#Trailblazers BIG 3-TRAILERS

We don't have to be Cameron Diaz in 'The Holiday' to know movie trailers are worth a lot these days. Just check your phone from youtube to Facebook. And there's even more that goes into the cinematic craft behind them. Besides aside from the salted popcorn (yeah I said it!) a lot of time they're the best thing about going to the cinema...especially if you're about to see the new 'Transformers' movie. So much so like the obligatory ask from your date at the counter as to what film you're watching-even though you were just talking about how big a Tom Cruise fan you are these days-you'll almost forget the film you're actually about to see. So without further ado lets look at the top three, big blockbuster trailers that are blazing a trail like Portland in this Summer season of hot films right now. Lights. Camera. Coming Soon...

THE BLACK PANTHER (Teaser Trailer):  "What do you know about Wakanda"?! Well outside of an inspired interrogating reunion scene between Bilbo and Gollum-or Dr. Holmes, Martin Freeman and Ceasar, stop-motion king, Andy Serkis as they're more commonly known-it's Marvel's blaxpoitation comic flipped to the flicks. From the snares and screams of the raw and real, killer like Mike, Run The Jewels song that backs it. To the red Marvel logo gone signature style black like the 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' and 'Doctor Strange' cosmic turn. '42' and 'Get On Up's' Jackie Robinson and James Brown, Chadwick Boseman's panther power really steps into the spotlight like his ship over the stunning, futuristic right-now skyline. All after his 'Civil War' scene steal kicked Caps shield three times in mid-air. Even if a class cast of new 'Star Wars' resistance warriors Lupita Nyong'o, Forest Whitaker and the dreaded 'Creed' of a villainous Michael B. Jordan walked in handcuffs, who truly looks amazing threatens to do the same here. It all comes to a car flipping head though when the Black Panther lands on the back of his own vehicle again, looks ahead to the future of his franchise of franchises and we see his whole colourful comic city behind him to the beat of his own blinged out logo. Wakanda is his land. We'd just love to live in it. Even if we have to wait until 2018. C'mon we know each other...he's a friend from work.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (International Trailer 3): Marvel. Marvel. Marvel. Sure the cats out the bag now, but let's not forget about the other creature that made Iron Man and Captain America's 'Civil War' his own. Striking a deal with Sony, along came a spider and now Tom Holland's Peter Parker's 'Homecoming' is set to be the biggest superhero movie of the Summer (sorry 'Wonder Woman"), if not the year (sorry old-man 'Logan'). Spider-Man is back kids! And it seems like a new trailer hits the web each week. But the latest has got to be the greatest. And we're actually talking about the international trailer of all commercials. Even if it is lacking a certain Childish Gambino. A certain Donald Glover we just hope really is the other web-crawler, Miles Morales. For all the R.D.J. Tony Stark industry party crashing behaviour, it's Batman come Birdman, come full avain Vulture, Michael Keaton who has the best lines talking about "picking up" after the "rich and powerful like Stark" and "eating their table scraps". This really has the great responsibility of making for one powerful face-off. Expect the trademark Marvel and its most popular hero quips through too amongst all the 'why so serious'. Via some go-pro airport battle footage bonus scenes courtesy of the Daily Bugle's best freelance photographer. Making for some clips even funnier than those NBA Finals crossover commercials that see Spidey sling-up with everyone from Magic Johnson to D.J. Khaled?! And another one! The worlds changing boys...time your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man did too.

THE DARK TOWER (Teaser Trailer): "You crawling your way out the darkness?" Matthew McConaughey's menace worse than a devil in a black suit teases. "Did you tell the kid whoever walks with you dies by my hand" his vibrantly vile villain sneers. Alright, alright, alright Mud! I guess this is why playing Kurt Russell's Living Planet in Volume 2 of 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' didn't work out. No one quite has an ego like a man worse than the devil who warns his gunslinging duel adversary, who catches bullets in his chambers and shatters the glass he holds above his head, "death always wins". After more volumes than your bookshelf can handle before taking to topple, 'The Shining' and 'The Green Mile' legendary author Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' tales finally grows to cinema screens. And when it comes to the man who once referred to a kids raspy tongue pulling taunts to an angry wasp trapped in a mayonaise jar (under the Richard Bachman alias for 'The Regulators), expect the most definitive of dialogues for the new most quotable, cult classic movie. The only thing more striking than 'Luther' Idris Elba's long leather jacketed Gunslinger loading up two pistols of pellets like popping Skittles in a neon Times Square world that isn't his, is his ownership of some of the perfect prose made from a King for an outlaw. "I do not aim with my hand. Whoever aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father" Elba emotes over this epic, as a flashback sees the President from '24' take the hand of a forlorn faced Idris. Inspired. Even in the face of darkness, King's 'Tower' looks to kill with all it's heart.  TIM DAVID HARVEY
