Trailer Of The Week - Week #17

Ah, this is more like it. After the smoothness of last week's slick-Rick, flashy-pants, marketing-class-demo of a Sin City trailer, lets go back to basics with the original one for Predator which, besides being camp and ridiculous in only the way 80s trailers can, gives away several key character's deaths and ruins numerous Arnie one-liners. Film4 played Predator I and II back to back in the UK on Saturday and put together an infinitely better trail, despite by default having to include Gary Busey. Still, at least this captures Predator's ridiculous appeal. What's that? There's something in the trees? Ruddy well is mate.

Trailer Of The Week is a new Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.

  1. Man I miss horribly cheesy voice overs! How do we get those to make a comeback? Perhaps I should start a petition...

    I do hate when movies blow character deaths though, it's not hard to work around it with some misdirection.

  2. Uni - Everytime someone does a reboot or a remake of an 80s film, it should be compulsory that the trailer comes with the cheesy voice over. Best idea ever for getting Hollywood to stop these reboots.

    Simon - I assume you mean you're not missing 80s voice overs? Embrace the cheese my friend.
