Best/Worst Movie Promos of the Week: ‘Hotel Transylvania’ Rocks a Great Concept But Poor Executions

Poor The Expendables 2G.I. Joe Retaliation beat you to it. Both summer blockbusters delivered a slew of character posters this past week and not only were they released in a similar format, the collection of posters being distributed amongst a selection of online outlets, but both sets look quite similar. It’s tough to call one set better than the other, but G.I. Joe certainly stole some of The Expendables thunder.

We’ve got three new red-band trailers fighting for potty mouth glory. There’s the one for John Stalberg’s High School, which continues to look like an entertaining high school throwback, and then there’s the one for The Five-Year Engagement, which might incite a spike in the sale of the peony flower. Last up is the one from Hick and it proves that you don’t want to mess with Chloe Moretz. Forget all of Hit Girl’s crazy toys; all she needs here is a little firepower.

In somewhat tamer trailer territory, there’s a new one for the home invasion film Stash House. It looks tacky to the max, but the idea of Sean Faris and Briana Evigan battling with Dolph Lundgren just screams guilty pleasure. On the other hand, Lawless might be the real deal. The film was just selected to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and now it’s got a trailer with enough tension and drama to show it might be worthy of the honor.
