Trailer Talk: Alice Through The Looking Glass and The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)

Hello, Bloggers, welcome to another episode of Trailer Talk. For this episode, I will delve into trailers for two upcoming fairy tale sequels/prequels. Those films are Alice Through The Looking Glass and The Huntsman: Winter's War. 

I'll start off with Alice Through The Looking Glass. I have pretty mixed feelings on this. I don't quite love the first Alice in Wonderland the way I did when I first saw it. I'm also weary on Johnny Depp who I fear is just collecting another paycheck this time around. Also, despite the first film doing very well, I'm not really sure whether it really needed a sequel. The film obviously looks great. It looks much more colorful than the last one did. But I don't really go see movies because they look amazing.  Although, I do certain films because they are meant to be seen in the theaters. But I don't know about this one. I'm ambivalent as of now.

Now onto The Huntsman: Winter's War. While there didn't seem to be much demand for a Snow White and the Huntsman prequel or sequel or whatever this is, I am psyched for this one. For one or two reasons, in particular: Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron as the villainous queen sisters. You also have another one of the best actresses in the business, Jessica Chastain. Chris Hemsworth is also very good and I'm really pulling for him to build a career outside of Thor. Not saying I don't love him as Thor. I do love him as Thor. It's just that whenever an actor is cast as a superhero, sometimes they have trouble building a career outside of that. and if this one does really well, then he might be able to do so and have another franchise to rest on. 

I also loved the song used in the trailer, "Castle" by Halsey. It keeps ringing in my head. I love everything else about this trailer as well. I would definitely go and see this in theaters. Also, on a side note, the three actresses in this are on my dream list of actresses to play Captain Marvel. 

What do you guys think? Do you think any of these trailers look good? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks for reading!
