The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

annabelleWelcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week.


Annabelle

That very first teaser for Annabelle was a good one, but this full trailer goes above and beyond. It doesn’t offer up just one good scare and call it quits. There are a bunch of very effective creepy moments and they’re all incredibly different. We’ve got director John R. Leonetti establishing an exceptionally eerie environment by utilizing all layers of his frame in one moment, and another where he toys with the audience by hinting at the bloodshed to come. Then there’s that scene at the very end of the piece where an appearance shift catches you totally off guard. This is some smart, innovative and very well-composed stuff. October 3 really can’t come soon enough.

The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

Laggies

The new trailer for Lynn Shelton’s Laggies does stumble into cheesy territory quite a bit, but the characters are so charming and the piece rocks such an upbeat, energetic pace that it’s impossible not to get caught up in the material. It’s also particularly well structured. In fact, the trailer has three acts. There’s the character-building portion that focuses on who Keira Knightley is and what’s going on in her world; there’s her effort to get away from it all, and then she comes to terms with it. Yes, there is a chance a format like that could spoil some twists and turns in the actual movie, but as far as this trailer goes, getting the opportunity to go on this little journey with Knightley makes the idea of spending more time with her character incredibly appealing.
