the 1st trailer or maybe because they actually know better, but they don't actually give away anything about the plot or villain and almost every clip in the trailer is a really tight close-up shot. So it doesn't reveal any of the major set pieces or plot twists. All it gives are tiny morsels of eye-candy and character design. It's perfect. I avoid most trailers because they're all so damn spoilery these days and this was refreshing.


Re: Beauty & the Beast*, Obvy it should have been Gal Gadot. Gadot 4 all the lady parts. Errr, you know what im saying.

Someone did throw out Emmy Rossum and I was like ooooh yes, but then remembered how shitty Hollywood can be and they probably thought she was too old.

Re: GotG - I had the same thoughts as you about Hooked on a Feeling but I have this feeling (joke kind of intended) that James Gunn is trying to keep more of the second soundtrack a secret? Idk but it did give me that same sense that Star Trek Beyond did by reusing Sabotage like, "Hey guys remember how much you loved the first move!? Right!? Right??!!!??"

Except I have more faith in GotG 2.

Is the new Beauty and the Beast going to have all the songs from the original? It's too bad some of the original voice actors have passed on, like Angela Lansbury and Jerry Orbach. It looks great though, although Gaston doesn't look quite as beefy as his cartoon version.

Angela Lansbury's still kicking! She was touring 'Blithe Spirit' as recently as last year. She'll outlive us all. ;)

Yeah but if they cast Emmy Rossum we'd be forced to make comparisons between this and Joel Schumacher's god-awful 'Phantom of the Opera' that she played Christine in (opposite 'Gamer''s own Kable). Same basic character trope: frail yet feisty artistic type tames a monster. Emma's a nice casting choice, I think.

Great News! Angela Lansbury is still alive!

To be honest, though, I prefer the original animated versions to the live action stuff. If it's going to be shot for shot, what's the point? At least bring something new to the table.

lets create a podcast all about trailers will show Jason whos boss. Mind you I think the The Golden Briefcase podcast did that once and ended up cutting it out because of the fact it's audio based and nothing is more boring then listening to podcasts about film trailers.
