Best/Worst Movie Promos: Pixar’s Still Got It! Christian Slater and Ving Rhames, Not So Much…

Oh, Adam Sandler. What are you doing to this industry? A new trailer for Hotel Transylvania just dropped and while it still rocks the film’s wildly amusing premise and cute animation, yet again, Sandler’s painfully recognizable voice extinguishes all of its charm. On the other hand, Seth MacFarlane continues to win big voicing Ted. Even after a number of TV spots and trailers, this whole stuffed-bear-comes-to-life bit still works well in the new restricted featurette, suggesting the concept can easily sustain a full feature.

We also got our first taste of two highly anticipated upcoming releases and, even knowing little to nothing about the source material, the situation and environment shown off in the new Dredd trailer is exciting and intriguing. However, Taken 2 doesn’t look like it’ll live up to its predecessor. The unbelievable action worked well the first time around, but, based on this new international trailer, round two feels more like a parody.

A new clip from Savages just arrive and while it’s not all that bad, Salma Hayek’s rant isn’t as threatening as it was likely meant to be. On the other hand, Channing Tatum can convince me of just about anything – in a movie about male strippers, of course. Special thanks to Magic Mike for wrapping up this introduction with a little eye candy.
