Good Trailer, Bad Trailer: Interstellar and Night at the Museum 3


Christopher Nolan’s trailer, which gives us our first look at his alien world, gives me chills and makes me think that for once, “Space Oddity” would be a totally appropriate song to play over the footage…if only Ben Stiller hadn’t squandered it in his last movie.

And speaking of Ben Stiller and squandering: how do you get Steve Coogan, Ben Kingsley, Rebel Wilson and Ricky Gervais in your comedy and still ruin it? Hmmm…maybe by playing two roles, one of which is a painfully mugging caveman? Or by having your trailer’s big punchline involve monkey piss?

A study in contrasts, folks. Never thought I’d see the day a Matthew McConaughey trailer would be the clear winner.
