Best/Worst Movie Promos of the Week: ‘The Three Stooges’ Just Won’t Go Away

Happy Hunger Ga – oh, there are other films hitting theaters in the near future, aren’t there?

We’ve got a brand new trailer for Oren Peli’s latest, Chernobyl Diaries. No, it doesn’t suggest this one can top the horror of the Paranormal Activity franchise, but there’s something about that used and abused shaky cam technique that still packs the power to just suck you right in. On the other hand, The Cabin in the Woods looks to take some overused concepts, rustle them up and breathe new life into them. Want a taste of the action to come? Check out the new TV spot.

Get ready Kristen Stewart fans, because we’ve got a double dose of K-Stew to share with you this weekend. First up is the obligatory trailer teaser for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – because of course the two minute and 30 second trailer requires a 15-second tease. On a far lengthier note, we’ve got a five-minute extended preview of Snow White and the Huntsman. The large majority of the material is shots we’ve already seen, but seeing a good portion of the film’s plot strung together serves as a nice segue to the full feature.

To end this introduction on a bright note – literally – we’ve got the collection of character posters for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows. As someone who’s never watched the original show, I’ve had little to no interest in the adaptation. However, now that these news posters and the trailer arrived, it seems I’m as interested as ever while it seems many fans aren’t all that into it.

Best/Worst Movie Promos of the Week: ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ and ‘John Carter’ Stand Out

Let’s face it; it’s not easy to come up with original material for feature films – and the same goes for their promotional campaigns. But, on the bright side, you can always take the good old concepts moviegoers love, put even the slightest spin on them and then highlight those elements all the way through to still offer something that feels fresh – and the same goes for promo material too, of course. Kudos to our best promos of the week for taking that idea and running with it. But, before we get to the best stuff, let’s take a look at what just missed the mark and what came nowhere close.

If only there were more room in The Best Stuff …

After Taken, anything in which Liam Neeson saves the day gets a free pass to awesome. But, even beyond Neeson, The Grey looks like a pretty incredible ride. Similar to Frozen, the trailer gives off a particularly chilly vibe that doesn’t only thrill via the visuals, but actually makes you a tad cold.

Hmmm …

I don’t really know what to make of Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie and I’ve got a good feeling it has a lot to do with the fact that I’m not very familiar with the duo’s work. The trailer is certainly on the unconventional side, but there’s also something about it that makes me feel like I shouldn’t knock it without at least trying it. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, we’ve got a new clip from The Devil Inside. While the material is incredibly engaging, especially when it relies so heavily on one character’s monologue, the fact that the ending is rather predictable keeps it out of the top tier of this piece.
