Tuesday’s Top Trailer: The Avengers

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

The Avengers – Opening May 4, 2012

I didn’t even realize that I had already written about this movie back in October, but the newest trailer heightens the excitement considerably, making it deserving of a second spotlight. My worry with this highly-anticipated blockbuster has always been that too much of a good thing will lead to a disappointing two or so hours that can’t possibly capture all of its grandeur. A $300 million budget should help ensure that it doesn’t suffer that fate, and it should be the superhero movie experience of the year. This looks like the type of action movie that’s absolutely full of thrills, with intense sounds and visual effects on top of all of the superpowers on display. Among the most awesome moments in the trailer are the Hulk grabbing Iron Man as he’s spinning out of control and the whole crew circling up to find their enemies together. I love how each of the characters' roles are introduced, a brief reminder of what we already know they can do. There’s a reason that superheroes fully capable of carrying their own films are united together, and this should be an entirely magnificent and terrific Marvel blockbuster to remember. May can’t come soon enough.
