Joker, Game of Thrones, Avengers: Endgame... it’s Trailer Tuesday
The new «Joker» movie shows Gotham City in the 1980s and a maniac who has become the city's most feared criminal. Bill Murray and Adam Driver go on a zombie hunt in «The Dead Don’t Die» and Hellboy is as merciless and violent as never before in the same-titled movie. On top of this, two eras are ending in April: «Avengers: Endgame» and «Game of Thrones».
Guillermo del Toro, director of the first two Hellboy movies, which were hugely popular with fans but mildly successful from a commercial point of view, is no longer involved. Instead, Neil Marshall has taken on the job to reinterpret the story with David Harbour as the red devil in the leading role. The trailer, not only R-Rated but Super R-Rated – whatever Super-R-Rated means – reveals a Hellboy movie with more blood and violence than anything that’s ever been seen. Hellboy? Hell yeah.
Release date in Swiss cinemas: 11 April 2019
Game of Thrones: season 8
This is probably the last trailer of the final season of «Game of Thrones». Two relics each of the Starks, Lannisters and Targaryens lie orphaned in the snow: a hint at what happens if the White Walkers win and The Long Night breaks over Westeros again. Goosebumps guaranteed.
Start date: 14 April 2019
«Avengers: Endgame» is the grand finale of everything Marvel has created to date. It’s probably also the last appearance of some beloved characters, which makes the movie all the more explosive. Marvel’s trailers have never given away much. That’s good. This trailer is the most revealing in terms of storyline, although it only lasts a minute.
Release date in Swiss cinemas: 24 April 2019
The Dead Don’t Die
Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover and Tom Waits. They all play a role in this zombie apocalypse, which reminds me of «Zombieland». The story? The undead are attracted not only by the flesh of the living but also by things they used to like when they were still alive. Like tennis. Or Chardonnays.
Expected release date in Swiss cinemas: June 2019
Arthur Fleck's (Joaquin Phoenix) mother always told him to be happy and put on a friendly face. One day, the failed stand-up comedian is brutally beaten up on the streets of Gotham City. This event is the beginning of his transformation. What makes this storyline so gripping is that, like Christopher Nolan's Batman version, it plays in a tangible reality.
Release date in Swiss cinemas: 17 October 2019
