The Ya Trailer Watch

Catch it here first! We are on the lookout for the freshest, hottest and coolest YA trailers as they come out, with the bare basics laid out for your enjoyment. Watch this space and enjoy, coming soon to a theater near you!


TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTELS (2ND TRAILER)
 
Most exciting thing in the trailer: Megan Fox (poor Megan Fox).
Weirdest thing: The Turtles themselves. They look weird. And not in a good way.
Did they show too much? No—and if the bullet-time slo-mo shot of one of the shelled foursome hitting a jeep on a snowy mountain is the best they can do, we are already underwhelmed.
Worth seeing it opening weekend? No. Hollywood has really got to stop regurgitating everything!

LOVE, ROSIE
 
Most exciting thing in the trailer: Lily Collins as not the prettiest girl around, and Sam Claflin (aka Finnick Odair!) looking cute as ever.
Weirdest thing: Definitely when the teacher, meant to lead by example, thinks it’s a good idea to project a clandestine online chat about a Sam’s loss of virginity for the entire class to see.
Did they show too much? No. We are intrigued!
Worth seeing it opening weekend? Depends if you prefer cutesy stuff like this, or Paranormal Activity 17 (we lost count, but the new comes out on the same day: Oct 24th).

FREQUENCIES
 
Most exciting thing in the trailer: The striking imagery at the very top, plus the general promise of perhaps a new addition to the burgeoning genre known as romantic sci-fi (dominated thus far by Another Earth and I, Origins director Mike Cahill).
Weirdest thing: The fact that the film doesn’t have an IMDB page.
Did they show too much? Not in this teaser. We want more.
Worth seeing it opening weekend? It’s a small film, but if you can get to it…

BOYHOOD
 
Most exciting thing in the trailer: The central concept and how it was executed. Hands down the most originally conceived film of the year.
Weirdest thing: The lead actor in his awkward years (the film is over a decade in the making, and it follows one actor throughout).
Worth seeing it opening weekend? For a newsworthy film by Richard Linklater (of the Before Sunrise series)? Yes, we think so!

LULLABY
 
Most exciting thing in the trailer: Garrett Hedlund all the way!
Weirdest thing: The amount of cancer-induced tearjerking drama condensed into one trailer, complete with a little bald girl getting her dying wish to go to prom.
Did they show too much? Just a bit (see above).
Worth seeing it opening weekend? We’re fans of Amy Adams (even after Man of Steel), so yes.
