Top 10 Trailers of September 2018

Film, games and streaming service originals - we’ve got a little bit of
everything for you. Welcome to, and today we’ll be
counting down our picks for the Top 10 Trailers of September, 2018.

For this list, we’ve ranked the best film, TV and video game trailers
released throughout the month of September.

#10: “Captive State” (2019)

Throw as many cerebral sci-fi films at us as you’ve got. So long as
they’re anywhere close to being as good as this trailer looks, we’ll
watch every single one of them. Set in the near future, in the city of
Chicago, “Captive State” presents an America that is apparently free
of crime, poverty, and unemployment. Sounds great right? But that’s
only the result of an extraterrestrial occupation here on planet
earth, which means that these so-called improvements came at the
expense of freedom. Starring John Goodman and Vera Farmiga, this has
the makings of a potentially great film.

#9: “Mary Poppins Returns” (2018)

She’s baaaaack! It’s with great trepidation that we approach any
sequel to a cherished childhood classic, but even amongst the ranks of
untouchable films, “Mary Poppins” remains a standout. With this first
trailer for the film however, we are officially sold. Emily Blunt not
only looks the part, but she lives and breathes the role. From her
grand entrance and her interaction with the now-adult Banks children,
through to the magical adventures she takes the children on, Emily
Blunt’s Mary Poppins is flawless. Add to that the use of 2d animation,
the songs and the overall nostalgic feel, and you’ve got one seriously
successful trailer.

#8: “Kingdom Hearts III” (2019) - Big Hero 6 Trailer

Oh how they have made us wait! We’ve gotten numerous trailers for this
highly-anticipated instalment in the fan-favorite franchise, “Kingdom
Hearts”. And yet, they never get old. Each new trailer brings with it
another reason to get excited, and in this particular case, it’s us
getting our first proper look at the characters and setting of “Big
Hero 6”. Suffice it to say, the critically-acclaimed Disney film is
clearly a fantastic addition. After Baymax and Hiro’s introduction,
this trailer also reminds us of just how many famous faces and worlds
we’ll be interacting with in this game. Monsters Inc., Tangled, Toy
Story… January 2019 can’t get here soon enough.

#7: “The Favourite” (2018)

Yorgos Lanthimos is a director unlike any other. After coming to the
attention of western audiences with his first English language film,
“The Lobster” in 2015, he followed it up in 2017 with the equally
challenging, bleak and unnerving film, “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”.
Now he’s taking his distinct brand of filmmaking to early 18th century
Great Britain with the help of a powerhouse trio of actors: Olivia
Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. From the looks of this trailer,
he’s infused the historical drama with his trademark jet-black humor,
which only serves to heighten the tension in this manic story of
jealousy, bitter rivalry and mutually-assured destruction. We can’t

#6: “The Romanoffs” (2018-)

It might not fill the void left by “Mad Men”, but knowing that the same
show creator is behind this new Amazon original series definitely
gives us hope for something great. “The Romanoffs” is an anthology
series that explores the lives of various people, all connected in
their shared belief that they are descendants of the Russian royal
family executed in 1918 by the Bolsheviks.This trailer presents the
show as a distinctly odder series than “Mad Men”, but one that offers
a unique exploration of interpersonal dynamics, family and identity.
Of course, the impressive cast on display certainly doesn't hurt.

#5: “Halloween” (2018)

Many a film series has gone astray, but there’s always time for them to
find their way again. After numerous less-than-stellar sequels and a
divisive reboot, the “Halloween” franchise is returning to its
narrative roots with a sequel that largely ignores everything after
the first film or two. This might not be the first trailer we’ve seen
for the movie, but it’s certainly the most compelling and revealing.
That long tracking shot of Michael feels like a moment worthy of the
original film, while little touches like the handful of bloody teeth
make the whole thing feel inspired and fresh. It’s not “Halloween”
without Jamie Lee Curtis and thankfully, this trailer puts Laurie
Strode front and center.

#4: “The Haunting of Hill House” (2018-)

With the success of “American Horror Story”, there seems to be a
renewed interest in horror television, which has certainly been
shaking things up in the genre. In October 2018, Netflix is bringing
us an adaptation of the 1959 gothic horror novel, “The Haunting of
Hill House”, and from the looks of this trailer, it promises to be
engrossing AND terrifying. The series explores the story of five
children who grew up in an exceptionally haunted house. The trailer
gets under your skin right from the start, teasing one horrific moment
after another, as well as plenty of looming dread. Just imagine the
horrors that await in 10 full episodes.

#3: “Luigi’s Mansion 3” (working title) (2019)

This one is admittedly more about the announcement than the trailer
itself, but talk about big news! For the Castlevania character reveals
of Simon And Richter Belmont, Nintendo spoofed the Luigi’s Mansion
series and had the younger of the two Mario Bros. meet a grisly fate.
Though Luigi might live in his brother’s shadow, the internet response
made one thing perfectly clear: people LOVE Luigi. Concern over his
apparent demise arguably overshadowed the Belmonts, forcing Nintendo
to clarify that it was just a joke and that he’s fine. Just one month
later, we’ve gotten our first peak at a new Luigi’s Mansion game.
Luigi fans rejoice, another spooky fun-filled adventure awaits!

#2: “Captain Marvel” (2019)

From the moment that she goes crashing into a Blockbuster Video,
Captain Marvel makes it perfectly clear that she’s bringing us
something special with her solo debut. We’ve eagerly awaited this
trailer and it delivered in every way. The trailer teases a story
involving amnesia, a Skrull invasion and one seriously powerful
intergalactic hero. Brie Larson owns the role, proving in this first
short teaser that she is capable of playing Carol Danvers as both a
complete badass and a nuanced, complex character. We get to see
Danver’s trademark photon blasts, a Young Nick Fury and plenty of
moments in space. Also, Captain Marvel punches an old lady in the
face! Marvel, you’ve got our attention.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions

“Resident Evil 2” [Video Game] (2019) - Story Trailer

“Daredevil” (2015-) Season 3 Teaser

“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” (2018)

#1: “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” (2018-)

We know what you’re thinking: how did this top “Captain Marvel”? The
aforementioned trailer, though highly anticipated, was every bit as
awesome as expected. But that’s the thing, we expected nothing less.
We’ve been curious about this dark spin on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”
since it was first announced, but we didn’t know what to expect, and
NOTHING could have prepared us for this trailer. “Riverdale” was
billed as modern, sexy, dangerous and dramatic; our first look at
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” makes the aforementioned series look
tame by comparison. This is like “Riverdale” meets “American Horror
Story”, and we can’t WAIT to see more. Also, who knew that Happy
Birthday could be so freaking creepy?
