A Tale of Two Trailers

You may have noticed last week that the latest trailer for Marvel’s next installment in their Avengers franchise whirled onto the Wonderful Wishy Washy with enough fanfare to fill a very large something-or-other. Much pant wetting and frame-by-frame micro-analysis ensued in varying attempts to eek out additional information about the upcoming superhero-fest. I’m not one for this kind of thing, but I do like a good trailer and can be prone to watch it more than once just for the sheer enjoyment of it. It’s a good trailer and I’ll certainly be towards the front of the queue when Avengers: Age of Ultron is released. Here it is in all its glory.

The reason for this particular post is that another trailer/ teaser was released on the same day and was pretty much lost in the melee surrounding the Marvel stuff. Here it is.

Suffice to say, there wasn’t really any clamouring for additional info when this one was released – but there should be! I was well aware of Sir Ian McKellen‘s latest cinematic outing – I’d been looking forward to seeing his interpretation of arguably the world’s favourite sleuth and was just as excited to see it as I was the Age of Ultron trailer. These two pieces of promotional work could not be further apart when considering content or tone but I think it’s fair to say that both are entirely enigmatic in nature when considering the actual story each film will be telling. April 24th 2015 (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and June 19th 2015 (Mr. Holmes) can’t come soon enough here in the UK as far as these two are concerned.

Thank you for reading 🙂
