This last week was one of the most exciting weeks this year so far, as we unveiled a total of ten brand new movie trailers. They ranged from sci-fi to action to horror to comedy to even a few indies, showing us just a brief glimpse of what this summer movie season will be like. Did the Nine Inch Nails song in the Terminator Salvation trailer win you over, or was it Johnny Depp's suave in Public Enemies, or was it J.J. Abrams' music in Star Trek that got you, or did the comedy in Pixar's Up have you laughing? We want to know which of these trailers this week were your favorites? What are you now most excited for this summer?
We kicked off the week with an exciting new trailer for Terminator Salvation, then followed it up with a new trailer for one of my Sundance favorites, 500 Days of Summer. Next came Pandorum, then Michael Mann's Public Enemies. Following those we debuted new trailers for both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, as well as a first look at Jim Jarmusch's The Limits of Control. And finally on Friday, we debuted a teaser for The Hangover, the latest epic trailer for Star Trek, and lastly, the first full trailer for Pixar's Up arrived in the early afternoon as well.
For me, the best trailer this entire week was the one for Star Trek, hands down. Everything about it is perfect, and I've been playing it on a constant loop since it first hit. Of course I loved all of these trailers, but my allegiance lies specifically with Star Trek more than any of the others right now. What about you?
