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

Nightcrawler

That quick teaser for Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler caught our eye and now the film’s first official trailer locked it in. We need to know more about Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal). The two pieces work exceptionally well together. The first introduces you to the idea that Lou’s a guy in desperate need of a job and the second builds upon that by showing you how he winds up making that happen. Getting the opportunity to watch a guy navigate the world of L.A. crime journalism is inherently fascinating, but rather than lean on that appeal, these pieces put the focus on what could make Nightcrawler a true standout – a downright fascinating main character. Lou’s passionate and determined, but incredibly unhinged and volatile. Put someone like that in this line of work and you’re bound to have explosive results.
