A mass of movie trailers: Ad Astra, After the Wedding, Plus One, Trolls World Tour, Under the Silver Lake

Movies! Movies! Movies!

Fortunately for a cinephile like myself, they never stop but keeping up with the neverending cascade of trailers can take a lot of time and effort, and were I to put them all on the blog, more site real estate than I could afford, and frankly that you’d tolerate.

So welcome to another instalment of A Mass of Movie Trailers were you can watch, luxuriate and ruminate on five specially-picked trailers of movies I want to see, and which I trust, once you’ve viewed the trailers, you’ll want to see too.

Can’t stop the feeling as the colorful, wondrous Trolls return for the follow-up to 2016’s breakout global hit about how far you’ll go for happiness… Trolls World Tour will continue to where the first film left off. It’s all glitter and happiness in Troll Town until Queen Poppy and Branch make a surprising discovery — there are other Troll worlds beyond their own, each defined by a different genre of music. When a mysterious threat puts all the Trolls across the land in danger, Poppy, Branch, and their band of friends must embark on an epic quest through unfamiliar terrain to do the impossible: create harmony among the diverse Trolls to unite them against certain doom.

UNDER THE SILVER LAKE

From the dazzling imagination that brought you It Follows comes a delirious neo-noir fever dream about one man’s search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders, and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.

Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.

From writer-director David Robert Mitchell comes a sprawling, playful and unexpected mystery-comedy detective thriller about the Dream Factory and its denizens—dog killers, aspiring actors, glitter-pop groups, nightlife personalities, It girls, memorabilia hoarders, masked seductresses, homeless gurus, reclusive songwriters, sex workers, wealthy socialites, topless neighbors, and the shadowy billionaires floating above (and underneath) it all. Mining a noir tradition extending from Kiss Me Deadly and The Long Goodbye to Chinatown and Mulholland Drive, Mitchell uses the topography of Los Angeles as a backdrop for a deeper exploration into the hidden meaning and secret codes buried within the things we love. (Coming Soon)
