Right...now I have your attention.
One thing that annoys me more than anything about the trailers I see at work is the fact that most of them have to feature sexy time. Even if they're not really huge parts of the film (and to be honest, when are they?). I may be the only one who gets annoyed by this (innocent girl right here), but jeez, it happens more times then it needs to.
Colombiana - Don't get your hopes up...what you see in the trailer is pretty much all you get in the movie. In fact, the 'romantic' strain in this movie is so unbelievably stupid that there's no reason why it should have been there in the first place. Still, amongst shots of an extremely skinny Zoe Saldana running everywhere with a gun is the sexy time. Oh, Hollywood.
Gangster Squad - Recurring theme: these 'sexy time' shots usually happen as a flash in the climax of the trailer. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are both incredibly sexy, but come on, was that really needed?
The Town - Spoiler: this is all the strip club screen time you're going to get in the movie.
Battleship - Well...that's one way to start a trailer for a movie based on a board game.
The Roommate - The whole trailer is a mess (just like the movie), but I don't get why we're given a little snippet of everyone's favourite character Rebecca 'seducing' a girl, which doesn't happen until late in the movie. And I'm sure you're all really excited to see the movie.
This Means War - I love how this one begins with some sexy time (and that is probably Reese Witherspoon), before it starts telling the entire story of the film and actually introducing Reese Witherspoon's character. Hmmmm.
Black Swan - The way I see it, they're almost spoiling important points in the movie just to get bums in seats to see that lesbian sex scene. Movie marketing for dummies never fails to amuse me.
So, what do you think: do you think these snippets are entirely pointless?
