In Jennifer Garner's latest movie, Peppermint, we finally have a good use of the trailer to the trailer. The audio bite used from Jennifer Garner is not repeated in the body of the main trailer. It's additive without being repetitive. The other trailers this week are refreshing in their takes on genres that could use new takes.
The Sisters Brothers gives a comedic twist to a gritty western while preserving the verisimilitude of a Westworld real western.
We end with the The Happytime Murders that places your beloved Muppets in an awkward position, but they have a Melissa McCarthy to guide them, which is right in her wheelhouse and looks to deliver another solid comedic performance.
