It’s that time time of the year again when all do their TOP 10 favourite/worst films of the year. There’s has been some pretty great films this year, along with other dissapointments for sure (I’m looking straight towards you Man of Steel). But the main reason we tend to check out those films, films that are on our top 10 list is because the marketing campaign was so damn good.
So here are my picks for the best trailers of this year.
OK. This one is a controversial for sure. Can this film be described as somehow “good”? Can a real pornstar act in a mainstream film? Can Lyndsay Lohan quit drugs, I mean get back acting? Fucking no. But what can be said good or great about this pretentious piece of shit is the trailer.
How do you make a trailer which can engaged the audience which such a shitty film like this? Check out for yourself.
9 - LA VIE D’ADÈLE (Abdellatif Kechiche) [US trailer]
In contrast with THE CANYONS, here we got a good trailer for a fantastic film. The following trailer captures different themes that are throughout this 3 hours romance film. Love, sex, betrayal, fear.
8 - THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY (Ben Stiller) [Trailer 1]
I haven’t seen this film yet so I can’t say if it is great, horrible or excellent but what I can say is that from just seeing this trailer I really wanna see it.
7 - AMERICAN HUSTLE (David O. Russell) [Trailer 1]
Yet another film I’m dying to see, not only because of the director and the amazing cast but also because of the brilliant editing in the first trailer and the outstanding choice of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Good times, bad times’.
6 - BIG BAD WOLVES (Aharon Keshales & Navot Papusahdo)
Here it is a film that probably no one has ever heard of, or maybe they have since Mr. Tarantino ranked it as “the best film of 2013” and that’s saying something. Leaving aside that, this is a very strange, poetic and dark trailer which leaves us nothing but wanting more.
5 - HER (Spike Jonze) [Trailer 2]
This sweet, heartfelt sci-fi romance drama about a guy who starts a relationship with an operative system [Do not insert Siri gag in here] is an incredible plot for a film. What is even more incredible is the number of questions un-answered that the trailer show us, plus an amazing score by Arcade Fire.
4 - GRAVITY (Alfonso Cuarón) [Trailer 1]
Gravity may not have had the greatest script ever but it did have an excellent direction and a solid performance by Sandra Bullock. The following trailer does not show us the entire film in 2 and a half minutes but instead it teases the fuck out of the audience with a lot of tension.
3 - DON JON (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)
This amazingly well edited trailer by the famous Mark Wollen’s company show us a very detail look up to the themes of Don Jon’s life. Body, pad, ride, family, church, boys, girls and… what was the last one? Check it out for yourself.
2 - THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (Martin Scorsese) [Trailer 2]
Martin Scorsese directing. Leonardo DiCaprio in the leading role. The screenplay written by the guy who does Boardwalk Empire.
And the winner is…
1 - ONLY GOD FORGIVES (Nicolas Winding Refn) [Trailer 1]
That’s it. No other trailer this year could capture more perfectly the look, sound and depth of a film like the Only God Forgives one. It has few lines that doesn’t say anything about the plot but an extroardinary hypnotic feeling towards the whole picture. See the masterful edit down below.
9 - Guardians of the Galaxy (James Gunn)
8 - Foxcatcher (Bennett Miller)
7 - Gone Girl (David Fincher)
6 - Noah (Darren Aronofsky)
5 - Relatos Salvajes (Damián Szifron)
4 - The Raid 2: Berandal (Gareth Evans)
3 - The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson)
2 - Inherent Vice (Paul Thomas Anderson)
1 - Interestellar (Christopher Nolan)
