The Week in Trailers 20.12.13


Welcome to the final edition of The Week in Trailers before Christmas, which, by the way, you should consider a gift of sorts, because it’s jam-packed full of newness, and thrillers, and sci-fi, and Game of Thrones teasers (however small, in the HBO Yearender), and more thrillers, Simon Pegg in another weird role, and, honestly, the best stuff I’ve seen this year. It’s as if the better directors, writers, cinematographers, producers and the like intentionally waited until we were but a week out from Santa’s big day to get us film-drunk on the good stuff. So what do we say? Thanks Santa. Anyway, because there are so goddamn many trailers, I’ve opted to alter your reading:viewing ratio by using two-word descriptions for each trailer in lieu of the usual commentary. Any questions? No? Excellent.

- Merry Christmas, ’til next year!

I'm listening to Roxy Music's 'Avalon' right now, and worrying how that might influence a self-written portrayal of myself. As a result, I'm keeping things simple: writer, reader, watcher, skeptic. I like questions more than answers. Too mysterious? I promise I don't listen to Roxy Music often.
