“Pet Sematary” is one of my favorite Stephen King movies having been one of the first I saw when I was a kid (my first was “Cat’s Eye”). I remember the original AND the sequel both terrifying me to near death especially thanks to its macabre subject matter and its involving the death of animals. With Stephen King adaptations in the middle of a renaissance of sorts thanks in no small part to the success of “It” I’m not shocked that a remake is on the way. We’ve had numerous sneak peaks released this week including a poster and photos but we also got the first trailer for the film today which showcases what we can expect from the project. Considering I had already planned on releasing a Stephen King related top-10 tomorrow it’s only fitting that I also take a look at the trailer and see what this new interpretation of the novel might hold. This is my breakdown of the first trailer for 2019’s “Pet Sematary”. Want more Stephen King? Look for my picks for the Top 10 Stephen King Horror Movies tomorrow afternoon. ALSO because I will be comparing this remake to the original movie there will be SPOILERS in this breakdown so if you haven’t seen the first film or are unfamiliar with the story you have been warned.

Back in 2015 the popular childrens horror novel series “Goosebumps” got the cinematic treatment with Jack Black in the role of famed author R.L. Stine as well as one of the author’s most famous characters, Slappy the dummy. The film was a modest box office success earning $150 million on an $84 million budget warranting a sequel. Now that sequel is arriving in 2018 although this second film looks to be a bit different than the first, seemingly ditching Stine as an actually character as a new group of youngsters take on the living incarnations of the author’s popular monsters. The first teaser trailer doesn’t show us a whole lot, but it shows us enough. Let’s dive in and pick apart the details in the first trailer for “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”.

Could it “Bee”? Could it really really “Bee”? Alright bad pun but seriously yesterday’s first look at the new “Transformers” spinoff prequel “Bumblebee” turned out to be actually kind of cool and surpassed my expectations greatly. With five films now in the series the “Transformers” franchise needs a shot of quality film making to recapture the awe of the original. The first teaser trailer for “Bumblebee” looks like it might just provide that shot with sneak peaks at the central human character, Bee’s personality in the film and even a somewhat-surprise villain. Let’s break down the teaser trailer for Paramount Pictures’ “Bumblebee”. You can view the trailer at the end of this review. Please let me know in the comments what you think.

Does the first full-length trailer live up to that hype? Let’s break it down!
