Which Award Category Can Bring Robert Pattinson, Kylie Minogue, and Tom Hanks Together? The Reelzie for the Craziest, Most Brain-Wrenching Trailer of 2012
12.19.12 by Mandy
Want to mess up your head for 2.5 minutes? Check out any of these 2012 trailers.
Trailers are intended to give movie fans a little glimpse of upcoming movies and to intrigue an audience to buy tickets for another movie. Many trailers accomplish that task admirably, but some trailers… well some trailers just mess with your head. For that latter group of movies we give you the Reelzie nominees in the category of Craziest WTF! Trailer.
Just like Stefon’s favorite club, this trailer has everything. Dream music, a Japanese café from the future, a white Halle Berry, tattooed aliens, hoop skirts, grown men spoon-feeding each other, a red-haired Tom Hanks, slaves, and dishes falling from the sky.
Matthew McConaughey has a jeri curl, Zac Efron is wearing tighty whities, John Cusack is creepy, Nicole Kidman has beached blonde hair and blue eye shadow, and some sheriff was apparently murdered. That’s all we can say about this trailer because that’s as much of it as we understand.
Ok, RPattz, we get it: you’re not just a teenage vampire. But can you please explain the Cosmopolis trailer to us now?
That One French Movie
For whatever reason, we can never remember the title Holy Motors, so it usually gets called "That One French Movie." The trailer starts out looking all right, and then just makes our brains turn inside out. Oh, and yes, that is Eva Mendes. That’s pretty much the only thing in the way of clarification that we can offer.
John Dies at the End
This movie has the distinction of having an extremely descriptive, yet succinct, easy to understand title, and yet the trailer is basically incomprehensible. For us anyway. If you can explain it to us, please take a moment and post a comment below explaining it to us.
After you're brain has recovered from watching those trailers, make your decision and cast your vote.
